Great location and easy to access but the sheets had per hair all over them even the extra pillows in the closet. Our room was right next to the busy road where you could hear traffic all night long along with a bright light outside our window that stayed on all night

Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
We liked the location and everything seemed OK until the night time. First, but not worse, we could hear very loud noises and voices from next door room after midnight. Then, we couldn't sleep due to a loud strange and long sound within the bathroom walls. But the worse of worse is that I got terrible bitten by bedbugs. I felt that something bit me at night and ran to the bathroom and discovered a bite, thinking it maybe the spider and had no choice but go back to bed. I couldn't sleep all night and in the morning I discovered that my whole body got bitten, and my daughter saw the bed bugs crawling along the bed board. We checked out in rush, and I feel horrible since I got very bad allergic reaction and the spots where I got bitten (over 30) are super swollen, painful and itchy. We stayed in so many hotels, all prices and level ranges, but this happened to me for the first time in 30 years. This hotel's bedbugs ruined my whole experience of our trip to Tahoe.

Very clean, simple, affordable and nice stay. Obviously it’s not a five star hotel and you should not expect it.
