We just checked out tbis morning. This is an old but homey inn. Small but close walk to everything. The owner is really nice. We will come again.

This used to be a decent budget place to stay with a good location. Now it is extremely run down and not worth any price. Here is a list of the current features:
* Dripping Sink
* Dripping Shower that came apart and shot water every where when turned on.
* Broken heater that would not stay lit.
* No Phone
* No Clock
* Drapes falling off the rod
* Very dirty - smelled bad with dust and dirt everywhere - sinus problems.
* Mattress worn with a canyon on one side of it. Look under the mattress it has plywood in an effort to smooth out the cavernous depression.
* Sheets were old and pillows were flat.
* God-awful decor with mis-matched wallpaper peeling off the walls
* No shampoo
* Old crusty towels
* Baseboards in bathroom rotting off of the walls
* Vanity cabinets need refinishing

this "hotel" was simply disgusting!!!
we feared for our health on entering our rooms!!
to protect traveling souls from this soul destroying revolting shack!!!
we have travelled far and wide throughout the usa but this dark grim establishment would have provided us with foreign bodies that we didnt arrive with!!!
this puts the hoe in tahoe!!! (otherwise a stunning area of beautiful scenery)
if you value your life and that of your children run like hell!!!(sleep in your suv/bike anywhere but here!!!!
have you ever seen the film psycho??you will know what to expect if you ever enter this bates motel!!!!
it should be shut down by the californian overlords to protect the other wonderful hoteliers from the elizabeth sludge hell-tel !!!!

Tahoe Experience
We just completed our vacation in South Lake Tahoe area.
Fortunately we found Elizabeth Lodge through one of our
friend who regularly visite Tahoe and always stay in this Motel.
Daily rate was unbeatable for the well furnished and clean
room with most courteous wellcome. Worth to get enough out
of money spent. Always recommend to stay there well in budget
and enjoy more in other activities.

  • Liked — Neat and Clean well furnished room
  • Disliked — No airconditioner

I was staying at the Elizabeth Lodge for a wedding I was DJing in mid August. When we arrived after a 9 hour drive the room was filthy! The shower leaked and there was mold in the shower. The bathroom didn't have a doorknob and my wife got stuck in there when she closed the door. We asked for a room with a fridge so we could store food and snacks and when we arrived the lady at the counter said the fridge room was booked but she could give me ice in a bag. They didn't even have ice buckets! She lied to another guest that was in our party saying that I requested a smoking room and that she wouldn't give our money back. The bed only had 3 legs. This place is a dump and I would never stay there. I was ready to sleep in my SUV when the hotel next door luckily had an opening. Definitely would never recommend this place to anybody. Gross.

Visited there in 1997 when I got married, and we have always made an effort to visit south Lake Tahoe practicaly every year. Each time we always stay at Elizabeth Lodge. For someone on a budget, the rates are cheap enough. You get what you pay for!
