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.

The room was clean, the staff was courteous, and the food and entertainment at the restaurant was very good. In our haste to get over the pass in the snow storm we left valuable clothing in our room and they made sure they were returned to us.

Broken toilet, broken shower taps, poor water pressure, unpredictable hot/cold water, bed wooden furnishings that gave splinters, rolling bathroom door doesn't close, above bar with loud music past midnight, breakfast was pitiful, gross, restaurant dirty, no staff.

The Hotel Becket is very close to the Heavenly Gondola station and shops. The casinos just across the Stateline in Nevada are also an easy stroll away. It's very laid back in true Californian style. Free breakfast with a wide choice of food and a great restaurant for lunchtime and evening. Outside, gas fire pits mean you can sit outside however cold it is. There is enough free parking on site and the lobby has free coffee all day. There is an all-year round hot tub and a pool in summer. Book for mid-week or a whole week and it's great value for money - the prices are very keen but weekend skiers fill the place from Friday night and the room price on a Friday and Saturday can triple. Overall the place could do with some updating but the staff more than make up for it and so the Becket is a great place to stay. We will be going back. Read less

We enjoyed our stay, the location is fantastic if you are skiing at heavenly it is just a short walk to the gondola. Room was sufficient, nice size, nicely redone but not fancy by any means. They are dog friendly which was great, close to bars and restaurants, on site restaurant was a great place to grab evening drinks, we did not try the food… Read more
We enjoyed our stay, the location is fantastic if you are skiing at heavenly it is just a short walk to the gondola. Room was sufficient, nice size, nicely redone but not fancy by any means. They are dog friendly which was great, close to bars and restaurants, on site restaurant was a great place to grab evening drinks, we did not try the food except for breakfast which was sub-par, but typical hotel breakfast. The water pressure in our room was terrible which was, honestly, the worst part of our stay. Staff was friendly an efficient. We would return Read less

Pros: •Bed is comfortable, comfy sheets and pillow soft •Excellent location •Free hot breakfast (biscuit & gravy, toast, fruit, juice, oatmeal and etc) we didn’t try it...chose to sleep in. •Free parking •Amenities in the room: small bottles of Shampoo, Conditioner, & Lotion, soap bar, hair dryer, iron, iron board, safe, mini refrigerator (no freezer), tv •Dogs allowed •Restaurant on site...X Crows (BBQ this is also the place you get your breakfast) Cons: •Loud!! Bring ear plugs to sleep. You can hear doors closing (more like slamming), dogs barking, people talking outside. Does not have double pain windows •RESTLESS SLEEP!! •Water pressure horrible. Takes a long time for the water to heat. •No pool •No gym •No DVD • Only one outlet by the bed. The nightstand closest to the bathroom did not have an outlet. Had to charge my phone on the desk. •Limited parking even though it is free •No fireplace This place received a cosmetic upgrade but not a construction renovation. There’s a few items that needs to be addressed and can make this place a 5 star. For us if we are waken up every hour of the hour with loud noise, it’s not a hotel we would like to experience again.
