This is an historic style hotel. We enjoyed an upper room with a nice view of the bay. The main hotel is older, which means you better like thing less modern. However, that said, the room was larger than most modern hotels and has a room design no longer found in today's hotels. It was a good experience.

When you first pull up to the hotel, the look has a cool retro look. The lobby has older chandeliers and decor hat really give you the feel of a charming hotel. But, once you get on the rickety elevator and walk down the hallway to your room, you will see the worn, spotted carpets and the charm is gone.... More

Stopped in as we drove the North shore. Played a fun lightening game. Would have stayed longer, but the gal next to me was so gross w/her cigarette. ..and kept talking to the machine. Other than that I love the variety of older and newer casino games. I always come here when I'm in Tahoe.

Definitely NOT anywhere close to deserving the $100 a night to stay here. We could have stayed in Reno for half the price at twice the accommodations. Obvious this dive has seen better days. Not worth more than about $29 a night. Horrible customer service...if any. You can tell the staff does not enjoy their job. Quite run down and... More

For the price, room was adequate. We had a birthday dinner at Soule Domain right next door...exquisite to say the least. And then several good beers at the Mellow Fellow right across the street (CA 28)..The Casino at the Tahoe Biltmore was very friendly and low key.

I spent one night on the third floor of the hotel. Air conditioning does to get to the third floor so management put evaporative coolers ( swamp boxes) in each room.
