I recently stayed two nights while on a ski trip. The room was very clean and in very good condition. Furnishings and the bathroom fixtures were in very good condition.
The building is three stories and there is little sound insulation so it could be noisy but the neighbors during my stay were generally quiet. The toilets are pressure flush so they are quite noisy. There is some road noise from busy North Lake Blvd. but the room I was in was facing away from the street so that was not much of an issue. Parking is a little tight but managable. Some of the upper rooms look like they have a nice view of Lake Tahoe across the street.
This is a no frills place, but it does have a small pool (our room on the first floor had a sliding glass door to the deck of the pool) and a year-round hot tub. The heater is an older design (you adjust the thermostat by turning numbered dial inside the unit). There is a limited free continental breakast served (coffee, juice, and some packaged danishes).
Housekeeping was well done.
They requested payment for my room when I checked in, which was unusual but not a problem.
If you're looking for a clean, well maintained place and don't have extravagant needs I would recommend a stay here.
