This was the least expensive place we could find in lake Tahoe on labor day weekend. It was clean and comfortable, the room was a little dark. No air conditioning, but it wasn't a problem. The location is great with lots of restaurants nearby. The beach across the street was not suitable for swimming when we went. Pool was not... More

My friend and I had the misfortune of stumbling across this excuse for a hotel. The room was ridiculous! Disgusting bedsheets, wafer thin walls and windows... in winter, rough mattress. They actually had a cathode ray tv, I mean, I don't care if it has a TV at all, but a cathode ray TV hahaha! Didn't know they even made... More

We stayed here for a ski trip. It is near Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows. It is conveniently located across the street from Lake Tahoe and a strip mall that has CVS and Safeway. A variety of restaurants are close by. It is reasonably price but you get what you pay for as it is an old small one-story motel... More

We stayed in the hotel for a ski trip. We went to ski at Alpine Meadow. We stayed for 3 nights. The location is excellent, it is close to Alpine Meadow and Scott Valley, we do not have to drive more than 1 hour from Reno. Safeway is across the street, and there are many restaurants within walking distance, no... More

Fantastic location - across from Lake Tahoe and near Squaw and Northstar. Walking distance to many shops and all the good restaurants in Tahoe City. Basic breakfast is also included. Rooms are a decent size but dark. Poorly lighting. Rooms also lack some basics like hair dryers - somewhat silly considering the price of hair dryers! Still would recommend to... More

Friendly environment. Good Breakfast served. Located in center of Tahoe city. Near to lake view and Homewood ski resort. I suggest It is good hotel to stay. I would like to stay same hotel If I plan to visit Lake Tahoe. Thanks, Venu

This was one of the creepiest places I've ever stayed - torn and dirty sheets and linens, filthy bathroom with moldy grout, ridiculously dim lighting - probably because everything was so dirty! UGGH! Run somewhere else
