    Cleanli and Basic

    Like most lodges in Tahoe this is a motel. Door open directly to the outside. There is a nice open hanger area in the room, good for drying mitts and hanging jackets and snow pants if you are on a family or friends ski trip. Room was cleanli, no frills, straight up housing, no breakfast offered (as advertised). If you are looking for a very basic room for skiing and hanging up your gear, this is your spot.

    Good place to stay

    It was nice and clean. Only downfall was I needed 1 more pillow. There was enough for 1 pillow per person. (4) and the other than that I would stay again.

    Good location. Went to a pizza restaurant down the street and a breakfast restaurant that was walking distance. Both had great food. The room was decent somewhat updated. But the bathroom area definitely needed a renovation. Good for one night with our toddler. Easy check in and out.

    Clean and quiet place to stay on the edge of South Lake Tahoe. Easy access to everything as the town is small and outdoors adventure locations nearby. The hotel is a little spartan but does include a microwave and mini-fridge. The bed was very comfortable and the heater worked well.
