Frankly, the only good things about this hotel are the staff and the location. The location is great. If you just want to enjoy Tahoe and won't spend any time in the hotel anyway except to sleep, this is probably usually a good value. Unfortunately we stayed over a holiday weekend and the rate was 3 times the norm. The... More

I have written a few reviews about this little hotel and have all been good. I have stayed here 20+ times and have never had bad service. The staff is on point and never rude and the maids are terrific. OK, if you want all the frills stay at the Marriott for 300+ a night. I come here for business... More

Best aspects of staying here are convenient location and some rooms are pet friendly. Rooms are large but beds are not at all comfortable. Property is old motel style. Front desk staff were helpful but other staff were not very friendly. Hotel is off of main road and is quiet. Short walk to heavenly gondola and shopping areas as well... More

Great location if you like to ski! You can walk to the Heavenly lift, shopping, restaurants and gambling .You don't have to drive anywhere if you don't want to. We had a room at the top of the stairs but we did not hear any noise. We had a large but cozy room, great bed, clean fantastic shower, good heater!... More

I will say the staff was friendly and accommodated us when we immediately asked for our money back after seeing our room. That said the floor was disgusting, not "icky" as others have described it, DISGUSTING, and the bathroom/room was gross. Have you ever seen a police tv show where they use DNA to help solve a crime? Good luck... More

This is a place we stay often when we head out to Tahoe. The location is great, walking distance to both the casinos, and lots of places to eat. Supermarket is also within walking distance. We have gone snowboarding at heavenly which is pricy so we save some money by staying here. It has what you need warm heater bed... More

Located four blocks from the casinos this small, comfortable and inexpensive motel gets the job done! The location is quiet, beds were okay but the pillows were in need of help. When we checked out the Mgr. went out of his way to show us what roads to take as we headed south. There were fires around the area and... More

I'm not sure who all the haters are? The poor reviews for this inn must be the competition. I get early check in and late check out with no problem. The rooms are clean and smell fresh, they are also large and have a fridge and micro. This may not be the newest and most upgraded motel. If you don't... More

The rooms may be a little dated but it was clean, beds very comfortable and the breakfast although continental is enough to jump start your day. Pool and hot tub and a private beach is a nice touch. It was convenient for Tahoe Queen Cruise and in the evening an easy walk to the Casino. Staff are extremely pleasant, the... More

This hotel is at a great location. Its 10 mins walk to the beach and 5 mins walk to restaurants and gondola ride. Staff is friendly, room was clean but carpet was old and icky. But this was the best location we could find for the price. Room had TV(old CRT), refrigerator, microwave and AC all in good working condition.
