If you're bar isn't too high, it will pass. -cons: Hair in shower soap dish, shower head barely shoots water, temp of water changes sporadically, make sure to bring shower shoes, remote control greasy, cigarette burn hole and hair on sheet (under the cover), electrical outlets not near headboard (for people who own electronic devices), generally old school...

We booked this place on Hotels.com, who we have had a lot of luck with. Well, our luck finally ran out! Upon arriving at the hotel (laughable term really), my wife went on to check in while I unloaded. She came out and told me she had a bad feeling about the room because the lobby area was a giant...

Do NOT stay here! They are NOT Econolodge anymore. The accommodations were OK for the price. But the service was atrocious! Our room wasn't ready even though we arrived well after check-in. We were first told they couldn't accommodate us but after we pushed, saying we wouldn't be able to find a place to stay on zero notice, we were... More

First, this is not, by any means, a hotel. I had read a few reviews on the Sun Ray MOTEL before booking. The older reviews were really bad, newer reviews were better. The prices in South Lake Tahoe are very steep in July/August. We paid $140+ for a basic room (Saturday night) and that was pretty much the cheapest I... More

Hot Saturday at 4:00 PM, needed toilets and showers. (We came for wedding). Horrendous to charge us $168.00 without advising us that currently there wasn't running water. Customer service nightmare!

only if you really can't afford anything better. they are not Econolodge anylonger. Probably they have lost the franchise due to very poor quality of basically everything. Friendly crew, but chaotic !!

I normally stay pretty close to the lake when I visit Tahoe but this time I decided to stay a little further inland. When I showed up, I was greeted by a very nice woman at the counter. My reservation hadn't gone through but she got me a room. When she noticed that I was military, she gave me a... More

I stayed here last year and it was very dirty and dumpy, but since they have new owners a (cute sweet family) it is like a hotel, they have painted every room and put all new carpet in every room and beds, If you are looking for a simple clean quiet and safe place to stay this would be the...

It was clean, but the facilities were old. Bad service, took so much time in our check in process and the receptionist was not kindly. At night the person in the lobby was drunk and told us that they did not have extra towels or pillows. Bad experience and breakfast was terrible!
