Due to the staffs clerical errors charging us over $200 in room service fees which were not ours "but looked close to our room number" caused an embarrassing and uncomfortable situation when our credit card was declined at lunch, due to the staffs eronious errors, and also not having access to our money for 2 days which is an extreme inconvenience when you are traveling.
Very quiet rooms. Friendly staff.
We went to rent a cabana and chairs to sit on the shore. There was nobody at in the area of the cabanas. Later in the day we again tried to rent a cabana. We were told they had all been rented and the start of renting them was 10 am. We had originally tried to rent one after 10 am and there was no one in the area of the cabanas which were folded up near some tents which had been set up for another occasion. The "beach" had some rocks and the water was very shallow for an extended distance from the shore. The first 100 yards out from the shore was muddy water.
Great price and location the fireplace heated the room without having to run the loud heater
Room was a little small, bed was a little hard and uncomfortable
I really enjoyed the room! The bed and pillows were amazinhly comfy and the fireplace was a perfect touch!
I asked for a view and our balcony looked out to the parking lot. That was kinda disappointing. Also, with so many restaurants around the hotel and there being a tavern inside the resort it was quite silly that the room did not have a mini fridge. It would have helped the food stay somewhat fresh, even an empty refrigerator would have been better than nothing.
Overall very good. Nice beach and pool area. Room was very comfortable and clean
There were some loud people making noise quite late.
Great location. My room has a partial view of the lake.
Room is quite small. Bathroom, especially, is rather cramped. Entire stay was prepaid through Priceline, but I found a duplicate charge from the hotel on my credit card two days after I left. They were helpful and immediately reversed the charge, though, after I called about the issue.
Loved the beach front location. Water craft rentals right behind the hotel and decent restaurant as well.
Room was EXTREMELY small. Only got a shower stall. For $300 a night at least a tub or even a Jacuzzi tub in room would have been nice. Walls seemed paper thin
The staff was very friendl. The hotel is right on the beach of Lake Tahoe. The view of the lake was gorgeous.
The room was small.
Location and cleanliness
Staff were not going out of their way to provide customer service. They seemed like we were putting them out or getting in the way of other things when we made requests or asked questions. We had to request a fridge three times. Waited at check out for a much longer time than was necessary while staff communicated with cleaning staff. They are going through a remodel and seem a little stretched.
