This was my 3rd time back and my worse experience to date. I booked a 1 bedroom suite for 3 days. First issue, the toilet clogged the first night or shall I say at 5:30am the first morning. My husband walked to Raley's and bought a plunger rather than call the front desk. Being close to Raley's is a huge plus. The beds need updating, the fridge barely kept our milk cold, and I had to buy a bottle of frebreeze to mask the old musty carpet smell. But the worse thing by far had to be the shower. The bathtub had chip marks that left black dots in the tub, the shower pressure felt more like a slow dribble that would bounce back and forth between cold to hot. Sorry but a hotel shower shouldn't be affected by someone three units down flushing the toilet. This place needs serious updating! The free breakfast is ok, the game room no longer has a ping-pong table, just a pool table ($1/game) and a couple of outdated over priced video games. But you can drink in you there! Its close proximity to stateline, the gondola, and heavenly keep this place in business. It's literally steps from the gondola which means you can throw on your gear, jump on the gondola ($36/pp + lift ticket) and be on the mountain in a matter of 15 min from your hotel. But if you are loooking for a place to stay that isn't reminiscent of your grandmother's house circa 1987, this place is not for you. If you need a cheap place to stay, a step up from Black Jack inn to party and get wasted in...book now!
