    As per budget the hotel was good. Clean and nice to stay. There were many places for eating around. One Indian restaurant just across the road. Lake is 2 mins walk from the hotel. Overall good experience in Hotel.

    The motel is nicely located, in a short walking distance from the lake. The room was comfortable and clean and had everything we needed. The motel has a laundry machine as well and a nice balcony. The service was really good as well, the owner...More

    In South Lake Tahoe you don't get what you pay for. This place is a good example. A Saturday night in late August cost us more than $140 at the Budget Inn, but that is hardly an issue for the hotel. It is just expensive...More

    Hi we are a group of three and am wondering if there are still beds available from 12/30 - 1/2 or 12/29 - 1/1 (3 nights). We are going from San Jose. Is there any public transportation to your place? If not and if we need to drive, do we need snow chains at that time? And is there a fee for parking? Also would like to go skiing at Sierra at Tahoe. Is there any shuttle goes from your place to there? How does that work? Also we are wondering if there's a bundle package for staying at the cabin and skiing. Sorry to throw a bunch of questions. Thank you for your patience and hope to hear from you soon! Thanks, Lillian
