The location was great, although the rooms were dated. The room was clean in general but had a musty smell & the carpet, upholstery, etc. did not seem so clean. We have a 1 year old and her hands & legs were pretty dirty after crawling around on the floor in the room. The breakfast was small- juice & some...

This is an old hotel; however, it is clean and the beds are very comfortable. You can walk to Lake Tahoe, across the street and to all stores and restaurants easily in Tahoe City. The front side hotel rooms overlook the parking lot with glimpses through the trees of the lake. The back side rooms overlook a small golf course...

This hotel is very reasonably priced clean lodging with a decent location in Tahoe City. It's more of an old fashioned motel almost like being in a time-warp back to the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s. The rooms are clean and reasonably sized. Best rooms are in back overlooking a golf course. Front rooms overlook a hot (in summer) parking lot....

America's Best Value Inn at Tahoe City is probably the best buy for the buck. At first glance, the exterior looks like a two star motel, but once inside the room you will be surprised. The rooms are about what one would expect in a three or maybe even a four star facility. It is a motel, so there is...

This hotel is real bargain. The room was clean and quiet with basic amenities, however there was no fridge or microwave. Breakfast was packaged pastries, coffee, and fruit. Out behind the hotel is a golf course, which means a quiet area. There are plenty of dining establishments and shops within easy walking distance, plus a nice city park across the...

Nice hotel, it is in a fantastic locations, Tahoe City is a lovely place. Not far from the water, and close to everything. Now the negatives, the breakfast is indeed very basic, just a coffee and a cake really; and the bathroom's decor could be refreshed a bit as it was looking a bit shabby, but at least it was...

Stayed here in April. There is no real view of the lake. It is across the street and there are buildings on the other side of the street. Price was reasonable. Room was clean. Unfortunately, there were a lot of workers (road repair?) staying there and their trucks take up the whole parking lot. One of these workers came out...

4/2014- We were going to Tahoe for skiing the last 2 days of the season 2014, and wanted a place to stay that was budget minded, and convenient to Squaw and Alpine. Tahoe City was our choice. I checked out several properties online and this was offering the best price for TC. One casino and a hotel at South Shore...

I actually did NOT stay at this hotel, but with friends in same town. Keep in mind if you reserve on their website or thru others like Bookings.com or Hotels.com you may have to cancel by 6pm two days ahead of time when your plans change. I got annoyed.

I'm so sorry you had difficulty cancelling your reservation but happy that the desk person was finally able to do it with your satisfaction. We need the two day cancellation policy because not everyone is kind enough to cancel in time for us to give the room to another party. Thank you for your comments and I hope you will...

We stayed here the end of October for a cycling trip and it was great! So, the hotel isn't too much to write about, but the price and location were perfect! It's a no-frills, older room in need of a remodel, but everything was clean and functioning. There is a small, free breakfast offered with coffee, fruit, and danishes. There...
