Positive Reviews

Ideal location in South Lake Tahoe

Based on feedback, the hotel's main advantage is its central location in South Lake Tahoe. Surrounded by stores and restaurants, the property is just five minutes away on foot from the popular Heavenly Village.

Welcoming and friendly staff

The majority of travellers are pleased with the customer service standards of the accommodation. The staff members are labelled as welcoming and hospitable for the most part.

On-site parking an advantage

The inclusion of free off-street parking is an added bonus for guests that visit in their own vehicle. While the parking lot is purportedly not cleared of snow in the mornings, it is mentioned that there are plenty of spaces available to use.

Negative Reviews

Basic rooms in need of updating

Travellers often scrutinise the rooms provided by the accommodation. As well as apparently being in need of updates in certain areas, the rooms are considered basic and missing out on necessary amenities. In particular, the omission of air conditioning is lambasted, as trying to control the room temperature is supposedly difficult as a result.

Thin walls support noise

Numerous guests are critical of the hotel when it comes to the room soundproofing. It is said that the walls are somewhat thin, and this can result in noise from neighbouring rooms being an issue.

Nothing to do on-site

The no-thrills nature of the accommodation is often disappointing for visitors. Along with no breakfast or any form of dining available, the property has nothing in the way of recreational activities – which means there's little to do than just reside in the guest rooms.
