We stayed at the Gondola Lodge at Lake Tahoe during the 4th of July holiday and we are very happy with the service and the property. The property manager, John, was very nice. We have a large group with young children. After a long drive, everyone is exhausted. John gave us the permission to check in the property a few hours before the regular check-in time. He also honored us the beach passes. The group had a wonderful time at the beach. John checking with us on a daily basis to make sure we have we need during the stay. All in all, we are very happy with this lodging choice and will book with them again should we come back to the area in the future.

Room was dirty and rundown. Very small, too. Room wasn't easy to stay in. For this hotel it's all about location!! Staff was very responsive.

This is a nice property with gated entrance and is quiet and serene. We loved the privacy, pool was cool and refreshing, and the beds were so comfortable we didn’t want to get up. We will absolutely stay here again!!!
