First of all, we weren't expecting to stay at this motel, were hoping for something closer, in a different town. We tried to make a reservation at the Americinn Motel in Litchfield, and when we called the 800 number, there were no more rooms available, so the lady checked and they had 4 rooms left, so we booked one, but...

I was looking for a convenient, affordable hotel to spend the night while making a long drive. The location and price fit the bill and the service was good. I wasn't expecting the Ritz, but I did expect it to be clean...it wasn't. There was a "hair" on the toilet seat, the bathroom counter hadn't been wiped down, and it... More

We stayed at the Clearwater America's Best Value Inn last week. We stayed there last year and had a nice experience. Now it has a strong stale smell of smoke. I don't think you can separate "smoking" vs "non smoking". The room was OK, service too. We didn't use the pool, but the hot tub was fine. Someone complained on... More

Everything was booked in St Cloud so we had to stay in Clearwater. I can't think of any positives about our stay. Here's some the negatives: we had a non-smoking room but the entire hotel smelled of smoke, very dated décor, no breakfast, shower curtain rod was falling off which made it impossible to keep the shower curtain in place....

I'm local and stay here for our kids to use the pool and such. Pool was cold and dirty and so was the hot tub. No breakfast although it was advertised. Price fluctuates for rooms every 10 minutes so you don't know what you'll pay. Room was not ready and was told to wait 30 min then we could enter.... More

Clean room that was a good value for price?? I booked this for the hot tub on a frozen January night just to walk into the pool room and see it was closed. Cold water in the hot tub with a closed sign on it. The pool room was cold and it seemed to me they just don't want to... More

We stayed for 3 nights and booked 2 rooms, a Queen non-smoking room and a double smoking room. Both rooms had microwaves and refrigerators and are in the process of being updated. They were both very clean, newly painted, and had new carpet and flat screen TVs. The furniture and bedspreads are dated but clean. The pool area and jacuzzi... More

Years ago it was an OK place to stay. Nothing fancy but clean and well taken care of.It Its; always had a... More

Nothing fancy but clean, surprisingly quiet and inexpensive. The two story building reminds me of an older AmericInn, I wonder if it once was one. Motel is about a block off I-94. Nelson Bros. restaurant/bakery is across the road for a good breakfast. 24 hour Coborn's grocery store 1 block. About 12 miles from central St. Cloud but well worth... More
