Convinient and close to ski resort, typical motel, good for one night, cheap

Walk to everything, store, villiage, gondola. Lake 5 minute walk

We had a Great stay, the staff is very nice and helpful. The location is walking distance from shops restaurants and lake.

Our room smelled like cigarettes for the 3 days. It was a good location but the hotel needs some major renovation.

I have stayed at the Blue Lake Inn previously and chose the property again due to its proximity (easy walking distance) to all that South Lake Tahoe has to offer as well as value. Our room was as advertised and well cleaned daily. The staff was pleasant and easily engaged. The property, as many other small hotels in the area, is tired and need of a refresh. The "breakfast" is anything but, with very limited offerings (an easy and inexpensive fix if management chooses to do so).

It’s not the cleanest, but we were so grateful they let us bring our dogs and the staff was great :)

Nice and clean hotel!! Excellent location near the ski lifts and casinos! I'll definitely stay here on my next visit.

Its a reasonable hotel/motel. They call it breakfast, but it really has cereal and bagels with cream cheese, so don't expect more. Walking distance to Nevada border and Lake Tahoe Blvd.

Very easy to check in. The person at the front desk was nice and pleasant. The room was large and seemed clean. Bed and pillows were comfortable. Air conditioning was a little noise. Bathroom was ok but shower was a different history. It has a small swimming pool and small jacuzzi. I did not use it. Parking was free and close to your room and free WIFI. It has a nice area in the back of the hotel with grills and tables for your use. Breakfast was a joke, almost nothing.The best part it is its GREAT LOCATION. Walking distance to the beach, shopping, bars, supermarket and restaurants. Beware, everything closes very early, even for dinner.

Overpriced for a run down facility, chipped and stained tiles, damaged curtains, carpet stains, however very good cleaning service, bedding was clean, they kept the room tidy every day.

Room was not clean, carpet smelled a bit but staff addressed it. offered another room as well, staff is excellent!

Close to the beach and to Heavenly Square. Free beach access pass for up to 6 people was a nice touch.

Hi Anonymous. I'm kind of confused as we do not allow smoking so if your room smelled of smoke someone was smoking inside the room or just outside standing in front of the air conditioner. In either case these are not allowed so wondering why the hotel never received a call as I show nothing in our log.

Thank you for taking the time and leaving us a review. I appreciate all the comments and like I stated on one other review we are a no frills budget motel. Our continental breakfast is described on all sites and with the owner's assistance we have completed one major project every spring/summer when we can actually perform construction. We will continue to do this but unfortunately it does take time. It is like when you purchase a house there are all kinds of changes and upgrades you want to make but it takes time as you can't do it all at once.
