    Lake Tahoe accommodations

    Does anyone have any experience with the hotels in Lake Tahoe? Looking for a room with a bed that IS NOT 4 foot high. This is the most important aspect of the room to me. Don't care if it's 1 star or 4 star. The lower the better, never have found a room with the bed too low. I search this forum but didn't find any helpful answers. I hope maybe someone can pass on some first hand experience. Thanks

    btw - Carson city is a possible alternative.

    Have you reached out to the hotels and tell them what you need and why so they can also give you options?

    Lake Tahoe has Mom and Pop hotels to chain hotels like Best Western to resort style and trendy like Hard Rock.

    I've stayed at the Resort at Squaw Creek before. Their accessible rooms were great and I found the hotel itself to be very accessible. I can't recall offhand if their bed height was OK, but I'm sure if you asked they'd accommodate you. I do recall that their accessible bathrooms were very well done.

    Where in Lake Tahoe? The south shore (Nevada) has the casinos and the big casino hotels, and is likely to have what you are looking for. The North Shore (California) is a little less developed, but has some nice hotels. You might also want to consider an AirBnB or VRBO. Lots available in the Tahoe area. AirBnB lets you search by accessible features, including bed height, and you can verify this with the owner before booking. Here is an example for a house in South Lake Tahoe (roll in shower, elevator, etc.):

    Thanks for the replies. Probably want something in South shore, don't care about gambling but was wanting to take the Gondola Ride (until I saw the price, $50 seems unreasonable). My son will probably want to do a little gambling. I'd like to find some centrally located so I could just cruise to the lake/Gondola/Casino in my chair but the most important thing is the bed accessibility, my son is more than willing to help but I'd rather do it myself. I will definitely check out AirBnB and VRBO.

    Just remember if your a person that doesn't travel much one of the issues with on demand services like AirBnB and others you have zero recourse at the time you arrive and your accommodations are not as you need.

    Most host are not disabled so there interpretation of accessible can be very broad.

    So you do the back and forth with the host prior on needs and wants then you arrive and you cant get in the bath or shower, toilet is to low, no grab bars, kitchen is not accessible or you cant get in or out of the unit.

    These are just some of issues people have told me about or worse the pictures are nothing like the unit!

    Now in a hotel you can work with the hotel on another room, getting a shower chair, etc.

    Does this happen all time no of course not but its the last thing you need to happen and it can.
