Tahoe City Inn
Ranked #4 of 5 Tahoe City B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 13, 2009

We stayed at the Tahoe City Inn for two nights in August. I can understand some of the other comments about it being a bit tired, but it is not pretending to be a glossy 4 star hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was a good size, and was clean with TV, mini fridge and microwave. Yes the rooms overlook the car park, but so what? At night you have the blinds closed, and during the day you will be out on the lake or surrounding area.
We were there for the weekend, so were able to take advantage of the free breakfast, and it was fine. Teas, Coffee, juices, bread, bagles, muffins cereal and fruit. Remember its free, and I have stayed at other places where a paid for breakfast has been pretty similar.
Location is great, walk out the front and you are on the Tahoe City main street , and out the back a walk across a car park brings you to the lake.
Next door is a Safeway, so you can pick up provisions easily.
TIP: A lot of the prices in Safeway are discounted if you hold a club card, but at first we assumed that we could not qualify as we are from UK. We asked, at the till, and no problem, just put your name and contact number on a form, and they hand over the club card. Believe me it can make a big difference to what you pay!

We would be happy to stay at the Tahoe City Inn again.
The only negative point that I would make is that there are no plates, cutlery or ceramic cups in the room, just styrofoam beakers and plastic cups. As they are providing a fridger and microwave, its a shame that there is nothing more substantial to eat\drink from

Website search does not do this place justice. Yadira and Nicole were so great and accomodating! The place was clean, romantic and very reasonably priced. The wine and appetizers in late afternoon and continental breakfast in the am were killer! We are going back this weekend!

We arrived very late, or rather early, to Tahoe City. Thanks to the new owner, John, we were able to check in at 1:00 a.m. We had a delightful sleep on a very comfortable bed
and were greeted with good coffee and breakfast which we enjoyed while looking onto the very blue lake on a gorgeous day. The high altitude air was fresh and crisp smelling of pine trees. The drinking water was cool and delicious. Rosies Cafe was recommended by John and we dined there on several occasions. Tahoe City is a beautiful city; we felt very well taken care of during our stay. Next time, I will enjoy a bubble bath in the interesting jacuzzi tub!

We had made a reservation at the Tahoe City Inn and then read of few reviews from earlier this year and last and were worried...we called back and the owner answered the phone and told us they bought the hotel, repainting the whole place, replaced all the beds, added new TV's and made the storage space into a lounge with views of the lake.

Well, we were so glad we gave it a try. It's a great place to stay in Tahoe, centrally located, nice friendly people, and for the price, you can't go wrong.

I Stayed at the Tahoe city inn recently and had the best time of my life there. The staff was excellent and the free breakfast in the morning was just the icing on the cake for me. The view was unforgettable though especially at night during the sunset. It has a cozy feel to it. small town vibe but its very welcoming. I most definitely will be returning sooner than i thought.

I would definitely recommend the Tahoe City Inn to a friend. It was a nice, cozy place to stay. The location is great, in walking distance to the lake and lots of shops. I really enjoyed my time there. The staff was wonderful! I will definitely be making another trip soon!
