“Great place and value for family.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

Carolyn, owner, and staffs are wonderful people. They are pleasant, polite, kind, and good people. I would love to go back with my family and friends to this place over and over again. The place is very clean, Clean, did I say Clean? yes. Very clean towels, sheets and pillows, room, .... The price was very good. It is very close to center of South Lake Tahoe close to Nevada boarder. My other extended family members took their business card to make it a place to come again.

Staffs gave me tips on places to go and see. Called me when found my coat there and I totally forgot about it. Good Place to stay, very nice people, neat and super clean, and good Breakfast.

Thank you.

Coming from France, we much enjoyed our stay at 7 seas Inn. People were very nice and the place was very quiet and near the lake. Rooms were clean and the breakfast was satisfying. Everyone was friendly. The room was clean and comfortable, the 7 Seas is close to everything. What a great stay and well worth the money.

My husband and I had a great stay at the 7 Seas. Everyone was friendly. The room was clean and comfortable, the 7 Seas is close to everything. What a great stay and well worth the money. On our first day they cleaned all of the dirt off of our car! Just one of the little extras you will find at this Inn. I would definitely recommend this Inn. We will be back, loved it. I already checked to see if there was a room available for the summer concert with Steve Miller. They were all booked up, because it is such a great place to stay.

The 7 Seas Inn is happy to cater to all members of the family, including the four-legged variety! It sounds like your pup liked our fire hydrant, as well! We are delighted you found the Inn convenient to everything. Thank you for making us a part of your vacation and we look forward to welcoming you back soon!

Briefly, been coming here for several years now for family ski week as well as several 2 & 3 day saurezs. Carolyn, Grant & Tim and Hanna are friendly & helpful. The rooms clean & well stocked
and are being upgraded with new TVs & decor, making them even better!

Conveniently located in short walking distance to casinos, gondola and restaurants.

Can't be beat. We will be back again next year and hopefully couple trips in the summer.

We have stayed at many motels over the country and this was by far the best value for money! A quick 10 min walk to the heavenly gondola, 5 minutes to the casino, with amazing hospitality! We felt very welcome from the moment we got there and it Definately had a "homely" feel to it. The rooms aren't perfect but they are slowly renovating things one at a time, ours was clean and neat with fresh paint and clean bedding. Only thing we would say that needs to be looked into is the showers- varied from scalding hot to freezing cold. But other than that no other issues! Great breakfast!!! As we were use to only getting a donut or crappy stale pastry we were pleasantly suprised with the variety of toast, bagels, muffins, waffles, cereal, fruit, juice, tea and coffee!! Would highly recommend it if you don't mind motels- if you are a snob and want the Hilton experience it is not for you.

I was expecting much better given all the 5 star reviews on Trip Advisor.

The bad:
1. The bed is uncomfortably firm. Neither of us slept well either night. This alone would send me to another hotel. I didn't mind the small room, but I want to sleep well.
2. The other guests. They seem to be catering to groups of friends who want to come up to Tahoe and party. There was loud noise outside of our room each night until past midnight, and since it's a motor lodge set-up with paper thin doors, we could hear everything. Also didn't like the other guests smoking right outside of door.
3. The shower fluctuated from freezing cold to scalding hot. Again, not very comfortable.

Just OK: The breakfast (nothing special, you eat in your room, horrible coffee, selection of bagels, english muffins, cereal and instant oatmeal)

The good: The staff is friendly and you're within walking distance to the Heavenly Gondola. The room was clean.

For the price and with the reviews, I was expecting basic, but nice, amenities. Nothing about our s tay differentiated it from other low-budget motels and given the uncomfortable bed and loud guests I will stay elsewhere when we return to Tahoe.
