Good locations

My girlfriend and I stayed at this location for he weekend. We both enjoyed our stay and found the location pleasing for the reason of closiness to downtown, cleaniness of the room and good pricing. No this is not the most upscale location but well worth the price. I recommend this location at it's reasonable rate.

Loved the location, next to everything.

The staff where polite and courtious. Loved the activities, miniature golf, had a blast. Food everywhere, take your pick. Coffee, ice cream, small shops for clothing, grocery next door and take it back to the room. See you again, hope my luck is a little better.

Needs that special something!

Great location - we could see the Gondolas from our room! Really in the heart of South Lake Tahoe - walking distance from 'you name it'! However, I have to point out 2 things. Rooms are very ordinary. My room had 2 double beds and it was odd to be there with my fiance. Looked like the hotel staff did not put much effort to find another room even upon my request. May be because I booked it through a website or they really ran out of rooms. But the hotel had 'vacancy' neon sign lit-up and it was not even a weekend! The bath tub had a small hole in it. I liked the free covered car parking though. Overall - clean but very ordinary room. Less value for money!

Great Location

The location can't be beat and the property is smoke free, which is a nice reprieve from the nightlife in Reno. The rooms are small but adequate. There's really nothing outstanding about the space- I would consider it a budget property that is clean, has a good ski-style breakfast, and an on-site Powder House ski rental facility. The hot tub is on the small side and wasn't all that hot (but it was quite cold and snowy while there). While there, approximately 2 feet of snow fell and the workers were diligent in shoveling and plowing.

Check out The Naked Fish and be there at 5pm opening or else you will wait over an hour. But if you wait for over an hour, it is worth it. Great quality sushi.

Good Location, but...

This hotel is in a great location for the winter slopes and to the casinos, but it is old. Our room door was open when we checked in and open when we came back on the second day after it was cleaned. Fortunately, nothing was lost. But when I told the front desk about the open door upon checking out, they did not apologize or seem to even care. Also, with all the stories about hotel room bed covers, this hotel fell into that group. We removed the covers and put them in the closet, only to have them back on the bed after the room was cleaned the next day.

Great location, alright room

The hotel location was great but we were not impressed with the room. The room was small for a "suite" hotel. The breakfast in the morning was not that great either and that is one of the reasons for choosing the hotel.

Loved the location, it's next to everything. The hotel room was big, but the decor was old. The room also smelled musty. The sink faucet in the bathroom needed to be fixed and looked like it was installed in the 60's. Other then that it was nice and cheap. I would stay again.

Nice Location

The location is great. Near stores, casinos, attractions.It is outdated and the carpeting and the elavator needs updating.Elavator was too small for a fam. and luggage.Otherwise we liked the pool and hot tub and to be under trees and not in the open.Is recommendable for a Fam. Breakfast great.
