Very good value for money. Great location, terrible WiFi even if you pay extra and the walls are very thin. Had a refrigerator in the room and the staff was friendly. Warm, clean, comfortable and cheap.

The motel is located pretty close to south lake tahoe. The price was good also. My only issue was the Internet speed that you pay for sucks, and the signal for it was spotty. My other issue was noise. We could hear word for word conversations of the people partying next door tell about 3 am. Very thin walls.

I really like Motel 6. The guys at the front desk are allways so friendly. We checked in before check-in time and it wasn´t a problem she looked for rooms which where cleaned up and give us the key. And what I really like, they don´t charge dogs, I don´t understand why some Motels charge dogs or if there are...

I've stayed here in the past after a day on the mountain and it was ok. This time when I tried to check-in it became obvious that I should never stay here. I checked in at the front desk and had no issues. When I arrived at our room I opened the room and it smelled like someone had just...

Motel 6, nothing new under the sun. Middle of November Motel 6 was more expensive in South Lake Tahoe than many other hotels, but I needed something quick and cheap. If I hadn't been exhausted, I should have looked around a bit more as no one was in town and I could have gotten something a bit more deluxe with...

Stayed here after a long drive, first place we seen, so we stopped.. Couldn't find a place to park, the night front desk clerk was a jerk, acted like he could care less.. Had to pay for crappy wifi. The room was nasty, smelled like smoke and pets...The blankets on the beds were literally for 3 year olds, 1 pillow...

We were two couples and stayed here in September 2015. We were driving between San Francisco and Reno and decided to spend a night a Sth. Lake Tahoe. The area has a plethora of accommodation available. We chose to stay at Motel 6. To say the least - it was cheap ($US 54 for the night). The room was basic...
