If you're looking for a place near Lake Tahoe, this is in the vicinity, though you will not be able to see Lake Tahoe from the motel. Supposedly, there is a way to access Lake Tahoe, though it was not clear at all. For $40, though, it was a fine stay! The front desk staff was fine, the room was...

I was passing through town by myself and wanted a cheap room within walking distance of Stateline. This Motel worked very well for my needs. It is older, but clean enough. The room was not fancy but everything worked including the small fridge. It also included a very basic but free breakfast. If you need clean and cheap, with safe...

I found this a great and convenient place to stay as it was so easy to access the Gondola to Heavenly mountain. Everything was within close proximity and the room was warm, clean and tidy. Front desk staff were very friendly and accommodating, as i had to leave my stuff when checking out, to go snowboarding then come back later...

We have recently returned from the Big Pines after staying there for 2 weeks whilst Snowboarding. The room on the second floor in the annexe was a reasonable size with good closet for snowboards and equipment. It also gave us everyhing we needed: fridge, microwave, coffee maker, TV and was clean with daily maid service. The motel is very handy...

This isn't the most glamorous of motels but its what I thought it would be. The decor was outdated, nothing fancy but it was clean. I really didn't plan on spending a lot of time in the room so it was perfect for the price. We could walk to both the gondola at Heavenly and the casino. It was an...

I have reviewed this hotel before. They have really clean rooms and a very nice staff. The location is perfect. I come to SLT for business all the time and stay in the lodging by Heavenly because the prices are so much better. The truth about this location is, if you want a big, clean room with a coffee maker...

There's a ton of motels all located in the same area. Its not a bad location, close to the strip of casinos and the beach. The pool was in utter disuse, and the room wasn't too spacious. But hey, for a last minute bargain, not bad.

this a good hotel on the border of CA and NV - perfect place if you want to gamble at Harrah's. The room was clean, but the bed was squeaky. Good if you want to stay only for a couple of nights. THe breakfast was good. Overall it was a comfortable stay.
