A great place go stay.

Check-in was easy. Staff very nice. Room was good. To me the best part is how close it is to everything I wanted to do. I walked to the beach, the casinos, to the movies, the supermarket, skiing, and coldstones!! VERY convenient!

wish they had old manager

Stayed here many time for many years. Same hotel this time new manager. Did not meet them., but from year past manager would give deals to fill hotel. There are many hotels to choose from in area all are ok, so price and upgrades are what get the business. This time no deals will look else where next time. Wish Don was still manager.

Great value!

The hotel was very clean and quiet, walking distance from the lake, with a private beach, and extremely affordable for being in South Lake Tahoe. My room also had a fridge and a microwave.

Next to the hotel's private beach there is a beach-cafe that offers good lunch and dinner food at a very affordable price. Go for dinner at sunset, and you will enjoy a spectacular view of the sun setting behind the mountains and the lake.

Clean Motel. Good Location.

This was the second time we choose the same motel. The motel is very clean and its location is very close to the private access beach. The first time we were there, the parking at the beach was free but this time it's $1.00 for every 1/2 hour. So it's better to leave your car parked at the motel. The breakfast is donuts and one kind of oatmeal. They however have Starbucks coffee, milk and OJ. On Monday morning around 8:00 AM, the city decided to start a construction on a road right in front of the motel, it was too noisy to sleep in. That of course was not the motel's fault. Overall, it was a good experience.

serves it's purpose well

We went to Adventure Mountain about 12 miles away and spent all day sledding. Exhausted this was perfect to kick your shoes off. This inn is perfect for a low key overnight stay. Has excellent weekend rates. I saw many of the other places that I researched literally on the same small block that looked of the same quality but charged about 100 more a night!!!! Pros: nice staff literally walk across the street to Heavenly and Marriot ski resorts and Harveys and Harras Casinos. Continental breakfast which was donuts and coffee ( gone in the first 4 minutes.) in room microwave and mini refrigerator and coffee. CONS: small rooms, basic old beds and comforters without covers. For $60 on Saturday and a one night stay its perfect.

great location but the beds were like granite!

The location couldn't be better. It's literally across the street from Heavenly Village and walking distance to most of South Lake Tahoe. The room had a big fridge, a microwave, coffee maker and a hair dryer. Really liked all the amenities. The free continental breakfast was just watered down OJ and a sad assortment of donuts. The worst feature were the beds. HARD AS ROCKS! I don't know if it was just our room or what but it was awful. I wouldn't stay there again. By the time we left we were all a cranky mess from lack of sleep!

Heavenly Ski Resort Access

Blue Lake Inn is great lodging for skiing. Amenities are limited but this property is excellent for a short ski trip. Clean and conveniently located within walking distance to the Heavenly lifts and local restaurants. Have stayed here 5 times over the years.
