We had a change of plans and had to look for a place to sleep at 10pm on Sunday. Motel 6 was a good choice. It is a no frills place, but very clean and looks almost new. There is plenty of parking. We got checked in and out quickly. Recommended.

We stayed during the 4th of July weekend and booked in advance online. The location is great being very close to the lake and with free parking and Denny's nearby. The check-in line was very long and they were running a bit behind on cleaning the rooms but the front-desk staff worked quickly to resolve the issue. The rooms are...

We arrived early afternoon and were given a room directly which was nice of the guy at reception. Relaxed by the pool and left very early the next day. Kindly they even gave us some take away breakfast at 5am. English guy at the reception was very nice.

Too far to walk to any activity. Had to drive and then find parking. As to the rooms, they were tiny. Not much space to open two suite cases. Could deal with that....but no coffee pot, or frig in rooms as well as a hair dryer! Tv was ok but older and small. This was not cheap! We saw rooms...

Facility looked nice, close enough to be able to get to everything but still be away from it all. They are small rooms but we never planed on spending a lot of time in the hotel. Toilets were loud but they flushed. Pet friendly. Staff was very friendly. They do charge for wi-fi. No breakfast but they offer a coupon...

We were shattered and wanted somewhere quick . Was very basic but clean small room. Fine for one night stay. Close to all amenities even had an outside small pool. Able to park directly outside room on ground level.

I have stayed here several times in last 20 years. Clean, cheap, great value. I have become a little more cautious of budget motels in recent years and this one has always been fine. Rooms in back look out onto a marsh and willow grove facing Lake Tahoe which is not visible in the distance, with a bike path and...

My partner and I stayed here for three nights on an Xmas Ski trip. I've stayed at lots of Motel 6's, & this was a good one. Pretty convenient to Heavenly, & all the major stuff, and the staff was pretty friendly, even working with us to move us to a different room after our first night to try &...

Cheap and conveniently located, this Motel 6 should do the job for a cheap ski weekend. Most awesome is that they allow dogs for free. We even left ours in the room in violation of their pet policy, and in response they just called and told us to come make him stop howling (I swear he never does this at...
