A motel in one of the prettiest places in the world, Lake Tahoe. We had a room on the same side of the street as the office (2 buildings, one on either side of street)
Room smelt like an ashtray, I called the desk asked why we got a smoking room, they said its a non smoking place.....I told them it smells and they did not offer a new room so I said I need a new room, none available I was told...STRIKE 1. The room was not clean, my wife was first in the shower and found hair in the shower curtain and drain..not our hair...STRIKE 2
Bedtime, the bed closest to the window had the worst mattress ever on it. Now I stay in hotels an average of 3 nights a week but this one woke me up about 3 am with a sore lower back. I had to get in the other bed with our 3 year old because it had a better mattress! (we switched beds the next night) STRIKE 3. Do I need to go on? No, but I will.....they have a pool and spa that looks like it has not been cleaned all summer. They have a wedding chapel and grass outdoor area for same (who in their right mind wants to get married at the Rodeway?) and on Saturday afternoon when we came back no parking within a block! The street is no parking and all the rest of the places are private..... I see some reviews say the building across the street has better rooms but I can not speak to that.
We never sampled the breakfast as it was gone by 8:30.....
Also, I noticed on my receipt that they changed the name to Rodeway Downtown....like there is a "downtown" South Lake Tahoe.....maybe in hopes to shed some bad reviews?
Bottom line: Skip this place. There are plenty of other places in the area.
PS, the shower heads are junk!
