We ran into an instance at "another motel" with a rather large blue bird on the signage in the area, with doors that would not properly lock, windows that would not shut completely and carpets that were recently perfumed to try and mask the stench. Rat hole conditions.
After calling several locations at 10:30pm on a Friday night, and exhausted from the weeks work and three hours drive... we stumbled across "America's Best Value Inn" almost by accident.
James immediately welcomed us and promptly offered several rooms that were available. (I asked to see the room, having had just been evicted from another motel for complaining about the conditions/non functioning room basics)
We were looking for something reasonable, that would accommodate 3 of us while we were in the area for The Valhalla Renaissance Faire. My only 2 conditions were that the room was clean, and that doors and windows could be secured. James informed us that he would allow us to look at each room he had available if we wanted... I didn't have to, he obviously had nothing to hide; however we did look at one room that was close to the office (and almost 80 degree pool) and was sold on the location convenience and honesty of our host.
While there are far fancier and more expensive places to stay, this place will keep money in your wallet, and offer a pleasant/friendly atmosphere. I would certainly visit again as I hear they are always improving on room conditions and also have a cottage that will suit a family of 6. The next time I stay in the area, the rest of my children and wife will be accompanying me. I know I can count on a CLEAN room, affordable pricing and great customer service at this Inn.
