Pros: cute room with wood paneling, even on the ceiling. Clean, comfortable, big bed. Iron and small ironing board. Hot water is fast and pressure is strong. Fridge, microwave, coffee maker and decent wifi. Location to downtown is a decent walk, but not horrible. Cons: owner is a bit curt on check-in. Room is small. Towels are like thin dish... More

Stayed only one night...Non smoking room reaked with cigarettes smell everywhere. They didn't offer me another room. Brown pillows from sweat hidden in pillow case. So disgusting. White towels had dirty spots and were rough with hair. Brought all towels for trade and receive more stained towels. Disgust... Carpet transition strips had nails popping up and that was very dangerous.... More

Room was clean, but small. Inside the room is like a log cabin. Bathroom is in dire need of a remodel. Overall not a bad experience and would stay again in a pinch. Free Wi-Fi and ice machine near office.

First time we stayed at this place. All hotels were booked so this was the best of the worst. The outside of the building is kinda deceiving rearguards to the cabin feel of the interior. The room decor reminds me of a place you might rent in Austria. The room was cute and for the most part it was pretty... More

Stayed in the Queen suite. 3 queen beds in the room. The room was clean, clean sheets and towels as well. The duvets are stained, they could use a change. The bathroom was clean, and the water pressure was excellent. Our towels were replaced daily, and housekeeping kept it clean. I requested a room away from the road, so it... More

Hotel owner was rude! I booked online through trip advisor and when I got there with my dogs,(online there's no mention about a $25 fee per dog) instead of using my cheaper booked room and just adding to my bill he booked me a new room, full price. I ended up paying twice as much as I originally thought. When... More

There were so many gross bugs in our bed I looked under our pillow and saw a huge centipede. I flipped up the rest of the covers and saw 3 more bugs. Gross. Besides the nasty bugs in the place where we were supposed to sleep... On the last day, the manager was pounding on our door at 10:50 saying... More

They charged me over five hundred for 3 nights in a tiny room with one queen sized bed because it was the weekend of July 4th. I regretted it as soon as I stepped foot into the office. The lady working was unpleasant with poor english. She threatened, "if I see you bring one more person to your room I... More

Room was clean and bed was comfortable. There is just enough parking for all the rooms (not a very big parking lot) although confirmation email said otherwise. There is no breakfast but wifi is free. Close to many eating joins and the marina.

This was a great hotel. The management are really nice. The ambiance was perfect for lake tahoe! I recommend it to anyone who really wants to enjoy their stay. Nice rustic rooms. We stayed in a 3 room suite. Check it out!
