Tahoe City Inn

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The room was ready and clean when we arrived. The hotel was quiet and comfortable.

The lady who works the desk is snotty and rude. This place is a dump. Don't waste your money going here

I always stay here for ski trips. It's basic, but it does the job. Staff is always friendly and my room has always been clean.

Aloha. The Inn is prety cool and very well located in Tahoe City. Safeway next door, Dave´s ski rental shop, Olympic bike Shop for bike rental, the best restaurants around the corner all 5 minutes away, after all you are here to enjoy and play,....cheers

Bed was comfortable, Jacuzzi was great, breakfast was ok! Not clean in the room, jacuzzi or outside the rooms! Lack of maintainece, cleaning, needs work! Would not recommend!

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

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)

Small, but clean; Warm, but no internet; big bed, but small shower place.

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.

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.

Very basic room with the only shower located in the hot tub.

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.

Our stay was great, the only problem was at check in . Evidently there was a change in the way Orbitz notified the hotel of our reservations.

got there late; crashed and left early. excellent price for north side of Tahoe. not the darkest rooms, but certainly adequate.

This motel is very centrally located in Tahoe City. The rooms are basic but clean. The front desk is helpful. An excellent value if you don't plan on spending lots of time in the room.

WORST PLACE I EVER STAYED.

no cable so we can not watch tv first day.microwave not working.after storm nobody clened parking so we have to stay until after noon in room and wait them to clea snow so we can pull out car.room was so felty .carpet was fuul of dirts.no dvd player in room.

Don't let the outside look fool you. really nice room and clean. I and my girlfriend were kind disappointing when we saw the outside of the hotel. However, the inside may amazes you.

I stayed at this hotel New Years Eve with two of my friends and after moving here from the Tahoe Inn, I must say we were pleasantly surprised. I picked this hotel because it was one of the cheapest places to stay on NYE, so I expected some dirty, run-down shack. Instead, the Tahoe City Inn had really nice rooms, a helpful staff, and a continental breakfast. Not to mention the jacuzzi tub in our room! I would definitely recommend this to any travelers in the Tahoe City area!

decent room, great shower. Excellent location to walk for breakfast and dinner.
