We normally stay at the Days Inn, but we ended up booking here at the Travel Inn. Gross, nasty mistake. I booked a non smoking room because I am pregnant and we don't smoke, I know I booked a non smoking room and had even put in the additional comments page to be sure we get a clean non smoking...

The lamp cord was taped and was causing sparks when plugged in. The toilet bowl had a ring and I'm not sure the sheets were clean. There was a tattoo artist in the room next door with people in and out all night one night and the next night I think they were drug dealers. When I complained the wife... More

Hotel was a great stay for a rest from the big cities, the trip is well worth it, guaranteed. You will leave feeling your energy regenerated. Just make sure you stock up on food before you come, the local Safeway, CVS, and Raleys can be a bit pricey when it is vacationing season.

Reasonable prices and staff member was exceptional. She was there at check in and check out; both were extremely busy times but she was the professional. We stayed at Travel Inn for 2 nights, for a special event and it was a great place to stay. Hotel and our room were both clean. Our room was freshly painted with limited... More

Great stay.. New owners and new remodel rooms that look amazing. Staff is very nice and very helpful I have stayed here before but the room has a huge huge improvement and it looks amazing. I am glad that there is new ownership and they are acutely making the improvement that was needed.

This is worst ever motel I have ever seen in my life. They charged me $119 for a small, noisy, dirty and old room that comes without any amenity and doesn't worth more than $30-$40 comparing other motels or lodges in the area. WiFi, TV, shower, A/C...Nothing works... the room was beside the main road and I was unable to... More

Except checking out. Floor was not vacuumed, dirty shower, bed was so lumpy, can not get comfortable. Had to wear my flip flop to the shower. Never again. Unfortunately had reservation for two nights, had to take sleep aid to sleep.

Cons: A very poor bang for the buck despite being a little cheaper. A motel in every sense of the word. In my room: No soap nor hair dryer. Very noisy... More

The room has a nasty smell, the door frame was coming apart, it's super hard to lock your door, the ac we had was a conventional fan that plugs in the wall and 1950's heater that does even work. When we arrived there was a big storm that knocked out all power in Tahoe so we had no power for... More
