Historical Traveler Reviews Tahoe Seasons Resort South Lake Tahoe
Aside from the location, which is great, this hotel is a disaster. The room feels as though you are staying in an RV!!! Yuck! This hotel is in desperate need of remodelling. All of the decor/furniture/bedding looks as though it has been in the hotel since 1970. I did not want to sit anywhere. For the price, they really need to upgrade.
I asked the concierge for some help with the area activities and to locate our location on the map that they gave me and she looked at me blankly and told me that she was new and could not help me. Why would they hire a concierge that had no knowledge of the area and not even give her any training?!?!?
I did not enjoy my stay and would never recommend this hotel to anyone. One of the reasons I chose this hotel was because of location, but most hotels are very close to the slopes and it is well worth the time spent on a shuttle to stay somewhere less scary.
Great Location - Fab Hotel
Stayed here on the 27 December 04 for two nights. Arrived late in Tahoe with heavy snow, tired from the long journey from San Francisco.
On arrival car was taken without ease and check in was much the same. Room was great very big and clean (for 3, would also be great for 4). Large lounge area with sofa bed and TV, big bathroom area with the jacuzzi spa in the middle and screen shutters all the way round. Then down the step into the room at the back with little kitchenette, dining booth and then the queen bed another TV and the fire. The fire was great for when you had come off the slopes.
The hotel is in a great location - you can walk across to the heavenly ski lifts and the hotel also have a great ski shop and getting kitted out was simple. Staff all very helpful.
Great hotel would stay here again if skiing, not far to the lake (5mins in car) but you may want to stay closer in summer.
A comfortable relaxing place to stay
We just returned from the Tahoe Seasons and we were very satisfied. You do have to drive to the lake (3 minutes) for the closest one. We found Sand cove and Lester Beach the best for kids. There were further. The room was great, with a living room and folding Japanese style doors, with a LARGE jaccuzzi tub in the bath area. There is a table and bed with fireplace in the bedroom area. There is a mini fridge and microwave and dry sink. There are mirrors everywhere, including in the toilet compartment !! I didnt care for that. A small pool and spa. A video game room and pool table., Up on the roof is a tennis court and shuffleboard area. 24 hr valet parking. A fantastic pizza place just at the bottom of hill "Goodfellas" and they deliver there Free. All in all a fine place to stay. A $1.00 shuttle to the casinos. All non smoking.
I must say I was a little skeptical after reading the reviews...
However, once we arrived I was extremely impressed! A great place to stay - The Staff was TOP KNOTCH! always there, and ready and willing to help. The units are not small - they are designed to take advantage of every square inch available. There were four of us in a one Bedroom and we were NOT crowded. This resort is at the foot of the Heavenly California Lodge - ~10 minutes from the Casinos. We will return!
Nice and Heavenly
Nice cabin-type room with the Heavenly mountains at your doorstep. The ambiance was definitely for people who like playing in the snow.
Totally worth the trip!
Was such a disappointment.. the room was so small.. and having to climb into a jacuzzi to take a shower when you are a senior citizen was not the best thing.. the toilet area was no bigger than one on a airplane..before trip called resort to ask them to fax, email, or mail us a map of the location. was told to go on the internet and find it..
should have been my first clue....would not recommend ever!!!
This hotel was a major disappointment. Service was poor (person at front desk would barely make eye contact much less speak). The valet "service" felt more like extortion. Guests were not allowed to use luggage carts thereby forcing one to use a bellman in addition to the valet. Before I had even gotten to my room, they had socked me for another 10 dollars. Then I paid (in tips) every time I wanted to use my car. Room was ok but needed to be for the price. I would not recommend this as a place to stay in the summer. It was dark and removed from the summer action.
THe rooms were very nicely laid out, celverly divided, a genius floor plan with a HUGE tub in the middle, many sinks and all amenities. The service was above par and very helpful and courteus . Great location away from the crowd and also nearby to the casinos and skiing and lake. Excellent place.
Nice for Skiing at Heavenly
If youre skiing @ Heavenly- its probably one of the best places to stay, especially w/ kids. Its just across the street from the Heavenly parking lot- you can almost walk w/ equipment. If you aren't skiing @ there, no reason to stay here as its miles to the casinos, restaurants & lake.
The place does a pretty good job squeezing quite a bit into a small amount of space- its a medium rise, average looking building (6 floors?), with a parking garage beneath- but parking is by valet only- you can park on a few of the nearby streets if it isn't snowing.
They've got a nice bar, good restaurant fairly priced and a well heated but outdoor swimming pool. The help was very friendly. Our rooms was bigger than average, but try not to pay more than $200/nite, particularly in the summer. Ours had a large j. tub dividing two portions of the room, making it suite-like, with a small fridge & microwave. Elevators are few & quite crowded, causing long waits or treks via the stairs. Otherwise, this property worked well for us.
"Chalet" unit not for claustrophobic
Beware ... the "chalet" units at this resort have the smallest separate room for the toilet I have ever seen -- I have closets bigger than this room! It's so tiny and uncomfortable that you can't even turn around. The rest of the unit is okay.
I eventually left after a few days and stayed at Harvey's. What a tremendous improvement.
The two other types of units available are better in terms of the above complaint. We were able to view both types inasmuch as we have booked a second unit for a handicapped friend. Due to a snafu neither of the two handicapped units was available. After a lot of aggravating dealings with the manager, the resort did offer to upgrade her to one of the larger units. However, neither was comfortable for a handicapped person and she eventually booked a hotel for the remainder of the week and left this resort.

Got up early and headed down the shoreline of the lake foe about 40 miles until we came to South Lake Tahoe. Found a hotel for the night, showered up and went out exploring. What a beautiful spot, apparently the Emerald Bay Area, where we were, is one of the most photographed bays in the world. I convinced Glen to join me for an hour on the water ...
... had fun sledding using the silver window shades (sorry Mum and Dad!) until it got dark while Gary and I went down and had a look at the cove, very pictureskew!
We decided to explore a bit of the Lake the next day and after big sleep in, washing and housework we headed around the western side of the lake. We were surprised by the roads, super narrow with trees very close to the edge (dodgy with the width of our camper!) and very windy. At one point the road went ...
... The evening only got better as we got to know Jim and Loraine Clark more. Jim is known as the train man when it comes to movies. He even played many parts as an extra. He did tell us that he usually was killed in a few train wrecks. He could be seen in tV and Movies such as Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, You will see him in a train scene with the Lone Ranger as well as Throw Mama From the Train among a few. He showed a pocket watch that use to belong to ...
