This is a small inn located right off interstate. Although the exterior of the building is old, the rooms are very nice and clean. The room had everything required for your stay including microwave, fridge and a portable coffee maker. Being a bay area resident, I hesitated staying in Richmond, owing to its bad reputation. This motel, however, is in... More

The area of the hotel seems not to be the best in SF. Room had some disgusting off odors. Rooms has to be renovated. Got the impression that some other obsucre guests are staying there for a longer time.

HI Mark, Thanks for taking time to write a review. We are located close to Chevron refinery and have 24 contractors working at Chevron. The contractors typically stay with us for 4 to 6 weeks. With regards to the room odor, we are unable to locate which room you stayed in. We would love an opportunity to research and respond.... More

I apologize for your poor experience and for not providing you a choice of a Smoking or Non Smoking room. We place all our guests that reserve rooms online into a Non Smoking room unless the guest requests a smoking room upon check in. The room you were provided does have a wooden box frame. We had experimented with a... More

America's Best Value Inn, Richmond offers very good accommodations for a fair price. You'll find the location convenient, situated close to Solano Ave. and the 880. The rooms include a flat screen TV, mini fridge, and a hvac unit. The rooms are well insulated and have double paned windows.

For the price we paid, the facilities are a far cry from the photos. The office and rooms (we booked 2) are run down; dingy and poorly maintained, with a hole on the bathroom door and one on the wall where someone or something hit them. The bathroom tiles are cracked, the water closet makes the occasional gush, and the... More

Thanks for your feedback. After examining the room, we did notice that the bathroom door has a crack that appears if it had been punched really hard and did see two cracked tiles. We have replaced the tiles and the door. The air condition unit will be serviced and/or changed if the noise issue cannot be resolved. The breakfast area... More

We were a little skeptical of the hotel based on previous reviews. Our experience on the 2 nights we stayed was different. We were surprised at the cleanliness of the room and amenities for the...

Sure, if it's sleep in your car or here, maybe give this place a shot, but don't leave the room, especially if your coming back late on a weekend. Having spent one of two nights I had confirmed, I returned late on a Saturday night to a full hotel. When I went to the front desk to ask for a... More
