“Only needs blackout curtains.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

So I have stayed at this motel two times so far and I have been nothing but pleased. I am definitely a veteran of the South Lake Tahoe/Stateline hotels and I have never experienced such a level of friendliness and customer service anywhere except here. If you need an amenity, all you have to do is ask. The staff is professional and friendly and reminds me of the mom and pop hotels and motels that I used to stay at while traveling Europe.

The only thing I think could be improved upon is the windowdressing. If they simply put blackout curtains in front of their windows, it would be perfect. Other than that I would highly recommend this motel to anyone who wants a great experience for a great price.

We spent the memorial weekend at Paradice Motel, and this was the second time we stayed there. The hotel is very conveniently located, with most things within walking distance. The rooms were not quite new, and the furniture was so so, but the service is top notch. I enjoyed the conversation with the owner, who gave me very helpful advice regarding activities. She even tried to remember what car we were driving, so that she could tell when we left the room so that she could arrange for clean up accordingly, without interrupting. A lovely place, and we will go again.

Staying at Paradice was a very pleasant surprise for us. I usually expect motels to be bare minimum sleep over joints, in which you minimise your time as much as possible. This place was different. It felt very comfortable and Kathy was the most hospitable and welcoming motel manager I have ever come across. She was genuinely interested in ensuring we had a great experience, she was engaging, she was informative and she was always able to help. We will definitely be going back to South Lake Tahoe and we will be staying here again for sure. Keep it up Kathy!

My daughter and I stayed at the Paradice Hotel for 1 night over Memorial Weekend. The manager was wonderful. She even managed to get us reservations for dinner that night at a wonderful italian restaurant in town. The room was very clean and appealing. The bed was so comfortable. The room was small, but not cramped.

We very much enjoyed our stay and will definitely return.

Glad your daughter was able to join you for what turned out to be a mother daughter weekend. Best of luck in NYC to her as she starts school this year. It was a pleasure having you stay with us. Mahalo, Kathy

Wow, the reviews were right. Kathy and Uwe were so great! While this place is not luxurious, it is made wonderful by the owners' meticulous care of it's patrons. Clean, and a very close walk to the beaches, casinos, restaurants, etc. Kathy made us reservations for a sunset dinner at Edgewood which was amazing. She also offered excellent advice on where to eat and what to do. This place is an amazing find for the price (especially over a holiday weekend).

Overall, it is a great motel. It is clean, convenient to beach and main street. Furthermore, what make it stand out is the host, who is kind, informative and warm-hearted. She tried her best to make us feel being home.

was here with my daddy and mommy for my graduation trip. this cozy, beautiful and warm place is owned by a wonderful family (kathy and her hubby and her son&daughter and her dogs). they are so welcoming, and are always there and ready to help, to give advice to the travelers who have no idea what to do in the area. you can just tell from the details of decoration, the books and everything that they have put a lot of efforts to make sure everyone who stays with them to have a wonderful experience. i highly recommend this hotel, for couple/family/friends to visit.
