Awesome Weekend

Amazing location, super helpful and friendly staff. I locked myself out of my room within the first 10 minutes of being there (I know, I felt stupid!) and the front desk was super cool about it as well as offering suggestions for local favorite restaurants. The room was very comfortable and clean. I would absolutely go back!

Good location!

Fun place- it had good sized rooms and a nice pool and hot tub. It is across the street from the lake- not on the lake.

Lake Tahoe South - Better Options Available

The hotel was clean and staff was very friendly. If you just want a place to sleep at night, stay here - unless you're a light sleeper. The air conditioner sounds like a small plane and walls are VERY thin - you will hear everything going on next door. All rooms have a patio, which is a nice feature. However, our room overlooked the parking lot (where loud cars/trucks drove through at night and we saw people dumpster diving both nights of our stay) and a trailer park. Location is decent, but at night a bit of a walk from the best features of South Lake Tahoe. Decent pool area but the website makes it look a lot nicer than it actually is.

Great Hotel, Rude Staff

The hotel is amazing with an amazing location. It's right across the street from the lake and walking distance to many shops, restaurants, and piers! The hotel is very clean, and the room was really nice. However the staff was completely rude. I was told check out was at 2, and then the next morning as I went downstairs because my door card wasn't working they told me check out was at 11. Here I was trying to scramble to get my belongings together. As they spoke to me, they had attitude and I just couldn't believe how rude they were being. I was told by one of their staff members the day before of an incorrect time. I wasn't making up the time, I was told that time. They were not only rude to me, but also other customers. I overheard them countless times talking badly about other customers right after the customer existed to door. Act professional.

Fantastic couple's getaway plus the pooch.

We had a great experience at the Inn by the Lake. We arrived and the staff was very welcoming of our dog. The man at the front desk kindly offered us bowls for our dog (which we had totally forgotten). The room was nice and cozy and overall clean. I did not get a chance to hit up the hot tub but it looked like a good place to relax after a day on the mountain. I would definitely stay here again.
