“Perfect location for Tahoe stay”
Reviewed 23 January 2013

We had two weeks here recently - our first stay but we've visited for food many times. We used it as a base to ski around the lake. For us - we don't mind driving to ski - its perfect. Tahoe City can be reached in under an hour, Kirkwood is 40 mins away - weather permitting - and the Heavenly Gondola is reachable by free bus(stops outside hotel) in about 5 mins - but you're better off skiing from the Nevada lodges anyway :)

We had a fairly basic but comfy room, staff were always as friendly and helpful as it is possible to be and we would definitely use it as a Tahoe base again. The restaurants are excellent and very reasonably priced also, as is the sports bar area downstairs. Smoking is allowed indoors in Casinos in Nevada though, this can be an issue if you're not used to it. Otherwise it's excellent.

Stayed here on a Groupon deal during the holidays. We left a day earlier than expected to beat the storms and stayed in the Parlor Room. There were 5 of us total and our room (located in the Glenbrook Lodge building) was really roomy. There was pull out bed in the couch, a microwave, refrigerator and small bar area. Also double sinks in the bathroom. This room wasn't on our Groupon deal, I booked separately through expedia and got the room for $68. What a steal!

I want to note that the Glenbrook building is in the back. Very quiet, and not near the casino. We had young children with us so hanging out in the casino wasn't a big deal.

The next morning we went to check out of our parlor room into our Groupon rooms. I requested the Glenbrook building and they had two rooms on the second floor (I had two Groupons). Our rooms were literally right above where we stayed the previous night! Not as big but very comfortable and spacious enough for us. We also had a flat screen, and a balcony. Also large coat hooks which we appreciated to dry our snow jackets. Very comfortable rooms, and quiet! The only thing I missed was a fridge, or a microwave. It was so cold and snowy outside we used that as our fridge!

The hotel and casino overall looks dated and when you walk into the casino, there is no ventilation. I found myself coughing from the smoke (we get spoiled in California).
Lots of locals hang out. Our Groupon came with a pitcher of beer per night, and $10 slot play (upon joining the Lakeside Players Club). Lots of draft beers in the upstairs and downstairs bars to choose from.

It is a lot smaller than the bigger casinos like Harrahs, Mont Bleu. No dance club, and there are two restaurants, Latin Soul (very good), and Timber House. We didn't get to try Timberhouse, but Latin Soul was really great.

I would definitely stay here again for the coziness of this hotel, but I would have to stay in Glenbrook again. Our friends who met us at Lakeside with the same Groupon deal, got put in Edgewood Lodge, and their rooms were a lot smaller, no balcony on the first floor, and the TV was old school tube. Plus their hallway smelled of weed! If we were put in Edgewood, I don't think I would have come back. They saw our room and said definitely stay in Glenbrook. Can't really comment on the third Lodge (Marlabay Lodge).

Only a $5 cab right to Mont Bleu or a quick drive like 5 minutes and you are in the mix.

Room Tip: Stay in Glenbrook Lodge. Much Quieter and the rooms are bigger.

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.
