We visited this motel last September (2013), but when I thought today about places that really impressed us over the last months, this is one that came to mind. It was an old-style motel of the type we think is charming... well-updated, private, quiet, clean, reasonably-priced, but also friendly and helpful when needed. We walked to the lake and a... More

Very cordial & helpful motel owners/staff. They are excellent hosts. Rooms are updated, but obviously an older motel. You will get a good nights rest on excellent linens and bed. No ac, hair dryer or plug for the bathtub. Park here if you stay the night, okay with owners. Extra cost for two beds…not known until I paid the bill.... More

We were scheduled to arrive on Thursday February 13, for the long Presidents' Day holiday weekend. Unfortunately, the mid-Atlantic had more snow than Lake Tahoe, and our flght was cancelled as BWI shut down. Prior, I had been in contact with Kathy for periodic weather reports. Kathy was so understanding and accommodating. While we were unable to visit the Paradice... More

We stayed there one night and found the room very clean, comfortable and warm both in temperature and cosy feeling. The host was very welcoming and full of advice on good places to go to for dining and sightseeing. We just loved our stay there.

The owners are very helpful. The motel has 2 room options which is great for families with younger kids. We put our 3 kids in the back room - 6, 8, 9 and we had the front bedroom. It worked out great. We had to cancel our first trip because of illness and the owners were really nice about it.... More

My husband and I recently stayed here and the experience was absolutely wonderful. We came with no plans and no ideas about what to do in Lake Tahoe. The owners were so welcoming and helped us plan a number of activities that made our trip worth it. From snowmobiling to mouthwatering meals their recommendations were spot on. If you are... More

The staff at paradise motel in south lake tahoe are really amazing, they helped us with everything from ski equipment hire to dinner in our room. I would stay here again for such. Very homely feel and super clean rooms.

I am happy your month long travels brought you to Tahoe. And had a blast snowmobiling out in Christmas Valley. It is always awesome for us when our guest experience snow for the first time. Safe travels, Kathy More

Firstly the location is excellent, just a 3 minute walk from the heavenly gondola. The rooms are clean and well maintained. But the best part by far is the friendly owners who went out of their way to help us, from organizing ski rentals and tours, pointing out the best places to eat and even providing transportation. If I'm ever... More

How cool is that a 2 night stay in Tahoe turned into a 4 night! But what great memories of snowmobiling and snowboarding at Heavenly. Sorry the train to San Francisco did not work out but you can blame mother nature. Happy trails to your next destination and have a blast in Cabo. Cheers, Kathy More

During my recent stay in South Lake Tahoe my boyfriend and I stumbled across the Paradice Motel. When walking into the Motel we were instantly greeted and treated like family. I had never stayed in a place like this before, what set it apart from the others was the overall hospitality, comfort and privacy of the rooms. After a long... More

It is always nice to hear that we have done our job well and our guest take away the exact feeling of being treated like family. The restaurants and places we suggest to visit are among our favorites and enjoy sharing and always strive to go the extra mile. Thank you for your kind words it is always much appreciated.... More

Wife picked this place based on previous reviews, we were both very disappointed. Motel just like the name suggests but what you don see is it is right on a busy noisy street and across from some very undesirable apartments. We are not hard to please and try to be very understanding of small mom and pop properties. First off... More

It is always sad for us as the owners to read a review like this. We can only do our best and hope guest would take the time and give us feedback personally because it seems like there were many issues. I hope our property shows pride of ownership and we do have our Tripadvisor awards in our office but... More
