Positive Reviews


The inn's location within Lake Tahoe is described as a boon by most guests. The casinos are only five minutes away, and this is a destination that is particularly appreciated by guests. Also, the Heavenly Village and the Heavenly Gondola are just 175 yards from the hotel entrance.


A standout aspect of Bluelake Inn? It's affordability. Guests say that the inn fits well into most any vacation budget.

Kind staff

Guests indicate that the staff here are extremely pleasant and easy to get along with. They're quick to attend to any room requests, and keep a smile on their faces throughout. You should not find that the staff are in any way a detriment to the enjoyment of your stay in Lake Tahoe.

Negative Reviews

Old beds

According to guest reviews, the beds here are old and in some cases in need of replacement. They describe the beds as "lumpy" and that the springs are easy to feel in some situations, which is likely to disturb your sleep, and may also affect your lower back if you already possess a predisposition toward developing lower back pain.

Tough to adjust showers

Several guests note that it's difficult to adjust the shower temperature at Bluelake Inn. Starting off the morning right is vital for most of us, and you may find it frustrating if you're stuck with one of the showers that oscillates too greatly between hot and cold temperature extremes.


A commonly used word to describe this location is "basic." While it's certainly affordable, this affordability comes at a cost: Guests say there is little room furniture, that the bathrooms are lacking in decoration, and that the breakfast is also very standard and plain.
