Welcome

The J. Marklee Toll Station Motel is a friendly, family run motel and restaurant offering clean, comfortable accommodation and home cooking in the beautiful Eastern Sierra village of Markleeville, California. Both lodging and restaurant have been owned and operated by Sandy Matlock since 1990.

Markleeville sits 28 miles south of Lake Tahoe on the banks of Wolf Creek where it joins with the East Fork of the Carson River. It is the seat of Alpine County, the least populated county in California, with just 1100 residents (your eyes are not fooling you).

Surrounded by mountains, beautiful forests and pristine lakes it's an ideal base for year round recreation such as Hiking, Fishing, Cycling, Snow Sports, Hunting, Rafting, Mountain Climbing and Landscape Photography.
