This post office is great. Even though my landlord doesnt provide mail service here, they are good about holding things for me. I appreciate it very much.


I've watched our mail carrier drive by my post box with the flag up, twice this week! What seems to be the issue! The weather was good, streets cleared of snow and there was direct access to the box! Super frustrating! 1179 O'Malley Drive South Lake Tahoe 96150


Only receive mail once a week,packages once every two weeks at best.stil haven’t received some Christmas packages.also have been told that some idiot ordered foreign made vehicles,two wheel drive for an alpine postal service should consider getting out of the mail delivery business.


Countless issues over the years. Mail is inconsistent with both packages and letters, often sent back, can't get anyone on the phone, the people in person can't help. I'm at a loss as to what to do, other than cut USPS out of my life completely, but that doesn't seem possible. If you just moved to SLT, use fedex and UPS, avoid USPS whenever possible. This place would be shut down by now, if it were a private company.


I just had a horrible experience at the Al Tahoe post office. I was waiting behind two other people at 8:30 this morning waiting for the doors open, no big deal. Came in and the first gentleman went to the counter. They could not find his mail. I stood there approximately 10 minutes. They still hadn't found his mail. While I was waiting I could see the people in the back sorting boxes. I stood there and watched boxes flying across the room! Small, large, heavy, light just being tossed!!! I was appalled to say the least! When I was called next, I handed the lady my yellow card to pick up my package. She went to go get it and returned without it. She asked me if was expecting a package? I said yes that's why the yellow card with my PO BOX number is on it and its in my PO BOX. She yes but are you expecting a package? I told her yes AGAIN. She replied well I don't have time to look for it and handed me my yellow card back. Meanwhile the other gentleman that was before me was still waiting for his mail. I totally understand that they are short handed, we all are. I have lived in South Lake Tahoe for 54 years and seeing those workers tossing packages the way they were was so unacceptable that I'm just beside myself. If I would have had my phone on me I would videoed it. I mean is this really how USPS threat the mail and peoples property? They don't know what's in the packages. I'm just floored. I hope this gets to someone.


Homeowner in this zip dismayed at the leniency of the Postmaster. I'm month to month tenant in mother in law unit called and impersonated me to obtain permission to set up a mailbox in front and was granted and put a mailbox in front without authorization from me, the homeowner. Is impersonating the Landlord/property owner to a Govt postal worker a federal crime? Plus is correct protocol to have the owner fill out forms and show proof of ID and ownership?


Would it be possible to change the home delivery zip code for El Dorado County (unincorporated) residents in the Tahoe Basin back to 96155? Using the 96150 zip code elicits a higher tax rate when making purchases online - a tax that was voted on my South Lake Tahoe residents, but not County residents.


still no phone!


Still no one answering the phone.


No one answers the phones. I called over and over. Very annoying.


No one answers the phone. I am trying to locate a package I sent and can't talk to anyone. Please contact me 315 573 4242
