“Doggone Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

I wanted to stay in South Lake Tahoe after Thanksgiving because my friends (who have a small cabin) were going up with their family (we're all from the SF bay area), and because I had a voucher for free slot play at one of the casinos at Stateline, and, mostly, because I wanted to take my two 5-year old huskies to see the snow for the first time.

On Thanksgiving my boyfriend and I looked around online for a good place to stay in South Lake Tahoe, as my friend's cabin would be full of family (and other dogs). We came across 7 Seas Inn, and thought it looked great. While other motels/lodgings don't allow guests to leave their dogs in the room unattended or un-crated, 7 Seas has a policy that allows you to leave your dogs, as long as they behave. For those that aren't familiar with huskies, they can be loud..especially when crated. My dog Jack would not have been ok left in a crate. But after a long hike he was so tuckered out he did great in the room with his brother, Spike, unattended.

It was a relief knowing we could let them sleep and hang out with their toys in the room while my boyfriend and I had dinner with our friends.

I definitely recommend 7 Seas Inn, and I will be back!

Room Tip: Remember to look on the floor when you check out to ensure you have all of your dog bowls. I almost...

Pretty much everything you've read is true. This is a really great little place. I arrived before my room was ready and got to meet the owner while waiting in a beautiful outdoor patio area. She it truly warm, welcoming and very witty. All the staff was really nice and knew the area very well. Great recommendations for places to go and things to do. 2 blocks to the casinos. About 3 blocks to the beach. You can't beat the location! I can't imagine a better place to stay in the area. All I can say is I can't wait to get back.

We stayed one night at the 7 Seas on our way to California. It was situated in a beautiful setting in Lake Tahoe with tall trees and an abundance of flowers and green grass. The room was clean and comfortable. Everyone was very helpful in suggesting places to see, shop, and eat. We had our small dog with us and they were very pet-friendly for travelers with animals. We would recommend the 7 Seas to anyone visiting Lake Tahoe.

Thanks so much. People really seem to enjoy our garden area, eating breakfast out there, or just socializing. As one of the few pet-friendly locations here, we are happy to welcome your furry family members. Come see us again soon!

Can you stay anywhere more convenient? Walking to the casinos and restaurants, shops and beach is awesome and returning home after a long night to a warm and clean room… the perfect night. Stay here and you’ll leave with money in your pocket. Come again real soon!

Based on the reviews here, I chose this place to stay for one night in late October. Spotless comfort and very friendly hosts. Excellent value. I would definitely choose this place again the next time I'm in the area.

Very nice and friendly place to stay any time of the year. We travelled for 1 day to see Tahoe lake and then return to San-Francisco. The hotel is easy to find. It is situated close to the beach and to the major restaurants of the city.

My boyfriend and I stayed here in August for 2 nights. It’s a small but really cosy motel/hotel, it has a real personal feel to it. Each room has its own individual décor, we were in the Rose room. Nice room, fridge was very useful, nice little added touches such as make-up remover, shaving cream and old rags for any mishaps! Great location, just a few minutes walk to the beach, Heavenly Village and casinos. Nice selection of cereals, toast, bagels etc for breakfast. We sat in the patio area outside to eat our breakfast which was very pleasant. The owner was often about and she was very friendly, we shared a beer or 2 with her one evening! I hope her idea of using beer bottle tops for the new bar sign has come to life! Overall a great place to stay at a great price.
