“You get what you pay for!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

We stayed for 2 nights. Yes, it's cheap but you get what you pay for! Previous posters said the rooms were clean. I disagree. The carpeting was filthy. The balcony had beer cans/bottles from previous guests. The A/C is pretty loud that we wanted it off and have the balcony door open to let the cool air in at night but since the balcony screen door had holes and the latch to keep it locked was broken, we were unable to do so. The whole place needs updating. By the way, parking is pretty tight. Guests come with kayaks and water gear and bigger vehicles so be careful and also if you have a rental car, make sure it doesn't get scratched. I saw a car almost hit another backing out of the parking spaces. The Wi-Fi has very poor connection. Breakfast is minimal. The receptionists were nice and the laundry is free, but even their laundry room which doubles as an exercise room needs cleaning!

Also, we walked around the neighborhood after going to the beach with the beach passes the motel provided us and noticed that there were "dead" motels within the area and had become transient housing (at the corner, next to the Rodeway Inn and near Harrah's), meaning interesting characters, if you get my drift.

Travelling on a budget, we booked at this hotel because of the good reviews I got from tripadvisor. I got a good deal from booking online for $50/ night + tax for 3 nights with 2 double beds. Cant beat this price! No other hotels and inns offered this great value! That is because I started booking on a sunday until tuesday, few days before the busy 4th of july weekend. Weekdays are cheaper that is, but thats how we chose to book , specially that we are travelling on a budget.
Anyhow, we were impressed by the cleanliness of the hotel. The room was nice, nothing fancy, but decent. Our room was a connnecting room so our first night, we can hear the conversations from the other room. But thats fine with us, cant complain about it because we have young kids and its hard to control my voice so as not to bother other rooms. Also they have a free laundry room that you can use, just pay a dollar for the soap or you can bring your own. The complimentary breakfast was good, but dont expect a hot buffet style. They have a pool, but we didnt use it. They offer a free private beach access close to the inn which is a plus. We have to pay $8 to access Pope Beach. They have ice machine, vending machine and a corner outside to vacuum your car. One thing they dont have an iron for clothes so i have to borrow at the front desk. The staff are nice and I think that was the hotel manager visible on the area attending to the travellers needs. And I like that the hotel manager comments on every reviews , whether good or bad reviews. Good customer service and customer satisfaction is the key!

My family and I are staying here now. They even give you access to a private beach. I would highly recommend that anyone shopping for rooms in the South Lake Tahoe to give Americas Best Value a go. The pool is awesome. And they got a full spa, and laundry room. And I'm trying hop in this pool now.

My sister and I stayed here June 11-June 13. I was very impressed by how clean it was and you can see a conscious effort made to keep the hotel and grounds clean and quiet. The beds were very comfortable. Its a great location too, everything is within walking distance - the lake, the shops and restaurants, and the casinos. I would definitely stay here again. We really appreciated how quiet it was.

Room Tip: Our room was across the street from the office, we liked it over there.

This inn is an older property, but it does not advertise itself as being fancy. Even though rooms are not totally updated, I was very impressed with the rooms overall and the cleanliness of the entire property. Staff was walking around the entire time maintaining the grounds. The service at the front desk was excellent, helpful and provided free passes to the local beach, which is walking distance. I was here with my two children and they totally enjoyed the swimming pool, the hot tub and the continental breakfast. The location is close to almost every popular attraction in Tahoe. The price was about half the cost of any of the other hotels. This property fit our needs just perfect, as we were looking for a place close to the beach areas and that was family friendly. I would definitely stay here again.

Mgr. James was everywhere making sure the grounds & rooms were ready for guests. Reasonably priced, clean, flat screen TV's, pool, spa, & sauna on site. I utilized the area for washing my windshield, and filling up a slow leaking tire, there was even a car vacuum available. We had hot coffee & waffles for breakfast. Beach access is free & only a short walk. Two thumbs up for Americas Best Value Inn - South Lake Tahoe.

Room Tip: Our room was large, clean & quiet.

Excellent value! Both the evening and morning staff were very friendly and helpful. The evening guy even offered to help us carry our luggage. The room was clean and and the bed was comfortable. It had a television, small refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker and coffee, etc. There is even a free setup to vacuum your car, and add air to the tires and water to the radiator. The free wifi worked well and they had a better than average continental breakfast. My only small quibble was that the door lock was an old fashioned metal key rather than the electronic lock with changeable cards.
