We highly recommend the Pepper Tree Inn, it was clean & had the towns very best views of the lake. Just be sure to get on the 7th floor as the ones below have trees obstructing the view. A heads up, this is a very basic hotel but clean & had comfortable beds.

The room was very basic - and we knew that when we booked here. It's location is both a positive - walking distance to Common Beach and restaurants, and a negative - very loud - lots of street noise if windows are open. No air conditioning - which is the norm for Lake Tahoe.

Thank you so much for taking the time to provide your feedback. You are correct, if a guest is currently inside of the room, the housekeepers do not service the room. We are happy to provide towels and any other amenities at the front desk. Also, giving us a call to let us know that you're leaving for a bit so that we get a housekeeper to then service your room is much appreciated and let's us know that your room can be serviced. We hope you did get to enjoy the pool during your stay even though it sounds like you were disappointed with the closing time. We have updated the sign to reflect specific times to minimize further confusion from future guests. The pool closes at 7pm so that we can drop the cleaning robot inside and have it clean into the night. A clean hotel pool takes a lot of upkeep before and after operating hours. Again, thanks again for all of your feedback.

Thanks for the feedback Miguel! We try to keep the property priced competitively due to the amenities and location of Pepper Tree Inn. Weekday stays are definitely lower priced than weekends and we do offer AAA discount! We hope to see you this snowboarding season. Make sure to fill-up on the waffles before hitting the slopes and enjoy your time. Also, make lots of friends here in Tahoe City so you won't be forever alone! The locals and visitors here are AWESOME!!

Does this hotel cooperate with foreign students (Work&Travel program)? I'd like to work here for this summer..
I think I know what you want and the answer is - sorry- no- we do not offer "extended stay" special rates. We are so busy and booked during the summer months, it is cost-prohibited for us. I can offer no advice for cheap extended stays in the Lake Tahoe area as it is a resort community. Sorry- The Management
