“Relaxing spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

We had Room 32 on the lakefront with a private balcony. Large, comfortable, tastefully decorated--and what a view! We ate dinner at an outside table and lingered with wine to watch the sunset. Our room was on the corner, above the restaurant, but not above the outdoor bar area. Those rooms might be noisy, but ours wasn't. They have a small, common area upstairs where a hearty continental breakfast is served. The Lodge is a welcome respite from the crazy traffic around the lake.

Room Tip: Room 32: lakefront, private balcony, quiet

This is a very fun place for all ages, even children can find something on the menu,like the fried zucchini, they are known for. Sometimes it gets a little to crowded, but you know that before you go, so just go with the flow, it is well worth it. The view alone is what makes it so special, but the drinks add to the ambiance of the place,

Room Tip: we have not stayed in the hotel, but have had friends that did , and they enjoyed it, a bit pricey...

My husband and I have been coming here for 25 years and today we decided was the perfect day for a two hour drive to have lunch once again. It's a beautiful sunny day and the scenery is incredible. Arriving we found the bar area and restaurant packed, but it didn't take long for an outside table to open up for us. They've extended the outside dining area since last we've been here and what a great idea that was. It added so much more seating to the area. We started off with a shrimp martini (shrimp cocktail) that was excellent. Lots of small shrimp in a tasty salsa sauce. For my lunch entree I chose the fish taco's, choice of grilled, cajun, or beer battered, and I chose grilled. There were two large taco's with a generous piece of Mahi Mahi, a coleslaw with an amazing sauce, and I added hot sauce to give it a kick. They were delicious!!! My husband ordered the Chicken Sandwich, which was huge, and it came with french fries. He was also very happy with his meal. The prices are a little on the high side, but definitely worth every penny when considering the view and the quality of the food. Our server was very attentive, but never bothersome. When we needed something she was there. Anyway, it was the perfect day and I can attribute it to our day at Sunnyside. Thank you, we'll be back soon.

Dinner was fabulous and the service was excellent. The view from the deck at Sunnyside is just wonderful. A very relaxing evening as they did not rush even though the restaurant was totally booked. The only downside is the parking as you may have to park down the road.

The restaurant is right on beautiful Lake Tahoe. Went for sunset dinner. I ordered the pork chop and was told the chef recommends "medium". I ordered it med well. It looked cooked on arrival, but was 50% raw when I cut into it. The coffee was a drip machine. It tasted terrible. We were told their espresso machine has been out for repair. Don't order coffee!!! The zucchini sticks were great. The Kobe burger and fries were great and could feed 2!! We have been disappointed with dinner in the past. Would recommend lunch or appetizers. Overall rating 5

Lovely clean rooms. Great bed large living room . Restaurant has excellent food. Had the crab shrimp salad for lunch and it was so good. Then for dinner had the filet mignon and was delicious. Good drinks. We decided to go for a boat ride and they have a small marina right there. You can water ski, tube or just have fun. Good breakfast included with room . I would say its a little noisy on the deck but only because its so popular. There's a beach right there also. I agree with another review that a pool would be great. View was super. I loved the place and didn't want to leave. Not too far from Tahoe city where you can river raft, great for families . Will come again soon !

Room Tip: We were In the garden suite. Nice room

Sunnyside is a wonderful place to stay for a night or two. We enjoyed the wonderful food, and beautiful surroundings of Lake Tahoe. I loved staying at Sunnyside and would recommend it to anyone who loves the rustic feel of the outdoors, and romance of the lake.
