What a Dump!

Posted Sep 19, 2014
Pros: The bathroom was beautifully done in stone with a shower that was easy to operate.
Cons: The steps to the 2nd level should be replaced. The installation of new carpet would be a major improvement.
Location: The location is perfect with restaurants and shops in walking distance. There is also access to a paved walking trail along the lake
The steps to the 2nd level room were splintered with 1/2 of the top step riser missing! The carpet in our room was disgustingly soiled. Parts of the ceiling edges were missing paint. There is no elevator.

Older but O.K.

Posted Aug 6, 2014
Pros: The attendant was friendly, helpful and nice. It was conveniently located.
Location: Good eating spots close by.
Our room was pleasant, fairly large with the large heart-shaped tub in the bedroom. We are an older couple and the tub was difficult for us to enter and leave it. My husband had to help me get in and out. The shower was nice with a full, gentle spray. The bed was comfortable and the linens were all sparkly clean.

Clean but Run-Down

Posted Aug 3, 2014
Pros: Having a fridge and microwave Friendly desk staff
Cons: Put screens on windows. Repair leaky faucets. Overhaul hot water system so turning on hot water to sink does not shut off hot water to shower.
Location: There is not a lot to do in Tahoe City itself. The beaches on Lake Tahoe near Tahoe City were disappointing compared to those closer to Incline.
Tahoe City Inn, while clean, is very run-down and shabby. Only half of the lights/lamps in our room worked. The faucet dripped and the hot water knob did not work properly. When the hot water was turned on in the bathroom sink, it cut off the hot water to the shower. There were no screens so the windows could not be opened. The room was crowded with furniture which had to be lined up against one wall in order to get to the bathroom. And the "free movies" advertised were old reruns from the 90s. The channels were very limited. It was nice having a microwave and fridge, and the bed was comfortable enough, but could have used better pillows. Although we had paid for two nights, we did not stay the second night. For the price, this hotel was not worth it.

small hotel-but works

Posted Jul 29, 2014
Pros: above
Cons: above
Location: lots of small shops. Lake tahoe of course. running,biking, rafting. massages, hair and nails. if you drive, there is beach access at Tahoe vista.
small old hotel. close to shopping. room comfortable and clean...no amenities to speak of. No beach access. I would stay again in a pinch. We were out and around during the day,so room for sleeping work great. No patio or place to hang out.

Great choice for location and price

Posted Jul 19, 2014
Pros: Room was great
Very clean and comfortable room, got the upgraded room and had a lovely non heart shaped tub. Parking was free but tight and exterior had wooden staircase in serious need of maintenance.

Ok stay in older facility, but clean.

Posted Jul 9, 2014
Pros: The room was very clean. Bed and linens were nice.
Cons: Overall appearance. Patch/paint walls, etc.
Location: Location was actually pretty cool. Easy walk down to Lake Tahoe with plenty of places to eat.
Hotel/room dated. Will say that the room was really clean. Bed/linens were actually very nice. Same with towels. Had an older "heart-shaped" jacuzzi tub, that unlike some other reviewers, had plenty of hot water and worked just fine. Walls were thin and you could here other folks around you. It worked for the one night, not sure I would stay again unless no other alternative.

Only a place to sleep

Posted Jul 7, 2014
Pros: Nothing really, bed was comfortable
Cons: Almost everything
Location: Plenty of activities nearby
Went to a private party at Incline Village over Fourth of July and did not want to drive 100 miles home so booked one of very few rooms available. Property is in good location in Tahoe City but facility is very dated and exterior very unattractive with crowded parking lot.

Not bad but not good

Posted Jun 30, 2014 on Hotels.com
The room was not very clean. The sheets had a great amount of hairs. The reception was only opened from 8-4pm so if you have a question, there is no one to help you. They just leave you a phone number to call in case of an emergency.
