“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

We were upgraded to a larger room at no additional cost so our experience may not be typical, but regardless, the seven seas is a gem in many ways. The staff are incredibly friendly, helpful and fun. The grounds are really attractive and having breakfast outside in the morning is quite a treat. The location is very close to both the lake , the casinos and heavenly village. Also a good value. It is like staying with family.

Room Tip: Room 16 is a gem. Room 15 is small and dark. Make sure you know what you are reserving as the rooms...

We stayed for two nights in this motel and found the rooms clean and welcoming, the staff friendly, and the location convenient for walking to the beach or into town. I would recommend the 7 Seas to anyone looking for a good value place to stay.

This is one of the best kept-up little motels in the area. The owners clearly take pride in their business and keep the building, grounds and interiors very neat and clean. Small rooms and no balconies, but there was a fridge, microwave, work desk and it was friendly, quiet and within walking distance of casinos and shops. All you need for a weekend getaway. There was a lot of construction noise near by during the day, but not an issue after 4pm.

I made reservations at 7 Seas Inn based on Tripadvisor Recommendations. I was not disappointed. It is a family style motel, comfortable and very clean. We were in Tahoe for a bicycle ride June 2. One of the employees opened up the breakfast bar and had two pots of coffee ready to go at 5:00am just for the riders participating in the ride. Great customer service! My only recommendation would be to update the leopard print and peace symbol bedspreads in the two rooms we reserved. It's not fancy and there were no marble bathrooms but it is cozy. All four of us said we would definitely stay here again.

It’s great to hear that we might expect to see you again. And thank you for taking the time to write such a pleasant review – it really does mean a lot to us. As far as we’re concerned, breakfast is the most important meal of the day and we insist on making sure our guests start the day off with a very good meal (and in very good company.) We know we enjoy the morning so much more with a cup of hot coffee! Thank you for staying at the 7 Seas Inn.

Three of my friends and I stayed there for two nights. They are friendly and patient. They gave all the information I needed, tourist spots, restaurants, etc. Staying at 7 Seas was a good experience. They serve not only clean environment but offer useful information. Recommend to stay if you go to Lake Tahoe.

This property was clean, efficient, and economical. Every day we would get fresh linens, lotions and shampoos, etc. Lake Tahoe beachfront is only a few blocks from the inn.Free Continental Breakfast is included too. Excellent Price for the Lake Tahoe area!Would stay again.

Room Tip: We got the King Size Bed room which was very private and cool.
