I guess the peeling paint on the exterior should have been the tip off as we pulled up to this "hotel". The lobby was the size of a small closet with the receptionist behind a bullet proof glass window. Thankfully my wife asked to see the room before we checked in. It was an 85 degree day and the window... More

After traveling through NY and the scenic 9 hours through the mountains, my friend and I decided to try America's best value inn again. I know in my last review of one, was horrible and I vowed to never again but one last Howrah was what I decided. Located not far from i-91, it is located off highway 5 on... More

My husband & I stayed at the ABVI in Holyoke on New Year's Eve. We were in the area to celebrate the festivities in Northampton, MA where all the hotel rooms were around $250 a night. I think we only paid about $50 (including tax) to stay here & the hotel was less than a 10 minute drive from downtown... More

Yes the smell is overpowering. I guess it's best described as musty. However the rate is cheap and if you are just looking for a place to sleep it's fine. I was expecting a complete disaster based on all the negative reviews but actually the room appeared clean and functional. Of course there are nicer hotels but you get what... More

Under the law of Massachusetts, this location is classified as a place for humans to stay. I cannot help wondering if it might be quickly repurposed as a hotel for pets. The complex scents that greeted me upon entering my room would delight and amaze any canine, feline or rodent guest. Was it musk? Compost? Cigars? Bleach? Mildew? I am... More

I needed to be 3 hours from home too early to drive the whole way in the morning. I needed somewhere to stay in between that would balance my travel time in the evening and the morning. This worked. The room was clean, the sheets were bright white, there was not a trace of mildew in the bathroom, DirecTV provided... More

Service was pleasant, room was decently furnished, sheets, towels, and bathroom were clean...however, the room had a strong musty odor, making breathing harder, and the windows had inadequate locks, allowing the rear window to be opened cockeyed. For heath and safety reasons I cannot give this motel stay a positive review.

I have stayed many times in what I call Mom & Pop hotel/motels. This one was part of a chain that I have heard of so I took the chance. WRONG!!!! At first glance, it seemed quite nice -- a long-large room with a desk & chair, a loveseat/sofa bed, two queen sized beds with lots of large pillows, a... More

I have stayed at this hotel multiple times in the last two years. I find it a very peaceful and pleasant place to lay my head while visiting the 5-College area. It is true that it is not luxurious, but for a budget accommodation, it is a very good deal. In my experience, everything is very clean and in good... More

Cannot understand how places like this can even be on tripadvisor as it should not even have a license to operate as a motel . Although rooms are clean and tide the entire building is a health risk (mildew) not only for the clients but for the owner operator as well . WIFI not up to standard area not so... More
