Inn by the Lake has been recently refurbished and looks like a new hotel. Everything was pleasant. The front desk clerks checking in were very efficient and welcoming. When we called for our reservation we were told the only king room available was a handicap accessible room. A few days before our trip we got a call saying our room... More

Great spacious rooms with excellent service. Very comfortable! I love the way the bathroom is separated from the main room. I also like the space for clothing and suitcase close to bathroom and away from main room. Having s second sink is great!

Vacationed here at beginning of Sept. 2016, and enjoyed our time here. Right on Lake Tahoe Blvd and close to everything, especially great dining places next door and out the back of the property. Directly across from the lake with beachfront access. My only 'complaint' is that there were tons of people there because it was the Labor Day weekend... More

We stayed at the Inn by the Lake a couple of years ago when attending a wedding in Lake Tahoe. Our room overlooked the lake and we woke to an amazing sunrise. We hoped to stay there again last month (another wedding!) but they were closed due to renovations. We'll hopefully stay there again on our next visit! AND, there... More

Stayed here many years ago on a romantic weekend so I felt blessed to return on a business trip. Was disappointed to say the least.
