Dirty!!! Barely any parking
Great location Friendly staff
Little seating for breakfast
Our handicapped room was well maintained, clean and well laid out. Bathroom was huge and is great for wheelchair or walkers.
Excellent, helpful staff. Close to the lake and activities
location was perfect for what I needed to do. Value is good considering peak time in Tahoe and most places were $60 to $80 more a night in the same area.. One night was enough.
New bedspread and paint.
Dirty carpet. Slow draining shower. Tiny sink with barely no counter space. Mildew in shower stall. Claustrophobic shower stall. One toaster for whole hotel.
Had a great stay manager was great had parking for our Harley trike, trailer and truck very secure at property.
It was next to CVS and Heidi's. I also liked the bed.
Not enough parking for all of the guests, it was a cat and mouse fight to get a parking place. If you were unable to get a parking place in the parking lot you had to find parking outside of the establishment, which I really bad becauce to get a parking space was basically not available anywhere. So we had to park way down the street and wald to our motel, at least 2 blocks. And we had a disabled person in the ground so that made it even worse. There was only 2 handicap parking stalls, and one of them was being blocked by a Cadillac without a ADA Plate or sticker. All in all it was an ok experience. Also they need to have staff that are friendly and helpful, which was not the case.
We liked the location being close to Lake Tahoa and free beach access. The 2nd floor rooms had an outside bench which was nice to sit out. Parking was sufficient. We would stay again.
Walking through the other hotels to get to the beach. Small area for breakfast and the lack of choices.
The young woman at counter didn't know what she was doing. Told me I would have to wait til end of day for cash IF indeed I was charged twice. Meanwhile, I was out $215 of vacation money and insulted by cashier. Told her that it would be nice to have a little compassion, such as an apology for the trouble, after all she is in customer service. She responded with "I would rather give u results than an apology." Thankfully manager called me back and refunded cash to me after the hassle. Still left bad impression but still enjoyed time there.
It was quiet in a good location .overall cleanliness an 8
Television reception was poor , picture cut in and out ,and bathrooms are very small .
Parking was tight. Room was clean but very low budget.
We didn't like much besides the great location. The price was also good considering The location, but I guess it's true that you get what you pay for!
Where do I start! The Wi-fi was hit & miss, the pool had no working umbrellas & dirty shorts & underwear scattered, the bed pillows were the size of small throw pillows, & they only have us enough coffee for 1 single serve cup when we had a reservation for 2 people! We called 2 weeks ahead for early check-in since it was our anniversary wknd & we couldn't get in til after check-in! We won't ever stay here again.
The proximity to the lake is great. Midweek rates make this a good place to stay at Tahoe for the money
The parking spaces are narrow and somewhat limited. We arrived back at our room after 3 in the afternoon one day and our room hadn't been cleaned yet
We liked the friendly staff, the spacey room, your pool, the hot tub, & the comfortable beds.
The shower and toilet are very low.
Wi-Fi strength and speed.
Other guest can be a little noisy when coming back to their rooms late at night, but its the casinos getting them all worked up.
The office immediately took care of any complaints & was very helpful & hospitable also the room was awesome. Was very satisfied!
the handicap shower and parking were great. the shower was a walk in shower with a bench and a double shower head for use while sitting. the parking was right outside the room, not 1/2 way across the parking lot.
dark rooms and the bed was uncomfortable to us.
Central to everything and great value at this time of the year
Great location and good view to the lake!
You can hear the neighbors when they come and go.
convenient location on beach side of S. Lake Tahoe BL; easy access to beach and Tahoe Queen dock; no parking hassles; Heidi's Pancake House right in front; CVS drug store next door; buy tickets to Gondola and Tahoe Queen at the front desk to save money and avoid the lines at the site.
Couch felt old
Great location, Great value, Great beds Clean Very helpful staff. Thank you Chuan
Access to beach was awkward due to building in front. All of the disposable plates, cups, cutlery
We enjoyed our stay in beautiful Lake Tahoe! Our stay at Howard Johnson was most pleasant as the staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was immaculate, and we especially liked the bathroom layout. Also, the continental breakfast added a nice touch. The proximity to the lake, to hiking trails, and restaurants was great. We enjoyed our walks and didn't want to leave. We definitely plan on returning to Lake Tahoe and H. Johnson. Thanks for making our experience a positive one!
Would have been nice for our room to have had a microwave. Other than that, no complaints.
