Actually, one star is probably a bit mean...you get what you pay for...and it was very cheap!! On the positive side, the guy at the front desk was friendly, and the lavatory paper was strong, yet soft. There we go. The room, the shower cubicle, the basin, the lavatory were all broken and chipped, and, you know, all had that... More

Great place for the price. Owner was great from the moment we checked in. Within walking distance to Heavenly's gondola. Our room was clean and the heater worked great. Decent continental breakfast in the morning. We will definitely be back for another stay.

My girlfriends and I were looking for a clean and inexpensive place to stay in South Lake Tahoe during a weekend snowboarding trip. I read most (if not all) of the reviews on this place and gathered that although the place was of low-to-average quality, the management (maybe they're the owners?) are nice and care about their guests' experience. Rather... More

Make your own conclusion from this statement, unless this hotel has been updated in the last year spend the extra money and find a nice place for you and your family, any positive comments are suspicious and i feel faults. I have nothing good to say concerning this location.

I stayed at this hotel for one night. It is very conviniently located a couple blocks away from the Sateline and from the casinos in Nevada. It is simple, but resonably priced, very clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly, although I only interacted with them for basic stuff. The only down side of it is their breakfast. Yes, it...

We stayed here on Saturday night for $139--better than any other rate in town for the date. It was the Lady Gaga concert and everything was sold out!! The best part about this place is it is close to Harvey's Outdoor Stage--within walking distance. Other than location, the place is a little bit of a rundown motel. It's nothing fancy... More

Booked a one night stay at the Green Lantern Inn in Tahoe because it was one of the few locations that would allow for a one night stay during a busy weekend with youth tournaments going on. For $60, you get a clean no frills room. People who assign bad reviews to this place are crazy to expect more for... More

1. The female receptionist on May 25, 2014 was rude. HOW? When we walk in there, try to check in. She was helping another person so we waited in line. When we saw the man walk out, we tried to reach her to check in. But she just said: let me finish with the earlier customer. For no reason, we... More

We had a leaky roof, and our rooms power went out 4 times. We politely asked for a new room on our second night, and a discount on the last night. He moved us, but refused to give us a discount, responding with "I don't take complaints well." If you can help it, never come within 100ft of this place.

I have stayed in literally hundreds of hotels, motels, B&Bs, guest houses and inns. This is the THIRD worst!!!!! The accommodation has not benefited from any significant investment for many years. The general appearance is of a squalid, rundown motel in a poor state of repair. Some of the electrical fittings in the room were dangerous. There were numerous lose... More
