5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I stayed here while visiting Palisades Tahoe (formerly Squaw Valley) which was only a 25min drive. Good location between two restaurants, a 7-11 across the street, beach access across the street. Not only includes a microwave and minifridge, but had a sink and pots and pans and silverware and of course a coffee maker. Good internet speed and television. Great new quiet heaters kept room consistently warm and worked silently in the background. Proprietor "Ed" was very pleasant and welcoming, very hard worker keeping the property maintained and clean.

2/5 Poor

Traveled with partner, Traveled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities
It’s run by a single person it seems. Cons: Place is not maintained with really dirty floors and everything else. Also we were there in the middle of a snowstorm and you really have to dig out your vehicle yourself, the hotel has no preparedness for snow. Cups, towers were replaced only after multiple knocks! Pros: Mixed bag experience but i am glad to have dodged the snowstorm here! I hope Ed takes these feedback positively and improve - place due to it’s location has a lot of potential.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Our stay was nice, the manager was really nice, the only complaint I have is that the beds were not very comfortable. Other than that, we really enjoyed our stay. Very nice sunrise on Lake Tahoe is literally right across the street. The 7-Eleven across the street was closed just about all night until 7 AM which was very inconvenient.
