I booked a room at the Pepper Tree Inn a couple weeks ago for a Valentines Day/Anniversary/Congratulations getaway weekend for my boyfriends. I was looking at hotels all around Lake Tahoe no specifically Tahoe City. I just wanted a nice area that was close to hiking. I researched hotels for good week solid trying to get the best bang for... More

Hotel choices are few in Tahoe City! The Pepper Tree Inn offers a clean, small room with a reasonably comfortable bed. The wall heater was tough to get right. It was either too hot or too cold in the room, but once I found the sweet spot on the thermostat it stayed comfortable. I was pleasantly surprised by the breakfast... More

My friend and I stayed here for a wedding that was in town. We were originally placed in the lower portion (bottom 2 floors), which was clean but terribly outdated and the view was blocked by other businesses. The heater had issues, which kept us up all night, so we got switched to a room on the third floor. It... More

The rooms clean and comfortable. The staff is knowledgable regarding places to go and places to eat.. We enjoyed a lovely couple of days with our adut... More

We were pleasantly surprised given the reasonable cost of this hotel. Centrally located right on the main drag in the middle of town within easy walking distance of restaurants and shops. Clean room with sufficient amenities (hey, it's not a resort.) Ask for a high floor for a killer view of the lake. You won't be disappointed.

I came to the Pepper Tree Inn desperately searching for a clean room, after having a terrible experience at another local motel. Jessica at the front desk was so kind and helpful, she got us a very reasonable priced room in the tower that has a great view of Lake Tahoe! The room was quiet, clean and comfortable. Plus there...

Biggest thing for us when we stay at a hotel is cleanliness of the room. The room was nearly spotless. Great selection of TV channels. We had a room on the 6th floor with a huge jacuzzi tub. Fits 2 people with plenty of space. The tub was very relaxing and jets were fully functional. The view was amazing. Staff... More

Location to lake, marina, great restaurants, packaged store very convenient. After hours from 12:00AM-2:30AM very noisy when the bars let out. Inn service great, nice pool, room was clean, but needs a better cleaning of baseboards and ceiling fan. Wi-Fi reception was very good.

We followed other reviewers' tips, and booked a room with a view of the lake on the 6th or 7th floor. Our welcome was friendly and informative. There were three of us in our room, which had a queen and a double size bed. Space was limited but sufficient for living out of our suitcases for our one-night stay. My... More

This is a small town. Touristy, which lends to major traffic problems on the weekend. It has a great beach across the street and a great view of the lake. I was on the 5th floor. It was an our from the Casinos at Stateline which is next to South Lake Tahoe. Nice ride to the casinos. They do have... More
