[pct-l] Motel at South Lake Tahoe

Regarding rates at the Sunset Lodge Motel in South Lake Tahoe, the motel has
cheap rates Sunday through Thursday nights, and then the rates are about
double for Friday, Saturday, and holiday nights.  The area sells out as
weekenders from Sacramento and the bay area swarm over Lake Tahoe.  In 1997
the rates were about $32 for a single room with bath, cable TV, and included
pick up and drop off at Echo Lake (call from the Echo Lake pay phone).  

The motel is a five minute walk to lots of restaurants (including fast food,
Chinese, AYCE, Italian, pastry, etc.), laundry, huge supermarket, K Mart,
bookstore, banks and post office.  Ask about the motel hiker box.  There's a
local bus service for two bucks all day, which will take you all over town
(including the casinos).  From the casinos there is a nice bus to Reno
airport for less than $20 (a bargain compared to the $130 cab fare).

Sam, the motel owner is very friendly and helpful.  Truly one of the nicer
stops along the PCT.
