We really wanted a nice place, clean and well located, that wouldn't break the bank... we found it here for sure! This place is not super fancy or chi-chi, so if you're looking for that, look on the Nevada side (if you can stand the casino-vibe), only one mile away. Lakeside is clean, well-maintained, and quiet. It's located right on the beach, which is so fabulous. We walked nearly everywhere, which made dinners out a dream. We had a small, full kitchen in our King studio, and really enjoyed our favorite breakfasts and occasional left-overs lunches there or on the balcony. Had we not wanted to walk everywhere, the hotel offers a complimentary on-demand shuttle that opperates from 8 - midnight every day, so that's nice. Safeway with Starbucks is across the street, and Long's Drugs is next door. The gym is minimal, a handful of nice machines but no free weights. There is an amazing gym about a 5 min drive away called Push that has day rates and punch cards for those most dedicated to working out. Push also has a spa, and if you get treatments there (which we did) they include a day pass to the gym... a really nice bonus for us! We loved this place and will certainly go back! Travel website price saved us signigicantly, like 10%, so we'd book through them again, too!
