We decided on an impromptu trip for the night in Tahoe after Wine Tasting in Camino. We had our dog, so researched Pet Friendly and found Inn By The Lake. I have stayed here years ago and the rooms were nice then. It is an older place, but they do keep it up well. We had a King Jr Suite...

Nothing spectacular. Good hotel. Kinda in the middle of stateline and actual SLT so walking seems kinda a pain. I thought they had redone the pool building entirely, but it was just a new facade. The rooms look bad, the best was uncomfortable, the wifi was inconvenient, the outlets only half worked.

Have to say that the room I was in had a bed that would sink down. This made is difficult to sleep. Also the pool is open until late so the noise was also a problem. If it would of been a pleasure trip I might of been somewhat ok but I was there for a class all week.

After being upgraded for free to the king room, our view of the sunset over Tahoe from the balcony was beautiful. Their heated pool and hot tub were pleasant to enjoy and are open all year long. Staff very courteous and had awesome suggestions for what to do in the area. Wonderful stay.

Great value ! Breakfast next door, dinner across from the bowling alley. Safeway down the street, refrigerator worked and did not hum through the night! Only complaint was the bed was too soft. But everything else about the Inn is excellent.
