We had a great day skiing across the Street at Homewood and a wonderful time with friends at the end of the day for Apre Ski at the West Shore Cafe. Very welcoming to skiers with special Happy Hour in the Bar. You can just walk across the Street from the Ski Lift. Beautiful architecture and rustic upscale interior design.... More

We had an unforgettable stay at the West Shore Inn this past weekend. My husband summarized it best as we were leaving when he said our weekend at the Inn was “magical.” We stayed in the Marlette Peak Suite. What a special experience! The rooms face directly onto the pier and the lake. It is so relaxing to watch the... More

My wife and I came for a wedding that was actually at West Shore Inn and Cafe. We stayed in the Mckinney Suite. We were surprised how big the suite is. We could of had several people stay with us. Everyone there was quite hospitable and friendly. We had lunch there on our first day and the food was very... More

We spent a weekend at West Shore Cafe and Inn on our 3+ week driving vacation through the West. At this point we were starting North toward home. We arrived in lovely sunshine but it did change and was a lot cooler but still sunny the entire time. We were in the "economy" mode so booked a room with a... More

We spent an overnight at West Shore Cafe and Inn--what luxury! What fun! Our Sugar Pine Point Suite overlooked the lakefront deck scene with people coming and going by boat, and enjoying live music. The suite was opulent (as it should be given the cost). The check-in and check-out process was very smooth and all the hotel staff were super... More

We just returned from a 3 night stay in the Mount Watson Suite. This room (as well as the Marlette suite) have absolutely spectacular in-room views of Lake Tahoe. We spent as much time as we could lounging in front of our large window, drinking wine and gazing out at the waters of Lake Tahoe. The views of the room... More

Just spent 3 nights in this little jewel directly on Lake Tahoe across the street from the Homewood Ski Resort. I made the reservation before they decided to close for 2 weeks to get ready for the busy summer season, so we had the place to ourselves. I appreciated that they honored the reservation even though they were technically closed.... More

Having read reviews of West Shore on Trip Advisor, we were aware that there were fairly new owners. Perhaps that explains the inconsistency of service. However, we cannot praise the actual accommodation highly enough. We had the McKinney Bay Suite...trust me the pictures do not do it justice....roomy, beautifully appointed, 2 huge bathrooms, large flat screen TVs with satellite (pet... More

While I definitely loved the food here, I think it's the atmosphere and the amazing outside seating that makes this place a winner! Definitely a great place to post up in the summer sunshine. I actually thought our starters were the best part -- the asparagus spears and corn & crab fritters were both total winners! The service wasn't the... More
