we arrived late 4am i ask the lady if we can atleast stay until 12pm she say i need to pay 20 each room. not considerate

Very reasonably priced hotel with caring staff and most basic amenities in a convenient location in South Lake Tahoe.

Good location , comfortable beds , and reasonable cost

Great for the price!! We stayed in other motels, even more expenssive than tjis one, but in awful conditions. Rhis is definitely better than the average

Very accomodating staff for my mobility limitations. Shortest walk from room to parking spot; Excellent donuts for breakfast.

Good location. Rooms are ok, clean-ish. Breakfast is a joke, basically just coffee. Ok for the price during the week, horribly overpriced during weekends. I only stayed there one night, wouldn't want to stay longer.

Nice staff, however hotel is very old and rooms we crowded with way too much furniture. Bed was terrible. Wish I could've have given better review, the staff was terrific, however the hotel did not meet my expectations.

Having a one year old, it's not easy traveling. The hotel staff made our visit comfortable and hassle free!

The location is very convenient (between Ski Run Blvd and Safeway), the room was clean and odorless, had a fridge, a microwave, and a flat screen TV. The only downside is that the wireless internet was slow and unreliable.

I made a reservation on-line, and requested a roll-away bed. The options information seemed to indicate they had one. There were 3 of us and the room only had two double beds, not big enough for all of us. So upon check-in when I asked about he roll-away bed, the clerk said "We do not have those".

The room is nice and clean Convenient and quite The lenin are old

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.

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.

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

Sufficed our stay in the hotel. Value for money. Served our purpose to stay and sleep.

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.

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

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!

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.

The hotel was okey. The amenities it says include the pool but the pool is empty. The room overall needs updating. But if you are looking for a place to sleep and for the price, this is ideal.
