This is an older hotel for sure but it was very clean, staff was exceptionally helpful and accommodating ( we did not have reservations like we usually do, but because it was hailing we just dropped in). Room was huge with a big window overlooking Topaz Lake. We even got a discount for food and gifts at the Casino next... More

No service offered when could see my difficulties. Advertised breakfast was sugar in every form. So-called eggs were hard boiled, only. Only two tables in breakfast room, which were filled... More

Room on 3rd floor was nice quiet except the morning doves, which we liked and the quails running around the property. Morning free breakfast was late, it appeared the on-duty person was a bit overwhelmed. The sitting area had just two tables and there were, including we 2 about >20 guests. Coffee was late out but finally by 0715 everything... More

For the money keep going to the next city it is only 19 miles and get a room there. There are a lot more place to stay that would be better than this motel. Very little to offer for breakfast and when asking what was a place close to eat the manager was rude.

Best Western reserved this room based on giving me inaccurate information. I tried to cancel 90 minutes later and they wouldn't refund all my money. Please do me a favor and do not stay at this hotel. We have to stand up against greedy people.

Don't go by the directions as they are wrong on the website. directions could have said that they are located 20 miles after the town of Gardnerville, NV. Also, if you have any discounts or cerdits, make sure that you check them out before you pay the bill. I had a discount from Best Western and they forgot to put... More

We visited this hotel last. It is an nice and clean hotel with a very friendly manager. Not only the hotel is perfect, also the location, near Yosemite and Lake Tahoe. In the morning you can have breakfast at the sunny porch. We enjoyed or stay very much and we will visit this hotel definitely again in the future.
