I did not have a good experience with the Mark Twain Lodge.

Last week, while planning a trip to Tahoe, I looked them up on-line and saw their daily mid-week rate was $60, per their website. However, when I called and tried to book a room I was quoted a price of $69. When I pointed out that they were advertising a rate of $60 the clerk responded "Oh, we don't go by that." Amazing! When I asked why they do not honor their advertised price and if she was aware there are laws against this stuff I was told "You have to talk to the owner, he's not here."

Now here's the kicker. Wife and I ended up staying at another motel, literally right across the street from the Mark Twain. during the two days we were at Tahoe we did not see one car parked at the Mark Twain. I guess I wasn't the only customer turned off by their false advertising!

Can't say how the quality is beyond the problems at the reservation desk.

I've stayed here three time & find it to be one of the best deals on hotels in the South shore area of Lake Tahoe.

Walking distance to the casino's,buffets etc.

A nicely remodled hotel,normally quite,pool,clean ,mircowave 1/2 mile or so walk to the Lake..

All good....

Parking: Ample
Service: Short, but does the job
Price: Great compared to other summer rates

We stayed here one night in July for a concert at the Harvey's Outdoor arena. There's a reason why they are so highly rated on TripAdvisor: good rates for the quality (not only decor and cleaniness, but proximity to activity).

The hotel was remodeled a few years back and looks fantastic. I believe all the rooms have kitchen-nettes (at the minimum, a microwave and refrigerator). Very comfortable and clean, with cabin-like decor.

Walking distance to the casinos, stores and shopping. Great location.

The motel, I believe, is now renamed "Mark Twain Lodge". I deducted one star because the beds were a little too soft for my liking. I personally need back support!

Tip: This motel is not available for booking online (and I hope it stays that way). I believe it is able to retain its great rates because it stays away from Expedia or Orbitz. Booking must be done by calling.

stayed with a buddy for a weekend of snowboarding.  i was surprised at how nice the place was.  basically across the street from heavenly and casinos, walking distance to shops and restaurants.  30 min drive to sierra and 45 min drive to kirkwood.  2 double beds.  could easily accommodate 4.  if you are not too picky about personal space, you could fit 6.  renovated, quiet, clean, newer fridge, newer gas fireplace, tv, kitchenette.  some of the most comfortable beds ive ever experienced in any hotel.  no wifi, but so what.  this is not a fancy 5-star place.  im giving it 5 stars because i cant think of a single thing wrong with it, especially considering its price and location.

We stayed here during the celeb golf tournament.  They were one of the cheapest places around and some of our friends were also there. The outside looks average at best. And the office smells like an ash tray. That being said, the rooms are cute, clean, and remodeled.  
Super close to everything.  
This place is worth staying in. Simple. Does the job.
We will be back.
