Decided to take a trip to WV, as usual, I stayed in America Best in St. Albans. Visitors, try to get the river side room, second floor. Open your door in the morning and enjoy the river view. It is breath taking. Over all the stay was comfortable, but the mattress felt little hard.

My room was so dirty, there was hair in both beds in between the sheets. There was a noodle and soup stuck to the wall by the table. Coffee maker had used coffee grounds in it. Housekeeping had the nerve to leave a envelope for a tip.

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.

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

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.

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.
