We stayed in the two bed, two bath cabin on the lake. Every morning when I opened the cabin door, I was greeted with a spectacular white snow filled view of the lake. I recommend staying at the Tahoe Sands for the wondrous view. Staff was very helpful.

We have been coming to Tahoe Sands for 10 years and while Tahoe Sands is an older resort with some wear and tear, they have been slowly improving the units and resort overall. I am pleased with their progress and you can't beat the location.

We're very pleased with our week long stay in unit 501. It's well furnished and comfortable just like a home should be. Everything is in working order, the bed clean and comfortable. Upon arrival the wonderful friendly staff made us feel welcomed and at ease already. We had an excellent stay at Tahoe Sands.

We love staying in Tahoe in our cute little cabin! The little kitchen, the fireplace, and the bedroom down the hall feel like a little home away from home. The only complaint I have is about our bed in the bedroom. Every morning I woke up in pain, but I have a sensitive back.

Tahoe Sands Resort is an older (1970s?) style motel that has received significant updating to include at least a minimal kitchen in each unit. We have stayed here several times primarily because of the stunning location on the north shore of breathtaking Lake Tahoe. The improvements continue and this time we were thrilled to enjoy wonderful new beds, new carpeting...

Right when we arrived they made us feel like family. The water pressure was a little low in our cabin but nothing we couldn't handle. The fireplace was so nice and heated the cabin quickly. We really enjoyed our stay

Love the new laminate floors; very spacious room; entrance is an eye sore; stairs should be cemented and/or painted; shower stall is tiny and shower head was installed very low; physical key entrance is inconvenient; towels should be changed daily

Staff was very helpful, manager very rude and cold. Property is poorly maintained. Only on cottage has been correctly rebuild, the rest we are wasting money on bandages. Been an owner for about 20 years, wish I never purchased. Has not been the same since Wayne left.

We stayed in 509 which is a refurbished 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath condo on the non lake side of the highway. The refurbishment was well done except we did not like the Jack and Jill bathroom; the two bedroom units in the main building on the late have two full master baths which is much nicer but they have not...

Love the access to beach & water. Cozy & comfy, ALWAYS enjoy the spa & hospitality events. Very close to restaurants, grocery shopping and variety of shopping venues. Certainly our type of homey atmosphere....relaxing, quiet AND easy access for travel around lake.

“Room 403, on the Mountain side, is about ten years past it's time for upgrade. If you do not want pets on the property, don't allow pets on the property, period. As a dog owner I understand we are not welcome everywhere, but your policy of partial acceptance is not a happy experience.”
