I took my wife here for our anniversary. We were blown away how nice it was for the price. It was right on the lake with a balcony that gave us an amazing view. The staff was extremely friendly. They also have a very nice Spa there as well. After getting a couples massage, I booked my wife another massage a couple days later because she enjoyed it so much. They have a nice continental breakfast, a fireplace in the room, and decorations in the room that make it feel like a cabin in the woods. I can't recommend this hotel enough!!!

We had stayed at #134 and #234 both corner condo units (270 degree views) in front of the the lake with kitchen and liked the stay. Views are great during sun rise and moon set. Excellent place if you just want to sit and take photograph (bring zoom lenses) lake Tahoe. Breakfast is basic danish, bread, coffee and apple juice, but the kitchen can be a very useful to prepare something hot and savor it with the scenery. CVS pharmacy is just behind it.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Tahoe Lakeshore Lodge & Spa. The staff is outstanding and went out of their way to ensure a great stay. The rooms are very homey (although a bit dark), with rustic furniture, gas stove heat and balconies that directly overlook Lake Tahoe. The spa was incredible too. The lodge is actually a nicely renovated motel. The lobby is very comfortable and the rooms open to the outside like a typical motel. The breakfast is a bit spartan - muffins, coffee and apple juice, but you can enjoy it in front of the fireplace or overlooking the lake. The location is about a mile from the casinos and gondola or an easy drive up the mountain directly to the lodge. Don't be scared of their motel past - it's an awesome place to stay. I believe there are also condos available in a different building too.

Tahoe Lakeshore Lodge and Spa hit its marks in every way. It's tucked away right off the main street, which seems miles away as soon as you walk in the front door. Views of the lake and mountains are spectacular. Our room was large, quiet, clean and had a rustic, lodge feel, but the huge windows and balcony are what made it special. Atmosphere is relaxed, but all the staff were welcoming, attentive and friendly, especially at the front desk. I thought the price we paid was more than fair. You can walk to great dining, groceries, ski shops and a liquor store. World-class casinos and skiing are just a few blocks away. My wife did the spa and she swears it was the best massage she's had in her life, and she's had a lot of them. You won't get a better view from a hot-tub anywhere. Wi-fi covers the whole property and was consistently reliable.

So, if you are looking for a pretentious, high-class, high-priced place, keep looking. If you want to go where you can experience all Tahoe has to offer and still have a few bucks left for the casinos, this is your place. I'll definitely stay there next time I'm in Tahoe!

The approach to the Lodge - either by the road, or taking the alley between Heidi's Restaurant and CVS pharmacy - can give a person pause: at best, humble, at worst, dumpy. HOWEVER, these looks are definitely deceiving.

I stayed solo (friend cancelled) in a double queen, but have booked a single queen for next time. There is a great variety of rooms (including with kitchens), as well as spa packages, to meet the needs of just about everyone. The room was cozy, and the balcony view spectacular. Also, if you book on the 2nd floor, you will have access to both sauna and the Elements Spa (a separate but related business) without ever having to take stairs. The first floor, though, will give you the beach just a few steps away, and the third floor would be even more private and quiet. Exterior entrances and keys give it a rustic feel, and the lobby/breakfast room was welcoming and had a computer; wi-fi access is also available. Finally, the staff was very friendly and accommodating.

The location of the Lodge is fantastic - just a stoplight away from Ski Run Road (Heavenly), and about 1 mile after that from the casinos, if that's what you're looking for. There are lots of restaurants and a Safeway within walking distance, some of them accessible by walking along the beach (including the Tahoe Queen paddle boat). Safety didn't seem to be a concern at all.

My only complaints: I didn't find the bed that comfy, and a TV guide would have been helpful. FYI, my room had a DVD player, so keep that in mind as an option for room-based entertainment...

My family and I had an incredible time at the Lakeshore Lodge and Spa. Our room was nice with a large deck overlooking the water and the staff was great. We took full advantage of the hotel being right on the water where we were steps from the pool/hot tub and beach. The location was perfect with casinos, wonderful restaurants and many outdoor activities minutes away. We plan on making our trip an annual event, and plan on staying at the Tahoe Lakeshore Lodge and Spa every year.

Nothing like sitting in a hot tub on the beach in January! This place is great... very clean and comfortable with the best location on the lake. The beach was right off the balcony. It is a short walk to restaurants and groceries. The staff was awesome.... very friendly and accomodating. I plan to stay there next time I am in Tahoe.
