We were going to stay at the Marriot in Lake Tahoe; however, they wouldn't allow us to check in until 4:00 pm and we had a tired 2 year old who needed a nap. We ended up staying at the Americana Village instead for 3 days and were happy we did. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Our room had a separate living room, it stepped up into an area with a queen size bed and a full size dining table, then you stepped down in a kitchenette. The kichen was fully equiped with everything except a stove (however, they had a two burner cooker.) The shower was very large with two shower heads. They have free movie check-out, books to borrow, bikes to borrow, free of charge. In the morning they offer coffee, apple juice, banana's and donuts. During the day they have free popcorn. Our room was clean and cozy. If you need anything, the staff are there to assist immediately. The pool was heated and clean, they have a hot tub too but I didn't check that out. Great place to stay!
