Again, I booked this location based on reviews from trip advisor. Wanted something within walking distance of Harvey's for concert. Searched on Trip Advisor map and found this as being the most reasonably priced. This is a small mom and pop place with no special frills or big lobby but if you can look past that we found our room... More

To be honest this motel was mediocre - at most. The rooms were very small and the whole accommodation was very old. The beds were very uncomfortable but at least the rooms were some kind of clean. The owner was handsome but appeared some kind of confused. The stay was for one night alright but next time i would rather... More

The hotel is going trough a major remodel but that didn't stop the staff from taking great care of us. Room was large and clean and had everything we needed. The location is convenient and close to lake and sights. We had a very nice stay.

Room was totally outdated and not very clean. We left the first morning of our 2 night stay to find vomit and feces next to the back stairs where the parking is. When we returned hours later it was still there and again the following morning. I understand the there is young people partying in the area but it should... More

Our family just got back from staying here and was very satisfied. It was very comfortable and is located in a great location. This hotel is in walking distance to the Heavenly Village and all the Casinos. It is also walking distance to the beach. We felt secure with our car parked outside our window of our room. The staff... More

The price and location of this place were fine, but everything else left much to be desired. The room was clean but bare bones...no place even to hang up clothes except for some pegs on the wall! We asked for an iron and got one, but they didn't have ironing boards. The TV was a flat screen but only played... More

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
