If you are just wanting a decent place to sleep while staying in Grand Forks this is definitely an option. Staff is friendly, room was clean. This was the first time ever asking for a cot and actually getting it promptly without having to remind staff. It is a little out of the way from the shopping district.

Booked four nights at the Grand Forks ABVI. I traveled alone, so when I checked in I told the clerk I did not need room service. I always do this as a courtesy to the staff, as I don't need fresh towels every day nor my bed made. I asked the clerk if I needed to hang the do not... More

Mitch, Gavin, Mackenzie and Renee are great people. They work at America's Best Value Inn in Grand Forks North Dakota USA. Our stay there proved to be most enjoyable because of these great people. Because of people like Mitch, Mackenzie, Gavin and Renee I'd stay here again.

One of the most annoying stays at a motel I've had in a while. It's a one story establishment with multiple buildings. The lobby is nice,and so were the staff. That's the end of the niceness. The room they put me in smelled like a combination of your typical old, musty motel and cat urine. There were brown stains on... More

Basic hotel off interstate highway. Clean and good value. Front desk friendly. We did not partake of breakfast-appeared to be standard hotel chain self-service style. We looked around front desk for information on local eateries. Two advertising flyers and one pizza menu. Google maps to the rescue.

The ABVI is not a fancy place, it's your average Motel that provides a good, clean place to stay. It's conveniently located near UND and provides a centrally located place to access highways. The room was basic, but clean. Housekeeping did a great job. Breakfast was ok, nothing fancy, just the basics. Overall, would definitely stay here again. Good value... More

Certainly not a 5-star hotel, but provides what we need for our stay. This is one of the few hotels that we have found that works well with travelling with a pet. It has nearby green space for pet washroom visits and it appears that most guests pick up after their pet. Rooms could use some updating but the beds... More
