Lakeside Inn and Casino

One Night Stay for Two with Beer and Optional Ski/Snowboard Rental at Lakeside Inn and Casino in Greater Lake Tahoe

Give as a Gift

Hidden-Gem Resort near Casinos and Ski Slopes

Mark Twain touted Lake Tahoe as “the fairest picture the whole earth affords,” but most people here aren’t content to just admire the scenery, especially in winter. There are more than a dozen ski resorts around Tahoe, and it has become a haven for avid skiers and snowboarders. At Lakeside Inn and Casino, you take a complimentary shuttle to some of Tahoe's exhilarating runs. At night, come back to the hotel and enjoy what readers of the Tahoe Daily Tribune picked as the winner in the Loosest Slots, Casino with Friendliest Employees, and Happy Hour categories for Best of Tahoe.

The casino draws in locals and vacationers alike with its blackjack and craps tables, poker room, and slot machines. Its floor is free of gaudy excess; it features high ceilings and walls fashioned with wood paneling or river rock. A Wednesday-night class instructs players on the finer points of blackjack, craps, creative nonfiction poetry, and poker, and there's a nightly poker tournament.

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. He mixes artichoke with blue crabmeat and roasted poblano peppers to create a tasty dip for plantains, yucca chips, and garlic breadsticks, all served in a dining room replete with fiery wall murals and red spiral-patterned upholstery.

South Tahoe: Natural Splendor Meets Glitz and Gambling

Located on the eastern side of the California-Nevada border, Stateline has the glitz and glamour of Nevada's distinctive casinos, but is also close to the unspoiled beauty of Lake Tahoe. Each winter, Tahoe's Sierra Nevada mountains get some 400 inches of snowfall, making it a must-visit destination for skiers and other winter-sports enthusiasts. Of the many nearby ski resorts, Heavenly Mountain Resort is the closest to Lakeside Inn and Casino. It boasts nearly 100 downhill trails and a terrain park geared toward all experience levels. From December 19 through December 31, Heavenly Mountain hosts holiday-related activities, including ice skating and live ice sculpting.

When you’re not skiing, it's worth it to take a day trip to Emerald Bay State Park, where you can take advantage of the postcard-worthy photo opportunities of the shimmering lake surrounded by glacier-carved granite.

At night, tourists hit up Stateline’s glimmering nightclubs and take in a variety of local concerts, events, and shows.
