A bag containing very valuable materials (including my wallet) was stolen during my stay by someone reaching into the window of my room while I was on the bed in plain sight sleeping. No screen was available to add extra security. Strung-out people patrol the parking lot at all times of night. People not apparently associated with any room wander... More

We had a bad experience with our hotel dealer (hotwire), so what happened is that we arrived at the ABV in Merced at 9:30p and the room wasn't booked for us. Christina, the clerck, was extremely helpful to get us another hotel (hers was full), lending us her phone and everything. She was very patient with helping other (very unpleasant... More

I have stayed at ABVIs, so I know they are a pure economy chain. I selected this one in Merced as it was about 15 bucks a night cheaper than other similar-looking hotels in the area. Also several TA reviews indicated it was okay. PROs, a) Saved 15 bucks a night versus alternatives, b) Comfortable King bed, c) Breakfast included... More

I booked this motel for 7 nights prepaid thru a thrid party booking agency. The lobby is really nice upon arrival. The Desk Clerk was very nice as we were sooooooooooo tired after a 3000 mile Greyhound bus ride. The other reviews said bad area and unsafe. I find that incorrect. The area is fine and safe. No problem. The... More

One of the best values travelling Hwy 99. Great price for a big room (A/C, TV, WiFi, microwave and refrigerator included) opening to a well landscaped courtyard with a pool. The king size bed was very comfortable with extra pillows. Breakfast items included hot waffles, English muffins, fruit, cereal, juices and all the things you see at motels that are... More

For the less than $50 price tag, we didn't expect the hilton, and we didn't get it. What we got was a clean room. In addition, there was a decent, but not great continental breakfast and a pool we never used. We were just passing through Merced, and this was just the place we needed.

I booked my stay for two nights through an online third party and paid in advance. We arrived on time and confirmed the length of our stay upon checking in. When we got to our room the bathroom was filthy and there were giant black spots of mold on the ceiling above the bed near the closet area and also... More

One generally wants just to get a nights sleep and move on when staying at older hotels at this price point. I was very surprised to get friendly service and find that the room was in good shape and the pool and grounds kept up extremely well. Don't confuse this with 3 stars but the owners of this establishment clearly... More

I reserved a suite for four nights. It turned out to be a regular room with a bathtub that had jets in it. Unfortunately the tub jets had mold and yucky stuff growing in each one so was unusable. The microwave had parts missing and didn't work and the 'bath towels' are nothing more than oversized hand towels. I spoke... More

Despite the negative reviews below we had a fine experience with Americas Best Value Inn. For $55 a night we had 2 comfortable double beds and enjoyed use of the poolside area, with complimentary breakfast hat included MYO Waffles! The room was clean and comfortable the area is in the middle of no where with very few dining choices around.... More
