We really liked this hotel. It is very charming and most pet-friendly (especially dogs it would seem as do toys were actually in the room!) The room was very woodsy, we had a second floor location so no sounds from other guests. The bed was very comfortable, the room was clean and yes, there was a faint odor of pet-cleaning product, but we were greatful they took us and our cats in with no problem. Very friendly staff and a real welcome after a 10 hour drive. It is close to some great restaurants and is an affordable. We arrived too late to enjoy the pool or hot tub, but all in all a place to return to when spending a few days in Lake Tahoe, especially if you have dogs!
