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.

We stayed at <Americas Best Value Inn John Day> when we travelled to Central Oregon (from the Willamette Valley) to tour the Painted Hills & John Day Fossil Beds. We stayed 3 days - W, TH, F and checked out Sat in Aug 2014. We were told they were having an inspection the following week... so there was some pressure... More

I was initially a bit skeptical because of the complaint I read about bedbugs, but that was clearly a one-off event (it can happen anywhere if you're unlucky with the previous occupant). This place isn't the Ritz, but then they don't charge Ritz prices. it's a good deal. Clean and comfortable with all the basic amenities. Even though the motel... More

This place was clean and quiet. The room was spacious and the beds were comfortable. The place could use some updating outside. We rode in for an overnight stay. The front desk was more then helpful and recommended a great little place to eat ( the Squeeze) right across the street. They were motorcycle friendly the front desk even provided... More

We had a clean, comfortable room, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that the amenities were eco-friendly - I didn't expect it. The wi-fi worked fine, the front-desk staff was friendly, and overall it felt like the quintessential American motel experience (with the added comfort of wi-fi, AC, and unlimited supply of hot water, of course), which we thought...

I recently stay here in john day and had the worst hotel experience I've ever had. My room was invested with bed bugs. I had been eaten alive with blood spots all over the sheets to proove it. Would have never noticed it if they had been cleaning or changing the sheets but they didn't the 4 days I stayed... More
