The Lakeside Inn and Casino has made a name for itself as a locals’ favorite on the South Shore. Slightly removed from the group of high-rise casino resorts clustered at the state line, the Lakeside has maintained a Tahoe charm, evidenced in its wood-shingle exterior and timber-themed interior.This Sierra-lodge theme carries over into the hotel rooms, furnished with rustic furniture and smooth-hewn wood paneling. Another feature that sets the Lakeside apart from other hotels and resorts is the property’s commitment to being Fee Free. There are no hidden charges, such as service fees or resort fees, nor is there a charge for the WiFi. Hotel guests even receive free day passes to the local gym, Kahle Community Center, just across the street. For the activity-minded, Lakeside has a year-round hot tub and a seasonal outdoor pool, and there is a recently completed bike path that leads to two of the nearby Nevada-side Lake Tahoe beaches. All this, and pet-friendly rooms are available as well.

Dining is available at two on-site restaurants, The Timbers and Latin Soul. The Timbers has a classic Nevada-style ambiance, with open-beam ceilings and a new, fresh décor. Open all day and night, the restaurant offers traditional American fare as well as high-end dining options. Latin Soul is a fresh addition to the Lakeside, and Executive Chef Alvaro Ochoa has rapidly built quite a reputation for his Latin Fusion menu. One of the highlights of this restaurant is the Friday and Saturday Brazilian Barbeque, which includes endless portions of slow-roasted meats carved right at the table.

The casino offers everything you could want in a gaming establishment, from poker and blackjack and roulette, to slots and craps and a sports book. Look for the 3-to-2 odds on all blackjacks and the 10-times odds on all numbers at the craps table. In line with the philosophy of being one of the friendliest spots in town, there is the University of Lakeside, a weekly class that teaches the fundamentals of the games. On the main casino floor is also the Coffee Bar serving locally roasted Alpen Sierra coffees as well as coffee alcohol beverages, smoothies, salads, bagels and more.
