New years weekend

My wife and I stayed at the lake Tahoe budget Inn during the 2015 new years weekend. Considering the options and the prices of all the hotels within a mile or so of the Stateline casinos I was fine with the room . Everything we needed our room had. the owner was there every day and was very nice. Across the street was one of Tahoes best breakfast restaurants and a cvs witch worked great for us. Negatives parking was super tight. So overall if your looking for a spectacular marble floored, jacuzzi tub, honeymoon, Million Dollar view of Tahoe probably not the spot. but if your looking for A cheap room with clean sheets The budget Inn wasn't bad.

Entertainment tip: Short drive from hotel

On new years the closer you get to the casinos the more expensive they get and we wanted to be close because we were gonna be drinking and thought we could walk if we had to. We found out their are cabs everywhere. So next year instead of being a mile away we may try a little nicer place that is let's say 10 miles from casinos

Not what I expected

I didn't expect it to be that bad guess I was wrong. There was spider webs in differnt places I found a small spider in the restroom. The room smelled like it hasn't been cleaned or used in weeks.

Good for the price

A clean motel in South Lake Tahoe -- I liked the room, but the mattress was pretty uncomfortable. Other than that, it was a clean room that was great for the weekend for 2 22-year-olds looking to get away. We spent most of our time at the beaches near there / at the casinos & it was a nice enough place to come back to & crash at night. Great places to eat within walking distance, and I CAN'T stress how friendly & helpful the staff is.

Birthday adventure

Great location. Friendly staff. Clean room. Spotty wifi. Basic room but can't beat the price. I'd stay there again!

Good for overnighters

It was good for just a night stay after snowboarding all day. Room was clean for an Inn and only a few problems with the bathroom faucet and shower handle, but other than that it was ok. You get what you pay for. Only there to spend a night.

A good low-end room

If you are used to 3rd world hotels, than this will seem nice. It is nice to have a low priced option in Soulh Lake Tahoe

Clean, Cheap, Great for the Budget

I did not come into this stay with high expectations, as no one should who is spending such a small amount to stay here. I was surprised by the remodeled rooms which were quite nice and spacious. It served my wife and I well for a inexpensive weekend getaway!

Budget motel with everything you may need.

Motel is old and bad looking but it is cheap, clean, and has refrigerator, microwave plenty of towels etc. Even internet works well. Staff was friendly and helpful. Very good for the money.

1 star that keeps on giving...

I need to be in Tahoe every couple months for 2 nights & have stayed in several cheap places. Will probably come back here from now on. Good location for me (good food in walking distance), quiet, clean, fast WiFi and you can not beat the $ for what you get. I have stayed here 2x so far. The Budget Inn works for me.
