  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

Really sweet folks at the front desk and fantastic location which makes it a good value. However, the buildings, rooms and beds are dated. The beds are easily the worst, oldest, cheapest I've ever slept on in a hotel. So if you're with friends and maybe kids, go for it. But if you're trying to impress your significant other, this is not the place.

Great location, except for maybe having a dispensary next door. There was a whole lot of smell in the air and a couple weirdos hanging around lol. Not a deal breaker, but maybe better to stay without the kids...I would still stay here again though. Love the Tiki Bar on the beach and the watersports rentals being right there too! Room was clean and nicely decorated.

    Arrived at 6pm, our room was still not ready. Got crampy room, nothing like posted pics. Limited to no closet space. Room was dirty (combs and other stuff under bed). No towels. Had to come back 3x, then was promised delivery to my room, nothing. No towels at pool, pool not heated. Several days w/out towels with small kid. Neighbors on balcony could look straight into our room, several air cons from other balconies making a lot of noise into our room. We left early, never gonna go back ever. Too much money paid. Plus, staff was friendly, but there's something seriously wrong with how it is all managed and presented.

    Hi everyone. I just comeback fron Lake Tahoe and I want to tell everyone tha this hotel is Not what that pictures shows. First is old and allowed pets and all you see is people with dog’s and to many kids. Cleaning was aceptable. But we are not coming back to this park. That beach is a public so we have a 10000 people. I was no fan at all
