On the way back from Ohio this time around, we wanted to avoid the other ABV in Grand Rivers, but still needed a place to stay. After looking around the Paducah area, we found the ABV across the river in Metropolis for about $15 cheaper than anything on the KY side. Pulling in around 8pm, there is no covered entry... More

First off there was no cable. The floors were so dirty that my daughter's feet were black after walking barefoot for only a few moments. Bath tubs-dirty, toilets-dirty. Only toilet paper provided was the half roll already in there. Too expensive! Won't be staying there again!

Made reservations in Aug 2013 for April 22 2014. Had my conformation number and got to the hotel and the owner said I had no reservation showing. The area hotels were booked solid due to the Quilt Convention in town and we had no place to go. He sent us to his "other" hotel down the road. It was terrible.... More

Although we had made our reservation from Americas Best Value Inn web site we found when we arrived that they had no record of our reservation and because there was a major international convention near by they could not give us a room because they were completely booked. As consolation "prize" they booked us into one the manager's other motel... More

This was one of the worst experiences I have ever had at a hotel. We went in February and we were put on the side of the hotel where sheets of solid ice covered the parking lot. We slipped and sled and almost fell getting to our room. The walls are extremely thin and we could hear people arguing and... More

It was fairly clean, but it is an inexpensive hotel with no amenities. The remote control did not work and their was no clock on the night stand. Very simple and bare room. It was quiet and was ok for a 1 night stay.

I know that you get what you pay for but this was ridiculous. We asked for non smoking room and got a room with a non-smoking sign and reeked heavily of cigarettes like it had been smoked in for years! The air conditioner was off and the room was sweltering. The room was fairly bare of furniture and the floor... More

This isn't a five star location, and if you look at your reciept you will see yo udidn't pay for that. This is a very average very typical 1-2 star motel that is clean and cozy and well lit and safe. The walls are a little thin so noise was a small issue but not bad. Plenty of parking and... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. We paid $94.32 for both nights. The rooms appeared to just recently have been painted and new floor covering put down. The bathroom was small but efficent. When remodeling, they forgot to replace tubs and toilets. They were clean but you could tell they were old. There are no hair driers in the rooms.... More
