Pictures were deceiving, everything was basically “cleaned” to hide everything that was dirty. You can see the foot prints on the door on the inside. The door knobs on the cabinets were just there for looks since they fall of the moment you touch them. If you look out the window on the left you see all box’s such as beer cases and other random boxes. There were stains on the bed sheets and uncovering the sheets there was so much hair, really makes you wonder if they just swapped the bed liner. It’s basically abandoned. We went to “check in” when no one was even there with our names and information with the room card just sitting in the lobby.

One of the worst locations to stay in South Lake Tahoe. It is nothing like what it shows on Expedia.com . Also, it said breakfast and dinner buffet included in Family Suite booking .. there is nothing like that .. they say its continental breakfast but all they give is granola bars and cheap coffee. I would never recommend this place to anyone ever. Family suites are not suites, they are cabin with dirty smell, dirty floors, broken heaters, dirty bedding and everything dirty ... I would not even give this place a 1 star .. if there is anything less than that, I would give that to them .. its pathetic.
