Lakeside Inn and Casino

One-Night Stay for Two in a Standard Room at Lakeside Inn and Casino in Lake Tahoe

Give as a Gift

Hidden-Gem Resort Near Casinos and Ski Slopes

It doesn’t surprise the staff at Lakeside Inn and Casino that readers of the Tahoe Daily Tribune picked their hotel as winner in the Best Casino, Loosest Slots, Friendliest Casino Employees, and Best Happy Hour categories. “We win ‘Best of’ awards every year,” says Lakeside Inn and Casino staffer Chris Garton. “We even won Best Valet Parking, but we don’t have valet parking.” Parking is actually adjacent to the resort’s rooms, which makes transporting gear to the nearby Heavenly Ski Resort easy—an outdoor change-of-pace to the casino’s bustling nightlife.

At the onsite Latin Soul restaurant, chef Alvaro Ochoa has been slicing and dicing for more than 24 years, crafting fare brimming with Latin American flavors. The chef mixes artichoke with blue crabmeat and roasted poblano peppers to fashion a dip for plantains, yucca chips, and garlic breadsticks. Diners dig in while surrounded by a fiery motif expressed in wall murals and red spiral-patterned upholstery.

The Tahoe Daily Tribune's Best Casino 2011 is a haven for locals and vacationers alike. Stripped of gaudy excess, Lakeside’s casino floor features high ceilings and walls fashioned with wood paneling or river rock. Seasoned card players can enter a nightly poker tournament, and newcomers can attend a Wednesday-night class that instructs on the finer points of blackjack, craps, creative nonfiction poetry, and poker.

South Tahoe: Natural Splendor Meets Glitz and Gambling

Located on the eastern side of the California-Nevada border, Stateline offers the glitz and glamour of the Silver State’s distinctive casinos while staying close to the unspoiled beauty of Lake Tahoe. Day trips to Emerald Bay State Park reward with postcard-worthy photo opportunities of the shimmering lake surrounded by glacier-carved granite. Hikers can take in the staggering Glen Alpine Falls, a 65-foot waterfall best enjoyed during the spring. At night, visitors hit Stateline’s glimmering nightclubs, and event-goers take in local concerts, events, and shows.

Black out curtains would be nice. Light from sliding door was really bright. Air conditioner wasnt very good. It was very warm in our room. The pool was very clean. It could use a little less chlorine, very strong.. The girl at check-in desk was very friendly and helpful. We loved the little deck outside our room. It was nice sitting out there in the evening. I would definitley go back. The Inn is close to everything!
