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

Thank you very much for your kind review. I agree with you, as I am often amazed with the attitude and friendliness of my staff. I wish I could take credit but I'm convinced the're just nice people. This results in a positive and friendly work environment and is transmitted to our guests. Try as you may... I don't think... 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

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. I regret that your stay was not satisfying. Naturally we understand we are not a newer property but we try to price our property accordingly. Most people are attracted to our property because of our very affordable room rates and great location but complain it may have not been what... More

We had a fantastic time here. Great bargain and the rooms were good for what we paid for. My girlfriend and I found this gem and was quiet surprised on the level of service we got. Grant it its not a 5 star hotel yet the staff was nice. We arrived late late on a Halloween night and was accommodated... More

Avoid this place , it was the worst experience of my life, I honestly have never stayed at a hotel as bad and as this one. We stayed here in November and the room was extremely COLD, it takes 7-8 hours to warm up , and they have an old non-working thermostat. The staff is RUDE, the room was dirty... More

Dear future travelers...We regret that you must witness this ruthless fraud attempt. This review is a dishonest and bitter attempt to receive free accommodations by means of extortion; an unfortunate issue of our modern user review forums in our industry. We responded to this unusual guest immediately. We examined the room and it was warm. We instructed the guest how... More

Due to an unforeseen circumstance, we stayed at this place a little longer than our original plan and the manager, James Clark could not have been more accommodating. The place is older but everything has been redone. For example, the bathtub is new with new tile and grout, and the toilet was new as well as the floor. There are... More

Although there was some construction going on at this hotel during our stay, it did not interfere with sleep or comfort. We chose this place due to it's location, off of the main highway and in a quieter neighborhood. The room was an average size, nothing fancy but suited our needs very well. A very clean room in which to... More

The wifi does not work few steps far from the routers. So forget about getting internet in your room. The bed of my room was very old, the mattress with a hole in the middle. The furniture needs to be updated. Even and old tube TV in the room. I wouldn't be so disappointed if I could have a comfortable... More

My husband & I wanted a one-night getaway & love South Lake Tahoe. We were on a budget, but were cautious to pick just any random, cheap hotel. We picked this one because of the good reviews, & ratio of good compared to bad. We left home late & had dinner before arriving to the hotel, so it was just... More
