“A short nice stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

We arrived early afternoon and were given a room directly which was nice of the guy at reception. Relaxed by the pool and left very early the next day. Kindly they even gave us some take away breakfast at 5am. English guy at the reception was very nice.

Too far to walk to any activity. Had to drive and then find parking. As to the rooms, they were tiny. Not much space to open two suite cases. Could deal with that....but no coffee pot, or frig in rooms as well as a hair dryer! Tv was ok but older and small. This was not cheap! We saw rooms at the same price but included breakfast. Shouldn't always book in advanced. Worst Motel 6 we have stayed in.

Room Tip: Drive an additional 1 or 2 miles closer to the strip. Many others to choose from.

Facility looked nice, close enough to be able to get to everything but still be away from it all. They are small rooms but we never planed on spending a lot of time in the hotel. Toilets were loud but they flushed. Pet friendly. Staff was very friendly. They do charge for wi-fi. No breakfast but they offer a coupon for Deny's up the street. Good stop.

Room Tip: Had a back side room and could not hear traffic from the road, also a walking trail is back there wh...

Stayed here for 5 days again this summer. Room was freshly painted,
and carpets were being cleaned while I was there. Pet-friendly.
WiFi was better A good budget choice.
. Rooms in back look out onto a bike path
with a little bridge over the Upper Truckee River. Photo was
taken from footpath near this bridge, 3 minute walk from motel.

We were shattered and wanted somewhere quick . Was very basic but clean small room. Fine for one night stay. Close to all amenities even had an outside small pool. Able to park directly outside room on ground level.

Room Tip: All pretty much the same on two levels but can park directly outside rooms on ground level

I have stayed here several times in last 20 years. Clean, cheap, great value. I have become a little more cautious of budget motels in recent years and this one has always been fine. Rooms in back look out onto a marsh and willow grove facing Lake Tahoe which is not visible in the distance, with a bike path and bridge over branch of upper Truckee River at edge of property.
Cell reception better outside at west end of property, wifi in rooms weak.

My partner and I stayed here for three nights on an Xmas Ski trip. I've stayed at lots of Motel 6's, & this was a good one. Pretty convenient to Heavenly, & all the major stuff, and the staff was pretty friendly, even working with us to move us to a different room after our first night to try & boost the Wi-Fi signal. Also they refunded me the $2.99 per night fee since the Wi-Fi was NOT up to par. All in all, pretty good in a pinch, & reasonable, but where M6 excels is in being TRULY pet-friendly! Cindy at the front desk was super-sweet & gave us a bag of doggy treats upon check out before the long snowy drive back to San Francisco. I applaud M6 for being TRULY pet-friendly, but please -- fix the Wi-Fi issue!
