    Great location

    It was a nice place. It was small but perfect for a couple stay in. The king size bed was perfect and super comfortable. Loved the bathroom especially the shower. The shower head had great water pressure. Having a fridge was also useful for bringing along any drinks to store while on the trip. I also loved how it was within walking distance of everywhere we wanted to go. I'd definitely stay at this place again.

    Location x3

    Excellent location, easily walk to Heavenly gondola, beach, shopping and restaurants, groceries, and casinos. Definitely an older property, exterior room entry, no view, but a good block off of the main drag so nice and quiet. Staff all very knowledgeable and friendly. Pool closed, no public gathering area, and minimal breakfast, assume due to pandemic. Regarding room comfort, very clean, nice size bathroom area, good working small fridge, the bed was comfy but the foam pillows not, very small table and hard chairs for sitting - all in all more than adequate for sleeping but not very comfy for just hanging out.

  • 6.0.Good

    Stayed 3 times, this time not happy at all.

    I had stayed with this hotel 2 times. this is my third. This hotel winter time is just over $100.00. Summer $150. up to $160.00 the most I was so surprise that it cost me $268.00 per night this time almost a $thousand for 3 nights. Towels and bedsheet not change for 3 days. no lotion, shampoo, no coffee, microwave not working properly. I did stay even it was expensive bcuz I was thinking they upgraded the inn still the same. This time not happy at all. I have a free night with hotel.com. It was not accepted when I booked online.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Very poor 'Continental Breakfast'.

    The room was average. It was confirmed that a continental breakfast will be provided. But they have just provided a coffee and muffin. I never had such a 'Continental breakfast before. The reason I have selected this hotel was due to the reason that Hotel.com has assured breakfast. It is better not to mention this hotel as 'Breakfast included'.

    Nice hotel, with great staff

    The staff at the lobby was excellent, very friendly and helpful. Rooms were okay, and offered good TV, mini fridge, and other useful things. Exterior of hotel needs some slight work, some of the stair steps don’t look too safe. Pool was closed, but it was nice that they offered beach passes, however they were for purchase only.

    Saturday night booking. Last minutes. The price does not match the quality of the place.

    Not bad

    Nice place to stay during the busy summer season in Lake Tahoe. Had a few issues with the room but the staff took care of it immediately. Good location and freindly helpful staff.

    Clean, Quiet, Friendly, Convenient

    The room was clean and quiet. The front desk gave great recommendations on local spots to eat away from the crowds. We were disappointed that the pool and spa were not open. Short walking distance to Nevada.
