September 25th, 2016 Hotel, or should I say Motel was fine. Clean, good continental breakfast, pretty outdated. However, my biggest concern was that it had NO HEAT until October even though the weather went down into the 30s!!! They do have small electric heaters, but when we called to ask for one they said they ran out. By California State... More

Everything other people have said is right on. The location is perfect for being in the hart of town. Not fancy, but clean, would stay again if the need arises. Great pool, the elevator leaves a little to be desired though.

We needed a room and just stopped. We ended up with a room on the 7th floor of the tower having a great view of the town and the lake. We liked it so much that we stayed again on our return trip. There was music at the Commons Beach that we could hear plainly from our balcony, but it... More

Although more cozy and quiet cabins available in area at a comparable price, pepper tree motel is conveniently located downtown and affordable. Rooms comfortable, simply appointed but cozy. Good complimentary breakfast and heated pool good. Recommend for good value.

We stayed at Pepper Tree Inn from Monday-Wednesday. The room was clean and we had a 5th floor room with a shared balcony. This hotel is very noisy with the traffic going by constantly. Also, it was quite warm in N.Tahoe and the rooms do not have air conditioning. All we had to get air movement was a small portable... More

Chose this hotel because it seemed like the best combination of price and style. It's a funny-looking tall building, not sure what it was originally built for, but because of that it has a gorgeous view of the lake. The building is only one-room thick, that is to say, every room has a window on the back side as well... More

Rooms have mini fridge, microwave, coffeemaker (with bean grinder!), ironing board, flat screen TV, fan for warmer days. Plus the hotel... More

Centrally located near the beach, mall, and restaurants. We walked a few blocks to the dam. Interesting pictures on how it was built. We ate at a local restaurant. We did not have to drive at all. Rooms had a rustic bear theme. Very good breakfast buffet in a separate ding facility.
