“AMAZING Value & Superior Service!!!”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

Honestly, I booked the hotel because the reviews were good and the value was great, but was pleasantly surprised to find such a gem! We were greeted by Jessica's friendly and accommodating smile and the rest of the stay just got better! It was only a two block walk from the Stateline Casino Center, so we were able to walk to the concert we were there for at the Montbleu. And when our snowshoeing trip got rained out, we were able to relax in their spa & sauna! Deanna (the night manager) was also so helpful and kind during our visit, and replenished the beautiful breakfast spread for all the weary travelers! The rooms are clean and simple, and the hotel provides everything you should need (and if they don't have it, then walk or drive two blocks and you'll find it!) It's sort of quiet and tucked away from the loud nightlife scene of Casino Center, but close enough to partake, then go have a good night's rest! My husband & I feel like we found a hidden secret and can't wait to come back for another stay! You rarely find employees with a sense of pride for their job and workplace, and you just don't find customer service like this anymore! They really made you feel like a special guest! It might not be a 5 star hotel, but they make it feel pretty darn close! Thanks and keep up the good work!

Room Tip: We upgraded to a suite and had a lovely kitchenette. It was a nominal fee to upgrade for a lot more...

This place was great from the get. I called in to ask about a room for the night, and Jessica helped me out with every question I had. She knew her stuff and made us feel very welcome when we finally came by. The price was perfect for the night and the accommodations were great as well. I'll definitely be coming back soon.

My girlfriend and I go up to Tahoe from Sacramento all the time. We wanted to finally stay at the Casino for the weekend and WOW was that a nightmare! After being charged for more than we agreed to and having to move rooms in the middle of our vacation we decided to stay our second night very close to the Casinos and save money. Well we have stayed at the Americas Best Value before and had a wonderful stay, so we decided to stay here again. Once again, we had a incredible stay. We payed a third of the Casinos hotels price and stayed in a room just as good as the casino but also cleaner. The walk to the casino was actually shorter than if we parked our car in the closest casino garage. The service and management was very hospitable and welcoming. Unlike the Casino, Americas Best did not charge a $20 internet fee and also had a complimentary breakfast in the morning that was perfect for the hangover. Americas Best Value was also close to Heavenly and the beach. PERFECT winter wonderland get away and what a relief! Thanks ABV!

Room Tip: If your a couple get the hot tub suite!

Thank you for taking the time to posts your review. It's pleasing to hear that our guests have taken notice of our value. Natually, I would not compare our hotel to our local highrise casinos, but I will say, for a fraction of the cost you can stay very close to the casino action in pleasant accommodations for much less. Our convenenient location, friendly service, free wifi, free continental breakfast, free laundry/fitness room, whirlpool spa, sauna, seasonal heated swimming pool and free private beach passes our many of the items we offer.

Thank you again and we look forward to your future visits.

I had stayed in this hotel in August 2012. The experience then was much better. For starters, the price listed on Tripadvisor.com for ABVI is $34. When you are directed to their page, the price miraculously jumps up to $39.95. This is for the worst room. You have no option to select a better priced room for the 1-Queen sized bed category. When we went for breakfast, we were told that they were out of bowls since a long time and the bowls would be delivered but after the breakfast time. We were asked to eat the oatmeal in cups meant for drinking water. I took pictures of the oatmeal being poured into a cup for the Tripadvisor website, and lo and behold a large box of the bowls were suddenly found by them. They lost their reputation for being America's ""Best"" Value Inn. They also lost a returning customer for ever.

Thank you for your online review. It's not often that supplies run short or even out in our business but it may happen. Sometimes thrifty hotel guests may take a stack or two bowls, plates, plastic flatware, coffee cups or anything else we leave out. We may not notice in time to avoid another guest being inconvenienced. I'm certian all of us have had a similiar experience where something normally offered at a particular business happens to be out. Please don't let something like that negatively effect your stay. I can assure you it was not deliberate or personal. Since you did not mention our excellent location, our comfortable guest rooms, our free wifi, free beach passes, free laundry and fitness rooms then I assume you found those areas satisfactory for your low rate of $39.95/night in Lake Tahoe... lol.

Pros: Good location for skiing. Continental breakfast a bit better than most in this classification.
Cons: Locked phone - could not make local calls, no coffee maker (or fridge or microwave), very hard lumpy queen bed, wifi virtually unusable on Sat night, only slightly better on Sun, grungy room, main wall sockets so worn they would not hold any phone charger plugs, broken bed light. We stayed in Building A.

Room Tip: Ours was Building "A", perhaps the other buildings are better?

Giving this hotel 2 stars is probably generous, but it is an excellent budget choice. We stayed in a 2 king bed unit that was large and clean. Everything worked. The heating was very good and lots of hot water. The location is good in the stateline area. The beds were in very good shape. This is a budget hotel, so the towels are basic and the wi-fi internet was marginal on weekdays and worthless on weekends. Plan to use your 3G phone. The continental breakfast is considered minimal when being generous. It consists of toast , frozen waffles, or instant oatmeal and a couple of pieces of fruit. On the other hand, there is an area in the parking lot where you can wash, vacuum, and add air to the tires of your car. In all my travels, I have never seen this offering. The bottom line, an excellent budget choice.

A few friends and I recently stayed at Americas Best Value Inn to celebrate New Years in Lake Tahoe and found a great place to stay every time we come to Tahoe. Not only was the room clean and comfortable but completely affordable as well. Especially during the holidays when most hotels spoke their prices up to ridiculous amounts ABVI was still surprisingly affordable even during holiday nights. On top of great rooms and prices the hotel provides continental breakfast from 8-10am and is conviently close to the casinos and Heavenly resort. Every night my friends and I enjoyed a few drinks and we're able to walk back to the hotel in just a few minutes . Over all this hotel has great customer service and compared to other hotels close by it is the best place to stay for an incredibly reasonable price. My suggest for hotels in South Lake Tahoe is definitely Americas Best Value Inn!
