Beach Retreat & Lodge at Tahoe

Reviewed 17 October 2017 via mobile

We were only here for a brief visit (overnight stay). The room was clean and warm. A little old looking and poor lighting but felt nice and comfortable. The clothes Dryer didnt work but I was refunded for loss of coins. Good parking. Nice location on the water.
They need more staff to deal with checkins and outs and enquiries as if theres a few people it can be quite a wait. We had the buffet breakfast which was great value for the $15.

Dear Hkcrawf,

Thank you for taking the time to write your kind review. I'm sorry that you experienced delays at the front desk and that our dryer wasn't working. We're glad to hear that you enjoyed the breakfast buffet and found it to be a great value.

Best,
Brandon

The Hotel complex was great lovely surrounding, with a heated pool and spa.
The building we were in C did not have a lift. Some buildings did. The room was ok with
A small balcony overlooking the lake. Breakfast was adequate but limited in choice.
Wouldn’t stay there again. Staff indifferent compared to other places we’ve stayed in US. There was also refurbishment work going on in the cafe off the lobby, Drilling when we arrived.
Be aware you will be charged a resort tax along with other taxes. We queried this and got it reimbursed as it was not quoted on our confirmation e mail

Room Tip: Make sure you have an elevatored building . Should you need it.

Dear Janaaah,

We feel awful that you found our staff to be indifferent to you and your needs. I have shared your comments with my team so they are aware that we made you feel this way. We will strive to do better in the future.

Sincerely,
Brandon

We escaped the Bay Area ashes to spend a weekend here.

Quality is standard motel: tub over shower, large TV, decent bed. Heater is a faux fireplace. Breakfast is an OK omelet bar. Dog friendly. Starbux is across the street.

WiFi was pokey, but that may be Tahoe. Smoker on balcony in room below us kinda defeated the point of a nonsmoking room …and of driving four hours to escape smoky air.

Looks like one of the better spots in SLT, but that’s probably confirmation bias. Like most reviews.

Dear MTM,

We're glad you were able to get out of the ash-filled air of the Bay area. Are thoughts and prayers are with all of those who lost their homes and businesses in the Napa Valley.

Kind regards,
Brandon

Stayed just one night in October 2017. Wished we could have stayed longer. Great resort. We had a beach front room. The views were beautiful. The room clean and roomy. The breakfast buffet was wonderful. Delicious made to order omelets. Every employee we came across was friendly and helpful.

Very good location, just beside the lake, you can go to the beach in a minute and the room is big and clean and comfortable. there are lots of parking lots, easy to park your car.

Very wonderful front desk service, when I checked in, I was told that room is not ready yet, then provided us complementary drinks. The front desk service is really good. always with smile and be polite.

I really like staying here

Dear Juny,

Thank you for your wonderful review. I think you may have meant to give us a 5 instead of a 1 but we won't hold that against you:)

We appreciate you and your business and we hope to see you soon.

Best,
Brandon
