We booked 2 separate weekends. The first, we were stuck in a one bed room next to the front office. Very bad experience. The room was smelly, the sheets were clean but the cover was dirty. The carpet was dirty. There was no hot water so we can't shower. The light in the bathroom did not work. We checked in late and so just decided to go to sleep. We had another night reserved but the room was so bad and they didn't have another one available so we just left. Overall, one of the worst stay at Tahoe.
We decided to give this place another try since we already prepaid but made a separate reservation at another place just in case. This time, we were given the handicap room which was very spacious and has 2 beds. We don't ask for much, just the basics and yes, this time the lights and the hot water in the bathroom worked! There was also a fridge and microwave which is convenient. Also there was free Wifi. This stay was much better than the one before.
So to sum up our experience. It depends on the room you get at this motel so it is not consistent. I recommend that if you request another room if available if you end up with the ones near the office which seem to be the worst ones. The ones far away or in the separate building seem to be in better shape.
Would I recommend this place? Not really unless you like to gamble and take a chance you get a good room. They need to make all their rooms the same. I mean, all we really need is a clean bed and hot water for shower. As far as the light, we could have contacted management but at 1 AM it was better to sleep it off and let them deal with it in the morning since we don't want to waste any more time at this place.
