It was perfecto! We got a room right on the beach, definitely worth the extra money, the tiki bar was a good time, everyone was chill and that’s my jam! It has a private roped off area of beach to keep the peasants out, which I definitely appreciate. Beach, please.

We arrived at Boathouse on the Pier expecting to have a nice leisurely mid-week lunch. We were surprised when we walked in the door to see a large party of about 20 people at a table, but decided to stay anyways. The sole waiter, Gage, did a fantastic job of juggling the large party as well as the smattering of other tables. The food was excellent and once he had a moment to breathe he stopped by our table for a friendly chat. We are very pleased that we decided to give it a chance even though the odds looked slim for good service. We will be back several times this summer to continue to enjoy this gem of a restaurant.

Had a great time at the resort. We got a room right on the beach. First thing we did was walk the beach. Pretty much everything is in walking distance. Safeway is right across the street if you forgot anything. They have the fire pit going in the evening with s’mores. And if you have a dog child it’s pet friendly. Highly recommended

I booked a lower level beach view room and it was the best experience ever the sliding door opened right onto the beach and it was amazing. I honestly loved it there, the room had a fireplace a tv and a comfy bed the shower was also great it was very peaceful and romantic it would not disappoint if u booked a weekend getaway with ur significant other. Don’t forget free s’mores to do by the fireplace!

This hotel is in an amazing location being right on the beach. Firstly before you read my next comments it may well of been out of season as suggested by the manager who was helpful at check-in. Upon arriving the hotel looked incredibly run down and deserted that we thought we'd arrived at the wrong accommodation. The lights were off throughout reception and all the hotels facilities were closed during our stay and we were told that we needed to go elsewhere for food and drink. Our room faced the beautiful lake and was a wow factor with snow all around until we walked into our room which was freezing due to not being heated, it felt and smelt similar to some student/hostel rooms and the bathroom had no heating. Due to there being no security measures in the car park and very few customers it made it feel very isolated and unsafe with general public loitering/hanging out during the night in their cars 'smoking' and drinking. This hotel probably looks amazing in the warmer months but a couple of tweeks during winter and spring would go a long way to pull it back.

Hello Tania, first of all let me say that I apologize your stay did not meet expectations and someone from our management staff will be reaching out to you to discuss your stay. However some of what was mentioned in your review is simply not true. While we do not offer breakfast at this time we do have 2 full service restaurants that are open 12pm- 9pm for lunch and dinner service. One is located in the lobby right next to our front desk, and the other is located on our pier over the lake. Also all of our 261 rooms have 2 sources of heat, the first being an in room gas fireplace and the second being the wall unit that does heat as well as A/C. As I mentioned above either myself or one of our managers will be reaching out to you shortly, and I apologize if there was any miscommunication on any of the issues you mentioned above but we have staff on property 24 hours a day to assist if you had questions or needed assistance.

We love coming here! Beachfront fun but still close to Heavenly and everything in South Lake Tahoe! Can’t wait to come back in the summer! We always have a great, clean room and the rates are reasonable. It’s like having a backyard on our vacation. Our kids love it here!

Great place to stay especially if you bring your 4 legged friend. I had the partial view of the lake, but honestly being able to open your sliding door and walking out to the beach is beyond excellent. This place is pet friendly which to me its a plus. Check-in was a breeze I got there an hour before Check-in time and was able to go to my room. Will plan to visit again soon.

This was such a great location and close to food & activities. You can’t beat how centrally located the property was. It was on the lake and the restaurants were delicious especially the buffalo cauliflower! From checking in to checking out, Tiffany at the front desk was so personable and provided excellent service. I was able to get quick responses from the text service to the front desk and that was my first time using text communication with a hotel. The only thing I’d change would be to have a microwave in the room, but there was one in the lobby. I would recommend this place for families and would stay again!
