5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014 via mobile

It's a small hotel with clean rooms and good beds. What makes this place real special is the people that own it and run it the nicest people I have ever met. Great location close to casinos and the beach I will be back

My Girlfriend and I had an awesome experience while at the 7 seas in, not only were they totally hospitable, Delta Airlines lost her snowboard bag and when it finally arrived at Reno the 7 seas employees gave us a ride to the airport to get it because we didn't have a car and we were planning on going boarding that day. 5 min walk to the base of heavenly or the beach, this was my second stay here and I'd definitely go back again.

This place is calm yet inside south Tahoe. Staff is really friendly and helpful. I reached this place little early around 1pm, and he allowed to do an early checkin though it mentioned checkin@3pm at time of booking. Room was good and clean. It look lil old but it had all necessary amenities ... This is definitely not honeymoon destination but it's good for families with kids. They don't have live kitchen but they had good healthy breakfast. They have sufficient parking space. I'm giving it a 5 stars rating bec it's the best in this price.
Gondola ride, shopping complexes, private beach, around 4 casinos are in walkable distance from this place.

Thanks for your review. We do have an awesome location, ideal for travelers who are tired of driving or want to just wander around and explore. All the good stuff is within easy reach. Our affordable rates make it easy for you to splurge a little elsewhere, yet still have a comfortable and happy stay.

It doesn't look much on the outside but it was a nice, comfortable, friendly, safe place to rest our heads for a night. The front staff was really friendly and personable. I felt like this was a small family business and I likes the feel of it. Just a few minutes walking distance to casinos. Would stay here again.

We really enjoyed our stay here. Our dog was truly welcomed and little details such as dog water bowl left out and poop bags made it really easy. The room was large with a gas fireplace and the beds were really comfortable. Lots of small details had been addressed and a tub of rags to wipe down ski equipment was in the room. Breakfast downstairs was in a newly renovated area, super clean and Grant was there with a smile every morning.
The hot tub was clean and well needed after a day on the slopes.
The location was good, easy walking distance to the Heavenly gondola and the casinos and restaurants. We went and saw the Illusions show at the Horizon and it was well worth going.
I would highly recommend staying here, friendly down home people who go the extra mile to make your stay enjoyable. This is not a generic motel, it has a welcoming and warm character which is provided by the owners who have put energy and thought into the details. We would certainly recommend and return to the Seven Seas.

Room Tip: We really liked our fireplace room.

I guess if you want to avoid the expense of the main drag and are looking for a friendly party spot, this might work. One of the ground floor rooms has been converted into make-shift bar, fully stocked, and there is a hot tub in the parking lot. It is very basic, no frills joint, and at $90, not a great bargain. The cramped room was tired (albeit newer beds), and the bathroom was getting a bit grotty, but it is just a 5 min walk to Heavenly, so I suppose it might be good for a rager.

Nice rooms with gas fireplaces. The breakfast/coffee isn't really anything worth mentioning. But overall nice for the price. Really great location, could walk to the lake and the casinos. Would stay here again.
