8/10 Very Good

Everything is great… except the bed
This hotel is great for a tahoe stay. Everything is walking distance, breakfast is delicious, room is clean. However the beds need to be replaced at this point. The bed springs have lost its life purpose. I woke up with shoulder pain during my stay. Not a dealbreaker though.

Great spot
This hotel was a great spot to stay. Right across the street from the lake. Close to lots of trails for biking or hiking. Within 30 min to several ski resorts. Minutes from shopping and restaurants. It was very clean and comfortable and the staff was super friendly. Overall wonderful experience
