This is a nice and clean motel across from Lake Tahoe. Nothing spectacular but very clean and nice. They serve a continental breakfast in the morning consisting of a fresh waffle, cereal, toast, fresh fruit, oatmeal, a hard boiled egg, and pastries. And of course tea and coffee. This is served in the front lobby. They also have a small...

Only a one night stay before checking into a condo for a short ski vacation. Bottom line, we will be back and highly recommend it. Do yourself a favor and pay a little extra for the king view room. While just across the street from the lake, the views were outstanding from your sliding door and balcony. The room was...

We arrived at this motel on a Sunday evening in February as the snow started to fall. By morning, there were at least 2 feet of snow outside our door! The inn-keepers were vigilant about removing the snow from the walkways and parking lot. On our 2nd night, as it continued to snow and blow outside, the power went out...

The lodge is not large but it's actually our preference to stay in smaller, more personal places. This one was exactly that. The rooms have been updated and include a microwave and fridge in a separate area with a second sink, and their continental breakfast is a step up with fresh fruit sliced that day (even in March the mixture...

Stayed here last minute and had a great experience. Rooms were clean and updated. Fair price. Complimentary Breakfast. Friendly Staff. We would stay here again. Most importantly it was quite. It is right across the street from beach access.

This place looks old but we were surprised to find that this is actually an amazing inn! Stayed at room 10. Two queen beds, fireplace, large TV, microwave, fridge, free breakfast, organic bath amenities! We highly recommend this place. Will definitely stay here again.

They have a cancellation policy which I understood. We had to cancel after the deadline because of a snow storm coming in. Had we stayed there, we would not have been able to get over the mountain back to Sacramento to catch a flight. The lady I spoke with said she would make the only King Lakeview room available so...

This is a good inexpensive hotel that is kept clean but is a little older with the smell of mildew here and there. There is often water on the indoor outdoor carpet that comes into the on ramp into the rooms. There is generally a good breakfast served. We did not get the room with a fireplace but I would...

We enjoyed the nice breakfast and friendly atmosphere. Situated right across the street from a lakeside park. Steak house is next door. Pool was closed as we were there during the off season but we enjoyed the hot tub. Our rooms were very clean and the beds comfortable. The inside wasnrecently updated but they kept the great vintage street sign.
