Rooms are clean, staff is friendly and helpful, and the breakfast is fantastic. Great sled,riding hill for the kids and the ski slope is small, but excellent for beginners. The ski slope is also a fantastic benefit at Granlibakken for when the roads make traveling to the larger slopes impossible. Just a short walk to the ski slope and sled...

We visited Granlibakken in July 2016. We were visiting the area to run our Jeep on the Rubicon trail. The hotel is well kept but you can tell that it has some years in it.

I felt that they are at the top or above their class while maintaining budget prices. Buildings are spread out in smaller units and offer quiet rooms, tucked in the forest.

The Granlibakken is slightly out of the centre of Tahoe City, which means you can't really walk to anywhere from it - well you can but it's a WALK rather than a stroll. That being said the room was perfectly nice; there was a free breakfast which was OK. It strikes me as a bit more of a summer location...
