First off.. Don't do it. Save your money and sleep in your car if you're that desperate. The door to our room was wide open, the shower head wasn't attached to anything, there were multiple holes in the walls, and the sheets probably hadn't been cleaned in weeks. I've never been more disgusted by a room. I wasn't expecting it... More

Ok ok.. My first impression was crap! I really blew it, but actually it was bearable! The staff was great and very courteous! The place itself needs to be mowed over for something completely new, but Tahoe never completed the rejuvenation project they started many years ago. So I have to say this place is probably one of the cheapest... More

I stayed at the Blackjack Inn over New Years this year with my boyfriend and two of his friends from high school. When we arrived, our friend who made the reservations went to check in and pay for our extra nights (the initial reservation had been made through a third-party site, but he had called to confirm our additional nights)....

I don't really know where to start. Other than the location, everything else is dreadful. Worn, dirty, unmaintained, broken etc. Unless you are really desperate and don't want to spend the night freezing in your car, I would avoid this place. If I had the right kit, I'd opt for my car.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Blackjack Inn for one night in August of 2014. We found our experience to be very good! We arrived at around 10:00pm; the front desk was empty so we rang the doorbell. The sweet lady who runs the motel promptly and pleasantly came downstairs and checked us in. She is from Nepal and...

My husband and I LOVE this place! For the price, you can't beat the location. If you want to spend $$$$ on gas or cabs to/from the casinos, go for it, but this place is 2 blocks away from state line. You get there, you park and you don't need to get back into the car until it's time to... More

I give this place one star. That star is because of its location, across the street from the Heavenly village- walking distance to both the Heavenly Gondola and the Casinos. Other than that, nothing about this place deserves a star. My husband and I stay and ski in South Lake Tahoe quite a bit and do it on the cheap.... More

The Good: The motel is in a great location. Close to shopping, casinos, and great dining! You can walk anywhere you choose. The beach is not too far away either. The Bad: We have stayed in cleaner, better kept rooms than the one we had at the Blackjack Inn. It was old, the lamps were falling apart, and the carpet... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here last weekend for a quick last minute trip to Tahoe. Luckily, this place was located right across the street from the restaurant we wanted to eat at (Fire & Ice - Yum!). It was a great price, very clean, and the owners were really nice and got us in our room quickly. We also... More
