The hotel was a very uneasy and uncomfortable experience. The room itself only had one outlet with 2 plugs just enough for frig and alarm clock which were across the room. Alarm clock was not by the bed.Only other outlet was in the bathroom. The room was not that clean and the shower looked dirty and run down. Curtains wouldn't... More

Stayed at the motel last minute. When checking in, the staff didn't make eye contact. The room was small, there were stains on the carpet and bedding! The room took so long to warm up. There was no iron and when we asked for one, we were told to come back in the morning! This place is so shady! Pay... More

Very neat, clean, little room, used while passing through. Read reviews and was kind of leery and was pleasantly pleased. Neighborhood looks scary but seemed harmless. Price is right but don't expect much. Plenty of hot water for a shower and bath.

We wanted an inexpensive room for the night since we were arriving late and leaving early. We chose this hotel even though the reviews were mixed. The exterior of the hotel is not appealing, however our room was very clean and the sheets and towels were sparkling white. No odors in the room at all. Carpet looked new. Conveniently located....

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights because it is difficult to find an inexpensive hotel in the area. The front desk clerks were friendly but there was no breakfast, sometimes no coffee or coffee cups, every morning I stayed. They advertise a breakfast and I wasn't expecting much but there was no breakfast. The room was small and... More

Don't expect the motel staff to help you at night time. A couple argued throughout the night just outside our room around 1:30am. I asked them politely to keep it down but they refused. I called the night manager and asked for his assistance. He tried to rationalize the intrusion by saying, "they just checked in and were simply talking".... More

For a motel, it met my standards. If you just need a place to stay, it's fine. Our room was clean with a bed, TV, shower, and desk. If you want to stay in a hotel, not a motel, this will obviously disappoint you. The hotel is in a bad part of town. Only a few streets away though, is... More

I'd never stay there again ! These pictures are old, Americas Best Value Inn looks nothing like the picture. Absolutely the worse, needs a Jon Taffer overhaul (too bad he only he rescues bars). Half of the rooms in the hotel are empty. All night all I heard were police siren and ambulances.
