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.

A year ago, I booked 3 nights at the Hard Rock, well before the Covid issue. Last week we arrived at hotel for a Wednesday thru Friday stay. At check-in I was told virtually all of the amenities were not avail (Covid) or only avail on weekend. The A/C in room didn't work. The sink didn't drain. There was NO housekeeping services. On the 2nd day I looked at my invoice on the TV and was shocked to see a $28.50 resort fee applied per day. I called customer service and was rudely told even though services were limited, I had to pay. Many hotels in Nevada have waived this fee since they aren't providing services. Hard Rock is a rip off and this property is NOT a resort. Read less

Only Single counter to serve customer on a weekend. 3 Hrs long checkin time at 6 PM while checkin starts at 4 PM. Think about waiting in Queue with 200 more people It was terrible, when asked why they cant open more customer - the answer was : maintaining Social Distancing - By keeping people in neck to neck Queue

Tahoe has always been my favorite place to visit. Just love the nature. First time I stayed at Hard Rock very nice cleans great atmosphere. They might haveMaintenance issues but other then that, rooms are amazing, great view. I would be glad to visit again.

After sitting for 30..yes 30 minutes on the phone to talk to security all I got was a “oh... sorry”. Seriously!? I wanted to know who entered my room and WHY!… Read more
This is not a safe hotel to stay in. During my trip while I was naked blow drying my hair and employee entered my room.. I yelled and he ran out. Yes, I had a do not disturb sign on my door. After sitting for 30..yes 30 minutes on the phone to talk to security all I got was a “oh... sorry”. Seriously!? I wanted to know who entered my room and WHY! After voicing how unsafe that made me feel they promised to talk to security and get back to me ASAP. Of course, I NEVER heard back. I had to reach out again for answers and simply got a “it happens, it was an accident we assure you it will not happen again.” No care, I should have called the cops but was totally spooked by the whole accident. In hindsight, I wish I did call the cops. So since it “happens” I would be careful if you decide to stay here. Read less

We stayed here so we can go swimming. Online said pool open. Got there said pool close told go to the beach. The closest access to the beach wanted to charge us $65. Went back to the hotel and complained. Manager waived resort fee and gave food credit. Ate at the hotel. Later that night wanted to watch tv- remote doesn’t work took 45 min to get someone to help. Noisy during the night. People loud slamming doors. Then get home and find out we were charged for dinner and resort fee and no one will return my calls. Read less
