My room had cockroaches. The door had a simple doorknob anyone could break into---no deadbolt and not even a simple chain lock. I think this says enough, but my review must be 200 characters at least. The room had many poorly spackled patches on the walls that had cracks in them. I saw two baby cockroaches crawl out of the...

Now I am one for budget motels! I am a self professed cheapskate! I defend budget motels/dumps all day long....until now! I don't even know where to begin on this place! There is no beginning and no end to this nightmare! For all the previous reviews saying it was "fine", "okay", "just alright"....all I can say is they didn't stay... More

It was fine for what it was. After staying at Park Tahoe Inn, it was DEFINITELY not worth the price. However, it was clean enough and warm so I suppose that is what matters. I would not recommend this place if you have other options, though. The owner was fine but he was not particularly nice and the bed was... More

The motel is easy to find at the main road. The rooms are okay, relatively clean. There is a thick carpet on the floor which doesnt really give you a good or hygienic feeling. We had a blocked toilet, the owner was quick to help which was nice. But it is very noisy at night, mostly because of the strange... More

“good room, good price & great location” 4 of 5 stars Reviewed january 19, 2014,the owners are amazing and generous people that really go out of their way to make visitors feel at home. For cheaper than a camping spot you get a comfortable bed, fridge, microwave, coffee, mini-breakfast, and sun deck.

I left for vacation one day early, was getting in late and needed a place to rest my head for one night. I snagged this place on Hotels.com for $33 all in. It's conveniently located, hardly a 10 minute walk from Heavenly on the main drag. Parking is limited. It's old. There was no light on in the office but... More

I can only agree with the other recent reviewers. The staff/owners seem like nice people, and their dog is very friendly. Unfortunately the hotel itself is not very nice. Yes, is it cheap. Given the level of competition in South Lake Tahoe, you have plenty of options for cheap accommodation. The rooms were clean(ish) but the beds were uncomfortable and... More

Let me start out by saying I feel bad for writing a poor review, because the staff/owners? were very nice, and yes, the yellow lab was awesome. We chose this hotel because it was not the cheapest and it looked not too bad for South Lake Tahoe when we drove by, and it had "free breakfast" Again, check-in and the... More
