The minute we pulled in the lot with our 2 boats, I knew I made a mistake. Booked w/Priceline.com. I saw 1/6 Bad reviews. Immediately were yelled at by 3 top floor balconies with undesirables to be nice. This hotel obviously has people living there full time. I went directly in to cancel, the owner (Mr. Patel's) solution after having... More

After 12 hours of driving from Mpls. I was looking forward to a good night's sleep before the next long day in Blmgtn. The hotel looked dingy, dark, and depressing. We noticed part of the towel sets was missing. We called and were asked to come and get them from downstairs. Fine, they're busy. Whatever. Around 11pm a group that... More

The "non-smoking" room was a joke. I had to wash all my clothes at a laundrymat after I checked out. The slider lock was broken, so I had to slide a table and chair up against it. It was extremely noisy with people driving in and out of the parking lot all night long. I will spend the extra money... More

This place has bigger, nice, cleaner rooms than Motel 6 next door, and good cable television. And are ALWAYS the BEST value in Bloomington. These other comments about cockroaches & such: Don't believe it, cz I KNOW they wash ALL the towels & bedding, EVERY guest-occupied night. They're a nice, Indian, extended FAMILY-RUN place managing it with pride. Kenny will... More

I visited IU for NW bball game with a friend and was only staying Satuuday night. We both aren't picky people but this place was just plain unacceptable. The whole place reeked of smoke and the walls were clearly stained by smoke. The bed sheets and pillow cases were very dirty and we had to ask for new ones immediately.... More

This hotel is absolutely disgusting. It looks like the kind of hotel people are murdered in in thriller movies. I booked this room for two nights, but on the first night I found cockroaches in my bed. I left in the morning and never came back for the second night. To boot, the couple running this hotel were insanely rude... More

America’s Best Value inn is located about a block west of IU’s Memorial Football Stadium on N. Walnut Street. It is also about a mile north of downtown Bloomington, Indiana. I was in town with my wife for the Minnesota vs. IU football game and wanted to stay close to the campus. At $156 a night I thought it would... More
