Lake Tahoe Hotels, Inns, Bed And Breakfasts & Campgrounds

No matter your budget, the season, town or purpose for your vacation, Lake Tahoe hotels, inns, lodges and cabins are numerous and cater to practically any desire. From the no-nonsense motels to the swankier resorts, your Lake Tahoe hotel choice will keep you as pampered as you want or don’t want to be. Lake Tahoe accommodations range from familiar hotel chains to homey log cabins, and the options in between blend the endearingly kitschy with upscale authenticity to create a diverse selection of places to stay.

Varieties of Lake Tahoe Hotels

You can find this range of options in all the towns around the lake, but the South Lake Tahoe hotels are the most in number and the most diverse since you have everything from lakefront resorts to small hotels to casino grandness. Kings Beach hotels are also varied, with some of the older,cool motor hotels existing in harmony with higher end lodges and condos. But all Lake Tahoe hotels have something interesting and value-added to offer. Take advantage of free continental breakfasts, WiFi and access to beaches or ski slopes.

If you’re looking for Lake Tahoe hotels that feature cozy lodges with log exteriors and artisanal designed interiors, check out the Truckee hotel options. This cool, Western-influenced town can offer you sports-influenced hotels, rooms in historic buildings in the middle of town and national chains. Other accommodations, like Squaw Valley hotels, are greatly influenced by the ski slopes and mountain setting. In between snowboarding down black diamond trails and exploring mountain trails on foot on on bike, you can curl up next to a crackling fireside in your charmingly rustic room while watching the snow fall gently outside. When it’s so peaceful and homey, you won’t want to leave! Other Lake Tahoe accommodations, like Incline Village hotels, take advantage of both the beach and mountain setting. If you’re looking for an experience intricately tied to Mother Nature, Tahoe City hotels are a great bet. This area has a good number of campgrounds to choose from along with your basic hotel up to a well-respected resort. The lake, and your proximity to it, figures into most properties’ appeal.   

Lake Tahoe Hotels...Extended

Sometimes, if you’re traveling with a family or big group, something larger than a Lake Tahoe hotel room is needed. And, of course, this popular vacation destination has plenty of cabins, lodges and vacation homes to choose from. You’ll have access to your own kitchen, multiple rooms and an excellent home base to come back to after a day full of Lake Tahoe activities. There’s something soothing about staying in a little wooden house tucked away within a thick forest of pine trees. It’s like you and your crew are the only people for miles…even if a restaurant is just down the road.

Speaking of restaurants, we know that dining is essential to every vacation. Fortunately for us foodies, many of the Lake Tahoe hotels, inns, lodges, and resorts have at least one restaurant on site. Whether you’re in the mood for a hardy burger or want to taste some Sierra Nevada/West Coast-influenced dishes, you won’t even have to leave your hotel to satisfy your cravings.
