4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

We were in south Lake Tahoe for the weekend in August. We had a choice of very expensive, middle of the road or dirt cheap flea bag hotels. We went middle of the road and we delightfully surprised with the quality of Howard Johnson. The rooms were neat and clean if a bit dated but the hospitality of the owners was superb. I would stay there again in an instant.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

We stayed two nights at the hotel in late June 2013. This was our first trip to Lake Tahoe. The Hotel is in a busy part of the tourist area, which means there are many locations nearby for food and shopping. We have a family of six. Two of the rooms in the hotel have sleeping for six, with three doubles/queens in the room. The room was very spaciaous and we did not feel cramped. Service was very good overall. The continental breakfast was somewhat limited, but did meet our needs. It is a short walk to the beach, about 5 minutes. The pool and hot tub were good.

This motel is an old property that has not kept up. The breakfast is less than satisfying and has none of the modern offerings. It is quiet and a couple of rooms have a narrow view of the lake. unfortunately it has not kept up with the times.
