    Grand Residences by Marriott, Lake Tahoe
    South Lake Tahoe, CA
    #6 in Best Hotels in Lake Tahoe
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 918 reviewsTripAdvisor (918)
    Free WiFi

    Located in South Lake Tahoe (on the California side of the lake), the spacious lodgings at the Grand Residences by Marriott are ideal for vacationing families. Skiers appreciate that the gondola up to the Heavenly Ski Resort is just steps from the front door. When you need to thaw, take a dip in the hotel's heated pool or hot tub. Because this is a Grand Residence, the rooms are owned by Marriott Vacation Club members, meaning that the amenities resemble those of timeshares more than hotel rooms; you'll get a fully equipped kitchen and dining area. Even though the resort does not charge for Wi-Fi usage, the $29 per day valet parking fee galled many recent guests. This property is a Marriott Rewards category 8, meaning that members need at least 35,000 points to book a free night.

    Perched on the California-Nevada border, this casino resort in Stateline, Nevada, is great for Lake Tahoe visitors looking to test the kindness of Lady Luck. The on-site casino's slots and table games afford plenty of ways to win (or lose) big, and visitors agree that the facility makes for a good few hours of play. Guests at Harrah's Lake Tahoe also enjoy the nightly entertainment found in the South Shore Room and the PEEK Nightclub. And for a quieter experience, you can get a massage at Reflections The Spa or lounge by the indoor pool. The rooms aren't too shabby either with Gilchrist & Soames bath products and 300-thread-count sheets.

    Neighboring Harrah's in Stateline, Nevada, Harveys Lake Tahoe is another good home base for both gamers and skiers.

The hotel also has an on-site pool, concert venues, and nightlife options (many of which it shares with Harrah's). Guests agree that these common areas are both convenient and stylish. But when it comes to the quality of the rooms and their limited amenities, recent guests said that Harveys could still use some work. Visitors say the accommodations are in desperate need of an update and several say their experience was "nothing special."

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 3.5 based on 470 reviewsTripAdvisor (470)
    Free WiFi

    Montbleu Resort Casino & Spa is situated in Stateline, Nevada, slightly removed from the southern shores of Lake Tahoe. Rooms and suites feature large windows with mountain or lake views, and a warm color palette with deep brown, rich red, bright yellow and subtle beige prominent throughout the decor. But most people come to Lake Tahoe to spend time outside their room, whether it's with outdoor activities or on-site entertainment. Montbleu Resort Casino & Spa offers plenty of diversions: the Onsen Salon & Spa treats guests to spa services, saunas, whirlpools and a fitness center; the indoor, grotto-like pool encourages relaxation; the casino boasts various slots and table games; and the Opal Ultra Lounge nightclub appeals to partygoers. Dining options abound as well. The resort is home to a steakhouse, a buffet, a craft beer bar, a cafe and more. While Montbleu undoubtedly provides visitors with ample options and amenities, many recent travelers said the property as a whole misses the mark. Guests cited poor housekeeping and slow service as particular turnoffs.
