Needed somewhere close to the "Y" to stay for a few nights while spending our days at Meeks Bay. This motel was perfect. It is small and simple, but clean. No frills, but everything we needed PLUS a refer, microwave and coffee pot. And you can tell there is effort made to keep things up to date (no orange shag...

I had a great experience at this motel. I took my son for skiing lessons and was a little worried what kind of motel it might be, before arriving. But rest assured, its completely a family friendly motel. Lady and her husband at the reception were very friendly and gave very good service. Though some of the interiors in the...

Great place for the price. If you are looking for a place that has all the bells and whistles, then this isn't the place for you. If you are looking for a place to sleep, shower, cook, etc on a budget, then this is definitely the place for you. The room was clean, the bed was very comfortable, there were...

Didn't expect much since it was an older place to stay. Was surprised to find the room clean and had a nice update to it. The lady at the desk was very nice and very helpful. I had asked directions to our destination and she promptly ran out to get her son to tell us how to get there. For...

After a nightmare encounter with roaches and dangerously squeaky floorboards at another inn, this inn/motel was a blessing. The lady who owns this establishment is amazingly hospitable and accommodating, quickly getting us a room at a competitive price for 2 nights in a room with a kitchen and a king-sized bed. Everything was comfortable and clean, no complaints about the...

Stayed for one night and did not expect too much, based on the price and location. But was very pleasantly surprised. Room was a good size for a couple, with a comfortable king bed, ensuite and small area with a bar fridge and microwave. The woman at the counter was very friendly and gave us helpful information about where to...

Stayed for a couple of nights over a weekend in May 2015. Had a room on the top floor which was very quiet. The beds were both big and very comfortable but the rest of the room and the bathroom was average. We had a small kitchen which was fine except that it had not been cleaned for a very...

Free WiFi did not work for more than a few minutes at a time. Very low water pressure. Air conditioning marginal but luckily Tahoe weather was in low 80's most of the time. This would be an OK motel for $60 a night. For $120 we expect more.

My dad and I stayed here for one night to be close to the hospital when my mom unexpectedly had a medical emergency. I had read some of the reviews for this motel and others and decided to drive around and look at the ones I was interested in. This was the first one I looked at and I booked...

  • The remains of the other closet hold a small fridge and microwave
  • Apparently they cut one room in two. That's the half door into what's left of the closet.
