“Feels like going home!!”
Reviewed May 7, 2012 via mobile

I've been staying at the Green Lantern for five years, two years of this was every weekend. The family has been more than accommodating to any request I've ever had. The hotel is older and does show the normal wear and tear but it is clean and very well maintained! If you have any requests or need advice for hidden treasures off the tourist trap they will gladly share!!! I don't understand people's complaints, you are paying $30 a night most every weekend, you aren't going to have your own bellhop people.. Take it for what it's worth a great hotel that's in the best location possible! Can't wait to go back!

This place is well located and priced right.
It's about due for a tear-out and re-do, but it's still ok for the price.
Maybe if they just repaired the sheetrock, stopped the shower from flooding the bathroom floor, and refurnished it, it would be a lot better.
Oh, and those heating units are NOISY!

Room Tip: The rooms in the older section have very noisy heating units. Ask about a room that is quieter.

Not perfect but I have stayed there for 25 yrs. I have family there and this Motel is close to everything anyone needs. It has keys to the private beach with a a very nice place to eat on the beach. What you dont get in the room, you get outside of it.
I would honestly check this one out for yourself.

Room Tip: They also have a small home for rent too. Ask about it. I think it has room for 6.

I Dont know how this place is still open for service , we arrived at 3pm TAHOE , THERE was beer bottles in front of ever room. there was 10-15 ppl.. drinking in the parking lot., we checked into our room #110 there where stains on all the walls,from food or some kind of body fluids, the room states no smoking, yet there are ppl. standing in there door ways, smoking***and that would be the good part, ... the worse part, is that when we checked into our room #110 in the bathroom there is a 2 X 2 board nailed in the bathroon roof, then i seen that there was water pouring from the roof into our shower from the toilet / shower of the room above us.and the mang. told us there nothing he could do. they were full , but he might be able to let us into another room to shower,and go back to our room to sleep.
there were ppl. out side the rooms drinking until 3am in the morning,

Room Tip: dont do it, this place is not a good motel

Greenlanterntahoe, Manager at Green Lantern Inn & Suites, responded to this review, October 14, 2011
This guest stayed at the motel during memorial day weekend. Late in the evening they mentioned that the water from the shower upstairs is leaking into the shower stall downstairs. It was already late in the evening so our maintenance person had already left for the day. We offered to give the guest full refund for the reservation which the guest declined. Eventually we managed to find them a different room upstairs. After they moved into the new room I personally called them and they mentioned that everything is fine in this new room. When they came by the lobby to checkout the next morning I apologized for the inconvenience for the night prior & they again mentioned that everything was fine in the new room. Even though the guest stayed in the room for the night and did mention the next morning that room was OK, they been asking to get a full refund for that night. I don't see a reason why they should get a full refund after they spent the night & mentioned twice upon asking that everything is fine in the new room.

After booking online and seeing the ridiculously low price I expected little more than a tent and was pleasantly surprised. While it is an older property and our room was overfurnished and on the run down side, it was spotlessly clean, the staff was very friendly, hard working and helpful. The big surprise was in-room coffee. (A blow dryer would have been nice but for the price I am not complaining.)

The bed was actually not bad. I've stayed in 5 star places that had far worse mattresses (and no in-room coffee!). We slept well, it was warm, quiet and close enough to walk to casinos, restaurants and the lifts at Heavenly. Their ice machine was amazing and they had a "like new" coin op washer and dryer onsite for guest use. They were quick to plow the parking lot and salt the walkways after it snowed or thawed and froze over.

This is a modest place definitly not for hotel snobs, but perfectly adequate for a family or couple looking for a weekend retreat to a gorgeous destination - I'd say anyone who doesn't plan to spend their vacation inside a motel room or all their money on a fancier place (save it for some fun in the casinos!). They offered a continental breakfast too - wish I'd seen that before we were checking out! :0)

Central to every thing in Lake Tahoe south. Our room was very average but
reasonable for the price. We stayed there out of season so it was very quite. The bed was comfortable enough for a good night sleep.
