When stayed here over NYE with a group of friends. When when pulled up and checked in, my expectations were low. The place is not much to look at from the outside and the check in desk reeked of smoke. However, once we got to the room we were (literally) able to breathe a breath of fresh air. The rooms...

First off, the lady who was working the front desk was incredible. She stayed up late to let us in after our flight to Tahoe got delayed. Moreover, she filled our cooler with bottled water every day and made sure we had ice in our cooler while we were out. The room was incredibly clean as well. The bed was... More

I would really like to give this place a higher rating but I can't say it was better than average, at least compared to the other places we've stayed in South Lake Tahoe. The room was clean, included a frig and microwave (which we used) and fireplace (which we didn't really need it in August), the owners were friendly but... More

We have stayed here several times and are never disappointed. The rooms are charming and clean. The price is right and the location is great. Mike and Cindy, the managers, are helpful, friendly and accomodating. We will certainly come back!

My buddies and I stayed in the suite on our motorcycle ride and the room was just right for us to pick up a care package from STATELINE BREWING and hangout after a long day o f riding. The owners were even offered us their own covered parking spot for our bikes.

an older motel that has some updates, but wish I had known that my room didn't have A/C ahead of time. The staff was very helpful and brought me a fan. Tahoe is cool at night but I needed the fan since I'm from a cooler place. Also, my TV was really old and didn't work. might have just been... More

I booked the Deluxe room with 2 beds. It was very nice and clean. It had a built in fire place. Great bathroom. Nice microwave and fridge. Above all, walking distance to Heavenly Village / Gondola. Highly recommend it !

I've stayed here twice now and both times, I have been very satisfied with the rates that I have payed and the quality of the rooms. The staff is always friendly and welcoming, the rooms are clean and spacious. Best of all, they're set up in such a way that you feel like you're staying in a cozy cabin instead... More

Generally, when I visit Lake Tahoe, I am with a large family group that stays at Harrah's. I have been a guest at Harrah's at least 10 separate visits. So this review must be tempered by this fact. Anyways, this visit, only my 13 year old son and I were making the trip. I figured that paying up for the... More

We booked several rooms for a family get together and had a fantastic stay. The suites are wonderful and all of the rooms were clean and updated. Loved that we could visit and prepare meals within the suites and outdoor cooking area. The pool area is also really nice. It's a great location with just a short walk to the... More
