South Lake Tahoe, especially in Nevada, has a really interesting architecture. He's trying to recreate the Las Vegas experience for half a mile. High tower hotel, the bright lights, glitz and players. Harvey Resort Casino is located on the border with California, so many people run across a quaint part of California (just across the road) to try their luck. We stayed at Harvey's in the middle of May ….
Our room had a beautiful view. Lake Tahoe in all its glamor with surrounding forests and snow-capped mountains. I keep looking at this amazing country … Hotel room was decent. Clean and modest. Directions to the hotel though did not give me the lake Lake. The air inside the resort was very smoky. All had a focus on gambling. With all this beautiful nature around us, we were completely isolated from it.
The staff was pleasant. The hotel was a little dated, although it seems that they make the most of what they have. We did not try any restaurant here.
The highlight of the trip was staying away from any urban areas. Lake Tahoe is so beautiful and offers such a variety of activities that once you're here, the last thing I would recommend is to hang around your hotel and inhale cigarette smoke. Next visit we will probably stop in California on a smaller hotel / motels.
