3rd floor of abandoned buildingPosted Nov 14, 2013
The room was nice and comfortable, but they put us on the third floor of a massive building that had no other guests, and no elevator. So we dragged bags to the 3rd floor and saw no other people at all. Why the 3rd floor, with no one else there? The hotel desk just did not seem to care much about us as we checked in and asked a few questions. We felt pushed along. We would not go back.

the surrounding views are outstandingPosted Aug 21, 2013 on Hotels.com
This is a fantastic location, second to none, for all seasons. I can highly recommend it. However not the best location for meals during the summer period. Very close for entry to the high sierra, hiking , fishing and skiing

Not even as good as a Motel 6Posted Aug 6, 2013
Pros: The bed was comfortable.
Cons: See list above.
Location: Skiing in the winter and hiking and biking in the summer.
Myself and a friend stayed here for 3 nights in July 2013. The room was on the third floor and we had to walk up another set of steps to get to the first floor so really it was on the fourth floor. This can be a chore at 8,000 feet. There is no elevator in the building. Since it is a ski resort in the mountains we were hoping for a nice view from the window. All we could see was a parking lot and the wall of the building next door. The room was not air conditioned and did not even have a fan. This was OK at night but it got hot in the room during the day. There was one big reclining chair bolted to the floor three feet from the TV. There were no other chairs or even a table. The only electrical outlets that were not covered by furniture were in the bathroom so that is where we had to recharge out electronics. The bed was four feet off the floor with a storage cabinet built in below that created a toe injury hazard. There was no hair dryer or full length mirror and only three hangers in the closet. We had Wi-Fi for the first two days but it was turned off on the third day. The TV worked but there was no guide to show what stations corresponded to the numbered channels. For what we paid for this room we expected a lot more for our money.

Nothing to do in early summer. Mountain biking closed until July and sky line booked. The only thing to do unless you want to relax and do nothing. The bar and grill closed had to drive out of kirkwood to eat. We drove into to tahoe for everything except to stay the night and that was only because it was already paid for. Winter is probably much better time to spend in Kirkwwod.

Kirkwood resort was pretty much closed. Being so isoldated , we had hoped that the resort would provide amenities beyond the rental but given the summer and slow time for kirkwood, restaurant, hottub,etc were closed. In addition, we thought we rented a hotel room with Queen bed but were given someone's condo with very uncomfortable murphy bed and remaining furniture did not meet 3* standard. overall, our stay at this particular condo was very uncomfortable, furnishing was poor and resort amenities were closed. I woudl not recommend this place for summer stay if your hope is to be closer to Tahoe.

Okay if don't find anything in Tahoe cityPosted Jul 23, 2013 on Hotels.com
Hotel location is too far away from South lake tahoe. There is nothing to eat closeby.If you are going in summer, you might want to skip this hotel. Otherwise, during winter season you will like this place.

Room in KirkwoodPosted Jul 9, 2013 on Hotels.com
Exceeded my expectations because the condo was nice and clean. No front desk or personel. I am not even sure if I checked out correctly as they haven't returned my phone call. My only gripe is that there's no AC so it can get stuffy with the windows closed.

Not too satisfiedPosted Jun 14, 2013 on Hotels.com
Hotel.com com told us our room was in Meadowside. It was Sun Meadows. When we arrived, the lodge front desk was closed. We just happened to speak to a nice young woman that gave us wrong information again as to where we were supposed to go. It took us almost an hour to figure out where this condo was. The room was listed as 1304 but really, it should have read 1-304A. There was no elevator and we had a lot of things to bring to the room. It was 4.5 flights of stairs. When we finally figured this out, the refrigerator was not on. We wanted to stay in the mountains to get away from the heat but even with the window open, and it being very cool out side, the room remained very hot and we didn't sleep well at all. When we went to check out, we had to add another $13 to the total. The hotel was listed for after taxes it went to $ then they added an additional $13. Not a great experience. The room was nice, the bed comfortable but very hot!! really disappointed in the experience. The view was of Sun Meadows 2 with the red roof. You could see the cliffs but you had to really lean over to do so. They should NOT have said they views were nice. We easily saw into other guests rooms. Kinda weird....

So close you could almost touch the lifts.Posted Apr 24, 2013 on Hotels.com
Last ski weekend of the season. Pros: So close to everything, with young children a real plus as they don't have to walk far. Great size room. Cons beds very soft, lots of maintenance noise from ski machines until almost midnight.
