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.
