“Hidden place in South Lake Tahoe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

The 7 Seas Inn at Lake Tahoe is a quiet cosy place under pine trees with ample parking space. The rooms are clean and individually funished with a fridge and microwave - some even with a fireplace. So not to compare with properties operated by a hotel chain. Free WiFi and Breakfast is also availabe. The owners are very nice and helpful.

Thank you for your lovely comments. We know the area very well and are always happy to recommend local restaurants – there are some very good ones close by. Great to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to welcome you back to the area soon. It’s crazy that so many hotels still charge for WiFi… it’s 2013! “Did the desk clerk have a mask and a gun?” (that’s one for the Downton Abbey fans out there!)

My mom and I stayed in South Lake Tahoe for 2 nights at the 7 Seas Inn. Our room was the perfect place to come back to after our day hikes in the cooler weather of early May. The rooms were cozy and quaint and had a refrigerator and microwave. The rooms were also very clean when we arrived.

The owners were very hospitable and friendly. Our heater was not lit, so we could not get it started and the owners quickly took care of this. As we checked-out of our room, the owners also gave us a highway conditions update because it snowed our last night there.

I recommend this Inn to anyone looking for a great deal and cozy stay in Tahoe.

This is a nice place to stay if you are looking for a day's trip to south lake Tahoe. Located very close to Heavenly ski area and the lake. Breakfast was good, ample parking area, fire place in the room was pretty good.

We stayed for 4 nights, the place is great value and in a perfect location, 5 minutes from beach, cable car & casinos.

Hot tub was great & the free breakfast including coffee etc good too.

Loved Tahoe & Nevada it was a great base.

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.
