“Fresh and Friendly. We'll be back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

We had out first stay on July 11 and it was a great experience. We were looking for a nice place to stay for a good price and we found a great motel with super-friendly and helpful staff. The rooms have been updated and look great. We got a yummy suggestion for dinner and there was complementary bottled water in our room along with other amenities. Highly recommended!

This is a cool little boutique hotel. The interior design esthetic is modern and fresh, albeit in an average looking hotel building. The family that runs the hotel is friendly, hard-working and hip. Service is personal and as good as many leading metro hotels in which I've stayed. I would definitely come here again if my destination was South Lake Tahoe.

Our family spent July 3-5 at the Paradice, and it was delightful. The motel beach pass enabled us to stroll down the hill to the water and watch the amazing 4th of July pyrotechnic display. But the motel is in walking distance to all kinds of city-center shopping and entertainment, not to mention Bass Camp Pizza and a wonderful hole-in-the-wall Mexican restaurant that the owners recommended.

The owners made our stay delightful ... fresh fruit in the room, sparkling water and candy, and turn-down service at night. The towels and linens were heavenly, and the room itself was spotless with many decorative touches. Very homey!

We hope to return in the fall to see the salmon spawn ... and you know where we'll book a reservation: where the innkeepers are full of smiles, generous and fun advice, and down-home hospitality.

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!
