Fairly priced, pleasant, clean, spacious, well-appointed and maintained rooms, enjoyable hot and cold breakfast prepared by Ivan's mom and helpers. Delightful and accommodating staff with Liliana and Cate always there to help politely with a smile. And Sam makes Gus,Ginger and I always feel so welcome. We always look forward to returning to this caring hotel.

Very nice hotel with courteous helpful front desk personnel. Walking distance less than one block to several great eating places with variety of menus. Cool night temperatures and pleasant daytime temps. A reasonably priced stay with a quiet room and better than average breakfast.

Stayed here for 8 days in total but interspersed with trips away so we tried out a few rooms! In fact we had to change rooms due to a broken toilet flush but they couldn't have been nicer about it. All the staff were very friendly and helpful apart from one man from the housekeeping staff who was rude to... More

It is difficult to find Tahoe hotels under $100, so this one fits perfectly, and includes continental breakfast. Well located, just off of 89 and I-80, near the bike path, as well at public transportation. The rooms are very noisy, esp. above, so ask for 3rd floor if you are a light sleeper.

The room was clean and functional. The bathroom was spacious and clean. The complimentary breakfast had cereals, eggs, pancakes and breads/muffins. A good night’s sleep and fulfilling breakfast got us off to a good start. We appreciated the free coffee in the lobby during the day. The staff was very friendly and helpful!! We felt welcome every time we entered... More

This was an unplanned stay and a pleasant surprise. Relaxed resort atmosphere. I learned I booked the last room that night. I was going to stay an extra day, but they were booked solid, although they didn't seem rushed or crowded. Clean and well maintained and the old style decor seems totally appropriate here. Nice pool (smallish) and hot tub... More

Very nice and pleasant motel. We had a room with a small eating area which allowed for the kids to swim and then eat in the room (Pizza) from a near by vender. Overall a very good. Easy on and of Interstate. The grand kids enjoyed the pool and hot tub.
