My husband and I was here for the Memorial day weekend. We checked for hotels online and almost everything was too expensive or had no vaccancy. Even after reading all the negative comments in Yelp, we decided to go for this for a one night stay. The only plus here is the location and the friendly front desk staff. After... More

As soon as we walked in we noticed a lot. The towels in our bathroom were still wet from God knows what. I assumed there was a towel rack above the sink due to the nail holes and peeled off paint but no towel rack. I looked under the bed and trash everywhere. The heater didn't work (We went in... More

We booked this hotel, for a one night stay, on Hotwire because it was listed as a 2 star property with a 65% approval rating! Outrageous!! The place is disgusting, there is no other way to describe it. The room had so many flaws, the bathroom was dirty, the curtains were falling off the rod, there was a rack that... More

First off.. Don't do it. Save your money and sleep in your car if you're that desperate. The door to our room was wide open, the shower head wasn't attached to anything, there were multiple holes in the walls, and the sheets probably hadn't been cleaned in weeks. I've never been more disgusted by a room. I wasn't expecting it... More

Ok ok.. My first impression was crap! I really blew it, but actually it was bearable! The staff was great and very courteous! The place itself needs to be mowed over for something completely new, but Tahoe never completed the rejuvenation project they started many years ago. So I have to say this place is probably one of the cheapest... More

I stayed at the Blackjack Inn over New Years this year with my boyfriend and two of his friends from high school. When we arrived, our friend who made the reservations went to check in and pay for our extra nights (the initial reservation had been made through a third-party site, but he had called to confirm our additional nights)....

I don't really know where to start. Other than the location, everything else is dreadful. Worn, dirty, unmaintained, broken etc. Unless you are really desperate and don't want to spend the night freezing in your car, I would avoid this place. If I had the right kit, I'd opt for my car.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Blackjack Inn for one night in August of 2014. We found our experience to be very good! We arrived at around 10:00pm; the front desk was empty so we rang the doorbell. The sweet lady who runs the motel promptly and pleasantly came downstairs and checked us in. She is from Nepal and...
