First, we are grateful that South Lake Tahoe has a Hotel on the Stateline that allows pets. It is a great location. We booked our reservation several months ahead but rebooked it a couple of times when we found a better rate. When I called about the “rate guarantee” they said I needed to cancel and book again. Each time I got my deposit back but each time I was charged another deposit. So, it is impossible to have the hotel handle this like a Marriott would. You’re on your own trying to get the best rate guarantee and I never got the advertised 10%. We checked in after 4:30 pm and when we got to the room 546 it was directly next to the elevators and the sound was such that we got ear plugs to wear at night. One of the three elevators made a honking sound on occasion. Before we used the room, I went back to the front desk to get another room and they said there are no more rooms. I asked them to call if one became available, but never got a call. So, If I were you and you have a pet, I would pay no attention to the 4:00 pm check in time and get their 2 hours early. The room was unusual. There was a small space for a TV with 3 small drawers. There was a small table with 2 chairs and no desk for the computer. The only 2 very small glasses were in the bathroom. That’s it! We ended up using the closet shelf as a counter. There was no coffee pot but when we called, they brought one up. The bed was comfortable, and they provided extra pillows when requested. The shower was A+. The check in person was very nice. The parking is easy and clean. One issue was our understanding that our pet could not go in the casino. This meant that every time we went out to Stateline, we had to walk in the driveway to get to the sidewalk. On our last night, I visited with a security person and said that we could go anywhere. We just wanted to go out the front door on Stateline. and had no plans to visit anyplace else. The pet relief area. was muddy. The staff is very pleasant, room was clean. The buffet at next door Harrah’s was wonderful! The price was fair, and everyone plays the resort fee game. Internet speed was good. Staff was friendly to our cockapoo. I may be back but not in room 546.
