  1. The Sierra Nevada Resort & Spa is a total rip off. The place charges on top of taxes a $25.00 a day resort fee 1/2 the bill is Taxes and resorts fees not worth it at all. Dirty and smelly rooms and Most of the staff at this place have zero customer service skills. BUYER BEWARE….

    1. All hotel, motels, resorts, etc charge that same resort fee. Nothing unusual there. We’ve been to Sierra Nevada Resort several times and always been happy there.
