You won't find nicer people on the planet than the folks at 7 Seas Inn. They are very friendly and helpful. Genuinely good people. Our room was small with not a lot of space to spread out luggage but the room was clean and nicely appointed. The shower was fantastic - lots of hot water and pressure. They make a... More

Thank you so much for your kind review. We pride ourselves on providing the very best experience for our guests that we can. Our inn, built in the early 60's, does have unique styling and a homey feel, and part of that cozy feeling comes from the smaller room size traditional to the architecture of the time. We understand it... More

We just stayed at the 7 Seas for our first Tahoe trip, and the gang was great! We had our little pooch Snoopy with us and they treated us well. The rooms are comfortable and nice for the reasonable rates they charge. Breakfast in the morning is simple but sufficient with tasty breads. The location is great, walking distance to... More

I’m sure Snoopy would like to return for a few days this summer (Lake Tahoe’s Kiva Beach is pet-friendly). Thanks for taking the time to write a review and for your kind words. We hope you come back very soon! More

Our time at this Inn!!!! The friendliness of the staff, the dog friendly touches that included water bowls and potty pick up bags were nice touches. The continental breakfast was just right, the bed SUPER comfy (and I have a TERRIBLE back), the "clean up rags" to save bath towels available in the rooms for wet puppy feet to me... More

When the reservation was made I asked for a ground level unit as stairs are very difficult to navigate. Tim assured us that we would have a ground level unit, king size bed with a fireplace. True to his word that is exactly what we got. Each unit is different in it's decor. The cleanliness of the unit is about... More

The folks at the front desk and the man at the bar were so nice and helpful, and very welcoming. It was in a great location, and i would enjoy returning for another visit. They have a nice selection of beers, wines and drinks at the bar.

Thanks so much for taking the time to review our Inn. Not many people mention our bar, and it’s a great place to unwind and share stories with other guests in the evening. Being within walking distance of the Casino and other venues means an after dinner drink or two is no problem and won’t put a damper on your... More

From the outside the Seven Seas looks like 80% of the existing drury South Lake motels. The minute you walk into the office your opinion changes. The man at the front desk was very friendly. He was helping the another guest ,asked if I had a reservation and without delay gave me a key without registering-we could settle up later.... More

The people at the 7 Seas Inn are wonderful folks who made us feel right at home. We had a great time on a 3 day mini ski vacation. The rooms are not generic cookie cutter rooms, they have a bit of character to them and you can tell that everything is well cared for. All the rooms have a... More

Overall, this place was a great place to stay. It looks a bit dreary from the outside, and the rooms area bit cramped and need some TLC. The bed was so squeaky it woke us up at night.

Thank you so much for your comments. I hope you mentioned the squeaky bed while you were here. We’ll get right up there and oil and tighten that baby up! :-) Everyone loves the fireplace in the room. Only 5 rooms have fireplaces and they sell-out quickly so book early. We are glad you enjoyed your stay overall, and if... More

We drove down on a raining snowy Friday evening from Santa Clara for a weekend of skiing. What we really appreciated was that Tim from the front desk checked on us a couple of time by texting us, it was really a nice personal touch. The rooms are comfortable, nothing extraordinary.
