We stayed at the MontBleu for 6 nights while enjoying the outdoor activities offered by Lake Tahoe at the end of August during the COVID pandemic. It was the cheapest hotel option in the area (including the other nearby casinos, resorts or hotels nearby). While the price was not cheap in an absolute sense, the hotels in Lake Tahoe tend to run pricey, so it was the best deal available. The hotel is not luxurious by any stretch of the imagination, but the room was large, the bathroom was roomy, the bed was comfortable and the room was clean enough. The other reviews were correct, there was some strange smell walking through certain parts of the entrances to the hotel. I could never figure out exactly what it was or where it was coming from. The room was large, and the bed was very comfortable. The sheets looked clean (no obvious stains or marks). I did notice a Cheese-It and clothing tag on the tray that held some cups and the ice bucket, presumably left from a previous guest. The bathroom was very large and also modern looking. The shower was huge, and looks luxurious, but they seemed to skimp out with a cheap, small showerhead. The flooring in the shower also didn't drain perfectly, so at the end of the shower there would be a little puddle of cooler water that you would need to pass to get to the towels. There were a few stray hairs leftover in the bathroom as well. Due to COVID there was no housekeeping, but when we called for additional towels, soap and shampoo, it was brought up promptly. The casino itself was very quiet, while Harrah's/Harvey's and Hard Rock across the street were all much busier. The casino was not open in the mornings or during the day time, I'm not sure if that was due to decreased amount of visitors/gamblers due to COVID. I think due to the COVID situation, they increased the table minimums so the BJ tables were all $20-$25 minimums and the Craps table was $15-$20 dollar minimums. The Craps table had 3-4-5x odds and the All Tall Small bonus bet. All the dealers were really nice and the cocktail service was pretty efficient. While we didn't go to the pool, we did take a look at it and it looks pretty nice (though the hot tub area is closed during COVID). Overall, not an amazing/luxurious stay, but, if you're not too picky and just looking for a reasonable stay near the lake, this is a good spot. Cleanish, large and well lit rooms. It's located on the main drag, on Highway 50, right near the lake and other casinos and near the state line with Heavenly Resort on the California side. Read less

We checked in on 08/18/20 thinking it was a 4 stars hotel & resort so we were safe instead we got less service than a 1 star. The room was not clean and had no microwave and fridge in the room.

I called front desk as to why it didn't the basic fridge and microwave, they told me because of covid19 they removed them. They told me however, if I wanted the fridge and microwave, they could provide me a room for an additional $40. She added if I didn't like their policy, they could refund my money and find some other hotel. I was like WTF is this place! Desperate to gouge customers for money now. Avoid at all costs! Read less

I stayed here before but it had been a few years. The hotel rooms have since been remodeled to a more modern look, though that must have been over a year ago.

I stayed here before but it had been a few years. The hotel rooms have since been remodeled to a more modern look, though that must have been over a year ago. There was no one taking temperatures at the door and people were just going in and out. There was a machine by the door which was apparently for this purpose, but I was not sure if anyone was monitoring and if it was only looking at people checking in. We had requested a non-smoking room, but the room had a stale smoke smell. Part of the renovation was the removal of the Roman bath tubs which is too bad. Now it is just a very spacious shower stall. It can probably fit about six people at the same time, though there's only one shower head. The bathroom overall is very spacious to the point that it feels like wasted space. Additionally there is no separate door to the toilet stall so unless you are ok with this, only one person can be in the bathroom when using the toilet. There is no microwave or refrigerator in the room. Not good considering so many places in the area do and the TV stand could accomodate one or both. The TV is flat screen, but very small for a very spacious room. There is no clock on the night stand. Strange when other properties are placing Bose speakers or Smart speakers. It is very difficult to find spare outlets for your electronics. There are outlets on the light fixtures by the bed, but they are very loose and will not hold items plugged in. Again, a miss when other properties are adding many USB outlets by the bed and on the desk areas. We found a clump of hair in the shower stall and the shampoo bottle appeared to have been opened and handled with a dirty hand. Not good at a time when hotels are trying to emphasize their cleanliness. Currently one of their restaurants, Del Soul, is open. We attempted to place an order one night. We literaly spent 20 minutes with the phone ringing non-stop and no one answered. Eventually we went directly to the restaurant at which point they told us it was too late to order, even though it was still 30 minutes before the posted closing time. Overall, face mask wearing was on the honor system. When we reserved the room, we did not receive an email confirmation. We called the hotel and they quickly sent one, but it did not specify the room rate. We had also opted for a special offer of $50 F&B credit for $20, but this was never honored (luckily I was not charged.) Overall, our stay was disappointing as my expectation is more from the big casino properties in town. Especially when they are charging almost $30 (plus tax) in resort fees on top of the room rate.

Nice hotel for a one night stay. We were stopping through after camping in the Sierras. The security guard, John, was so kind and professional. Unfortunately, our room smelled like cigarettes while our friends room across the way did not have that problem. Our room was 5-10. Then the AC would not get any cooler than 69 and it was a hot, miserable… Read more

If you are a COVIdiot this place is for you. If you have the smallest bit of class… RUN! Myself and my boyfriend had originally planned to stay at Montbleu for 3 nights but had to cut it to 1 night. We would’ve just cancelled if we had another place to stay the first night but unfortunately things were booked up elsewhere. Given that we are in a global pandemic, I had called ahead asking what protocols they are taking to ensure everyones safety. They ensured me that they were taking everyones temperature at check-in, cleaning rooms more and enforcing everyone to wear a mask. When we got there, nobody had their temperatures taken at any point. We did see one guy go up to the security guard and ask him to take his temperature as a JOKE but that was the only time we saw anyone get their temperature taken. MOST people were not wearing a mask. This is the kicker… we decided safety wise considering the pandemic and in order to avoid completely PACKED elevators, it would be best to take the stairs. That’s when we saw two DEAD MICE under the stairs. Photos attached. There wasn’t a time where the elevator area wasn’t completely packed with people. The air vents in the room were loaded with dust and lint. We called from our room to the front desk to express our complaints when Elizabeth allowed us to cancel our last two nights but on our way out we went to the front desk when we talked with Perry about our complaints. Perry was very unapologetic, pretty much telling us our complaints were invalid and that they “must have missed us” with our temperatures and couldn’t care less about the mice. Our first night was not comped given the immense amount of issues we had. We also saw a guy going up to him to check in in line before us with his mask completely off and he didn’t say a word.
