Ok, so this is not the Ritz. But it offers a convenient, cheap stay. The water is hot in the shower, the breakfast is hearty for snowboarding, (not eggs, but the toasted muffins with peanut butter and hot coffee and bananas hit the spot), and the room was quiet. The internet was sketchy....worked best in the lobby. If your stay is more about the outdoor adventure and convenient access to Heavenly and walking distance to some dinner spots and you want to save some money for adventures rather than luxury accommodations, then this is your spot.

I think this is a good value hotel in the heart of S. Lake Tahoe. It is clean and easy access to Ski Run Blvd. There is also a pancake house right next door. The couple at the front desk is also very nice.
After arriving at 10 Am we could immediately check in so the hospitality is great ! Rooms are ok, no complaints. Wifi available and a small pool (not used). Hygienic is fine and the beds are enormous (especially for European standards). I like the pizza hut and the bar (cheap Bud).
