Very average place to stay. I think it was a little overpriced for the area I guess because it is overlooking a lake. This motel was being painted so it didn't look that great. Landscaping could have been much better with yard debris swept up.

The hotel is currently undergoing painting of the exterior and some internal renovations. Our room (103) had new paint, carpet, and furnishings. It is a nice property. Aside from the casino down the street, there are not...

We stopped here on way to Lake tahoe from death valley. The location is nice with a nice lake view. Rooms are big, clean and comfortable. We had a nice hassle free stay here. This is relatively less expensive than staying in lake tahoe

This is a dog friendly hotel. Dog loved it. It has a covered walk way, that the dog could lay on outside. Staff was friendly and breakfast was good. The view from everyone room was great looking over the lake with large windows. You can walk to Topaz Inn Casino and gamble or have a reasonable coast meal. You can...

Stayed 1 night enroute to South Lake Tahoe. Very nice and newly decorated hotel with amazing room size. We had a view over lake Tahoe which was nice to see the sun going down. Staff were all excellent and breakfast was great too. There is a lift to the various floors and a hot tub, small (I mean small!) exercise...

Excellent hotel, great caring staff. They went out of their way to ensure I had a pleasant stay. Amazing views of the lake from the rooms and a short minute drive to the lake and gas station nearby. The rooms have been remodeled and everything is very modern. The beds are super comfy as well.

Everything I wanted in a hotel following a week-long backpacking trip in Yosemite. The owner is a wonderful person who is committed to the comfort of his guests. I had such a good experience, I felt that I needed to share… Five-stars on service and accommodations. An oasis in the desert.

Our room on the third floor had a splendid view of Topaz Lake. Loved the room! Lots of room to spread out and a comfy sofa with a coffee table. Everything worked fine. Shower had plenty of pressure and hot water. We slept in and skipped the free breakfast. My biggest problem was there was no convenient walking path to...
