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.
