Don't stay at Horizon A review of Horizon Casino Resort- Lake Tahoe
Horizon was terrible. Our "non-smoking" room smelled like old cigarettes. The air conditioning system made loud noises at night. Parts of the room were not clean.
The hotel, although renovated in 1994, looks and feels old. From the decor to its upkeep. There is an attempt to try to give the place an "elegant" atmosphere. However, everything just seems so cheap.
Our worst experience was at their Le Grande Buffet restaurant. It was anything but "grande." When I walked in, I was first impressed by the selection of food. However, at closer look, the food did not appear appetizing. Vegetables were dried out, chicken was bland, and spices were heavily applied to other dishes that lacked flavor.
On a positive note, the entire staff was very professional and pleasant. However, that alone would not make me want to go back.
I would advise anyone to pay a little more and stay at Harrah's across the street. Horizon is for those who are on a smaller budget and don't mind the lack of quality.
