We planned a last minute trip to Tahoe when the snow dropped and was able to book a decent deal on Hotels.com. The motel/hotel was close to the ski slopes we wanted to go (Homewood, Sugar Bowl and Diamond Peak). We got there a couple hours early and were able to check in without any problems. We had one of...

Stayed at a standard king bedroom. The location is superb and the view is great. Just needed to stay one night, so chose the most economic option. The ocean front room looked so much better. Next time I'll book that room.... Back to my room... The room was pretty small and old. Oh well, it seemed to be okay, until...... More

Comfy beds. Clean bathroom and shower. Free breakfast includes oatmeal, cereal, and muffins/bagels. The breakfast could easily be improved by adding fresh fruit. For the price (under $100/night), we will definitely stay here again. Not worth more than $100/night through.

Thanks for the kind review, that's everything we strive to be. Often times we run specials which keep the Lakeview rooms at $99/night (midweek). We look forward to seeing you again. -Dave More

Our daughters practically grew up on their beaches and played endlessly in their pools. The Ferraris really take care of their properties and they sincerely care about their patrons. We have mostly gotten the lakeview rooms because they are usually quieter than those out front. plus, you get a view of the beautiful lake. We have NEVER had a problem... More

Marlene, Having just finished our 58th summer at the Crown, I can’t even tell you how much this review means to us.

We stayed here for a weekend with our daughter. The rooms looked very similar to the website, so we were not as surprised as we might have been otherwise. This is a 50 year old property, and it looks 50 years old. The room furnishings have not been updated in a very long time, but the matresses are a good... More

Thanks for the feedback and providing a room number, it will help us take care of that heater. We are just coming into the “heater” time of year. We will check out the cooking utensils as well. I admit that the kitchen in that unit is small as was the style when our units were constructed. Dave Ferrari More

We stayed at Ferrari's lured by their low rates. We certainly found out why. Stuffed away in a dark corner facing the busy main road, a section separate from the main buildings. We were offered an upgrade for $60, but did not accept. Still, we expected to have a clean and inviting room, but didn't. Dirt everywhere in the corners... More

We appreciate the review. We were able to figure out which room this guest stayed in and I took some time to inspect the room. This room has a wood floor which we have experimented with in some of our downstairs rooms. I will freely admit that the floor was dusty behind the beds and on the side against the... More

I would just like to say that we had a great time at Ferrari's--- but what truly started off our stay on the right leg was the fantastic customer service we experienced. We were originally booked in a lake front room but had to change our dates slightly due to the catastrophic Rim Fire. We were told that the only... More

This motel caught our eye because it clearly states no pets, and that's a treasure nowadays. With so many high priced motels/hotels around Lake Tahoe, Ferrari's is a charming, clean and delightful motel that looks directly onto the lake. The bed was very comfortable and it had both soft and firm pillows, which was nice. The motel is a 60's... More
