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

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... More

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... 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. No frills, but everything we needed PLUS a refer, microwave and coffee pot. And you can tell there is effort made to keep things up to date (no orange shag... More

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

Great place for the price. If you are looking for a place that has all the bells and whistles, then this isn't the place for you. If you are looking for a place to sleep, shower, cook, etc on a budget, then this is definitely the place for you. The room was clean, the bed was very comfortable, there were... More

Didn't expect much since it was an older place to stay. Was surprised to find the room clean and had a nice update to it. The lady at the desk was very nice and very helpful. I had asked directions to our destination and she promptly ran out to get her son to tell us how to get there. For... More
