My wife and I had stayed in South Lake Tahoe before, but this was our first time taking our 4 year old daughter so we decided to stay away from the casino resorts. We are actually owners at Marriott Timber Lodge but had never stayed (sold us on the place while we were staying at Harrah's). We are glad we finally did, though! We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit with full kitchen. We don't ski, and we come from a part of Texas that rarely ever sees snow. Our daughter had a blast playing in the snow in the morning and in the resort pool in the afternoon. The concierge service helped us setup a horse carriage ride and recommended places to go to just enjoy the scenery. The kids club was very nice to our girl, who kept asking to go back. The resort is an easy walk to many things. There is plenty of shopping and food, as well as the lake and casinos. And if you are a skier, the Heavenly Gondola is right outside the door to the hotel. A fun thing to do, just for a tremendous view. The Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course is about a mile away. A beautiful course!
As far as the room, we found it clean and quiet. Everything you can need for a short or long stay. There is a grocery store about a block or two away, so you can load up on groceries if you don't want to eat out every meal. The room did not seem dated to us as far as decor goes. Lodge style.
I would recommend the resort to anyone. I will say when I have been there in the heart of ski season it can be a little hectic, but I think that is common for most ski resorts. Not a flaw of the resorts. We have also been in the area in the shoulder season, and you almost feel like you have the run of the town. If you are looking to stay in South Lake Tahoe, you can't go wrong with the Marriott Timber Lodge.
