“Love this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

We live in Placerville, one hour from Lake Tahoe. When we want to get away for a weekend to Tahoe we always stay here. We love this place. They are pet friendly which is #1 because we have an old blind dog who goes everywhere with us. They are close to the casinos and dining and they have a very relaxing property, i,e. grassy area to lounge around outside, nice landscaping, plenty of parking. The rooms are a bit outdated but who cares. They are clean and comfortable and priced right. The owners are nice and friendly. If you want foo foo and snobby this is not your place. The only draw back is they seemed to be booked full, so reserve early.

I shall never forget the welcome we received. Chatted to the owner for ages before going to our room which was very well appointed. Breakfast was a joy as the owner gladly shared his expert knowledge of the area telling us what places to visit and what to avoid. He went over routes and maps to see as much as possible and thanks to him we really did see some fantastic places. Wish we could have stopped longer as it is a truly beautiful area.

We were coming up to Lake Tahoe for the American Century Celebrity Golf tournament and were looking for an inexpensive place to stay for a couple of nights. I found this motel on line and was impressed with the reviews so we thought we would give it a try. Although the motel is admittedly one of the older places along the lake, it is well maintained and very charming. The owner and staff were very pleasant and accommodating. The rooms are small but clean. There is a small bar next to the office that is open from 4pm to 10pm every day serving beer, wine and cocktails from $3 to $5, and self-serve breakfast (bagels, toast, pastries, cereal, coffee, OJ, fresh fruit) from 7am to 10 am daily. There is plenty of covered seating on the patio near the office to enjoy your breakfast or cocktail, and the resident dog, Hannah, is a joy. It is a pet friendly place with a small grassy area for your pet to play, complete with it's own fire hydrant. It's located about a block from the Edgewood Tahoe golf course and Harvey's resort and we were treated to the music from a concert at Harvey's outdoor amphitheater and an impromptu, amazing fireworks display one night. The clientele includes people from all over the world and we met some very nice people during our stay. Overall, I would highly recommend the Seven Seas Inn to anyone looking for an alternative to the expensive resorts at Lake Tahoe.

Our family of four (includes two teens) absolutely loved staying here! This is a smaller inn (16 rooms? in all) which turned out to be the perfect size for our July 2014 Tahoe trip! They have a nice breakfast everyday (mostly Continental fare), outdoor sitting areas and its pretty quiet, too. The staff were great (basically three people), helpful, accommodating, etc. I have nothing but positives to say about them. They even texted me on the road to let me know that my room was ready early! They really made the stay worth it.

Location is great, close to the shared Lake beach area (a big +), the Nev. casinos, the gondola to the ski area where there are summer activities, and some local shopping areas. We walked pretty much everywhere. We would definitely stay here again. Price was hard to beat, too. Very affordable. Though there were many other places to stay in the immediate area, look no further than than 7 Seas.

Room Tip: Explain your needs to the manager when reserving. He put us in a larger room that best fit our needs...

This lodging is very close to all activities and very clean and friendly. We will definitely stay here again. Plenty of outdoor seating for sitting in the trees of Tahoe and just relaxing. Bar is open evenings.

We knew we were headed somewhere special when we received a text from Timothy informing us that our room was ready and we were still hours away! We replied that we were in the midst of a leisurely drive around the lake and he quickly sent back a personal recommendation for a great photo spot--who does that in 2014? Upon arrival we found the owners just as warm and gracious as their employee.

The rooms are small and there isn't much room to park, but that doesn't matter if you like natural beauty and friendly hosts. If we were to ever return to this area we would stay here again.
