Travel Blogs from South Lake Tahoe
7th to 10th June 2013 Greetings from Lake Tahoe, I thought as we drove in that I could point out all the landmarks to Anna, however It looks so different without any snow so I haven't got a clue. It's just getting dark as we pull up at our hotel and we are starving so we dump off our clobber and head next door to a German bar, before we can order …
... We through together what food we had, quickly packing up, and we were off.
Ominous storm clouds started to roll in just as we were arriving at the trail head. Though it hadn't rained my whole time in Reno so far, I knew we were bound to get at least a bit wet. We went for it with no worries, we knew what we were doing. We hit the trail and quickly passed 2 old cars that must have been driven off the road and left in the woods to rot away. Defiantly not what I was used ...
... headed north through the park through several 10-15 minute stops due to road construction. The route took me through Kings Canyon which also has numerous giant sequoias. From here I headed down the west side of the mountains which took me through numerous fields of fruit trees and wineries. I had lunch at a fruit stand just outside one of the fruit farms. I had a pluot, red pear and a bunch of grapes.
From the fruit stand I ...
... of Yosemite, we found out that because of the Rim fire the road through Yosemite that we were to take was closed so we had to go a very long way around to Lake Tahoe it took us the rest of the day.'
On the way out of Yosemite we saw all the devastation caused by the fire we could see mountains of trees burnt and still smouldering and we also saw lots of fire trucks and ...
... the rest of this holiday would look like. Could we make it into the Rockies? Was the mechanic's bill going to cut our holiday short? Bessy appeared so well looked after - or were we sold a really well looked after lemon? Were we going to have to travel at 40 mph (64kms) all around North America? Turns out a cable was loose which kept an auxiliary fan working - and Bessy's engine cool up these big climbs. Once Matt tightened with one ...

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
