Larkspur Hotel Truckee

Larkspur Hotel Truckee Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The mid-range Larkspur Hotel Truckee is close to Northstar-at-Tahoe ski resort and many outdoor recreation attractions at Truckee. The rooms are updated (with the exception of a few relic tube-style TVs), and the feather-mattress beds are super comfortable. A heated outdoor pool, Jacuzzi, free hot breakfast, and popular on-site restaurant offer guests plenty to keep them happy during their stay. Guests who prefer to be lakefront, though, might consider the similarly priced (though not as modern) Franciscan Lakeside Lodge.

3 Peaks Resort and Beach Club

3 Peaks Resort and Beach Club Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The 62-room 3 Peaks Resort and Beach Club is a three-pearl property with a convenient Lake Tahoe location. Some guests find the lobby's dog theme and pet-friendly policy off-putting, while others book their stay solely based on their pooch. Rooms resemble cozy log cabins; some are renovated with contemporary details while others are dated with tube TVs and patterned bedspreads (book one with a fireplace and balcony for extra ambiance). There is a heated outdoor pool, two-tiered hot tub, and big spa, but the lack of a restaurant or bar isn't ideal. Guests get free access to the beach and Heavenly Village is within walking distance. The Sierra Mountain views and scent of pine trees make this spot a better than average mid-range property.

Forest Suites Resort at Heavenly Village

Forest Suites Resort at Heavenly Village Rating: 3.0 Pearls

Location is a huge draw at Forest Suites Resort at Heavenly Village, which is situated about 100 meters from the lifts at Heavenly Village. The hotel, while close to the action of South Lake Tahoe village, is also relatively peaceful and shielded from noise; many trees separate the grounds from the adjacent village and properties. Apartment-style rooms are homey, with carpeted floors, warm-wood furniture, and floral curtains; some have full kitchens and patios. The grounds have an unmistakable motel-like feel. Overall, this mid-range property and facilities may need updating, both for aesthetic and maintenance reasons but it's reasonably priced for the location and features available. Watch out for a pesky (but minimal for what you get) resort fee.

Franciscan Lakeside Lodge

Franciscan Lakeside Lodge Rating: 3.0 Pearls

Located on the shores of Lake Tahoe, the mid-range Franciscan Lakeside Lodge features cozy cottages and rooms in a woodsy, lakefront setting. While some rooms are tucked across the street from the lake in a darker, tree-covered area, the lakefront cottages have excellent views and open to the sandy beach and a private pier where guests can swim and play in privacy. Kitchenettes make dining in (and saving money) easy. And the heated outdoor pool (open seasonally) is said to be the largest in North Lake Tahoe. The downfall? There's no Jacuzzi -- the nearby Cedar Glen Lodge offers one at the same price point.

Basecamp Hotel

Basecamp Hotel Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The 50-room Basecamp Hotel is a unique "green" hotel in South Lake Tahoe, with repurposed decorative touches that are rustic yet modern and witty. The hotel offers an outdoor patio with a fire pit and s'mores kits for sale and a rooftop hot tub, and breakfast, Wi-Fi, and parking are all free. Rooms are large, hip, and camping-themed, with balconies and flat-screen TVs, but to the chagrin of many guests, they lack air-conditioning. If you like to keep your room cool, you're better off at the nearby 968 Park Hotel, which offers AC in the summer months.

Truckee Donner Lodge

Truckee Donner Lodge Rating: 3.0 Pearls

Truckee Donner Lodge is a mid-range, relatively small, motel-style property off I-80. It has a quiet atmosphere and overall cleanliness in its 64 rooms -- a good value for this price category. Because the hotel is popular, and tends to host groups and group events, service can be a bit slow at times. The property is situated a 20-minute drive from Lake Tahoe, in the midst of pine trees and at the base of a good local hiking trail. There is very little immediately surrounding the hotel, but it is close to some area attractions -- such as Donner Lake and Donner Memorial State Park, and various ski resorts off the highway. Free breakfast, Wi-Fi, and parking keep costs low.

Olympic Village Inn

Olympic Village Inn Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The Olympic Village Inn was built to house athletes during the 1960 winter games held in Squaw Valley and became the first large hotel in the area. The rooms were last updated in the 1980s, but a charming Tyrolean exterior, beautiful grounds, and location near the slopes offset the kitschy decor. Balconies and kitchenettes add convenience but there have been complaints of a strong cleaning odor in some units. The price point is lower than at most other Squaw Valley resorts, and guests will have the novelty factor of saying they stayed in a true Olympics resort.

Inn by the Lake

Inn by the Lake Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The 100-room Inn by the Lake is a modest hotel that's buttressed by pine forests. Rooms are large and decorated in classic, slightly outdated furniture, and some have views of Lake Tahoe. One of the hotel's biggest highlights is its outdoor patio with a pool and a pair of terraced whirlpools connected by a miniature waterfall. There's a large highway separating the property from the shores of Lake Tahoe; if this is an issue, Aston Lakeland Village Resort offers similarly priced rooms at a lakefront location.

Cedar Glen Lodge

Cedar Glen Lodge Rating: 2.5 Pearls

Sitting in a small forest area across the street from Lake Tahoe, the Cedar Glen Lodge is a throwback to a simpler time with its motor-lodge design and woodsy cabins. Despite its 1930s-era vintage, the hotel is in a state of constant renewal. Friendly owners, lake access, a heated outdoor pool with Jacuzzi and sauna, charming lodge-style rooms, and free continental breakfast all make the Cedar Glen a great value.

Paradice Motel

Paradice Motel Rating: 2.5 Pearls

Paradice Motel is a good budget pick in an excellent location, a quick walk from the Heavenly Gondola, casinos, and the beach. There aren't many extras; there are free coffee and pastries in the lobby, but no coffeemakers in the 13 rooms. The hotel does have a small pool and free Wi-Fi. Rooms are a bit more modern than the rustic exterior of the hotel would suggest and some have mini-fridges and microwaves. Guests love the attention to detail the staff provides, including thoughtful touches like sending guests off with goodie bags. For guests willing to spend more, the Tahoe Lakeshore Lodge and Spa has more amenities including a spa and a private beach.
