INEXPENSIVE LODGING NORTH LAKE TAHOE
Tahoe Biltmore in Crystal Bay, NV includes breakfast www.tahoebiltmore.com
Most of the free resort shuttles stop at this location.
Apres Ski Club Lodge at 8473 Rainbow Ave, Kings Beach, CA: $15 bunk/$20 semiprivate room ($55 annual membership fee & semiprivate rooms are payable online with PayPal, hot tub, free WiFi) www.apres.org
About 3 blocks from free resort shuttle stops (Kings Beach 7-Eleven at 8593 North Lake Blvd or Kings Beach Rite Aid at 8245 N Lake Blvd)
Please note that Apres Ski Club Lodge is a lodge where you bring your own sleeping bag/pillow/towel/soap NOT a 4 star hotel so you will have to adjust your expectations accordingly. Go to the website to check out photos of the lodge. If you can handle staying at a lodge, this could be a good option as your membership is good for 12 months so you would have an inexpensive place to stay at Tahoe next season. You must call/email the lodge director to get door code before you arrive.
