Lake Tahoe Hotels and Lodgings

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 choices of Lake Tahoe hotels will keep you as pampered as you want or don’t want to be. Lake Tahoe hotels 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.

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 of Lake Tahoe lodgings 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.

Varieties of Lake Tahoe Hotels

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 or bike, you can curl up next to a crackling fireside in your charmingly rustic room while watching the snow fall gently outside. 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. The lake, and your proximity to it, figures into most properties’ appeal.
