Stayed here for a night an extra day before our wedding. Three parties in three rooms and it was a nightmare. Run by a couple and both not friendly. The guy was rude to a point. First thing he said after booking in was don't plug too much in because it'll blow the fuses! One heater and one phone later... More

Have stayed here several times in the past, but not for the last two years, therefore was puzzled by the recent bad reviews, and because of a good coupon deal, decided to come back. Darned if I can see what all the fuss is about. First of all, folks, this is a budget motel, B-u-d-g-e-t, not a 4 or 5... More

I have stayed in many hotels through out the United States and this is by far the worst ever! I guess first sign was parking lot was empty on labor day weekend in South Lake Tahoe. Upon opening the door had to push it open cause it gets stuck all the time, then lamps by bed did not have light... More

Do not stay here unless you're really desperate!!! I am over 65, have traveled around the world, and after stay of one night, can safely say its the worst value ever received, most poorly maintained motel ever. Noisy. Missing numerous plumbing parts. Leaks. Light bulbs burned out. No coffee. No amenities of any sort. Dirty, empty pool. Just pathetic.

Where do I start - As soon as I walked in the room I was grossed out. I wanted to leave right away. But only because everything else was booked in town we had no choice with the 4th of July holiday. Empty pool with no water, mold, old dirty bedding, nasty shower, moldy frig, no AC and it was... More

After reading previous reviews, I wasn't expecting much. We were in tahoe for fun, not the room. That being said, it was an average hotel, great location in downtown. It needs upgrades (there was no a/c/heat, small old tv, pool & spa empty in July), but the staff was nice, and the room & grounds were clean.

This was by far THE worst stay we have had in a hotel to date! It was first off very hot outside and when we went into the hotel it was twice as hot and there was NO air conditioner! It was unbearably hot which made it difficult to sleep. The room smelled like stinky feet, and did not look... More

We were lied to about the price - the indian workers were pathetic and extermely rude. Had originally called and was quoted 49.00 and once we arrived all they had was a suite for 89.00- with no consideration to assist with price even though they had made the mistake-- these idiots have no clue about customer service! Seriously - sleep... More
