    We had a last minute booking at this place and were apprehensive about it. The hopes did not rise when we pulled in at 12am in the night. But, from that point onwards, everything was excellent. The receptionist was very warm even though we woke her up so late. We got a two-room suite. It was really cozy with gas-lit... More

    We were a little worried when we drove up to the Mark Twain Lodge because it looked like an old run down motel. However we were pleasantly surprised when we entered our room. It was nicely decorated and very clean. It looks as if it had been recently renovated. The lady that checked us in was very friendly. Location wise,... More

    My wife and I decided at the last minute to make a trip to Tahoe on Valentines Day. We needed a place that also took our 2 dogs. We picked the Mark Twain and took the smaller 2 bedroom suite. It could have easily slept 6. There are 2 full size bedrooms, full kitchen/living room combo. The 2 bathrooms are... More

    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 !
