We were staying only one night in Tahoe, and we wanted something quiet and more private than the big casinos and hotels. We found it at the Sail In Motel.
The Sail In Motel is absolutely perfect if you want clean, quiet and a view! The rooms were spotless, the owners were very nice and the locals were helpful.
When you pull up, you just see a parking lot and a two story motel that's pretty small. However, once we went upstairs and then around the back side - Wow! Below our walkway was about 30 yards of lawn, with tables and chairs, a hot tub and a horsehoe pit. That lawn goes out to a fence which overlooks a walking trail and the beach.
The hotel is in a residential neighborhood, and next to Reagan Beach. There was also a little area for dogs, and there were a few playing fetch in the lake. Entertaining!
Very quiet, lovely view and more than reasonably priced. We will definitely stay here again.
