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

A really nice little motel right on the main street in Tahoe City. City park with Sunday evening concerts right across the street. Restaurants are within walking distance as is the marina. The place is oldish, but well maintained with a food bes and shower. Free wifi and light contintal breakfast. I'm glad I found it. There's so much to... 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

My wife and I used ADA Room 103 for two nights in mid July 2015. The room was old, but very clean and comfortable. The ADA tub / shower and toilet all were new and up to today standards. The TV with cable worked well. We met my sister and family from New Jersey and had a great 72 hour... More

Spent 4th of July weekend here on a total random stop. Turned out to be perfectly located across the street from Common's Beach for the fireworks show. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Room was okay, but old. The walls are fairly thin. AC worked great and the hot water is almost too hot. The hot tub on the upstairs... More

Every hotel is close to everything in Tahoe City (it is small). This one is located right across the road from the lake and playground. i used the playground to do pull ups in prep for the Tough Mudder - if you're like me and need a playground nearby...The nearest restaurant is a mexican place with good food and hotel...

There was nothing wrong with this hotel. If you like 1984 decor, you are in for a treat! Adequate is about it. The breakfast was celo-wrapped danishes so not the greatest. The room was not super clean and didn't have enough towels for 4 people. Not that the towels covered much anyway. Over all, adequate but not for an extended... More

It was a last minute decision and it was a perfect decision. Any problem for late check-in (12.30 am). Free wifi. Don't expect a fancy new hotel. It's a regular hotel with nice and comfortable rooms (our case King bed size room). Green views to golf place in the first floor. Continental breakfast (it means few fruits, coffee, orange juice,...
