“Absolute dive - avoid at all costs”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

What was I thinking!! This dump already had terrible reviews from trip advisor, and I always take on board their comments, but don't know what I was thinking when I booked me, husband and 8 year old into this dump/health hazard.

Filthy stained carpets, mouldy ceilings ( really very bad complete with flaking paint), bathroom window that didn't lock and opened unto back carpark and wait for it...the temPur pedic beds that they so proudly boast about on their website is a mattress top, sitting upon a box frame.makes hilarious fun when one adult sits on one side and it rises up on the other side by 8 inches.

Oh management, the daily $ resort fee you slug what was that for? Access to a pit BBQ, area (the old filled in pool), crappy coffee in the morning and wait for it...organic shower products!! Do yourself a favour and look at the ingredient contents of the shampoo only.." contains organic honey". Hardly a organic claim, especially since they are cheap and nasty and many hotels use this made in china product. A rip off and most definately not a value add. No amount of organic anything can make up for a filthy, aged property. I trust all the bikers enjoy it though, there were enough of them there. Crappy and filthy!

Booked the Park Tahoe for 3 nights but unfortunately had to cancel and did within 3 days notice as I was told at booking. Was refunded my initial deposit and then accidentally charged the entire stay later. Have called back repeatedly to get my money refunded and getting the run-around. Now 2 weeks later management trying to charge the initially refunded cancellation fee because I called with 69 hours notice instead of 72 hours. General manager Nicole has been repeatedly rude or does not return phone calls. I should have heeded the previous reviews and never booked this hotel.

The shower leaked, the bathroom floor was dirty, there were holes in in the bathroom ceiling and a large one in the "closet". The woman at the front desk was super rude. You can hear traffic through the night, worst night's sleep I've ever had

My experience here was not good.
1) water shut off unexpectedly and when taking a shower the water temperature will change.
2) hidden fees... 12.00 for resort amenities? There were none, the coffee was terrible and do not expect a continental breakfast.
3) the bed... I thought looking at the previous reviews that at least the bed will be ok, then I discovered that the bed is lumpy like some fat person left an indentation and body print onto the mattress.
4) dog friendly???? There is no place for a dog to do its business.
5) vending machine broken and the staff are not friendly.
I will never stay again

Room Tip: find another place to stay

This hotel has potential. There has been some upgrades (beds, shower) but we could tell that there still needs to be more (sink, tv, bathroom window had no screens and no fan). The location is great and close to things like Harrah's, Heavenly, Starbucks, grocery store, lake, and a yummy fish taco truck across the street at the gas station. I was disappointed that one of the hand towels had make up stains and the duvet cover had dirt stains. Both seemed cleaned-just the stains didn't come out. The price was decent compared to most hotels on Lake Tahoe Blvd close to stateline.

We've stayed here several times and they were OK. LOVE the location of the hotel because it's right across from Starbucks, Heavenly tram, and grocery stores. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was clean but carpet was a little bit dated. We've always ordered microwave when we stayed there. I wish that they didn't charge resort fee because the pool and the hot tub have always been closed at least for the last 3 years that we've gone there.

Finding dog-friendly, affordable lodging in Lake Tahoe is very difficult. My husband and I were thrilled to be able to book a room at the Park Tahoe Inn. The website made the inn look warm, clean and inviting. The website wasn't quite accurate. The location was ideal as it was within walking distance to the stateline casinos. We arrived a bit early but early check-in was forbidden. Our room was a big disappointment. The carpet was old, dark and dingy. The mini refrigerator had seen better days. The air conditioner was old and noisy as could be. The organic amenities included one bar of soap (which had to be shared between the bathroom sink and the shower), one mini tube of shampoo (no conditioner), and hand lotion with the seal already broken. Yuck! The bathroom was small and cramped. The wall above the door was cracked and in need of repair. The hair dryer was strategically placed above the toilet. Huh??? The cable T.V. was snowy for most channels. Our stay was topped off by no hot water with the first shower and warm water with the second shower. Needless to say, we won't be returning.
