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

This is your basic motel accommodation. But spotlessly clean - even in the corners in the bathroom, under the bed, behind the door. Yes, I looked. And a very good price for the area. Staff was very friendly, available, efficient, and sporting what seemed to be an honest smile.

Excellent day out for the whole family. The animals have so much room and it's great to see them in a more natural habitat rather than small compounds. The biggest plus point is the free admission during winter. Definitely worth visiting.

Excellent motel 6. Room had a refrigerator and microwave and was very clean. Bed was comfortable and staff was friendly. Don't quite understand the negative reviews for a motel 6- have you never stayed at a motel 6 or other affordable hotel?! What do you really expect?!- seriously, come on people- its ridiculous, this is a great place to stay... More

I'm doing a road trip ... all i want is a place to pit stop. Motel 6 is a budget chain so I have no idea why people complain that it's run like a basic motel. You want luxury - spend another $100/night and you'll probably still fall short! Sure - It's basic, but it offers you a bed, a... More

I actually enjoyed this Motel6. Well located, stores around, helpful employees. My room was not too bad. I even decided to stay one more night. Obviously, don't expect too much from a Motel and don't forget to go grab your free coffee before 11pm !
