“Great stay next to the Lake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

We stayed in this lodge in mid June and found the stay very pleasant and comfortable. The lakefront room was definitely worth the money, with a great view of the sunset over the lake. The room itself was nothing extra-ordinary but adequate. It would be great if breakfast was included in the price.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Stayed one night at Tahoe Lakeshore Lodge and Spa. The room we were first offered was at the back facing the road and smelled of cigarette smoke, the second room offered which was next door was no better. We refused both rooms and insisted on a room facing the water as that was what we had booked - we eventually got our way! Having said that the room, whilst clean, was dated and in desperate need of an upgrade especially the bathroom. This was one of the more expensive accommodations on our two week holiday in California and was the worst. Cannot recommend it and would definitely not stay here again.

The property is average - on the older side, not updated, and very very basic. The rooms are also very basic - no refrigerators in case you're thinking of bringing some food. The rooms are spacious though, and we got a room on the 1st floor, right in front of the beach. They do have direct beach access which is a big plus. The hot tub near the pool is also a big plus!

The beach is very quite and private. No restaurants on the beach near this hotel. There is a water sports company a few meters away, so you're not completely stranded. If you're looking for a busier beach, go to Camp Richardson (Beacon Bar).

This hotel is about 1.6 miles from the stateline/city center. So location wise, its decent and you can get around anywhere.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room on the 1st floor with beach access.

Our family stayed here for the first time and we loved it! We usually stay in the casinos but our grandkids were with us so we decided to find a place on the lake.

Every room has a beautiful ocean view, the staff were all friendly and helpful.

You can walk to the pier to rent watercraft, walk a block to a Safeway, and there is a CVS in the same parking lot.

We chose a room with a full kitchen. We only used a few of the dishes, the microwave and the refrigerator, but is was great to have!

The lake view was great and well worth the price. The fireplace and snowy view gave the place a great romantic atmosphere. The location was convenient and easy to find. The staff was very friendly and helpful with places to attend in the area.

Room Tip: Lake view is well worth the price

4 night stay here and enjoyed returning to our room every night. There is a little gas flame fire for the evenings which can be quite cold and each room has a balcony. No fridge in the room but the view from the sliding doors makes everything else seem ok. It is decorated in a kind of rustic style and is quite comfortable. The bathroom is small and not terribly nice and the sink is separate in the room. It was good not to be woken early by the housekeeping staff as happens in many other hotels! The pool is warm and there is a hot tub by the pool overlooking the beach. It can be cool by the lake and quite a few people were sitting by the pool fully clothed. The pool can be quite busy at certain times of the day and most rooms overlook the pool. The lake itself is freezing and not many people ventured in. There is a good selection of places to eat nearby and the location is very central and convenient for most things in south Lake Tahoe, including the gondola. Staff were very helpful with check in and suggestions for good places to eat etc. it is not cheap, but if you want a great view of the lake, this is the place to stay. If you aren't too bothered, there are lots of hotels and motels along the lake but they won't necessarily give you a view of the lake from your room.

What an awesome stay I had at Tahoe Lakeshore Lodge!!! I live only 1 hour from Tahoe and lived there from 2007-2011 and in all my experiences in the past, I never new of Tahoe Lakeshore Lodge until just this last weekend?? WOW what a great Birthday treat, sits right on the beach with views of the lake from every window!! The Sunset was the best I had ever expirenced without ever having to go anywhere. And what a lot of people would not know is how perfect the location in town is if you haven't lived there. On Bikes you can run down to Stateline for breakfast or out to Camp Richardson on the bike trail for afternoon Rum Runners and music. I can't wait to share my experience with everyone I know and know it will always be where I will want to stay, Oh and the best part I almost forgot, was how wonderful the staff was and how happy and grateful they were at all times....

Room Tip: All rooms appeared to be great. I needed a fridge so I was put in a beautiful 1 bedroom condo with i...
