“Fun and Comfortable Place to Stay in Tahoe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Harrah's features large comfortable rooms with sitting area, two bathrooms, and floor to ceiling views. Definitely a cut above the sister property, Harvey's, the hotel still offers great weekday rates, and discounts and comps with the players card (Total Rewards). The casino is great fun, staff much friendlier than Vegas. There's a good buffet with incredible views on the top floor. My only nitpick is the rooms and common areas starting to be in a need of a little touch-up; beds and pillows a little soft. Still, it's my place to stay in beautiful Tahoe.

Room Tip: Best views on the south side

Harrah's Lake Tahoe was once the legend on Tahoe's South Shore. It still has some great amenities. Quality entertainment in the showroom, fun lounge acts like Arty. I have to say though that when I saw the 4 diamond award on the wall in the lobby, I just kinda shook my head. Back in the day, 4 stars for Harrahs would have been a step down. Today, the hotel is losing it's luster and is really a 3 star hotel.

You can see what made the hotel great once. There are touches of the modern mountain elegance still visible. There used to be these great carved wood panels in the elevators. Those have now been replaced with cheap looking laminate and mirrors. While Friday's Station retains it's elegance and unbelievably gorgeous views, the buffet is now reminiscent of the Hometown Buffet.

The rooms are sadly not up to 4 star standards. The his and hers bathrooms are still there. The bed is fine, but nothing special. The headboard console is straight out of the 70's. There's a coffee maker in the room, but the coffee itself is a mini-bar item. The TV is an outdated picture the tv. The furnishings feel like a Hilton Garden Inn. The shower has a poorly designed and cheap looking dispenser system for the shampoo and soap. I guess this beast of a dispenser might have been considered a better looking option than the cheap soaps offered in the bath.

Bottom line, this hotel deserves to be better, but it's clear that there has not been the investment to keep it up to date and cheap shortcuts that leave the experience less than the hotel's long earned reputation.

Review of the room: Two queen executive.

Room was fabulous and clean. Really like the fact that the room had two bathrooms. One with a standin shower and the other with a tub/shower. We've stayed at Harveys and even though the room at Harveys we stayed at was remodeled, Harrahs is the place to stay. From some of the conversations I've had with the dealers at both casino/hotels, a lot more work had been done with Harrahs because that is where they bring the "whales".

You can sometimes find some great deals. I highly recommend paying the extra few bucks and staying here rather than the motels. And yes, I've stayed at the motels on the strip. Have posted reviews on them as well.

Harrah's Lake Tahoe Hotel and Casino is a nice place to be if you plan to explore the South Lake Tahoe area. It is geographically located on the California and Nevada stateline, in fact just go outside the hotel door and you'll see the marker separating the two states. The hotel room and the bathrooms where we stayed was spacious with extra pull-out bed for your guest. If your plan for the Winter is to ski, the hotel is located near the ski resorts. And if your plan is to go there during the Summer time, Lake Tahoe is a nice place where you can rent a canoe or small boats to explore the Lake Tahoe from the water side. All attractions are in close proximity to Harrah's Hotel and Casino!

Harrahs is a great place to stay in Lake Tahoe. We were greeted by friendly staff that helped us check into our room on the 13th floor (Yes! They have a 13th floor). The Executive Room had plenty of space with modern decor (tv could use updating) and the double bathroom was a welcomed bonus. The bed was comfortable and allowed us to hibernate after gambling and dancing to the tunes of DJ Arty the Party in the casino. We had such a great time, that we plan to visit again in a few months.

Stayed a Sunday and Monday in late October. The hotel is just off the lake and is the largest casino hotel in Stateline. We had a room on the 5th floor that was large, clean, and comfortable, but dated. The room had two bathrooms that was somewhat over kill. One bath had walk in shower. We had a Lake View room but the 5th floor is too low to get much lake view, I suggest 7 th floor or higher.

Overall I liked the hotel. Check-in and check-out were easy, fast, and accurate. The hotel was comfortable, in the middlemof everytjing in Stateline and had plentiful Blackjack tables with fair rules. I stayed using deeply discounted player's club rates so I can't speak to their rates.

We ate at the top floor steak house (Friday Station) and except for the view it was very ordinary and quite expensive.

Room Tip: Select a high floor to get a good view of the lake.
