  • Howard Johnson Express Inn S. Lake Tahoe

    We had an enjoyable stay at the Howard Johnson. The room was nothing to write home to mom about, but the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The front desk lady was incredibly kind and helpful. The price was also a fair deal. I also like the fact that it was just a small walk away from the shores of Lake Tahoe.

    I found my one stay at the Howard Johnson to be your basic motel event...a lot like a Motel 6, for example. All the way around my experience was good, not great...average per say. The room was on the small side of normal and the furniture had obviously been used, but still was comfortable and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful, and was spot on recommending a tasty Thai restaurant located a few minute walk away. The location was a little off as far as being able to walk to the casinos or major action in South Lake Tahoe. A car is most definitely needed. Although there is some bus service and of course taxis, though they are pretty expensive. For the price the Howard Johnson was fine, but for the amount of options there are on places to stay, I recommend looking before leaping for the HJ.

    Considering that this hotel is located literally footsteps off the lake, it really makes me appreciate the price of the Howard Johnson. It is situated pretty much smack dab in the middle of the happening street in South Lake Tahoe, Lake Tahoe Blvd. This made it easy for our large group to do what we wanted, whether it was ski at Heavenly or Kirkwood, or play the slots at the casino or see a live band at a bar on the California side of town. The staff was kind and helpful, and it was obvious that they wanted to help us have as good of a vacation as possible. The rooms are the basic "motel" layout, and not overly large but spacious enough. Our room was clean, though the furniture was a bit worn.
