Motel 6 South Lake Tahoe
Ranked #51 of 66 Hotels in South Lake Tahoe
Reviewed July 23, 2010

I've stayed in a lot of hotels. This one seemed looked like an inexpensive but otherwise good choice. Once we checked in, we knew this wasn't the good value that it seems. Rooms are beyond small - two double beds are crammed in with almost no room to walk in. AC is noisy and only marginally effective. No breakfast. WiFi available only with an extra fee. Extremely noisy fan in the bathroom (so bad you'd rather do your business in the dark!). Located on a very busy street that's hard to cross on foot. The few restaurants in the area are not good. All in all, the worst hotel I've been in.

The Room was small, the TV shut off every 60 minutes (I'm assuming on a timer) and the AC didn't get the room very cold...(It was set on a temp control)....not very comfortable on the second floor in the middle of july.

While at this motel the power went off for several hours. During this time my wife and I were prevented from having any use of the room. When I went to the office to seek information the manager said that corporate office had approved full refunds upon check out. Upon checking out the manager was no where around aand there was just one employee issuing refunds. She said the manager told her to just give a $20.00 discount. So while I paid $82.19 for the room on a Sat night, and was unable to use the room for several hours until the power returned, all they issued was a $20.00 refund even though the manager said that corporate office had approved full refunds. I WILL NEVER GO TO THIS MOTEL AGAIN. This is wrong! I filed a complaint for a full refund as I was promised.

Came up to Tahoe for a soccer tournament with our 2 young children. This was a great value, 60$ plus tax. The room was small but clean.Check in and check out was very easy and the staff was friendly. Noise level was fine, we had a room towards the back on the second floor. There is a bike path behind the motel. Also it is a pet friendly hotel.
Good choice for those on a tight budget. The pool also looked fun.

This has got to be the noisiest Motel 6 EVER!!!!!!!!,people talking so loud I can hear their conversation,people running up and down the walk way and trampling like elephants,its ridiculous.
The front desk gentleman,Peter,one nice person,I had some issues and he fixed them promptly and I was satisfied.

The room itself was nice and clean,and rate was reasonable considering that it is a ski area.

Only if it wasn't so noisy,I rather deal with street traffic than people screaming and hollering constantly.

We stayed for 2 nights in this Motel 6 due to no rooms being available in hotels. It was a decent stay - room was small but neat and clean and the place was inexpensive. Not far from anything important in South lake Tahoe. Good deal.
