Didn't expect much since it was an older place to stay. Was surprised to find the room clean and had a nice update to it. The lady at the desk was very nice and very helpful. I had asked directions to our destination and she promptly ran out to get her son to tell us how to get there. For... More

After a nightmare encounter with roaches and dangerously squeaky floorboards at another inn, this inn/motel was a blessing. The lady who owns this establishment is amazingly hospitable and accommodating, quickly getting us a room at a competitive price for 2 nights in a room with a kitchen and a king-sized bed. Everything was comfortable and clean, no complaints about the... More

Stayed for one night and did not expect too much, based on the price and location. But was very pleasantly surprised. Room was a good size for a couple, with a comfortable king bed, ensuite and small area with a bar fridge and microwave. The woman at the counter was very friendly and gave us helpful information about where to... More

The room had 2 queen beds..comfortable, nice down covers..Little tight to get around to closet, but not too bad..The bathroom was small and average..The owner is very friendly and accommodating..Only minus was that they were fixing the streets, and they worked all night..so it was pretty noisy...

Stayed for a couple of nights over a weekend in May 2015. Had a room on the top floor which was very quiet. The beds were both big and very comfortable but the rest of the room and the bathroom was average. We had a small kitchen which was fine except that it had not been cleaned for a very... More

Free WiFi did not work for more than a few minutes at a time. Very low water pressure. Air conditioning marginal but luckily Tahoe weather was in low 80's most of the time. This would be an OK motel for $60 a night. For $120 we expect more.

My dad and I stayed here for one night to be close to the hospital when my mom unexpectedly had a medical emergency. I had read some of the reviews for this motel and others and decided to drive around and look at the ones I was interested in. This was the first one I looked at and I booked... More

The boyfriend and I booked this room about 4 hours before our planned arrival. The price was just in our budget and we were lucky to snag something for the same night. We arrived around 11:15p and we had no issues checking in. The owners (I wish I remembered their names) are the most adorable couple, and even at 11:15p,... More

The bed was comfortable, the location is excellent, but my shower had a few extra holes. At $50/night I expected worse so I'm actually pretty pleased with that. The guy working the desk was friendly and helpful and it wasn't a big deal that I boarded a half day and checked out late.
