I've stayed at this property three times each time I've visited Charleston over the past 15 years because of it's location. It's showing it's age but I would go back again next time. Regarding location, it's only about 7 minutes from I-64, situated along the river, and is close to fun nightspots. In fact the bar/restaurant in the hotel is... More

Recently, we paid a visit to Charleston, WV. We stayed in ABVI due to its location. It is out of the city, peaceful and on the river bank. I enjoy smoking a cigar, after morning breakfast, with coffee on the bench looking over the river - it is beautiful. The only problem I faced was the slow internet connection. Overall... More

I have stayed at this property every December for 7 years, and it gets better each year. Beds are soft, but better than other ABVIs who foist "bricks" on their guests. HINT = get a room on the Kanawah river side of the building, the CSX RR side gets noisy. NEW this year = blue and white LED lights on... More

Check-in went smoothly. I was surprised that they charged my credit card right away, and gave me a receipt. We encountered some guy who was high on drugs in the parking lot. The hotel looked rather old from the outside. We were surprised to see that our room had a jacuzzi in it. The room appeared a little dingy, and... More

Dear DLS311, Thank your for sharing a traveler opinion regarding your recent experience with us. I am concerned about the issues you encountered. We are an exterior entrance property located along the river. Since we are located in a natural setting, we do encounter various insects due to this. I am sorry that you did not receive the service that... More

While on vacation from SC, I visited with friends in your area. We did not want to fight Charleston traffic or the hassle of the big city, so we decided to stay at your facility. At first glance I will admit, I was very hesitant, but was quickly relieved when I was greeted with a warm and welcoming smile from... More

Didn't mean to stay here but glad I did. Good customer service (housekeeping, getting locked out of room, extending my stay) and good price. Favorite part was being on the river. Since I was "on walkabout" and just trying to relax it really hit the spot-- there were even a few gazebos with porch swings in them.

We stayed here several weeks ago on a road trip through the Eastern US and this was the worst of 12 hotels we stayed at. It is an older property that hasn't been well maintained. I would have cancelled as soon as I walked into the office due to the stench of tobacco smoke, serious stale and fresh smoke odors... More

I typically stay at America's Best Value Inn (St Albans WV) 2 to 3 nights a month. The staff is friendly and the rooms are clean. They have rooms facing the river with a good view.
