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

Pepper Tree is a clean, budget-friendly place to stay in Tahoe City. It is very convenient as it is right on the main strip of town and is a short walk to the public beach. The room was pretty small, but bed was comfortable, and the owners obviously take pride in maintaining the property. We appreciated having a larger dorm-room... More

Based on their Website, I didn't expect too much more (hotel was booked as part of a wedding block). But for the kind of money paid, overall, I certainly would like to have had a better experience. Saving grace was that the bed was comfortable. Other than that, where do I start? Due to being configured old motel style (although... More

Semi last minute reservation, was the only place I could find a room. Jessica helped me, based on conversation chose to spend a little more and get a 6th floor room vs 5th Floor. Arrived there about 1:00, reception was prompt and manager was nice - Was given a key to room 506. Hopped off the elevator to find the... More

The place is clean, its old and like others it shows it age. Our room was a little cramped but we made due (three adults and a baby). We were on the 4th floor and the view was breathtaking. Free breakfast, but they could of offered fresh fruit and the breakfast burrito's were packaged and you had to heat them... More

This hotel is one of the only ones on the North shore that is over a few stories tall. The top 2 floors give you a 5 star lake view at budget prices. The rooms are not large, but breakfast is included, saving you even more money. There are plenty of restaurants and activities within walking distance. There is a... More
