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

Spend here two nights, nice clean rooms. We had no bath but the shower was good. There 's a little bar that serves cocktails, loved that. There is so much choice of motels in the neighbourhood, but some of them look really shabby. This is a safe stay for a good price.

My husband and I stayed here this past weekend and it was just perfect for what we were looking for... clean, comfortable rooms with mini fridge, microwave, flat-screen TV and a fireplace. Upon checking in, the owner Carolyn was very friendly and just makes you feel at home. Nothing pretentious here. We were within walking distance to everything, which makes... More

This motel is right off the main strip in SLT, making the location great. Also, I doubt you can beat the price and the best part is, you can bring your dog (unfortunately, you can't bring your dog anywhere with you - i.e. the beach)! Service is friendly and down to earth. The motel itself is nothing fancy, but everything... More

Me and my husband arrived at 9:30 pm and Carolyne was waiting for us with a smile. She gave us a permission to enter at the private beach that is very near of the inn. The hotel is very well located, we walked all around the area. The room was very comfortable, clean and with a great wi fi. A... More

This is a family ran B&B. The rooms are clean and have all the little upgrades, flat screen TVs, micro and fridge, great WiFi, and a fireplace in all the rooms. A waterfall and creek just makes your stay perfect. They have a full bar with great mixed drinks, a must stay.

The location of this Inn is great, close to the Main Street and the beach. In fact they have their own private beach for you to use. The accommodation is clean and comfortable and many rooms have been refurbished. Ours hadn't been so it did look rather tired and worn out which was a little disappointing. Breakfast is included and... More

First off-when I was looking for hotels I was shopping by price (who doesn't?) and if they had a breakfast (further money savings for other things), but I understood that I might not get the best hotel experience looking for both. I was wrong! I went on tripadvisor to search for hotels and came across this one with great reviews...and... More

We had a reservation mix up (totally my fault) and the guy in charge (Tim) who may have been the owner or manager (I forgot to ask) was absolutely the best. He didn't have a spot for us, but actually walked us to a neighboring motel and proceeded to get us a room. Then he waived the cancellation fee I... More

Well, we are going back to Tahoe again. We spent 11days in August at the 7Seas and will be returning in October. We owned a small motel in Tahoe in the 90's and like us, Carolyn & crew make all their guests part of their large and growing family. Most guests are repeat guests because we won't go anywhere else.... More
