My brother and I stayed two nights to go snowboarding at Heavenly. My brother booked this place and we paid $257 for two nights on a Fri. and Sat. That is pretty cheap for the area. The parking was awkward as you had to back out to get out because you couldn't drive through and the parking spots are angled....

The place was clean and the front desk staff friendly. That's all I can say for the place. The room was tiny. Amenities nearly non-existent. No ice maker on premises, not even a freaking phone in the room - and cell service (at least Verizon) barely works and only intermittently. We couldn't call out to get a dinner reservation. They...

This place deserves 5 stars. Not only did they accept us after midnight when we had to pack up and leave another place, they threw in the kitchenette for free because they didn't have any rooms without one left and knew we probably wouldn't be able to pay for it. The guy behind the desk was so easy to talk...

We had a terrible experience un another motel in NLT and found this one to be very clean, quiet, and run by very friendly people. We stayed 2 nights there and enjoyed the place. A bit far from most of the local nightlife, but a few restaurants in the area. Recommended!

Considering the options for the area this place has clean rooms for the price, it is affordable and not a dump. The family who owns the motel is friendly, good personality and they want to make your stay the best it can be. The room we had was clean, comfy new king-size bed, only thing was the shower was a...

We stayed here for one night while visiting Tahoe. We arrived 3 hours early for check in and the owners could not have been more welcoming. They got us into our room within 15 minutes. The lady owner answered all of our questions in great detail and took a genuine interest in our trip and myself and my partner. The...

The room was clean and big enough. We had room #6, which included a Jacuzzi bath and a shower. The Jacuzzi jets did not work. The motel is right on the main street, so the road noise was present. There are not enough marked parking spaces, so if you get in late the parking is dicey.

Office was friendly and really lovely people who genuinely looked happy to see us. Accommodations are not on par for what we'd expect for $160 a night. The wifi did not work the first night. The air conditioner repetedly shut off. No tissue, 1 garbage can. Slightly musty smell. No breakfast and parking is very limited. This would be ok...

We had to relocate after a double booking at a a rented cabin. We looked at 2 other hotels but they were not as clean,nor as FRIENDLY. Good beds,quiet,lots of hot water and the unit with the kitchen worked well. Good value all around! Out the back side of the hotel are undeveloped areas with lots of wild bunnies. We...

We stayed one night at the Matterhorn Motel and are very content. The room was clean and nicely furnished. A little bit old but in good conditions. Bed are very comfortable. The staff was very friendly, we were greeted like old friends. He told us immediately where to go and recommended us some restaurants. Nice stay, would definitely go there...

  • The remains of the other closet hold a small fridge and microwave
  • Apparently they cut one room in two. That's the half door into what's left of the closet.
