I want to start this review by saying that I usually stay in non-budget hotels so I am used to a certain level of comfort. I chose this hotel for a Saturday night in Lake Tahoe, where I was staying at Harrah's on Sunday and Monday for $50 a night. I got this property for $42 which is a very good deal for a Saturday there. I also read the reviews and felt it was worth a shot.
The pros of the stay were the price and the location near the beach and walking distance to the casinos. However, the cons outweighed the pros in this case. The room was very small, the carpet very dirty, and the mattress torn in places. The walls were thin and I could plainly hear conversations on both sides of me and I could also hear the traffic out front.
I had joined their "club" prior to my visit which gave me a 5% discount and a supposed upgrade which I clearly did not get. In fairness, the front desk clerk allowed me to look at another room on the other side of the road but it wasn't any better.
They do offer a continental breakfast of waffles and coffee in the lobby, however, I did not partake.
If price is a serious concern, then maybe this is the place. However, it is surrounded by other small lodgings, and I would pick a different place next time.
