Motel 6 South Lake Tahoe

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I like the pet stays free, pool and friendly staff. But I don’t like the bathroom, cause I see sand, dust,... also, the microwave has leftover food stains on the rotate glass plate. The cleanses has to be improved.

Good location. Staff was helpful. Rooms were not cleaned to standard and had smoke smell even though it was a non-smoking room

Really overpriced for a run down motel. Loud neighbors, uncomfortable beds, broken lamps and AC.

The toilet did not flush well and our bed and towels were not restocked.

This was the dirtiest room I've seen. The floors, light switches and bathroom fan were all disgusting. These are all things very easy to fix but have been ignored for a long time. This was supposed to be a non-smoking room but stunk like cigarettes. I'm tired of the dog rooms being gross. What's dog "friendly" about that?

Poorly maintained and homeless camps all around the hotel

I was impressed with the renovated room and how quick staff was to accommodate with any requests we had regarding the room.

Great location. Staff was disorganized and made us wait for our room

Location is great. The restroom was slow to flush and bathroom sink was very slow drain. Needs better plumbing service. Hotel should have quiet hours signs for the residents, our neighbors were talking and smoking outside of the room on a Monday until 2 am.

Basic, clean, friendly staff. There was a grocery right across the street

The room is quite small and the air condition is quite dirty. I guess you get what you paid for...

For a value motel, this fit the bill! Wasn't expecting Ritz-like accommodations, just something basic to sleep in after spending the days out hiking/skiing.

Shady people, construction, no WiFi, old box television

Stayed for one night en route between San Francisco and Mammoth Lakes/Devil's Postpile. It served its purpose - a decent bed, a shower, etc. There was some overnight road construction that night, and we had the corner room near the construction...but the curtains were good enough to keep the additional lighting out. Check in and check out were simple.

It was a quit stay and the staff was great. The check in was super fast under 5 min. And they respected our privacy

The room was very badly maintained. Not clean floors - it was sticky. The heating system didn't have proper controls - Either the room would get super hot or cold; there was no way to adjust the room temperature to a comfortable temperature. We stayed here for a cold night in January. WORST OF ALL - WE COULD LITERALLY HEAR EVERY SOUND FROM OUR ADJACENT ROOM AND OUTSIDE PARKING. All night we kept hearing our neighbors talk, cars moving in or out of the parking, dogs barking etc. It was as if there were no doors or walls at all. This is one of the worst rooms I have stayed at. I felt bad paying sk much price was too for this kind of room. Will definitely not recommend this. You are better off sleeping in parking lot
