This is not upscale or newly renovated. What it is, hesitate to tell the public, but I must after all. Blue Lake Inn IS quiet, clean, friendly, very reasonable $$ and best of all....wait for it... You can walk to the gondola at Heavenly Valley Ski Resort in about 5 minutes. You are near to shopping, casinos, etc. Great value!...

You can't beat the location of this hotel. It's perfect for skiers and snowboarders as it's just a block away from the heavenly ski resort gondola. It was such a treat to come back to a good soak in the hot tub after a long day on the slopes. Plenty of room and very clean, quiet.

Great hotel to crash at after a hard day of skiing. The room and bathroom were very clean. Decor is a little dated but we barely noticed as we were exhausted. Wish there was a hot tub but it was under 5-6' of snow.

My husband and I stayed here and it was perfect for our needs. We wanted an affordable place with beach access and walkable to downtown. It's a no frills, clean, affordable spot. We loved the beach access and parking. Short easy walk to South Lake Tahoe downtown/casino area. We would stay again!

The room was clean, but in need of some repairs and updates. Toilet ran. Television was ancient. Not a flat screen. Could not even view HD format. Thankfully we had a tablet to use. Wi Fi worked very well. Did not pay for advanced speeds that were offered. Hotel was full, and speed was still good enough to watch football....

South Lake Tahoe is a bit daunting for choosing accommodation.There is so much available but not easy to make a decision. The price also varies enormously depending on the time of the week. The Bluelake Inn looked nice and it turned out to be a great spot and a nice hotel.Very handy to everything. Nice breakfast as well. The location...

This is a very old and basic motel with a great location. Our room was clean enough, comfortable, and mostly quiet. The staff is very friendly. The breakfast is served from 8-10 AM and consists of coffee, apples, bananas, milk, and two types of cereal. The Internet worked pretty good.

Property and rooms clean, friendly staff. Easy walk to the main drag, Tahoe Blvd, casinos, etc. Property has pet friendly rooms and continental breakfast at office. Good security as we had two kayaks on my truck that were not bothered. Was nice having spa in room.

We got a mid week rate at under 70.00 a night. They had no problem with accommodating our pups, and the front desk person told us where the dog friendly beach is. The room isn't the most plush, but the beds are really comfortable, the room and bathroom are spotless. The pool and hot tub were wonderful to relax in,...

We were ok with the room, bed was comfortable and clean, bathroom walls missing texture, painted by amateur. We were prepared to rate 2-3 until The desk staff experience next morning- 2 gals sitting behind desk gave us a bit of a " # %! off" with a smile. The breakfast room was awful and unstocked. If you want to...
