      Never again will we stay at this hotel. The staff was rude and the rooms were really nasty.

      close to Heavenly ski resort

      The breakfast was danishes and coffee, and was not out until 8:00AM!

      The best part of my stay was the time away from the room.

      The motel appears to be clean on the outside. Upon entering our room, all the furniture had cigarette burns and the linen's had hair on it. We chose to stay out of the room as long as possible and only sleep there.

    • Couple

      There is nothing to like.

      This hotel is a waste of money...I Feel very sad that I choose this hotel...rooms are so small, not clean at all, bathroom is worst, I guess they think people don't need bathroom at all and thats the reason they have it that way.. There is no staff. Bed, bedsheets and comforters smells tooo bad....Please remove this hotel from your list or you may lose customers....

      A nice and clean room with a good bed for a reasonable price. Though situated next to a busy street, you hardly heard anything, so we slept well.

      PRICE!! The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I go to a week-long Spanish class every year and spend very little time in my room so I just wanted a clean, safe place to sleep and to prepare a daily picnic lunch. This was perfect. Plenty of storage space to unpack. Fridge, microwave, spacious room with king bed, plenty of outlets for charging computer and phone. Air conditioning worked well. Cleaning service was prompt. Free parking next to room. Short drive to beach, near grocery store, pharmacies, restaurants. Coin washer/dryer on premises (which I did not use).

      The furniture was worn (though the mattress was comfortable) but what do you expect for the price?

      Good location. Cheap price.

      I did not like that the photos did not match the current state of this inn. The furniture and bathroom was very run down. I'm not sure how this had a 7.8 good rating either.

      For 4 nights of stay,we felt comfortable and secured...i love the room arrangement and even our valuable things are left behind,there's no worries because you can trust the staff at Budget Inn...We'll be back at Lake Tahoe and take Budget Inn again :)

      There must be rug inside the bathroom...

      Quiet and the lady who worked at the reception is really nice.

      I wish the pool was open.

      The staff were very conscientious and friendly. The location was great. The cost was excellent. The room was clean.

      The facilities were worn and in need of a facelift. The furnishings and room were also very worn and tired.

    • Single

      Clean, quiet, comfortable but definitely 1950's in regard to style. Very buget but that is what I was after.

      Wanted to stay another night but rate increased 220%. Walked across the street to Howard Johnson's ( which I would classify as a 3 on your Budget to Luxury Scale) and got a room at a 66% increase. Will go hojo's next time. Greed is a terrible thing.

      there where some funny smells. maybe some frebreeze can help, but it was the only thing that wasn´t a 100% ok.

    • Older travelers
      6.0

      We liked the location of the Inn as it is conveniently located in the heart of South Lake Tahoe, and walking distance to many places we like to go! We walked to restaurants, casinos, and walking and biking areas!

      We usually stay in our timeshare and we were not used to not having the conveniences of the timeshare, but for the cost of our stay, we thought it served our purpose.
