“Nice room and helpful staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

Unbeatable for the price, clean and close to everything. Staff are nice and helpful. They even contact you before your arrival to straighten the reservation and entertain our requests. Someone said the room is small, so we are a bit worried about storage space. Turns out the room has plenty of storage for our 6-day trip.

The room is clean and tidy, with Jacuzzi. Some said the room is old, we think that's the charm of its vintage room. Wifi is quite fast. Heater heat up the room quite fast in these cold days.

So hubby and I decided to get away and found something saying theme rooms. Hmm could be interesting. This place is older but I think it adds to the charm of it.
Close to downtown for dining and gambling.
This place is split in 2 lots we stayed in the back area near the chapel which was quiet and I preferred it. Most the beds they have are queens or doubles and not the best quality. Our room was Egypt and this has no living room for us to watch tv together. A small wet bar kitchen and jacuzzi tub downstairs with sleeping upstairs.
Will go back again.

The room looked pretty enough, with a nice four poster bed and quaint decor, however the bed was really uncomfortable and the AC unit in the bedroom itself didn't work, there was however a fan unit in the bathroom which provided ice cold ventilation, but this had only two settings and even the lowest cool setting was like sitting in a freezer and the air flow was so strong it was difficult to even open the bathroom door! The curtains aren't the best, and it's pretty noisy due to location to the main road
Location was good and staff friendly enough on check in

Nice price, clean, close to everything and staff very nice. Did not stay in a themed room....thought about it, however, decided to save the few dollars for a bottle of wine. Continental Breakfast was what it should be...juice, yogurt, cold cereal, bread, etc.. Lite sleeper...road noise. Usually sleep with white noise (fan). No fan in room...thank goodness for Internet connection. Downloaded a white noise application and slept through the night.

We decided to book the theme suite and it was one of the best places we stayed on our whole 5 1/2 week trip. The staff was great and they even called the night before to straighten out our reservation, as the site I reserved from kept putting down that we had 3 children. This motel is spread out across another road so it was involved getting to our suite. But when we checked in, he said it would be worth it and it was. I was anxious to see what our suite was and upon entering you could see it was Egyptian. The theme was carried on through out the whole suite, which included the bedroom up the stairs. Everything you could possibly imagine for your comfort was there, fluffy towels included. But the best had to be the hot tub. It was super size and the location was in the kitchen area, but it was so relaxing especially since they had a stereo system that I could hook up my IPad and have relaxing music while soaking. And it was so quiet and the bed so comfortable we had a great sleep.

Room Tip: Do spend a little more and get the theme suite.

We had quite a few (35+) family and friends gather here for a 3 pm wedding. We did not stay at this hotel, but one close by. Ruth Ann and the whole staff was very helpful, and the wedding chapel is very beautiful; Victorian-themed, with nice light for pictures. I was surprised how easily it came together; they had a minister/notary come, all the paperwork was done very quickly, and we took our time taking pictures with everyone in the beautiful courtyard outside the chapel after the ceremony. We got lots of good pictures and beautiful memories out of the experience. We didn't feel rushed out, even though we may have exceeded our allotted time.

Ok, everyone to his taste, but we didn´t like the Tahoe Chalet Inn. The rooms are dated and dark, but clean. Quite small (bed)rooms, but a large bathroom (strange combination, we put our luggage in the bathroom as there was more space there). Location is good, free parking and close to the attractions (gondola, the lake and the casinos).
The design is awful, but ok, as I said, different tastes. Breakfast is a joke, the continental breakfast is more of a "we have coffee for you" and the offer to give a discount voucher for IHOP instead is not a very good compensation.
As a summary: Ok, but overpriced for what you get. Clean, but that´s it. Wouldn´t stay there again if I had any other option.
