EconoLodge Cheap Motel

Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe's Cheapest Motel?

The South Lake Tahoe EconoLodge is a great value for those seeking to minimize hotel costs and maximize outdoor fun at beautiful Lake Tahoe. This very basic motel was renovated in 1997 and is operated by the EconoLodge chain. You can expect a clean room with few amenities about 1 mile from the South Lake Tahoe casino strip. The bathroom was particularly clean.

The motel's front desk staff will check you in and assign a room. The service doesn't go much beyond those two basics. There are no charges to the room allowed after check-in, such as phone charges. This is great -- in that local telephone calls are free -- and you can use your calling card easily.

The room does include a color television, soap & shampoo, and heat. The motel's most notable absence is air conditioning. This is not usually an issue with Tahoe's cool evenings and the motel's providing of an electric fan for the windows. The color television does not include a remote control, but does include a radio. There is no alarm clock for the room.

In general - for a great value -- we paid only $35/night during the extreme summer high season during a golf tournament -- the EconoLodge is a screaming deal for your money. Rates range from $35 - $80 per night typically. Why not spend money on great restaurants, boat cruises, golf, or casino gaming -- rather than on a hotel room?
