Skiing

I stay here when I want to go ski Alpine or Squaw. The place is basic, but that is all I am looking for.

Surprisingly clean and good, if basic

This place fit the bill on a very busy ski weekend as an economical, no frills motor lodge type motel. Room had obviously been remodeled/upgraded recently and seemed all quite new and clean. Location is handy to Safeway and several nearby restaurants, but the highway and its noise is very very close by. Walls are kind of thin. Some nice things you might not expect: - Breakfast was included, if basic - Microwave and mini-fridge in room Some amenities you might expect at a more expensive place that were not included: - Bathroom fan - Hot tub - Free wifi (they charged $10)

great location and staff

The location is perfect for a day of ski at Squaw. The room we got is nice and clean, has microwave and mini refrigerator. The staff are friendly and helpful. The only downside is that breakfast only starts at 8am, and on weekends only. Other hotels we stayed in Tahoe City usually have breakfast earlier, and mostly daily. It will be really appreciated that the hotel manager could consider to start breakfast earlier (such as 7:30) so that we can go to the squaw team practice after a nice warm breakfast.

in room jacuzzi, breakfast on weekends, great north lake tahoe location

Stayed over memorial day weekend. Two night stay. Had breakfast on Sunday morning. Sign said breakfast from 8to10, but no better get up early or there will be nothing left. Good value. Located right next to a Safeway. Many restaurants and shops around. Steps from the lake. Overall gold experience. Rooms were pretty clean.

Great location

Close to shopping and a very nice restaurant behind the inn, that we ate at both nights that we stayed there. Easy place to relax and not have to drive in heavy snow storms in the evenings.
