when checking in the guy behind the desk is talking and takes a can of spray and sprays it toward the door behind him to mask the smell of indian food! There was a mini fridge and microwave on a wheeled platform in our room but nothing in the other 2 rooms we had also. The coffee pot in 2... More

My family and I recently reserved two rooms at the AmeriVu Inn. Our experience was extremely positive, I would stay here again. Without hesitation. The owner and the staff were courteous and the surroundings perfect.

We made two reservations for this property - one for 7 days and one for 5 days. For the 7 day reservation, the room was good size and clean. The refrigerator worked satisfactory once we defrosted the freezer (it was packed with ice.) On the first morning, we were disturbed early in the morning by an employee looking for the... More

I have tried several times over the years to enjoy this hotel. The pool has such potential to be so fun (not many hotels have slides for all ages) and the area is perfect since I have family nearby. I keep trying again based on good reviews I see, and I hope that management has changed and the hotel is... More

The hotel was not as nice as the photos indicated. The main reason I went there was so my grand children could swim. The pool area was very dark, even on a sunny day. Had a nice set up for small kids with a kiddy pool and slide and also a couple larger slides in the bigger pool. The pool... More

I have never experienced such poor customer service before. We had multiple rooms (in town for a wedding). I was pretty much threatened by the Owner (I assume he was the owner) because we questioned too many times about our room rate. We were given one rate on the phone ($99 per night), then never received a confirmation, so we... More

This is a pretty out of the way place, but I needed to stay somewhere and ended up here. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised. The front desk staff were friendly (almost too cheerful for the time of night!) and the room was well appointed and clean. The pool area looked pretty cool and if I were traveling with my kids,...

I arrived at midnight and the staff there were nice. There was a hooka at the front desk and the whole place smelled odd like someone was cooking something weird. The bed was uncomfortable and the rooms needed to be updated. The room was very large though and the tv and air conditioner worked very well. I was sad that... More

I was a bit apprehensive about my stay based on the number of negative reviews. I would take issue with most of these reviews, as I found the place to be clean and well maintained. The staff was very courteous and helpful. Is it as nice as higher end places I've stayed? Of course not. It's a small operation in... More

We stayed here for a family wedding June 19 and 20 2015. Rooms were nice and big. Pool was good for grandkids, Only thing you could tell this was a family owned hotel. They tried to save money every way imaginable! Our fridge was not plugged in when we got there. No PB at breakfast and the cream cheese was... More
