First time to South Lake Tahoe and decided to stay at Paradice Motel based on the great reviews and ratings on tripadvisor. Our stay exceeded all expectations primarily because of the above and beyond service provided by the wonderful family that owns the lodge. My friends and I were treated like family as soon as we stepped in the front office, even though it was our first time in Lake Tahoe and flew thousands of miles from Houston, TX.
The owners immediately informed us of all the local activities in the area. All of their suggestions were great and we enjoyed all of them. They cleaned and organized our rooms every morning, and even provided us with local newspapers describing activities going on in the area. They gave me an ice pack to heal my battle scars from the slopes. They gave us goodie bags with granola bars and water before our very early departures our last morning. They made reservations at restaurants that don't normally take reservations, and then gave us a 10% coupon for the restaurant which saved us $30. These are only a few examples of the wonderful service we received at Paradice.
The rooms are very warm and cozy. Amenities are new and clean. Beds are very comfortable. TV and ipod dock work great. Anything we needed, we asked for and promptly received (iron, towels, etc.) Also, plenty of power outlets which was nice.
The motel itself is in a great location. We were dropped off by a shuttle at Harvey's Casino and it was a five minute walk to Paradice. Also a five minute walk to The Gondola and the village of shops that surrounds it. Bars and casinos are just a five minute walk away. Everything we wanted was a five minute walk away.
Overall, I highly recommend staying at Paradice Motel. We fell in love with the owners and will never forget the unmatched hospitality they showed us during our stay. They definitely set a wonderful tone for the trip as the rest of the local Tahoe people were very friendly and fun. Definitely going back in the near future.
