Stateline Nevada draws travelers like a magnet, due to the sheer number of Stateline hotels, casinos, and things to do in the area. Whether you are looking for a hotel in Stateline NV or a vacation rental, the high number of properties makes even a last minute booking a possibility. The town itself has a modest population, which swells each year during the busy winter and summer tourist seasons. Travelers are drawn by Stateline casinos, nearby ski resorts, and the opportunity to enjoy summertime outdoor activities. Whether you want to try your luck at blackjack or relax on the beach, Stateline will deliver.
If you’re looking for a hotel in Stateline NV, there are four big resorts and a variety of other smaller accommodation to choose from. The four big resorts include casinos and are MontBleu (formerly Caesars), Horizon, Harrahs Lake Tahoe, and Harvey’s Lake Tahoe. If you’re looking for more modest accommodation in Stateline Nevada, one local favorite is the Lakeside Inn. Another option is to choose from the many hotels of the neighboring town of South Lake Tahoe, California. Many of the South Lake Tahoe hotels arrange for shuttles to bring guests back and forth to the Stateline casinos if you’d like to stay in California but spend time gambling as well.
Another famous feature is a road called Kingsbury Nevada. Formally called State Route 207, the Kingsbury Grade is an uphill road stretching more than ten miles that connects Stateline Nevada to State Route 206 in the Carson Valley. This road runs up and over a mountain pass, providing spectacular views before dropping down again towards Gardnerville on the other side. If you’re looking for a hotel in Stateline NV, the odds are that it will be located near the Kingsbury Grade. Affordable hotels are a main attraction here, but the vacation rentals are really what draw groups. From family reunions to groups of friends, these rentals are ideal.
Many travelers choose Stateline Nevada because it is affordable and easy to reach with public transportation. An express bus runs between Stateline and the Reno-Tahoe International Airport. Tickets are reasonably priced, but if you’re looking to spend even less, there is also a local shuttle for those visitors who don’t want to brave the steep incline of Kingsbury Grade. If you’re planning a trip during the winter ski season, you will also be able to depend on shuttles that will transport people from Stateline and South Lake Tahoe to the ski resorts.
Even though there are plenty of outdoor things to do in Tahoe, some people arrive with no intention of skiing, hiking, or enjoying the great outdoors at all. Stateline casinos can be very addicting, and even some travelers with the best intentions may wind up sacrificing that sunset kayak tour for a great day at the casino and a few hands of blackjack. With four casinos to choose from, you will be able to have a different experience every night. If you choose vacation rentals over a hotel, you might find yourself with more money to enjoy a little bit of gambling! There are many places beyond Stateline to research for vacation rentals, including towns along North Lake Tahoe and South Lake Tahoe such as Incline Village.
