If you want to sleep on top of the mattress in your own clothes in order not to touch the soiled bedspread and linens, this is the place for you. I have traveled worldwide extensively including many third world countries and this was by far the most despicable lodging experience in my life. The front desk staff is rude and... More

The sign on the front desk stated refunds only given within 10 minutes of check in was more of a warning. When we arrived to the hotel we were greeted with a strong dumpster stench. We had to wear our shoes all the time because the floor was stick. I found drug paraphernalia underneath a towel when going to take... More

Do you want to see a dirty room ?? And I won't show you the yellow stains on the towels.... If American Best Value is to take the milk from us, they did well one time but not ready for a second . Everything have to be destroyed or need a large renovation. It's better to sleep in your car.... More

The price was low relative to just about everything else available the weekend I needed to be close to Salisbury - I decided to save a few $ and give this place a try. The gentleman that checked me in was pleasant enough, though he appeared to be very tired. Over all the place was dark and dingy. There was... More

We arrived there about 20 minutes after making the reservation they did not have the information yet. The front desk associate took a carbon copy of my credit card and my ID. He gave me the keys but not a receipt or paper confirmation. The exterior doors were not secured. There was a kid that stayed in the hallway for... More

My father and I stayed here for the night after attending a Delmarva Shorebirds minor league baseball game in nearby Salisbury. Both employees we encountered at the front desk were nice. When entering the hotel, the odor of cigarette smoke was evident, but there was no such stench in our room. The Wi-Fi was adequate, as was the television. While... More

This hotel is adequate, but not in great condition. Had a problem with the shower control; a tiny distance between "warm" and "blistering hot," and it was tricky getting the water shut all the way off. My room looked clean and smelled clean - maybe a bit of a disinfectant smell. I didn't use the television or the WiFi. I... More

This hotel is disgusting. Filthy. Smells foul. Do not stay here...keep driving. Truly one of the nastiest places I have ever seen. We bought pillows and blankets from the nearby Walmart to avoid touching the filth. Because my friend had booked on-line they refused to refund her money so we could leave.
