Central location.

Pros: Convenient location.
Cons: The whole building needs to be improved, no air conditioning, door's dead bolt broken, leaking faucet.
Location: Variety of restaurants and malls at walking distance, beach close by.
To close to the street with heavy traffic, very old hotel, not kept up to date.

Of the budget hotels in S Lake this one is of the cleanest. The owners do not tolerate the trash that often comes with a budget hotel and it is peaceful. Clean sheets and a good location make this hotel one of my stops on my travels.

Clean+shower for overnight during ski/board trip.

Cons: Lots more wall pegs for hanging out damp snow gear.
Location: Perfect spot to get to Heavenly Resort.
Fine for very short stays when you're out skiing/boarding all day. Very kind, informative and friendly desk team/family.

Pros: Location was good
Broken mirrors, dirty sheets, holes from cigarette buds Dirty floor. What else would you expect from a motel, right? But not for the price

Will never stay here again

The man at the desk was rude when I spoke to him on the phone and just as rude in person. Not to mention he wrote my credit car number down on a piece of paper, I definitely don't trust that!

Decent room, very angry hotel staff

Cons: vacuum the floor, change the staff, you should feel welcome where you stay not like you are an inconvenience.
When we arrived (late but with notice that it would be late due to an incident at another hotel) the night staff was very abrupt and rude. Again when we left and I turned the key in, very abrupt and rude. The housekeeping was outside and looking at me as though I were going to steal the tv from the room, she kept peeking in the room while we were loading up the car. That being said the room was somewhat clean (I don't think it had been vacuumed in a while though) one of the beds was very comfortable the other hard as a rock. You get what you pay for though and I was toooo tired to find someplace else.

Happy I woke up safe!

It was the cheapest place in Tahoe and come to find was that way for a reason.  If u just want a place to crash, and need it cheap... It's ok.
