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.

I would not recommend this place to anyone. We pulled into the parking lot and could not get out of our. Paint was peeking from the building, Windows were broken and broken down cars were in the parking lot. Not worth your life.

My family and I stayed there on 10/26 to 10/27, 2013 overnight due to a family party we attended 2 minutes away. The rooms were great. We were really shocked by how clean and neat the rooms were. The bathrooms was clean and shiny and the beds were soft and comfy. The price made us skeptical @ first but it... More

room was about $50 per night, It was convenient exit from interstate and in a convenient location in so-so neighborhood but it felt safe, This is a basic overnight stay. The room was comfortable with good TV and a refrigerator but no coffee maker. The continental breakfast started at 0730 and was basic but sufficient. Staff could be more attentative... More

We had to go to Schenectady due to a family emergency, so really no extra money for the trip. We took a chance on this motel.Reviews said it was clean, which is what I cared about most. And it was true. The bathroom was spotless! I am a clean freak especially when traveling..I would have checked out in a heartbeat... More

Stayed one night for visiting Union College. The hotel looks rundown but was conveniently located, though not in the nicest part of town. The room and bathroom were very clean and everything worked. Plenty of clean towels and good water pressure in the shower. Fairly basic but comfortable enough. Because of prior old reviews, I did feel concerned about safety... More

This hotel was recommended by Orbitz which are affiliated with Amtrak. I was told by Orbitz it was a 3.5 out of 5. My husband was picking me up at the train station, but got caught in traffice in New York. The amtrak attendant did not really know where this hotel was, so I started up the long hill on... More
