“Home away from home!!”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

Ferrari's Crown is the best place to stay when visiting Lake Tahoe. We have stayed at five star hotels/motels at various places on South Shore and North Shore and none compare to Ferrari's over all experience.
My wife and I stayed at Ferrari's in 1968, the first time we came to Lake Tahoe. We have since visited Lake Tahoe several times and have stayed at Ferrari's every year since 1990. Our children and grandchildren have spent endless hours in their two pools, jacuzzi and on their beach.

Any room at Ferrari's is fine but we have been able to stay on the Lake View front for the past several years with a beautiful view of the lake from our room, with the beach twenty feet beyond the deck. There are many nice restaurants and shops near by. We also enjoy cooking dinner on the deck using their barbecues while enjoying the lake view. Their continental breakfast is just right to start the day off.

Ferrari's is centrally located on North Shore at Kings Beach with the State line and Incline Village a few miles further south. To the right you have Tahoe City twenty minutes away. Safeway and Old Brockway golf course are a five minute walk from the motel. Fishing charters for big macs are ten minutes away.

Ferrari's rooms are always clean and comfortable. Their pools, grounds and buildings are always kept clean and maintained well. The staff and service are awesome. Best rates around for a top notch resort. There are only a handful of beach front motels anywhere at Lake Tahoe and this is the best.

Ferrari's is my "go to" hotel for all visits to North Lake Tahoe. The location is perfect, with private beach access, being in the heart of the North Lake region and being close to great restaurants (including Hiro's Sushi across the street), grocery stores and all sorts of options for fun in both summer and winter. I have stayed at Ferrari's countless nights over the last five years and always feel like I am coming home. They have hot tubs by a reservation system, which I really like so that I am not sharing hot tubs with a stranger. I normally get a room with a full kitchenette, but I have also stayed in other rooms which were well equipped. The staff is friendly and helpful and the hotel is clean and really comfortable. They also have a breakfast room. Free wifi is a plus. Incline Village and Tahoe City are only about 10-15 minutes away, in each direction and I love the central location. You cannot find a better value in all of North Lake Tahoe. Ferrari's might not look like much from the highway side, but it is a true gem.

We planned a last minute trip to Tahoe when the snow dropped and was able to book a decent deal on Hotels.com. The motel/hotel was close to the ski slopes we wanted to go (Homewood, Sugar Bowl and Diamond Peak).

We got there a couple hours early and were able to check in without any problems. We had one of the rooms facing toward the road, so no view of the lake. The room is dated (old carpeting and bed spread), but fine for a place to stay in during a ski trip. The heat worked well and warmed up pretty quickly. The room was decent sized with a small table for two, coffee maker, fridge and TV (about 20 channels, no HBO or movie channels). There are some drawers and area to hang clothes. The sink is separate from the shower/toilette. Shower had decent pressure. The bed was pretty comfortable, on the firm side. The pillows are somewhat soft and flat, but we were able to get extras. The free wifi worked for the most part, but sometimes was really slow. The grounds had an outdoor and indoor hot tub. The breakfast room is open 8-9:30ish and had a decent spread - hot chocolate, tea, coffee, raisin bread toast (with butter and cream cheese), bagels, yogurt, cereal, oatmeal.

The location was conveniently located near Safeway, the pharmacy, several restaurants, the lake, as well as the Crystal Bay Casino.

Pros: location, free breakfast, good shower pressure, hot tub
Cons: dated rooms, slow wifi

Stayed at a standard king bedroom. The location is superb and the view is great. Just needed to stay one night, so chose the most economic option. The ocean front room looked so much better. Next time I'll book that room....

Back to my room... The room was pretty small and old. Oh well, it seemed to be okay, until... It was pretty cold at night, and the heater didn't come on all night. And by then, the office was closed and no one was around. Used extra blanket in the room and the ones I brought from home. I complained about this next morning and the guy at the counter said with "big smile" I am so sorry, and offered nothing else. Yeah, I'm sorry that I picked this hotel.

Room Tip: Ocean front rooms may be the only ones to consider

Comfy beds. Clean bathroom and shower. Free breakfast includes oatmeal, cereal, and muffins/bagels. The breakfast could easily be improved by adding fresh fruit. For the price (under $100/night), we will definitely stay here again. Not worth more than $100/night through.

Room Tip: Ask for a lakeview room!!

Thanks for the kind review, that's everything we strive to be. Often times we run specials which keep the Lakeview rooms at $99/night (midweek). We look forward to seeing you again.

We totally disagree with this post! This is the BEST place to stay in Tahoe,You want to see BAD Rooms, next time you come to Kings beach, stay at the Tahoe Inn AKA: BATES MOTEL !!!! We have stayed at Crown many times and loved every stay,The people and help is awesome. We never stay anywhere else when we're in tahoe, So travelers check it out, you won't be disappointed.

Our daughters practically grew up on their beaches and played endlessly in their pools. The Ferraris really take care of their properties and they sincerely care about their patrons. We have mostly gotten the lakeview rooms because they are usually quieter than those out front. plus, you get a view of the beautiful lake. We have NEVER had a problem there even when our kids were younger. Great place right on the beach and reasonable rates. You can't go wrong!!

Marlene,

Having just finished our 58th summer at the Crown, I can’t even tell you how much this review means to us. Some of my very best friends in the world are some that I met playing on the beach here in the early 1960s and who now come with their grand children. Ferrari’s Crown has been our home for all these years. We “live” it every day and work hard to give everyone a good experience on the Lake.

Thanks for returning all those years and taking the time to write a review.
