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

The lodge was just perfect for a 2 night getaway. My room was very clean and comfortable. The guest service staff were very knowledgeable about things to do in the area including a dynamite Bluegrass Festival, hiking trails, local ski conditions, etc. The complimentary breakfast was excellent in both quantity of items provided and quality. Very attentive staff! I did... More

We didn't stay at the Lodge, but we had dinner here. Wonderful food, superb service, top ranked bar with premium tequila. Steak cooked perfectly to my specs, and the supporting portions on the plate were equally as good. Hats off to Nicky and JP, thanks for the service.

I stayed here in December of 2013. It was very cold, and there was little snow at the time. The lodge was busy with visitors over the Christmas Holiday. The room was spacious and the fireplace very nice. We visited again in April of 2014 just to dine. The restaurant, and the Bar and Grill were good, but I wouldn't... More

The location of the Sunnyside was perfect. We stayed in the suit, room 31! The food at the lodge was good. The staff was friendly and helpful. The view from our room was SPECTACULAR!!! It was bright and sunny when we arrived. We woke up to 14 inches of snow!!! It was beautiful. I would stay there again for sure!!
