A grand resort at the base of Heavenly Mountain Resort's gondola

Guests can make themselves right at home in the cozy, lodge-like lobby of the full-service Marriott's Timber Lodge. Relax in leather chairs in front of the fire, or sip hot cocoa by the outdoor fire pit while gazing at the surrounding Sierra Nevada Mountains. The Heavenly Mountain Resort gondola is just steps away, and bell service ensures that guests' skis or snowboards are ready to go first thing in the morning. Summertime visitors will enjoy sitting by the pool or taking a dip in Lake Tahoe, which is just a short walk away.

Highlights
  • Shopping, restaurants on property; casinos within walking distance
  • Bell service for skiers and snowboarders
  • Outdoor pool and hot tub

Great location

This hotel was in a perfect location to enjoy all that South Shore has to offer. The gondola was steps away to go up to the top of Heavenly Ski resort - which has things going on no matter the time of year that you are visiting. The kitchenette came in very handy (grocery store is under a block away so you don't have to eat out for every meal), silverware, dishes, frig, coffee maker and toaster were well used. The pool was nice with plenty of lounge chairs. My only complaint was that the valet attendants were so slow, we needed to give ourselves 30 minutes to wait for the car, which seemed very excessive.

As close to a ski - in /ski-out resort as you can get in South Lake Tahoe. Casinos are also under a 5 minute walk away.

Awesome place

This is a wonderful hotel and a fantastic location. The staff was okay and helpful, but I have seen better. Some individuals stood out, while others brought the experience back down. Parking sucks. Worst experience I have had. What's up with the high extra parking fees? It seems like Hotels are going the route of the airlines where everything is extra. I hope this doesn't get worse as it would further reduce an overall positive experience. All in all, I would recommend this place and I would go again, but I would try to figure out a better parking arrangement.

Convenient location & friendly staff

Pros: The hotel is in the middle of many good restaurants. It was near the private shore. There were many family friendly activities including miniature golf, the gondola ride, etc.. Hotel staff was very helpful and friendly. Guest laundry was free. Cons: The swimming pool was a bit dirty, although it is probably difficult to keep it clean with so many guests playing. The checkout time was a bit too early (10 am).

ok value

the cost of the hotel was more then most hotels of this quality but what REALLY soured the deal was the $26.00 parking fee. Not to happy about the 4p.m. check -in with a MANDATORY 10 a.m. check out. They absotutely will NOT extend a late check out. if you only stay one night you miss out on 75% of the activities they have planned for guest.

Enjoyed our stay

Clean hotel with very friendly staff at a very good location. My children loved the stay, specially the Cub House. The location is great---next to the main bus station and the gondola. My little daghter lost her mitten, and the staff took extra care to find that out in lost-and-found.

great for families

The amount and duration of children activities was outstanding. Allowed us to have a quiet dinner while our 6 year old was having a great time with other children. Great Staff.

Great location!

The Marriot Timber Lodge was walking distance from the casinos, a nice variety of restaurants, shops and grocery store. Most importantly, the gondola, which takes you to all the lifts, was right outside the lobby door! We upgraded our room and it ended up being very well worth it. It was a large suite with a beautiful kitchen and brand new appliances. LOVE having a washer and dryer in the room! Came in very handy during a ski trip! Very, very accommodating hotel and we will be staying there again during our next visit!
