I am a "somewhat" demanding with places that i will sleep and, by reading some reviews, i had doubts about this one, but it was no problem at all! the downstairs 2 queen bed bedroom (we were 3 plus my dog) was spacious, with a mini area with a microwave, mini-bar and a place where i could set my "puppy's...

This hotel isn't fancy, but it's a great place to stay. In the past, I've always stayed at one of the area casinos but won't ever do that again. The Cedar Inn is clean and the location is very convenient. It's a terrific value for the price and the manager, Elly, is SO nice. Best of all, the beds are... More

I stay here every summer when I visit Lake Tahoe. It is across the street from the casinos and 2 blocks from the private beach. It is also very easy to drive to any number of trail heads for a few hours of hiking. Rooms are always clean and comfortable. The same family has been running the inn since I... More

The place was nice and clean. The location was awesome and the staff is very nice and pleasant. It has the old rustic look and very cozy and relaxing. The room also includes in room coffee, microwave and fridge plus free wifi. It’s a short walk to the casinos, shops and the gondola. I would stay here again! BTW, this... More

We booked a room at this Motel and they only allow 2 night stays on the weekend, we were not able to get up to Tahoe on Friday night (due to an emergency). We contacted Alley (manager) and told her, she reported that if she rented the room for Friday night she would not charge us for both nights. Not... More

We booked two rooms- adjoining each other, one with a kitchenette which was ideal and it also had a gas fire. We were there to ski so we could cater for breakfasts and a couple of evening meals. On arrival the rooms were cold but the heating is incredibly efficient. The rooms are dated but very clean and serviced each... More

We spent Labor Day weekend in South Lake Tahoe and booked this hotel because the price was right. We were not disappointed. We stayed in room #12, which was small but adequate for our needs. It had a small fridge and microwave and coffee maker. The people who ran the hotel were friendly and courteous. The location is perfectly situated... More

Excellent location at the Lake end of Stateline, free beach pass a bonus we used for the terrific 4th of July fireworks- front row seats! Basic but clean room and bath, short on electric outlets. Pool a plus. Our room was not made up for the 2nd day, but otherwise courteous, friendly service. Walking distance to casinos, lake, shopping.

Superb location. Really nice owners. Clean and sanitary. Older property. This was a last minute reservation for me made on the same day after some plans fell through. The property is a cute old place just a couple blocks from the main drag and a short walk to the lake. Insofar as you don't go do Tahoe to stay indoors,... More

Close to the lake, two to three minutes walk to the lake. We walked to the lakeside to see the sunset just after checking. The room is cozy and clean. The facility in the room works great.Recommend for buget travelers.
