A friendly staff greets guests at this homey resort. From the Big Pines Mountain House, it is a two-minute walk to the shore of scenic Lake Tahoe and a five-minute walk to the casinos, restaurants and shopping of Lake Tahoe Boulevard. The outdoor heated swimming pool (seasonal) is as popular as the private beach. Pets are welcome (fees apply).


Rooms

The decor in the 70 spacious rooms is standard motel fare, with floral or velvet bedspreads and a small sitting area, but all rooms come equipped with cable television, a coffee maker, free Wi-Fi and free local phone calls. Some rooms have gas mini-kitchens and gas fireplaces. Guests also enjoy high-quality towels, linens and toiletries.


Property features

After enjoying a complimentary continental breakfast, guests will want to curl up in front of a floor-to-ceiling stone hearth and gas fireplace in the lobby. With private beach access and a location that is walking distance from shopping and dining in Heavenly Village, the location is second to none.

Good value

Excellent location, easy walking distance to the Lake, Heavenly Valley Village, and Casion's. Room fairly quiet, carpet old and ripped, but good value for the money. Staff friendly and helpful. We would stay here again.

Fourth of July trip

My stay was great! Location is great and I have no complaints about the hotel. Staff could have been a little friendlier. Love that they are dog friendly. Pool was great too!

quiet & quaint!

we stayed here for our five-year anniversary in november so the weather was a bit nippy as soon as the sun went down. however our hotel room stayed nice & cozy with minimal noise even though we were only a few blocks away from the casinos & heavenly resort. some rooms offer fireplaces & a full kitchenette which is always nice. the hotel is tucked in a quiet nook of its own away from the main street so felt more private. wifi was responsive and the staff were really warm & welcoming!

Good low budget hotel

Hotel itself provides the basic necessities and then sum. Staff is kind. Hotel walls are thick enough, dogs stayed next door and they didn't bother me, but people outside could easily be heard. Do not blame hotel as they have quiet hours starting at 10. Best part is price and location. easy walking distance to Heavenly

ice machine not working! pool closed!

The lady at the front desk wasn't very accommodating...we arrived an hour and 30 minutes earlier than the check in time, which is 3 pm...but she didn't even try to ask anyone or her supervisor if it can be done! She said no! (we booked two rooms)...The ice machine wasn't working all throughout our stay...the pool was closed! I wouldn't recommend this to my family/friends. We went to Mont Blue to use their pool/jacuzzi. (they only charge $10 pp and the person at the front desk was very pleasant and really nice! Book somewhere else!

Good value

The hotel is well situated, clean, safe and overall a good value for the price. It includes a free breakfast. It is walking distance to shops and casinos, and just a few blocks to the state line. I've stayed here in 2012 and in 2014, and will try to stay here again.
