We had no warm water for a whole day, not a single hanger to hang or even place jackets, clothes etc. Looks like a cheap motel that got a few self-made updates, but nothing is thought through. Wouldn’t go again.
Our family loved our stay at Hotel Becket. The room was very clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. The room looks like it was updated recently with modern fixtures, which was really nice. The hotel is in a great central location and walking distance to everything you would want to do in the area. Also, the staff was very accommodating to all of the pets who were staying on the property and they even kept a list at checkin of all the pet’s names who were currently on the property. The restaurant on the property, 10 Crows BBQ, was phenomenal and reasonably priced. Great stay and we would definitely stay here again if we come back to the area.
We stayed Christmas weekend, so prices were hiked up over what they would normally be. Positives: - Very close to Heavenly Village, walk to gondola almost as close as the parking garage at Heavenly Negatives: - shower was worst part of the otherwise recently updated rooms. Visible mildew around shower enclosure. - Noisy rooms. The room upstairs had children running back and forth and jumping off of the beds. Took multiple phone calls and trips to front desk to get it to stop so we could go back to sleep! Under normal conditions you can hear footsteps of upstairs guests. - Expensive holiday rates not necessarily worth it for the rooms. Normal rates may be okay.
Let me start with the positive aspects of the visit: Good location near super markets, stores, pubs and restaurants. The staff is nice and friendly, the check-in and check-out were really fast and they received my Dog Trixie with treats. Overall the room and bathroom were clean and comfortable, except behind the door were there was a big spiderweb (see attached pictures). The pillows weren’t comfortable as expected but there are two things that didn’t make my stay relaxing and restful. First, you can hear every single time your neighbor walks inside his room or opens or closes his door. The whole room crunched and moved every time they went out or in! So we were woken up in the middle of the night or very early in the morning. Also you hear every single person that walks or talks outside your room. Second, and the worst thing, the room is not sealed for the wind!! It was super windy and you could feel all the cold wind entering the room through the spaces in the door and a hole near the floor, super uncomfortable because the bed faces the door... I was so cold that I had to block in an improvised way the cold wind that was coming in. Not a relaxing or enjoyable stay.
Hotel was terrible. The bathroom door wouldn't close and would be wide open. We reported to management multiple times during our stay with no resolution. We checked out and were told nobody in management was available. Then called for weeks with no reply. Finally 2 weeks later a woman answers and says she will reverse charges. A few days later charges were still there. Called my bank.
Very disappointing, one Star is too much! This hotel is no longer a family/kids orientated hotel. We have been coming to this location for several years and lots of ownership/name changes. This new "team" has turned this hotel into a college fraternity party place. 10:00P.M. -2:00A.M, underage drinking, parting in the parking lots, smoking dope in evert corner of the hotel. The hotel has absolutely no control of this place! The South Lake Tahoe Police were at our hotel all night long "trying" to control the college students, but the parting continued. The next morning the front desk had a serious attitude about our concerns and everyone else in line to checkout. We're all told to contact the manager on Monday morning. Our family was forced to checkout early...
Hands down this property is by far the best in South Lake. My wife and I got totally screwed by another hotel just around the corner at the beginning of our vacation and upon moving over to this hotel, our vacation was saved. If it wasn't for Warren (Director of Sales) our trip would have been ruined and we would have been in a really bad hole. He is the reason we will not only be coming back to this property, but the reason we will be coming back to Lake Tahoe, period. Thank you Warren your the BEST!
My family of four with two young boys stayed in this hotel as a result of being evacuated during the Sonoma North Bay fires. Unfortunately, we had a pretty bad experience with the staff here and I would not recommend this venue to anyone as a result. In short, when being evacuated we called a number of hotels across California. We opted for this one following a conversation in which they said they said they would be participating with FEMA which would cover our costs. In the end, they did not honor their commitment. The non-challant and dishonest approach by the GM left a real dent with our family during an already traumatic time. We would have stayed in another location if they’d just been upfront to begin with. Other hotels in the area were indeed offering FEMA as well. Beyond that, place was ok but there are many other options out there.
I booked my stay here last minute and had a great experience! When I checked in, Stacy at the Front Desk was so warm and welcoming and she even remembered my name the next day. My room was large, clean, and well designed and the location of the hotel can't be beat. My only recommendation would be to have wine/bottle openers in the room. I went to the bar to have my wine opened and they were happy to open it for me without any challenge, but it would've been nice to have the opener in the room. Overall a great stay and I'd definitely recommend the hotel to friends and family.
We decided to give this place a try when our usual first choice, 3 Peaks was booked. Very happy & we now have a god back up. The BBQ restaurant that's "attached" is beyond great! The hotel is still working on an outdoor patio area; but the grassy area they have w/ cornhole games is very nice. No issue having our large dog here.
