I have used Tripadvisor for many of my travels and nearly every time it has been accurate in the hotel rating - until now. I would not rate this over a 3. The carpet was worn, there is no air conditioning (they did supply a fan - bit for only one room of a two bedroom), the hot water took... More

Thurman34, Owner/Manager at Paradice Motel, responded to this review

We are very sorry to hear that this guest did not have as positive an experience as many of our previous reviewers. We had just finished removing our old behemoth of a water heater and installing a newer, more efficient one just days before and unfortunately there were still some kinks we needed to work out. We have since fixed... More

My wife found this hotel with an online search and we booked about two weeks in advance. Great services - owners were there the whole time we were. There was a personalized note in our room welcoming us along with a fruit basket. I needed more towels at about 10:30 at night and Perrine herself got them for me. To... More

As others reviewers have mentioned, the Paradice Motel is a great place to stay. We stayed in the end of June for two nights and loved the extra things they do to make you feel welcome. We received very good service, the room was clean and comfortable, the fruit, chocolates and water were a very nice touch. Both Perrine and... More

Arriving in Tahoe we weren't sure what to expect at the Paradice Motel. The Paradice is perfect in every way. Upon check in you are made to feel very welcome. If you are looking for the Marriott or Hyatt, this isn't for you, if you are looking for a place that has outstanding customer service, extremely friendly staff, clean rooms... More

Our trip to Paradice sounds like others trips. Perrine was working when we arrived she was very helpful with what we should see, do, eat. The room was a single king with bath which was very clean nice decorations. They had a welcome note for us in room and fresh fruit, chocolates and perrier water. They also provided us with... More

We really enjoyed the kind hospitality of Jason & Perrine at Paradice Motel. We were lucky enough to reserve a room with only 1 week notice near Presidents Weekend. Our friends opted to stay at a nearby casino & I wasn't interested in that - thank goodness I went with the Trip Advisor recommendation. Upon our late night arrival, we... More

We have just returned from a great trip to Heavenly and a fabulous stay at the Paradice Motel. The 2-room suite that we stayed in was so perfect for us. The 3 kids shared the back bedroom which left the front bedroom and bathroom for us once they were asleep. There were so many lovely extras that I want to... More

We picked this motel because of its location near the Heavenly Valley gondola and because of the unusually good reviews on Tripadvisor. The rooms are standard motel rooms, perhaps even on the small side, but the owners go way out of their way to make a stay there special. We were at Tahoe for a midweek stay, when they were... More

Completely agree with comments of Foovius below. If you are going to S Lake Tahoe, the location cannot be beat. You can walk to everything in town as well as the ski gondolas and beach. Yet since the hotel is just off the main street, there is no traffic noise. It is an older motel, but it has been wonderfully... More

Our family of four had a really awesome experience there--I mean truly exceptional, beyond expectations, stay there again in a heartbeat kind of experience. Yeah, the bones are those of an old 50's motel--that's no surprise. Paradice doesn't disguise what it was. But the great looking couple running the place (couldn't help myself--my wife always notices me noticing, but she... More
