I stayed in the hotel for two days. nice place, cleaned room.The managers and staff are very accommodating esp Daniel and Brandi. The rates for my two nights of stay are affordable. A quite place to stay with a friendly atmosphere.

This property is under new management. My husband and I (Daniel and Brandi) recently took over the manager and assistant managers position here, and the property has been cleaned up, and we are in the process of remodeling. We hope that anyone who has stayed and has not been happy will give us the opportunity in the near future to... More

We stayed at this hotel in August of 2012 and it was surprisingly good (for the price). Our second stay was in July 2014, and it was terrible. I'll go chronologically: No pool - drained, except for 12 inches of green water. Room #1 - Yikes! It had a slight "barnyard" smell when you walked in. The bathroom smelled like... More

The room was dirty. Most of the amenities promised were not in the room - such as mini-fridge, microwave, sofa bed, coffeemaker. The key did not work after 1st night of a 2 night stay. Room was not made up.

I believe in giving a business a second chance in the belief that the first bad experience may be an isolated event. With that said, we decided to stay at the ABV on the way to Ohio for my sisters wedding. I reserved a smoking room online prior to leaving my home and upon arrival a few hours later, the... More

This place is not fit to stay in. The bathtub was black with dirt, couldn't even use the toilet, I took my finger to it to see what was on it and pure black filth. I have never been so disgusted in my life. I wouldn't even let me dog stay here. Don't waist your money. Anything is better than... More

The room did not look or smell like it had been cleaned ever. Towels were dirty or stained. There were two holes in the bathtub. The staff did not seem to care when told about the issues upon checking out. We would not stay there again.

Photos are misleading. They must be of some other place. This place is old, run way down, smelly, toilet wouldn't flush, we had to use a plunger, tub slow to drain, dirty room, stained linens, radio didn't work, TV channels didn't all have sound and those that did had a buzzing sound that made it hard to hear, the swimming...

I stopped here with the family on the way through to Florida and stayed here because it was inexpensive. If I were to judge all of America's Best Value Inns by this experience, I would not ever stay at one again. The room was filthy and included caked on layers of dust on parts, mold on the walls in the... More
