We recently had to overnight in Tahoe - I hadn't been there for a while and was shocked at the cost of condo's etc. So thank goodness for the Vistana!
Communicating with the staff/management was easy and efficient (thank you Leah!) and we booked a pet-friendly double-queen that found to be affordable, very clean, and comfortable. The room was much larger than average and included a microwave and fridge. Our 'door' was a locking sliding glass door to our own little patio that included a table/chairs and BBQ. We were there for a major snowfall so didn't use the outdoor amenities but could see how fun they'd be in the summertime. Smoking was allowed outside and our room didn't smell of stale smoke in the slightest.
I saw other online reviews that complained about things that I consider minor: the type of lock on the door, the curtains, etc. I thought the room was reasonably modern and updated, but I can see how some might think this hotel falls into what used to be called the "Tahoe Funky" category. You may be trading off the latest in spa/resort accoutrements for affordability, but for us, the Tahoe Vistana offers just what we're looking for: a clean, roomy, quiet, safe, pet-friendly room in good repair with a small fridge and microwave, and friendly staff to boot!
If we find ourselves in Tahoe again, I wouldn't hesitate to stay at this hotel.
