Stayed here for the first time on the recommenfation of a friend who has had a great experience here in the past. We were very pleased with everything! Staff was very pleasant and attentive to whatever requests we had. The resort is a perfect place to bring the family. We went up for a long weekend get-a-way with the kids....

Glad you enjoyed your getaway with the kids! Lakeshore Lodge is a great place for year round fun. We've recieved great snow so far this winter so do come up to go skiing soon. Thanks for your comments and we hope to see you soon.

We've stayed here in the past and have had good experiences but our last stay felt like a fleece job. The place is on Lake Tahoe and has wonderful views and a private beach. The rooms have great wood burning fireplaces which are great on cold winter nights.Those are the pluses. Unfortunately, they don't appear to have updated the rooms...

Thank you for your comments. We are so sorry to hear your last stay did not meet your expectations. We have been updating and renovating the condos and the hotel rooms in the past 2 years but they are by no means brand new. I apologize that our staff missed some issue in the unit before you checked in. We...

This hotel is a budget pick with the balcony facing the beach. Picturesque view of the lake with the backdrop of blue sky and snow cladded mountains give the shot of your life. A walk on the beach with the birds around looking at the clear water is an experience... I just loved the location. The hotel looks like a...

Thank you for sharing your comments. We always say here “don’t let the outside fool you” It is an older property but we work hard to maintain the inside which we feel is the most important factor along with the view! Hope you enjoyed your time in Tahoe.

This is my new favorite place to stay in SLT and I've been coming here since I was born. The location (lake views) are unparalleled!!! I like the decor in the lodge rooms and the 2 bedroom condo I recently stayed in was fabulous too. If you like the idea of feeling like your hotel room is actually a houseboat...

We had an unexpected extended stay here the staff ensured we kept the same good rate we have from Expedia. The tea and coffee facilities in the common room were lovely, the fire blazing was wonderful. The room was charming, basic but clean with a great shower and decent towels. The only complaints was that the floorboards are creeky so...

The place is a bit dated but with the recent renovations the rooms are a little more modern. The rooms and furniture are clean. After skiing we always enjoy hitting the hot tub. The best part is the views. Stunning. Overall for the rates are very affordable considering that you are sitting right on the beach with the most amazing...

We were thrilled, we arrived in Lake Tahoe from San Francisco and found this place. We couldn't believe the room with a porch directly onto the sand. Absolutely beautiful view of the sunset. Wish we could have stayed longer. Plus found a funky cafe for breakfast behind. Interesting decor especially the bed!

This place is an enigma. It has incredible views from every room, but the rooms themselves are in need of some serious renovation -- in Particular old-fashioned popcorn ceilings and sinks that are decrepit. The lodge is actually two different buildings -- one with typical hotel rooms, and the other condos. The lodge room decor is typical Tahoe mountain kitsch...

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We have recently updated the hotel rooms with the new mountain lodge decor, new carpet, paint, and bedding. Believe it or not those sinks are only 8 years old. We are currently looking into options for replacements. As far as the condos go they have all been nicely updated recently...

We booked this expecting a rather more upmarket property, but found it to be more "motel" than "lodge & spa" - though there is a spa on the property. The approach on the edge of a car-park and the style and condition of the building rather let it down. We also did not particularly enjoy the unusual log-cabin style furniture,...

We are so sorry to hear your expectations were not met. We always tell folks “don’t let the drive up fool you” Once you are in your room and enjoying the fabulous view the parking lot will not matter. Surprised to hear about the log pine furniture as most folks enjoy the rustic lodge look and feel. Sorry to hear...

Spent two nights of our 3 week tour of California at the Tahoe Lakeshore Lodge and Spa. Don't be fooled by the first impression you get because it feels like your staying in a carpark.
