Rooms & Rates

Lakeside Inn is centrally located in South Lake Tahoe, a half-mile from the California-Nevada border. It is perfect for outdoor enthusiasts and is close to ski resorts, a number of hiking trails and the lake. It is also in the middle of all of the gambling action. This inn is a favorite among locals thanks to its mountain-resort community vibe. 

This casino has it all -- slots, blackjack, craps, roulette and live action poker. On Fridays, $1,100 in free play is given between 4 p.m. and 9 p.m. Inquire about Friday Freebies upon arrival.

Fill up in the morning at the two restaurants on property with a hearty breakfast that doesn't break the bank. For dinner, head to The Timbers restaurant for American fare and spectacular views of the Sierras and Mount Tallac.

They won't give you drink coupons at check in. You have to jump through hoops and sign up in there casino to get one of them. For a two night stay you must have to go through all that again. We didn't bother

Really nice room, very comfortable room. Dual pane windows on the patio door kept the room temperature perfect. Adorable rubber ducky nestled in the toiletries. We named him Denny Ducky.
