First off, the room was FREEZING when I first walked in. The heater was off, even though it was about 10 degrees outside with a pending snowstorm on its way. It took a while for the heat to permeate the room after I turned it on. The room was clean enough, but the amenities were bare-bones. No closet or coat... More

My stay was well worth the $39.99 per night. I was comfortable and safe. There were some cleaninless issues, however the management acknowledged those issues and fixed them. For the money I spent, this was well worth the stay. I will come back.

MY I stayed here last week with some friends and I must say I wish the desk staff was more friendly. I felt that the check in was almost robotic.I like service to be more personal. I would return as the rooms are clean and location is good.My room was clean and we had a nice time otherwise.

The ultimate factor in choosing a hotel is whether you can get a good night's sleep. On that measure, this property fails, so I can't recommend it. I found the hotel noisy between the roar of the highway, the slamming of car doors and alarms chirping outside my door, and the people talking in the room above me. The bed... More

Dear Guest, Thanks for your review in 2012. I’m sorry that you never got your necklace back to my knowledge. Perhaps it was lost at the hospital.

My husband and I stayed here this past weekend. The place was better than we expected after reading all of the reviews on here.

Wow, wish I had read the reviews before I booked this room! We were on a family vacation, we booked 3 rooms with this Inn because we received a value card in the mail.

I've stayed with ABVI before, and found them to be a decent no-frills hotel, so I had no hesitation to stay with them again. I have one of their Value Club cards because it gets me an additional 15% off. First off: if you expect anything other than basic accomodations, this is not your place. All I ask for is... More
