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

We were completely happy with our choice of hotel, especially when we were told at check in that we were on the First Floor but only had to drive round the back to access the door. OK the hotel is dated but we found everything in the room clean and comfortable and the reception helped us with advice on where... More

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
