I liked the fact that there weren't extra resort fees, parking was free, wi-fi was included, the rooms were large and the kitchen had everything needed for a convenient stay. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. There was a lot of room. We brought four bikes with new tires and stored them inside, used them right before leaving and put them on the car rack so we would not get the room dirty. The hotel is a 3-5 minute easy walk from Raley's Supermarket and Heavenly Village. There are plenty of places to eat nearby. It was very convenient for families. It also made it easy being on Pioneer Trail Street because the traffic is heavy on CA 50 and near Heavenly Village. If you like to be away from the crowd but still close enough to go visit it on your terms, this place is ideal.
The downside to it for us were:
1. The office is closed 8 pm to 8 am. We arrived after 9 pm and luckily had called the office to let them know we were coning in late. They gave us the lock combo for the late arrivals where keys are kept. I wonder what I would have done if we had not called???!
2. There is no safe at all, not in the room, not in the office. I was given a key to the ski lockers but those were so flimsy. Come on guys, add a safe for electronics, it's 2021.
3. We were on the bottom floor and the tenants above us were walking around until midnight. Each step was audible and the thump thump was really annoyingly loud.
