    Location compared to Condition

    The Location is awesome, you just can’t beat it for the price. For the Price per night I’m not complaining at all but they need to fix up the rooms and clean up the place.

    The place is really really - but really old, could use a Serious Remodel - retro room, appliances, bathrooms, furniture etc... everything squeaks when you walk, you can hear everyone in every other room too.

    Staff was friendly, but way understaffed,

    Old, outdated. Staff was friendly ,but there's just so muct that needs done to the place. Everything was original from the early 60s, except microwave, & small fridge. Waste of time trying to get Internet to work. Terrible picture on satellite TV. Sorry, but I hope this helps someone else avoid the disappointment that we experienced

    Close to gondola.

    There was no lamp close to my bed. So I had to walk to the nearest switch to turn on/off my lights. There is no one at front desk in the morning until 9 am.

    Great value

    The place is literally a block away from california nevada stateline. Very accessible to heavenly ski resort which is very nice place to go. Since its at the border of california and nevada, you can walk couple of blocks and you'll be at nevada side, which means, you can gamble.

    The room needs renovation. Not bad for the value but definitely could be better. There are few lodges/motels/hotels that surrounds the place itself and therefore i think makes the owner dont bother to renovate the place. Since the lodge is very close to thr lake and a block away from nevada, it is very convinient and stay from.

    The staff was very friendly and it is located just down the road from the lake. Me and family had a great time staying there.

    My only real complaint is that the pool was hot. It needs to be cooled down. It should not feel like I am getting into a hot tub. Plus it could use a cleaning.

    Not going twice

    The only thing convenient was that it was close to Harrah's

    1. The pool was empty. My kids were looking forward to a vacation with swimming and the description said it had a heated pool but the pool was empty. 2. The room was extremely hot and the fan did not work. We had to open the window that was nailed shut, so my husband had to remove the nail to open the window otherwise we were in a room that was constantly 90 degrees. 3. Two doors down from us was a group of drug dealers who live there at the lodge and they tried to sell my husband drugs.
