If you are thinking about staying here and this is the last place that is available, just don't go. I cannot stress how serious I am about that. Like the other reviews have mentioned, the "Holliday" in is a complete scam to lead unknowing people in to thinking that this dump is associated with the actual Holiday Inn. Here is my story: attempted to find a place to stay in North Lake Tahoe on a holiday weekend on the Friday of the weekend. Obviously, this is not idea but due to circumstance, that's what happened. The group that was going was my wife and I, another married couple, and one of our single friends. The room was reserved as being able to sleep six comfortably. When we got to the hotel we realized, with horror, our mistake. As if to confirm our fears, the guy at the front desk demanded that we pay for all three nights of our reservation up front, obviously we were more than a little pissed. As we let ourselves into the room we were hit with the overwhelming smell of mold. Although there was no mold in sight the smell was sickening. We attempted to sleep that night in beds that were little more than plywood boards, at least that's what they felt like. In addition to the less than forgiving mattresses, the beds were COVERED with some sort of hair, we were unsure if it was human or animal. The room was incredibly drafty and the furnace was a ridiculously old POS that made the room either scorchingly hot or unbearably cold. Our single friend ended up trying to sleep on a futon that was little more a couple blankets on wood slats, which was made with by the fact that several of the wood slats were broken and missing from the "futon". Needless to say, no one got much sleep the entire time there. In the morning, when we went to shower we thought that someone must have replaced the towels with sandpaper, albeit sandpaper dotted with unidentifiable stains. As if to add insult to injury, the toilet was so suspect that all of us resorted to scheduling our bathroom breaks to when we were out of the room. On the second night were we able to identify several blood stains scattered throughout the room, most notably on the furnace. I can't believe that this hotel hasn't been condemned for health and safety reasons. Let me break it down for you, if you are considering staying here, JUST DON'T. I still shudder and feel nauseated when I think of the smell in the room. I could go on and on about how awful this place is but I hope that just these few things have convinced you enough. It wasn't even a cheap option. This kind of place wouldn't even be a good deal at 20 dollars a day. Not only are you afraid of getting hepatitis but you are getting raped in the wallet as well staying at this place. I hope this place burns to the ground.
