Steps from the beach, this straightforward hotel is 1.7 miles from Harrah's Lake Tahoe casino and 1.8 miles from live concerts at Harveys Outdoor Arena. The unassuming rooms offer free Wi-Fi and cable TV, as well as minifridges, and tea and coffeemaking equipment. Pets are welcome (fee). There's complimentary breakfast, plus a seasonal outdoor pool and a coin-operated guest laundry.

This is a no frills hotel with a comfortable bed. The front desk was very pleasant and helpful. Excellent location near the casinos and resorts. Dog friendly!

Due to travel plan change, for Christmas day 2016 (12/25/2016), everywhere is expensive and booked in south lake Tahoe area. Finally, we took our chance and booked via Hotwire (blind hotel name). That's why we end up in this hotel. I booked two rooms with...

We stayed here for a night and we had an excellent stay! The entire staff is wonderful! The wifi signal worked perfectly to our room even though our room was far from the office (room 529).

Room garbage was only removed once during 5-night stay. Room cleaning was kept to minimum. Plenty disgusting garbage around the bedding. Breakfast is very basic, and many items ran out at 7:30 AM. Strong curry smell in office. Although staffs are friendly.
