“great place great service n staff”
Reviewed 28 March 2012

I found this place last sept and was very impressed by the staff and how there is always work going on with this motel.. they were very freindly so i came back last week and was pleasantly surprised the manager is awsome very nice guy and they upgraded me no charge. the breakfast food is good its all you need and for the price its the best , i love the quick in n out that you get with a small motel over the hassle of the big casinos.

this place is quiet gem of south lake tahoe and a true find i will come back for many years.

Pros: Once you get to the room, it's ok and the sheets seemed very clean. It had a 1970's feel. The best part was the wall heaters, without forced air. The room was nice and toasty when we arrived. The staff was friendly.

Cons: The sauna must have been built over 50 years ago and not cleaned very often since. The stairs up to the room had dirt collecting around the banister bases. And the wifi didn't work. The receptionist said the wifi was beyond maximum capacity because of the holiday weekend.

Thank you for posting your online review. We work very hard to insure our guests are pleased at the value and cleanliness we offer. I will look into your observations of the hallways and sauna. I'll be honest with you... when the storms hit up here in Tahoe the wind swirls around our hallways and buildings at 50+ mph carrying everything in with it. We expense alot of cleaning labor here for this reason, regardless after every storm we see an increase in dust and dirt in our public areas. Thank you again and please call us directly or visit our website for our guaranteed lowest prices.

We stayed for four nights here. It's a good value for the money. Very no frills...the spa isn't great but it does work ok, the sauna takes a while to heat up, but still very good for such a good price...nothing fancy but they do a good job here.

Thank you for your very honest review. We love to read pleasant down to earth reviews like yours. It's true, if your looking for a 4-5 star resort experience then you should consider staying at one or our local casino hotels, however, if you want to save money on lodging and spend it on food and recreation, then perhaps we are just what your looking for. We offer very clean, comfortable and convenient lodging at the very best prices in our area.

The Best Tahoe West is great hotel for ski trips. The location is excellent - Pine Avenue is quiet with little traffic noise. It is walking distance to casinos, restaurants, and the Heavenly Gondola. Best Tahoe West has always been a great value - good prices for a descent motel. They have many other amenities such as breakfast, a laundry room, exercise room. I keep coming back.

Thank you for your very kind and direct to the point review. It's true, people like to be near the casinos, Gondola, beach and marina. They want the location and they want value and that's why they choose us. We offer convenience, great service and low room rates which is how we became popular.

This hotel is a great value. First off, we stayed here for a weekend trip to Heavenly. Three nights at the hotel and two days on the mountain. If your looking for the Ritz, don't stay here. If you would rather spend money on lift tickets and food then stay here.

Pros:
Good location to Heavenly and casinos
Free breakfast
Free in room wifi
Free washer and dryer
Free parking
Helpful staff

Cons:
Uncomfortable bed...mattress is like 6 inches thick
Very basic room, small TV
Can hear other guests in hallway

Lastly, let me reiterate that this hotel is a great value if you don't plan on being in the room a lot. Also if you are coming to the area to gamble, then this place is probably a good deal and cheaper than staying at the casino.

Thank you very much for your candid summary. Our excellent location on the Heavenly bus route and value add ons like our free expanded continental breakfast, free guest laundry and fitness rooms, free wifi and helpful staff are routinely mentioned as our guest favorites. I wish you had come by the front desk and let us know your thoughts about the bed in your room. We would have offered to show you a similiar room or perhaps a free upgrade would have been in order. It's too bad that most complaints we receive originate from noise of other guests. We have installed signage throughout our hotel for guests to respect other guests right to quiet but it's often ignored. This time of the year with ski boots and sporting gear hauled up and down stairs there is often some associated noise. Thank you again for your compliments and please call us directly or visit our website for our guaranteed lowest prices.
