      A gem for lodging

      Was exceptional. From efficient check in, to clean modern room, to ease of close to room parking. When I mentioned I needed to leave earlier than when breakfast started I was offered my grab and go items immediately. Plenty of ice at ice machine. Nothing wrong with this lodging. Will stay again and recommend to others. Great location too as casinos are a 5 minute walk away,

      To be an older motel in the area. the room was very clean, staff was kind and accommodating. The beds were a little firm for me, but they were good quality and I slept fine. Perfect area within walking distance of shopping, dining, recreation and Nevada casino hotels.

    • 6.0.Good

      The room was clean and the place was quiet. My only complaints are that I thought the bed was hard and there was no maid service for 3 days. I was not told that our room would not be clean and we would not get new towels unless we went to the front office which I had to wait for two other people to check in first which was about 30 minutes. Otherwise, I felt safe and it was very quite.

    • 8.0.Very good

      It was decent for the price.

      Arrived and checked in. Got our stuff up the stairs to our room and unfortunately our keys didn't work. Went back down stairs to get em fixed but the guy working the front desk took a break at that exact moment so waited around a few mins but he didn't come back. It was late and we hadn't had dinner yet so I drug all of our stuff back downstairs to lock it up and go grab dinner. When we got back they ended up changing the batteries on our door lock. Breakfast was only muffins and coffee previous hotels we stayed at during our trip had better options. Only other gripe I had was that no one came to clean the room during the two nights we were there. Otherwise things were fine location was pretty nice conveniently located. View wasn't great but we came to Tahoe to travel around so no biggie there.

      A great stay

      This was a great place, good price, close to everything, within walking distance to casinos and restaurants, clean and spacious, quiet and beautiful area, nice staff. Breakfast was limited due to COVID so coffee, packages muffins and orange juice but still a fantastic deal overall.
