Our whole trip was so great and we are so glad we picked this place. The staff was so nice about accommodating us for an early check in, as well as switching our room before we got there so we could have a better view of the lake. The views were amazing, the room was clean and very nice, the...

I've stayed here a few times and it's now July 4th weekend, a very busy time. It's decor is more rustic mountain like but is very clean and has all of the amenities I need for a short stay. Rooms have mini fridge, microwave, coffeemaker (with bean grinder!), ironing board, flat screen TV, fan for warmer days. Plus the hotel...

friendly staff, my room was on the GF with direct parking in front, of course i didn't book any view... the rooms in the tower must be way better. The room was non smoking but i guess former guests were not that strictly complying and the room smelled terribly. small room, old furniture... carpet floor... the ceiling is the direct...

When we arrived the staff was very kind. The location is right in the center of the city. The room was cozy,clean and spacious! Steps away from the water and walking distance to the best restaurants in town!

Punchline: clean, well run, competitively priced, and solid complimentary breakfast. Pros: *Location - 6.5 miles closer to Alpine than downtown Truckee & Pepper tree is walking distance to most T.City restaurants & shops. *Bed was solid: not a premium mattress, but I have a lean frame that does not tolerate bad mattresses, & I slept well. This one was neither...

The hotel is right off the main road. during the snow storm the covered parking was a huge plus. The rooms were warm and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful, nice breakfast to start the cold day in the snow.

This is an interesting looking hotel across the street from Lake Tahoe, nice central location, very friendly staff. Rooms are very dated, not enough plugs. we asked for and got a Handicapped room, only had a Queen bed, uncomfortable wooden chairs in the room, but there was a fridge, microwave, coffee maker. Room was clean. Bed not wonderful. we would...

This particular reviewer first visited the Pepper Tree Inn during the Summer of 1975 and had a great experience; things have not changed. If you want to stay here, it is easy to find; just look off the main road for the easily recognizable pictured sign. Nearly all the rooms have a relaxing lake view. See the photos. If you...

Nice, older motel and tower right on main drag overlooking lake and all commercial and historical venues. We walked everywhere in town. Well maintained and updated, but smallish rooms. Very friendly and helpful staff; owner manager on-site and checks rooms daily. Outstanding view if you face east (lake). So-so breakfast---mostly carb ladened BUT has in-room coffee makers that grind the...
