Stayed here with my husband for our weekend trip. Got the room for $200(with tax) via motel 6 website for 2 nights which is an average. The room was spacious enough for 2 of us and clean. The girl at the front desk was very friendly. Plenty of parking spaces. There was no wifi, fridge and microwave in the room... More

My husband and I stayed there for 5 nights and we were happy with the facilities and the service we got a discounted rate and free wi-fi with our AARP card. For an additional $3 you can get a fridge and a microwave. Landry facility on site. The bike path runs behind the hotel. Great place to stay after a... More

Stayed here with our two dogs. Friendly staff, clean rooms. Not far from the lake. Would stay here again. The room was cozy, clean water pressure was perfect! Across the street from a grocery outlet store incase you forgot something.

Typical Motel 6 except this one hasn't been upgraded. Therefore, it had carpet, and a sink faucet that actually gave as much water as one could want. Our room was small for 2 beds; one pushed up against the air conditioner and the other against the wall. However, they are right on one of the major bike/walking routes, and near... More

The room itself was a typical Motel 6 room, but unlike most Motel 6 rooms, this one was quiet and had a great view with a bike path for a dog walk right next to the parking lot. Ask for a room upstairs in the middle on the back side. The bike path / dog walk goes by the Truckee... More

Typical motel 6. You get exactly what you paid for. A simple bed with a small bath and a wash. Out dated TV but has ESPN! This is on lake tahoe blvd and close to all activity areas. No hassles while checking in or checking out. They don't offer free Wi-fi which is little surprising in this day and age.

The price is right in South Lake Tahoe. The rooms are pretty standard for a Motel 6. They're clean enough but I wouldn't want to spend more than a couple of nights here. There's ample parking, which is nice. Hotel staff were overwhelmed on a busy long weekend but were friendly. Make sure to book a non-smoking room (if that's... More

I just checked in and this motel 6 is not renovated to their new hardwood floor, flat screen TV, upgraded room... NOT what I was expecting. So I would say not worth the money. Wait until they are renovated then it will be worth it.

This is one of the nicer Motel 6's with nicely kept grounds (perfect for your pet). Rooms are clean with good internet & TV connection. Staff attentive. The only complain I have is there was a stray dog barking almost all night on the property. Several people staying there said it belonged to someone staying at the motel but staff... More
