We stayed in room 39, located at the end of the hall, with a view of the lake & a stone fireplace. The room was decorated nicely, felt big & was very clean. We loved the little deck - it was great for relaxing & looking at the lake. The hotel made us feel special by sending a bottle of... More

my boyfriend and I went there for the weekend and the weather was gorgeous, until it snowed. lol rooms were a little outdated but very clean and that is all I really care about. We had a view of the water. I didnt feel like going out and the staff was nice enough to bring my drinks to me. That... More

My wife and I stay at Sunnyside when traveling to Lake Tahoe. The lodge is located on the west shore about four miles south of Tahoe City. The lodge has that rustic vibe and best of all it is located right on the water. I recommend staying in a room on the second floor overlooking the lake. There is a... More

I've been going to sunnyside for over a decade and its consistently great. We used to live nearby but now we visit once a year. If you're looking for a nice dinner out then this is a must do. Ask to sit outside and watch the boats go by! They have a good wine list if you're a wine drinker.

The Sunnyside is located just south of downtown Tahoe City and it is on the lake. The views are amazing and staff are super nice and helpful. Despite being an older Tahoe lodge it is updated where needed and exceptionally clean. I will definitely be back.

Best place for a romantic get away. The only place actually. This is a spot that goes way back in Tahoe and has sustained itself against all the pop up lodging and restaurant newbies. It's spectacular in views and it's really hard to leave!!

What could be better than a romantic cabin-style room with a deck over looking Lake Tahoe and a flickering fireplace? Nothing! We will return again and again! Sunnyside is the place to stay any time of year. It is conveniently located near ski resorts, and Tahoe City. The restaurant is fabulous -- order any appetizer with a beer apres ski,... More

We LOVE to stay in places where we do to have to drive after drinking. This fits the bill!! We have eaten here many times, but never stayed there before this past weekend. A friend was staying there with her dog and told us about it. Close to Tahoe City and fairly close to SQUAW (and the Winter Wonder-grass Festival!)... More
