They do try though--there was a wall mounted magnifying mirror in bathroom. Clean, smaller TV. Very convenient... More

We stayed 3 nights this October for a family wedding. We had 2 rooms for our family of 4 adults and 2 children. The hotel was perfect for our needs. Everyone from check in to housekeeping to check out was friendly and efficient. Because it is now fall, the pool was closed, but we enjoyed the lake view jacuzzi which... More

Stayed at the ABVI on a midweek Wednesday night the middle of October. Room price including tax was $76.03. My room faced the golf course behind the Inn and had a balcony that was shared with all the rooms on the second floor (basically like a long hallway). It had a very comfortable king size bed, a good sized flat... More

We decided to stay in Tahoe City on our trip to Tahoe because we liked that it was quieter than South Lake Tahoe. We chose America's Best Value Inn because it had a great AAA rating and the prices were very good. We had a room with a king bed for $125 per night. We were there in September of... More

Quick check in and a ground floor room near reception. Room was dated though as was the bathroom, but everything worked fine. Good location and easy to walk into Heavenly. Not expensive though (approximately $69) and that included a buffet breakfast of cereals, toast, juice and coffee. If you are visiting the area, this is a good place to stay... More

I went to Tahoe for a wedding and after spending enough money to get there via plane and shuttle, I was looking for some place inexpensive and convenient. ABVI fit the bill. Paid $130/night and the rooms are not much to look at but they are spacious and the bed is surprisingly comfy. The hotel is also quiet. Central location... More

Excellent bed, clean and comfortable rooms. Quiet location. Seasonal pool, all-year outdoor hot-tub. Conveniently located for the lake shore, local shops and restaurants, easy parking on site. The complementary breakfast is always on time, wrapped pastry (which they store on a fridge to keep them fresh) oranges and bananas, a good selection of coffee and teas. Excellent management and staff... More

Small, but clean rooms overlooking golf course with back door opening onto a porch with chairs. Nice spot to sit and have morning coffee watching the Canada Geese graze as the sun comes peeking over the mountains. Clean pool, awesome 2nd story spa overlooking Commons Beach. Be sure to ask for a room with a refrigerator if you need one... More

Bed was the best we have had from an economy hotel. Pillows not as soft as I would like, but had coffee machine, and could not hear traffic from our room, Great spa, and location in town perfect, would stay again

I have stayed at the Americas Best Value Inn 2 times and will stay there again. Close to restaurants and across the street from the lake. You could not ask for a better location. Reasonable priced, not a fancy Inn but clean and comfortable.
