Trip Advisor


"The Lakeside Inn has become our favorite in Tahoe -- don't know what exactly makes playing there such a delight, but it is like gaming in your own living room with drink service. See you this weekend!" Carole H.

"The Lakeside is our favorite place to play, eat and drink in Stateline!" Gregory G.

"Ready to win the Wheel of Fortune Progressive at Lakeside!" Mark C.

" I look forward to playing on the long craps table " Wayne H.

"I really enjoy gambling at Lakeside. ALL employees at Lakeside are so nice, helpful and personable. I remember going to Lakeside one year with my sister. We both stayed pretty much at the crap table - it was a wonderful experience. You all remembered who we were and what we drank, even a day later."

"LAKESIDE ROCKS! The only place to have a fun atmosphere NOT focused 100% on gambling and the food is GRRRREAT.""

"You have a great place!! Gambling, food and lodging has always been nice! Your personnel is above far the coolest!!"


"Just got back from the lake today and we had stayed in a 'famous name' (practically across the street) from your place and were totally unimpressed with the service and unprofessional attitude of most of the staff there. I've played the slots at Lakeside before and just for fun went there with my wife. Before we had spent any money at all we had already been greeted by at least 4-5 employees with a friendly smile and a sincere attention to our needs AND WE WEREN'T EVEN STAYING THERE! You can bet we will be back and we won't stay anywhere else! Your staff training and selection program should get big kudo's from everyone who comes in. No surprise to us that you did the 'clean sweep' of the Best of Tahoe with 14 awards this year. Thanks for making our trip more fun. Next time we'll stay where people are friendly. Thanks again." Jeff N.

"Thanks so much for our great vacation. We had a great time. I can't find a bad thing to say about anyone or anything. The thunder storms, the fireworks, the food, and all the friendly dealers, workers, maids, everyone was wonderful. I doubt we will ever go back to Vegas or Reno. Even though our friends are in Incline I doubt seriously if we will stay at the Biltmore again. The half hour ride to see them is so well worth it because the Lakeside Inn is the best. We are small town people and don't like the big city casino's, we felt totally at home staying with you. Thanks again and hopefully we can find some more time off to come out again before winter hits. I only wish our employees treated our customers as well as yours do. Thanks." Howard and Pat

"Your service is second to none. Your restaurants are excellent and the rooms are cozy and comfortable. For the size, the casino has a lot of gaming to choose from, and you cannot beat the drink specials! We can't wait to come back to stay next time we are in Lake Tahoe." Brian & Sabrina Y.
