“Great place for value and location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

My husband and I are frequent visitors to Tahoe and have stayed at many of the local hotels. We admit we are deal hunters and have been very lucky on the places we have found. Our latest find was the Lakeside Casino and Inn. Since we live fairly close to Tahoe we don't like to spend a lot to treat ourselves to an overnight stay. If you too are skiers this is a great place to end up after a fabulous day on the slopes. The Apres' Ski vibe is great here, with the first beer on the house (they have a great selection of beer to choose from on tap). The staff are very pleasant...from check in to bartenders to servers at their two on-site restaurants (if you too are a deal hunter...they have a great $4.99 breakfast deal selection that will fuel you up before you head out for a morning of skiing). On the rooms, they are comfortable and modest. The bathrooms are clean and have been semi-updated with granite counter tops. The showers are nothing special (but again-clean, and that's what is important to us). We have stayed here twice and have had both a soft bed and a hard bed...so if you have a preference, you might want to ask. As far as it's location, it's about a mile from the main casino area. If your there to ski the Go Blue bus can pick you up right out front, and bring you directly to the ski lifts (if that's what's important to you), or it's only a couple of miles to drive to the Gondola at Heavenly. Just know that the parking at the Gondola is pricey and fills up quickly. Only a couple of miles further though is the California Lodge where parking is free, but again can fill up on busy weekends. The great thing about Tahoe is you can get on a Go Blue bus from just about anywhere, so you have many options. Overall, this was a great find and we would definitely recommend it and stay here again.

I booked this hotel online as it gave great rates. I was not sure about its location or the influence of the casino. I was pleasantly surprised on all counts. It is right on the Highway 50 just past the monster casinos that sit right on the California/Nevada border. The ski shuttle bus stops literally at the front door, which is great given the price of parking in the middle of the village. The casino is small and there if you want it. The rooms are spacious and well appointed and there are two impressive restaurants, if there is too much snow to drive. Downstairs Latin Soul has a creative menu, inspired by central and south America. Upstairs, the Timber House has more traditional fare, but well prepared and presented. It also has a unique bar ledge without the bar to eat and look out - it is a great place to eat if you are on your own!

My family has stayed here on a number of occaisions and have had nothing but a positive experience each and every time we've been there. They have reasonable rates and a nice selection of rooms, including spacious suites. Every time we've eaten at least one breakfast at the restaurant, and if it's dumping snow the Inn is a great place to hang out: casino, bar, restaurant, hot tub.... it's great.

Room Tip: Ask for a golf course view.

My husband and recently visited Tahoe for the first time. The room we stayed in at the Lakeside Inn and Casino was fabulous. I was suprised on how nice it was. It was a very comfortable atmosphere. The only thing we did not like about the room is there was no fridge. That would have made the stay perfect. Besides that, we were very impressed and would definately stay here again.

Room Tip: The back right building of the hotel was where our room was. I believe that building is newer than t...

The room was large but scarcely furnished, don't plan on putting your items in a dresser. There was a shelving unit in the closet though. We arrived in town between 1pm and 2pm and they checked us right in with not issues (check in time is at 3pm). Room was freezing upon arrival (early November, outside it was snowing and about 27 degrees) Would be nice if they turned the heat on a bit for incoming guests. Staff was super friendly. Beds were so-so on the comfort level. There was a vandalism issue with my and several other vehicles one night. Nothing too serious. They offered to help but what they offered was nothing close to replacement value of what was damaged (I don't think they had to offer anything but when they offer a $12 "fix" for a hundred or more dollars worth of damage, it's a bit of a slap in the face).
Overall it was a nice enough room with easy access to the small hotel and a couple of good restaurants. I liked the little patio. With deals from Groupon or Living Social, you can't beat the price for a place in the Tahoe area. Hopefully they're security will be on higher alert in the future. Without the vandalism issue I would have given 4 stars.

Room Tip: I liked being upstairs to help with the noise, there are stairs and an elevator to get there.

Lakeside Inn and Casino in Stateline, Nevada is a good place to rest if you are looking for an R & R in the Lake Tahoe area. The place is near the famous Lake Tahoe and if you like to jog or run, it is a good starting point. I recommend the rooms located in the back of the hotel. I enjoyed staying in this hotel.

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!!
