Horrible customer service

As noted in the reviews, the individual working the front desk was reeking of alcohol for the majority of our stay. Unfortunately, this is not the worst part of our experience at this hotel. When he is not drunk and working the front desk, he goes completely missing. We were unable to check in when we arrived there on time because he had gone missing. Also, by the end of the first night, both of our key cards had somehow become demagnetized. Therefore, we were locked out of rooms and had no one working the front desk to allow us back in. We will never stay here again.

o.k., but I was expecting more

This place is o.k., and a decent value for the price. Although I thought there was a pool - and there was not. And I also was expecting a continental breakfast in the morning - nothing but coffee. It's a little loud being next to the main road in South Lake Tahoe. The room is nice and bed comfortable - though no carpetting - so that wasn't real comfortable. Kind of funky, interesting decor. I would not rate this place 3 stars - maybe 2 at best. It's o.k., but there are better places in town for the price.

Couple get-away

the hotel is close to shopping, restaurants (just behind Carrows Restaurant), across a beautiful gallery; walking distance to casinos, and 5-minute drive to the lake. The room is comfortable and with modern design, the Front Desk staff is helpful and very nice. It has a big parking lot for customers.

Hotel rooms are clean, but, there is no access to boiling water and heating instruments and if breakfast was included it would be much better. Internet speed was wery slow

Very clean room, customer service could be better

Was at Lake Tahoe for the Jul 4th weekend and stayed at Highland Inn for a couple of nights. Pros: 1. Room was very clean 2. Bed was comfortable 3. Great location - close (in walking distance) to malls, restaurants, casinos etc. 4. Feels relatively safe compared to hotels in the same class. 5. Widescreen TV, refrigerator, clean towels, extra soaps. 6. Wooden flooring. Cons: 1. Wifi was not working in the room. Had to go to the lobby for Internet access. 2. No fan (for ventilation) in the toilet but did not cause any noticeable trouble ;). Would have felt better if a fan was installed. 3. No hairdryer & microwave oven. 4. No breakfast 5. Front office/reception appears critically short-staffed. Same guy appears to be doing everything. 6. Babies stay for free. Overall, a good place if you are looking for a "no-frills" place to take rest and a hot shower. To the management: Pls make sure that Wifi is working- in this Internet age, being able to access Wifi Internet it is as important as eating breakfast in the morning. Oh wait, did I say that providing breakfast is also important?

Poor experience

Not worth one star. No coffee maker. internet available in office only during 7 to 7. housekeeper not available, so received replacement towels and made our own bed. Manager used a lot of foul language in a verbal dispute with his friend-just ouside the office door. So disappointed that someone gave it 3 stars. Would not give this 1 star.

Charming hotel

What a charming little hotel within 5 minutes' walk of the CA/NV stateline - i.e. where all the South Lake Tahoe action is. The room was beautifully updated with hardwood floors, modern decor and huge flatscreen TV. Also comes with a handy refrigerator. Perfect place to stay if you're on a budget and need a weekend getaway in the heart of S. Lake Tahoe. The staff was attentive and welcoming. Wireless internet connection was lightning fast. We will stay here again.
