U.S. News Review

Perched on the California-Nevada border, this casino resort in Stateline, Nevada, is great for Lake Tahoe visitors looking to test the kindness of Lady Luck. The on-site casino's slots and table games afford plenty of ways to win (or lose) big, and visitors agree that the facility makes for a good few hours of play. Guests at Harrah's Lake Tahoe also enjoy the nightly entertainment found in the South Shore Room and the Peek Nightclub. And for a quieter experience, you can get a massage at Reflections The Spa or lounge by the indoor pool. The rooms aren't too shabby either with Gilchrist & Soames bath products and 300-thread-count sheets, though some recent guests say that the decor could use a facelift.

Critic Reviews


“Among the restaurants, the top-floor Friday's Station Steak & Seafood Grill, with good views from every table, is a standout (but an expensive one); there's also a buffet on the 18th floor.”


“World-class skiing by day and gambling by night — this is what splashy Harrah's offers the escapist traveler.”
