After the cancellation time (Tuesday), the conditions in the South Lake Tahoe area turned hazardous. The was a large forest fire west of the city. The Air Quality Index was about 420. The EPA considers levels above 300 labels to be hazardous, and advises everyone to avoid all physical acuity outdoors. Early Wednesday I texted to both the hotel and Travelocity, that I would not be coming that night. The hotel still charged me the full price, with no concern for my safety or health. I asked for a refund, but the hotel refused.

This motel is the most disgusting I’ve ever been in. I walked in and walked out. They should not be able to rent these rooms out. Not sure when the motel pictures were taken but not the same. Walked over to the casino motel got a nice suite for cheaper.

I paid almost $400 for the worst motel experience ever. Lobby is always locked no employees ever available. You can only check in at 4 pm. It then takes over an hour because 1 person is trying to check everyone it at the same time. Resort fee of $16.50 per night, for what? Room is so deteriorated missing smoke detector, air conditioner couldn’t cool the room just look at Yelp to see the pictures of this disgusting room.

Terrible experiece, rooms look nothing like the pictures! Paint peeling off the walls, damaged floors, beds that are super hard, ac and heat vents were disgusting, small amount of mold in the shower. Took them 30 mins to show up after calling them to let me check in without apology. Blames everything wrong on covid, and upcharges for the smallest things. The pool was dirty and on top of it all I found fleas in our room. I really feel like we got ripped off and the front desk employee basically told me the guests at this hotel were not a priority for him. Go stay somewhere else, this flea hotel really put a damper on our vacation.
