Stayed here the week after labor day. We arrived on a Thursday night without a reservation and got the 'last room', which I think meant 'the one we can never rent'. It was on the ground floor right next to the highway, which gets very noisy starting at about 6 am on weekdays. Coupled with the folks upstairs arising before 6 am and making lots of noise (the building and plumbing don't seem very well insulated) it was a rude awakening! The next night they moved us to an upstairs room closer to the lake (and in all fairness discounted both rooms somewhat) so overall it was a decent stay. I would agree with other reviewers that the rooms are feeling a bit tired and dated, especially for the $200-$300 a night rates they charge during high season. The bar and restaurant have great decks in the summer and a lively bar scene without being raucous. Location is very handy to Tahoe City and West Shore attractions like Emerald Bay.
