Quaint feel, good price

Staff was very helpful from the moment we got in after hours during a bad storm to restaurant recommendations to checkout. Resort was away from the glitz of South Lake Tahoe - some may like it, some may prefer to be closer to the nightlife. Nice fireplace in the common area to warm up at. Our 2-doubles room had very limited space for 4 adults and baggage, but was clean. Towels could have been plusher, but it's not like I'm paying for 5-star accommodations here.

Family getaway

We stayed at Richardson's for two nights for the ski trip. We arrived the hotel pretty late around 11pm. To get in we need to use the phone to get the locker code to retrieve the key inside the locker. The room is clean, small (cozy) and with wood ascent. There is no TV phone inside the room, which is perfect for us.

Nice anc cozy hotel

Camp Richardson Resort & Marina is a very nice and cozy hotel. The interior has an historical and natural fashion, all tidy and clean. Yes, there is no TV in its rooms, but wifi is free. Unlike many motels where the air conditioners are noisy, this hotel has central heating which quiet and sufficiently powerful. The community room is spacious with lots of tables, chairs and sofas. Also TV and VCR available. During our stay, there was a Christmas party being held beside the furnace. And don't forget the Jacuzzi outside, :-) Front desk staff are easygoing and helpful.

A little disappointed!

The room is very small and cramped. There is no TV in the room. No phone in the room. The internet signal in the room was weak and hence will not work. It is located in a beautiful part of the lake, but once it is dark you cannot do anything in the room except sleep! You have to walk down to the front desk for any thing you need as there is no phone in the room. Too expensive considering these amnenities
