Made an account just to write this review. Service was phenomenal! Rika was an amazing host and made sure everything about your stay was working out well. She was also up daily serving breakfast with a side of good conversation. For the price, the location can't be beat- in Tahoe City just 10 minutes from Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows... More

Beautiful stay in the very warm, comfortable & clean rooms at the Aviva Inn. Highly recommend staying here when visiting Lake Tahoe. Shopping & good complex directly across the road on the Lake Front! The lovely Rika at the front desk made our stay very enjoyable. The free breakfast here at the Inn was the most delicious best breakfast we... More

There aren't a lot of inexpensive motel options in this area. Aviva Inn had a reasonable price. The room was sufficient and it had nice touches. The breakfast area is small but the fresh cooked waffles are great! Also hard boiled eggs to provide some proteins, cereal, toast, coffee, etc. The manager was very friendly. The wall heater kept the... More

My kids ski at Squaw and Alpine Meadows. Our family stays at this hotel for most weekends during the ski season. What keeps us getting back are the value, location and the warmness of the hotel manager. The hotel is not the fancy kind, but sufficient for our basic need. The beds are big and comfortable; there are microwave and... More

I can't imagine how this motel has such a positive rating. Admittedly, the location is very good and it was cheap in March, but you get what you pay for (or even less). I travel a lot and I travel cheap. I am cheap! But compared to the many other cheap places I have stayed this place was at the... More

We stayed at this terrible motel only one night in march 15 (room 9). It was old, dirty and smelly. The sheets were dirty, the carpet is old, the room was dark. And bedbugs, believe me... We'll never go back.

I stayed at this hotel for two nights. The room basically looked like the photo. Aviva Inn was the least expensive accommodation near Squaw Valley that I could find, at half the price of the next-cheapest hotel. The decorations were unique and very refreshing from the normal motel decor. The room's shower, heater, fridge, microwave, all worked well - no... More

Excellent value, great location, clean, comfy rooms. This is a fairly old motor inn type facility, but it's been recently painted and the rooms are small but clean and all you really need. The manager Rika (we didn't meet her husband Charles who also helps manage the property) couldn't have been more friendly or helpful and she'll whip up some... More

This is my 6 or 7th stay at Aviva Inn. The Managers, Charles & Rika continue to knock it out of the ballpark. Breakfast spread is wonderful. They have the best guest service and all the staff is wonderful. Highly recommend Aviva Inn and only Aviva Inn, hands down.

The hotel rooma were very confy, and the location was great (tahoe city), near many restaurants and stores. The breakfast was the best. Felt like in home. Rika at front desk prepares the best waffles I have tried.
