Family Friendly Hotels

The Whole Bunch Can Stay And Play

North Lake Tahoe hotels and resorts welcome families to enjoy their stay. West Lake Tahoe hotels and lodging offer lots of fun things for the wee ones as well as the grown ups.

  • Mourelatos Lakeshore Resort: Among West Shore Lake Tahoe hotels, Mourelatos Lakeshore Lodge is a standout for kids. Youngsters love being able to use the outdoor recreational toys provided here for guests, including an aqua glide water trampoline, frisbee golf, beach ping pong and more. Inside, kids enjoy playing Wii and watching movies on the flat screen TV. 
  • Ferrari's Crown Resort: Kids go to town on the daily complimentary breakfast which includes delectable pastries and cereals. When warming up is a kid's top priority, hopping into one of the two hot tubs does the trick pretty nicely. It's also fun to splash around in one of the two outdoor pools.
  • Firelite Lodge: The family friendly accommodations at Firelite Lodge include complimentary continental breakfast each morning. Kick those legs and paddle those arms in the seasonal outdoor pool. Sitting in the year-round jacuzzi feels like the perfect treat after a dip in the pool.

North Lake Tahoe Hotels & West Lake Tahoe Hotels

The are plenty of excellent hotels and resorts in North Lake Tahoe including the world-famous Resort at Squaw Creek in Squaw Valley between Truckee and Tahoe City (closer to Tahoe City), and the Village at Northstar located just off Highway 267 about half-way between Truckee to its north and Kings Beach and the shores of Lake Tahoe to its south.   Both resorts offer excellent seasonal specials and deals so if interested check back periodically.  Families with kids have plenty of hotel and motel options on the North Shore including the Mourelatos Lakeshore Resort which is right on the shores of Lake Tahoe and has equipment rentals for guests and picnic tables for outboor meals.  The Pepper Tree Inn in downtown Tahoe City is a popular choice for budget conscious families that want to walk to the beach, local shops and restaurants. 

The Granlibakken Center and Lodge just south of Tahoe City has a ski slope, pool and ropes course on site and also caters to large groups for conferences, business events, weddings and family reunions. Ask about their special deals that include their awesome breakfast buffet. Many of the other North Lake Tahoe hotels have equipment rentals or free equipment so that you can ramp up the fun factor of your visit to the beach.  In Tahoe, unlike other fancy vacation destinations, guests are not expected to pay for beach-chair service.

Many of the best North Lake Tahoe hotels, motels and resorts offer deals and special offers that include a daily complimentary breakfast which is a nice feature when looking to get to the slopes early in the day (see Granlibakken above).  Some motel and hotel rooms have kitchenettes where guests can save money on eating out and cook simple meals in the room.  The Tahoe North Shore Lodge in Carnelian Bay offers kitchenettes, free Wi-Fi and is well  known as an affordable value based motel.  People also refer to value-based hotels as cheap hotels - so do your homework and make sure when booking a cheap hotel it's just the price that's cheap and not everything else. 

Looking for a pet friendly hotel in North Lake Tahoe?  The Cedar House Sport Hotel in Truckee is pet-friendly and welcomes your well behaved four-legged best friend(s).  With your pet by your side, explore Lake Tahoe's outdoors areas in the best company possible.

A favorite on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe is the newly renovated Cedar Crest Cottages.
