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.

Superb - a great find!

This is the kind of place you hope to find at the end of a long day on the road. A quick, courteous check-in, and a cool, quiet, comfortable room that looked like it could have been furnished by Ikea. No hitches and no glitches. An additional bonus is that the Inn is located within easy walking distance of the major gaming resorts, and there are several eateries (fast food as well as full sitdown) within 2 blocks. There is also a major grocery store located across the highway (has a great deli). What more do you need? Would definitely stay there again.

Weekend get away

Room was beautiful and updated. Bed was very comfortable and the comforter was soft and clean... Not crunchy like in some hotels. Softest bed! We slept like rocks! Room much nicer than some pricier rooms we have stayed in. Would have loved a blow dryer in the room, but I survived.

Not so great

This wasn't my first stay here, but it will definitely be my last. The first time I stayed here, it went without a hitch. This time, not so much. Room keys weren't working (in either of the rooms we were moved to) had to get manager to let us in any time we left the room. Annoying. Front desk guy was somewhat unstable. Heater didn't work & had to be moved to other room. When using hair dryer, we were told not to have any other appliance on or it would trip the breaker (really?). I think that was the last straw.

Mixed feelings....

A motel that's been remodeled and decorated beautifully. Has hardwood floor, powerful shower, fridge in room, feels clean, new, and even a little bit artsy. Close to Heavenly gondola (around 8 minutes walk). And the staff was the nicest I have ever met. HOWEVER, the hardwood floor has its downside - it's incredibly noisy if you stayed on first floor and the guy (even worse, lady with pumps) above you kept walking. And the wireless internet didn't work in room (staff said they were gonna fix it in a week). No coffeemaker in room, though not a big deal for me.
