There were so many gross bugs in our bed I looked under our pillow and saw a huge centipede. I flipped up the rest of the covers and saw 3 more bugs. Gross. Besides the nasty bugs in the place where we were supposed to sleep... On the last day, the manager was pounding on our door at 10:50 saying... More

They charged me over five hundred for 3 nights in a tiny room with one queen sized bed because it was the weekend of July 4th. I regretted it as soon as I stepped foot into the office. The lady working was unpleasant with poor english. She threatened, "if I see you bring one more person to your room I... More

Room was clean and bed was comfortable. There is just enough parking for all the rooms (not a very big parking lot) although confirmation email said otherwise. There is no breakfast but wifi is free. Close to many eating joins and the marina.

This was a great hotel. The management are really nice. The ambiance was perfect for lake tahoe! I recommend it to anyone who really wants to enjoy their stay. Nice rustic rooms. We stayed in a 3 room suite. Check it out!

We stayed here for 1 night as a family of 4. We turned up and booked. The woman at reception seemed nice but the man was quite miserable. The room was fine but absolutely freezing cold!!!! We asked reception to light our gas fire which we couldn't keep on all night and woke up cold with runny noses. 4 cups... More

Our room had old, old drapes and a bedspread with holes, disgustingly stained pillows, wet carpet where the ceiling had leaked, moldy shower with broken faucet, a fan for a.c., a flimsy lock on the door and no bolt, bars on the window and the smoke alarm was missing. Some of the other patrons made noise all night long. I... More

The room was DIRTY. The carpet at the foot of the queen sized bed smelled of vomit and was sticky dirty everywhere. The two chairs were stained. I found a cannabis seed in my night stand drawer, and the other night stand was nailed shut. We ran out of "Kleenex" after one use and, upon lifting the empty box out... More

This was the worst experience ever. I booked this hotel thru Expedia (a trusted site) and it was horrible. The carpet was torn and had holes all over it. It was so stained and smelled disgusting. I was shocked when I plugged in my hot iron, there was no grounded outlets. The bathroom- the door would not close, the towels... More

The best thing in the room was the Jacuzzi tub big enough to hold four people.Not that we had four people. The bed was king size. The refrige,held the Microwave, and it held the coffee maker. The closet was a shelve with rod across to hang maybe four garments. Under the shelf was the desk. So couldn't hang dress or... More
