“Love This Place!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

I just came back from a 4th of July stay in Tahoe. After driving into town last minute and trying to find a place, I came across the Stardust, Erinn at the front desk was awesome and very accommodating! The location is perfect, close to casinos, walking distance to Lakeside Marina and Beach! She even gave us a beach pass so we didn't have to pay. Beach towels, the works! The room was a Studio and it is Beautiful! Has all the amenities you could need, modern design, great stone designed double shower heads, fridge, everything! It was very comfortable, just a little warm inside, only a ceiling fan and floor ac unit but we made due. It was a hot weekend! All in all, I think this hotel is great with great service! Free popcorn in lobby, free breakfast, fun little pool and BBQ facilities on site! I'm definitely staying here again! Thanks Erinn for all your help!!

All the staff at Stardust Lodge were very helpful and courtesy. Since this is an owners lodge they provided two evening meals which were excellent. We received one free meal and the other one you needed to pay for. Since the manager knew that we were affected by the high altitude he gave us the second meal free. There were many activities that children could participate in which allow the parents to have some free time. I would recommend this lodge to anyone as you are within walking distance of shopping, restaurants, casinos and a private beach.

Room Tip: The upper floors are more quiet then the first floor. Selecting a one bedroom you have an actual bed...

We love the Stardust Lodge. We have been coming up to Lake Tahoe for the past 10 years and always enjoy staying at the Stardust Lodge. The staff is always friendly and accommodating. Kenny the Manager is a great guy and knows all about Lake Tahoe. Jose and Kate at the front desk are so helpful. The grounds are always kept up with plenty of colorful flowers in the planters, The renovated rooms are fabulous. It's a great location with shops, restaurants, casinos and gondola within walking distance. Great job Stardust!!

When we feel like getting away from it all, we like to "get away" to South Lake Tahoe. When we get to South Lake Tahoe we will now, only stay at The STARDUST. From the outside the Stardust looks very modest, however the remodels on the rooms are absolutely extraordinary and very cozy! The staff is very friendly and seem to genuinely care about the comfort of their guests. Everyone we met from Jose at the front desk to Kenny the resort manager was very concerned with giving us the Best customer service possible. We are forever grateful to Jose who suggested we stay in our new favorite suite at the Stardust and will always request this suite when we stay in South Lake Tahoe. I recommend the Stardust to anyone staying in South Lake Tahoe as it very convenient to everything and the staff is the most genuine and hospitable in the area!

We stayed here for 2 nights while exploring South Lake Tahoe as we were moving across country. As we were in a 12' moving truck, we wanted somewhere walking distance to many attractions. This location was perfect! Gondola was across the street, casinos were an easy 5 min walk as well as plenty of restaurants and shops in both directions. Also, the Stardust gives you access to a beach thats a short walk from the hotel. And for being on the main drag, we had no issues with road noise from our inner unit....people waking up early and chatting in the parking lot, yes, but not road noise :) They also offered free bike rentals so you could explore that way if you'd like as well. They do have a public transit system in SLT with a stop on the corner from the hotel but it only runs by about once an hour so plan accordingly if you want to go that route!

After a "brisk" dip in the lake, coming back to the heated pools and hot tubs (2 of each) was great.They even have "adult swim" hours in the front pool and tub during the afternoon so that you could enjoy a little time without the kids (dont worry, they still had the back pool to enjoy). They had a DVD rentals and hot chocolate in the office so you could lay low after your swimming and walking :) There are tons of family-oriented activities the hotel offers throughout the weeks too- for example, while we were there, they had a a s'mores and hot chocolate hangout over the firepit!

As far as the room goes, it was a quaint, super clean room with a murphy bed and small kitchen but a pretty HUGE shower! The staff was AMAZING!! soo helpful and quick! Id say it is on the pricey side if you're looking at the room alone but the amazing service, great amenities, and peace of mind for safety and convenience made the price well worth it in my opinion! Highly recommend it!

A great location! Events are fun and relevant for the whole family! A must stay!!! We really liked that we could use the bikes for free for the day. Stardust us right across the street from the gondola. The free donuts every morning were a real treat! Karaoke night and music by Fabrizio were really fun!!

Room Tip: Pack warm clothes, especially if you take the gondola up the mountain.

Every chance I get to come to Tahoe, I take it. I always stay here. The rooms are fantastic, level of service is wonderful and the employees treat you like family. We stayed one weekend in a one bedroom, the penthouse became available for our second night stay so we took the opportunity and we decided to move. The penthouse was beautiful. Everything you could need was there. It had its own private balcony/patio. It was like staying in a condo. Two full families were able to share this and no one felt as if they were crowded. We defineltu had our own privacy with the way it is set up.
Kenny is great, always happy to see you and does a flawless job at making you feel like you are his priority. Fernando is usually in the activities center and greats you with a smile and assures you are set with any activity you do.
The men who work diligently to keep up the grounds are usually around everywhere and they always take the time to shoot you a smile.
The ladies who hustle to get the rooms cleaned as fast as they can so you can in as early as you can do it with urgency and a smile at the same time.
I can't say enough positive things about the entire staff here, I can only show by always retuning as much as I can!
