It’s a fancy motel. The rooms are much nicer than a typical motel but the size and exterior feel like a motel. Our room was nice quiet and warm but also had a few minor problems. The toilet has flushing issues due to very old interior works. The water would either stay on or never go on. We had to manually move the interval floater. The sink is also very slow and took a long time to drain. Some of the plugs are very loose and things fall out or don’t stay plugged in. Other sockets are fine Finally, none of the snow and ice was cleared from the parking lot so it was very slippery to walk. Seems like a lawsuit waiting to happen.

We were initially fine with the property, it's not smart but had a comfortable bed, towels & robe were decent. We then noticed things like the shampoo dispenser was empty, two dirty socks under bed, light switch didn't operate the light, heating didn't seem to work well. We ventured to the hot tub & found it hot but water was green which wasn't inviting. The office didn't seem to be manned, the lady did call back when we tried the number and was helpful about one thing but we didn't feel like keeping on calling each time we found something else. So overall it was Ok but not much more.

Liked: Cleanliness
The room was tidy and clean. Property very close to food and shopping. Wish they would have let us in the room sooner since it was snowing. Limited TV channels.

Booked two rooms for my family. One of the rooms had zero to no water pressure to wash our hands with while the other one had too much water pressure. We also noticed that the towels we were initially given actually were dirty and had blood stains on them. We had to ask for them to bring us towels about 5 hours later. They also don’t come in and clean the rooms until after you’ve left which is quite annoying. Don’t get a room on the bottom floor because the creaky floors upstairs you will hear all the footsteps. Other than that the location was nice, but I would not stay here again given the price point.

The staff was very friendly. We liked our room but realized that the lamp didn't work. There was also some sand in bathtub too. Overall we were happy with our stay.

Great hotel, and great location
Eveything is good about this hotel, about one mile from city center and gondola. The room I stayed has memory foam beds, which is not my preference, The room is clean, smaller than I expected, however it was not a problem at all, I enjoyed my stay here.

This our 3rd time staying here. It has always been a pleasant experience. The facility is older, as are so many hotels of this type in Lake Tahoe. But they have really worked at making it comfortable and inviting. It is very clean and up to date.
