An OK Experience A review of Horizon Casino Resort- Lake Tahoe
I was a guest at the Horizon for four nights in May 2004. I was there attending a convention and business meeting of my national nonprofit organization. I must say that, prior to my arrival, I was apprehensive of staying at the Horizon based upon the reviews posted here. However, my stay proved to be OK - not stellar, but by no means miserable. I arrived at the hotel at noon on a Wednesday and feared having to wait until 4 pm to get a room. However, I was given keys to a nonsmoking room on the 8th floor of the Alpine Tower right away. I had a view of the mountain and not the lake, but was grateful to be able to get into a room quickly and grab some rest after having flown all night. I did not experience the lack of towels, dirty bathrooms, or adjacent guests having screaming sex. My room was smoke-free, quiet, and well-supplied with towels. I did not gamble, so cannot comment on the slots, etc. To get to our convention activities, I did have to walk through the casino which, like the lobby, was fairly smoky at times. The food they served to us was good and I found the staff friendly and helpful. Would I stay here again? Maybe not, but it wouldn't be because of a miserable stay this time.
