Facility looked nice, close enough to be able to get to everything but still be away from it all. They are small rooms but we never planed on spending a lot of time in the hotel. Toilets were loud but they flushed. Pet friendly. Staff was very friendly. They do charge for wi-fi. No breakfast but they offer a coupon...

Rooms in back look out onto a bike path with a little bridge over the Upper Truckee River. Photo was taken from footpath near this bridge, 3 minute walk from...

We were shattered and wanted somewhere quick . Was very basic but clean small room. Fine for one night stay. Close to all amenities even had an outside small pool. Able to park directly outside room on ground level.

I have stayed here several times in last 20 years. Clean, cheap, great value. I have become a little more cautious of budget motels in recent years and this one has always been fine. Rooms in back look out onto a marsh and willow grove facing Lake Tahoe which is not visible in the distance, with a bike path and...

My partner and I stayed here for three nights on an Xmas Ski trip. I've stayed at lots of Motel 6's, & this was a good one. Pretty convenient to Heavenly, & all the major stuff, and the staff was pretty friendly, even working with us to move us to a different room after our first night to try &...

Cheap and conveniently located, this Motel 6 should do the job for a cheap ski weekend. Most awesome is that they allow dogs for free. We even left ours in the room in violation of their pet policy, and in response they just called and told us to come make him stop howling (I swear he never does this at...

Me and my boyfriend were on a road trip. We were going to camping in South Lake Tahoe, but it was already dark when we got there and we hadn't booked any campsite. Motel 6 looked nice so we stayed there. It was cheap as for the weekend stay, no more than $60. The rooms looked like new, the motel...

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...
