Basic accommodations in old style, park by your door motel. Friendly staff, good hot tub, clean rooms, walking distance to local restaurants and ski shops and a best value. Very basic breakfast but great coffee in the lobby. In room coffee maker was non drinkable! Lots of fresh fruit.

Every review must be taken within the class of the accommodation. This is not a Starwood, but within the budget category, it is fabulous: clean, updated, with courteous attendants. There is a hot tub and good restaurants nearby.

The room is clean. The spa is amazing. The service is wonderful. I had to mention a front desk staff named Stacey Hamilton. She gave me some advice about sledding, helped me to call to Granlibakken and Homewood to make sure if they're open when it snows heavily in Christmas holiday. When I forgot my boots in the room, she... More

Room was clean and quiet. Heating system was very quiet. This motel is within walking distance of good restaurants and sporting goods stores. Tahoe City has nice shops and convenient services and stores. Driving time to Squaw and Alpine ski areas, 10 to 15 minutes.

I happened on this place while doing business in Tahoe City. The owner was working the front desk when I arrived. All other staff was very nice and helpful. Great rates and once you have been there, return guest discount makes it even better. Right in the middle of this wonderful town, easy walks to eat and see the lake.

This is an older hotel with pretty small rooms. While clean, it was all a bit run down and extremely small by US standards. We were in town for a wedding with a lot of family members and missed having a lobby or somewhere to congregate (although many did get together for drinks at the next door bar). The beds... More

Clean, comfortable (mattress was great) older hotel in the middle of Tahoe City. Reasonably priced. We had a room to the back of the hotel that was very quiet with a balcony. We watched several geese on the greens of the golf course in the back.

This is an older property that could use updating but it has so many pluses!! The front desk staff (Tom) at check-in and another lady (sorry didn't get her name) at check-out were very friendly and welcoming as well as the one housekeeping staff that I spoke to. The room is nice (it could have used a larger shower but... More
