Booked a 2 night stay for a room with a kitchenette. A swarm of flies, mosquitoes whatever you call it is ever present in the parking lot. The place is a motel so I did not expect cleanliness to be of any high standard. The room although clean is in real need of an update so much so that the... More

So I called and reserved 2 rooms, one with a king bed and one with two queens for Memorial Day weekend. I get there and they gave our king room away "but don't worry, this room with two twins is the same price" ... but should it be? and thanks? So I over pay, go upstairs to my room and... More

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.
