Located four blocks from the casinos this small, comfortable and inexpensive motel gets the job done! The location is quiet, beds were okay but the pillows were in need of help. When we checked out the Mgr. went out of his way to show us what roads to take as we headed south. There were fires around the area and... More

I'm not sure who all the haters are? The poor reviews for this inn must be the competition. I get early check in and late check out with no problem. The rooms are clean and smell fresh, they are also large and have a fridge and micro. This may not be the newest and most upgraded motel. If you don't... More

The rooms may be a little dated but it was clean, beds very comfortable and the breakfast although continental is enough to jump start your day. Pool and hot tub and a private beach is a nice touch. It was convenient for Tahoe Queen Cruise and in the evening an easy walk to the Casino. Staff are extremely pleasant, the... More

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
