I stayed here due to inclement travel weather and they are pet friendly. My room was clean BUT the vintage Coleman wall heater was off in February! I could see my breath for the next 2 hours as I waited for the temp to rise so I could take off my jacket. The TV was ridiculously small & too low... More

I don't get all of these great reviews ? This place was the worst place we have ever stayed in, It was so bad that we left a night early even though I paid the $165.00 per night. Pros: They allow dogs (Pet Friendly) Cons: No Air Conditioning and It get's Hot in Lake Tahoe !! Filthy Carpets, The bottom... More

I was riding solo on a motorcycle and got caught out late pushing the distance for the day. It was late May and between seasons (skiing / hiking). Chose it for two reasons it looked quaint and it was the first motel I came to with a light on. Earl / Lorraine provided me with a clean large room. Checked... More

We actually stayed here to visit family. The primary reason we stayed here was because of its location to the hospital where we were visiting somebody. The service was decent, and it's an OK place if you don't plan on spending a lot of time in the room. It's rather small but offers wireless internet and a small TV. The... More

Our family of 5 has stayed with Lorraine and Earl many times during the ski season in 2010 and 2011. We ski at Sierra so they have a great location for us. We like that they are a single-story motel, avoiding the late night trampling on your ceiling! The other people who have been here when we have stayed have... More

A very affordable motel right off of Hwy 50, just before the South Lake Tahoe "Y" junction. Pistantes is a great place to stay if you want to avoid the crowds on the main South Lake Tahoe Blvd, yet it's not far from that area nor the stateline either. It's also great if you plan to head out to the... More

I looked for hotels that had decent reviews for the most affordable price. It was very reasonable to stay here. The owners were very nice and accommodating. The room was very clean and cozy. The internet did not reach our room which was a bummer but not a big deal. My husband went to their open office area and used... More

It's nice to go on vacation and be treated as if I was staying with family. I always look forward to talking with Lorraine and Earl. Thanks Coyote Den for all the memories my family has from Tahoe and see you soon.

I have stayed at this motel several times & have never had a bad experience. The Price is great, rooms are always neat and clean and the staff is always polite. My children have a great time looking at all the wooden bears & spending time in the spa. I would recommend this motel to everyone.
