“Great stay for a family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Stayed here over Thanksgiving. The place was very comfortable and homey. It was very nice having a separate room for the kids and the kitchenette for meals. That saves a lot with a family of four. Will be staying here again. My biggest complaint would be the shower. This would be the cheapest update to do by simply installing an "S" shower arm to raise the height and then add a better shower head.

Good location off the road away from the congestion of S. Lake Tahoe. Only 15 minutes to Emerald Bay. Nice grounds: lawn and pool. Large room. Tiny bathroom with dated fixtures; could use more towel bars. Suited our purpose.

This looks like a basic 50s roadside motel, but we liked it! We have stayed here several times and the price is reasonable for what you get. All the rooms are a good size with a separate kitchen and living room area. They have not been updated in quite a while and are pretty 70s looking with the stand alone metal fireplaces, but they are clean and quaint. I would suggest bringing your own wood in the colder months, if you want a fire in the room, as the wood provided is often very green and refuses to burn. The service is not the best and the first few times we stayed, we did not realize there were walking trails so close, since no one mentioned them. For a good size room at a reasonable price, its tough to beat this motel.

My husband and I have stayed here twice and will absolutely be back. We only live 2 hours away, but its a great way to escape the Sacramento valley heat. We love highway 89 which is where the motel is situated, not far from restaurants. There is a bicycle rental place right next door. This old fashioned motel simply can't be beat. The price is right..$89. We requested the same room we had last year and management accommodated us. It has 2 queen beds, plenty of windows that open, very convenient (and safe ) parking, the room has a small refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and wall mounted TV-with a remote that works. The rooms are old, the window coverings need replacing. The bed linens and towels are fresh and clean. The grounds are beautiful..the lawn directly in front pf the rooms is beautiful. Picnic tables and a couple of BBQs are available. The pool area is clean and the pool is very inviting. Each time we have stayed there, we felt as though we were the only guests. They have a hot tub, but yesterday management advised me not to go in as it seemed someone didn't toilet (#1) a toddler so they wanted to clean the spa without just dumping a bunch of chlorine in. I appreciated his honesty.

My Antique Car Club attends the Tallac Historic Site, Great Gatsby Festival (2 miles away, near Camp Richardson) every year on the second weekend of August. We have had up to eight couples and kids stay here for the weekend and never had a complaint (other than Kurt should answer the phonefaster!!!) from any one.

Stay here and relax from the hustle and bustle of the Casinos and noise & traffic of South Tahoe Blvd. I highly recommend the Lazy S!!t

Room Tip: Stay in the 'back' of the motel.

If you want top-notch hotels with concierges, then this place isn't for you. But if you want a friendly, awesome old-time 50's style resort vacation, lay your towel on a lounger, grab some lemonade, and enjoy this rustic place. A huge lawn surrounds the pool area, and barbecues can accomodate family reunions. The location nestles in the pines, and is a walking trail from the beach. It is also a few miles from the clubs, and quite near excellent hiking, bicycling areas, as well as several smaller lakes. GREAT fun for families and kids, with bbq pits and tables outside the pool/hot tub area. Nice for family fun, or for sipping late-night lattes under the stars! We come back every year and create new memories each time. I already want to go back!

Room Tip: The kitchenettes are tiny, as is the kitchen sinks. The cottages house a king and twin bed, plus a p...
