We usually book at the ABVI on Franklin, i accidentally booked at this location 11/22/14 and I will never go back. The only good thing about this location is the fact that it is so close to the stadium. Once we entered the room i thought it was completely out dated. You could immediately smell mildew as the bathroom walls... More

Our team was working in Waco for a week, I am usually the one that picks the rooms, this week the guys wanted to go a little cheaper so this is where we stayed. I have actually gotten cheaper weekly rates an the rooms were much nicer. Lets see the young man that checked us in was really nice. The... More

We had reservations using the Americas Best Value Inn Value Club. The man that checked us in said he had never seen that card before and did not seem happy with the discounted price we had received. Lobby was not air-conditioned. The King room was very spacious, included a microwave & mini fridge, air-conditioner worked well & the shower had... More

You get what you pay for. For starters, the lights were not plugged in by beds, the light didn't work over the sink, the towels were like sand paper, you could see thru the wash cloths, a dead roach fell out of our clean towel, there was a nasty rubber bath mat in the shower which harbors germs. Overall absolutely... More

This could be an awesome hotel. Location near Baylor is great although there were pan handlers in parking lot. The awesome reviews of this hotel are obviously a poor attempt to get their rating up. There is no confusion as to the poor quality here. Breakfast consist of dry cereal and milk, coffee, and waffle machine. Nothing else at all... More

Our expectations were low, and they were exceeded---on the LOW side. Where do I start? The only positives were the friendliness of front desk staff and the cold air conditioner. Water in shower/tub comes out 1/3 from shower head and 2/3 from faucet, ALWAYS. Carpet was damaged beyond repair, hair dryer didn't work, tube tv, windows and carpet are filthy,... More

Where to start? Another couple, my wife, and I stayed at the ABVI for the inaugural Baylor game at McLane Stadium. Our room was the better of the two but was pretty dirty and there was blood on one of the pillows. Not sure when the sheets were last changed either. Pretty sure a small child could have come through... More

Booked this hotel based on a stay at another ABVI in Albuquerque NM. While my room was ok, the amenities were poor. Advertised free WiFI but it was not working. The breakfast items were limited in selection and there were only 3 tables for a facility that probably has 200 + rooms. The facility maintence appears to be lacking. According... More
