“Just DON'T!!!”
Reviewed 19 September 2008

Spent 2 nights at this hotel. It was nothing but a dump! We booked this hotel because it was cheap. Speaked for itself when we got in. The washroom was so small, tiles were chipped, and the smell... OMGosh! The carpet was full of stains, and the bed seemed a hundred years old! ...Never Again!!!

I stayed at this hotel for one night, and I'm sure it will be the only time. The Knights inn is located just off Lake Tahoe Boulevard, and at $39/ night we found it a great deal. But once we got inside, it wasn't even worth 19. The Hotel is old, badly maintained, and the shower floor looked like it had molds growing in it. I love to take a shower after and before a long drive, and I hate washing without a shower, but it's the first time in like ten years I didn't use the shower and washed like that.

Lady at check-in was okay, but she looked like she had been drinking. The beds were okay to sleep in, and the room had me and my mom laughing all night. It was so bad it was funny.

Lady at check-out was totally adorable. She was very friendly and competent, she was new there. And she has a sweet dog.

When you're in Lake Tahoe, you can get much better than this

If you're looking for a place to eat in South Lake Tahoe, go to Tep's Villa Roma Dinner House. I love Italian food, but I never ate it like at Tep's. The best dinner I've ever had. And to top it off, they offer great and friendly service

The location is nice, just across the casinos. No other service available. Although the receptionist was kind. The room is crumpy but at a cheap price, nothing to complain for.

First thing was the small overcrowded parking lot. We got room #26. When we opened the door the smell almost knocked us over. It was musty and like an animal had been there. In the bathroom was what appeared to be a single animal feces behind the toilet. We called the front desk about it and in about 10 minutes they came up with to check out the "extra" in the bathroom. The man sent to clean it flushed it down the toilet, left, and then came back with a can of Comet cleanser. As he left he told us,that it was just "chocolate", but the urine on the floor stained it and it only looked like feces. How reassuring. The "queen" bed was more like a double, eight inches above the floor, and the mattress was hard. The box fan was hardly a substitute for A/C which was needed on the second floor the final days of summer. Management was apologetic but never offered us another room. I suppose we got the last room available. So much for making a reservation.

  • Liked — The parking lot was close to the street so we got away from it quickly
  • Disliked — The room. Period.
  • Tips/Secrets — Don't go here unless you see the room ahead of time and know what you are getting into.

Seriously - I thought really sketchy motels were a thing of the past but allow me to paint a simple picture: the room smelled of smoke masked by strawberry air freshener, the blankets had holes and stains, there was a sitting couch that was terribly stained with some sort of unidentifiable worm/booger/organic material, the shower curtain was mildewed, and the TV was from 1967. Enough said.

Had reservations for Jan 2 and on way to tahoe an avalanche occurred on hwy 395 closing 395 from sr203 to sr167 - we were on 395 just before the avalanche and had to turn around after 8 hours driving to that point - we called Knights Inn to let them know of the avalanche and cancel reservation and the manager would not refund the money even though it was due to an avalanche - when I let her know I would be rating the hotel on this site she hung up on me. This hotel is unprofessional.

This motel advertises that it is clean and comfortable. It is neither. The rooms are dirty as is the furniture. It is not air conditioned, so we had to leave the windows open; no window screens, so anybody can simply reach in and unlock the door. The staff was indifferent to the simplest request (had to beg for two disposable water cups). Won't ever stay here again.
