Super friendly staff. a fantastic hotel. Decide to splurge and get the beachfront view. Well worth it. The breakfast was minimal but adequate with croissants and coffee. Very friendly staff An easy to check in. Probably the only complaint, although a very minimal one, is there a portable ACs in the room were very loud, even though they were one of the few hotels that did offer air conditioning. Definitely in the surrounding restaurants were much fewer in terms of options as compared to nearby incline Village, but definitely a very enjoyable quaint town.

So the coolest thing other than being on the lake is the lending of paddleboards. Rentals cost 50 per an hour next door and hotel guests get to borrow we borrowed 3 really high quality boards with lifevests for free. Literally the cost of the room would be simply renting three boards for an hour

To start, will I come back to the Crown and recommend it to family? Absolutely yes. Are there some things they can work on? Also yes. First, the we had was great. VERY clean, had almost everything we needed in the little kitchenette and a beautiful balcony overlooking the lake. The one downside was there was no coffee maker or coffee available. In peak season they offer coffee in the rec area but on our trip there was none available and none in the room. There was tea available and a hot water maker. They could easily provide instant coffee in the room if they aren’t going to offer it in the rec area. Luckily there is coffee places next door to purchase coffee. Outside of the room, the facility has a lot of amenities such as outdoor fireplaces, a pool, spa, bbqs, and lawn games. Overall very well equipped. There were 2 disappointing things we noticed however that can be easily fixed. It seems that although there are groundskeepers/staff around they don’t thouroughly check the common areas regularly. On our second night there was apparently some incident near the lawn area where someone threw up and spilled a drink. There was also some trash left. None of this was cleaned up that day or the next 2 days. It could have been easily hosed down, but instead was left there. The second thing was that the outdoor fireplaces ran out of propane leaving only one usable. Again, both of these can be easily fixed with a little attention paid and I hope this feedback is taken seriously by management because this hotel is great and we did enjoy our stay overall.

Came here during off season and was pleasantly surprised! Gabriel in the office greeted me with a warm welcome and he was so pleasant and hospitable. Since it was such a slow part of the season, he took the liberty of upgrading me to a lake view room without me having to ask which I greatly appreciated. The room was lovely with gorgeous lake views-all glass doors, floor to ceiling. The room was cozy and modern and the bed super comfy. The reception has a cute section with locally made gifts. The hotel is literally right on the lake and beach where you can stroll for a long ways. I can’t wait to come back here and visit in the summer. I felt so welcomed and cared for from the moment I walked in the door. Highly recommend a stay here!

This is one of North Lake Tahoe's hidden gems! Not only are the views unmatched, the staff is incredibly sweet (Gabriel is amazing!) and the rooms are clean, cozy and comfortable. The complimentary breakfast + coffee + tea was a very pleasant surprise -- especially the amazing fresh home-made croissants. Our kids had so much fun playing on the beach and in the game room where there were so many things to do. We can't wait to come back in the summer!

Perfect location on the lake! Central to all of North Tahoe.

Steps to the beach, lounge chairs on the sand, rentals right there.

Pool and hot tub with a view.

Play area with fire pits and seating.

Clean rooms and the Jr. Suite was perfect for the kids to sleep in the small extra room (although keep in mind the room is not totally closed off, it's a barn door, so don't expect complete privacy). Small kitchenette was convenient for some minor cooking (and they have BBQs outside).

Clean, updated, comfy.

Pastries, oatmeal and hot beverages in the am were nice.

Only issue we had was one of the weekend nights there was a loud group hanging out in the common area and that kept us up past 10pm. We notified the staff and they said they would handle but the party continued until 11:30pm or so. Motel offered a discount on our next stay. Everything else was so great we will definitely come back!

Still a great place. It was unfortunate the hot tub and pool were closed because of COVID-19. We hope next year it will be open again. We always try to get the same room. It would be nice if the outlets had USB also for our cell phone and handles in the shower for assistance in getting in and out for us older adults would be great.

The staff are rude and couldn’t care less about any concerns. My car got hit in the parking lot, other guests witnessed it, but the hotel staff provided zero assistance. We were not at the hotel when it, we were having a dinner at a restaurant near by. According to witnesses the lady who hit me went to talk to front desk staff, but did not want to help me later. Lady at the front desk even locked the door and left when I was asking her about that, she got very agitated. On top of all that, rooms are extremely small, they don’t clean them and have no air conditioning. Breakfast is just croissants, coffee and tea.

We are so sorry to hear that your expectations were not met during your stay. We are investigating the incident with your car and will reach out to you directly to resolve the issue. Please accept our sincere apologies for the treatment you received during this frustrating experience. We hope to work together to make this right. Our motel was designed in the mid-1950s like many in the Tahoe area. This leads to smaller sized rooms and rooms and rooms that were built without AC installation. We have been investing over time to install AC units and have made good progress, but have not been able to fit every room with a unit at this point. We do have several portable units available upon request to help keep guests comfortable. Our cleaning policy since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic has been to clean/sanitize rooms prior to guest arrival. Guests are then able to request mid-stay cleanings as they deem necessary throughout their stay by scheduling a cleaning with the Front Desk staff. Hopefully this policy was clearly communicated on the brochure received at check-in. Our grab and go breakfast of freshly baked in-house croissants, oatmeal, coffee, tea & hot chocolate is available to all of our guests from 8-10am. For those who are looking for something a little more full, we are fortunate to be an easy walking distance from several restaurants and cafes. I do hope that we are able to connect further about the issues you encountered during your stay. We hope to resolve them to your satisfaction. We hope that you will give us another chance in the future to earn back your trust and give you the 5-star experience you expected when you booked at The Crown.

When booking our room, I mentioned that it was our honeymoon, and they immediately upgraded our room as a courtesy. When we arrived, we were given a complimentary bottle of wine and given a tour of the grounds and all of the features included. They have a game area and lounge, ping pong tables, and propane fire pits so you don't have to buy firewood. The weather was terrible for the first couple days, however, our view was amazing from our room, so we opened the blinds and window and turned on the fireplace and enjoyed our complimentary bottle of wine. We give this place and the staff 5/5 stars!!! We will be back for sure thanks, Brandon and Shauna Moore

How far from the Reno/Tahoe airport is it and do you offer shuttle service ?
Answer from ferrari8200
Reno airport is 43 miles from Kings Beach, quickest way would be through Higway 80, there is no need to go around the lake to get to us. We do not have a shuttle service. If you choose not to rent a car call the North Lake Tahoe Express they will get you up here but you have to book your ticket with them.
