"Stateline/Lakeside Lodging" Royal Valhalla on the Lake Tip by cwest03


The Royal Valhalla Motor Lodge is right on the California/Nevada boarder, across the street from the lake, a few minutes walk to the casinos and close to skiing. Rooms in this lodge are typical of most motels in the area; small and a bit dated decor but comfortable. You're paying for the convenience of being close to everything so don't expect to get a lot for the price that you're paying. The Royal Valhalla is a bit unique in that it is close to just about everything that you would want to do while in Tahoe in either summer or winter. They even have their own pool and private beach.

The one thing that would keep me from staying here again or recommending this hotel to anyone else is the service. The people at the front desk were not very friendly nor were they helpful. They were very short with me and were less than helpful to another couple that we were with when they tried to use the in room phone. There are so many other hotels in the area that it shouldn't be very hard to find something comparable the next time we go up to Tahoe.

Unique Qualities: The only unique things about the Royal Valhalla is the location and poor service.
