“BEST PLACE In Tahoe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Family Run Motel. Wonderful location. 2 Blocks from the beach with private access. One block from main Rd and Casinos and eating places. Irish Pub has great meals on main street.
Rooms very clean and tidy. Best service from friendly owners.Set in great spot amongst redwood trees.Wonderful breakfast in outside stting. VERY reasonable rates ($58 AU). Could not speak more highly.

Room Tip: All rooms good

We loved the outdoor area. You did not feel like you had to be cooped up in the hotel room when you were finished sightseeing for the day. The landscaping and waterfall were awesome. We were able to interact with the owner, staff and other guests. The room was very clean and you could tell time had been taken to make the place feel like home. Thanks for a great stay!

We really enjoyed our time at the 7 seas and will be returning! It had a homey bed and breakfast feel to it. I loved being able to sit outside and listen to the waterfall while enjoying my morning coffee and letting the kids play while my hubby used the BBQ to make us dinner. They had thought of the little things you may need and if I did need something they were quick to help. The staff were wonderful we had a great time getting to know them :) perfect walking distance from beach and shopping!

Great place for the price. Owners were very nice and very accomodating. We met up with some friends on motorcycles and they made us feel very at home. Rooms were clean and comfortable and continental breakfast was good. Will definitely stay again when in area.

This place prides itself on catering to dog owners. Everything about it, from the hardy old carpets to the pet walking area, to the proximity to good dog walking side streets, says "we love your pets." And it seems to work. Even though my room was small, it was well thought out - access to scalding hot water, rags for cleaning up, microwave, nice-size frig, pillow top bed, windows that open, WiFi, small tables outside for eating the complimentary breakfast or a take-out dinner. So even though I was taken aback at first, I ended up liking this motel a lot.

I would not recommend 7 Seas to anyone who wants a luxury (2 1/2 stars or more) accommodation at Tahoe. AAA does not endorse it. But it does have a charm all its own and the owners are very nice.

Great place; great price. Owners Carolyn and Grant were great! It's clear that they take great pride in their Inn and keeping guests happy. Room was clean, comfortable bed, nice to have a microwave and refrigerator. Great location- I was there in the summer and so loved easy beach access. I think it would be great in winter too- didn't get the opportunity to use the fireplace in the room- too warm! Will definitely stay here again.

I was skeptical too when i wanted to book a room in & seas Inn. After reading the reviews on Tripadvisor.com I took that chance. My stay turned out to be very smooth. The customer service is awesome since folks who run this place are very friendly. The rooms were very clean.
