“Not the Best Quality Inn”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

We received a friendly check in but the room, although clean, was dated and tired. Whilst we were there we experienced qiute a lot of noise from other guests outside our room well into the early hours. Breakfast was advertised as "hot breakfast". However there was nothing on display and we were begrudgingly cooked a couple of sausages in a microwave. I did not find this hotel up to the standard expected of a Quality Inn.

DO NOT STAY HERE!!! We left after 5 minutes in this room. The chemical stench was unbearable. He said it was a cleaner, but we have a 2 year old and didn't want to take any chances.
We booked through Travelocity- who I do not recommend because of this incident... They would not issue us a refund because a person at this hotel 'Ashton' completely lied and told them that we didn't complain and we actually did stay there. the room was $180 a night! we have credit card receipts of the OTHER hotel we did actially stay in that night. So it's our word against there's, and of course it's more profitable to not listen to the consumer.
These people have no integrity. And what's worse - their rooms stink!
It wouldn't let me give them 0 stars...

This place is tired and dirty. This was the first time I have ever considered going back to request a different room or go somewhere else. The room was so small and the furniture was old, worn and dirty. The dust on the old heater in the wall was disgusting. If you have any allergies to dust..stay away. We tried to avoid having to be in our room as much as possible. The bathroom floor was sticky, and the door on the shower leaked so water leaked onto the bathroom floor. The comforter was so old, probably from the 70s. Please go somewhere else.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else

I usually check the room before I check in, but the lobby looked very new and well kept. There was no bathtub in the bathroom, only a shower that was in bad shape. The door of the shower was very dirty as were the baseboards and a/c vents. I learned my lesson, look at the room first.

I booked this hotel for Lake Tahoe as it was part of the Choice Hotels chain. For an Inns and Suites, I had expected a bit more. Our room needed updating. It just felt dated. The pool area - around the pool, the surface is not great, and the water was freezing. Location wise - it is good. A 10 min walk to the main area for the gondola and on the main road so everything is accessible.

Just an overnighter, with jetsaves wonders of the golden west tour, Very basic motel style, good place to make base camp, only suitible for a few nights as very basic, no luxuries here, Done the Dinner cruise from here coach trip away, got back late and our driver went round the car park ten times, I pitty the other guests in the hotel, what a laugh.
You can get a breakfast for a few dollars, buffet style but dont get there too early as nothing will be ready.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms are better dont like people looking in the windows and cars parking.
