This was our first time here. We were able to checkin a little early. The rooms were clean and ready to go. We were visiting from FL and re-living our family's roots and history.

My husband and I were visiting his grandmother for her 85th birthday in Pioneer. His grandmother booked all the grandkids rooms at the Pioneer Resort. Everything went very smoothly. The rooms were ready early for those arriving early and those arriving late were accommodated as well. The rooms were pleasant and clean. We had a king bed and vaulted ceilings... More

We had a very nice, clean room. We were on the top floor and it had a vaulted ceiling which made the room feel very large and comfy. The check in hours are a little late and when we went the person who does check in is also the housekeeper, so we had to go out and find her!

We LIVE here, and didn't realize how lovely this lodge is. Had family come from Texas to stay. The pool area is beautiful, the rooms are spacious and clean with microwaves and fridges. The staff were ALL friendly, and it was VERY affordable. The location is perfect-between San Joaquin County and Lake Tahoe and other attractions as well.

We stopped in here while on The Great American Walkabout. The rooms were spacious and had high ceilings, which made us feel much more comfortable. It is tucked away right off Highway 88, and is a short drive from Jackson, Ca or Lake Tahoe. Its a great place to stay when visiting Tahoe as it is quieter and more affordable.... More

Yes, the pool is still out. Judging by reviews it's been out almost a year. From what I've learned, it was a simple fix of just draining the pool, cleaning it, and fixing a filter, but the owner (who is never on site) was very lax about getting it done, and the wonderful manager Heather, couldn't do anything without the...
