“Budget comfort”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

We drove down on a raining snowy Friday evening from Santa Clara for a weekend of skiing. What we really appreciated was that Tim from the front desk checked on us a couple of time by texting us, it was really a nice personal touch. The rooms are comfortable, nothing extraordinary. If you are nit-picky about the bathroom tiles or the shower curtains, this place is a comfortable stay. The toiletries were of a surprisingly good quality. What is great about this resort is that it is a short 10 minutes walk to the Gandola, Tahoe Village and the Beach too. Saves you on the parking cost. Breakfast however, was nothing to rave about. All in all a nice place.

We stayed here for 5 nights last week. The staff could not have been more helpful or friendly. The room we had was warm and clean. Just a few minutes walk away from the gondola, shops, restaurants and casinos. Well deserved of the great reviews on here. I will definitely stay here again. Thank you Carolyn, grant and Timothy for an amazing holiday.

I stayed at the 7 Seas Inn the last 2 weekends in 2 queen bedroom, once with 2, once with 3 people. Both times the room was very clean, comfortable beds and everything worked great.
We used the jacuzzi, which was great. Breakfast is free and you get a great conversation partner too. The owner is really nice and we really enjoyed staying here.
It is only a 5 min walk to the casinos and 8 min to the gondola.
I absolutely recommend this place.

Thanks for your kind review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. We know our location is so great for vacationers who enjoy a short walk to avoid parking and other hassles and coming back to a place with a warm and friendly atmosphere can be a great relief. The hot tub can take care of the rest! Thanks again for taking the time to review our Inn, and we hope you come back soon!

Spent President's day week-end at the 7 Seas Inn, this hotel was absolutely great: super friendly staff, room size was perfectly adequate for us + 2 children, and within walking distance - 7/8 minutes - of the Gondola, exactly what we needed to spend a good week-end of skiing. We will definitely call again next time we ski in Heavenly!

It is so great to see all the smiling faces coming in and out of the Inn during ski season! Being within walking distance to the Gondola is just one of the many perks to staying here, and coming back to a warm and friendly hotel where you are recognized and treated like family? How could it be any better? We are so glad you stayed and hope to see you for a summer stay!

I picked this hotel for location close to the gondola. However due to high winds the gondola was closed during my stay. I recommend checking the conditions before booking if this is a key element to you. But the location was central close to restaurants, shops and casinos.
The hotel had excellent reviews on Tripadvisor and I can confirm the staff is really great. Rooms are comfortable and equipped with a fridge and microwave plus a flat screen TV. Breakfast runs until 11 am and they have waffles and nutella :)
I recommend this place for the good value for the money and the friendly staff.

Great suggestions for future guests! Thank you! Even with the Gondola closed, there are a lot of great things to do here, and I am sure the staff was able to point you in other directions. Hope you come on back though and get that skiing in! So glad you enjoyed the waffles and Nutella!

The 7 seas is one of those places that are resonablely priced, but still comfortable, actually quite comfortable. My boyfriend and I were staying in South Lake to catch a show at the Mont Bleu. We weren't gonna spend a lot of time in the room, so price was a major determinant of where we stayed. I was a bit suspicious of all the excellent reviews on booking websites in consideration of the price, especially with news reports of business owners falsifying reviews. This place however was not one of them. This is legitimately a great, clean, little inn. There are a lot of thoughtful details in the rooms. There were rags for drying dogs and/or ski equipment, power strips for chargers, extra pillows and blankets, and a little frig to keep your mixers and left over pizza cool. The biggest thing I noticed about the 7 seas was the staff. You could tell they have worked together for years, were pleasant to the guests and seemed to enjoy their jobs. It gave the place an open, friendly appeal. I would definitely stay at the 7 seas again and would recommend it to anyone as a place to stay, while you are out enjoying the amenities of Lake Tahoe.

Been returning to this little gem over the years because of the personal connection the owners make with all of their guests. They remember you and your preferences with seeming effortlessness. They truly make you feel welcome, like their special guest, giving lots of pointers for great places to eat and play in Tahoe. They create a friendly social atmosphere and so attract friendly sociable customers. I especially enjoy their outdoor heated spa in the winter. It's one of the few left at the lake. Oh, and did I mention their affordability? I say, give up the cold corporate mega hotel "Have a nice day" and come on over for a "great stay" with the folks at the 7 Seas.

Room Tip: Ask for a fireplace for the coziest experience.
