“VERY CLEAN”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

I want to preface my review by saying that this is a CHEAP hotel. That being said, it was VERY clean and well maintained. It was old, but my room, the pool, and the grounds felt clean --- and that is the most important thing to me when I know I am not staying in a fancy hotel. This quick getaway with my husband was on the cheap, and not supposed to be fancy.

The good: Nice staff, cute breakfast nook and outdoor BBQ seating area, cute wedding area. FREE wifi, breakfast, and parking (hard to find in Tahoe!) Easy 10 minute walk to the lake, or a 10 minute walk to the casinos in the other direction. Good times.

The bad: The buildings are old and a bit outdated. Not a lot of seating in the breakfast room. If you don't get a good view from your room facing the lake, you will look out onto the backside of other cheap hotels. We got this view with our balcony. But at least there were some big pine trees as part of our view.

Overall a decent hotel. I slept well and it was nice and quiet on a Saturday summer night in Tahoe. We were able to walk to the lake and casinos. A nice stay on the cheap.

Room Tip: Ask for a room view facing the lake or trees, or you will get a bad view of the back of other cheap...

Our visit was during the July 4th holiday.The hotel had a hard time keeping up with the abundance of patrons & activity.The ice machines were empty on the holiday due to people going to the beach with coolers. Our room was not made up. The front desk was really surprised & unaware our room was missed. Although pretty clean the property & room was showing its age. The hot & cold water was reversed on the bathroom sink & missing the drain stopper. We did not have a microwave or fridge. They are by advance request. The bed was uncomfy. The breakfast was good, but needed more fresh fruit & a meat choice to go with the eggs.We weren't to happy to have to pay 3 times as much for the room for the holiday compared with the night before.The best thing was the location. It was within walking distance to the local beach & nearby casinos. A free beach admission pass was included with the stay.

Strengths: The breakfast is good, the breakfast area is minuscule. The room was spotless.
Weaknesses: The room needed major repairs. Hotel allows pets = barking dogs all night. Wifi connection sucked.

Room Tip: Don't stay here. It's not worth the money.

Hello Vicki,
On behalf on my entire staff I would like to apologize for failing to exceed your expectations. Your feedback is very important and we had no incident report from your room or we would have addressed the situation immediately. I share all reviews with my entire team so that they are aware of any problems so we can take care of them right away. We are a pet friendly hotel but we have rules and a barking dog is a big problem and when this does happen we call the owners and have them return to the room. I hope you would consider staying with us again so we can give you a superior stay. Thank you.
Sincerely,
Mike, Mgr.

For the price, and the location this hotel was great. In walking distance to both the casinos, and heavenly village and to the beach in the other direction. The lady at the front desk was very nice, and pointed us to some local spots that we wouldn't have found or tried without her recommendation. The actual hotel facility is nice, and kept well just outdated and older as are many others in the area. I would definitely stay here again.

Let me start out by saying the pictures on this site in no way effect the current state of the hotel we stayed in. Our son was getting married on June 22 and we booked this place for 1 night (June 20th) before everyone else got there. Mistake. The room was in a building across the street from the main building- next to the Gazebo used for weddings. The facility is old, musty, there is an elevator t the second floor but it was very slow. The room was small and the floor was warped. We use the ratings in trip advisor to select our hotels and restaurants. I want to know who gave this place anything over 2 stars.
Even my husband said if we had it to do over again, we would not have used this place.
On the plus side, i will say you have beach access within walking distance as well as getting into town. Easy walk either direction.

Room Tip: I don't know if the rooms in the main building are any better, but you would not have to walk ou...

Hello Maria,
I would like to apologize for failing to exceed your expectations. We have a variety of room types and had we known you were unhappy we would have addressed the situation immediately. Pretty much all the properties are dated in this area and we work really hard to keep things clean and in good order. We value your feedback and your review was shared with the entire team so that we are all on the same page. Hope you had a nice time at your son's wedding and at beautiful Lake Tahoe.

Have stayed at various hotels in Tahoe and for the price this was a great deal. The room was clean the bed was comfy, the pool area and hot tub were sparkling and the free breakfast was good, your standard fare, eggs, potatoes, sausage, waffles, cereal, and juice. Plus they gave us a coupon to spend the day at the lake on a private beach... Perfect... Will stay here again.

Person at front desk very pleasant and everything went smoothly. Room clean but very small and dated. Furniture had seen better days. Bathroom and bed very clean, so the essentials are there and that's really all you need for a night's stay. No refrigerator or microwave just pretty basic. Complimentary breakfast is average hotel fare. Great location and is close to casino's or the beach. I would stay here again if I was just traveling through but I would have to find something with a refrigerator/microwave if I wanted to stay any longer in the area.
