Price and location
The rooms where not clean. We could hear voices all night from adjacent rooms. Had a very hard time adjusting the right water temperature of the shower. Overall I would never recommend this to anybody and will never stay at this place again.
There was hair in the bed. There are only two prong outlets in the entire room so charging a laptop is not possible. We were kept up all night by the people staying above us in a couple different rooms. The people at the front desk were initially nice but when we complained about the hair in the bed they said we will refund you now and you leave or stay and don't ask for a refund tomorrow. We had to argue with them just to give us clean sheets to remake the crappy bed.
We arrived late at night so the desk clerk said we could check out at noon at no extra charge. She was very friendly & wanted to make sure the room was acceptable. It was excellent for the price. The motel was within walking distace of many tourist activities.
It was very non expensive.
The location was not very good. Many people passing by, wandering around, and the parking lot is right next to a very busy street. Didn't seem very safe. But once you're inside the room, you're fine.
Staff was friendly, room was as clean as I expected it to be.
The carpets needed cleaning. The beds were old/uncomfortable. The decor was so out of date I took a picture and emailed it to friends with the text "LOL". The "window" was boarded up. The "breakfast included" meant a juice box and a danish from costco.
I didn't have any problems when i stayed here and would stay here again if i needed too.
The motel is a little close to a busy street and there can be some vehicle noise but i did not have any problem sleeping.
close to casino
shower head not good ,too sharp pressure
Cheap and clean hotel. Staff extremely kind. If you are looking a place near Lake Tahoe just to rest and travel around this is the place.
It was definitely a cheaper end motel, but for the price it was clean enough to stay in for a night or two.
Owners weren't overly friendly, the room had no amenities so to speak. Very old and a bit run down.
The heater was off when we got to the room. We cranked the thermostat up to 75...after 2 hours of the heater going, the room had warmed to 55. We turned the heater to 90, it ran a bit and then shut off and would not come back on. We finally figured out that if you turn the thermostat all the way off and back up, it starts heating again, but will otherwise remain off. After another 2 hours I was finally not shivering. The shower was also low pressure and finicky. There was some hair in the sheets and comforter. The fridge froze our food. The walls are also quite thin.
Nothing is good.
It was just waste of money and I advise you to delete this listing from your Booked.net
I chose it because it was the cheapest one. And then I figured out why. The hotel has no air conditioner. Has bed bugs. It stunk. Bed sheets were brown; very dirty place overall. Pay a little bit more, but book somewhere else. You will be glad you did!
The room had a weird smell. The beds were uncomfortable. We could hear the noise coming from the room next door and roadway traffic. Rooms were simply outdated.
Thunderchief Inn is a nice budget-friendly place with a great location and easy access to the local places for Lake Tahoe. The staff are very helpful and a pleasure to speak too during our stay.
The motel is located next to the large shopping mall and casinos at the CA/NV state boundary.
The quality and the cleanliness of the room isn't up to par, even for the (very low) standard of budget South Lake Tahoe motels. As a somewhat funny episode, the door of the room that I was initially assiged to broke off when I opened it, so I needed to move.
