Super comfy bed. Convenient to walk to plenty of restaurants. Loved the beer garden with live music at night. Great atmosphere & friendly staff

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

Fairly old property that has been redecorated and somewhat renovated. The decor is a charming hiker-hipster vibe. Good walkability, although I didn’t love the towering casinos right outside the hotel. Takes away from the charm of Tahoe.

Wonderful place. Centrally located and most importantly CLEAN!!! They accept pets, and you would never know it. My room smelled clean and sanitized. Definitely would recommend. Enjoyed the outside seating area with bonfire, music and games. Great place.

Check in times were flexible despite the current situation with the COVID-19 crisis. Amenities were as described. Although it was stated on the website as with free breakfast included, due to the current circumstances, they had to stop doing so.
