We arrived very late and stopped here because we just needed a place to sleep for a few hours. Front desk clerk was rude, room was dirty, and I heard trucks going by all night. You get what you pay for

Th whole place needs a update. I understand you get what you pay for. The room was very clean, bed was comfortable, would not eat in the breakfast area. Front desk person was not friendly. We were there one night was fine for one night,would I go back no.

Firstly I just want to say that I understand that you get what you pay for. We stayed in these kinds of hotels for 6 weeks and very rarely had issues. Now, we did not have any hot water the night we stayed. The guy on reception, whilst not friendly or happy, did do his best to get the hot... More

I'll start off saying that if we had not stayed the night before in the America's Best Value Inn in North Fredericksburg, we probably wouldn't have been as unhappy with the ABVI in Santee. The Santee location is really old and hasn't had regular maintenance from the state of our room (104). The ceiling had cracks, old stains, and in... More

First thing the beds in the first bedroom had fleas. We were moved. Then the breakfast was not fit for consumption. Bread and pastries that the expiration date was June 1 when this was the 21st. No coffee--the pot was nearly empty, cold, and the pot unplugged. Obviously from the day before. When I asked about coffee, the woman simply... More

I stayed at this motel for one week while doing contractor work in the area. It's not fancy or even modern, but if you are looking for an inexpensive room, this is the cheapest around. It's within walking distance to a gas station, and an ABC liquor store. Rooms have fridge, microwave, coffee pot, hair dryer, alarm clock, and TV.... More

This was the biggest mistake and what's sad we stayed there twice (on our return trip from Florida). We initially were looking for an inexpensive place that accepted pets. Never again. The carpet was so nasty my dog wouldn't lie on the floor. Stayed in its cage the whole time. Tired, worn out place. The topper was the "continental breakfast".... More
