      The woman at the check in desk was very, very nice. We live in Reno and we stayed there because we had been invited to attend the birthday party of a friend so none of the above would describe our classification of the hotel.

      The room was better than I expected from the reviews on line. Beds are comfy, with extra pillows to boot! The bathroom was clean (though a bit tight), complete with the necessary toiletries. There was even a friendly sign informing occupants about availability of additional toiletries in case you forgot one. Cute. Clincher for me was the staff. During our stay, front desk person was Chuan, who was very accomodating, very friendly, served as our guide as to where the best tourist spots were. Even arranged for our sightseeing boat cruise! Location was great too! It's close to shopping areas, restaurants, casinos, and tourist spots.

      Nothing. Everything was great!

      Super friendly service. hot tub availability. HBO/cable tv. Continental breakfast is nice touch but should offer more choices of baked breads and cereals. Location is incredible, very close to Heavenly Ski Resort, Breakfast/Dinner restaurants, CVS, Safeway, Bank of America. $10 per night for pets is a bargain.

      As a pet friendly hotel, I was surprised that we were given a "different" room once we informed guest services upon arrival that we had a dog. The room appeared clean but the toilet was leaking water and seeped into the carpet near the bathroom entrance, leaving it soggy. Pillows were uncomfortable and the coffee maker did not have a hot plate to keep the coffee hot.

      This was a great little hotel & was real good value for money. Great location for all amenities & within seconds you were on the beach. Not only did we get vouchers for use in Heidi's next door for breakfast (fab breakfast) but you could also have a continental breafast at the front desk too. The staff were excellent & we found every one of them very helpful & always cheery. Will definately go back if we visit this area in the future.

      The location was very convenient to the tourist activities at South Lake Tahoe.

      The hotel was in need of refurbishment.

      The room was comfortable and the new bed was delightful. The breakfast in the morning was great.

      The lake view was not what I expected. Small space between to other buildings.

      We enjoyed our stay and have told all our friends to book there. I would stay there again. The staff was very helpful and the room was clean and very cozy.

      it was near Shopping Centres (Safeway and other Souvenir Shops) and Fast Food or other Restaurants. Not far away where the Casinos and the Heavenly Gondola. There was an excellent Indian Restaurant nearby (Nikki's Chaat Café). There is a normal and a whirlpool. They are both open to use till late in the evening. We stayed two nights. Friendly chinese staff. Gave us many advices what to do and also some vouchers.

      We had a bad Wireless Internet Connection in our room. But there was a free Internet Spot at the lobby. We stayed upstairs in room 613. Maybe downstairs it's better. You see the Router on the wall. The breakfast room was busy and hadn't enough tables. Knives were missing. Everybody took the same knives for butter, jam and peanutbutter.

      Rooms were clean and the staff was very helpful. We changed our stay from a Friday, Saturday stay to a Thursday, Friday stay and they made sure that we were charged accordingly. Very much appreciated.
