... Tuesday!" We awoke to the smell of bacon, eggs and French toast. For lunch we met my cousin Mary (who recently moved to the area) at In 'n Out. Dinner we had delicious tri-tip & sweet corn on the cob with homemade chocolate chip cookies for dessert. Tasty Tuesday was a complete success. We spent the whole day chatting and chewing. Unfortunately we are going to have to follow it up with "Weight Watchers ...
... along with many of the other nearby buildings, was haunted; and that many of the hotel guests have had encounters with the spirits. The building also has historical value, in that in 1862 at this site Samuel Clemens became Mark Twain. The town was literally built on the side of a mountain, walking from where we parked to the main street we had to walk up what seemed like a 45 degree grade. We definitely had a great time this afternoon.
... summit we traveled into beautiful ponderosa pine forests and cooler air. The drive around Lake Tahoe was a combination of 4 lane and 2 lane roads that traveled through mountain forest, residential areas full of expensive homes and resort towns that were crowded with vacationers. The entire roadway around the lake has been designated as scenic byways. The weather was cool but comfortable, and ...
A beautiful drive through snow capped mountains and pretty valleys to Lake Mono. Strange and unique sort of limestone looking formations out of the water, and we had a specialist guide to show us and explain all about it. Quite hot today.. and we travelled through gorgeous mountainous country, with rivers running along the valleys and snow on top of the mountains. Some of the cliffs above us were ...
After spending two weeks in Hawaii, a four day Easter weekend in Santa Cruz and waking up to snow this morning I'm feeling sluggish and anxious. I only have four days before the Chico,CA Wildflower Century. The weather forecast here in Tahoe is for more snow and/or rain. Oh well, I'll think of it as a training ride for the Lewis & Clark tour. Here are some pictures of friends and family at the Chico Wildflower ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Lakeside Inn and Casino Stateline
We stayed there simply because we wanted a Saturday check-in, and NONE of the major hotel casinos will do that (as if everyone can take Friday off!). The price was right, and the staff were VERY friendly and courteous. The room was a little small, but clean and comfortable - and how much time do you spend in a room while in Tahoe anyway?
The pictures in this website and the reviews made it seem like I was going to visit a 4-star hotel and they could never be so wrong. I am very disappointed with my stay at this place. If you think you are going to go to a hotel with an elevator and elegant rooms, think again. This place has the name of a hotel but it is really a motel with a casino attached to it. The pool was "out of order" because the heating was not activated. The soda machine was out of order. There was no refrigerator in the room to keep ice cold drinks in..thank God we took a cooler! The wait staff at La Taberna was very inattentive. We asked for utensils twice and twice we were ignored. We had to go seek them out ourselves. Coffee was never replenished. The rooms were dark, murky, and smelly. Overall, I would not recommend this place to anyone with class. Anyways, if you want a nice place to stay, I would suggest going to a better known hotel such as Ceasars, the Hyatt, or Harveys. Just my 2 cents.
first off.. this hotel is not a hotel but a motel.. upon arriving i didnt like the hotel because of the outside.. the casino was very tiny.. my room was very large though.. the bathroom layout was very nice.. the beds were alittle hard but the room was nicely decorated... i may stay here again if i go back to tahoe.. i would prefer embassy suites though.. the staff was also very friendly..all in all.. it was average..
I was very dissapointed with the Lakeside Inn. After reading the reviews posted here I decided to book a room even though it was a little above the price range I wanted. To my horror it was not worth the money. The heater did not get any warmer than 72. There is no view of the lake but rather a trailer park/temporary residence behind the Inn. First thing in the morning we were rudely woken up by children screaming from the trailor park. When we first checked in we tried to get a room one hour before the stated check in time, so I could get ready for a wedding we were to attend. Instead of being accomodating they said no and I was forced to change in the Casino bathroom! I would not reccomend this hotel to anyone and if you are smart you'll spend your money elsewhere.
Visited the Lakeside on my second snowboard trip to Tahoe this winter. A bit further down the block from the rest but worth the extra distance. This is definitely the "local casino" of Tahoe. Super laid back people, good slots, tables & video poker, killer bar. Weekend rates looked extremely cheap here when doing research on Expedia. There's also a Mexican restaurant here called the Taberna that's supposed to be one of the best. The place has a log cabin look and feel to it. I will definitely be back.
I stayed at Lakeside Inn for 4 nights. It was a wonderful place. It was cheaper than the other casion hotels, and needless to say, not as "upscale". However, besides sleeping, I didn't spend much time at the hotel, so it was okay. The rooms were nice and quiet, and the staff was amazingly nice. They weren't arrogant like the staff at other casino resorts. The food at the Taberna Mexican restaurant was amazing! I got about a 2 pound burrito for 4.95! (The Super Mario Burrito) Also, their other restuarant has a huge $2.99 breakfast (every day), and a nice $7.95 Prime Rib dinner. The hottub is huge, and a great place for relaxation. It is separated from the other casinos, but only about a quarter mile away. If you are looking for a nice place to stay... way better than "cheaper" hotels, and way cheaper than the "upscale" hotels, then Lakeside is for you.
It was great!
I stayed at the Lakeside Inn with my husband and daughter. I was a wonderful place for families. All the staff was great. The restaurant was good too. However, we didn't try the Mexican Restaurant. The room we were in was quite nice 2 queen beds and definetly had that cabin feel to it. A nice place to stay if you are looking for something affordable but nice.
Authentic Mexican Food Cheap at Taberna
Inside the Lakeside Inn and Casino on the lower floor is a great Mexican restaurant called Taberna. While it lacks atmosphere, the food is very authentic and tasty. Amazingly inexpensive too! Highly recommended if you want real Mexican food (no TexMex here). One of my 2 favorites in the Stateline/South Lake Tahoe area.
I would suggest the Lakeside Inn & Casino to anyone who wants a good deal on a ski/stay package for the WEEKENDS. Relative to other hotels, it was a great deal and the rooms were modern, yet very cozy and even had a cabin feel to them. I remember paying $140-150/person for a two night WEEKEND stay INCLUDING lift tickets to Sierra/Heavenly. It was also in a great location because we went to a ski rental place just up the street, and (with a coupon, printed from the internet) rented 2 complete ski sets for approximately $20. However, it is a little far from the rest of the casinos, but if you have a car, it is only a 3 minute drive. The breakfast their was delicious and CHEAP. On the down side, the shower does go hot/cold/hot/cold/etc. Overall, I would recommend this hotelto those who want a nice place to stay at an affordable rate.
