7 Seas Inn at Tahoe
Ranked #2 of 65 Hotels in South Lake Tahoe
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 March 2014

When the reservation was made I asked for a ground level unit as stairs are very difficult to navigate. Tim assured us that we would have a ground level unit, king size bed with a fireplace. True to his word that is exactly what we got. Each unit is different in it's decor. The cleanliness of the unit is about average for a hotel of this age. The hotel accepts pets and we did not notice and lingering effects of a pet being in the room we stayed in. The amenities are different. In the room were packets of shaving cream, toothpaste, lotions, soaps, etc. There was a shower only no tub in our unit do not know if other units have tubs. We spent two nights March 13 &14. Each morning we went to the free breakfast and found about what would be expected; cereal, bagels, bread, waffles, juices, etc. But what was different about breakfast was the owner was there in the morning and is a wealth of knowledge about the area. If you want a 4 Seasons type of stay this is not for you but if you want good value for your money then 7 Seas is a terrific place to stay. Close to the casinos, access to Heavenly ski area, golf all within 5-10 minute walking distance. Should we return to South Lake Tahoe there would be no hesitation to stay at 7 Seas. I did have one area that could have made the stay better - it would be helpful if there would be a guide to the TV channels.

Thanks for your review. We take a lot of pride in our customer service and strive to insure that our guests with any special needs or requests get exactly what they are expecting when they walk in the door… just as it should be everywhere? Right? Being a family run and owned business gives us the chance to really get to know our guests and being lifelong residents here, we know this place like the back of our hand. Passing along all that valuable knowledge is what we enjoy the most, and seeing smiling and sometimes exhausted faces coming back in at the end of the day is our reward. Thank you for your comment about the channel guide. We will definitely address that issue. Hope to see you back this summer!

The folks at the front desk and the man at the bar were so nice and helpful, and very welcoming. It was in a great location, and i would enjoy returning for another visit. They have a nice selection of beers, wines and drinks at the bar.

Thanks so much for taking the time to review our Inn. Not many people mention our bar, and it’s a great place to unwind and share stories with other guests in the evening. Being within walking distance of the Casino and other venues means an after dinner drink or two is no problem and won’t put a damper on your night of activities! Can’t wait to see you here again soon!

From the outside the Seven Seas looks like 80% of the existing drury South Lake motels. The minute you walk into the office your opinion changes. The man at the front desk was very friendly. He was helping the another guest ,asked if I had a reservation and without delay gave me a key without registering-we could settle up later. The rooms will not remind you of a stay at the Hilton but they were clean, they had a fridge, microwave, desk, fast free wifi, and a flat screen with HDTV . The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet. The staff and their attention to service makes this place a very comfortable and welcoming place to stay.

Room Tip: Ask for non-smoking and that is what you will get.

Thank you so much for your kind review. All of our rooms are non-smoking, and we take care to make sure the rooms are fresh and clean for each and every guest. We know we aren’t the Hilton, but maybe that is why people like it here. We recognize you at breakfast, we take the time to give you tourist information that you can’t read about in a pamphlet and always strive to make you a repeat customer. South Lake Tahoe is a four-season area, and it’s worth coming back over and over again. Please come see us again!

The people at the 7 Seas Inn are wonderful folks who made us feel right at home. We had a great time on a 3 day mini ski vacation. The rooms are not generic cookie cutter rooms, they have a bit of character to them and you can tell that everything is well cared for. All the rooms have a microwave and fridge which really came in handy with having some food and snacks ready for our toddler. For the parents, the hot tub was ridiculously wonderful after a hard day of skiing.
The location can't be beat, the street the Inn is located on is quiet, yet only a five to ten minute walk to the Heavenly gondola and Heavenly Village, as well as the casinos on the Nevada side if you like. We'll be back (and tell our friends to do so too).

Thank you so much! We appreciate word-of-mouth referrals and welcome families. We have a beautiful garden area that is so nice in the Spring, Summer and Fall and perfect for parents with small kids to relax after a long day of sightseeing. Our family friendly environment and homey style as well as our price point make us a great choice for a family vacation spot.

Overall, this place was a great place to stay. It looks a bit dreary from the outside, and the rooms area bit cramped and need some TLC. The bed was so squeaky it woke us up at night. All that said, the owner does some of the cleaning herself, and her & the staff are very friendly and down to earth. The service, the fireplace in the room & the cost make it one of the best places in Tahoe!

Thank you so much for your comments. I hope you mentioned the squeaky bed while you were here. We’ll get right up there and oil and tighten that baby up! :-) Everyone loves the fireplace in the room. Only 5 rooms have fireplaces and they sell-out quickly so book early. We are glad you enjoyed your stay overall, and if there is anything we can do to make your stay better while you are here, please let us know.

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.
