It's been awhile since I visited South Lake Tahoe. Are all their hotels and resorts now charging such high fees? In addition to a higher room rate (for a "good" rated hotel) than average, a high tax rate is applied and then on top of that, a resort fee paid directly to the hotel. By the time I would book a $150/night room, I'd walk away with a bill closer to $200. One I looked at was charging an additional $25 extra person fee, even though I was booking a room with 2 queens, easily accommodating the 4 of us. If this is the norm, I think I'll vacation elsewhere, so my buck goes a little further!
