“Home away from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

My hubby and I will definitely go back to this property. It was clean, comfortable, convenient to every place we wanted to go. The staff is warm and friendly and ready to help. We enjoyed having a kitchenette and a full sized refrigerator/freezer. Even had his and hers TVs! The price is worth every penny. We started out in a studio room, and found that we really needed better separation (he's an early riser, I'm the sleep-in type) and so we moved to a one-bedroom unit. Linda at the front desk made the switch absolutely painless. It was wonderful! We even had the grandkids over to watch the Macy's parade on TV. Room for everyone. We liked the living space and proximity to our daughter's home best. I wish there were a standard stove rather than a hot plate. There's just not enough room on the kitchen counter to use it effectively. But the microwave helps alot.

Room Tip: A studio is fine for one person, maybe two. If you move up to 1-bedroom, there's a huge differen...

Our first time staying here and we LOVE it! The staff is very friendly and made us feel valued as guests. The room was excellent - clean, comfortable and gorgeous. This will be our first pick the next time we visit Tahoe!!

This place is not a big place but definitely a very clean and fantastic customer service. It is within walking distances to shops and several casinos. The best was being able to get rooms that allowed pets. We were able to have family visit and bring their pets with them as well as our pets. The staff is friendly and always ready to serve their customers. Also, there is a sky resort within walking distance as well. Other sky resort are a short drive away.

Room Tip: If you have pets this is the place to go. There is an area in the back for dogs to use. The additi...

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We are conducting a "pet friendly" experiment here with a few of our rooms. So glad to hear that you and your family and pets were able to enjoy your stay with us. We do advise that guests hoping to bring a pet with them do call in advance to be sure we have a pet friendly room available for them. Hope you will all come again soon!

pleasantly surprised. Staff was great, always willing to go the extra mile. Room was very comfortable. Just off the main street but walking distance to everything. Enjoyed a fabulous week there and would not hesitate to go back.

Room Tip: ask for one of the refurbished rooms

Wonderful to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us! A booking tip for others, if you want to be sure of a remodeled room for your visit. When booking online, or with us directly select the "deluxe studio" option.

Everything about the Americana Village is great. The staff here are fantastic, nothing was too much trouble and every request was dealt with immediately. The studio unit was compact but had everything we needed. We attended the weekly BBQ, good value for money and nice to meet some of the other guests. The grounds are lovely, the pool area is very pleasant and hardly used whilst we were there so we felt as though we had our own private pool. There is a laundry for guests to use, DVDs and books available to borrow and free coffee and popcorn always available in the Lobby.
The location is very good with an easy walk to Heavenly and over the state border into Nevada. We definitely hope to be back next year.

We stayed here for one week in middle September --it was great. The location is just inside CA., so you do not have the gambling crowd but the casinos are just a few minute drive or 15 to 20 minute walk away. The staff was wonderful. We had a large 1bedroom with a full kitchen. This was a timeshare exchange but not once were we approached to attend a timeshare presentation! I really hate when you are bothered many times to attend a presentation. The cleaning staff came in each day to empty the trash, exchange towels and make the bed--and they were extremely nice. The location to explore the entire lake is great and the entire area is beautiful and accessed easily. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Get a one bedroom if you can!

The location was very convenient for our week of exploring the Tahoe area. The staff had sets of golf clubs for free use, so we were able to play 2 rounds of golf for a very reasonable $20 each. The unit itself is small, and fine for a couple or maybe with one small child, but I could not see 4 adults sharing this unit. The grounds were spotless and the activities staff keeps you busy with activities, after all, this is a timeshare resort. The heated pool, hot tub and sauna were nice to have. It was quite warm while there Labor Day week, so not having air conditioning was a bit of an inconvenience during the day, while nights were quite comfortable. Even the remodeled units do not have air conditioning, but do ask for them over the not yet remodeled units that have pink carpets and bed spreads! The Labor Day fireworks went off even with the rim fire still producing smoke in the mornings.

Room Tip: Ask for a remodeled unit away from the street. Be sure to attend the tied died T-Shirt making at th...
