Positive Reviews

Great location

The location is the one aspect that has pleased virtually every previous guest at the Blue Jay Lodge. Walking distance from a variety of shops, restaurants, attractions, beaches - including the hotel's private beach - and casinos, the hotel is situated in a great location of South Lake Tahoe. Furthermore, both the Van Sickle Bi-State Park and Heavenly Village are within ten minutes from the hotel on foot.

Clean and spacious rooms

A number of previous guests have stated that the rooms at the hotel are both clean and spacious. The good-sized nature of the rooms extends to the private bathrooms, which have also been described as being capacious.

Value for money

While the Blue Jay Lodge is basic in what it offers to guests, the majority felt that their stay was value for money. The location, cleanliness, customer service and private beach mixed with the inexpensive price of staying was a winning combination for most..

Negative Reviews

Run-down rooms

As well as being labeled dated, the rooms at the Blue Jay Lodge have been criticized by past visitors for their worn-down state. This included certain amenities not working properly, the décor deteriorating and furnishings showing noticeable wear and tear.

Substandard breakfast

Although the hotel provides a buffet breakfast each morning, a number of guests felt the offering was insufficient. Complaints mainly stem from the lack of options provided, with only a simple continental selection to choose from.

Problems with soundproofing

Some visitors to the Blue Jay Lodge have criticized the soundproofing of the rooms at the hotel. While the accommodation is in a reportedly quiet area, noise from other guests staying at the hotel can supposedly filter through into rooms and be disruptive.
