“Do not stay here!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2006

I agree with the first review. You can barely make out the driveway and the front entrance. The "inn" is hidden behind layers of snow which no one seems to shovel, ever. My friend walked into a living room with a family watching a movie, and no one seemed to notice him. He asked where he should check in, and a lady on a couch said, "right here." They were very unprofessional, but seemed nice. The room was nice and clean, but was very small and definitly not worth $150 a night. It also doesn't have that "inn," or "bed & breakfast" enviroment. It almost felt renting a room in a random stranger's house. Save your money and go somewhere else, this place is not worth it!

We spent one night at Always Inn Tahoe, and we would not recommend it to anybody. The snow was up to the roof, covering all low-level windows. Sierra Room turned out to be a converted basement without the carpet(!), just concrete floor covered with rug. "Fireplace" is actually a tiny gas stove in the corner. If we didn't make a 3 hour trip with small children, we would have turn around as soon as we've seen all of this. Inn keepers pretended no problems existed. There were two large dogs in the house, actually, in the sitting room. Breakfast was ok, if not for the dog hair in my eggs. Folks, skip this one if you can!
