4/2014- We were going to Tahoe for skiing the last 2 days of the season 2014, and wanted a place to stay that was budget minded, and convenient to Squaw and Alpine. Tahoe City was our choice. I checked out several properties online and this was offering the best price for TC. One casino and a hotel at South Shore... More

I actually did NOT stay at this hotel, but with friends in same town. Keep in mind if you reserve on their website or thru others like Bookings.com or Hotels.com you may have to cancel by 6pm two days ahead of time when your plans change. I got annoyed. I was not able to cancel on the hotel web site... More

We stayed here the end of October for a cycling trip and it was great! So, the hotel isn't too much to write about, but the price and location were perfect! It's a no-frills, older room in need of a remodel, but everything was clean and functioning. There is a small, free breakfast offered with coffee, fruit, and danishes. There... More

We stayed here a couple of days over the New Years holidays. The motel is centrally located, close to the center of Tahoe City. The room is basic, but functional - comfortable, clean and quiet. Staff was friendly and very helpful. We reported a non-functioning light bulb and they responded right away. We highly recommend this place.

Don't know if it was the best value in Tahoe City but it was a pretty good value at about $70+ per night in the off season of late October. The room was small for two queen beds with very little room to spare around the beds. Bathroom was also very small. Beds were comfy and room was clean and... More

We picked this motel for its location, and affordability. It is an old motel layout, but the owners have tried to update the amenities. The room was very basic, bed comfortable, amenities were as advertised, and the location was convenient to everything in Tahoe City.

The hotel is in a good location in Tahoe City across the street from Lake Tahoe and close to shops and restaurants. It is an older hotel so it the rooms are somewhat dated but they have flat screen t.v's, and the beds are comfortable. The front desk is helpful and friendly. The price is a good value off season...

Received an excellent welcome on arrival, the guy who checked us in could not have been nicer and advised us of where we could find anything and everything we needed - in the hotel and in the town.
