I even called ahead and was given a quoted rate. Upon arrival 10 minutes later, I was told there wasn't any rooms available at that rate and it would cost me twenty bucks more. At least I had my own transportation, I left and went to another hotel. Its just a matter of principle. I refuse to tolerate liars.

Upon checking in there was some questionable people around, one smoking, most likely pot. The room was in poor shape, sitting chair was cut with a knife and very stained, our non-smoking room comforter has many burn marks on it and very old. There was NO smoke detector and the safely lock was missing only the holes in the door... More

This has been the worst hotel we have stayed in. I usually look up trip advisor reviews before booking but this time my husband did the booking and he missed this minor but very important step. First room we got was smoking and it smelled really bad so we changed rooms and that was better but the room itself was... More

Overall experience was not good. The outdoor trash cans were overflowing with trash on the ground near the can on Friday when we checked in until Sunday when we checked out. The bathtub drained very slowly so you stood in dirty water as you showered. Front desk said they had no one available to check on it. Continental breakfast consisted... More

THIS IS THE WORST MOTEL I HAVE EXPERIENCED IN OVER 25 YEARS OF TRAVELING. I apologize for shouting but I know many people just scan the reviews and I want to be sure to get my point across early. The motel is located approximately 100 feet north of the interstate in a seedy neighborhood on the east side of Dallas.... More

For your safety and the safety of your family do NOT stay here! The hotel it's self is nasty, very dirty, feels dingy, mold on the walls. I had booked this hotel through Travelocity for 2 nights and I didn't even bother going back, the description on Travelocity is misleading and all lies! There is no free wi-fi, breakfast, or...

To start us off, I'm going to warn readers that my review will be rather lengthy to ensure that I cover all I experienced of this motel within my thirty minutes of being present. This motel has to be the worst motel I have ever experienced in my life and the fact that we were only at the motel for... More

We only stayed her for 6 hours since we were on the road. The motel is in a bad part of town and right off the highway, so if you are not able to sleep with road noise, skip this place. The room was okay. It was clean and the beds were fine. My only issue was the bathroom. The... More

My experience with ABVI was lackluster, to be generous. Me and my sibling needed a place to stay for the weekend near downtown that was cheap and had access to DART. This motel fulfilled both those conditions, but very little else. Fair warning, this is a longer review, but only because I want to cover all aspects that I believe... More

Family warned me this was a "bad part of town." FORGET IT!! For a low price, affordable to almost ALL (even families with children or those on limited incomes), this motel had courteous service, clean room and linens, no mixups, almost complete quiet, hot water, good temp. control in room, easy parking, good guests, and a convenient location!!
