Stayed here for 1 night as we were passing through on our way to Napa valley having come from Yosemite. From the outside this looks like a standard motel, but it is a cut above the rest - all of the little touches really make this place special - personal welcome notice inside the room, fresh fruit, bottled water, chocolates...

My wife and I were searching for a nice hotel to stay in with good reviews in South Lake Tahoe. We came across The Paradice Motel online and at first thought 'those reviews are too good to be true'. As we come to find out, all of the reviewers hit the nail on the head. This hotel is incredible, it's... More

We chose this place based on trip advisor and we were not disappointed! It is a small motel with relatively normal but nice rooms. However, what is special are the owners who are making a genuine effort to make you feel welcome and for your stay to be pleasurable. They offer complimentary food and water in your room, a welcome... More

Paradice Motel (near Nevada hence Para-dice) is charming for a motel. We stayed two nights and each time we returned to the modern, well-appointed room, we found surprise gifts to welcome us. Perrier at the bedside each evening, beautiful fresh fruit constantly resupplied, a towel shaped as a smiling elephant resting on our bed one evening. We loved coming back.... More

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
