We love staying in Tahoe in our cute little cabin! The little kitchen, the fireplace, and the bedroom down the hall feel like a little home away from home. The only complaint I have is about our bed in the bedroom. Every morning I woke up in pain, but I have a sensitive back.

Tahoe Sands Resort is an older (1970s?) style motel that has received significant updating to include at least a minimal kitchen in each unit. We have stayed here several times primarily because of the stunning location on the north shore of breathtaking Lake Tahoe. The improvements continue and this time we were thrilled to enjoy wonderful new beds, new carpeting... More

Right when we arrived they made us feel like family. The water pressure was a little low in our cabin but nothing we couldn't handle. The fireplace was so nice and heated the cabin quickly. We really enjoyed our stay

Love the new laminate floors; very spacious room; entrance is an eye sore; stairs should be cemented and/or painted; shower stall is tiny and shower head was installed very low; physical key entrance is inconvenient; towels should be changed daily

Staff was very helpful, manager very rude and cold. Property is poorly maintained. Only on cottage has been correctly rebuild, the rest we are wasting money on bandages. Been an owner for about 20 years, wish I never purchased. Has not been the same since Wayne left.

We stayed in 509 which is a refurbished 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath condo on the non lake side of the highway. The refurbishment was well done except we did not like the Jack and Jill bathroom; the two bedroom units in the main building on the late have two full master baths which is much nicer but they have not...

Love the access to beach & water. Cozy & comfy, ALWAYS enjoy the spa & hospitality events. Very close to restaurants, grocery shopping and variety of shopping venues. Certainly our type of homey atmosphere....relaxing, quiet AND easy access for travel around lake.

Still a nice place to get away. We stayed on mountainside this time...these units are more up to date. However, the maintenance work on the units appears sloppy (defective bathroom lock, warped laminate flooring, missing utensils, etc.). Not what I expect for the annual "maintenance" fee. Upgraded front office very nice.

Things here at the resort are improving even with the downturn of the economy. The staff is very friendly and cooperative. They made sure our weather conditions were excellent and the scenic beauty remained INCREDIBLE!!! Thanks a million.

Tahoe Sands is just south of Truckee and Hwy 80 on the North shore of Lake Tahoe. With cabins in the trees and cabins or apartments with lake views, you have it all. Peace and quiet or access to water sports and to ski areas. There is always something to do year around.

The Tahoe Sands Resort. The sunny-side of the lake's best kept secret. Centrally located in Tahoe Vista, the Tahoe Sands Resort spans across four acres of open lakefront property and also offers a more private get-away hidden in the wooded acreage adjacent to the main buildings. Studios, 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom units complete with kitchens are available throughout the property. The large open grass area offers a great recreational space or a relaxing place for all guests. Our private sand beach, one of Tahoe's best, is just steps away. ... more   less

“Room 403, on the Mountain side, is about ten years past it's time for upgrade. If you do not want pets on the property, don't allow pets on the property, period. As a dog owner I understand we are not welcome everywhere, but your policy of partial acceptance is not a happy experience.”
