“Friendly Tahoe Welcome!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

First time visitors to Tahoe, we chose the Paradice Motel because of the tripadvisor reviews and we got more than we bargained for! After a long trip from NJ, the clean comfortable room, with lots of perks, was a very welcome sight to my family of 4. Although we only stayed one night at the Paradice (rental house for the rest of the week), Kathy and Uwe took the time to share with us all the fun things, places, restaurants and gems of Tahoe we should try to hit during our stay. We had the best vacation thanks to all their awesome suggestions. Kathy even called us at home after the trip was over to see how the rest of our vacation went! You do not get that kind of attention anywhere these days. Thank you Kathy and Uwe, I know I will be seeing you again...next time we want to try Tahoe during ski season! XOXO

If you don't need a full kitchen and living area, this is the place to stay in South Shore Tahoe. The owners were everything the past reviewers said. Kathy noticed our bikes on the car and loaned me a map and book with trails to hike and ride. She recommended a wonderful restaurant, Kalani's, within walking distance that was to die for (see reviews for Kalani's), and we had so many welcome gifts, like the fruit, chocolate, cliff bars, perrier water, etc. The room was clean, comfortable and roomy. Yeah, a bit noisy with cars and a bit warm, but convenient to activities of Stateline. A great place to stay!

Your stay was short and sweet but a great dinner and exploring Tahoe on your bikes doesn't get any better than that! Nice way to enjoy your son before he goes off to school. Maholo, Kathy

Looking to crash for one night in South Tahoe and this place was perfect. The owners are the nicest people and willing to go above and beyond to see to it our stay was stress-free. The rooms were clean with a nice tv. Bathrooms were small but very clean and got the job done. Overall it was a great experience.

How special was it to be in Tahoe at an outdoor concert listening to Huey Lewis and Joe Cocker with the whole family?! That was a memory maker! Thank you for sharing your time with us at the Paradice Motel. Aloha, Kathy

The owners of this motel truly exemplify the 'aloha spirit'. They are super friendly and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. They gave us same day reservations, offered suggestions for breakfast and beach locations, and we even got chocolates on our pillows when we returned from dinner. The room decor was tastefully done. The location was great. We even got to meet 'Boo' the resident dog!

The owners couldn't be more welcoming and always went that little extra to make you feel special. The position was great for shops, restaurants and the private beach. Only spent 2 nights en-route from LV to SF but was a great place to chill out.

Yes, it was really that quiet at this sweet little spot on South Shore!
I love a grand hotel room, but was happy to stay here one night as an alternative to the casinos or a huge resort swarming with people during the high season. It was a perfect place to sleep after a great night out at the Lakeside Music Venue. Easy walk to and from, no parking or traffic hassles. Will recommend! Short walk to the lake makes up for no pool.

You've already read about the gracious hosts, the treats, the nice rooms, the good beds, now book it!

Room Tip: Summertime tip...ask for a room with AC! Bring your own ice chest, no mini-fridge.

A last minute walk in. They owners kindly showed us the last available room and then had fresh fruit and bottled water in place by the time we finished the paperwork. They offered several suggestions for dinner and activities. The room was clean and nicely appointed. Chocolates on the pillow when we got home from dinner. The bed was comfy and all the linens were first quality. When we left the next day, the owner gave us a "care package" of more bottled water and a snack for our road trip. You just don't see this kind of service at a chain type hotel!!!

Room Tip: The original Lake Tahoe Brewery is up the street about 5 minutes drive.
