Very good location and reasonable price. The room we were in (studio) was nicely decorated, and it had everything we need and more!

really right on the water, beautiful view off the dock

It consists of a bunch of cottages next to the lake. Note that the studio rooms do not all face the lake. Also, some folks may find the studio room a bit cramped for 2 people. It's clean, and well maintained. No breakfast available though, but there are plenty of breakfast places nearby.

Nice staff, quick check-in. Close to restaurants, shops, good location. Clean, comfortable rooms, steps from lake. Only complaint was road noise. We had a lakeside room near the street.

Very lovely place in tahoe vista with helpful staff.nice view !!

The Franciscan was the perfect place for our long weekend stay. It was super clean and everything, including the appliances were practically brand new.
