3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012

Great deal, great staff, I've stayed here more than three times, and every time the room was very clean! I'm headed back today, so what does that tell you? As far as FL beachaholic's review I think he mixed up motels (maybe he's an alcoholic as well)

For our trip to Lake Tahoe, we found a nice cozy clean place for a cheap rate. We did not find anything less expensive this place. Room with one queen bed was adequate for the price we paid. The money we saved, we used to go sking and take the cruise on the lake, which were both near the motel.

The smell of authentic Indian Cuisine was pleasant as me and my friend checked in on this Friday night to start off a weekend trip for our first time in South Lake Tahoe. It was cheap, only 40 bucks a night which of course will only get you the bread and butter hotel room, however it was the definitive reason we were able to make this trip, so I am thankful for that. The attendants were very personable and responded to our room requests curtly. There was coffee in the morning and it seemed that most rooms were full - a good sign. It was irritating however that the pillows were maxi-pad thin, like those airplane pillows, and I used my personal blanket as the pillow of choice at night. The rooms were not necessarily clean - there were dirty tiles and I tip-toed in and out of the shower. I never walked on the carpet without socks on. My friend slept in his clothes. Despite these issues of cleanliness, remember it was only 40 bucks and that's pretty darn cheap. If your on a budget like me and my friend in our mid-twenties are, then its a comparable place to crash after a day on the slopes or a long night at a blackjack table. It was a long night for us, snowing a foot+ the first night there. 3 stars.

Room Tip: Room 19's door sticks...don't worry, it's not you key, its the door. Oh, and so does the...

Clean room. Friendly staff. Close to Heavenly and the casinos. AND there's a brewery/restaurant right next door so you can stumble home after some good grub without risking a DUI! Hope they fix the spa, tho', could use it after a long day on the mountain.

Everything worked beside the spa, room was clean and had everything we needed. 5 mins to Heavenly

Room Tip: do not take 36 or 37 which have doors almost on the main road.

Really good location. Sits between Sierra at Tahoe and Heavenly. Good place to kick your feet up, relax after a crazy day of boarding. And close enough to take advantage of the Casino buffets.
