It was worse hotel I ever stayed in! I will never, never again go there again! Breakfast was a joke; we decided to go out to eat. Everything there was dirty: walls, floors, refrigerator, bed covers, even flyers had old spots from coffee on them!

I have stayed in many hotels throughout the USA and Europe, but this one was bizarre to say the least. If I had known it was previously a Days Inn I would never have booked it, but then again a Days Inn would have been better following this experience! I am a veteran and I do have some slight mobility... More

The king size bed had a Queen fitted sheet on it and it was stained with blood or something. We pulled flat sheet up and slept on it.. The card that holds the tv channels was absolutely nasty.. There was a hole in the bathroom wall as big as a softball and they stuffed it with tissue.... Other then that... More

Not recommended! Cheap room! You don't get what you pay for. Dirty, heater so loud you can't sleep. Embarrassing for my guest. Bad idea! Go to another hotel / motel! Hey the internet works here. Never stay here again. I suppose it is shelter. Would not give it a rating except this survey made me give it 1 star. Be... More

I have had some pleasant stays at America's Best, but this was not one of them. I don't want to just bash a place, but this one is past it's useful life. A lot of motels in Helen seem to be likewise. It's a nice town, but not much to do other than visit small shops and eat. The motel... More

Just passing thru and needed a place to stay for the night. The Bad: Curtains didn't close all the way and had to clip closed with a hair clip. The outlet near the bed did not work for the alarm clock and good thing my cpap machine had a long plug to reach the other wall. The floor was soft... More

Room is typically average. There was a musty smell upon entering our non-smoking room. Once the Ac/heat unit was set and turned on, it faded to a large extent making the room more pleasant. There was a single hair on the inner bed sheet and the sheets were rough feeling to the touch. Double bed mattresses were fairly comfortable and... More

Where to begin? OK, we read the reviews, they were terrible but we were looking for a crash pad for Oktoberfest. Can't be that bad and still be licensed, right? We found a crash pad. First, the positive: the place wasn't as bad as we expected. Yes, the plaster's peeling from the ceiling but the room was clean, there were... More
