“Good Deal Good Location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Right across the street from Heidi's Restaurant for the most amazing breakfast!! This is the place to stay if you don't want to spend a lot of money on a hotel! Who wants to sit inside a hotel room in Lake Tahoe anyway?
Outstanding location being right across the street from the lake. You can walk to restaurants and shopping. Right off Hwy 50 making it easy access to all the Casino's as well.

Great place to stay in Tahoe. The room was nice, the location was great. Can even take a bus to the casinos (NO DUI's) The lake is across the street. You can park your car and use public transportation. Most of our time was spent out side, either the lake or shopping or the casino's. Why pay $285.00 for a room your not going to stay in except to sleep. Plus they just finished remodeling the rooms when I got there. 6/15/2013 Nice people run the motel as well....

This was the only accommodation that I will rate unsatisfactory on a five week road trip of the Pacific NW. My husband and I stayed in 22 different hotels/vacation rentals on our trip. This hotel was the only one that did not honor the price quoted when I made the reservation 6 months in advance. The room was ok, but not worth the $95 a night the proprietors wanted to charge us.

This hotel was so gross!! First off the smell is horrible! Then if you are like me you will spend 20 minutes looking for blood splats from the past visitors ! We paid 143.00 for one night , everyone was booked so it was our only hope. I would never stay there again . So after going to bed I slept on top of my towel!! I woke up to find the dead Bolt unlocked the chair that was pushed against the wall was mobbed to the middle of the room right in front of the bed. The heater vent on the wall was taken off and this was so creepy!we check out ASAP and I wanted to talk to Somone and there was only a drop box for the key office locked !
