We would stop in between every activity as a family, great simple breakfast in the morning, two blocks to a great beach with playground, walk to heavenly gondola and restaurants, friendly staff, s'mores with the kids around the hotel's fire pit. The kids loved it so much they even made thank you notes for the front desk with pictures and are begging to go back.
The hotel is on the water and centrally located for restaurants, etc. We found it handy to have Safeway right across the street. The rooms are clean with comfortable beds. Do not understand the double beds supposedly accommodating two persons each. We had three people in the room, was charged $40 for the extra person, yet had to bring a portable bed for the third person to sleep on. Hotel personnel was personable and helpful. We did not eat at the hotel restaurant, so cannot comment on the food. I would stay here again, but know in advance that a married couple will be sleeping either very closely or in separate beds.
Beautiful view of Lake Tahoe from the balcony. Shortly after sunset after the sky became dark the Big Dipper was right in front view. Also on Wednesday, 10/15/14, due to a light drizzle in the distance there was a beautiful rainbow that lasted for about four hours.
We stayed in a King Bed room. This was a pleasant surprise because when we booked online only rooms with 2 queens were available. We were also pleasantly surprised to find that even though our room was on the second floor there was an elevator (my husband is handicapped). The room was an average size as far as hotels go, plus we had a covered balcony with chairs & Small table, that was nice to find. The TV was a nice size, we had a fridge, free WiFi, free parking, bed was comfy for a hotel bed, and decor/bedding/carpet were not too cheap. The bath towels were scratchy though, but in the grand scheme of things who cares.
We also liked the location. It is a few blocks from the main road which makes it quieter. We stayed at a place right on the main road last time and we could hear every car that went thru Tahoe.... it was an awful night. I was glad to have a peaceful sleep at The Roadway. The hotel is about a 8min walk to the Casinos or Beach.
The continental breakfast was decent too. They had waffles, eggs, bagels w/ cream cheese, toast, donuts, cereal, fruit, juice, coffee, etc. And a large eating area or a nice outdoor seating patio area w/ a BBQ for all to enjoy.
All in all I would say it's a great price for what you get. When we go on vacation we just find a decent place to sleep because we don't spend much time there. So it's nice to have found a good place like this that's affordable and not a dump.
