I stayed here with a friend on the last week-end of July on a Saturday when South Lake Tahoe prices are 3X what they are during the week. This place seems to have gotten a worse ranking than it deserves thanks to a lot of questionable first-time reviewers. The place is not AAA rated, probably because they're not staffed at night (a AAA requirement, and admittedly this place's big weak point). If it weren't for that, this would be a perfectly decent 2* property. Everything is clean and well kept-up, from the exterior and the pool/hot tub to the combo bathtub and shower. There's no flat-screen or HD TV, but there was a full spectrum of channels which all came through clearly. The mattress, while firm for some (fine for me), was at least new and not sagging. The outside sink was a blessing for those of us who like to shave while their friend showers. No parking problems. Best of all is the location, within easy walking distance of the Stateline casinos and the Heavenly gondola. You're going to have a hard time finding a clean, well-kept up place for $120 on a peak night at a similar location (I can tell you I've seen worse in that area). If you can deal with no real breakfast to speak of (go to the Forrest buffet!), and almost no service (nobody there at 10 AM, and locked up around 10 PM I believe), you should be happy here. You shouldn't have to pay much more than $40 on a typical Sunday-Thursday, though (look around).
