I have stayed at the Midway Inn in Lake Tahoe for a number of times. My stays have always been good.. clean, great price on room and dog/pet friendly (a plus and must when i need a hotel). Staff is very friendly too. My dog and I will stay at the Midway Inn again!

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

The nicest part of my stay here was the friendly and cute Yellow Lab dog the manager owned that gave me a warm greeting when I checked in. I realize this motel is rated just one star, but I am not sure it should be included on the Hotwire.com site at all. I must admit I usually do not stay... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms were clean and adequate. Clean bed, linnens and bathroom. This older motel is not fancy or the Hilton, but if you want a good night's rest, this facility is a good value. The continental breakfast is a nice bonus! It appears the management is upgrading the rooms. Great central location. Close to the lake,... More

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. Better than Motel 6 and half the price! Ask to see their guinea pig!

(Hmm. I'm not sure how the scoring system works. At the point of my writing, there were two reviews, with both giving "poor" reviews — yet their combined score somehow equaled "average." Let's see what my own "poor" review does to the average.) There is no air conditioning. There is also no cross ventilation, hardly any ventilation at all. (There... More

I have stayed in some bad motels in Tahoe just to save a buck (we're talking $20/night, the type of place where you need to bring shoes to wear in the shower), but this motel bumped up their prices because they recently "remodeled" their rooms and since we're supposed to be adults now we figured we'd spend a little bit...
