Northstar California Resort

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Very up to date , and clean. Very cozy condo. Easy access to the Northstar parking lot.

Northstar is a wonderful resort, but the condos are extremely dated. Surely there should be plenty of money to update based on the prices to stay there during the peak season.

The property was very nice. Provided us with everything we needed.

From the pictures Northstar looks inviting and close to everything.... the pictures online couldn’t be more misleading. The place we are in looks nothing like the pics online. Basically it’s a low income apartment that is being rented out to visitors. Dirty carpet, tiny couch, oversized tables crowd up the space. The air conditioner doesn’t even work, and this time of year it’s very hot in the afternoons. Says the property is privately owned... so I’m guessing the owners sublet the property to Northstar. Also the property is located 1.3 miles away from the main resort where all the dining, ice skating etc is. The pics are very misleading.

Great location. Nice and quite. The resort offers lots of restaurants and shops, and it is only 6 miles away from tahoe.

Bed was a fold out of the wall bed and not very comfortable. Yet NorthStar skiing was 5 star

Not at all as pictured. Uncomfortably outdated. Smelt like checmicals. Very disappointed

Amazing location. Great comfy setup. My only criticism would be the TV and cable. They are a little outdated and the picture on the tv isn’t great. The picture size ratio wasn’t right so things were a little distorted. Otherwise amazing place and we will definitely stay here again

Good room with shuttle access to Northstar. The shuttles were prompt and also have an app to request .

It is a condo style place. Claustrophobic rooms, very old place , terrible beds, not clean. I was not aware that dogs are welcome at this place, so that was on a negative side for me (allergies and cleanness issue). Big dogs were not on their leashes, others guests let them just run around , jumping in front of you, which was very uncomfortable and frightening. We ended up leaving from Tahoe two hours after checking in. In addition, the receptionist staff (the girl who worked that day) was not friendly at all. She took our phone numbers and promised to call us as soon as the rooms were ready. That never happened . The only positive feature about this place - good location . We will never stay here again.

Great location for Northstar resort activities. My boys (7&12) loved it. Room can get warm in the late afternoon during the summer (no ac -- fan and vent-free evaporative cooler provided). Do be aware that there are a lot of yellow jackets in the Northstar/Truckee area. No stings on our family trip but there presence can be a bit of a nuisance. The resort is about 15-20 mins from Kings Beach on Lake Tahoe. We would return to the Northstar resorts.

First time to Tahoe and had the opportunity to enjoy this resort... Great accommodations and amenities! Had an unforgettable time...would go here again any second...a perfect place to enjoy nature and gorgeous views

Everything was excellent from the staff to the condo we stayed in. The whole trip was amazing!

Room needs updating all around, new furniture and decor. Everything was old and outdated. Bed was very soft.

Comfortable studio with a queen bed and sleep sofa, and a fully equipped kitchenette. We did not use the kitchen though as the Northstar village is a short walk, and there is even a shuttle service to get there in under 5 minutes.

We were charged a daily resort fee. This fee was not on our original confirmation email we paid for the stay in advance and no fee was indicated. We then saw the added fee on our charge card after our stay

These condos are owned by owners. This was not a hotel. No air conditioning at all. Dirty room, carpet needs to be replaced, overall place needs to be upgraded. Very outdated and dingy. Not a 3 star category. Very misleading pictures. This place was a dump, more like a motel 1 star or 2.

This hotel is beautiful. The one bedroom suite was perfect. The full kitchen was really a full kitchen. The views are incredible. The onsite shops and restaurants are centrally located and easily accessible. The gondola up the mountain is a great way to see the area and access the great hiking and bike trails. This location is some what central. It is easy to get to Kings Beach and to Squaw Valley. I would recommend this hotel. Kyle at the front desk did an awesome job of laying out the property and all it has to offer. We had a great stay at the Northstar resort.
