Reviewed 24 October 2013

Right across the street from a good beach in Tahoe Vista. Would stay there again. Nothing fancy, but included a breakfast in the lobby and we used the hot tub and pool. Bed was firm, got a bit warm one night, but used the fan and that helped a lot.
The staff allowed us to use their hiking book. Went on numerous wonderful hikes. Rented kayaks from vendor on beach across from motel.

Firelite Lodge provided us with a nice clean room, great location at a reasonable price. We will definately stay there again but we will make sure to get one of the rooms that face towards the lake with the small balcony.

Room Tip: Choose room on third floor facing lake with balcony if possible.

The Firelite is clean and well located. They do have a hot tub, but no towels or robes, so you need to cross parking lot in your bathing suit. Staff were polite, but not welcoming. It is not bad for a motel, but that is all it is.

We stayed 2 nights and found the accommodation to be really nice and comfy. We'd opted to spend a little extra and have a room overlooking the lake with balcony.... Good move, the room was spacious and really nicely refurbished, very clean...View great, and in warmer weather it would be lovely to take advantage of the little balcony with table and chairs you can sit on al fresco.Appreciated fire as weather turning chilly. Bed comfy, pillows the softest I have ever had! The outside doesn't do justice to the inside. Room also had Mini kitchen with microwave, fridge, coffee maker.... Would be made perfect if there was a small amount of crockery and cutlery. We had a small dining table in the room and bought food in one night. Everything else you can think of provided including tv and wi-fi. Breakfast fine. Would defo stay again.

Room Tip: If you can get a room at top with balcony and view, it was only a few dollars more and in my opinion...

We stayed the weekend at this motel. We stayed on the bottom floor, which I was concerned we would hear people upstairs. I was also concerned because there was no air conditioning in the room, just a smallish fan on the floor. I was really surprised that the room stayed pretty cool during the day and we didn't hear anyone above us. We really enjoyed staying at this location and will most likely stay here again when we travel back. The staff was pleasant as well and they do serve a continental breakfast in the morning. The room had 2 queen beds that were comfy and the room has a fridge, microwave, and small coffee maker in the room. The rooms seem to surround the courtyard pool.

Across the road from the lake access to a beach. Large Safeway supermarket 5min driving away. Rooms have microwave oven, sink, coffee machine& mugs, wine glasses & corkscrew but no plates or cutlery..we bought disposable picnic ware from safeway. Super refurbished bathrooms, plenty luxury soft towels. Electric flame fireplace you switch on from wall thermostat. Could have done with small dining table and chairs, we had to pull out the writing desk and use the one chair provided and edge of the bed. Room 8, 1st floor overlooks small pool. Complimentary self serve breakfast: cereals, fruit, refreshments, waffle maker, breads.

Room Tip: Small lodge so looks like all rooms face the small pool. 2nd floor access stairs only. Room 8 on cor...

Great value and well done renovation. Room was nice and very clean. Beds were comfortable as surprisingly were the pillows. Only small downside was the traffic noise but not enough to rate lower than excellent.

Room Tip: Level 2 has a sneak peak of lake and level 3 has great views......
