Beware of the extra charges!

$26 per night for parking, in addition to the "resort" charges. Room small, a tiny portion of their two room apartments locked off for this rental. Expensive all around and not worth it.

Perfect location, clean and friendly.

Pros: Location- Location -Location. The pool area was lovely, there was a cute little breakfast coffee shop right under the Gondola .
Cons: Include room service with the price, I understand that parking is a challenge.
We were troubled to have to either pay $27.00 a day parking at the hotel and then tip every time we needed our vehicle. The other choice -park about 1 1/2 blocks away at Harrahs Cusino free parking lot, this was our choice after the first night. Although it was inconvenient and a walking distance in dress attire it was suitable. If you wanted your bed made or clean towels you had to give 24 hours notice and pay extra. Unpleasant, the rooms are already pricey

What a beautiful place!

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
I'm really glad we chose to stay at Marriott's Timber Lodge. We stayed in a villa for a week it was lovely. The location is convenient and the amenities were great. So close to the lake, walking distance to the casinos and to the restaurants in the Heavenly Village.

The hotel was conveniently located at South Shore Lake Tahoe within a short walking distance of shopping, casinos and restaurants. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. The room was nicely furnished, clean, comfortable and quiet in the evenings. Parking is limited and valet service is available for an extra fee.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: only valet parking at $26 a day! we were not aware
As soon as you pull up front the boys in valet are right there to greet you. They open the doors for you and always ask how our outing was or if we needed any directions.. When you walk in hotel the staff is there with a big smile and a hello! They really can't do enough to make your stay perfect.. OH!!! we really wanted to take the beds home with us!! Best night sleep we had in years!! Looking soooo forward to returning to the Marriots Timber Lodge! So worth to get the two bedroom villa with balcony !! Spectacular

Quality and location of the hotel are excellent.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, location
Cons: no free breakfast
The location of the hotel is outstanding for skiing at Heavenly. It is also great for Casino access or any of the other areas in South Lake Tahoe. The quality of the room and the facility is excellet. We had a 2 bedroom for 2 couples and it was perfect with a shared living and kitchen area, but we each had our own bedroom area with separate bathrooms. Very nice place.

Nice Hotel

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, close to gondola, close to casino
The location was great, the room was small for 4 adults and the bed was awful . it sloped down from the middle on both sides. We were there to ski but the little to now snow so we decided to leave early, we discovered then that the hotel room was privately owned and that they had to get permission from the room owner not to charge for the days we had booked. I would definitely go back but I would check the room status before parting with any money. (the owner was very gracious and allowed us to check out early with no charge).

Great location, huge rooms.

Pros: great rooms
The room is more like an apartment. Very spacious and clean. Has its own kitchen and dinning room. Walking distance to the lake, restaurants, and resort casinos.
