“It was fine...”
Reviewed 16 January 2006

Checked in for our hotel rooms around 7:30pm and found only 3 rooms available. 2 of the 3 rooms were next to each other, so we took it. It was on the ground floor near the playground area. Our parking space was directly behind our hotel rooms. Our hotel rooms had a back and a front door, which was unusual. We used the back door more often than the front!

Upon entering, I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms were large compared to other properties at this level of quality. It's like a Motel 6, but the room was very large. It was simply furnished with a king sized bed, 2 nightstands, a table with 2 chairs, a TV and drawers beneath it, a separate dressing area, and a totally separate bathroom.

Ok, here's my gripe. The shower head was placed low, and I'm 5'8"! Water pressure and hot water was excellent however. There also seemed to be some small pit holes in the floor, but it was nothing to worry about. Then I had a problem with static electricity with the bed. It seemed like the sheets had a lot of static. I kept shocking myself every time I got up from the bed!

The heater worked well. Upon checking into my room, the room was already heated. There is a thermostat where you can adjust the temperature, but I believe the thermostat settings were about 5-10 degrees off. I just adjusted accordingly.

Check-in was quick, efficient, and friendly.

Their continental breakfast was sparse - just really small muffins and coffee. We opted to eat elsewhere.

All in all, we had a great time in Tahoe. For the price we paid, it was all worth it. We will stay at this property again.

Our stay was very enjoyable. The rooms, the service and the on site restaurant and pub were all great. We will definately stay again.

We stayed here in the fall of 2002. It was the dirtiest place and we slept with the lights on. We were sorry we didn't complain more but it probably wouldn't have done much good. The carpet was dirty and we left our shoes on. This is a motel that has bought the right to use the Super 8 logo but it is an old place badly taken care of. The Super 8 chain can only be trusted if you stay at their "Pride" hotels. When we got home we wrote a letter to the chain who in turn forwarded it to the motel. All we got was a sorry letter. They don't care since they've got your money. People like that shouldn't be in the business.

We made reservations over the phone and were told the rates were $89 a night. When we arrived we found out that the $89 was for the first night ONLY, the next two nights were going to cost us $129 a night. We stayed the first night because we had to or lose our money. The room was not very well kept up. The furnace hardly worked at all, the walls are paper thin, and the parking is absolutely pitiful. We filed a complaint with the reservation services, but as of now, we haven't heard anything. There are much nicer, and cheaper places to stay at Tahoe than this place. I hope this post helps!!

Our recent trip to Lake Tahoe was marred only by our accommodations at the Super 8. We were given a smoking room which reeked. The fixtures in the bath area were not as clean one would reasonably expect. The carpeting on the floor was worn and dirty...the sort you wouldn't want to walk on barefoot. We ate dinner once at the adjoining Mulligan's Irish Pub. While the food was generally good, it was served only lukewarm. The room was noisy with street noise and voices in normal speaking volumes were easily heard throughout the night. In addition, we travelled with pets and were charged an extra $10 per pet per night, bringing our bill to $111/night! For a rate like that I expected much more in terms of quality from the motel.
