This is an older motel which has been remodeled. Our room had 2 bedroom with a queen bed in each room. The bathroom was large but has limited counter space and no hair dryer (so bring your own). The electric heat works well. The room was very clean and equipped with a small frig and microwave. If you make reservations... More

I normally stay in hotels on business trips. I tried the casinos but as always I found them revolting and noisy. So I looked up the motels on tripadvisor and decided to try the Paradice. It turned out to be a good choice. The location is perfect with walking distance to the village and restaurant. The motel stands out in... More

We stayed here for two nights in August, the area was packed with people going to see Elton John, so it seems we were lucky to get a room. We had a room just by the car park, not a problem , once people had a checked in they didn't really use their cars much during the evening , the... More

We are returning guest to the Paradice Motel. We know what to expect, love the location (walking distance to Casinos and beach) and management is always helpful...just ask. Although the new manager is very accommodating and took good care of us...missed the owners on the property. Cathy, we missed chatting with you and petting your friendly pets :( Hope to... More

To be honest we came here because everywhere else was full but it was a brilliant decision. We were instantly met with a smile from Marina. Having experience other hotels in the area this is by far the best, not only for friendlyness but value too. The rooms are clean and very comfortable. Staff are friendly and nothing is too... More

The best thing about this motel its location. Very convenient and close to Heavenly village, gondola and the nice beach. The host was very nice and friendly. Cons: our room didn't have an air conditioning so it was really hot. We can not open the windows because Mark Twain Lodge pool was located just under our window and it was... More

I selected this hotel/motel for my family's 4th of July vacation in Tahoe, solely based off of the Trip Advisor reviews. I have never left a negative review on any hotel, EVER! However, this is by far the worst lodging experience we have ever encountered! During our two night stay our sink was unusable. It would not drain and was... More

It is always dis concerning to receive a review that is less than excellent. We are very sorry we did not live up to your expectations as we have for so many others. Unfortunately the 4th of July weekend can be a busy time in beautiful Lake Tahoe and it can be difficult to continuously exceed the expectations of everyone.... More

My girlfriend and I stayed her for a quick 3 day, 2 night getaway. When we first pulled up at 10pm, the parking lot was vacant and we thought it may be an omen for our trip. However, we were mistaken! The owner of the motel lives downstairs and was very accommodating, even offering to grab us things from the... More

This was a great place to stay! Walking distance to the lake, shopping, and restaurants. Very cute. Great customer service! There are some things in the room that still need to be updated (our room was carpet - had iron burn in carpet), but beds were comfy! When said two nights and when we left we were given a small...

We spent two nights at the Paradice Motel, and it far surpassed our expectations. The room Was great and there we're lots of unique little touches such as a welcome message on a blackboard, chocolates etc. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
