We stayed here for the first time and unlike advertised - there was no wifi. Furthermore, the continental breakfast is simply mini muffins and coffee. The management staff needs to do a better job of training the reception staff - as i had to wait for 20 minutes to get checked in (even though i went through booking.com to reserve... More

My boyfriend and I were heading from Niagara Falls New York to Chicago and decided to stay in Ohio and go to cedar point the next day. So we looked for a hotel by cedar point. Since it was memorial weekend many hotels were booked. We came across Americas best value inn. After booking the hotel though an Expedia app,... More

We've stayed at this hotel a few times before. The room was clean as always. The bed was comfortable. We were in the back hall and there were only a few other residents staying at the time. It took 5-8 minutes of running the sink and bathtub to get hot water to the sink. Could be because there weren't enough... More

It's great to hear that you... More

We chose this hotel because it advertised a restaurant and bar on site. Well, both were closed and the place is a dump. The pool is chipping away, the rooms were musty and the hallway was filthy. My grandson was just learning to crawl but there was no way I was putting him down on the floor!

We stayed here after a long day at Cedar Point. We checked in late only to find our rooms had a heavy musty smell. There was mold on the ceiling. The pillows were not comfortable and you could tell they were heavily used. As for breakfast, not worth it. We left with hungry kids and had to stop somewhere else.... More

I was looking for a hotel on my way from Philadelphia to Port Huron, Michigan. This one was supposed to be right off the highway. It was 7 miles away. . . .but still not bad distance wise. The hotel itself is old and dilapidated. . .paint peeling, etc. The room was OK. . .quiet, nice carpeting, a (mostly) redone... More

AVOID THIS HOTEL! I don't know how they could get away with false advertising! The hotel photos in their web site are not showing the actual-poor condition of the hotel. The nice beautiful lobby and restaurants in the hotel photos are all closed, dusty and out of business. I don't know how this hotel is allowed to operate. The TV... More

Thank you for taking the time to rate and review your recent stay with us. Although the ABVI brand is geared toward the budget-conscience consumer, there's no reason to expect anything less than a clean and comfortable stay. We do advertise a limited continental breakfast but a breakfast is not even required of this brand. The good news is that... More

Front desk clerk knew wifi was down but did not tell us, the TV was some huge block from the 80's with a picture you could barely make out. There were someone else hair on the sheets like they were not changed from the last guest, just remade. The breakfast was some cheap cold and stale mini muffins and coffee.... More

Hello and thank you for taking the time to share your recent experience with us. Although this is a budget-conscience property ($129 for the date you stayed is considerably less expensive than most all other properties in our area), you shouldn't expect anything less than clean and comfortable accommodations. We will certainly review our quality standards with our housekeeping department... More

Thank you for taking the time to give an honest and up-front rating and review of your recent stay with us. As is indicated in our name, and as you point out, we aren't a fancy hotel.

Totally gross. Room had yuck growing behind the table and the mold smell was horrible. Needs to be inspected by the health department! The carpet was peeling up by the window from the moisture and the barroom was from 1979. Just disgusting! Ugh.
