Lakeside Inn and Casino is a landmark on its own. It has very interesting stories that the Inn will never run out of. It has undergone numerous ownerships, fire and even an attempt at robbery. Lakeside Inn and Casino may have been around for only 25 years, but its story of how it got to where it is now is quite fascinating.
The Inn was originally a smaller casino named Caesars Inn which was launched in 1969 with only five table games and around 100 slot machines. It was operated by Grover L. Rowland, B. A. Stunz, and Herbert Fisher.
In 1972, Harvey A. Gross, who is the owner of Harvey’s Resort Hotel along the state line about a mile to the southwest, purchased Caesars Inn and the land around it including the old Tahoe Sky Harbor airport and casino site on the north, and extended the property to include around 130 rooms.
The new Harvey’s Inn was undergoing renovation in 1973 when a fire broke out while workers are welding the revamped casino. The fire damaged the new casino area and motel lobby heavily which resulted in water damage to its restaurant area.
When Harvey A. Gross died, Harvey’s Inn was sold in 1985 and on May of that same year, the new Lakeside Inn and Casino was launched under president and general manager Rick Jorgenson.
Throughout the years, Lakeside Inn and Casino has undergone some changes which include much of its original layout. During the 90s, weddings and receptions were held in the banquet rooms, while in 2001, the entire lower casino floor was fully renovated; converting the banquet rooms to what is now The Tavern Bar, Latin Soul Restaurant and the Race and Sports Book.
To date the Lakeside Inn and casino has remained independently owned even if all the local casino landscape has changed from independent to corporate ownership.
