Hotel Becket

Heavenly, Lake Tahoe

The hotel

Part boutique hotel, part ‘upcycled’ lodge, 968 Park Hotel’s every bit as rustic as it is luxurious. Handmade furniture fills the guestrooms – some made from Douglas fir rescued from an old Nevada mine. Your bedding’s anything but homespun though, with luxury mattresses and organic linens helping ease muscles tired from winter sports like skiing and snowshoeing, or from laps of the heated pool in summer. You get complimentary parking (and WiFi), but it’s just minutes’ walk from Lake Tahoe’s biggest draws: Heavenly Mountain Gondola, the Stateline casinos, and the shoreline. Whatever time you return, the CoffeePub will be open, with craft coffees or microbrews served 24-hours a day; but make sure you’re back in time for Friday night’s wine tastings with local vintners, followed by live acoustic music sessions.

This place is awful. It doesn't look anything like the photos online and is so overpriced for the quality. The room i stayed in was located in a dingy building behind the motel. The whole place was creepy and dark. My room was NOTHING like the photos online.

The room 249 was VERY run down and reeked of water damage. The shower was covered in that pink/orangish mildew and the glass was so dirty i could barely see through it. When I turned on the shower water hit the ceiling, so I had to tighten down the shower head which spun around completely on the wall. I thought it was going to come off the wall.… Read more
The room 249 was VERY run down and reeked of water damage. The shower was covered in that pink/orangish mildew and the glass was so dirty i could barely see through it. When I turned on the shower water hit the ceiling, so I had to tighten down the shower head which spun around completely on the wall. I thought it was going to come off the wall. The water damage around the bathroom window was apparent, and there was some strange stuff all over the bathroom walls. The walls are SUPER thin and we could hear our neighbor watch tv all night, on the wall we had the stairs and laundry shoot. Oh my favorite is that we were over the laundry room, so we got an earthquake with every spin cycle. The grab and go breakfast included a bottled water, muffin, trail mix, granola bar and an apple, which was half rotten; not sure how they missed that one! Also the pool and hot tube were not open for use. How can you advertise these amenities and charge for them and not give them? I would have thought that during a slow time through covid these types of issues would have easily been addressed. I will NEVER stay here again in its current state! Read less

The hotel is a former motel with nice window dressing. It's not fancy but it is perfectly comfortable (the beds were actually very comfortable) and the location, directly across from the village center and a 2-3 minute walk to the gondola were ridiculously convenient.

Dirty room, the tape blue section of this hotel is completely run down. The shower turns to ice half way though, burnt out light bulbs, mold on the ceiling about the heater and In The bathroom. Used Dental floss stuck in the nightstand, sticky bathroom counter and sticky spots on the carpet. I would not recommend staying especially if you have… Read more

Our fire pit for our family room did not work, which would have been nice since it was below 30° during our visit. Our key reader wouldn’t work half the time we tried to get in. Maintenance didn’t do anything about it. No towels were provided in our room and when I called to get some, I was put on hold for 15 minutes and still never talked to… Read more
Our fire pit for our family room did not work, which would have been nice since it was below 30° during our visit. Our key reader wouldn’t work half the time we tried to get in. Maintenance didn’t do anything about it. No towels were provided in our room and when I called to get some, I was put on hold for 15 minutes and still never talked to anyone. Two out of our four beds didn’t have sheets or comforters and the walls are paper thin. You can literally hear everything that’s going on around you. Just spend a little extra money to stay elsewhere because you will be very unhappy here. Read less
