The room was clean and the price was a good deal. Aside from the mattress being very firm, my only other concern was that the shower head was too low for standing up - the average person will absolutely have to duck down.

Overall my staying at this motel was acceptable. It's 3 stars motel as you can see from other reviews. You get what you're paying for. Yes. the room is ok, the bed is ok and service is fine, the location is great.

Travel Inn was in a good location for our trip to Lake Tahoe, it was in the southern part on the way up to the North. Was not big or fancy but the room was clean, had fridge, microwave, TV with reasonable cable selection. Eating and drinking places right next door, room was relatively quite, bed was comfortable. I would...

Unbeatable price for the area. Hotel was fairly clean. The problems were: a little noisy since it's by the road, my curtain had some holes on it, shower not good for people that are taller than 5'5". Again best price in Tahoe, and a good location.

To be clear, this is not a five-star place. It is a rating of five for what it is, an inexpensive place to stay. Place was mostly refurbished and very clean. Manager was friendly and helpful. Put in a new router while I was there to improve internet access. Parking is a little tight, but I have been at worse...

We stayed here for 4 nights in mid May 2015. The location provides walking distance access to Safeway, CVS & Brewery next door. We booked the room at a discount through Trivago/Expedia. I was very pleased with the price and location and the room met our needs. We had stayed at that hotel previously & I would stay here again.

We normally stay at the Days Inn, but we ended up booking here at the Travel Inn. Gross, nasty mistake. I booked a non smoking room because I am pregnant and we don't smoke, I know I booked a non smoking room and had even put in the additional comments page to be sure we get a clean non smoking...

The lamp cord was taped and was causing sparks when plugged in. The toilet bowl had a ring and I'm not sure the sheets were clean. There was a tattoo artist in the room next door with people in and out all night one night and the next night I think they were drug dealers. When I complained the wife...

Hotel was a great stay for a rest from the big cities, the trip is well worth it, guaranteed. You will leave feeling your energy regenerated. Just make sure you stock up on food before you come, the local Safeway, CVS, and Raleys can be a bit pricey when it is vacationing season.

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.
