No Frills but Convenient, Clean and Friendly
Posted Feb 2, 2017
Had a couple of free days mid week and decided to do a quick ski trip to Northstar. I'd done this last year and stayed at America's Best Value Inn and enjoyed it. The Inn is about a half hour drive from Northstar conveniently located in Tahoe City across from the lake. It's within easy walking distance of the beach, a movie theater, several shops and restaurants and convenience stores. The rooms are fairly basic but clean and have coffee makers, extra pillows and towels and nice TVs. My room was on the ground floor w/ a small private patio and view onto the adjacent meadow. Unlike last year's visit, there were several feet of snow on the meadow and the view was of a veritable winter wonderland. The desk staff couldn't have been any friendlier and Tom explained the procedures regarding parking, continental breakfast ("grab and go") and provided information about nearby restaurants that offer guests discounts. He highly recommended the hot tub, but I didn't get around to checking it out. The price was reasonable and I enjoyed a quiet and comfortable night's sleep.
