I booked a 7 night stay for mid-July. Temperature at the time we arrived was 82 degrees outside, The second floor room felt like 92 inside. The motel's solution was to send another fan, but it was not enough to cool the room to a comfortable temperature so we drove around for a couple of hours in the air conditioned comfort of our private automobile. While the room was clean and furnished typically for a room with a full kitchen, because it was so uncomfortable we spent alot of time trying to avoid being there. The decor was lodgey with log furnishings. There is a bbq grill, play area for kids, a nice lawn, a jacuzzi and pool, none of them spectacular. The bbq however seemed to be a popular amenity. The bed sank and was uncomfortable, the requisite fan was loud and annoying especially whilst trying to sleep. The shower seemed to be about 18-24 inches wide and I could not help banging my elbows on the door when showering. We knew the maintenance man arrived on time every morning because of the loud Harley he parked in the lot below. The outer walls are very thin. There is no daily maid service for guests staying one week or more. There was only one front desk clerk on duty during the day, and none at night. Only upside was the location that is within walking distance of the Heavenly Valley gondola, tourist shops, a brew pub and other various tourist traps. From there, the casinos in Nevada are another quarter mile walk to the east. Take the drive around the lake going counter-clockwise because it seemed much less crowded coming into King's Beach and Tahoe City. Get off on Pioneer Trail for a nice back drive to the motel.
