Very close to several State parks in the South Lake Tahoe area. Room is very clean but no space on the sides of the beds. It seems to be run by a family who is trying to make improvements. Front office is not usually staff. This is not a luxury accommodation but it will do if you only need a place to stay comfortably while you explore the Lake Tahoe area. No free breakfast but there are several American dinners within walking distance of this lodge.

Less comfortabl

It was a near to the many good places but they didn't provide propper stuf. For Ex. We was three in room and we have just two cups for our coffe....! But we booked a room for three adultes. They gave us coffee packets just for one person we have to go back and ask for another one. Main they didn't provide any breakfast, when we ask for that the person sitting on fromt desk said , “ its too ecoensive.” Why u mentioned that when we booked that motel?

A bit funky, but adequate

I checked in about 6 months after making the reservation (for an event that sells out most hotels and motels in the region). An ownership change meant they had no record of the reservation, although they honored the price shown on the printed copy I brought with me. The property is an old-fashioned motel perhaps built in the 1960s. There had been some recent updates, but not necessarily executed with skill. For example there was a modern toilet, but it rocked. The bed and bedding were clean and comfortable.
