Booked a room here for only 1 night at a very low price. These motels with low rates, I know what to expect already. Check in is at 3:00, like any other places, but it's strictly 3:00 only. Before that time, there is nobody at the office.
The motel is old, but it looked like the bathrooms were renovated, so they were cleaner and more modern. Upon settling in, I noticed some stains and pieces of hair on the bedsheets and some hair on the towels in the bathroom. It looked gross and made me decide not to even stay overnight. I was on the fence about just driving back to San Jose that night and that made my decision. Seeing that and having Corona be possible just made it feel dirty and unsafe.
At the low price though, I probably could have just draped a sheet over the bed and just gotten more rest before driving home because leaving Tahoe in the dark is no fun at all
