From the second I checked in (late) with Rika at the front desk, I had a great stay! It's a motel,... See full review

Situated in the charming community of Tahoe City and with views of beautiful Lake Tahoe, the Aviva Inn is the perfect spot for easy access to outdoor activities, the Tahoe Gal cruise, and many local shops and restaurants. The comfortable non-smoking rooms have vaulted ceilings, refrigerators, microwaves and coffeemakers. A small breakfast buffet is offered each morning complete with freshly made waffles! The Aviva is a great value in North Tahoe.

Good value

It was across the street from the water and easy to access all local areas. Dining and shopping were easily arrived at

Should have picked up on the clues.

It started off with check in. We always ask if there are issues can we call the front desk. I should have picked up on the silence and half smile response we received. We got to our room, it was remodeled and fairly comfortable with all the amenities such as microwave and a mini fridge. However there wasn't enough outlets so to use anything, including lights, it required unplugging and jockeying around everything. It began around 11 pm what sounded like something clawing under the deck. When we tried to call the front desk we received a busy signal. The clawing sound continued all night with no luck of reaching the front desk. While it is understandable that wild animals are going to be par forthe course thelack of ability to reach anyone was not ok. In the morning the front desk was rude and basicallysaid they don't answer the phone at night. So if there is an issue or emergency you are on your own. Safety is always an issue and so I would not return.

Woffices & Lipstick on a Pig

I don't know why they don't turn the room behind the reception office into a breakfast room. It was ridiculous to try to have more than two people eating breakfast at one time in the office. We called them "woffices"--waffles in the office. The granola was good, though. The location was great, the room decor was updated and nice, but you could just tell it was a run-down place not too long ago. Bedspread had a stain on it and bathroom cabinet had some sort of wood erosion going on. Receptionist was friendly. I would recommend this MOTEL to a friend who just wanted a cheap place to stay and didn't care about anything else.

We will be back

The hotel is right in Tahoe city so walking distance to restaurants, shops and beach. The building is older. Some would say dated, but the rooms were clean. Pool was closed for some reason. Rica was great. Recommended a wonderful restaurant and cooked breakfast in the morning. Overall the place has a relaxed feel that we appreciated on out girls getaway.

Disappointed

The room was dimly lit to cover the fact that it was not clean. The linens were dingy. The lock in the bathroom window was broken so the room was not secure. This IS NOT a 3 star hotel. I suppose if 4 college buddies were using the room only to sleep it would be acceptable. My wife and I were very disappointed as were our friends who chose another hotel when they walked into their room. I would not return here.

Great location, affordable, marginal room

Hard to get a better price this close to the lake. A decent continental breakfast, fantastic view if you get a lakeview room, but the rooms were pretty mediocre. The newer linens are nice, but the furniture is very old and beat up, all the toys and game tables in the game room were broken or missing pieces, water stains on the wall of our room, and one wall they didn't paint. The bathroom was small, but it had a clean, roomy, warm shower. I would still recommend the hotel and it is a great value, but set your expectations pretty low for amenities.

A short walk down to the marina on smooth, paved trails.

Worst place on earth!

We arrived and was very displeased with the outside. It was shabby, off putting, old and run-down! I decided to see the room before checking in. The pillows were dirty, bed had stains on the top sheet covers, the breakfast area was in check-out area which had a toaster and a waffle maker only room for two people at a time, if no-one was checking in, and the bathroom had a spot of blood on floor. I told the clerk that this place is very dirty and I cannot stay here. I asked to speak to manager and she was not there. Once manager was reached she wouldnt talk with me. No money back, Wow!
