“Updated & Well Kept”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

We had a very pleasant stay in our newly remodeled jr suite. The property is older, but the units are all being remodeled to upscale standards, and the grounds are well maintained. They make good use of all available space inside the units and outside. There were daily activities and gatherings, and the location is great - less than a mile from Stateline. Americana Village stands out among other Lake Tahoe properties of this type and vintage. This is not a high end luxury hotel, but it is at the top of its class.

Room Tip: Ask for a remodeled unit, although all will be remodeled soon.

How wonderful that you got to experience one of our newly renovated units, we can hardly wait until we have them all completely finished. They are something to be proud of. Well, we are proud of the whole property actually, even the older units still show the pride our staff has in taking care of their property. As you mentioned, the whole property is something special here in town. Thank you for taking the time to share with others

Very nice quiet relaxing location. Close to all attractions, you can walk to the lake! Clean rooms, adequately equipped with hot plate, microwave, dishes, etc., although eating out on vacation is a real treat. Hotel provides a small early morning breakfast of donuts, fruit and coffee, and juice. If you want more you can cook your own or go into town. Office has a decent library of movies you can borrow. Very nice people eager to make sure your stay is comfortable. I will stay here again and again.

Room Tip: Americana is always updating their rooms, so the rooms are always in great condition and comfortable...

This place has exceeded our expectations.
The room we have is one of the older type, (they are currently remodelling to a new standard) but despite being in the older room we have found it perfectly adequate for all of our needs.
The room is spacious and the bed comfortable, the kitchenette is well equipped and the room was immaculately clean when we arrived.
The cleaning teams are courteous and helpful as are the front desk guys and gals who can't do enough to help.
The only criticism is that the walls between rooms are very thin and if your neighbours don't keep it down you can hear everything they are saying and doing.
Despite this though we wouldn't hesitate t come back.

Rich, Thank you for taking the time to let others know that you enjoyed your stay here. I am sorry to hear that you had noisy neighbors, that certainly is not the norm here! If that should ever happen to you again, just give the front desk a call and we will be more than happy to help get that resolved. Customer Service is what we are all about, and we do strive to be sure all our guests are comfortable. We will be looking forward to your next visit.

I love to stay here. The staff is so kind and helpful. The rooms are comfortable and very clean. It really feels like a home away from home. I stayed last month,this month and will return for a week in June. You are so close to everthing and walking distance to stores and casinos. The units are beautiful. They are dog friendly in some units.

Room Tip: The new rooms are great but all the rooms are fine.

We were at South Lake Tahoe in second week of May, 2013. Even with nothing really to do there but hike, because most of the summer outdoor activities are closed till end of May.

The Americana Village staffs were very pleasant and helpful. They had guided us to some local hiking trails not listed on the usual hiking trail maps.

Now the studio room we stayed in was very cozy. It was just remodeled. They were still remodeling other rooms too, but kept the noise and the dirt to very, very minimum. The bath tub was not one of those cheap plastic tub you find even in expensive hotels. It was actually a whirlpool type bath tub. Granted our plug for the tub didn't work, but it was okay, we take showers, not baths anyway. The whole design of the bathroom was great, someone took some time to thought up the design and not just slab on the tiles to rent out the room. The towels were clean and soft too. The fold out air mattress bed from the couch was a plus, felt firm and not like the typical couch bed.

The cleaning crews were very friendly and fast at cleaning the room. Granted they only clean the room and change towels and bed sheet on Wed and Fri to save the water, but it was fine, the bed sheet was clean smelling and actually soft, not starchy like other hotels. The most amazing thing was the hot water. It comes hot in less than five seconds. I don't even get that at home and I have a tankless water heater. Bedroom were well designed for a small space. Two big screen TV in the room.

Unlike some "apartment like" motels, I don't hear the neighbors on the side or upstairs. The whole place was quiet.

The breakfast need some improvement, but it was not that important. Donuts as breakfast is not very healthy. But they do have hard boiled egg and fruits.

This is the best inn I've stayed in. The kitchenette was very nice too. The refrigerator was large enough, not your bar sized fridge. I would definitely stay there again in Tahoe.

We had stayed at the Horizon resorts a few weeks before and I was determined never to go there again and find a better place. And with Americana Village, we found the perfect location for our stay. The rooms all have a refrigerator, microwave, plates, hot plate, you name it. The kitchenette is perfect specially for a family like us who have a kid who is a picky eater! The different levels in the room with the living area and bedroom was great as we had 3 children in our party and while the kids watch TV, the adults hung out in the bedroom area which also has a dining table. The reception has free coffee and while the breakfast is simple with donuts and fruit, it was enough for us to get our day going! Highly recommend this place as the rooms are clean, comfortable and perfect for anyone but specially with kids!

We do love families here at the Americana, and believe we have a lot to offer them as you have so kindly pointed out. We are looking forward to adding even more, new activities to our schedule in the very near future so be sure to give them a look! The days are warming, the bikes will be coming out soon, the new bike path by the lake should be so fun to try. We hope you and your family will be coming up to South Lake Tahoe again soon.

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!
