This hotel is convenient. It is located across the street from the beach and is within walking distance to some of the best restaurants in town. We chose this hotel because we decided at the last minute to take a vacation on the 4th of July and this was the only hotel that had rooms left in downtown Tahoe City. And since they were the only hotel with rooms left and the prices were still relatively cheap, we were expecting a dive for a hotel. We were pleasantly surprised. It was clean, cozy, and quaint. There are a few things that we did not care for though...
The window coverings were cheap blinds with really thin (cheap) curtains that were so light weight that they used yarn as ties to pull them back. This meant that however light it was outside is how light it was inside. There was a solution though, you can put a blanket over the window. The window on the other side of the room was worse. Technically, it was the bathroom window so it was high, small and glazed so they did not have any curtains at all. However, since the sun came up on that side of the building, at 5:30/6:00 in the morning, our room was very bright really early. Again, we were able to stuff the bed pillows in the window for the remainder of our stay and it worked nicely. The only other issue was Friday night. Because the hotel is located right next to something that was playing music, it was a little noisy. Saturday night was not an issue. However, there is a wall unit air conditioner in the window that covered up the noise relatively nicely. So there are solutions to the issues, but we would have preferred to pay a little more to get a room that did not have these issues. If this hotel was the only option for future trips, we would probably do it again but be prepared to deal with the issues a little better.
