The 7 Seas is a fabulous little find and great value. It is walking distance to the center of South Lake Tahoe (casinos, restaurants etc.) Our room was large, clean and cosy with a gas fire, sofa, TV and small dining table. There was a small fridge and microwave in the room and plenty of space for coats, boots etc.... More

This was our second time staying at 7 Seas, mainly because it's dog-friendly, but also because it's a convenient location, and a great value. The hosts, Tim and Grant, are super-friendly and accommodating and make us feel very welcome.

We had a long days travelling getting here and so after some GPS'ing to try and find it we found the location on a nice quiet back street. The room was large but filled to the brim with about 1000 pieces of furniture which made it pretty hard to navigate with our luggage. The reception staff were friendly and forthcoming... More

We enjoyed our stay here while skiing at Heavenly. The bus stop to the Gondola is a short walk down the street. The hot tub was warm and welcomed after skiing all day. Breakfast was fast and easy before hitting the slopes. We enjoyed talking to the staff and we learned more about Tahoe while eating breakfast. Free wi fi... More

The 7 Seas in an excellent choice for a Lake Tahoe visit! The place is located within easy walking distance of the Heavenly Gondola, the transit center where you can take a shuttle to other resorts, plenty of food choices and the sandy beaches of the lake. No car? No problem. However, because it is in a quaint neighborhood with... More

My daughter, my labrador and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 7 Seas. Everyone was so welcoming - we truly felt comfortable from the home style breakfast at the start of the day to soaking in the hot tub. Very dog friendly with wonderful hike to lake options close by. Looking forward to returning.

This was an awesome choice. You are close enough to walk to the casinos or the lift at Heavenly. The beach is just over a block away. No hassles with the crazy parking on the main drag.The room was great, the best being the gas fireplace that provides the heat for the room, But the key is the staff. Tim... More

I lead a hiking group near San Francisco. Once a year we take an out-of-town trip to tackle a mountain outside the Bay Area. In 2014, we chose Mount Tallac, near South Tahoe. Since our trip was a week before Memorial Day, when things get crazy in Tahoe, we had our choice of the countless dozens of affordable motels packed... More

This is a small motel with very personable staff. All basic necessities are provided: wi-fi, microwave, fridge, fireplace, good-sized bathroom, firm bed, simple breakfasts, hot tub. Lots of parking plus a welcoming grass-patch & red hydrant for the dogs! I got a text message from Tim an hour before check-in, saying my room was ready, so I got in at... More
