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 Though the property is a little outdated, the room was spotless and beds were comfortable....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.

I stayed in South Lake Tahoe with my partner in the middle of June. The place is absolutely stunning and well worth a visit. We stayed in the Bluelake Inn which was extremely good value for the money we paid. Our room was a great size with a very large double bed, air conditioning, an en suite, TV and dressing... More

We rented 3 rooms for 2 nights for a short business trip. We were all pleasantly surprised by how nice it was as the price was very reasonable. The rooms have all been recently renovated except for the bathroom, but it was very clean. The beds were comfortable and the hotel is very quiet. It is just a block off... More

I used to stay at the Stardust, just across from the Heavenly gondola. Good value place, but a bit too much activity and evening noise. Just behind it is a quiet, clean place at the Bluelake Inn at Tahoe. Bigger rooms, no pull down Murphy bed for a solo traveler,such as I am. Better prices, not as much partiying and... More

Excellent location just 1 block away from the Gondola on the Tahoe side and 2 blocks away from Harrah's + Harveys. The hotel has a small Jacuzzi for those long POW days. You won't find the amenities of a full service hotel, but the staff are very friendly + helpful and you have plenty of restaurants + shopping options literally... More
