Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Lake Tahoe

Heavenly, Lake Tahoe

The hotel

Newly renovated to a rock and roll standard, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Resort is ideally placed in South Lake Tahoe to take advantage of just about everything! As well as a casino with slot machines and table games, it’s home to the largest outdoor pool in the area. Bag yourself a lounger, there’s plenty of them, and order a cool cocktail from the bar, soaking up the relaxed vibe. All the rooms are well equipped and spacious and there’s even an Elvis Suite. Yep, the great man himself stayed here whilst performing in the town in the 1970s and Hard Rock have come along and paid homage to that fact – as is only right! Other delights include the Park Prime Steakhouse, often home to live music and the Fire Break Kitchen & Bar. Center Bar is another place where live concerts are often held, full of cool blues and dramatic blacks; it’s a great place to while away an uber cool evening. Open 24/7 is The Oyster Bar, the first-ever raw seafood bar of its kind on the South Shore – chow down on fresh seasonal oysters as well as American classics such as gumbo, jambalaya and pan roasts. When you can tear yourself away from the hotel, the hiking trails are some of the most beautiful in the world – explore them on foot or reception will hire you a bike.

When I found out that this was a remodel of a different hotel line I was a little worried. Unfortunately my fears came true. The accommodations were terrible. The room that we stayed in had no AC and the bed was so soft that you sank into it. The rock memorabilia was scarce and the store was tiny. There was also no Hard Rock Cafe. There was some… Read more

There was some other restaurant in house. The staff was great however. Read less

To all future Hotel guests this is NOT a Hard Rock Hotel like Vegas!!!! It's the worst hotel in lake Tahoe! It's old and smelly and the service doesn't even rate a 1 star. Stay here at your own risk..Also remember the hard Rock in Vegas was sold. This one is not affiliated with any of the other hard rocks.. it's so lame the hard Rock restaurant is… Read more

After reading the bad reviews, we decided to stay elsewhere in Tahoe, but decided to venture out and check out the casino. We were very pleasantly surprised! It was great.

Next time we are in Tahoe, I think we stay at the Hard Rock. Read less

Nice hotel at a reasonable price. We stayed on lvl 15 which has a brilliant view of the lake. Nice large and clean room with everything you need. Only disappointment was our shower leaked into the carpet (tub clearly not sealed properly) so every time we had a shower the entry carpet and safe area where soaked. Informed the front desk an hour or… Read more

Only disappointment was our shower leaked into the carpet (tub clearly not sealed properly) so every time we had a shower the entry carpet and safe area where soaked. Informed the front desk an hour or so after we checked in. He said maintenance would be right there. They did not end up coming. Upon check out we informed the front desk again and our resort fee was removed for compensation. We were satisfied with the outcome. Lovely place with great staff. We would stay again, however hoping next time there is a better communication about maintenance. Read less

We tried Harrah’s and Harvey’s last night, so tonight we went to the Hard Rock Casino. We thought this was the nicest of the three. Large and relatively smoke free, with a nicer choice of slot machines. There wasn’t even ashtrays everywhere and the clientele was much nicer as well, not sure why. We had a good time, won a little, lost a little and… Read more
We tried Harrah’s and Harvey’s last night, so tonight we went to the Hard Rock Casino. We thought this was the nicest of the three. Large and relatively smoke free, with a nicer choice of slot machines. There wasn’t even ashtrays everywhere and the clientele was much nicer as well, not sure why. We had a good time, won a little, lost a little and stayed for several hours on a small amount of money. The restrooms were centrally located and spic n’ span. We didn’t try any of the restaurants. The drink girls were around if you needed them. Read less
