Nice little hotel in the middle of town.

Posted Jul 31, 2017
Although the room was large and clean, the a/c system was noisy and outdated. Otherwise staff and location made up for the lack of amenities.

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.

We are sorry to hear of your experience. Thank you for your praise to our new flooring! The project is near completion. The carpet is stained in a couple of the rooms, but we have them deep cleaned every 3 months, the last time the week before memorial day (your stay)! We have shared your sentiments about the staff with the staff for coaching. I appreciate the time you took to tell us so we are able to improve by it.

We were there for the splash dogs event in park next to Hotel. Hotel was nice but the breakfest was only oatmeal or yogurt thought that could be a lot better. plus there was not info online about pet fee. hotel rooms were nice but landscaping need some work weeds everywhere.
