“Very Good Property”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2011

Stayed here in August. In my opinion, this is the best property in South Lake Tahoe, if not the entire lake area. The hotel was spotless, staff friendly and helpful. Great, great location close to lots of of dining and a good number of shops. Hotel has their own beach access about a half mile from the resort. Wonderful kids center, daily activities, two concierge desks. Hot Tubs were wonderful on the chilly August nights, and the pool a welcome relief during the warm days.

Only drawback was the expense of parking and having to valet the car. I'm sure Marriott can line their wallets with this extra, unnecessary expense. $25/day is crazy.

We have been staying at the Marriott Timber Lodge for several years. The Timber Lodge has everything on site or nearby that we enjoy every year. The entire staff is always very helpful and goes out of their way to help us. The accomodaitons are very generous and improve every year. As long as we are able to travel, we plan on staying their at least once a year.

A fabulous destination demands fabulous accomodations. We were not disappointed at all in this property. Great location at the foot of the Heavenly Ski Lift, steps away from Nevada casinos and in the middle of some fun shopping. I wish we'd had more time to stay...like a couple of months. We tried to see everything we could while there. The lake is spectacular, and the drive around it worth every mile. CalNeva Resort is a hoot and a great mid-point for lunch. Yosemite IS NOT a day trip...we found out...but so worth the effort. The property itself is clean and family friendly (if you're into that sort of thing) and quiet enough if you're not. Great pool and hot tubs.

Room Tip: You can add another bedroom and bath to the standard suite making it perfect for two couples. No ne...

marriott timberlodge is the whole vacation package. location can't be beat. we stayed in corner room in Alpine bld. very large 2 bedroom suite looking out on gondola and Fire and Ice. A few steps away is shopping in Heavenly village and a block down street are casinos. Raleys food mart a short walk away. Beautiful pool. room was fully stocked and clean. we called down for extra pillow, cutting board and they make it a point to deliver whatever you ask for in 20 min. they even called room to check that item arrived.we ate at The Brewery (hamburgers abd bbq) and Freshies (teryaki chicken, everything organic) and both were good. took Tahoe Queen boat tour and that was very enjoyable as well although they could update their narration and not be so repetitive. but tour did give gorgeous views of lake, mountains and Emerald bay. i would definitely recommend Timberlodge.

Room Tip: request corner unit or balcony

We stayed for a week last April and liked it so much we returned for another week. We stayed in a 2 bedroom villa and it was immaculate. The furnishings are new and in great condition. The beds are so comfy and the full kitchen is wonderful, especially if you are traveling with a family. We think the rooms are fairly quiet, as we didn't hear our neighbors and the hotel was quite full. For those that complained about no onsite restaurant, there are several restaurants and a coffee shop on site, and within the complex, and a grocery store across the street. There's also a movie theatre, ice cream shop, and several retail shops. There are some chain establishments within walking distance, like Applebee's, sub shop, etc. Of course, the most convenient thing about the hotel is that it is at the base of Heavenly. You literally walk out of your room and onto the chairlifts. The valet parking service is a bit pricey. It's waived for owners. I found most of them very helpful. One gentleman even helped me load a cart with about 10 grocery bags. Also, they are always patient when loading and unloading kids and our truckloads of stuff! There is a kids activity center, which is really nice. We did arts and crafts on several occasions and the staff was very nice. The lobby staff handed out cookies on some afternoons. The pools are large, clean and heated, thankfully. There are also several (4-5) small hot tubs. The housekeeping staff was good, replacing items quickly when we called. I really cannot think of anything negative to say about this hotel. We love staying here. Our kids had a great time. We will be back again.

We recently spent one night at this Marriott and it was great. The staff was very friendly. They helped us mail a package and answered all our questions. The rooms were very clean and smelled wonderful. The bed was very comfortable. I wish we would of been able to stay at this hotel longer. They offered activities for the kids every day, like there was an ice cream social in the lobby the day we got there. We were walking distance to a grocery store, shopping and restaurants. I highly recommend this hotel.

Went here for our honeymoon and it is a perfectly located base for skiing with the Heavenly gondola right in the grounds of the hotel. The fire pits and restaurant were a great to relax in after skiing and the prawns were fantastic. Only issue is that check out time made it departure difficult because everyone departed early at the same time and staff were not prepared for this with valet parking taking too long and no trolleys available for use to move our luggage easily. This said, usual American high standard of service was received. Following our visit we stayed in a cabin by the lake and this would be our preferred return location because of the space and cheaper price, once you aclimatise yourself to the location.
