My brother and I love to grab the paddle boards and work up an appetite for the west shore burger. It's the best burger on the lake. It's such a great spot on and off the lake. Friendly boating and server staff. Although the menu seems limited, you are guaranteed to like anything you order.

Several new acquaintances and I stopped here for lunch....a perfect sunny, warm day sipping cocktails (try the Homewood Meadows) and every food choice was sampled with ooh's and ahh's. A return visit is on my list!

Location? Prime. Potential? Superior. Expectations, not so much. I planned a special event here as the location is one of the best on the lake. I had to reschedule, and came here solo thinking that even by myself, it had to be good. But once in my Mountain room, I was pretty disappointed. The room also overlooks the parking lot... More

Day 1: Everything was perfect! The suite room is beautiful with magnificent view, the staffs were friendly and helpful, the food was delicious. Perfect place for a getaway, quite and peaceful. I easily and happily rate it 5 stars, but then... Day 2: A wedding took place and the hotel was closed for the event. Suddenly we were ignored and... More

I live for the afternoons and dusk views I experience time and time again on the deck after a day on the slopes or a day on the lake. Drinks are amazing, food tastey, and the views are the best at Lake Tahoe. Hidden gem on the kick back and casual west shore.

I haveonly been to the restaurant, so I cannot say anything about the inn itself. The restaurant has a stunning view, perhaps one of the best in Tahoe.The odd thin however is that already by 8 o'clock mot of the tables re empty, as people in California tend to eat very early. It is hard to fathom that people seem... More

We had so looked forward to our stay at The West Shore Inn but unfortunately our stay was beset with problems from start to finish (and beyond). Our reservation was made online through www.booking.com and specifically noted that we had reserved a lake front room named on the confirmation as the Mount Vernon suite. We imagined waking up and looking... More

The westshore is so beautiful. The light on the water is unparalled anywhere else on the lake. So, right off the bat, this hotel gets major points. Plus...it is across the street from my personal favorite ski resort, Homewood. Another crazy plus. But the actual property and food and rooms...gorgeous. Perfect place to just stop into after a day on... More

We enjoyed a two night stay at this lovely Inn on the west shore of Lake Tahoe. Thanks to mycokerewards.com for choosing my husband as the winner of a sweepstakes here. Robin and Sarah were excellent hostesses. Complimentary breakfast was delivered to our room each morning. Fireplace and view of the ski slope were romantic.

My husband and I stayed overnight here while we explored Lake Tahoe and had a great time! It was kind of a pre-anniversary treat because I'll be recovering from surgery on our real anniversary, so I wanted a really nice place. Our room was at a discounted price, so I think we may have gotten the smallest one there, but... More
