Pros. Nothing much to be like. It’s just okay that bathroom is clean has microwave inside and refrigerator.

Cons. To make sure that the bed sheet are totally change. Our bedsheet and pillow cases are dirty it seems like it’s not been change from previous guest therefore, I have to put towels on top of all the sheets and pillow cases to be able to sleep. Clerk was hard to reach never ever answer a call for a question.

Pros. The location was the only thing that was positive about it.

Cons. The service was awful. The bedding was gross and needed to be trashed. The advertisement of the room was misleading. The room was very dirty and when I tried to address it with the owner I was yelled at.

Pros. price was acceptable and the location was okay...WiFi is better than it was on previous stays

Cons. tiny room, dark and poorly lit, stairs/parking are below average but mostly it's the owners/staff who are rude and unfriendly-they act like they are doing you a favor by allowing you to stay there

Pros. Only thing I liked it is cheapest in that area

Cons. Heater did not work. It shutdown after few mins and never switch on. So entire night I had to sleep around 50 degree which was pretty cold. I would rather spend little more and get good place with all things working

Pros. Wanted to do a Tahoe trip before the weather turned cold. Was able to afford it after finding a great rate through Kayak. The hotel was simple and cozy and also clean and well kept. Room had new bathroom and the perk of a fridge and microwave. Location was quite close to the lake, attractions and busisnesses. It is easy to find off the main roadway. pretty peaceful overall.

Cons. Building is older, so walls are a bit thin. There was no card to put out to decline room service. (I suppose I could have called front desk but didn't bother) Small space, not good for children.
