Amazing location with the beach right at your footstep and nice places to eat around as well. Lots of activities around the place or just playing in the snow in the beach is fun too! Would definitely like to visit the place in the summer and experience the water activities at the lake.

After a long drive up the pass, it was so nice to greeted by a friendly face and to cozy up to a comfortable room with a fireplace. It was just the standard room (partial lake view, 2 beds). but completely lived up to our expectations. Weather was bad (rain) the on-site washer driers were helpful.

This is a great location no matter what the time of year. We were here in January for a weekend at Heavenly and this place is close to Ski Run Blvd (but if you're a summer person, this is right on the Tahoe beach). The staff was friendly, the room spacious, clean and comfortable. I particularly like that soap, body...

Moderately OK room with pleasing fireplace. However hotel lacks public areas of comfort therefore you have to stay in your room , maybe this is better in summer when you can sit outside. Maybe resort fee charged is justified in summer as well whereas in winter just feels like a way to make you pay.more for your room. Worst of...

My husband and I stayed her Jan 2 till the 5th. We so loved the beautiful setting near the lake and had a partial view from our room. We stayed in D211 and felt it was a good room for the price we paid. The room had both a fireplace, small fridge and a coffee maker. There were no microwave...

We decided to take an overnight trip to South Lake Tahoe and found a great lakeside room here! It was my husband's first time visiting Lake Tahoe and the accommodations were perfect and impressive. The room was cozy and very nicely decorated with a fireplace which made it that much more special. Really made it hard to leave the room!...

Over the Xmas break, I visited Tahoe for skiing on two different occasions and stayed at the Beach Retreat both times. Two different rooms, both with amazing views of the lake. The in-room fireplace in both rooms really transformed a beach oriented property into a cozy winter retreat. Dee at the bar was gracious enough hang around while I finished...

“I'm not sure if all the rooms have fireplaces, but after a long day on the slopes, it was a great way to dry out our boots and equipment. The patio in the lake view room was a nice touch, had my coffee out there each morning”
