“Wonderful Stay at Americas Best Value Inn-Tahoe City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

My Mom and I just visited Lake Tahoe and stayed at Americas Best Value Inn--Tahoe City. We couldn't have been more pleased. Each and every member of the staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating; the rooms were nice and clean; and the hotel was close to some wonderful restaurants and shopping. We would both recommend this hotel, and we will definitely visit it in the very near future.

Room Tip: Being that my Mom is older, we required a room on the bottom with two queen beds. We stayed in room...

A group of 8 of us stayed in Superior Queen rooms and found the Inn to be comfortable, very clean, and with good service. The location is perfect for exploring the north and west sides of Lake Tahoe. A special thanks to the reservation personnel who helped me coordinate our rooms. Michelle (Yuba City, CA)

Room Tip: The superior rooms with fridges and microwaves are worth the extra cost.

For the price (approx $90), this was an excellent deal for our spur of the moment vacation in Tahoe City. We originally planned to stay 2 nights, but ended up staying 4 nights, Monday through Thursday. Our room was on the second floor with a nice view of the Golf Course (a source of entertainment early each morning). There is a common balcony through a back door in the room. The room and bathroom were much smaller then newer chain hotels but we quickly adjusted. The architecture is from the sixties so it was nicely quaint. Our room was very clean and fresh every day. The location cannot be beat, across the street from Common's beach. There is a small breakfast provided (coffee, Juice, plastic wrapped danish), just what you would expect for the price, however, the coffee was excellent. Only small cups are provided, so bring your personal mug to get the required jolt in the mornings. There is an outdoor pool, again it is small in accordance with the architecture, and I believe there is a spa (jacuzzi) over the office area (we did not use). You cannot beat the location and the cleanliness of this motel.

Room Tip: Ask for a second level room facing the gold course. There is a common balcony and a good place for...

The hotel was located in a good place on the main drag. We were able to walk across the street to the lake and take a nice stroll down the paths. The room was neat and clean. For information, traffic was very bad on a Tuesday coming into Tahoe City. This is a very congested area even on a weekday. It would probably be extremely congested on the weekends.

We were upstairs facing the lake.
The place was clean, quiet, and in a great location to walk across the street to the beach or do some window shopping. Oh, great parking as well!!!

We were a little disappointed in the breakfast, but what can you really expect for this amazing price! They did have very good coffee, juice, and danish.

Room Tip: Ask to face the golf course! It's really nice :)

The summer special was a good price and we also got coupons for restaurants close by for 10-15% off. Location is perfect, we did not move our car for 2 days. The staff was friendly. The place is worn. The shower and beds were comfortable. There were four of us and we needed a roll away and they fit it in the room and did not charge us, which other motels would not do. I would not stay here on a very hot day as they have window AC units and they are noisy. Our room faced the golf course and was very quiet, we did not need to run the AC. I would stay here again, the price is right.

Room Tip: Pick a room facing the golf course.

Good:
Super location at the hwy 89 junction, were able to bike and walk everywhere. Right across from the beach/park.
The staff was nice and helpful.
The pool and spa was enjoyable and clean.
The rooms were clean, the a/c worked wonderfully and the mattress was newer (room 228).

The Bad/Ugly:
No bad, just ugly.
The exterior is worn (but that's typical for the snow/sun cycle location).
The rooms need updating (the 80's live on).

Would stay again. Got great $$ deal.

Thank you for such a positive review of our motel! I was happy to see that your "Good" reviews far outweighed the "Bad" or "ugly". Yes, the exterior of our motel does show age because it was built to open for the 1960 Squaw Valley Olympics. As you drove around the lake, you probably noticed that most of the motels are even older than ours. The TRPA (Tahoe Regional Planning Agency) has restricted all building of new hotels or motels for over 30 years to stop the deterioration of our beautiful Lake Tahoe. We are in the "Activity Center" of the lake and most Tahoe City businesses prefer to keep the rustic look and not become another overbuilt South Tahoe. You indicated that our location in the center of town, between the lake and the golf course was "super" and that you "would stay again". We hope you do return soon!
