Pros: The cozy room with the sana
Off season traveler Pros: Wanted to do a Tahoe trip before the weather turned cold. Was able to afford it after finding a great rate through Kayak. The hotel was simple and cozy and also clean and well kept. Room had new bathroom and the perk of a fridge and microwave. Location was quite close to the lake, attractions and busisnesses. It is easy to find off the main roadway. pretty peaceful overall.Cons: Building is older, so walls are a bit thin. There was no card to put out to decline room service. (I suppose I could have called front desk but didn't bother) Small space, not good for children.
Dirty Pros: Small dirty, poor lighting no amenities tiny shower I can believe I paid $170 for a night at this room. Terrible.
Great Value for the MoneyPros: The room was pretty much as expected: clean, warm and featuring all the amenities listed on their website. The staff was friendly and efficient. It's located right in the center of South Lake Tahoe with easy access to plenty of local restaurants, casinos and hiking spots and is extremely convenient. Most of our destinations were within a mile of the motel.Cons: My only complaint is that some of the bath towels had light stains on them. They were obviously clean and had been washed but it was still a little off-putting considering the quality of the rest of the room.
Pros: It was cheapCons: Staff was rude, room smelled very old, no fan just a heater, bed was not comfortable.
never againPros: NothingCons: everything we had are 1 year old with us we checked in to the room and first they put us behind the trash can so we got in the room and opened the drawer in the room and there were needle Caps so we dident even stay in the room
HorriblePros: Nothing the place was disgusting. Cons: It was zero degrees outside and our heater stopped working as well as our water. We asked for a refund and they said no because it happens when you stay in Tahoe. I'm disputing hi now but recommend finding a different place that won't treat you like an animal in the dead of winter when you wake up at 6am seeing your own breathe and shivering.
Good for a stay on a budgetPros: The staff was polite and curteous, they accommodated my pet even though they didn't have to. The room wasn't anything special but it was nice and cozy, it had its own heater, refrigerator and microwave. The location was great, a couple blocks away from Safeway and Ihop and about 1 1/2 miles away from Heavenly. Good hotel if you're budget conscious.Cons: The carpet was damp (most likely from a problem in the foundation as there were minor lumps in the flooring under the carpet). The walls were very thin, we could hear people in the room across the hall from us talking clear as day and the room above us had loud squeaky floors in certain places but overall good little hotel for the weekend if you're on a budget.
Better than expectedPros: For a cheap one night stay, this place was perfect. Close to everything in Tahoe, easy to get in and out. Cons: Like other reviews have mentioned, the place looks like it was last renovated in the early 80s and it isn't particularly clean, so I wouldn't recommend it if that matters to you
Location was great but the rooms not in good conditionPros: The location was great. Cons: The rooms were not in good condition.
Clean, cheap, and great locationPros: - Clean
- Good Location
- Microwave/refrigerator in room
- My room was at the back of the parking lot and was very quiet
Cons: - Could hear next-door TV through wall (bring earplugs)
Pros: good enough for the money. no frills, but for staying close to skiing without breaking the bank, it gets the job done.
