We pulled off the road at the first older motel we saw as we did not want to pay the high rates in South Lake Tahoe after having had to cancel a reservation at an awful place in Kyburz. The room we got here was large and clean with a decent bed, couch, large TV, great fridge, microwave, and a... More

With no reservations in August, I found this.vacancy. Frankly, it was an older motel and I was expecting the worst for the price. We had a pleasant stay. They had a GIANT high def TV and cable, a refrigerator, organic complimentary toiletries, new fluffy towels, immediate hot water, a convenient location, clean rooms, and a bargain price. Certainly not new... More

We decided on a last-minute trip to south lake tahoe late last week and the other places we've stayed were booked (July weekend!) We found a room at the High Country Lodge and it worked out well - convenient to the trails we wanted to visit, and the staff were friendly and helpful. It's a basic older motel but our... More

The lodge owner mis-quoted me and I did not have my internet print out to argue my price. Now, I just got home and have realized I WAS charged $50 too much. However, that day I was tired from driving and didn't feel like listening to the owner speak to me like I was a 5 year-old child. So, I... More
