While planning a road trip from Sacramento, I searched for hotels close to Lake Tahoe. I read reviews about this one and booked it. We arrived very late at night. The hotel was nice in appearance on the outside and was nice on the inside. The desk person was very pleasant as well. The room was very nice...we only stayed one night, but I could have stayed there much longer. I woke to a view of a bright, blue sky and large pine trees from the big window...and I got up to see that there is a stream out back as well.
The hotel was easy to find and very convenient for driving to/from Lake Tahoe. The breakfast area isn't huge, but there is plenty of seating and the hotel offered enough food like any other Holiday Inn type hotel.
No need to wonder about this hotel...for the price, location, and proximity to Tahoe, this is your best bet. I'm working on another trip to Lake Tahoe and plan to stay at this hotel again.
