    Older establishment but clean rooms, good bed and very helpful staff.

    Fair 4.0
    Very disappointing.
    This motel was very disappointing. The pictures on hotels.com were very misleading. The finish on the tub was cracking and peeling. Areas on the counters on the sink and around the facet had chipped peeled off. There was no stopper in the sink drain. There were spots on the ceiling over the bed. I hope it wasn’t anything growing, like mold. There were absolutely no amenities to speak of. The free WiFi disconnected every morning, and every time I re-entered the room I had to log back in. The breakfast was hardly breakfast-merely a snack. I could classify this hotel as merely a place to sleep. It didn’t look like it had been updated in decades. I guess you get what you pay for.

    We enjoyed our three night stay at the Bluelake Inn. It is conveniently located a couple of blocks between the lake and the casinos. Our room was very clean and spacious, and the staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was adequate. We would certainly stay there again.

    Recommend for your stay in South Lake Tahoe
    If you're visiting South Lake Tahoe, Bluelake Inn at Tahoe is a great choice for your lodging. The hotel is not glamorous by any means, but it hits the 3 C's - clean, comfortable, close to attractions. The front desk was polite and efficient, breakfast was basic but was all we needed, and rooms were filled with all your basic necessities. The room itself could use some minor upgrades, but overall, we were very happy with our stay and would definitely return. Pool was closed in October, but the hot tub was available :)

    Not the newest; but great customer service.
    We were in town for a wedding. Due to flight delays were were late arriving. Front desk staff friends and accommodating. We had problems with a doer lock; fixed immediately. We inquired about borrowing a chair for our wedding for the mother of the bride and this request was accommodated as well. We were even directed to some awesome Mexican food close enough to walk!
