Holiday Inn Express South Lake Tahoe
Ranked #21 of 65 Hotels in South Lake Tahoe
Reviewed 15 June 2014 via mobile

Stayed one night on points- wouldn't have paid here. Breakfast was pitiful- poor quality and few options. Desk staff seemed a bit confused and gave some vague suggestions for areas to hike and no idea what was good for food- although the options are limited. IHG platinum status did nothing at this property- no rooms to really upgrade to all basic. Room was fine and above average decor. could hear those walking above you so ask for a second floor. If you can afford go to hyatt regency Lake Tahoe resort.

Dear MrGreen21,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about our hotel and for being an IHG Rewards Club Platinum member. It is truly regrettable that our breakfast selection and room accommodations fell short of your expectations. I appreciate all your comments including those about the noise levels and the information provided by our front desk. Rest assured that these will be taken into serious consideration towards improving our facility.

I hope that you give us another chance to host you again as we would love to regain your faith in us.

Sincerely,

Faith R
Case Manager

No it isn't on the lake but the location is still good. The staff is super friendly. I have a small service dog and there were no issues. We stayed for two nights and found this hotel to be an outstanding value.

Was only here to sleep and eat and this hotel does both perfectly. Good location in south Lake Tahoe close to the Nevada border if gaming is your thing. Plenty of free parking and a very comfortable room that was well decorated. The bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was great with lots of options. Perfect home base for hiking and water activities.

The hotel is ok, the room could be a bit bigger, but the setting of the hotel is excellent, not just on the road but far enough away from it that the noise of the traffic is absent in the room.
The hotel is Holiday Inn express and that is just as it is.
Breakfast is ok, the area maybe a bit small but clean and there is always somebody to fill the buffet.
The pool is nice, heated, and the pool area is pleasant and clean.
The only negative site is that the rooms are dark because of the trees but also because it is build to keep the sun out of the rooms.

The staff, everybody, is friendly and is doing its best to help you, complement.
It will be difficult to be friendly all day on, week after week, but here they succeeded.

Room Tip: The three ( 3 ) is the most dark one and has no elevator

Been heading to South Shore in the Summer the last 40 years, stayed pretty much at every motel in the area, now with kids, pretty much settled here. Definitely can find cheaper but quality makes up for it.

Rooms have always been way big even standard double bed version. Pool is shaded so can be cold sometimes. Breakfast is standard HIX and dining area is small. But there's Carrows in the same parking lot. Location is great, easy walk to Stateline and across the street from the Raley's shopping center. Obviously, no private beach access as some of the other motels and a decent walk.

But overall, worth it unless you want to be adventurous with the other motels.

No thrills hotel, but you will find everything you need for a getaway trip at lake Tahoe. Parking is very convenient, rooms are clean, location is central - you can get to major attractions by foot. We especially enjoyed the pool. I also liked a lot of trees on the property; if feels as if you are living in a forest. The staff gave us good recommendations on what to visit and what to see. Thank you!

We made some last minute changes to our reservation and they were more than accommodating. The location was very close to everything (within walking distance), the breakfast was good, everything was clean and well kept up.
