We stayed here for 3 nights during our 3 week tour of northern California and chose it because of the good reviews on Tripadvisor. It has some good points - the room is well equipped with fridge, microwave and coffee maker and the price and location are good for Lake Tahoe. However it has a few problems: we phoned ahead to book our room and agreed $75 plus tax per night. On arrival, after a long drive, we were told that the price of our 3rd night (a Friday) was to be $105 plus tax, take it or leave it. At that late stage finding alternative rooms for a Friday would not have been easy so we felt we had no choice. No apology was given for the rate hike. The room was an average size, the decor a bit tired and it smelt a bit of old dog. The shower cubicle was peeling and the toilet flush broke. To be fair this was repaired on the day we reported it and we were given a $10 discount - not enough to match the price increase - and were told that the bathroom is due to be renovated. The complimentary continental breakfast was basic with the same prepackaged danishes appearing every day. There are some nice individual touches here but it needs some updating.
