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 !

Well I have not stayed in a Motel 6 in a long time. But let me say I forgot how very basic they are. My room was smaller than my cruise ship room for my cruise last month on Princess. The towels were small and well the sign said they would not be replaced for 3 days. Not the typical... More

We stayed here just one night before beginning a long backpacking trip on the Tahoe Rim Trail. It was a chance to acclimate to the higher elevation of the mountains. Motel 6 is not known for being fancy, but this one was actually a cut below what we expected. The strangest thing was that the bathtub stopper was unscrewed and... More
