The room smelled odd. The shower barely worked - super low flow and the hot water didn't last long at all. The heater in my room broke and they could not fix it or move me to a better room so I was freezing cold the entire time. No customer service to make up for the poor quality and experience I had. Overall just an awful experience. Should have stayed at Harrah's and paid the extra $100 for their hotel. Not happy at all.
bathtub and shower feature is good, bathroom counter space is good, two separate vanity/sink areas is good, refrigerator in room is good, chaise was uncomfortable, mattress was uncomfortable, pillows were not comfortable, they were down and they flattened out to nothing, lighting was poor and the drawer space for clothing was poor, dresser is old outdated and banged up. Rooms need updating.
Great location, close to shopping and other activities Hotel room has no fridge or microwave, only hotel I've ever stayed at that dudnt have both in the room
Cleanliness and Friendliness of the hotel
Close to concert. Great room with a view of Lake Tahoe. Starbucks conveniently located close to the elevators. Bed was not very comfortable. We stayed across the street at Harrahs last time and the bed was better. However, we liked the room much better at Harvey's.
Cleanliness of the hotel was consistent. I had to stay at two nights in two different rooms in the 18th floor which they gave me a perfect view of the fireworks during the opening of the gold tournament. Especially the cleanliness of both rooms was satisfied. I loved the valet free parking except tips only. The second night I thought the front desk would rush the room to be ready within the time I checked out the first night but they called after fee hours. Also no one ever answered the front desk when I called from the room in the morning.
Too many broken down elevators
Room and bed
The rooms were very nice; great bathroom, comfortable bed, and the casino was nice as well. Strange arrangement of the electrical outlets. No real easy place to charge your phone and be able to access it in bed unless you happened to bring an extension cord with you.
We liked everything. Rooms were awesome with comfortable beds, very clean and updated bathrooms, food was excellent, gambling was great, and a perfect location for shopping or to do anything around the lake. Can't wait to stay again.
Our room was so nice. In the lake tower on the 14th floor. Great views! There nothing we didnt like.
The free breakfast The overly expensive room service
Great location, cleanliness, and price Tiny body towels in bathroom after shower, it would be nice if they were bigger
Close to restaurants, entertainment and gondola to Heavenly resort
Great location and price. Very clean and the indoor pool is great for the kids in Winter. Complimentary breakfast was good for the whole family. Perfect room with King bed in bedroom, hide-a-bed in living room for kids. Two sinks in room made it easy for everyone to get ready in the morning. Living room TV did not work- they offered to send someone to fix it. Monday the breakfast was very crowded and half of the dining hall was closed, so we had to wait several minutes for an open table.
Clean and nice. Was impressed with service and the people Nothing. They did a great job!
- Nice location near heavenly village, hotels and attractions - Horse carriage ride just outside the hotel (not affiliated to the hotel) - Very clean room. - Got excellent view of the lake and mountains. - Good room service. - Very courteous staff all around including front desk, valet, bell desk, concierge and breakfast. - Safe area around where you can walk around even late in the night. - Breakfast was excellent with good choices. - Room had a separate living room and bedroom with 2 queen beds. No fresh air fan in the bathroom. There is no parking other than Valet. So you have to pay 19 dollars along with 15 dollars resort fee. It's good they separate it so people flying don't have to pay for parking, but those who drive should have some place to park for free. Such a big hotel that it was hard to find a place to sit for breakfast in the morning. Walls were thin and you could hear noise from other rooms and outside. 15 dollar resort fee only gives 3 Mbps internet which buffered while watching online movies.
The rooms were nice. It's very much an Embassy Suite style hotel. I believe that it was at one time. So we had a bedroom and a living area with a couch, chair, tv and dining table. It was nice having a microwave and small refrigerator. The front desk staff was very nice and the valet were super nice! It was an extremely busy weekend and even after working all day non-stop in the freezing cold, they greeted us with a smile and were very friendly. I will definitely stay there again. Normally I don't post negatives but there were just two things that really bothered me. 1. We attempted to eat that the Echo restaurant in the hotel. We waited at the podium for at least 15 minutes and not one of the staff came to help us. As a matter of fact we counted at least 6 people that looked at us and just kept doing what they were doing. No "we will be right with you", no "let me get someone for you". Nothing! That was completely uncalled for. 2. When the maid came to service our room, she did not do the greatest job. No vacuuming, which the floor definitely needed, and the bathroom floor should have been cleaned too. That gave me a little bit of an uneasy feeling about cleanliness. I realize they were busy but they need to make sure that they are thorough when it comes to cleaning.
Very nice and clean beds Pool to chlorinated and cold
1. We did not get the room we ordered (we ordered dbl queen bed and got single king) 2. The toilet were flooded, it took them over 2 hours to fix and 2 phones. 3. It took them 3 phones and over 2 hours to get to us blanket for the sofa bed (We did not get then Dbl Queen) 4. The valet car retrieving our car took almost an HOUR !!, and we lost ski time.
Great sized rooms Wifi poor Kept cutting out and needed rebooting
Free hot breakfast. room felt dirty. My daughters feet were dirty on the bottom after walking on the carpet.
Hot tub, free breakfast, spacious rooms. Slow / unreliable internet, especially during busy weekends.
Great room with 2 full bathrooms. No complimentary coffee or water in the rooms.
Upgraded to an amazing suite had a wonderful dinner at Friday's steakhouse.
Poor check in service. No comps.
The room we got was excellent. Twin Queen bed and two full bathrooms. Room was excellent. No breakfast, no kettle in room, no fridge, no complemtary coffee, no free movie channels and above all, NO GREE WIFi
The hotel was very accommodating and allowed us to do a late check out and change rooms due to an unpleasant odor. The original room may have just had a family stay and there was a lingering smell of diapers. But our room was changed immediately and the hotel happily accommodated my request to be on a high floor away from the elevators. The room was clean, large and comfortable. The two bathrooms was actually a huge help in getting ready. The view from the bar on the top floor for cocktails was lovely. I think my cons have more to do with my own selection. I wish I had chosen a smaller more boutique style hotel because this one and its brother Harvey's are behemoths along the lake. If you are looking for something really romantic this probably isn't it. Every room is identical and blah design. But if you know what you're going for, it's perfectly acceptable.
The location is great. A bit run down.
Nothing Room smelled like smoke.gym was outdated.
I loved the my stay! Everything is offered right inside the hotel, staff was amazing! Casino was super fun! Dinner at the Forrest buffet was great and the hotel had tons of extras (pool, arcade, bar, etc) I would def recommend this to any family and friends wanting to visit Tahoe
The rooms were a great value, clean and comfortable. Having two full baths in one room was very nice. They accommodated our request to have each room on the same floor. The Forest Buffet - Seafood was a great value. Our room was closer to the elevator and that was a slight distraction. One family member had to call security twice for rowdy neighbors.
Location Horrible service
Staff was friendly. Rude noisy neighbors kept us both up from 2am until 430 am both nights!
My boyfriend and I stayed in a newly renovated room! It was lovely and we loved that it had two bathrooms. They asked for a $50 deposit and I've never had that at a hotel which I thought was odd.
Check in took over 5 hours, room had no AC, was given a food credit for our troubles and the staff was downright rude. I felt like we were treated like lower class citizens because we booked through KAYAK - we were at the front of this mob of people waiting to get our toom, we were there for hours longer than most but we're one of the last people to get a room. This was by far the most stressful vacation I've ever been on. Never staying in this hotel again - definitely recommending AGAINST this hotel to my friends and family. Nothing
We been wait for 4 hours to get the room and the room was not clean and the receptionist was very mean.
Hotel was ok nothing outstanding but overall good experience. Check-in seems to take forever, luckily when we arrived there were only three people in front of us but it still took 20 minutes. After we came back for dinner it was packed and it probably took over one hour at that time.
Had 12 people in front of us in line. Waited for 1.5 hours in this short line. Don't understand why ????
location is great. Hotel overall was smokey and crowded. Unfortunately we had a very loud neighbor who decided to have a late night loud party. I think being associated to the casino, probably not the best place to stay with kids.
Bed was comfortable. 45 minute wait to check in. Two $6 waters had already been opened, asked for new ones, never got them. No hair dryer, called 4 times over two days to get one, finally got one and it didn't work. Had to flip out on the phone to have them bring another one. Three of the five lights in the place were out, called to have them fixed, but no one came. Aside from a made bed and fresh towels it were as if housekeeping hadn't been there in weeks.
Covered parking lot. No indoor pool. No hot tub. No sauna. Slow elevators. Rooms were small and bathroom was very basic. Something you would expect in a Motel 6.
Covered parking Room smelled Heater/AC didn't work properly, so sleep was not great due to temp in room Staff rude and abrasive with myself at check in and with others waiting to check in and check out For the OBSCENE PRICE OF $300/night for what you get, including a $22 undisclosed Resort fee which is a joke because this is NOT a resort---blatant rip off of customer that is not included in KAYAK on line reservations, I would not stay here again.
It was a very nice experience at the Hard Rock hotel for my family and myself. Hotel personal were very helpful. Room didn't get cleaned, while our stay there.
I would stay there again!!! The Valet Was Very Friendly and the room was very cozy. Great Beds! Wonderful place to stay.
We left a blazer and it was stolen either by the next guestor the staff
Don't know. Weven were turned away 15 miles from Lake Tahoe. We never got there. Driving a rental from Sacramento to Lake Tahoe on Christmas Eve, we were turn away about 15 miles before Lake Tahoe because state Highway patrol was requiring snow chains and or all wheel drive to continue on. We called Hard Rock as well as KAYAK / Get a Room - they agreed to cancel the reservation but would not return any $240 nightly room charge. Do the right
Got reservation done through kayak. Hotel did not have reservation request till day of arrival till I reached front desk. Getaroom customer support was called multiple times but had no way to help. Finally hotel VIP service manager helped to give us the room at 7 pm. We arrived at the hotel at 4.00pm. We wasted our evening at the hotel front desk.
When we arrived they did not have our reservation in the system. They told us to have a seat for 15 mins while they manually enter the reservation. When we got to our room it had not been cleaned from the prior guests including beer that was stilllaying around. They offered to come empty the trash but could not confirm if the bedding and towels had been changed out. If you make a reservation I would call and confirm they have the reservation and have cleaned the room.
The mountain view from room was amazing
That we checked out early and went somewhere much better!!! This is a poor excuse for a hotel. They claim they've done $25 million in room renovations, but it's more like $25 dollars a room. No microwave, no refrigerator (even in suites from what the operator told me) the hotel had a generalized stench to it, I best described it as it smells like someone was crop dusting the whole time. Very overcrowded! I wouldn't suggest anyone stay here, even for a cheapened room rate we've stayed in much better in the area. AVOID!
The additional service fee for no service
I am single father , I had promised my daughter to take her to Tahoe to play in snow. over the Thanksgiving holidays. I booked a room via get a room It was a good deal,. I have been going to this hotel, since it was Cesar Tahoe, a world class place 28 years ago,.I love their swimming pool and their spa. When , my brother learned about our trip , he also booked in the same hotel. They have a 1 yr old child, they checked in to the 15th floor, In the evening , when they were trying to put the baby to sleep , their hotel room opens up and another group of guest walks in , The Montbleu had double booked their room. When we checked in, the bell person brought our luggage up to our room , I tipped him generously, but he did not even a say simple Thank u. I was in shock. I felt insulted, the bell person , the hispanic guy ,was exercising power and making a statement. following day, when i tried to pay my bill at cafe del sol, after having breakfast, the cashier treated me like a criminal , and outlaw as their computer showed our room 707 is vacant. They want to see my ID. I cried out , my luggage and belongings and ID are still in the room. after 15 minutes argument with embarrassment in front of my daughter and other guest , the Cafe manager , made it sound like as she is doing me a favor by accepting my credit card for the payment.of our breakfast. she said, i am going to this one time. I said , thank u very much After , breakfast , i went to the front desk to inquire about our room showing vacant and they may double book the room with our belongings in the room , but not a simple apology was made. The front desk who was he/she or she/he said sorry very Sarcastically. We checked out that day, making our trip short, i did not feel comfortable and did not feel safe to stay there for another night. sure , things have changed in that place. Never mind the lack of customer service or making u feel welcomed, the presence of prejudice, and employee's ignorance and attitude , lack of management and lack of security screams out. Shame on you and your employees Montbleu. I am forwarding profanity in every language to your establishment for such a horrible and ugly experience. Shame on you. It surely not a family place, It definitely a smoker's place The smell of cigarette is overwhelming. You may walk out of that casino with the lung Cancer. Staff are rude and illiterate and uncivilized with no common sense. When you are at Cafe Del Sol, there is a excessive vibration and Noise surrounding you as there is a 747 Jet is getting ready for take off. While we were there, the Swimming pool was closed. The Steam room is never hot enough ,
Requested rollaway bed and it took them 5 hours to bring a completely old, dirty and torned rollaway bed without bedding...
Casino was decent although table minimums were incredibly high for this area. I mean on the strip in Vegas it's common to see $15 tables at nicer hotels but $25 here at Montbleu is a joke especially for the level of service! Staff was incredibly rude and offered no help to guests! A member in our party paid for early check in and was told his room would not be available until 10:00PM! They said they would refund the resort fee (which let's be honest..what the hell is the resort fee really for) and his room NEVER became availble. He slept on our couch. Unacceptable! They said there were only 2 housekeepers on staff to clean rooms and that they were going as fast as they can. No managers were available to speak to for 2 1/2 days (they told us they had too much OT so no one was here except the hotel manager, which ignored all guests requests to speak to him.) Unfortunately we were not alone...there were at least 25 other parties in the same situation as us!
Newly renovated rooms are spacious, high-end vibe, and don't smell like smoke (as a non-smoker,that's always a concern of mine staying at a casino)! This is a great spot for a weekend of skiiing at Heavenly: walking distance to the gondola,a fantastic hot tub, and even a Starbucks inside for a cheap breakfast! Very affordable if you're sharing the room with friends. Customer service was slightly lacking...the front desk often didn't pick up when we called and check-in was a bit hectic. It felt like they couldn't handle large surges of people checking in along with people getting coats from coat check. In that respect it felt like they were prioritizing the casino over the hotel...
The overall experience was good. Housekeeping wasn't the best.
I stayed here with my 7 yr old son during a sledding trip. Basically, I chose this place for the pool, and that part of our stay was good. Our room was nice enough too. What I still cannot get over was the stank of the casino, which was really fowl and dominated all of the public areas of the hotel, except for the pool area. A lesser peeve was the lingerie shop, which was super tacky & bizarre, with mannequins all sexed up in the windows. Not a family friendly feature. And just ewww. Maybe my bad for expecting otherwise from a casino. I won't be returning.
Nice manager and Diego at the front desk. Cafe Del Sol breakfasts were great. Very, very dirty. Rooms were dirty. Nobody to clean them. Many public bathrooms dirty, no toilet paper. Some front desk staff were rude. Not good customer service. Poor communication. No manager on staff until after noon. A lot of angry customers complaining about the no maid service and dirty rooms. Stained sheets and pillow cases.
1. There was no hot water in the morning when outside temperature is -8 C and they couldnt seem to care about it.
All was perfect Except the restaurant
Location was great, perfect for the lake. Jimmy's restaurant was very nice and the wait staff were great! We booked a pet friendly room for our dog, we were told we could only stay on the ground floor next to the lake car park. It was very noisy and the nightly cost did not match my experience. I am a seasoned traveler and this was not good value for money.
The staffs are the best and helpful. The restaurant closes early 9.30pm and no other food or drink service late hours.
Staff is excellently trained. Very professional. Rooms are big and comfortable. Restaurant is nothing short of excellent. it is worth staying at the hotel just for the restaurant.
The staff, decor and small, thoughtful touches were great. I thought the restaurant, Jimmys, was overpriced for the quality of the food. Menu did nothing for us.
My wife and I were greeted by the valet/concierge gentlemen right away and were offered a glass of cold champagne! Set the standard for the rest of the stay and they didn't disappoint! Love this place and see ourselves coming here for many years to come! Didn't like that my sister in law's room was in a totally different building than ours, but understandable given the layout and they were completely booked that weekend. Also couldn't believe her room was much larger and nicer than our premium lake view king, given our room was $80 more per night. But the view made up for it. After all, it was only for one night.
Restaurant was excellent - both for lunch and dinner. Sommelier was very knowledgeable and approachable. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Got great restaurant recommendations from one of the valets. Room was very nicely appointed, comfortable and attractive. Radiant floor heat in the bathroom was a nice touch. Free on-site parking with valet service. Great location - not in the thick of things, so quiet, but easy access to South Lake and the rest of the Lake. Nothing.
The service was amazing and staff were very accommodating. Our room was beautiful and the spa was glorious The reading couch in the room was not super comfy but it was a pull out so no biggie
The room was clean and had everything we needed while staying in Tahoe. Staff was friendly too.
Short walk to Heavenly's gondola and the folks are friendly. However, the maintenance is lacking and the buildings/amenities are dated. Breakfast is fruit, donut, and coffee; wifi is minimally useful. Hot tub was nice after a day on the slopes. Good for the price.
My SIL were so impressed with this place. We thought for the cheap price we were going to be staying in something gross and run down but this was quite opposite. The rooms are nice and clean, the staff is amazing, and we had no idea how close they were to down town and the lake. We walked to both places with small children. We would definitely stay her again. Had a wonderful time.
Proximity to center hub of food, grocery and walking distance to lake and pet friendly. New upgrades inside and out ensure I will continue to stay here for my yearly visit. Nothing.
The location is just 5-min walk from the Heavenly Gondola. Price is good. Breakfast was ok. Donuts, coffee, tea, banana, and apple. *the apple was just a little bit sour. Internet was ok. I was disappointed by the room service. On the day when I went to Heavenly gondola, the maid didn't clean my room. I was frustrated at that time since I expected to have a clean room after having tiring activities on top. Microwave is too small. Can't warm food with a big box.
We've stayed here a few times and it's always great! The location is perfect. It's walking distance to the gondola for heavenly, stores, food, movie theater etc. the staff is friendly. The rooms are clean and gave a fridge and microwave. The beds are comfortable and there is wifi. Can't beat the price! The hot tub wasn't hot enough.
1. Curteous and helpful front desk lady. 2. Tasrefly furnished. 3. Everything was working. Please pay attention to actual comfort not just looks of the unit. 1. Very loud heater - it was louder than gale force wind. 2. Untouchably very rough duvet cover and rough sheets. Thought about sleeping on the leather sofa. 3. Shower curtain and 2 pillows had unpleasant smell. 3. Pillows and cushiins were too heavy and bulky.
Right by everything. Room was clean and staff was friendly. We'd defiantly go back!
pet friendly, rooms and linens are clean and great location very high price for very cheap quality
Hotel locality is great, easily accessible to most of the market places. Staffs are helpful in providing tourist spots information.. Break fast would have been better with little extra options and cafeteria area was too small to accommodate guest from different rooms
First time in Tahoe, Went with the cheapest place my guy and i could find, But turns out: great value for location. We walked to the beach and to the shops/lifts and casinos. Staff was very friendly. Had both a regular king and also a suite with fireplace and jacuzzi (also for a good deal). Unless you're just super picky about not having somewhat dated decor or your breakfast, I wouldn't stay anywhere else for a higher price. What you read about the basic breakfast is true, but the rooms come with a fridge. To improve: Getting a toaster for some bagels/breads would be nice to carb up for a day on the slopes.
Clean rooms and location The breakfast, no channels on tv
The hot water for shower is not regular, it was switching between very cold to very hot at certain interval. Breakfast variety can be improved, instead of just unhealthy donuts.
The staff was excellent..the rooms have been upgraded. I have stay at this resrt in the past The cont. breakfast was a bit meager
I didn't see any pet's fee charge in either this website nor their website! It should be clearly post how much would they charge during the reservation, it's not very pleasant to find out I need to pay extra for my staying! And the bathroom drain was not working well.
Staff friendly and close to attractions Rooms needed updating and no ac and it was warm
It was nice that the staff let us check in early. location was good, it is close to the beach, have swimming pool. bathroom was too small, table was also small only enough for 2 chairs 1 of the chair was so dirty that we were afraid to sit on it. knob for the shower was loose. maid didnt clean the coffee cups or coffee maker. towel for the swimming pool was too small. some of the donuts was so hard ( probablly left over from previous day). it's hard to find plug for your cells or laptop. we have to push the bed away from the wall to use it. clock not working propertly, keep blinking 12:00.
The bed's were really hard.
The beautiful location. The room was very comfotable for the price we paid. Very limited choice at breakfast.
Ideal Location for skiing and casino's
Great location, great price. A/C did not work.
I liked that this hotel was near to everything we were at, walking distance. I liked that this hotel was clean from the time I walked in the front lobby.
Liked the decor and ambiance as well as the proxcimity to Heavenly. The staff were pleasant and helpful.
The hotel was very nice and well taken care of. Issues were handled immediately! I would highly recommend this hotel! It was peaceful when I was there - which was what I was looking for. Staff didn't mention you needed a pass for the beach - and I didn't find out till I walked there and had to turn around to get the pass.
Big room, nice design, huge bed! Room on street front, little bit noisy. No coffee maker in room.
Hotel decoration and cleanness pleasantly surprised me. Bed was comfortable. Pity didn't have time to check out the sauna and spa nothing to complain about really, but looks like it had no AC, just fans. Probably not needed due to mountain climate specifics, I was comfortable enough. Also has no in-house breakfast other than coffee
Very helpful staff, unusual design & build, eco-construction, central location for exploring area, Spa Facilties, great for both Summer & Winter stays. No.
I was surprised how well the room is kept clean and smells clean. I did not like the little ironing board, was a pain to iron clothes.
Good location, Clean room. I had two bad points. One was I reserved 2 Queen beds room, but, they served us only 1 Queen bed room. I stayed with my wife and 2 daughters. They served extra blanket. Unfortunately, my poor daughter had to sleep on the floor... I don't know what problem was happen between booking.com and this hotel. Another bad point was very poor information about the hotel. There was some SPA and Pool, but I couldn't find any information about it in my room.
Location, free WiFi in room. Nice big clean room. Location is excellent. Walk to casinos and good retaurants and shopping. No fitness center.
Great clean room, nice staff. Had a free drink upon checking in. Location is very close to Casinos and Heavenly ski resort. Beware though, very few restaurant choice around here. Nothing to do with hotel, but there are only about 4 plus the casinos within walking distance. Small elevator, but everything else was great!
Interent signal was very poor.
Proximity to casinos and Heavenly Valley 11 a.m. checkout
The motel was within walking distance to the casinos. A free continental breakfast was provided. There wasn't enough parking spaces available. The bed mattress appeared old and sagging. The air conditioner was too loud when turned on.
easy to find; good location to wedding on golf course we went to; room was adequate size with good parking. staff very responsive to our needs for an iron and to contact others who were staying at same hotel. location was quiet with minimal traffic, yet we were able to access restaurents, golf, and casinos within a short distance. no newspapers; no remote for the television; no iron in room
Friendly personell, good location, free breakfast no tea/coffee facilities
We only stayed one night. The carpet was dirty, the first tv didn't work. The bed had sagging spots in the mattress and you couldn't open the bathroom door all the way to get into the bathroom. No coffee machine or any other amenity in the room. Only downstairs. Continental breakfast only offered bagels and toast. No fruit,oatmeal, cereal, no juice.
The reception was very abrupt.The inclusive continental breakfast was poor with some cutlery not available!
Quiet location small parking lot
It is strategically located and close to shopping, ski, parks, golf courses, factory outlets, casino, gas stations, snowmobilling, restaurants, gift shops and Lake Tahoe. Laundry is free. We had an upgrade with a dedicated spa to our unit. The flush was not working and I had to fix it myself because it was late at night to ask for assistance. The TV in the living area was also not working but didn't bother to call coz we were out most of the time. Should fix them before any guests check in.
The owners are so welcoming and always remember us! It is has a nice home like feeling. It is a short walk to the casinos and in summer there is a private beach, which is also a short walk/drive. Each cabin comes with table,chairs, queen bed, tv, mini electric fireplace And heat. It just a overall relaxing great place to stay it.
Very clean, friendly staff and you can't beat the location. Also dog friendly.
The staff was very friendly and it is located just down the road from the lake. Me and family had a great time staying there. My only real complaint is that the pool was hot. It needs to be cooled down. It should not feel like I am getting into a hot tub. Plus it could use a cleaning.
The only thing convenient was that it was close to Harrah's 1. The pool was empty. My kids were looking forward to a vacation with swimming and the description said it had a heated pool but the pool was empty. 2. The room was extremely hot and the fan did not work. We had to open the window that was nailed shut, so my husband had to remove the nail to open the window otherwise we were in a room that was constantly 90 degrees. 3. Two doors down from us was a group of drug dealers who live there at the lodge and they tried to sell my husband drugs.
The place is literally a block away from california nevada stateline. Very accessible to heavenly ski resort which is very nice place to go. Since its at the border of california and nevada, you can walk couple of blocks and you'll be at nevada side, which means, you can gamble. The room needs renovation. Not bad for the value but definitely could be better. There are few lodges/motels/hotels that surrounds the place itself and therefore i think makes the owner dont bother to renovate the place. Since the lodge is very close to thr lake and a block away from nevada, it is very convinient and stay from.
