“Great Location and staff was very helpful!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

If your looking for a hotel close to pretty much everything! This is it!! Location is great, walking distance to casinos, gondola and restaurants. But nothing too special no pool or hot tub. This is your standard hotel room, no amenities. Carpets are stained and even felt wet. But for the price you can't expect much. Tempurpedic mattress. Toilet kept getting clogged up, received a plunger right away.
Staff was very helpful and attentive. Jessica recommended some great shops and places to eat, loved Basecamp. Best Pizza!!! Received a loyalty program card from Jess, we'll be sure to be back.

This hotel is great! Location, pets allowed, service standards. It was quiet and you could walk just about anywhere. My dogs needed to go out at 2:00 am in the morning (a habit we have been trying the break). I noticed the light on in the reception area and the coffee pots were set up! I was freezing and needed to warm up. Starbucks was long closed. The general manager was wonderful. She poured us both hot coffee, chatted about local spots and was truly genuine and kind even at 2 am! This is a great place in to say in south Tahoe. We will definitely be back.

We stayed in this hotel with the family for 3 nights couple of weeks before. The room was quite unclean. The carpet in the room was digusting. The shower handle was not working and it finally broke. They claim to provide Wi-Fi. I was not even able to connect once. When reported the problem, the told that I would have to wait until the technician resolves the issue, which won't be until the day after we check out! There are better hotels around.

Booked via Orbitz & got the room for a great price (even with 25 dollar pet fee per night) & room was just as expected. A little minimalistic but came with fridge & very comfotable bed with memory foam matress which made for a great night's sleep post 13 hours on the road.

Hotel offers 24 7 free coffee, tea or lemon ice water & you can literally walk across the street to Raleys for groceries & to places to poty your dogs that have dog poo pick up stations.

Yes it is an older motel & I have to agree there was an overwhelming chemical cleaning smell in the room initially but nothing a little febreeze couldn't take care of (something I never travel without for those long roadtrips with my gasey bassett hound).

Pluses include bed, location, pet-friendly {but fee is per pet}, allow multiple dogs, nice outdoor gas firepit on patio, friendly night desk staff, fridge in room plus individual thermostats in your unit. Call ahead to make sure you have pet friendly room - Orbitz told me to do this so I did.

Minuses no free breakfast, thin walls ( we cranked up the heater which helped but could still hear traffick so bring ear plugs if lite sleeper), & daily pet fee of $25/pet (but only charged me for one dog since not specified when I called).

Recommendations would be to post specific information regarding pet policy & considrr changing policy to something like. ..for 1-2 night stay pet fee is a total of 25, for 3-5 nights 50, but for longer stays to be individualized...note these fees include up to 2 pets.

Overall exactly what I expected....a non-fancy hotel with comfy beds & in a great location in walking distance to affordable dining, skii lift & grocery store....only 1 mile from The Brewery at Lake Tahoe too!

You can't beat the location of Park Tahoe Inn, and this place is a bargain relative to other places in South Lake. The location is across from the Heavenly Gondola and they have free parking. The rooms are fine, nothing special but clean and have Tempurpedic beds which are very nice. Overall very comfortable for a 1 - 2 night stay. If you're looking for something special this isn't it, but for a nice clean room with a great location and great price this is a good choice. Also, they are pet friendly.

I went to ski with my family and this was our first time in Lake Tahoe, so we looked for a nice hotel in South Lake Tahoe and we thought we found one, but Park Inn Tahoe's superior room is just big enough to open the room door to get on the bed. Very small room and old. We found nice and big hotels just 2 blocks away with better price in Nevada side. I paid over $200 in this cheesy hotel. We are never going to stay in this hotel ever.

For the most part, a hotel's website will give you a fairly accurate depiction of what to expect when you arrive. From the moment I opened the door to my room, I knew that this was not what I had signed up for. To be fair, I got a decent rate for the area...but I would have gladly paid more for a better experience. The room an a very musty/chemically odor, the furniture was of varied design, and the bed/pillows left much to be desired. The bathroom entry from the bedroom area was a very narrow passage, and would certainly not be suitable for those with walker/wheelchair or for larger adults. The cable for the TV (I'm assuming) was literally run right across the top of the floor and into the wall in the restroom. I have attached a picture of this. The ice machine was broken (reportedly a temporary issue), but the paper signs were clearly not a new feature. I had to walk completely around the entire exterior of the building to get ice, which was really only a big issue because it was approx 35 degrees out. The rooms also did not have nearly enough insulation to keep sound out, every word that was said and every footstep in the vicinity was clearly echoing through my room.

If there had been other options for lodging for the night, I certainly would have pursued a different location
