Let me start out by saying I feel bad for writing a poor review, because the staff/owners? were very nice, and yes, the yellow lab was awesome.
We chose this hotel because it was not the cheapest and it looked not too bad for South Lake Tahoe when we drove by, and it had "free breakfast"
Again, check-in and the staff were wonderful, and the property was centrally located and easy to find.
When we opened our room it instantly smelled like smoke and when we closed the door, we knew we were going to be able to hear everything and everyone around the property. You could see light around the whole door, and the window was an old glass shutter window, haven't seen that style of window in years.
There was a small coffee maker, clock, and microwave, all unplugged so we had to set the time. Oh ya and there are only 2 outlets for the 3 appliances. The description of the room listed a refrigerator, but there was none. had a nice closet space with a good iron.
The lights in the room were dim, and one of them didn't work, while one of the other lights was tricky to turn on, There were no outlets by the bed, and the one above the desk didn't work, the other outlet was taken up by the microwave and clock, and the last outlet was operated by the switch next to the door.
The bathroom was small, the shower was even smaller with a low and very old shower head, I opted to not even take a shower. The toilet was small, old and the paint chipping.
We were in an upper room, and I think the person below us was living there, he had a fight with someone and she stormed out at about 3AM, and it seemed a group of people also came back and was continuing the party a few rooms over around 2 or 3AM, but its South Lake Tahoe and to be expected especially at a cheap hotel.
Next time I am in South Lake I will choose a better hotel, or just stay in Reno!
