Let me start by telling you I worked on the road full time for several years and over a period of 8 years, I spent over 2000 nights in motels all over the US. Almost all of those nights were in "economy, budget, or cheap" motels as I was travelling for work and had to deal with what the company... More

The short story: DO NOT Stay at this hotel unless you want robbed of you money by the hotel manager, and thrown out of the hotel in the middle of the night. The detailed story: The SCUBA Diving club I'm a member of reserved rooms at this motel just after the 4th of July, for a club event on September... More

HOLY HELL is the only way to describe our experience! Never stay at this hotel. The rooms weren't clean. I took a shower and walked from the shower to the bed and my feet were black. Then they kicked us out of our room in the middle of the night as well as the whole group we were with. They... More

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.
