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... More

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... More

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... More

Needed somewhere close to the "Y" to stay for a few nights while spending our days at Meeks Bay. This motel was perfect. It is small and simple, but clean.

I had a great experience at this motel. I took my son for skiing lessons and was a little worried what kind of motel it might be, before arriving. But rest assured, its completely a family friendly motel. Lady and her husband at the reception were very friendly and gave very good service. Though some of the interiors in the... More
