Basic hotel room clean and functional. It was a warm day and the ac very efficient. The bed was very comfortable. The hotel is in a great centralized location close to activities and dining. A gift card to the on site restaurant was included which consisted of a fantastic breakfast buffet. Would stay again.

I stayed at the America's Best Value Inn in Saint Helens visiting family. The room was modest but clean. Comfortable bed, flat screen tv, refrigerator and microwave. We received a gift card for the restaurant with $10 per day; delicious homecooking! And the service was excellent, sweet friendly crew at this establishment. I would recommend this little gem to anyone... More

Very clean and cozy...super soft bed, I think it was a memory foam bed. They gave us $10 card to us at restaurant, really good food. No black out curtains so bring your eye mask :) We will stay there again but bring our own soap and shampoo.

After driving all day on our way home from visiting family in Grants Pass we decided to take a pit stop and drive through Saint Helens and up to Astoria. There are only 2 hotels in the area and because the Village Inn has a restaraunt and bar, we decided to stop and stay there. The front desk clerk was... More

The manager of this motel is one of nicest person in Oregon probably. If you're a Twilight fan... You will be close to many locations from the first movie, among them Bella Swan's house. The motel needs some renovations, to be up to my standards and to match the price. The bed was comfortable.

I paid $190 for 2 nights which was what I expected for a nice room like the ones pictured on the website. What I got was quite different. When I walked in the first thing I noticed was the linoleum tile floor. No carpet, not even a rug to put your feet on when getting out of bed. Then I... More
