Nice motel in downtown Gardnerville.

Posted Jul 10, 2017
Pros: Location
Cons: A couple of comfortable chairs in room
Convenient location to wedding venue in G-vile. JT bar across street is a plus. Room was on balcony facing Main Street.

Close to Tahoe Lake

Posted Jul 6, 2017
I would recommend this hotel to people who are visiting Tahoe Lake. It's about half an hour away from the lake. They have a policy to check it before midnight. Our flight from New York was delayed and we arrived after midnight. Lucky we called in advance and the stuff was kind to make a note about our late arrival, otherwise we would have to pay for the second night. This is something to keep in mind.

Booked king bedroom and when I got to hotel, receptionist said no king bedrooms available, gave me a supposedly upgrade that had full size wall/bunk bed (horrible) run down suite. Went back to lobby, was told to wait 45 min. for housekeeping to finish cleaning room I wanted, asked for a refund and finally was given king bedroom.

Experience was great except it says free breakfast but it only includes two foods to choose from. A few more options would be good !!

Historic area of Gardenerville

Posted May 29, 2017
Pros: Location
Cons: Room condition (carpet) was filthy and badly stained - desk attendant should be more accommodating
Location: Beautiful location just about an hour drive from Lake Tahoe.
We arrived late on Friday night of Memorial Day weekend. The check-in register (young man) assigned us to an upstairs room at the very end of the facility. The carpet in the room was disgusting, it was so filthy and stained that you would not ever walk without shoes. Even though we were exhausted from our travels, we immediately started looking for another lodging facility. We went to check out of the hotel, the clerk asked why we were checking out and what was wrong with the room (as if he didn't know already), he ended up giving us a room on the first floor with wood flooring (much better). Just so disappointing that he was trying to pawn off a room like that for weary travelers. The female clerk was very nice but the male desk attendant seemed to have a huge chip on his shoulders. Will NOT stay at that facility again.

Extraordinarily welcoming staff.

Posted May 14, 2017
The staff desires your room is well-equipped w/necessities & wanting to make you as comfortable as possible. Further, I had a personal need separate from the requirements of the room & they bent over backwards to assist. I was very blessed w/my entire 6 day stay.

Perfect for me

Posted May 13, 2017
I found this to be a charming, quite and comfortable resting spot. My family visited the huge antique store right next door and walked to the nearby park. Great staff that helped us get more towels and also let us check in early. I would love to stay here again.

Great Place with the Best Access!

Posted Apr 30, 2017
The staff were kind, helpful and truly on top of things. I was in the valley the weekend of the Genoa cowboy festival and it was just a hop, skip and a jump down the road. It's close to shops and convenience stores, for those just-in-case items! The best Mexican food place in the town, Francisco's, is less than a mile north along the highway. It was just a lovely time!

Clean and Modern with lots of Charm.

Posted Apr 25, 2017
Pros: I particularly like the beautiful thick natural wood headboard and sink counter top. They gave real personality to a modern looking hotel room.
Location: JT's Basque Restaurant. Great ! COD Casino. Lots of atmosphere, clean and fun. The beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains and scenery.
The room size was larger than most big name hotel chains. My wife and I have stayed at a number of hotels in cities such as Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco and Las Vegas. The Historian was cleaner than any of the others and without any strong chemical smells. We stayed a week at the Historian and it was kept impeccably clean the entire week. The best part however was the staff. They could not have been nicer or more helpful and accommodating.A+++
