“Great value in South Lake Tahoe”
Reviewed 10 February 2014

I was driving through SLT with no lodgings for the night when the Stardust looked like an appealing option to get some shut eye. What a gem. The room I got had just been renovated, had a very nice tile bathroom/shower (with two showerheads, and was big enough for two people!!), and a full kitchen and nicely appointed room. Included in the very affordable rate was free wifi, continental breakfast (which I missed because the bed was so comfortable, I didn't want to get up) and a nice hot tub and free DVD rentals. This place offered way more than I expected when I pulled over for the night just looking for a bed.

The front desk people were nice, the place was very clean, and I will definitely consider it again if I'm ever in town. Great place.

We have stayed 3 times at The Stardust over the last few years and our experience each time has been wonderful!
The staff are all friendly, and it is in a great location to walk down to the lake beach (which the Stardust gives you passes for) or to walk over to Harvey's for a concert or to any of the other casinos. Plus right across the street is a large shopping strip with a grocery store and many other shops. You are really right in the heart of everything at The Stardust.
The Stardust sign in the front is awesomely retro and when you relax at the front pool, you have the view of Heavenly Mountain...it is so, so nice. Both the front and back pools are very clean and have never been overcrowded.
The rooms are really cute and all 3 times we have stayed in the Studio room. Because they have Murphy beds, the room does not feel small at all. There is a kitchenette with dishes and glasses and you can Bar-B-Que on the Stardust's grills. One of the really super things about The Stardust is that the rooms have very large showers with double his and her shower heads...if you are staying at The Stardust as a couple, this is a romantic and fun extra as you can shower together without one person having to be "out in the cold" :)
We have travel frequently to Tahoe and have twice tried other motels in the area and have walked around seeing all of the other small mom and pop motel/lodges and nothing compares to The Stardust. On our last visit we also arrived very early and asked if we could just park our car and the staff person did us a huge favor by letting us check in to our room.
Tip: The Stardust participates in Hotels.com Welcome Rewards program!

Great location, spotlessly clean rooms,top top hospitality, especially the wonderful Dolores on reception. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting an affordable option to stay on the doorstep of the Heavenly ski area..

This place is very conveniently located right across from heavenly shops and gondola. The staff is super helpful and knowledgable about the area. They have free breakfast every morning including fresh donuts, boiled eggs and fruit and coffee and tea. They also have several other free activities throughout the week with wine and beer live music etc. I had never traded into this place and when they had a hot deal for $200 for the week I grabbed it up! In the summer they have bikes to borrow and they loan out snowshoes in the winter so you save a bunch of money staying here. They have two nights with homemade dinners for only $7 a person which is a good deal. I am so happy I discovered this place after all
this time staying up here. I will for sure look for this place again when coming up here. Staying here was very nice. The units have cooktop, microwave, dishwasher, full size fridge and everything you need to cook for the week. Also a huge double sided shower for two. Two nice sized flat screens too. You can't beat this place. Location, ammenities, perks and friendly staff come see them next time your in Tahoe.

I stayed at the Stardust with a group of 9 people staying in different units. Everyone in our group was very pleased. There has been a major renovation of the units and they are beautiful and so comfortable. The staff is awesome. Many thanks to Kenny and Jesse for being helpful and always pleasant. The maintenance crew, the housekeeping staff, and the front desk people were also great. The location, in my opinion, couldn't be better. The Stardust is located across the street from the Heavenly Valley gondola, 6 blocks from the lake, and 3 blocks from the casinos. A very nice golf course is about 8 blocks away. Also across the street are many shops and stores, restaurants, cafes, a supermarket, and a movie theater. I didn't use the pool or spa because it was so cold outside but they looked clean and well kept. Overall a great and friendly place in a good location and the renovation is beautiful. And love the morning donuts that are available for everyone!

Room Tip: Upper level rooms are quieter.
