We stayed at the Tahoe City Inn for two nights in August. I can understand some of the other comments about it being a bit tired, but it is not pretending to be a glossy 4 star hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was a good size, and was clean with TV, mini fridge and microwave. Yes...

Website search does not do this place justice. Yadira and Nicole were so great and accomodating! The place was clean, romantic and very reasonably priced. The wine and appetizers in late afternoon and continental breakfast in the am were killer! We are going back this weekend!

We arrived very late, or rather early, to Tahoe City. Thanks to the new owner, John, we were able to check in at 1:00 a.m. We had a delightful sleep on a very comfortable bed and were greeted with good coffee and breakfast which we enjoyed while looking onto the very blue lake on a gorgeous day. The high altitude...

I Stayed at the Tahoe city inn recently and had the best time of my life there. The staff was excellent and the free breakfast in the morning was just the icing on the cake for me. The view was unforgettable though especially at night during the sunset. It has a cozy feel to it. small town vibe but its...

I would definitely recommend the Tahoe City Inn to a friend. It was a nice, cozy place to stay. The location is great, in walking distance to the lake and lots of shops. I really enjoyed my time there. The staff was wonderful! I will definitely be making another trip soon!

We just stayed at this motel for the Fourth of July weekend. It was awful! To start with, they did not have our reservation when we called the night before. We were supposed to have two rooms. They said that they had a "suite" available if we would like it. Since it was the night before and there weren't going...

We are sorry to hear you were disappointed with your stay, but we appreciate your input for future reference. Our Jacuzzi tubs are a fun and quirky perk to our rooms, although we understand they are not for everyone. We do offer rooms with a standard standing shower as an alternative. Our weekend breakfast was enhanced in mid June to...

This is the first time that TripAdvisor has really let me down. I usually agree with the consensus opinion, but not with this property. I cannot understand why this lodging received such a high ranking. It's inexpensive, but not a good value. Our Deluxe King room (#19) in this former "Adult Motel" featured a large pink heart shaped tub adjacent...
