Embassy Vacation Resort Lake Tahoe

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by Kermacks on October 22, 2003

Best Things Nearby:
The resort is at the east end of South Lake Tahoe and approximately one mile from the California/Nevada border. There is a large variety of activities close by, as the resort is located on the lake shore and close to a golf course, the casinos, and many restaurants within walking distance.

Best Things About the Resort:
The 6-storey resort is situated on the Lake Tahoe. Some units have a beautiful view of the lake, but most face the Heavenly Ski Run mountain. Each 2 bedroom unit is spacious. The bathroom off the master bedroom is huge and has its own deep tub Jacuzzi. The resort is within walking distance to several restaurants and a discount dining card was provided on arrival. The resort has an indoor/outdoor pool, which is connected so one can swim from one to another. Resort staff were very friendly and helpful.

Resort Experience:
We rated the unit as 'fair' because we were in a unit in need of refurbishing -- carpet frayed, living room furniture badly worn and mattresses flat. However, units are in the process of being redone, and we saw a newly decorated condo with its bright new colours, rugs, furniture, drapes and bed. These we would rate as 'excellent'. While the units are spacious, the kitchen area is small. However, it is well-stocked with appliances, dishes and utensils, and all were in good working order. Instructions are provided on operation of many items in the condo manual. There are 3 televisions in each unit along with CD and VHF players. The master bedroom has a king-sized bed. The second bedroom has two queen-sized beds, a table, chairs and its own partial kitchen. Each unit has a small balcony, which, together with windows that open in each room, allowed us to get plenty of fresh air. Units are also air-conditioned. Laundry rooms with coin-operated washer and dryer are located on most floors. There are two elevators and these were always very fast.

The resort has many scheduled activities for all ages and an activity centre, which has been well-designed for children, leads outside to a central courtyard with grass, play equipment, etc. There is a fitness centre with several activity machines. A restaurant and a small bar are located on site. Another wing is planned for the resort.
