You could easily walk past Mother Nature's Inn on the street and not realize that there is a hotel here, as the rooms are in the back of a furniture store. Nonetheless, we enjoyed our stay here and found that the somewhat out-of-the-way location really helped to keep things quiet and peaceful. We brought our dog with us and were... More

When we arrived the women gave us our key. When we went to our room there was a naked man inside, apparently they have our room away. The women was very unapologetic and said, "What do you want me to do about it?". We were left with no room for the night even though we made our reservations months in... More

Attending conference at nearby resort. Resort full. I just needed bed and shower. This room better than I expected. Decor was a little different to me; which was a plus. Clean in appearance. Light wear visible in carpet. Had a short sharp noise - source unknown -which woke me. I think it was another guest operating something outside. One night,... More

Stayed at Mother Nature's Inn last September which is the start of Tahoe's slow season, but awesome weather in my opinion. Rustic cabin furniture, small refrigerator, TV, full bath. All you need. Walk across the street to Lake Tahoe. Walk to many restaurants and shops. Perfect place for an individual or couple to stay. We go to Tahoe often in... More

We were here during the off season so had no trouble booking the day-of-arrival for 2 nights (Friday and Saturday). It is in the perfect location to walk everywhere in Tahoe City, the west side of the Lake. We checked in at the Mother's Nature Store and were greeted by a very friendly lady. The store closes at 5, but... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night on our way from the Midwest to the West Coast. We loved being able to walk across the street and sit in the park, enjoying the view of Lake Tahoe, and taking a walk on the trail just below that park. We had a great dinner at Hacienda, overlooking the lake,... More

This place is clean and comfortable and really loved by the owners. The only issue is the paper thin walls. It's an old quaint place where the thin walls will always be the same. If you are lucky like we were it will be annoying at most. The owners take really good care of this place and even the pet... More

Pros: Crazy close to everything. Amazingly wonderful warm and accommodating staff from check-in to check-out. Well priced even on the weekends. Comfy beds. Mini fridge, coffee maker hair dryer, iron supplied. Cozy and quaint decor. Pet friendly. Cons: Walls are a little on the thin side. I didnt want to even mention the small detail, but worth mentioning if this... More

The first thing I want to praise about this little hotel is the kindness and availability of the owner, who was able to accommodate our last minute changes not once, but twice, with ease and no penalties. The place is cozy and warm: our room (#10) had a lovely mountain-style decor and was spotless. The room also had a little... More

I scheduled my trip to Tahoe the day before I left, literally. As I was going for 9 days no place had an opening for all nine days, except here. When I called to make the reservation they wanted payment up front. Another red flag. It was reasonably priced, third red flag. I made the reservation and paid up front... More
