We made plans to stay here mostly because everything around was booked up. However, we were very pleasantly surprised. Although the hotel is older, it has been remodeled and it is is a great location (right across the street from the lake!). There were some "quirky" things with the room and the heat controls were broken but we were still... More

Positive Notes: Desk staff were very friendly and welcoming. Check-in and -out were a breeze. While not fancy, the room WAS clean. Room came with a nice sized fridge and a microwave - wish I had known that prior to coming. They also have BBQ's just outside the door - again, I was unaware of that fact - so it... More

I stayed her over the the weekend for a wedding nearby and was very disappointed in the difference between the reviews/description and the reality of what the hotel was like. All over the hotel it is obvious the hotel owners don't care much about the guest experience. CONS 1. The bed- A thin mattress on top of of a flat... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. As it so happens the King mattress is new as is the custom crafted platform bed frame, so the level of comfort would depend on the individual. It is unacceptable that the unit was not properly cleaned. This information should have been shared with staff in a relevant... More

Three of us stayed for several nights in room 139, the room featured on their website. In an area full of tired old motels, they are clearly focussed on raising the standard. Also very much of note was the desire to serve the guests of Ashley and her team. Far above the typical standard of motel style accommodations. Very happy... More

My review is colored by the fact that we booked an upstairs room with a lakeview but were given a downstairs room with peeak-a-boo views of the lake. This was in the Squirrel building at the very back of the property. Also, the website states there is beach access across the street; however, a new owner at that property states... More

...that can be beyond management's control. It's how they respond that tells you what you might expect if you encounter an issue on property. Case in point - on the second evening of our stay, we discovered that there was no longer running water in our bathroom! Unfortunately, our call to the office (bring your cellphone as there are no...

Dear Guest, Thank you for sharing your experience with us. The entry door locks and it's unfortunate that you hesitated to ask for assistance, as staff would have been eager to help. Although this unit is still in need of a new TV (on the to do list) - it has since been extensively renovated. From a beautiful rustic lodge... More

I stayed in room 123, a dog friendly room. The room was dark, depressing and in need of a serious makeover, which I could have done on about $200 and one trip to HomeGoods or a little time on Craigslist. The old brass headboard was bolted to the wall. Seriously? The shower was moldy and had only a flimsy old... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for acknowledging the location and staff in your detailed feedback. The variation in accommodations available is to meet the demands of the ever expanding demographic of travelers, from families on a budget to pet owners. Unfortunately one cannot expect a deluxe accommodation with a low cost standard price tag for a pet friendly unit. The existing... More

Reasonably priced lodging if you consider that you have very thoughtful and useful loaners available. One kayak, six "cruiser style" bikes, large beach towels and many beach chairs of high quality and design. All the staff were good to us, and know the area very well and can meet your needs. You are 400' from an expansive beach area, walking... More

If you're looking for a place to stay in Tahoe that is cute, clean and semi-rustic, this is it. We enjoyed our 3 night stay and would highly recommend this place. It's right across the street from a nice beach on the lake, and they have a kayak and bikes you can borrow. The inn is older, but well maintained.... More
