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.

If you don't want to pay much, this might be a good choice. The beds were fine, bathroom was ok. Neither breakfast nor laundry, just a place to sleep. They have wifi. The closest to Emerald Bay you'll have for this price.

We have stayed here in August for 3 nights. Its location is good. You have almost everything you need in walking distance. There is a delicious Thai restaurant across the street ;) It is a family owned motel and these guys are totally nice and helpful. The rooms are good and the beds are comfortable (depends on visitors preferences) and... More
