Friendly staff, nice location

Posted Feb 26, 2016
Friendly service and the rooms have a pine/mountain feel and the jet tub was awesome! Kind of a funky setup with placement of the tub/shower, but overall was pleased with our room and very convenient location close to Heavenly, gondola, lake and casinos. Also a plus that this place is pet friendly. Downside: limited parking

Charliegirl The Trailhead was built in 1946, and out of 36 rooms we have 32 different lay-outs. Yes, some of them are a little funky, and unique. We are glad you enjoyed your overall stay, and look forward to seeing you again, at the Trailhead.

I loved the room! It was clean and cute. We got a free upgrade to a king size bed. It was a great location, just a couple of blocks from the casinos and ski resort.

I expected a bit more for $$ paid. Staff is Ok, but rooms are old - although everything was working there. For some reason, breakfast starts only at 8am, if you need to leave earlier, you are out of luck.

Great location for the right price

Posted Feb 16, 2016 on Hotels
I was looking for an inexpensive but comfy place to stay within walking distance of the Heavenly Gondola, and TrailHead fit the bill. The rooms were older, but very clean and well maintained. It was an easy walk to the Gondola for skiing and to several good restaurants in the evening when we were hungry. Overall it fit our needs for the right price and I would stay there again on another ski trip.

Katherine I am so happy you not only enjoyed your stay at The Trailhead, but also took advantage of how close we are to so much. Don't just limit your Tahoe visits to winter, there are many great things to do here year round. We hope to see you back soon.

Quaint hotel right off 50

Posted Feb 14, 2016
Pros: Convenient location
Cons: Sheets and towels could have been cleaner
Decent little motel off of highway 50. Small bathroom but comfortable room with microwave, fridge. Connecting doors to the next room let in a lot of sound in the middle of the night.

We are happy to hear you liked our little hotel. If, for any reason, another guest is disturbing you, please don't hesitate to contact Front Desk so we may be able to resolve the issue. We have gone over this review with our housekeeping staff regarding the sheets and towels so this won't happen again. We hope you decide to stay with us again!

Fair price, good accomadations

Posted Aug 10, 2014
The staff was welcoming, the room looked newly renovated and had a good A/C system. We forgot to turn it off before leaving and came back to a freezing room, which was perfect for beating the August heat! Conveniently located to the casinos and Heavenly. It was a less than 10 dollar cab ride to get to Harvey's.

Tahoe

Posted Aug 5, 2014
The bed and living area was clean, the bathroom looked like it had been recently painted with sink and toilet. The floor was dirty with nasty dirty black grout. Wasn't swept and need a good scrubbing and mop. The shower looked clean but it was very enclosed and dark with no light. The shower head was rusty and looked dirty. It barely sprayed out water and I didn't want to touch it to try and adjust it. The rest of the room was very nice, clean and updated. But looks like the maid skipped the bathroom and couple of times.

A nice room at a fair price

Posted Aug 2, 2014
Hotel staff was very friendly and we enjoyed our room. The hotel room has a rustic feel to it and we found it clean and neat. The hotel was located within walking distance of the major casinos on the Nevada side and we passed numerous small shops along the way
