This is only the second time I have stayed at an Americas best value in. The first was in Beckly and it was great. So I tried this one. It was more than I expected to pay but I figured the rooms were going to be as good. These rooms were not as clean and the air conditioner barely worked.... More

I'm not, by nature, a complainer but I feel I owe it to others to take the time to rate this hotel. My husband and I stopped here, late evening, as we were passing through. And my first regret was not asking to see the room before paying. Thw carpet had a "sticky" unclean feel, therefore we then wore flops... More

Our non-smoking room was really unpleasant. The bed was comfortable but the sheet had a cigarette burn as did the sink. The shower walls are cracked and splintering and the carpet is pulling away from the walls. Really old TV -/old fashioned cathode ray tube. Never again.

Typical budget room for a budget traveler. I'm a Value Rewards club member so we usually seek out ABVI. Some are better than others, this one was middle ground. We did not wait around for coffee and breakfast in the morning as there was a storm coming.

This was a big adventure for my 14-year old daughter who can act a bit "hoity-toity" at times. I booked the room so we wouldn't have to sleep in the car on Christmas Night while traveling. The floor was clean where the vacuum hit it, but thick with dirt in any place that would have required actual effort. After my... More

At fifty bucks a night I didn't have high expectations. I did expect a clean room and comfortable place to crash on a road trip. What I got was blood on the walls, a hole in the wall that had a wash cloth shoved into it to cover it up, light bulbs that were out leaving us with only one... More

We usually default to ABVI when traveling, but on this 5 week driving trip we have been disappointed more times than not with this one being the worst of all. Everything about it was not acceptable. The halls smelled badly, the room smelled badly, the room carpeting and sheets were not clean, the breakfast was stale (what there was of... More

It was 10 p.m., we needed 2 rooms, and the first two places we tried were full. So we checked in just to have a place to sleep. Rooms were ok, nothing special, a bit outdated, but seemed clean. Bed was actually quite comfy. Breakfast included eggs, sausage, biscuits, gravy, waffles, etc. It was supposed to be open until 9:30... More

First of all, the clerk was very polite and friendly. That's the only thing good about the place. Badly worn room, with mold in the tub under the no slip mat. Room smelled of old beer, hourly sex, and cigarettes. Carpet so filthy I kept my shoes on. Avoid at all costs.
