The Matterhorn Motel was nice if you plan to go to South Lake Tahoe and do outdoor activities, is a few miles away from the main street,but the staff are very friendly, and they try their best to fulfill your needs. The rooms are clean, they have a nice TV with cable, new beds, parking right outside your room, they... More

For this class of establishment (budget motel), the Matterhorn does a great job. The proprietors are a very sweet, hard working family who helped us late at night when we needed to change motels fast. Clean and comfortable, central. Thank you!

I am looking at other reviews who talk about nice rooms and clean location... well I guess we were not lucky... Our room was tiny, not very clean and there was a musty smell to it. The way the room was setup was terrible (you had to jump over the bed to get access to the fridge and microwave). The... More

Exceptional customer service; got free room upgrade; asked for coffee maker and iron -- got both delivered to the room within 2 minutes. There is no AC in the rooms but it was rather cold than hot in the room so it is not a problem.

Rooms were clean enough and warm, but eg the jacuzzi was broken and the overall look of the place is quite dated. However, I'd you're on a tight budget, it's an ok choice.

Although low on the frills, this is a lovely little motel in South Lake Tahoe. Exceptionally clean, and extraordinary service (friendly and helpful!) from the mother and son who run it. Bed was comfortable, bathroom was clean, etc. Everything is definitely a bit dated, but it doesn't smell, everything works (tv, lights, hot tub, etc.), and you can't beat the... More

When we entered the room my boyfriend thought it smelled like cigarettes even though we requested a non smoking room. They sheets were not clean, we weren't sure that they changed before we got there. The carpet was very dirty and stained and I did not want to walk around without my socks. The shower was very small and the... More

Super-clean and comfortable room, especially for the price. Jacuzzi(!) in the room, along with a microwave and fridge. The clerk welcomed us cheerfully, even though we arrived very late (we'd called to let him know). Gave us coupons for a local breakfast spot. I'd return here in a heartbeat.

I stayed with my wife. The room was clean and comfortable. It had WiFi and a decent TV. The room was well worth it for the price.
