Great family place! Great sledding! Great pool!

Posted Jan 4, 2017
Pros: Sledding. Pool. Sauna. NYE party.
Cons: Some staff seemed kind of depressed.
Location: Awesome location.
We stayed over New Years and they had a great party for the family. The sledding was amazing. Max, at the front desk, was incredible. He even lent our son his son's gloves, because we lost ours. Max was really great with all of our needs.

We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed the amenities and the NYE party here at Granlibakken Tahoe! Our holiday parties are included in all lodging reservations, and sledding and skiing tickets at our ski and sled hill are half-priced for lodging guests. I will pass your praise on to Max, we always like to hear when an employee goes above and beyond for a guest. We hope that you will visit again soon!

Granlibakken resort

Posted Dec 28, 2016
Ok so you this place is nice on the outside. When you get to the rooms you would expect top notch rooms for the amount of money charged per night. First day, the bathroom wasn't flushing. We called the front desk around 4pm and we went to grab a bite and look around town... we came back at 8:45 and nothing was done... we called again, and waited, then we get a call at 10pm asking us if maintenance ever came up to fix it... and they didn't! We couldn't use the bathroom for a day and a half but we were charged like if we were in a 5 star hotel...

Great Experience

Posted Dec 21, 2016
I've been staying here with my family since I was a kid and Granlibakken never disappoints! They have a little something for everyone, from the delicious breakfast buffet to the perfect sledding hill to their luxurious spa and hot tub. Highly recommended!

Exceeded Expectations

Posted Oct 11, 2016
The hotel was great and in an excellent location. Beautiful property but it is a tad out-dated. They offered an early risers breakfast for those of use needing to leave early for a local event; as an active racer this is something that can help kick off our day on the right foot. The regular breakfast buffet was impressive as well.

Great location, small room

Posted Oct 10, 2016
The hotel grounds were very nice, breakfast was great. The room was small, but clean. The door to the room was a little un secure, felt like you could slide a credit card thru the gap between the door frame and open it up.

Thank you for your review of your stay. We will look into the doors to our room and ensure that all of them are fit into their frame correctly so that they are secure for our guests. Our breakfast buffet is included in all stays, which is a great value. We also offer a great location, just a short distance from Lake Tahoe and some of Tahoe's premier attractions. We hope that you visit again soon!

Cabin-like feel with the comfort of a hotel

Posted Oct 4, 2016
My team and I rented this place for our stay for the Spartan World Championship weekend in Squaw Valley. We just needed a place to stay, but didn't realize that in addition to the breakfast buffet, there is also an in-unit, fully furnished kitchen! There is a coffee machine, toaster, full-sized oven/stove, dishwasher, utensils and dishware; you name it! My team and I went to the Save Mart grocery store close by and bought all the ingredients we needed to make dinner. We loved our stay; and would definitely consider staying here again. The couch was a pullout sofa bed--which was nice because we had four people staying in a 2-bed unit. No complaints here!
