Reasonable prices and staff member was exceptional. She was there at check in and check out; both were extremely busy times but she was the professional. We stayed at Travel Inn for 2 nights, for a special event and it was a great place to stay. Hotel and our room were both clean. Our room was freshly painted with limited...

Great stay.. New owners and new remodel rooms that look amazing. Staff is very nice and very helpful I have stayed here before but the room has a huge huge improvement and it looks amazing. I am glad that there is new ownership and they are acutely making the improvement that was needed.

This is worst ever motel I have ever seen in my life. They charged me $119 for a small, noisy, dirty and old room that comes without any amenity and doesn't worth more than $30-$40 comparing other motels or lodges in the area. WiFi, TV, shower, A/C...Nothing works... the room was beside the main road and I was unable to...

Except checking out. Floor was not vacuumed, dirty shower, bed was so lumpy, can not get comfortable. Had to wear my flip flop to the shower. Never again. Unfortunately had reservation for two nights, had to take sleep aid to sleep.

Pros: Great Location. Walking distance to the Tahoe Queen and Lake Tahoe itself. Walking distance to restaurants. Easy to find Relatively cheaper than the other 'hotels' in the area. Cons: A very poor bang for the buck despite being a little cheaper. A motel in every sense of the word. In my room: No soap nor hair dryer. Very noisy...

The room has a nasty smell, the door frame was coming apart, it's super hard to lock your door, the ac we had was a conventional fan that plugs in the wall and 1950's heater that does even work. When we arrived there was a big storm that knocked out all power in Tahoe so we had no power for...

We walked into our room and one of the bed covers was stained with BLOOD about the size of a football easy to see.Asked the managers to change everything then went to show me and said "look it didn't soak through" are you kidding me? I said I wanted everything changed which they finally did,It seems...

Checked in after a day of driving around lake tahoe. Found the rates to be reasonable. I now know why. No water in the pool. Toilet tank cracked. Rooms smelled. Staff was pleasant. No air conditioning. NEVER AGAIN!

We might have given this 2 stars -- no AC, pool was dismantled, fairly low-res furnishings, sketchy wiFi. But at least it's one of the more "inexpensive" places in town at ~$100/night and fairly central. However... One night, the guy in the room next door came past our open door and started yelling at us. He said the management told...
