This is an older hotel, about 4 blocks from the casinos. So much charm and very clean. The price was good and you get breakfast too. The staff was very nice and right on it. I plan on going back. The pool was being redone, but when you have Lake Tahoe to play in, the pool just didn't matter. Yes,... More

The Tahoe Chalet Inn provides good value at a location that is quite central without being crowded or noisy. It is just minutes from the Nevada border (and casinos) and close to beaches and the Tahoe Keys. Their free continental breakfast is standard fare - coffee, cereal, yogurt, pastries, and such. Decent quality.

Motel is located right on highway 50 so convenient walk to casinos and restaurants but also lots of traffic noise. But the noisy air conditioning worked very well and blocked out the traffic noise. The basic room was nice and clean and there was ice, laundry and a soda machine. The rooms vary widely but in our basic room looked... More

My family and I stayed in the family suite complete with a full kitchen, living room and 2 queen beds. Beds were comfortable, the hotel was quiet, parking was free (they accommodated multiple vehicles without and issue), laundry on site (one machine), light breakfast included. While it wasn't the newest place to stay in, we got A LOT of space... More

Although this motel is a bit dated (as most are in South Lake Tahoe), the 'theme' rooms are a nice touch and the staff is VERY helpful. Traveling as 2 couples, our reservation put us in a nice room with a canopy bed. But our friends were put in the 'back' part of the motel away from us in a... More

We booked this hotel through booking.com because we needed a place to stay that wasnt expensive and we just needed a room to crash in. I wasnt willing to pay $80 a night or more for a Super 8 or something like that, so I was thankful we found this place when we booked. Check in is at 3:00 and... More

The room came with continental breakfast which was really good. Not over the top but quite adequate. We just needed a place to stay so this satisfied our requirements.
