I was in Montgomery for 9 days on business and needed to save some money. This hotel did that. I can't rave about anything in particular but it had all the basics I needed (micro, refrigerator) and there was coffee every time I went looking. The room was clean, rates were great and the service worked for me.

This hotel is conveniently located close to Maxwell Air Force base, which is why I choose it. It is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The first room I was given smelled of mold, the a/c was leaking into the room and the floor was soaked. We got a new room. This room smelled as well. The rug... More

I have been a lot of places in my days and this place topped it as the worst. The heat did not work, the phones were removed, windows broken. I ended up leaving.....and will never, ever return.

Hotels I had picked out for our one night stay were no longer in existence. Since we were tired, we pulled into the America's Best Value Inn. We wanted a ground floor, non-smoking room - none were available. We decided to take a smoking room - surprisingly, it didn't smell. Trying to enter our room, we had a problem with... More

I stayed at this America's Best Value Inn twice this month and probably wouldn't stay there again. The front desk staff were friendly and welcoming and I was pleased with my interactions with them. I was a little amused when I had to sign an affidavit something to the effect that I wasn't a drug dealer and could expect the... More

This was the most filthy, disgusting place I can ever remember staying in. I made the mistake of thinking the reviews about America's Best Inn (down the road) were meant for America's Best Value Inn (where I actually stayed). I should have realized what I was in for at the front desk, where the fumes of industrial-strength cleaning solvents (?... More

I saw the reviews here were both good and bad, so I figured I'd give it a shot since I'm a college student travelling on a budget. Bad idea. I'm not sure how there are reviews stating that improvements have been made, but I just stayed there a few days ago and without bias, here are the facts: walked into... More

I've stayed at this property on and off with my family a few times. It looks like many improvments have/are being made. Looks like there is new furniture and better rooms. Bathrooms look new, and the place looks like it is shaping up. Not sure if it is new management, but everyone is quite friendly.
