This place is gross, they have roaches every where, they have barley any parking , and mean employees, they didn't give me complementary soaps! They need to improve this place! I wouldn't stay here again! I wouldn't even for one million dollars!

Not a good place to stay, inside or out. Difficult to get to parking lot. Not too clean. No coffee maker in room - not even in the lobby! Bed was not that great. Blow dryer did not work. No little soaps or shampoo/conditioner bottles. It would be ok if it was around $50, but I paid close to $80.... More

I stayed there one night and it was the most disgusting room I've ever seen. Half the lights did not work. The carpet appears to not even been vacuumed. There were lots of trash behind the bed headboards. There was a giant dead roach in the tub. There were crumbs everywhere. The beds were very hard. I fully expect a... More

In San Marcos this weekend and attempted to book a disabled veteran in the Americas Best Value Inn. They do not give discounts to Veterans. This is the 3rd ABVI that refused Veteran discounts. Disappointing in so many ways. Just to let all you Vets know.

Horrible location for getting into the parking lot. Extremely overpriced for amenities provided. Internet does not work, it takes many tries to connect to the wifi, and once you have it is slower than 2400 bps dial up. Literally the worst hotel in the whole city, you will not be glad you stayed here. Front desk employees are rude and... More

The entrance to this motel is on the one-way turn from IH 35 South feeder road to Aquarena Springs Drive. We were there for a family wedding an only stayed one night. The owner and employees are very nice. VERY HARD BEDS. The carpet in the room was VERY dirty. This is a VERY noisy location because it is RIGHT... More

The bed was so hard we may as well have slept on the floor. There was no shampoo, no coffee, the clock did not work, the wi-fi only stayed connected a few minutes at a time. There was a used bar of soap in the shower and lots of hair on the floor. I went to the office to ask... More

I would not recommend my dog to stay here. The sheets smelled like urine, the mattress was 30+ years old, the springs in the mattress were broken, the furniture was broken, the hairdryer was a fire hazard. All together a complete and total dump. NOT RECOMMENDED to anybody!!

The rooms were disgusting. I don't know how this place has not been shut down by the health department. Arrived at about 7:00pm and paid the front desk for the rooms (4), then went and looked at the rooms. All 4 smelled awful. One had what appeared to be blood stains on the floor and other stains on the walls... More

They stole my money. Paid on the spot, no reservation for a week, rooms were totally not acceptable and staff was rude. Did not stay ONE night yet they refused to credit my card! Paid for a whole week and used nothing at their hotel but received not one penny as a refund. They claimed they have a 'no refund'... More
