“Best stay in Tahoe yet!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

Lets start with the hotel and rooms...it's a rustic cabin decor ( which I happen to like) nothing fancy but it has everything you need. A coffee shop, casino with a few tables and slots, 2 bars and 2 restaurants. We ate at both...Timber Lodge was good but Latin Soul was great! If you stay here I recommend you give Latin Soul a try. I would go back just to have dinner there! We received a sheet of coupons because it was my husbands birthday month which included $5 towards slots machines, a free cocktail, $3 off at the coffee shop & $30 next room reservation. We won some $ during our stay which of course made it an even better experience : )
Will definitely be staying there again!!

But our room had a balcony, was large and super-comfortable. No microwave or fridge but iron and ironing board. Very comfortable bed. Thermostat defective and vent in bathroom covered with dust. To go hiking amid sugar pines, drive one mile south and turn left on Lake Parkway Loop road. Pick up a free player's card at cashiers in casino as it gives you a free breakfast.

Stayed here last weekend using a groupon, and everything was fine. You are not at the Wynn or Mirage, not even Harrah's but the place was good, rooms are older, and dated.
Everything worked fine, the staff was very helpful and friendly. We called for extra towels, and literally before I could put the phone down someone was knocking on the door with towels. Breakfast was great, the casino is small, but nice, $5.00 crap table was great, plenty of slots to play. We will definitely stay here again even without a groupon deal
Oh, and the location, down the street from the big casinos, you can walk it, maybe not in heels tho for the women, but if you like golf, go check out the Edgewood Golf course next door, awesome course, we hit balls on the driving range. $25. per hour, expensive, but worth it. The price to play there is pretty steep ($170)

Room Tip: we stayed in 172 in the Edgewood lodge, next to the pool, not too close to it though.

Stayed here for 2 nights while visiting the Tahoe area. The hotel is older but reasonably renovated. Rooms were good sized with lots of wood decor. Simple clean rooms with a good sized TV. Rooms do not have refrig or microwave. Casino on grounds. Rooms can be a bit noisy depending on your neighbors. Close to South Lake Tahoe without being immersed in the crowd. Overall a good value especially if you can find a discount. Very friendly service at the front desk. I did not try the food on site.

Room Tip: Rooms towards the back of the property are quieter.

The staff are loyal and terrific (the downstairs hallways are lined with awards they've all won, a nice tribute). The property has a swell location, too.
But it is tired and long overdue for a restoration which, at the very least, cleans decades of smoke out of the casino walls, carpets, chairs and everything else. The vibe is pretty much downtown Las Vegas circa 1970 -- hardly the huge loud casinos of current times -- and there's something to be said for that, But there's a difference between retro and just plain old.
Others noting the quality of the food at the (only) dining facility on the property are correct -- it's good food with a marvelous view.

Room Tip: True lake view rooms seem to require advance planning.

Got a Groupon and called them to requested them for non-smoking room. They were very courteous.

Checkin was a quick and the room was in a separate building which is a 2 min walk from the casino.

Clean room, good bed. A little noisy as the building is old.

Food was good at their Latin Soul restaurant.

It isn't a five star resort, but it is small, quaint, and comfortable. Only half a mile from the main casinos, it's easily within walking distance and has a very relaxed vibe. The pool and hot tub are nice, and the Timber House restaurant has fabulous food at a reasonable price! The staff is really friendly and nice (except for one really surly bartender that we've deemed "Mr. Grumpy Pants"). The decor is very rustic and circa 1970, but in my humble opinion, just adds to the cabin-like feel. Beds are very comfortable, showers work well and no issues with hot water. If you are looking for lake views, high-end amenities, room service, and fancy casinos, Lakeside Inn is not for you! If you are looking for a comfortable bed, great food and reasonable price, then this is a great place to stay!

Room Tip: one of the buildings, the Glenbrook, was recently upgraded. You can also request one that is poolsid...
