Days Inn South Lake Tahoe

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Overpriced for budget room, I payed $60 for a place right down the street that was just as OK. But your place if you love the smell of cleaning fluid greeting you when you open the door.

Accused me of having a fog at checkout and charged me $300. When I denied a dog in my room, owner yelled at me and called me a liar in front of my kids! Terrible customer service!!! -10

Hot tub was not working. It was number 1 on the list of why i booked this hotel.

I had a good stay. I would have liked there to have been a mini fridge and microwave in the room for convenience.

The room was old and drafty. You could see daylight through the bottom of the door and my wife froze through the night. Good location... bad experience.

This is a clean, friendly hotel with a great location near the beach and many restaurants, bars, and shops. You can't beat it for the price. We always stay here when vacationing at Lake Tahoe.

Good location close to everything. Room is not so clean and needs to update.

Below average hotel and amenities. Plus for location. Everything either is old or needs updating.

a little spendy for budget but it was a holiday weekend. would probably stay again

The Pictures Deceive... The Tiny Spa is 10feet from the Sidewalk on Highway without a privacy screen or a light switch for nighttime.. POOL NOT HEATED! (reason why I picked this place) as advertised!.. My Room Linens Old, Scabby.. one Dollar Store Picture in the room.. The Door was too small for the Door Jam. Light from the outside entering the room. The Curtains didn't provide privacy. They weren't hung on a rod where the curtain touches the walls ..Shower Dripped all night. Non Smoking rooms with Tin Cans for Ashes right outside the doors!! Stinky!!. Bathroom window next to the Garbage Dumpster.. The Breakfast.. Toast, No Fruit, Dry Cereal... Weak Coffee.. Not up to the Days Inn Quality Level... Would Love a $$ Refund... This was a pleasure trip... Lousy

There were several things that I needed improving. First the wall heater in the bathroom ( room #9) would turn on and off by itself and would get very hot; somewhat of a safety issue. Second, the carpets were stained, and third, the beds seemed old and lumpy/ uncomfortable. Also, the continental breakfast was a on the skimpy side. Overall, I was not impressed.

Stay was good, great location, friendly staff and enjoyed the jacuzzi.

It was a steal for the money. Coming back soon for one more weekend before the end of the season

Small but a decent place. Would of liked a better breakfast.

Good location close to all South Lake Tahoe activities. Also via by back road when Tahoe Blvd is backed up. Hotel is old and rundown amenities and linens.

Great location for restaurants and lake access. Hot tub was small but hot and clean. Free shuttle bus to Heavenly is 3 min walk. Local coffee shop across the street, Hot Gossip, excellent expresso and breakfast burritos. Pillows were lumpy but overall good value.

This is a budget-minded motel for Lake Tahoe, so if your expectations are properly set, then you won't be upset by the lack of extras. It's a room with a bed, a bathroom, clean sheets and towels (rough), a TV with cable, and free wireless internet access (kinda slow as far as "high speed" goes). There's nearby access to the lake, dining, shopping(?), gambling, and Heavenly resort. Biggest complaint: my room (and I imagine every room) isn't particularly soundproof.

The staff was a bit stand-offish, not very happy for the business, I'm guessing. Not the best personality, but the room met our needs. Not very much of a Continental Breakfast.

Our room was cheap and it was obvious that you get what you pay for. It was an older place that needs updating (the pillows and mattresses were lumpy and old, the carpet dusty).

The room was OK and staff were nice. What I do not like the is this review I have to make. I can not get out because it is to short.

Dear guest, our hotel policy regarding pets is clearly stated at check in and your signature on the registration card acknowledges it. It is unfortunate that you have chosen to violate the hotel policy, but by doing that you have become liable for the financial penalty associated with such violation. Thank you, Days Inn Management
