Last time I stayed in South Lake Tahoe was a few years ago with a friend and we stayed in a hotel at Stateline, which was fine: convenient for the casinos, gondola and nightlife, but a bit devoid of charm. This time I was returning with my mum - her first visit to Lake Tahoe, so wanted to stay somewhere that we could appreciate the natural surroundings.
I read the reviews on here with interest before booking my trip: quite a mixed bag I thought. Seems to me that there are a whole lot of people out there who expect to get a luxury 5 star hotel whatever money they pay. Well the Tahoe Lakeshore Lodge certanly isn't a 5 star luxury property, but nor does it claim to be, and nor does it charge those sort of prices!

Our primary reason to come to the area was for skiing and we found the Lakeshore Lodge to be an excellent base for us. The complimentary breakfast is a nice touch - sure, it's basic, but muffins, pastries, fresh fruit, juice, tea and coffee were all available and definitely saved us a few dollars. In the wee lounge there's also a free computer terminal for guests who didn't bring their own laptops: Really useful. The free ski shuttle picked us up right outside the front door in the morning and we could have arranged a pick up to go ski Sierra at Tahoe from here as well (we opted to drive instead, but the option was there).

Our room was one of the corner kitchen rooms - with a panoramic lakeview. Wow! The sunrise and sunset views are incredible! Inside the room we had loads of space - 2 big pine beds, a gas potbelly stove, table and chairs and a surprisingly well equipped kitchen. Having read some comments about the kitchen facilities of lodge rooms it's fair to say that my expectations were not too high, so to find a hob, oven, microwave and fridge freezer, as well as all the tools we needed to use them, was a real bonus. The only negative thing was the lighting levels in the bathroom. With the shower curtain pulled across it was like showering in the dark, but this is by no means the first hotel I've some across that has this problem.

Local amenites included a large Safeway supermarket about 5 minutes walk from the Lodge, as well as a pharmacy which doubles as a liquor store (woudn't get that in the UK!). There's also a few restaurants and takeaway food outlets in the immediate vicinity.

We are active people who like to walk so we headed off to Stateline one evening, It's not too far a walk (maybe half an hour?) but like so many places in the USA the pavements are not really used for walking and are not lit up at night. It's a really busy road and so it was quite scary. Advice... if you're going out after dark, take your car or take a cab!

Overall I was really impressed with the Takeshore Lodge and Spa. If you're looking for great views and a quiet location with good amenities close by then it absolutely performs. However, if you plan to go out every night to the Stateline area then it's probably better to stay in a Stateline Hotel.

Thanks for a great stay - I hope to be back soon!

I might be biased but I would have to agree with you. Lakeshore Lodge is a great spot for a relaxing ski vacation. We are centrally located, lots of amenities within walking distance, discount lift tickets, ski shuttles, grocery stores, etc. Sorry the bathrooms were so dark, we will look into that. Thank you for your review and for the accurate description of what we are and are not. We never try to misrepresent ourselves so it helps for people to know what to expect. Please come see us again the next time your are in the area.

We liked the Lakeshore Lodge & Spa and stayed in a hot tub suite. The location was wonderful -- just steps from the beach on the beautiful lake. Because it was July, the rooms got very hot at night. They should install ceiling fans - especially in the bedroom.
The kitchen was nice and equipped with pots and pans for cooking. Also, chairs and umbrellas on the beach would be wonderful! The hotel next door offered beach chairs and umbrellas. It was just too hot to be out in the sun all day without shade. Music on the beach Thursday night was soothing and fun. The casino's were 1.7 miles away - which was a long walk - there and back. All in all, the we had a wonderful time & Lake Tahoe was definitely worth seeing.

We spent a week here. The customer service was above and beyond! Never stayed anywhere with such great staff. Rooms are large and comfortable. Well worth the price. Views from ALL rooms to the lake. Balconies or porches for each room. You can truly relax and enjoy. We slept with the windows and doors open, listening to the lake. I can just imagine how wonderful it would be in the winter. This is definately where we will stay every time we go! Walking distance to resturants, grocery stores, pharmacy, gift shops.

Winters are beautiful here as well. When the weather allows I always recommend having your windows and doors open to enjoy the fresh air and relaxing sound of the lake. Our staff has been with us for a long time and we are very proud of them. Thank you for your review!

Well, I was expecting a little more from the reviews and title that it was a Spa. I was expecting an actual nice hotel. But instead it is nothing more than a motel. It was a little shabby … especially the elevator!! The room was big and it was fine …. nothing fancy … just pretty basic. The private beach was nice. The staff were excellent!! They were so helpful at giving tips on traveling around. And if you want to be in the busy part of South Tahoe, then the location is great. Lots of restaurants nearby. Although, you do have to drive to the casinos and Heavenly Mountain, which is fine if you don’t mind that. Overall, it was an old motel, and not all that nice, but it is a fine place to sleep if you don’t mind something average.

When I booked online and was about to walk into the hotel. I thought this was like every other hotel... glorifying every bit of pros & downplaying the cons. For starters, its not true at all. The hotel was more than a hotel, the 1-bedroom loft was a very comfy cozy condo. The interior was large, spacious and well-decorated. The TV, furniture and other amenities were top of the line. The view was lot better than promised. It had the best lake view we could have wished for. It was a memorable stay. I had been to many different motels/hotels at LAX, San Diego and other places in California just recently and there is no comparison. This deal was spectacular.
