It was our cheapest option for somewhere to sleep. The room was questionable. There was mystery stains on the blankets and hair in the bathroom. The breakfast was mini bagels, mini muffins, toast and some off brand cereal.

Having traveled extensively and knowing a great value when I see it, the Americas Best Value Inn Elizabethtown KY has been by far very accommodating. From check in day throughout my stay I got the sense that customer service is the number one priority. I was told that the hotel was refurbished, I asked to see a room prior to... More

The check-in lobby was very cold, which should have been our first clue. We arrived in our room to find it freezing. The temp outside was about 30 degrees, inside was about 40 degrees. We turned the heater on high and felt slightly warm air coming out. After an hour, there wasn't any change in the room temperature. We went... More

The staff was very friendley and helpful. The room (I should say the suite) was extremely nice. Wish I could have stayed there longer. There was a large variety of restaurants nearby and several that delivered. Looking foreward to going there again.

Stayed here as we were trying to save money. The clerk had to call the owner to find our reservation which took about 20 minutes. The room and bathroom were clean without odors but a ceiling tile above the shower head was molding and falling down. The headboard fell off the wall as my husband was unplugging our computer (the...

Avoid this hotel like the plague. Found a cockroach in the drawer. The tub faucet was 1 inch away from the wall and stuffed with toilet paper. The room key cover ask you to ask or you to "report suspicious guests". I had a non smoking room but room next to me and above me had smokers and I smelled... More
