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

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
