This hotel is at a great location. Its 10 mins walk to the beach and 5 mins walk to restaurants and gondola ride. Staff is friendly, room was clean but carpet was old and icky. But this was the best location we could find for the price. Room had TV(old CRT), refrigerator, microwave and AC all in good working condition.

I decided to stay at the Blue Lake Inn because I had done a lot of traveling this summer and was tired of paying outrageous prices for hotels. I guess you kind of get what you pay for! This motel is in a great location. Most of my family were staying at the Marriott Grand Residences (about 3x the price,... More

Let me just start with saying that Blue Lake Inn is located 5 minutes walk from both the beach and the village. That's great! Blue Lake Inn has nice and clean swimming pool and jacuzzi. That's good! So +2 points from me. But the rest was just awful! We had a small chihuahua with us and were given a "dog... More

First, let me preface this by saying if you're not staying at any of the big name casino/hotels at South Shore, but you want the ability to stay near and walk to them with about a less than 10 minute walk, this place fits the bill. The room was clean, but not kept up to date. CRT TV (no flatscreen),... More

Great location for the Celebrity Golf tournament. It was a last minute booking,we paid $600+ for 4 nights. It was safe and decent. The pool was nice and there was a great Jacuzzi. There wasn't enough parking and we parked across the street but it was close enough. We didn't walk barefoot on the carpet- they really needed to be... More

South Lake Tahoe is expensive, so I decided to try the Blue Lake Inn because it was not as costly as the other locations. Plus side: The office girl was helpful and courteous. Really a sweet girl. Free Wi-Fi; comfortable bed, hot shower. Bad side: Room 105 would hardly close. I had to take a shoe to hit the side... More

Just needed a place to stay for one night. It was pretty clean but the carpets seemed really worn. Made sure we kept our socks or sandals on at on times. We passed on the continental breakfast. Nothing exciting about it. Overall nice stay. Would stay again for the price.

Stayed here for 3 night in May while hiking Mt. Tallac. The rooms are older but clean. We had a Jucuzzi tub for two in our room and it was great for relaxing after hiking. The bed was pretty hard - but we always bring a queen size air mattress just in case we need one. There was plenty of... More

A simple but enjoyable stay. We arrived in the off season so it wasn't tremendously busy around the town as the gondola was closed so the rates were fantastic. The bathroom was a little dated and rather small but the room was everything we needed. The continental breakfast that is included is good just wish it was open 11am not... More
