Gambling trip for Mom - make it acceptable for me. Harrah's Stateside was a good find. Across the street from beautiful Lake Tahoe (great for that afternoon escape from the casino or even a look out the window). Walking distance to fun shops. Indoor food was fine (altho the 18th floor buffet is pricey unless you have a huge appetite). We had a room with a view of the lake and the mountains. LOVED the 2 bathrooms per room - great for 3 gals!
