2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2011

I asked the young men on the patio about the place. They said, "Solidly adequate." We were looking for a clean bed and bathroom. Check. The furniture and curtains were old. It came with a fridge, microwave, and TV, but there were not enough electrical sockets, so we had to choose between the microwave and TV. The staff were friendly and helpful. But the advertised 'breakfast' was a packaged danish and weak coffee. Door and window security was poor with an old key. The location was a little noisy, but it was conveniently close to the main Tahoe road and the casinos. If you are looking for a place to crash, its clean. I later found other places that were nicer for a few dollars more.
