“Clean room, great price, dog friendly.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

The owners were very hospitable and loved our little dog Cody. We felt at home there for two days and other people traveling through were also very nice. The room was very clean and comfortable. The plus was continental breakfast in the morning with outdoor seating and a waterfall to listen to along with the birds.

My husband and I stayed here for one night. The location and included beach pass are convenient, rooms are super clean, and the service is great. This is definitely a motel - small, dated rooms, and no fancy extras. Room air is limited, faucets are iffy, but it is still a good choice for an affordable, practical, quiet, and friendly stay.

Great value for money, owners are super friendly. Went out of their way continuously to make sure we had a fantastic time at Tahoe. They were really informative about our onward travel plans and assisted in every way they could. Customer service was first class, thank you so much!

We were a little surprised when we entered our room because it was smaller than we thought it would be. It's good for 2 people and I had to picture it as being snug during the winter. The owners were great. They make you feel like you're visiting family. Their continental breakfast was perfect. Different breads and spreads with coffee, milk, and juice to drink. Cereal was also included. It is walking distance to a private beach ran by some local hotels. They have a jacuzzi that was perfect after a day of hiking.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. The 7 Seas Inn is happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day - particularly before hiking - so we are happy to provide it for our guests. A jacuzzi is the least we can do for our sore hikers, so we’re glad to hear you enjoyed that as well!

We were at the 7seas with family and rented three rooms for four nights. (Thank you to the true travelers on trip advisor, you have never steered me wrong!) The rooms were clean, comfortable and affordable. After being gone all day we would arrive back at the hotel and all gather at one of the outdoor tables to relax and listen to the soft inviting sounds of the fountains. Each morning and evening we were greeted by the owners and I felt like I had gone home to moms. They were always around, but never intrusive. We had many questions and they were full of answers. They gave great advice on where and what to do. We were walking distance to the casinos and the private beach, which they provide a free pass. We enjoyed the breakfast every morning, don't be shy to look around the breakfast area. There is OJ in the fridge and waffles in the freezer. Also, I loved all the flavored syrups for the coffee. It was a very wonderful experience and I know we will be going back. Four days just wasn't enough.

We pride ourselves on providing our friends with an atmosphere that makes them feel at home and it’s a pleasure to hear that you felt like you were in your own Mom’s backyard - That’s great! The most important thing in the morning is a good cup of joe, so we appreciate your kind words about our java selection as well. Thanks for taking the time to review us here on TripAdvisor and we look forward to seeing you on your next visit to South Lake Tahoe.

The casinos have some tempting deals, but then you are stuck inside a closed room without being able to open a window.

If you stay at a motel you get to enjoy the glorious Tahoe air and can walk off your meals!

Seven Seas is the nicest motel we have ever stayed in at Tahoe. Everyone is so nice and friendly - perhaps this is because it is a dog friendly motel and dog owners tend to me nice.

You can enjoy breakfast outside next to the small waterfall and beautiful flowers. Owners are very helpful with planning your stay in Tahoe and have recommendations for restaurants for every taste.

Not recommended for people who are scared or do not like dogs. Also - if you want to sleep in late, get a room further from the reception.

We were incredibly happy to hear that you enjoyed our personal service and homey feel. We agree - it’s important when you’re in Lake Tahoe to breath the fresh air. We think everybody, including the pups, deserve a friendly place to stay. Thank you very much for your wonderfully complimentary review of the 7 Seas Inn.
