We stayed here 3 nights during February while we were doing some skiing around the Tahoe area. Overall, my wife and I were very happy with our stay.
The service was great. The owner was a very nice lady and always prompt and courteous to help us. The provided free breakfast does not have a huge selection, but it was all very good and fresh and the area kept clean. The breakfast included waffles (cooked fresh on a waffle iron by the owner), hard boiled eggs, toast, several types of cereal, some fresh fruits, orange juice, milk, and coffee. There isn't anywhere to eat in the small lobby though, so you do have to take it back to your room to eat, but they do give you a tray to carry it on.
The inn itself seems to be in good condition. Our room seems to have been recently painted and somewhat updated in decor. It wasn't a super fancy job, but for a value motel it is nice when they keep things looking good. The room was clean and had a working mini fridge and microwave. There was one of the old fat type TVs in the room, but it did work the few times we watched it. The free WiFi worked fine our entire stay. The heater also kept the room comfortable during the chilly Feb nights. The bed was decent and the sheets all appeared clean.
The only negative thing was that the walls seem to be pretty thin. We could easily hear the two guys in the next room talking. One of them was the guy who needs to learn what an "inside voice" is and we could clearly hear everything he said. The other seemed to talk in a normal voice and you could hear him talking, but it sounded muffled yet still annoying when you're trying to go to sleep. I had to play some white noise tracks on my laptop to drown them out at night. If you're a light sleeper this could be a problem unless you come prepared.
The bottom line is I think this was a good value motel. It doesn't have a lot of amenities and isn't that fancy, but it should provide a decent place to sleep at a reasonable price.
