It was clean, but the facilities were old. Bad service, took so much time in our check in process and the receptionist was not kindly. At night the person in the lobby was drunk and told us that they did not have extra towels or pillows. Bad experience and breakfast was terrible!

Old, dirty (as in dirty walls and the sink not cleaned), rooms not ready by 3 pm check in, housekeeper smoking in the no smoking rooms while she cleaned. Loud party in meeting room and violent domestic fight behind hotel late at night. Very disappointed.

While travelling to South Lake Tahoe we were in search for a motel which can just provide a place to sleep. But for the money they charge, it is much more than I would expect from a motel like that. Will definitely stay here next time.

Stayed here at this hotel last week with a family of four for two nights and upon arrival into the hotel one could tell that it was more on the older side. I did like that they had free packs of gum and energy bars at the welcome check in counter. That was nice. The breakfast was also a nice... More

Booked the Econo Lodge via Priceline for a last minute trip to Tahoe for Labor Day. We figured for $89 we were gonna be at a roach motel...very much not the case. The room was clean, maybe a little rundown, but for $89, it was perfectly acceptable. It was just a quick drive down the street to the casinos, which... More

If you plan on needing more than a bed for a night this might not be the spot. Location is not bad but no smoking signs are not respected by numerous tenants. Reasonably quiet and clean but not a place to stay if you are going to spend a lot of time in the room. Bed was not uncomfortable. It... More

Loved our stay with the kids at Econolodge. Great value for the money and best value in tahoe!! Really clean and really good service. Loved the room. Everything was and looked new. Would love to come back and stay again with our kids. Take my advice and take a look! Overall a 5/5

We show up and first this I noticed, it had a nice maintained lawn and gazebo. The lobby and breakfast area was nice and clean. All of my rooms were really clean... More
