This is a great little hotel.... Room rates reasonable. Living room, full size refrigerator & microwave oven. You can walk out the door to the beach & lake. Very friendly & informative front desk personnel. We would definitely come back to this hotel.

We were so disappointed in the condition of our room 305. It was so run down. We could not even make coffee...we had to put the coffee maker mon the floor because the plug on the counter would not work. There was no room to work efficiently in the kitchen. The stove was about 1 1/2 feet long. The was... More

Everything was in good shape, just like it is every year. We will be staying here for many years to come. There is plenty of things to do at the resort, plus there is always Lake Tahoe. Would give it a 4 Star rating.

TSR offers a rustic cabin experience with the comfort of home. Very comfortable beds for a good night's rest. Office staff is very helpful and friendly. Best beach front on the North shore of Lake Tahoe.

Love this place. You can walk out of your unit right onto your own private beach, one of the largest and nicest around the Lake. Very few resorts, including the fancy ones up in the mountains, can give you such lake-side convenience. Plus there are so many things for the kids to do, and with updated rooms and a large... More

Our vacation was very relaxing and enjoyable. We couldn't have picked a more beautiful spot. We look forward to returning next year. Although there were things available to enjoy such as table tennis, Bocce Ball and swimming etc., I chose to just relax and enjoy the view from the balcony.

Clean. Probably more for families than couples. Reasonably nice room with lots of amenities. Good bed, easy access to beach. On the less-side, it's not quiet - lots of voices and activity (all hours) through the thin walls. But - very good place to plop down when you're doing outdoor activities around North Lake Tahoe.

Great location, friendly staff, nice, clean accommodation at Cabin 405. Our stay was for one night only this time; but we will try to visit the Tahoe Sands again in the future, hopefully getting a cabin on the lake beach side for the next visit and staying for more nights.

Couldn't have chosen a better resort for my first time visiting Lake Tahoe! Had the best experience there and their staff are super friendly! Iris and Jenny were the receptionist that assisted me and they were sweet enough to go out of their way to provide me with information on places to visit! Their rooms are very spacious and nice!...

The Tahoe Sands Resort. The sunny-side of the lake's best kept secret. Centrally located in Tahoe Vista, the Tahoe Sands Resort spans across four acres of open lakefront property and also offers a more private get-away hidden in the wooded acreage adjacent to the main buildings. Studios, 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom units complete with kitchens are available throughout the property. The large open grass area offers a great recreational space or a relaxing place for all guests. Our private sand beach, one of Tahoe's best, is just steps away. ... more   less

“Room 403, on the Mountain side, is about ten years past it's time for upgrade. If you do not want pets on the property, don't allow pets on the property, period. As a dog owner I understand we are not welcome everywhere, but your policy of partial acceptance is not a happy experience.”
