“Nice stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

The Tahoe Lakeshore Lodge & Spa was a nice stay and a good location. They are right on the beach and have a wonderful view from the lake facing side. The rooms were clean and the bed was comfortable. There was a gas fire place / stove in the room and a small kitchenette. My interaction with the staff was minimal but they seemed to be helpful and pleasant to deal with. The rooms look to be recently renovated but the outside looked to need a little work. It is an older lodge and it does show in the style and setup. The tub is small but the shower worked well. The room had a fan in the closet we found the last day but no air conditioning. Opening the window was fine for the most part but we had a corner room and was able to get air from different directions as needed but opening a window also meant you hear all the outside noise. The noise was not bad for the most part but they were working on some construction right next to our room so we got to hear that starting at about 8AM. Did not use the spa or pool but did enjoy the view and beach. Over all a nice stay though except for the construction noise.

Room Tip: View rooms are great for the lake.

Every year we come up to see the fireworks on the 4th. This is the best place to see the fireworks from your own balcony. The beds are only queen size and they are higher than most beds but they are comfy once you get in. It is an older property but everything works. Pool was a good temperature as well as the spa. Walls are thin and floors squeak. No tub for me but the showers are better than your average hotel. The staff is friendly and very helpful.

Room Tip: Get a room on the third floor for best view

Laskeshore Lodge and Spa is fantastic! We came to Tahoe for a wedding and the bride and groom arranged for a 2 night stay for us. Since it was the 4th of July, we were unable to extend our time over the 4th - HOWEVER ... after the weekend we were able to come back to Lakeshore Inn to complete our vacation. It's set back from the noisy road. Each room has fabulous lake front views. Rooms are spacious. Super comfortable. "Rustic" decor that fits the mountain surroundings beautifully. Pool. Spa. Grassy area with a fire pit and a large expanse of sandy beach. The staff were friendly, caring and helpful. It's close to restaurants, shopping, the mountains but once in your room you'll feel that you're tucked away in some quiet location. Would we come back? ABSOLUTELY!!!! We highly recommend it.

Room Tip: If you don't want to hear people in the pool ... ask for an end room away from the pool/spa area

It's on the lake. Other than that it doesn't stand out in any way. Our room was small and dark, and the view was of just part of the lake, as part of the building blocks the rest of it. The bed was comfortable and the plumbing worked, but nothing about the place made me want to spend any time there except to sleep. For that there are much less expensive places right across the street.

Amazing location, the views are outstanding - whether on the balcony of our condo or walking the few feet it took to get to the water, absolutely breathtaking. Clean, pleasant staff, maintenance repaired a torn screen within minutes of our call (and very politely and professionally), when we asked for an additional fan it was delivered to our room again within minutes. Such a responsive team! The condo was adorable, well maintained, decorated super cute and was really clean. But the number one thing was the quiet. From the pool to the beach to the room it was sooooooo quiet and relaxing. The private beach is tops. Jacuzzi so relaxing. And we were there right during the 4th of July prime time period (checked in July 6th, out July 8th) but it wasn't crowded and the kids were well behaved (and so were the adults haha). The resort was "sold out" but seriously we felt like we were in our own little oasis. Absolutely will be back here SOON!!!

Room Tip: I'm not sure there would be a room that wouldn't be good here :)

Great view and private access to beach - even for July 4th fireworks. Great location - next to CVS, Heidi's (breakfast place) and watersports area. You can experience Lake Tahoe by just staying here. Worth the price - loved it!

Room Tip: All rooms are lakeview!

We arrived to find a depressing parking lot behind a CVS with some shady charachters on the lot. We checked in and from the resort map it looked like our room faced a bbq pit. Well, all of that was cleared up when we saw the room.
Pros; The condo units are individually owned, ours (#124) was beautiful. Plenty of room, a nice kitchen, walk right out to the water, sunny all day. The bed was very comfortable. The location at South Tahoe is perfect for exploring the whole lake. Every area is different, don't miss trip around the lake to see the views, paddle the waters and hike the trails. Walk down the beach to dining and water craft rentals. Staff is very nice.
Cons; Cabinets are old and need updating. Lake water here is not as crystal clear as other areas of the lake.

Room Tip: We loved 124. It is called Lakeview, but right on the beach
