I stayed at Americas Best Value Inn Riverside for some Motorcycle riding at Adams Motorsports Park. For the type of hotel it is as well as the price I paid, I was pleasantly surprised. It's not the Ritz Carlton but it is clean, the rooms are updated, breakfast is included and there is plenty of parking. It seems to be... More

Very nice rooms, working AC, extremely friendly staff, plenty of parking. One block from the Fox Performing Arts Center. Three blocks from downtown, where there are cute shops and restaurants. Rooms are smaller, but great for a short stay. Continental breakfast includes delicious coffee, waffles, cereal, fruit, and yogurt.

It's a little more worn around the edges than it used to be, but still a good place to stay and well priced. I've noticed some of the rooms are a little bigger than others, particularly in the bathroom. The last room I stayed in had no counter space at the bathroom sink and no soap holder in the shower--i.e.... More

Live in the area and needed a room for one night. Knowing that it was downtown, in an okay part of town, my level of expectation of this room was not high. Got in the room and thought this was a mini Hilton. Calling into the hotel and using AAA discount, room was definitely a bargain for what it was.... More

This is a really lovely property. I am happy to say that every time I need a place to stay in Riverside I choose this motel. The front desk staff is so very friendly and remembers me every time I visit. I also love that the rooms have flat screen tv's and that the rooms are always so clean. The... More

I stayed at this hotel about 6 months ago and found it to be just as clean, well-maintained as it was previously. The staff are always friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean, TV has lots of channels, air conditioner works well, and there is free WiFi. Free parking was ample. I asked for an early check-in and was accommodated. The... More

Excellent price! Motel is updated, very clean, beds are awesome & the staff is so friendly & helpful! We were in Riverside for a graduation spent 4 nights. Close to everything. The only thing it didn't have was a microwave but that was minor. Will definitely stay here again

Not too long ago my fiance and I stayed at this hotel. It was a cute little room which had been newly renovated and the bed wasn't so bad. The WiFi was a bit on the weaker side, but the tv made up for it (plenty of channels to choose from, including hbo). HOWEVER, the level of customer service was... More

This place is a nice little motel if you are on a budget. The rooms are small but the place overall is clean and well managed and pleasant service. It is a short walk to Mission Inn area and it felt safe but you are in Riverside so you always have to be aware of who could be around wherever... More

Had read a few reviews before booking and expected this to be an above average motel in its price segment but, boy, was I wrong. The motel looks pretty awful from the outside (we almost missed it driving by because it looked like such a run down place), the parking lot was cramped, the reception felt a bit shady, and... More
