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

I could not imagine that a motel could be so nice. I only stayed for one night in August 2008 but I was really impressed by their service.I think, if I am not wrong, that they even changed our towels in the evening when we were out. Nice quiet location on south lake tahoe and good price for a deluxe... More

My stay at Paradice was great! The rooms are cute, crisp and clean and the staff ads a thoughtful personal touch with many great skiing and food recommendations. It was a fun and comfortable stay - and you can't beat the proximity to the lake and the slopes at Heavenly! I will definitely return and recommend Paradice Motel to anyone... More

My husband booked this 3 day stay the day after our 22 week unborn baby died. Instead of having a sad time we had a great time. All the daily surprises left in our room, the packed lunch for us to take home, the best location, everything within walking distance, and reservations the owner made us at Edgewood restaurant for...

As soon as we arrived we loved it. Our room was spacious, beautifully decorated and super clean. Unfortunately for me I broke my arm on our first day of snowboarding, which meant a lot of time in the hotel room. And I was very glad we were staying at Paradice. That afternoon we were brought home made cookies (still warm)... More

Fantastic place to stay, would stay here over my timeshare…[-] I would recommend this place to all my friends and family! Rooms We stayed at this hotel from Dec. 31 to Jan. 5. We paid a grand total of 1033.00 for all our nights. I believe the first two nights were 348.99 and the next nights were 148.99. We booked... More

We stayed here on based on the reviews we read on this site and others. Pulling into the property, we wondered what we were getting into. It looked like a regular motel, and we worried that we were paying for location. We were pleasntly suprised to find the pearl within the shell. The room was beautifully done, with a large... More

The young couple who run this motel have to be commended on a wonderful job. The totally renovated rooms are spotless and the special treats they leave for their guests are most welcome. The location is excellent - beach, shopping, restaurants, casinos - within walking distance. It is a most comfortable place to return to after a day of sightseeing... More

At first, we were turned off by the small size of our room because of the price. But, as we spent the night and part of the day there, we came to like it more. We felt welcomed by the room - the furnishings and decor were especially chosen by the owner, Parrine. It wasn't like another chain hotel/motel. There... More
