3 Peaks Resort and Beach Club Review Revisited – South Lake Tahoe

Check out my original review of 3 Peaks from May 2012.

Last month, I really needed a getaway.  Art did a little bit of work installing security cameras for my boss and we ended up with some bonus money.  Art thought we might get a good deal on a room if we booked over Easter weekend.  We looked at a few casinos in Reno, but we mainly just wanted to relax.  Then Art checked out our old friend, 3 Peaks Resort and Beach Club.  We were able to get a Deluxe King room with fireplace for $227.40 for 3 nights, including tax.  Over a holiday weekend, it was a great deal!!

The first room we were given had no table and chairs.  Not a big deal to some, but since I didn’t want to blog from the bed, it was a problem for us.  We asked for a different room and were upgraded for free to a studio suite.   The studio suites are very nice, with the upgrades of a full kitchen and balcony.  I didn’t get any photos of our room though, because we only spent one night there.  Then, some guests moved in next door with a chihuahua (one of the benefits of 3 Peaks is that every room is pet friendly).  Our “neighbors” left in the afternoon, but left their little dog behind, for over 6 hours.  And he barked and barked and barked.  The management attempted to contact the dog’s owners, but they never responded.

So we were moved again.  This time to a parlor suite, which is technically a slight downgrade from the studio suite, but we actually preferred it.  We had two rooms, so if one of us wanted to sleep, the other could shut the door and use the “front room”, bathroom and kitchen without disturbing the sleeper.  Here’s some pics:

There are so many fun and inexpensive things to do around Lake Tahoe.  Our biggest concern was rest and relaxation, so one day we just hung out in the area, drove over to the Tahoe Keys and did a little shopping.  We were within walking distance of the Stateline Casinos, so we kept plenty busy!!

The next day we drove around the lake.  It takes a little over two hours to drive around, assuming no stops.  But of course, we had to make stops!!

Of course, for our final night, we had to go to dinner at the buffet at the top of Harrah’s.  The views are incredible and we were lucky enough to get a window seat.

After a fun-filled day, it was so nice to go back to our room and relax in the soaking tub for two:

3 Peaks Resort and Beach Club ReviewAs before, the staff was super-friendly and extremely accommodating.  The room was very comfortable and clean, although it could have used a little updating.  For the price and location, though, I have no complaints.  I give 3 Peaks Resort and Beach Club four and a half dog barks Arf!! Arf!! Arf!! Arf!! Ar–
