I found this place after searching through Hotel.com and Orbitz, and felt the per night price was good value. I booked a room with a buddy so we could snowboard two full days at Heavenly. I really appreciated that the distance from our hotel to the Gondola and the Casinos was great. The convenience cannot be understated. Restaurants and shops... More

We had two room on the first floor of this 2-story 30-room motel, and it felt like I was sleeping right on Lake Tahoe Blvd. People (loud, drunken people) were returning all throughout the night, so or seems, thus, not allowing us to get a decent night's rest. Amenities were okay and rooms are somewhat updated and appeared to be... More

This place was great! Comfy beds, excellent price, and in an ideal location! This is my new go-to for South Lake Tahoe residing. Heating worked well and was a nice relief from the cold outside! Applebee's is right next door, fun location for happy hour!

I booked a trip for two, and did a poor job of it. Upon arrival (10pm), the front desk clerk was noticeably intoxicated and took some work to jostle in the back (I mean, seriously, I went to college, how does one get drunk and pass out by 10pm? Ladies, take note.) Now I'd be grumpy too if someone woke... More

Not worthy of a Tripadvisor sticker on the office door. Location is the ONLY plus! Older facility w/poor renovations. Broken heater & A/C, no stopper in wash bowl, TINY shower, NO closet....just hanging bar & soiled ironing board, no pool, no fitness center, plastic furniture, no coffeemaker in room, no maid service on 4th day of 4-day "promotion". You get... More

Booked the three bedroom family suite and arrived to find that the room is 10 feet from Lake Tahoe Blvd which is THE main thoroughfare through South Lake Tahoe. Heavy traffic noise throughout much of the night. Suite itself was average at best. Gaps in the front door frame allowed a narrow view into the room from the outside (nice... More

Unbeknownst to us, we ended up where we spent our honeymoon 56 years ago!!!!! How's that for coincidence. Location was very good - near shopping and casinos. Price was right for the room. Small but very clean. Lighting was not very good. Would not hesitate to stay here again because of its locality and price.

Highland Inn is one of the best motels that we have slept in when visiting the States. It was a cheap room and when we arrived, we came into the most perfect room. Very nice furniture, great king-size bed, big flat screen TV, air conditioned and a nice toilet with bath. We walked 10 minutes to a private beach for... More

I was cautiously optimistic when I read that the Highland Inn had been recently renovated and figured I'd take a chance and stay there during my friend's destination wedding. I was looking for something cheap and nice and I got both at the Highland Inn. I paid a very fair rate and got a clean room with modern upgrades, including... More

The rooms are comfy - not fancy or modern, but cozy and clean. The owner was extremely outgoing, helpful and freindly, and made us feel truly welcome. There is shopping and dining within easy walking distance. Like many older properties, they could use additional outlets for plugging in all our devices.
