    Superb

    Cheap motel on the main strip in Lake Tahoe. Motel is clean and comfy. Pool is empty. Motel is across the street from the beach and close to everything.Bed was comfortable. Our room was quiet. There are some long term residents living there but were generally quiet on our stay. Free coffee and donuts at 8am if you want. I would reccomend this motel.

    Good

    The room was clean; the office staff was nice and courteous; air conditioning worked very good. i read previous review after i booked and was horrified. However, either the hotel changed drastically or some people don't know what a bad motel is like. The other reviews were unfair i feel.

    could use better lighting in the room; in room coffee would also be nice since the office did not prepare the complimentary coffee as early as i awake

    The reduced price. Convenient location. Calm place.

    The room needs a serious renovation. Really old-dated not very clean. Given the cheap price we had, it was ok. We asked how much it would cost to stay one more night (friday night compared to a thursday night), the price was doubled because it was a week end night. This quality with the cheap price (week night + Booked.net pricing) was ok but twice the price for the same room is not fine!

    The price was very reasonable.

    The Motel is extremely tired - almost shabby. The room we had was adequate, but interior chairs were stained and the lack of photos of the exterior of the property I found to be very misleading - in fact I was shocked when we arrived, and if the price had not been so reasonable we certainly would not have stayed.

    Very good

    Simple, comfortable budget lodgings The room was right by my parking spot. The bed was comfortable and big. Best of all: the windows really opened!!! And Lord Ganesha was there, which was cool.

    Room upgrades as well as a bigger parking lot.

    The room as well as the hotel itself reminded me of a hotel in a scary movie where everyone dies. We checked in went to the room and within 30 minutes checked out and found another hotel.

    The room was cute and very clean. There was tons of comforts. Like a coffee pot, blow drier,and iron/board. King size bed with extra pillows a big plus, free wi-fi. We loved it. Great deal for the $ we plan to stay again very soon

    Heavy traffic on and off main road to the room.not enough good dinning near by.

    This hotel was highly overpriced for what I got. Two clean beds? Dirty bathroom. Dirty floor. Really disappointed.
