The beds where actually comfy that both my kids slept all threw the night
Breakfast I really didn't think it would just be coffee and donuts
I loved the price and location. Very close to downtown, Casinos, Gondola, lake, CVS, a few fast foods. Owners were really nice, you can tell they are really trying.
The towels, even if they were clean, they had hair remaining. Also second day, when the sheet was exchanged it was stained. Normally i wouldn't care as long as it's clean but it was blood stain.
I booked 2 hotel rooms through booking.com. when we arrived they gave us 1 room that had a separate bedroom with 2 beds and a living room converted to a bedroom with 2 beds so total of 4 beds and 1 bathroom for 8 people. Tried to change it and owner was adamant it is what I requested, eventually the next day she moved us and comped us 1 room but we should have gotten a discount because the first night we only had 1 room and I paid for 2 rooms... plus what if 2 separate independent families booked 1 room each, would they put us together? the owner seemed to no think there was anything wrong with that she did putting all of us in 1 large hotel room with 4 beds rather than complying with my booking of having 2 separate hotel rooms. it was strange she kept arguing with me on her point. Asked for towels and she said they gave enough.. 3 towels for each room. I said we had four people. she said don't take a shower tonight. I'll give you more towels tomorrow.... towels were dingy worn out grey while some were crystal white. inconsistent. didn't even want to use it. they said it came with breakfast.. turns out it was a box of stale donuts, coffee in their lobby the size of a medium sized closet, what fake advertisement. rooms were dingy.. floors were gross. you didn't want to take your shoes off in this place. bed sheets were even worse.. one of the beds had stains on it that looked like blood! see picture.. no kidding. I'm not understanding why the owners even have this place, they obviously should not be in the hoteling business... they know nothing of just little minor things like, can we get extra towel and can you please wash your bedsheets?
The location is super - close to a bunch of restaurants, bars, and Heavenly. The king size bed was fantastic! Room was on the small side, but was quiet and clean.
$20/night fee for pets was not well advertised. "Breakfast" was a pot of coffee and a few pastries.
The proximity of the motel to places to eat and to the mountain was very nice. And the staff were very friendly and available.
Old hotel, including furniture and linens. overpriced for what it is offered. Wireless connection is very bad!
Quiet hotel. Well located. Excellent heater. Very very clean. Will stay again.
No breakfast! Coffee and donuts no good!!
the room was really old and dirty: carpet, dust... and we paid 20$ per night for our dog... he is cleaner than them! the breakfast was coffee and old bagels: it's absolutely not a breakfast, we bought our food for the second morning. the staff was hardly friendly the toilets were stopped up, so we ask for an other room, they didn't have an other room with two bed, so they gave us the key of a king bed room to use the restroom but when we asked to keep the key, they answer: "we have to rent this room"... but "we have to have toilets!!! " They tried to fix the pb during the night. So they awoke us at midnight with the noise they did. Impossible to sleep after that. Terrible night. When we left, no excuse, no discount, nothing.
clean, good wifi (not excellent), big bathroom.. for the cheap price we paid felt like a mansion. Very close to Lake Tahoe (walking distance). I recommend! Would stay here again!
as breakfast they just have the coffee machine in your own room.. weird
I have a 5 year old son who loves his breakfast every morning. Aside from the dirty smelly comforter on the bed that you can tell hasn't been washed in months, the so called "continental breakfast" really had me speechless . These people had no coffee made in the morning and no continental breakfast EXCEPT for an old stale box of donuts that were all wet at the bottom I guess from sitting somewhere for a while. Then the lady brings out a jug of SUNNY DELIGHT ... Seriously?? At 8am your going to bring out a half empty jug of sunny D? Why not just have real Orange juice for the sake of people's health? Super disappointed . I mean SUPER. These people are greedy and inconsiderate
great location, great service, rooms were clean, we booked 7 rooms for our wedding party everyone was happy.
you really cant beat the value.
How close it was to the casinos!
It had a weird smell to the room.
location is not bad
wifi is kinda slow
relax style of motel/room, good price, owner willing to help, room is clean.
Good location. Nice staff. Inexpensive. Clean. Seamed like a safe area. Good wifi and Cable TV.
Pool was empty. Breakfast = donuts and coffee. Heater didn't work. Very old, dated furniture. Same picture above both beds. Lol
Its adjacent to everything stores beach restaurants fast food n casinos
Parking is narrow to maneuver the car. Given an old ripped towels, price is a little higher coz n Reno its already cheaper than yours
Good value for money, good location on the more lively side of Lake Tahoe, clean rooms with fridge/ kettle and wifi
Think we caught the owner on a bad day when we arrived, seemed a bit put out when we asked to see the room, but was very nice on check out.
Clean room. Helpful & friendly owner. Decent location (around 25 minute walk or $10 cab to downtown/stateline).
Loved how the close it was to many restaurants and the beach! Very friendly and attentive staff.
Rooms could use a couple updates, but overall a nice place.
Everything for our needs was clean and available. The staff were very helpful and kind
Never stay here . Staff is very unfriendly . Nothing nice to stay about this place .
Never stay here
Price, Could have Gotten a NICER and Updated Motel for The Same $165.00... It was WAY TO OLD (Needs Updated), Bathroom TOO Small, No Tub, Parking Lot was Not much better than a Dirt lot. (Hell on a Harley Full Dresser) OLD TV. No Place to plug in an iPhone, Refrigerator Could hardly cool my water, NO POOL on a Day when it's 95*+ and No Hot Tub to sooth my Tired Body after a 450 mile ride, And the LIST Goes On....
