“Stardust....Prime Location with Excellent Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2009

We stayed at the Stardust during the holiday week between x-mas and new years 2008. The room rate we paid was $175/nt which is higher than the average but was to be expected given the holiday season.

The main objective for our trip was a snowboarding vacation in South Lake Tahoe. This little hotel was in a great location on the main drag though south lake tahoe and into stateline Nevada close to the casino's.

The location of the Stardust was the main selling point for us. This place is within walking distance to all the shopping and dining options you can ask for in South Lake Tahoe (souvineers, groceries, fast food, sit down dining are all within a 5 minute walk of this place!) Also, the location of the Stardus is directly accross the street from the Heavenly resort Gondola. This make is very easy to put on all our gear and within 2 to 3 minutes you are riding up the mountain gondola to the slopes.

The staff at the Stardust was extremely friendly and very helpful with all our questions. The gave us a discount on their wireless internet (only paid $10 for the entire week instead of the quoted $10 per day!!) and they sold discounted lift tickets to all the ski resorts we hit during the week (Heavenly, Sierra, Kirkwood).

The Stardust does offer a modest contentinental style breakfast each morning with a variety of fuit, donuts, juice and coffee. The outdoor heated hot tub and pool were open each evening but not many people braved the 20 degree tempratures at night to enjoy.

The rooms at the Stardust are not you typical hotel rooms. First, there is a kitchenette with a microwave, sink, full complement of utensils and flatware along with a toaster, coffee maker and fridge. Also, the rooms come standard with a Murphy bed that folds out of the wall. With the bed down, there walking space in the room is tight, but with the bed up, there is plenty of room to move about. Additionally, there was a small dining table with two chairs and one small sofa near the door. Ths size was just right for the two of us, however I could see it getting crowded for more than two people.

The only negative comment we have about the room is the bathroom shower drain was very slow and we reported it to the front desk upon our exit from the hotel. Also, the parking situation is very tight in the main hotel area in front of the rooms. There were a couple nights we had to park on the backside of the building which was not a big deal as it only took a minute to walk around the building to our front door.

All in all, given the great location and friendly staff, we would definately stay at Stardust again.

The Stardust Lodge was the perfect place for us to stay during our visit to South Lake Tahoe. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful throughout the stay and check-in.
We had an updated 1 bedroom suite which was beautifully decorated with all upgraded appliances and furniture.
It was conveniently located within walking distance of a grocery store, shops, Heavenly Ski Resort, and multiple casinos. My husband hates walking, so when I say conveniently...I mean within minutes on foot.
The continental breakfast lacked some essentials, such as breads but there was a variety of tasty donuts and limited fruits to choose from.
Overall, I would recommend this resort to other families visiting South Lake Tahoe.

We were booked at Americanna, the Stardusts sister property. When we arrived we were told that our rooms ceiling had collapsed, and since we were the last booking (7months earlier) we were the ones to be moved. At this point I was rather discusted but had no choice but to try the Stardust. What a wonderful surprise when we arrived there, they were very accommodating. We had 5 people in our party, the rooms were very small, so they gave us 2 rooms for the same price. The staff couldn;t have been more friendly. They are about 5 blocks from the beach, and they give you an access card to the beach. They have bikes and games,books,puzzles all to borrow. They also serve a nice meal each night for only $6.00 per night. Nothing fancy but plenty of good food. They have barbeque grills for use, and nice kitchenettes. I would highly recommend this lodge for couples, or a family of 3. They said their rooms are really set up for 2 comfortably, and I agree with that. Good location too, however I did like the west side of Lake Tahoe a little better.

We stayed in the two bedroom Moongate unit. The unit and location were outstanding. Staff is very friendly and willing to help. Can't say enough about this property. Well worth it.

We found this lodging through a friend who had stayed there at Christmas. We stayed in the 2 bedroom condo-type room in the back of the property. The decor is a little different, (there's a heart-shaped bathtub/spa) but it was in good shape and I have to say it is one of the cleanest places I have ever stayed in. All tile floors and marble, which is great when you're there for skiing. The full kitchen was very nice. Flat screen TV's in the rooms. The location can't be beat, right across the street from the Heavenly Gondola. The staff is very, very effiecent and friendly. We used the hot tubs, and one of the pools was open for swimming. The price for a group of 7 was great!! The only draw-back was that the "recreation" room was rather drab. In total, a great value.

Booked online at $120 for a Saturday night for a room with the Murphy bed (folds down.) I was pleasantly surprised to be put in a room with a separate bedroom and full or queen size bed. Microwave, fridge and cabinets fully stocked down to a blender! Tvs and dvd players in both rooms. Sofa bed in Living room with a coffee table, ceinling fans and a great heater. I cant say enough about it! The staff was great! This place has an activities room, fitness room with towels, pools and spas, with a deck full of bbqs. Popcorn, donuts, fruit, coffee, tea and hot cocoa available in office. We got a goodie bag upon check in with full size products and sample sizes including lotion Schick Titanium shaver, Degree Clinical deodorant for him and her, cough drops, hair scrunchies,Alleve,tea,cookies, etc.. (All name brand!)
Location is excellent. Walked to Harveys and Harrahas in 2 minutes. Will only stay here from now on.

Can't beat the price, location for skiing/gambling. Right across the street from Heavenly gondola. 10-15 minute walk to casinos. Rooms are just what you need for an economy stay. Bed (murphy) comfortable. Room was clean and fresh. Bath and shower were beautifully tiled...double head shower. The place was quiet at night and the staff really was friendly.
