I have two basic expectations for a hotel: Clean. Quiet. Blue Lake came in at 50%. My wife called ahead of our booking and asked if they had a especially quiet room as I am a light sleeper. They said they do...no problem. The room was clean and certainly no frills. For example, their bolster bed pillows (to prop-up for...

Centrally located within walking distance to casinos, restaurants, shopping mail, movies and grocery store. We found the staff to be friendly and accommodating to all our needs. The rooms were clean with free wi-fi, refrigerator, coffeemaker & condiments, sitting area with table & chairs The room had new beds which was great to come back to after a day of...

We were in town for a wedding. It was my daughter and I. We were checked into an oversized room. It was on the back side of the complex. The room was large and on the ground floor. The thing that made me uncomfortable, was there were two doors to this room and a large window. One door led to...

Great location! Nice continental breakfast. Could hear water running through the pipes and guests upstairs, but was able to sleep soundly. Mattress firm and comfortable. Includes access to Lakeside Beach, which is within walking distance~perfect for a wedding we attended and the fireworks for Labor Day. Great Taqueria across the street-we enjoyed their delicious tortas by the pool. We would...

After reading some good reviews of this place, we decided to stay one night on the way from Yosemite National Park to Crater Lake National Park, even though we were little apprehensive about the below $100 per night price. Office clerk was very nice. Our room appeared clean but after coming back from dinner, we realized several dead ants on...

After showing up at a different hotel that did not meet our needs, we were scrambling to find a place that had enough beds to accommodate us. My husband and I were travelling with 2 adult children and a teenager. We were very fortunate to come across this place. I must say that the service was incredible!! Blanca at the...

Booked this last minute. Not up to the standard that we had experienced. You get what you pay for. King room is spacious, room was clean. Bathroom needs updating as the shower area is a little small. Vanity area is large. Thin walls could hear people showering next door as well as bumps on walls. Close to main area for...

This little hotel salvaged our vacation. After traveling from Oregon and admittedly being unaware of the tourist craziness that South Tahoe brings, we were feeling a little defeated. We stayed in a basic king room, and it was perfect. Centrally located to everything, including a short walk to the beach. Although it advertises a 'private' beach for hotel guests, note...

Nice, clean room. TV was small, but we hardly even used in our two-day stay. Bathroom looks recent. Walked everyplace from Inn. Close to shopping, gondolas, and beach. Pool looked nice, but didn't get a chance to use that either. Pleasant, polite staff made us feel welcome and appreciated.

We booked two adjoining rooms at Bluelake for the 4th of July weekend. We paid a premium rate with two night stay minimum. The rooms were large and clean with a comfortable bed. The bathroom is old style with the sink area is outside the bath and toilet area. We received passes to the Lakeside beach area which was right...
