This hotel is old and outdated but it was clean, comfortable and surprisingly quiet. For the money this hotel is a great find. It is close to the casinos if you are going to a show, easily within walking distances. They also give you a guest pass to a very nice beach within walking distance as well. The breakfast was simple but tasty. We will definitely stay here again the next time we see a show at Tahoe.

This motel is tucked in the dense zone of lodging between Stateline casinos and the beach, but I like how it is just a short walk to a beach and has its own private pool and hot tub. I also liked finding it has a guest kitchen available with fridge. That meant I could skip driving and spending money on a couple meals and recharge the ice packs for my cooler. It does not have noise from a highway, unlike many other motels near South Shore.

The motel allows dogs for an extra fee. The nearby beach does not allow dogs, but they may have a good walk around the neighborhood or drive over to Rabe Meadows off Kahle Drive or Elk Point Road and the forest path to the meadow if ready for a mile or more walk.

Room Tip: I'd ask ahead to choose a room with the desired window orientation. As I had an unreserved ADA accessible room, it was on the dark back eastside of upper building and is a small room with dark walls. However, it was a quick walk under the building to the lovely pool patio. I was there midweek so it was quiet as unlike weekends or in a casino hotel. There is an elevator, too. This would be good for Heavenly skiers, Tram tourists, or those attending concerts, comedy or movies at the Stateline, Nevada casinos. There is a bus system within a few blocks and a reservable shuttle from the Reno airport to the casinos.

We went on Labor Day weekend, so I get that they are going to jack up the prices. But for the rate we paid the place was really run down and crappy. The comforter on the bed looked like it had been in use since the 70's and the walls of the place were grungy and dinged up. Overall felt kind of dirty. I spent the night trying to stop the shower from dripping- kept me up all night. The one nice thing was the breakfast.. which was quickly ruined by a guy approaching us as we ate, claiming to be the motel's "activities manager" who "needed to give us our complimentary coupons" - as he tried to get us to go to what was obviously a time share presentation. He was doing a really hard used car salesman routine, pulling out all the stops to get us to go to what I later saw on some sign up sheets he had left on a table in the lobby was for "Diamond Resorts International" - which he did not make mention of. Anytime you see the word "International" in a group's name you know it's for a religious cult or it's a scam. We got rid of him quickly but it still pisses me off that the motel let him be there in the first place, I know he's just doing his (scam) job. After this experience, not really thinking of going back to Tahoe anytime soon let alone buying a time share. If you have to try and trick people into going to a sales pitch by offering gift cards maybe it's not a good deal? So yeah if you're staying here make sure to ask the "activities manager" how his sales leads are going.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else!

I love staying here. Book directly with hotel, ask for Mike. He is the owner...nice guy. I have stayed here with my dog several times while skiing at Heavenly and Kirkwood. Bus to Heavenly ski lifts stops in front of hotel. Walk to casinos and many food/drink choices on Hwy 50 near Stateline.

Rooms are clean. Great value for the price!

Free breakfast...it's just OK, but it's hard to screw up making your own waffles and toasting a bagel and spreading with cream cheese. Staff is friendly, helpful.

Room Tip: Not all rooms have a microwave, although they all have a mini-fridge. Community kitchen and extra microwaves in the hallway if you really need one. Kitchen has table, full oven, sink, etc. Good if you have a big family and want to save $ and cook stuff for yourself. Raley's grocery, movie theaters, ice skating, ski shops, Starbucks...all within walking distance!
