We stayed at the Motel 6 South Lake Tahoe for a week. The rooms were typically appointed for the chain and everything was clean upon arrival. Our room was serviced daily by housekeeping (we couldn't find the DND sign), and it was nice to come back to a fresh clean room every day. A couple of things to bear in...

But I was expecting a little better. The TV was the oldest I had seen in even a Motel 6 for over a decade. The rooms were clean, but dated. This was a very large complex so I would have thought it would be updated. The complex has a laundry/dryer room so that was very helpful. This location is on...

A little better than camping, you don't have to share your bathroom. Pros are not sharing bathroom with strangers and you get a coffee maker/mini fridge/micro in room. Convenient b/c you can go to the grocery store to get meals. Cons--dirty, and small. There arent many good Restaurants in SLT. We keep looking for that great hole in the wall...

We didn't want to pay too much for a room cuz we knew for the most part that we were just going to be sleeping there. The good: Very friendly staff, very clean rooms, location was good The bad: The highway was loud in the room, and there was no coffee pot in the room. We brought our own coffee...

A handy place to stay for the price. Fridge and microwave in rooms make this an ideal place to stay. Close to all the fun and snow and shops. Clean yet not refurbed yet. Comfy beds and clean bathrooms is all i need and all you get here, but super stopping place. We spent 4 nights here and loved it

Let me start off by saying that I work for a 4 star hotel and major branded hotel. So I know the ins and outs of hotels. When I waited until the last minute to make my travel plans for NYE I was looking at paying $400-600 at the "casino/strip" hotels. I work for a hotel -I'm not paying those...

Oh, good lord what a dump!!! Not only is it as far away from the middle of town as you can get, but it is in need of some serious upkeep. When we walked into the lobby, it stank of stale humid urine, so bad that I had to leave and go outside and let my husband sign in, then...

this happens to be one of the worst hotels that i have ever stayed at. the MOMENT i walked into the hotel room, i could see countless things wrong with this room and hotel.
