Old and run down. Rooms were very hot as air conditioners were not on so it was a long time before room cooled down. The hotel smelled like smoke even though my room was non smoking. The breakfast was cereal only that had ants crawling all over it and they had ran out of milk. It was disgusting!!

The bed was comfortable and the bathroom clean. Those are the nicest things I can say. The lobby smells of stale cigarettes, the clerk hasn't seen a razor in days. The pretty pool you see in the pictures is empty and covered with a blue tarp. There were cobwebs with dead spiders in the corners of the room. Our dresser... More

This hotel needs work. There's roaches (dead and alive) all over the place. The beds are pretty comfortable, but the atmosphere is nasty. It smells like smoke everywhere. The service isn't too good either. When the remote in our room stopped working, I had to go to the desk about three times. And when I asked for a TV guide,... More

I recently booked a trip to Canton and made reservations through "Priceline" to stay at the Americas Best Value Inn in Athens, TX. Not only would I warn people about staying here, I will also encourage you to never book through Priceline. I believe they have the same values and are both only out for money it is no longer...

This was the dirtest, most damaged hotel I have ever stayed in! Non-flushing commodes, dirty sheets, holes in the wall and floors! People given the keys to rooms we had not checked out of yet.
