This property was disgusting and looks nothing like the photos. We left the same day that we checked in and we are disputing our charges thru our credit card company. We have NEVER been is such a dirty room before. This hotel does not follow COVID 19 cleanliness guidelines. Property would not give us the phone number to management. They gave us a email address that no one responds to. We are very disappointed that Expedia does business with this motel...

The room was a disaster. Needs a total gut and update. Walls, carpet dirty, torn, holes in wall. Bathroom sink cracked and chipped, mold on grout and curtain. Fire extinguisher missing, alarms not connected or missing. Had “ kitchen”; cupboards dirty, wouldn’t close, no utensils. I took pics and showed them to lady at desk and got “I’m sorry, new owners are going through rooms”. Was stuck as Tahoe packed this time of year. No way this room should have been rented out. Waste of money, cost was high too. Steer clear of this property.

This place is absolutely disgusting as well as unsafe--do NOT lodge here. Not only were all of the towels stained, there was ripped carpet, water damage on walls and peeling paint. If this is not enough, the white bed sheets and bedspread had blood stains all over them, trash was left from the previous lodger, hair in the bathroom tub, along with dirty dishes left in sink. CLEARLY, this lodging did not clean the room in-between guests. In the current pandemic, this raises serious concerns about potential spread of COVID-19. The advertisement pictures on Expedia are not accurate do not be fooled. I am absolutely abhorred that they charged money for this room.
