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

First off, it's not all luxurious as it might sound. So, do set your expectation correct. :) Me and my partner have been a frequent customer to Green Lantern since 2007, especially for those spontaneous trips up to Lake Tahoe on a last minute urge (and the most recent trip would be Aug 2013), Green Lantern is perfect for its...

I stayed here because I was meeting another family here. I wish I would have read the reviews beforehand. The room was so dirty we were afraid to put anything down on the floor. Kids refused to sleep in the beds so we used our sleeping bags. Bathroom door was warped and wouldn't shut. Shower door just about fell off... More

The Green Lantern Inn should be condemed. It was the worst place I have ever stayed. I would not even take a shower because it was so bad. No pool or beach access that I knew about. I think the people that own or work there live in the Honeymoon Suite. The walls were so thin I could hear the... More
