My hubby and I enjoyed our 4 night stay in a 'deluxe' one bedroom recently. We opted to check in the Sunday of Labor Day weekend in hopes that we'd miss the crowds. We used the "Manager's Special" rate on the lodges' website. Check in was easy, the room was wonderful. The deluxe units have an oven and a washer/dryer in the unit, are larger, and are more attractively furnished. Our room had 2 flat screen TVs with DVD players, which was lovely as there was very little to do at night in the Village during our stay (many stores were closed/limited hours until the winter). We enjoyed hiking straight out of the lodge, right up to Shirley Lake. The lodge grounds were very well kept, staff was not at all intrusive. The multiple hot tubs and pool were very enjoyable. It was too warm for us to sample the sauna or steam rooms, but both were clean and available. Nice game room and public areas with fireplaces and sofas, great workout room. I'm not a skier, but I can absoulutely see where one would love to stay here during the winter--great access to ski lifts, shops, restaurants, easy parking, you'd never need your car once you arrived! For summer travelers, access to hiking, Squaw's High Camp, access to miles of paved bike paths and numerous local bike shops made it a convenient place for us to get away for a few days. There's a mini market at the Village for incidentals, and there's a regular grocery about 10 minutes away in Tahoe City. Free ethernet in room was slow. No wifi and my ATT coverage was pretty poor in the room.

Our first time in this Lodge as our timeshare was full due to late decision to go to Lake Tahoe. We stayed at one bedroom suite, spacious and comfortable but I could easily increase the space by 40% if I were to decorate the unit. Too many furniture and decorations not necessary and only occupies space. Kitchen is useful and functional although it does not have an oven like other timeshares or rental resort we have been to. On our first night, I heard a very unusual noise that was so loud it gave me an headache and almost called the front desk to complain. The next day while I was preparing breakfast I heard the sound again, it is the water-heater. I think the water heater tank in our unit (319) is sharing the adjoining unit. The first night, our neighbor was probably taking a late shower and caused the water-heater to power on and we have no control over it and just waited about an hour before it powered off. This is the only complain we have on this unit, but if we were aware of the kind of noise it creates at night we would have not stayed here.

We stayed 3 nights here and was just what we needed after coming from San Fran. Found the front desk helpful though we never bothered them greatly.

Our condo was great. Nice bedroom area, seating area and well equiped kitchen. We loved being able to make our own meals and packed lunches.
The only downside was that it adjoined the condo next door and the occupants the first night were quite loud talkers! We didn't ask to be moved and the next night there were new people in and we barely heard them.

We had debated whether to stay here or in Tahoe City and think we made the right choice. It's a few mins walk to The Village which has as many restaurants as Tahoe City and a few shops.

We travelled when many of the US schools went back so the pool was never very busy and parking was easy.

The place had a nice relaxed atmosphere and because we were travelling for a few weeks it was great that they have a laundry on each floor which you can use for a small charge.

We hired bikes and enjoyed cycling along the Truckee River and around the Lake - beautiful!

We stayed in a loft condo with our teenage daughter and found the room to be great. You can save some money by eating breakfast and lunch in the room as we found restaurants in the area to be somewhat pricey. The Hotel was clean and the staff was helpful and you could easily walk over to the Village for shopping and restaurants. We took the cable car up to High Camp and enjoyed hiking while our daughter enjoyed the pool area. The food at the High Camp restaurant was expensive and not very good. Bring your own picnic lunch if possible.

We would definitely recommend this location and hotel.

We got a great rate for our "Deluxe Studio" - Bldg 3, Rm. 253 - and were delighted with it. We had a great view of the little pond and the mountain. All the fixtures were new and shiny, lovely amenities (soaps in bathroom, coffee in kitchen), the place was very clean, and almost everything worked. I made a call about a broken screen, and the maintainance guy came right up and fixed it. The housekeeping was inconsistent-- one day they would run the dishwasher, next day not --yet the place was always clean.
As at most places, the spa tub was highjacked as a makeshift "kiddie pool", which made me resentful that only one of the 2 were open. The pool area was nicely kept and there were plenty of chairs, but it's between several of the lodge's wings, so there's somewhat of a sensation of being penned-in.
Something of note is that there was NO separation wall between our bed area and the kitchen area. This is something I would advise asking about for those intending to book the deluxe studio, or the loft. A half-wall is clearly depicted on the website, but our unit didn't have it. Not a big issue, but toward the end of our stay we were tired of going to bed while staring at the kitchen sink.
Finally, the front desk staff. Okay, so depending on the day/hour, these were either a bunch of kids-early 20's- or middle-aged golfer types who said little and delivered less. I guess the best word to describe them would be "smug". We always felt like they were bothered by our questions. Very disconcerting for a traveller needing information, or God forbid, recommendations.

So the hotel gets big thumbs up from us, but the front desk staff really needs to take some happy, friendly pills. Or better yet, get training in customer service and communication skills.
