Recent guest reviews

Hotel was way better then it's overall rating. Will definitely stay here again!

Friendly staff, clean room, great amenities, walking distance to great attractions, very affordable, and also it was very safe! Highly recommend!

Great view of golf course and forest from room. Walking distance to lake and shopping and dining

Quick check in friendly staff. Bed was comfortable. Firming could be a little smaller and maybe less not much room to move around. But very clean except for the air freshener was a little overpowering. But other then that I would definitely stay again.

I was slightly disappointed in the overall experience as it began with the fact my reservation was confirmed but the motel did not have record of it, they had to contact the company leaving me waiting in the lobby for one hour until they could verify my reservation was valid!.. The owner / manager was apologetic for the delay. The room was as good as could be expected for the age and location but I found it cramped and a bit stuffy as the ac unit seemed not to function after 9:00 pm. This experience was not to satisfactory overall, but I made the most of it and will probably look for a newer establishment nest time..

Staying in this hotel was a nightmare. I booked for 6 people and we got two queen beds.

Exactly meet my expectation. Was happy to stay there.

It is a nice stay for one night at Lake Tahoe. Good location, lake is on the other side of the road and dining in walking distance. Worth its value. But breakfast is too simple.

The room was warm and clean. Shower was warm. The hotel is close to a lot of restaurants. You get discount for some of the restaurants for staying at this hotel. This is the second time we stayed at this hotel. We had very positive experience both times. The staff at the front desk is very friendly and helpful. The only thing that can be improved is the breakfast, which currently is just packaged bakery goods and beverages. Still, not a reason to subtract one star.

The ABVI has a great location in Tahoe City. There are plenty of restaurants, pubs, and markets in wakling distance. The room was clean and average for the price. Nothing spectacular but for $91/ngt I wasn't expecting the Ritz. Since most of today's technology needs charging these days, it would be nice to have a bank or at least an outlet available for charging my phone, computer, Go-Pro, and camera batteriies. The only outlet available was in the bathroom. This seems to be the case in many older motels. I skied at Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows. It was a short drive to both.

Room was ok, facing back of property overlooking golf course. Clean, comfortable bed, rather small bathroom but ok with small shower stall. Near hall icemaker so lots of noise when someone gets ice. Occasional noisy neighbors but not all night long. Overall an ok stay for 3 nights. Great location in central Tahoe City, walking distance to stores, restaurants, shops. No traffic noise and no loud parties.

Very comfortable and the staff was excellent. I would reccomend to all my friends.

A good hotel in a great location. The hotel itself is not something to write home about - the pool is in the middle of the parking lot, the windows open to a hallway instead of the outside air, and the rooms are on the small side, but you can't beat the location across the street from the Tahoe City lakefront public park and within a short walking distance of numerous restaurants and shops.

Older motel, well-maintained & staffed by friendly, helpful people. Across the street from beautiful lakeside city park with excellent walkways.

the location of this hotel is what saves if, right across from beautiful lake Tahoe. Waliking distance from various shops, restaurants etc. Bit aged, although clean and for the most part comfortable. Had my stay been longer I think it would have gotten to me more.

Nice motel, standard room. Had free wifi and a small "breakfast". We did book 3 adults (went up snowboarding) and got a room with one king bed. The staff was nice enough to give us 2 rollaway beds, no extra charge.

Right in the middle of Tahoe City. Walk to everything, ski shops,resturants,the lake and then only 5 miles to Squaw valley and Alpine Meadows. We got 10 feet of snow in 3 days. The best skiing in the world. They cleaned up all that snow each day as if it was only an inch. Rooms were clean and well appointed

bathroom is closet sized but functional. all good

Room was very clean and large enough with King size bed. Included a simple continental breakfast. Staff was friendly and efficient. Room cleans did excellent job. My room faced off road and was very quite.

Excellent value for money
