We wanted to stay in S Lake Tahoe with 5 adults and this place came up with a GREAT price! It had three queen size beds, a microwave and minifridge. We were two blocks from the beach and they gave us a beach pass for the group. It was quiet, safe and clean. It was well worth the money we... More

Basic Motel, but I liked it a bit more than I normally would, because for me this was like a typical motel as seen in American movies. This place is good for one night while passing through. No-nonsense, large beds, clean enough.

For the most part, the room was clean; the bed was comfortable; had some issues with the bathroom (shower curtain was musty); mgmt. replaced immediately. The hair dryer handle (attached to the wall) appeared not to have been cleaned for some time even though we mentioned the need for it to be sanitized when we spoke with mgmt. about the... More

Parrking was full but luckily found a space close to our room. Rooms were a bit outdated but okay for the price. It was fine for the... More

I stayed there for 2 night at the end of Memorial Day Weekend. The room was ok. Much bigger than I expected but not the cleanest. The TV reception was constantly going out and the shower dripped constantly. But again very spacious with a mini fridge. Only about 1/2 block from the rear entrance to Harvey's casino. The price dropped... More

I spent two nights here to enjoy the Lake Tahoe region before heading to Yosemite National Park. I enjoyed the hotel just fine. The breakfast was simple, the hotel basic, the cleaning staff adequate and the owner was nice. The price was reasonable too. I would stay here again if in the area.

We booked for 2 nights, 3 days. The toilet kept plugging up. The free breakfast was cold cereal. The dresser drawers were dirty. They also didn't show us as booking for 2 nights even tho I had a confirmation letter! The only positive I can say was that it is very close to the state line & well within walking... More

Our stay was at a perfect location within steps from state line. The lodge wasn't super clean and things seemed to be a little run down but it served it's purpose well for our stay. Fixtures were not in tip top shape but were functioning. Our adjoining room had a light fixture that was loose and the lights hung wrong,... More

WE did not expect much from our one night stay at this motel. We chose it as it cost under $50 and we were only sleeping there and leaving early the next morning. The bed was small ( double) but comfortable and the bathroom was clean and teh flat screen TV was large. As expected, it was a short walk... More

Our stay was a spontaneous one. The day was absolutely beautiful so we looked around for a cheep but clean hotel, located close to the Casinos. The Blue Jay lodge is walking distance to the Village and the Casinos. The rooms are nothing to get excited about. The room was somewhere to sleep, not a room you want to hang... More
