Very friendly staff

Posted Jun 21, 2015
There is nothing fancy about this hotel. We had a partial lake view room which was nice. We didn't expect much from this hotel but the staff was very friendly and helpful. The bed was very comfortable and the room had all the amenities. The location is good too. Just a block walk out the back to the beach and pier. Heidi's breakfast restaurant is right next door also .

The place was at a great location and reasonable pricing. Right in front of the beach & The rooms are very very out dated they need to be remodeled unless u like 1980 style.

Walking distance to the lake.

Posted Jun 7, 2015
Good price for a three queen bedroom. The best part is you can be in the lake just by walking 2-3 minutes.

Room nice size, clean and adequate.

Posted May 20, 2015
Pros: Location
Cons: Outside appearance
Location: Very central to sites, beach, shopping.
Room is adequate when your days are filled with activities outside of room, good bed, and clean bathroom. Continental breakfast very minimal. No yogurt, very little fruit.

OK hotel for people on a budget.

Posted Apr 10, 2015
Pros: Location.
Cons: Front desk personnel communication skills.
Location: Centrally located, close to Heavenly skiing area, the lake and you can drive to Carson city, Nevada or Reno Nevada nearby.
The hotel is centrally located. Near various restaurants and close to the lake and skiing area. The front desk personnel could use some training on welcoming guests to the hotel, and provide information on the features of the hotel, places nearby to eat, where you can park, and what time the complimentary breakfast being offered. I had to ask what time breakfast would be. We were checked in and given the keys to the room and I had to ask for the location of the room. Not much communications from him. This is the first time I've experienced this at a Howard Johnson hotel, I've stayed in other Howard Johnson hotel with better and informative front desk personnel.

Ho Jo's Tahoe

Not bad for a stop over one nighter it was not bad for $40. The wireless looks like it was a serious after thought. It could be improved

A night in Tahoe

Posted Mar 17, 2015 on Hotels
The front desk service was great. The other people in the hotel were quiet. It was empty at the late afternoon but by the time we finished dinner the hotel was completely full. I thought the bed and pillows were so comfortable. The room was super clean and it was a great stay!

Great experience, nice staff

Posted Mar 16, 2015
Spent two nights here and have to say it was a great budget option. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was big, even with three queen beds. The wifi constantly gave issues but wasn't that big of a deal. The breakfast options were minimal but acceptable.
