John Day, Oregon is over two hours away from about any major hotel. So, if you are looking for a good place to stop-over, rather than drive another 140 miles, America's Best Value in John Day is just what its name says- the best value. It is comfortable and clean. We have been stopping off here for several years and... More

We stayed one night here. The room was clean, freshly painted and no bad smells. I rate it 4 stars because of it's cleanliness and comfort. It's not luxurious but it has what you would need for a night away. Microwave, coffee maker, fridge, tv, wifi, good heating/ac system, toiletries. The hospital is just up the hill and there are...

Great value! The rates are reasonable and our room was clean and well equipped. The woman at the front desk was helpful, plus her dog Pele was a doll. I will definately stay return if i'm in John Day again.

If you like mismatched furniture, replete with numerous cigarette burns, walls with numerous holes and in desperate need of a paint job, worn out carpeting and linoleum, and a musty old cigarette odor in a non-smoking room, then this is the place for you! If not, avoid this place at all costs.

We go to the John Day area quite a bit because we like to ride our motorcycles in this beautiful area. The America's Best Value Inn is a wonderful place to stay. The staff is very friendly, the rooms are large, comfortable, clean, quiet and the location is great. It's definitely the place we will stay every time we're in... More

I was again very pleased with an Americas Best Value Inn. The room was large, clean and well equipped. The lady at the front desk was friendly and welcoming. In spite of it being on a main road, it was quiet. For the price, it was a very good place to stay.

We stayed for one night. The lady in reception seemed to be doing everything. We got the last room. The motel was on the side of the road but we didn't hear any traffic noise. The room was a good size and clean. After our last stay in ABVI we were a little concerned about staying again, but this place... More

This is a large motel with plenty of parking. The room was clean and practical. It provided all the basics, shampoo, conditioner, soap, ironing board and iron, hair dryer, TV, internet… The staff was pleasant and very helpful. We had a reservation for two nights, but needed to leave after the first night and we had no problem getting out... More

I stayed here one night and it was really pleasant. The beds were very comfortable and I liked that the motel was very centrally located in the community. I went for two walks and walked around the City Park which is only two blocks away. If I were going to this motel with children, I wouldn't even plan to swim... More

It's a motel like many others, save enviroment, nothing too special. The rate was good, it's not far from the city center...but our room wasn't properly cleaned: had some hair in the bathroom, a used razor in the trash and a used water cup in the room...the rest was ok, shampoo filled up.... I hope this was just an exeption,... More
