About The Incline Lodge

The Incline Lodge is a newly renovated 38-room mountain lodge in Incline Village, NV, USA. Located less than a mile from the shores of Lake Tahoe, the idyllic Incline Lodge combines laid-back style and curated hospitality. While Lake Tahoe is most well-known for its winter and summer attractions, The Incline Lodge is a year-round destination full of endless opportunities for unforgettable moments with family, friends, or colleagues. Each day, they encourage their guests to live in the moment, find their flow, and make memories in one of the most magnificent places on earth.

“In our first six months with Mews, the hotel has seen tremendous results. As we focused our efforts on facilitating a seamless, technology driven guest journey supported by first-rate customer service, Mews enabled us to make significant strides in both areas. Furthermore, through constant innovation and product updates, there continues to be unlocked potential within the platform.”

Although OTAs are helpful for increasing customer reach, they charge high amounts of commission. This makes direct bookings a much more favorable booking channel.


The Incline Lodge uses Mews Booking Engine to manage and maximize direct booking conversions. Thanks to a clear and fast guest journey, guests can reserve rooms in only a few clicks. Each room type has been configured with specific photos and descriptions so that guests know exactly what to expect.

One in four guests check in online


Guest expectations are changing, with many now preferring to check themselves in to the hotel ahead of time to cut onsite admin.


Online check-in is part of Mews Guest Journey. Any time before arrival, Incline Lodge guests can check themselves in via an online portal accessible from any device with internet. This means that when guests arrive, they can be shown straight to their room, while it also provides more opportunities for upselling and engagement during the check-in. Upon reopening after their renovation, Incline Lodge guests will also have the opportunity for a contactless check-in thanks to complimentary integrations with smart lock door code systems, which communicate seamlessly with Mews.


• 25% online check-in rate
• 8% higher ADR for guests who check in online
