Originally three separate motels, The Green Lantern, The Royal Coachman, and Tahoe West Motor Lodge, our property was built as part of the tourism boom from the 1960 Winter Olympics at what was then Squaw Valley, formally putting Lake Tahoe on the map as a world-class winter sports destination. Our new name is a nod to The Royal Coachman and to the history of South Lake Tahoe.
In 2000, the Heavenly Gondola and Village opened just a short distance from our hotel and revitalized the area by providing direct access to the mountain. The transformation continues in South Lake Tahoe overall with ongoing enhancements to expanded recreational activities, new businesses, and revitalization of old properties.
In 2021, we expanded our existing footprint with 40 new rooms and a gym; a new event space is upcoming in 2023. Our latest room expansion allows us to host double the guests, while the addition of our indoor/ outdoor event space provides further opportunities to host business retreats, corporate events, and intimate gatherings.
