There is inexpensive when a room is less money but decent and then there is cheap, when a room is just plain sad. The room here is worn and shoddy and very sad, however the employees were very kind. I did experience someone trying to enter my room after 9pm with a key. He had been placed in another room... More

The outside of this motel is not the best but the room is great. Everything is clean and in excellent condition. The separate sink is wonderful and a bathroom with choice of fan or no fan is fantastic. Sometimes one likes to use the bathroom without noise.It is close enough to the center of town we could walk to dinner... More

Judging by the favorable reviews we read before booking this hotel, our terrible experience might have been the exception. I hope so! The room was disgustingly dirty. We didn't feel comfortable walking around the carpet without shoes on. Staff was nowhere to be found at check in. We finally found someone and she acted like we'd bothered her. Then, the... More

All we needed was a quick one night stay as we were just driving through on our road trip. The lady who checked us in was friendly, professional, helpful, and efficient. Although the room was very dated it was exceptionally clean, very quiet, and with a very comfortable bed. We were impressed that the TV remote was a Universal Clean... More

Clean and spacey room and they have a pool. Acually pretty good for the price we paid. Ok, it's not the Ritz but we liked it. It's a typical motel with parking right in from of your door. (But we like that) The motel is close to highway 26 but not exactly on it, so no noise at night. It... More

Good value. Room was clean. If you want to watch TV you are either laying ib bed or sitting on a very uncomfortable hard backed chair. Right on the hwy., but not a lot of noise. I would stay here again when passing through.

Their was a function in town and all the hotels were booked up. Americas Best Value Inn had the last room for me. I had heard rumors about bed bugs at this hotel, I was a little hesitant staying here; but I gave it a shot. The room wasn't too bad, you get what you paid for. The bathroom could... More

Our room was very clean and beds were comfy. Although very basic, the room was a good value....it did include a small fridge and microwave. The $10 pet fee was very reasonable. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. Would definitely consider another night if ever in John Day again.

On a return trip through eastern Oregon we stayed at this motel for one night. The room was large and clean as was the bathroom. The bed was comfortable, sheets were clean and pillows were soft enough. The manager was very friendly and accommodating. This is another good value place to stay, we will be back.

You usually get what you pay for, but in this case you get a little bit more. Mold in the bathroom, dusty in the corners. And very weak WiFi so as to be useless. Staff was nice and it is in a pretty quiet location. Easy walk to a couple of nice pubs.
