Great value for Lake Tahoe. Old school motel that has had some nice renovations. Large, clean room with kitchenette. We had room with balcony & lake view. Nice little pool. Decent complimentary breakfast.

... still not much around. And we were in the area where all the Donner Party stuff went down. But fortunately we were able to get in and fuel up (after a couple of unsuccessful attempts - too small and not enough clearance to pull the camper in).
