The cost of the Motel was high, over $169.00 per night and the rooms were awful. We did not notice the Shower being broken until the morning after since we arrived late and when we went to complain they told us there was nothing they could do.

Room was dirty, carpets were terribly stained, there was no soap in the dispenser in the shower. We stayed here through a time share thing we bought and it was a nightmare. We were charged for 2 rooms when we only had one. I would not recommend this hotel. Wi-Fi does not work in room.

Stayed here for 3 days. I was surprised how nice the rooms are inside. It looks like there was recent renovation. The rooms are large, especially if you get the suite. The price is very reasonable. There is a small refrigerator and microwave. There is a leather chair and couch. Staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay... More

Had the most amazing time here! Staff was so friendly and recommended the Basque resteraunt across the street (JT Basque Bar & Dining Room) which was also amazing by far! After dinner we spent a night in watching movies and headed to Tahoe the next day! The room is beautiful and spacious with a cabin-like feel. The wood floors and... More

However the final bill was about $ 60 higher and was already charged to my VISA card. I am still waiting for the... More

Would give a zero if possible. Our toilet broke and LISA hung up on me at the front desk when I called to ask for help after saying there was nothing they could do. Floor was super dirty which we found out when we tried to wipe up a bit of toilet water. See pic. Complimentary breakfast is stale oatmeal.

This used to be my "go to" stay option in the Carson Valley. It was adequate, reasonably priced, and in a good location. Then it went bust and was bought by Cle Hospitality. I figured they were upgrading the place, because it's now premium priced. Wrong. It's still a basic motel, but they only made minor room improvements and charge... More

The Staff was very very very very rude, The outside looks nice, and the room has some modern and comforting updates. The carpet is horribly stained, and the breakfast is a choice of a sloppy plain yogurt or oatmeal with cold coffee to drink. I had to wait 10 mins for someone to come to the counter so that I...

Our three night stay was paid for in advance. Every night we stayed, they charged us again for it. When I mentioned it to the staff they said that they were new and they charged ALL the guests, but they wouldn't rectify my account. They acted like it was no big deal. My husband and I had no spending money... More
