This hotel is an real value. It was very clean. Beds were comfortable. It is close to the interstate but the noise didn't keep us awake. Front desk was very helpful and friendly. Whiskey Creek is right in the same parking lot for food. Breakfast in the morning had biscuits and gravy that were very good.

When I first entered a pleasant front desk clerk Samantha greeted me and offered a water. That was just what I needed after a long drive. The check-in was quick and everyone was very friendly. The beds were very comfortable and after a long day I slept very well. I would recommend.

As someone who lives out of hotels for work I always try to find the most cost effective option for whatever town I'm staying in. There are many options when you stay in St Joseph but I ended up staying at the ABVI for a month. My stay was clean, the staff very friendly, and the rates were the same... More

Since becoming a best value inn it has really changed for the better. The room that we had appeared to have been redecorated. It had a nice sized flat screen tv, a microwave and refrig & ironing board & iron. Everything was clean. Bed was very comfortable & linens were really modern, not the typical motel spreads. The breakfast area... More

The beds were clean- didn't see any bed beds before, during, or after we slept for a couple of nights. The rooms could use some up keep. The carpeting was greasy from workers. The breakfast was better than some. In other words-you got what you paid for. Don't expect a Marriott when you paid for a Americas Best Value inn.

This used to be a Super 8, but it has changed ownership. It was right by the highway, and as a single woman I was a little leery of going out into the parking lot in the dark. The lobby smelled strongly of curry, and the desk clerk openly challenged me when I said my dog would be staying in... More

The rooms are small and the worn out rocker chair had completely open spots of the fabric. The ventilator in the bathroom was so loud that you had to raise the volume on the TV set, the toilet was wobbly and toilet flushing from upstairs gave the impression that there was something wrong in your bathroom. The breakfast was a... More
