came up for an overnight stay at the Lake, we drove up early and got to the hotel around noon. We were told we could not check in until 4 PM, the room would not be ready until then. When we finally got to our room, the garbage can still had trash in it, and there was a used tooth...

We had a beach view double room with a very beautiful view. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable. The staff are very helpful. I would have given a 5 if not for a bit of moldy smell in the room.

Brandon R, General Manager at Beach Retreat & Lodge at Tahoe, responded to this review

Dear Padmaja, Thank you for concise but great review. I'm glad you found our staff to be helpful and I'm sorry about the slight moldy smell. Usually, mold doesn't thrive up here in a our dry climate, but we've had an extremely wet winter. We're going through the rooms and double checking for any residual mold. Sincerely, Brandon

Great staff, great hotel, amazing location! We came during the week, during early winter so it was very very quiet & peaceful. Wish the Boathouse had been open, but we opted for the Tavern instead since it wasn't. Nice server, pretty fast service, good food. Hot tub was great. Room was perfect. Overall so pleased with stay!

This is a large, unpretentious hotel right on the shores of Lake Tahoe. The rooms are small but clean, and the bathrooms adequate but in need of updating. The bed was extremely comfortable, there was a refrigerator and coffee making facility within the room. Food in the restaurant was good, basic hearty fare and the service extremely friendly and helpful....

Brandon R, General Manager at Beach Retreat & Lodge at Tahoe, responded to this review

Dear Janet, Thank you for your most pleasant review. I love the use of "unpretentious" to describe our hotel. I spent the majority of my career at 5 star/5 diamond hotels and one of the things I like about the BRL is that, in contrast, it is indeed unpretentious. Our rooms are small, but our location is 5 star and...

I booked a lakeside view king room and was not disappointed! The staff was friendly and allowed me to check in at 2pm even though check in is at 4pm. I loved the room and the balcony. It was small, but was so quaint and comfy! The fireplace was a nice bonus but mine was on the fritz. Once the...

Really small room with not designated or available space to place luggage. The bed was a king and really soft, the bathroom was old school and did not have a bathtub. What caught our attention right away was how cramped it was so we took time mentally adjusting to the fact that our romantic getaway was actually going to be...

Dear Jean, Yes, we're definitely not known for the size of our rooms. They're more cozy, European style. I hope you were able to enjoy the time with your loved one in spite of the size of the room. I wish I had someone in my life to "trip" and fall head over heels. Sincerely, Brandon

Loved the hotel and location. Clean, comfortable rooms that are nicely decorated. Easy access to South Lake Tahoe restaurants and ski slopes. Friendly staff. Loved that they allowed dogs. Nice walk to the beach from the room. Looking forward to visiting in the summer.

Nice room, great view, friendly staff. It was a very nice resort, especially for the value that we paid for it. I look forward to visiting during the summer to propose to my girlfriend and checking out the rest of what it has to offer.
