When we arrived, there was trash in the parking lot and there were trash bags sitting out in the hallways, probably from housekeeping. The television didn't work. The toilet seat was sliding off. There was no AC, just a portable fan. The bed sagged. We could smell cigarette smoke in the hall ways and there were cigarette butts at the... More

We are so sorry that you did not enjoy your stay! We were unaware that you required a room with air conditioning, and would have done our best to accommodate this, had we been aware. We did, however, buy you a brand new fan; it was two days old. Unfortunately, since you arrived directly after July 4th, due to the... More

I stayed here for 5 weeks during the 2014 ski season at Heavenly. The Inn is very conveniently located just about 5 minutes from the Gondola and the casinos. My room was always warm and comfortable. The manager was always available if I needed a local's advice about the weather or information about the area. My room was very clean,... More

First of all, the location is perfect. You are literally minutes away from gondola, casinos and the lake.  The staff is very friendly and helpful. When we found out we have problems with the microwave and called the reception, the issue was taken care of right away. The guy at the front desk was always there to help, whether it... More

don't expect big comfort and frills in this hotel. This is a very simple, nice place on a good location near the beach. the room had good beds & airco, the walls were rather thin. owner is very considerate and makes you feel welcome. if you're looking for a fair budget hotel, this is the place!

We were pleasantly surprise with this diamond in the rough. The outside needs a bit of updating, but the rooms were exceptionally large, well appointed and spotlessly clean. We even had the sounds of nature greeting us from the room's radio. The mattress were comfy and the linens were soft. The staff, inclining Gary and the owner (a WWII Vet... More

Stayed at the Best Choice Inn over Memorial Day Weekend and we were pleasantly surprised! We stayed at this hotel last year and we really liked the location, so we decided to stay again.

There are entire families living here full time with dogs. It is functioning as a very low level apartment building. You do not want to stay here even though the area is nice.
