    Fabulous

    It was close to the main strip in Tahoe, very close to the staeline and close to the lake. The rooms were warm and clean and there was plenty of coffee in the room.

    Superb

    It was family friendly and with a handicapped person the room was great! Comfortable and clean.

    There could have been another electric outlet.

    Fabulous

    The receptionist who checked us in was very helpful, we asked to change rooms and this was done immediately with no problem at all. Good location for either Lake Tahoe lakeside or South Tahoe Lake town centre, both in walking distance. Good location for exploring lake area.

    Exceptional

    Unbelievable value! Large, clean room for a ridiculously low price. Close to lots of South Tahoe entertainment. I arrived around midnight, and the security staff immediately helped me get my room key. There was even a microwave, safe, refrigerator, iron/ironing board, and a coffee maker.

    Minor defects like water staining on the bathroom wallpaper, and the faucets did not close properly. Again, minor things...

    I did not like anything about Big Pines Mountain House.

    Staff was not helpful. Smoke detector went off continually starting in the middle of the night. Room reeked of urinal cake smell.

    Big Pines was conveniently located, clean and comfortable. The breakfast and the coffee were both good. Staff were friendly and our stay was a great value. Highly recommend.

    Superb

    Nice location - near shopping, casinos, lake and restaurants. The rooms are quite large, clean and came with coffee maker (and coffee) mini fridge, small microwave.

    The staff lodging was right below my room and they had their TV on way to loud - had to bang on the floor at 4 AM . I brought this to the attention of front desk and they gave me another room. All in all a good place to stay.

    Super place to stay!The economical price was a much added benefit!

    The toilet water would run and the faucets did not work well.

    The room was clean, the bathroom products were organic, the office staff member was very nice and helpful (Nicole). I hope to return to Lake Tahoe when it is snowing. Thank you.

    Superb

    Very nice staff, walking distance to Heavenly gondola and restaurants, casinos, movie theatre. Very clean and great value for the money. Small old style lodge. Rooms were spacious and had all we needed.

    The breakfast consisted of donuts and juice/coffee and bruised fruit set out in the lobby. There were not enough seats so you had to take your coffee and leave. Also our room had a window over the bed with blind but no drape so the room got light early.

    That the kids had their own bathroom in their room. The staff was friendly, even if we had kids. :-)
