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

You can't beat the location of this hotel. In the middle of shopping and several restaurants. Brew pub next door has great food and craft beer. The beach is right across the street. Like most North Shore hotels the rooms are small and dated but clean and comfortable. The weekend desk personnel are very friendly and helpful. The male manager... More

We stayed on night here..on our way to South Tahoe. This is an older motel (After all, its a historic town), and in need of updating, but the room was clean and comfortable. If it's fancy your looking for, this is not it, but the location is perfect...directly across from the lake and a beautiful lakeside walking trail (appears to... More

Parking is free, and spaces were available near our room when we arrived. The room was upstairs on the back side, so we heard no street noise. Each room in this area has a back door that faces the golf course and opens onto a common deck. Having the door open allowed us to cool off the room and enjoy... More
