Old, in need of repairs (crumbling walkways) but clean. More road noise than preferred. Office attendants were often out of the office and had to be contacted with the "find handset" button on cordless phone base station. No free wifi, No fitted sheets, good location, less expensive than others, but you get what you pay for.

Just stayed here with my teenage son and his friend. I was a little concerned because as Tahoe lodging goes, this one is really inexpensive: 2 queen beds for $105 a night. We were pleasantly surprised. The room was clean, the bathroom looked like it had been upgraded not long ago. The room had a microwave, refrigerator, and a high...

Came here for a quick 2-night stay for a wedding in the area. We had a few minor issues the first day, but when we notified the manager (Paul) the following day, he fixed everything and was very nice about it. The room was very clean, the water was hot at all hours, and the beds were comfortable. They serve...

My family of four stayed for two night during a ski trip. Convenient to Safeway, restraunts, and ski resorts. It's clean, all the amenities (frig, microwave, coffee, table), wide screen TV, and comfortable. Updated room and bathroom. Only comment is they're trying to protect the hardwood floors from the bed legs and the beds slide away from the wall when...

Room and hotel were as clean as I expected for a place in tahoe city. Great location for playing on the lake or rafting the truckee river The service was ok. The complimentary breakfast was good.

My husband and I were put up at this hotel for the night by my boss. She apologized after we told her what it was like because the online photos are deceiving. We were afraid from the moment we went to check in. My boss had got us a deluxe king room with jacuzzi tub and requested that we be...

I stayed in Tahoe City Inn for two nights in July, the room was not nice. When got home we were bitten all over by bed bugs. It was discusting. When I rang the hotel to complain they said they were sorry and blamed the bites on insects in the forest, but we never in the forest and it really...

I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone, not even to an enemy. When we first opened up the door to our room, it smelled old and moldy, like it hadn't been cleaned or aired out in months. We had the double queen beds and in the room that I was in, the blinds didn't close. So if you were to...

For some reason it's tough to find a bargain place to stay at North Shore Lake Tahoe in the winter - probably because it's ideally located to all the major ski resorts - northstar, squaw, alpine, mt rose, homewood, sugarbowl - to name a few. You can get a nice, clean and quiet place at south lake tahoe for less...
