This was the only place to stay for 4 nights due to last minute booking. The food wasn't something I would eat again. The hotels are out dated. But they were clean when we arrived the first night. I wasn't expecting much and wasn't really disappointed till later in my stay. The only staff member I talked to that wasn't... More

I booked a room for my dad, 3 nights, during Christmas. We were late getting him there and he had to stay with us. It was only 10pm and we could not get anyone to answer! The only reason they didn't get a "1" for their rating is, they did not charge me for the rooms.

I was recently stranded in St. Helens, OR. I was on foot and in a new town that I have never been in before. Need less to say I was not having a good day until I found this little oasis. The room was clean and just great and the people were so friendly and helpful. I especially appreciate the... More

Costly for an average hotel. Rooms were old but clean. Restaurant and bar were ok. Food average, bar live music was terrible the night we were there. Right on Hwy 30. Will probably stay someplace else on our next visit to Saint Helens.

This is not a hotel with a restaurant, it's a restaurant that has a motel as a secondary operation. At check in, we had a ten minute wait before someone showed up at the desk and then it was one of the waitresses from the restaurant who new very little about the hotel operation. When asked why the Americas Best... More

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.

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.
