My husband and I stayed here and it was perfect for our needs. We wanted an affordable place with beach access and walkable to downtown. It's a no frills, clean, affordable spot. We loved the beach access and parking. Short easy walk to South Lake Tahoe downtown/casino area. We would stay again!

The room was clean, but in need of some repairs and updates. Toilet ran. Television was ancient. Not a flat screen. Could not even view HD format. Thankfully we had a tablet to use. Wi Fi worked very well. Did not pay for advanced speeds that were offered. Hotel was full, and speed was still good enough to watch football....

South Lake Tahoe is a bit daunting for choosing accommodation.There is so much available but not easy to make a decision. The price also varies enormously depending on the time of the week. The Bluelake Inn looked nice and it turned out to be a great spot and a nice hotel.Very handy to everything. Nice breakfast as well. The location...

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,...

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...

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...

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.
