This is a very old and basic motel with a great location. Our room was clean enough, comfortable, and mostly quiet. The staff is very friendly. The breakfast is served from 8-10 AM and consists of coffee, apples, bananas, milk, and two types of cereal. The Internet worked pretty good.

Property and rooms clean, friendly staff. Easy walk to the main drag, Tahoe Blvd, casinos, etc. Property has pet friendly rooms and continental breakfast at office. Good security as we had two kayaks on my truck that were not bothered. Was nice having spa in room.

We got a mid week rate at under 70.00 a night. They had no problem with accommodating our pups, and the front desk person told us where the dog friendly beach is. The room isn't the most plush, but the beds are really comfortable, the room and bathroom are spotless. The pool and hot tub were wonderful to relax in,... More

We were ok with the room, bed was comfortable and clean, bathroom walls missing texture, painted by amateur. We were prepared to rate 2-3 until The desk staff experience next morning- 2 gals sitting behind desk gave us a bit of a " # %! off" with a smile. The breakfast room was awful and unstocked.

The BlueLake Inn is not fancy but it is clean and very conveniently located. Often you can get a great deal at this motel and, honestly, if you are staying at Lake Tahoe you should not be spending a lot of time in your room. The rooms were recently renovated and they are clean and comfortable. This is not a... More

This is a motel. Don't expect anything more than that. It did have ample parking, the AC worked just fine, the TV worked just fine as well. It was quiet during the night and our girls managed to utilize the hot tub. My 2 stars rating comes from the fact that for a very, bare bones, side of the road-like... More

Very clean, pool small but perfect temperature. Very nice hosts. Room immaculate, and smelled great. Breakfast could have more variety with fresh fruit and maybe waffles. Hotel is an easy walk to Lake, casinos and Heavenly gondola.

Very pleasant and accommodating staff, comfortable beds, clean rooms, micorwave and small refrigerator (noisy though) amazingly quiet considering it's very close to the craziness of Heavenly Village, small but clean pool and spa, simple but adequate continental breakfast, beach pass and close to beach access

Our family made a last-minute booking at Bluelake Inn, wanting to introduce the kids to Lake Tahoe on the tail end of a road trip. The hotel's location was great (close to the main highway, also only a couple of blocks from the lakeside beach). Though the property is a little outdated, the room was spotless and beds were comfortable.... More

We stayed for anniversary and we were impressed. I am disabled and when we called to check on handicapped rooms they said they didn't have one. We requested a ground floor room and we got the ground floor next to handicap parking. I highly recommend this hotel. Staff was great.
