Great place, great value, great location. Front desk gal Teresa is a sweetie! She was professional, helpful and friendly. Room rates are very affordable and the amenities make it an enjoyable destination. Skiing at Heavenly and the beach at the lake are both within minutes of the hotel. I'll definitely stay here again.

I stayed here a few years ago and thought it was a good value so I went back. I don't know how this place earned two stars. I suppose that people were rating it based on affordability and their customer service experience. I will give them that. It is hard to write a negative review when you actually do receive... More

We stayed at ABVI in Tahoe City last April and booked Casino Center because the rate differential more than covered the cost to drive plus dinner. However, we may have neglected to read the fine print about the room. Arrived the Monday before Christmas, which is the beginning of winter season. One could reasonably expect that the lodgings at a... More

Clean rooms. Large room due to upgrade. Really nice and helpful service. Breakfast is included and ok. Hot-tub available also in January :) perfect for a cheap but good stay. Theresa was really helpful while checking in as due to third party booking three adults where supposed to sleep in one bed.

my buddy and I got lost in the icy mountains and ended up in south Lake Tahoe on New Year's Eve. Teresa was such a sweet motherly person who helped us get a room we could afford for the night. She really provided wonderful service and was extremely helpful. It's not often you come across a person that genuinely cares... More

Thank you very much for posting your experience with us here. It's terrific when we get comments like yours. Most guests leave satisfied but don't take the time to share their thoughts with others. On the contrary, those with negative feelings nearly always share their experiences. Thank you for helping to balance out our review profile. I have to agree...... More

We arrived on December 28th, and it was closed to New Year's Eve, and the price was really a bargain and worth it! The madam helping us check-in was very nice and helpful! Later we decided to leave one day earlier cuz we want to hang around other places, and the hotel has been very patient in helping us and... More

I can't complain about anything for the price we paid because it was all a great value. The thing that made the stay extra ordinary is that each and every staff was kind, helpful, and cared about the customer most of all. There's nothing worse than being greeted by a grumpy miserable staffers that hates their job and shows no... More

Despite an online reservation screw up that was probably my fault, the very friendly staff worked it out so we could enjoy our stay. The staff has always been friendly, the rooms clean and you can't beat the location - walking distance to casinos. We have made this our go to hotel, have brought friends and will continue to recommend... More

Thank you for taking the time to post your positive review of our hotel. Of course, like most properties in South Lake Tahoe, we are of an older design. Regardless, we work day in and day out to keep our hotel in good condition and appealing. Many have even gone to the extent of saying we are charming... and I... More

I've stayed at a lot of the cheap motels in South Lake Tahoe and had been wavering about whether the Americas Best Value was worth trying. I gave it a try and unfortunately I don't have much good to stay about my stay. First: Our room was not clean. There was dirt on the bed, crap on the floor, gunk... More
