Good room, comfortable night. Property was clean and the parking lot was well-lit.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2012

Stayed here for 1 night in Alexandria and it was very average for $65 a night.

WIFI didn't work and that the lady in Reception didn't know when a laundry was (across the road) were both a little annoying.

Very average, but not even close to being a great value inn. That they call the chain "America's Best Value Inn" annoys me now - a month and a bit after we visited!

My husband and stopped for the night during a long drive and it was reasonable. We paid $62 for a room with a king bed. The mattresses were old and needed replaced, the bathroom smelled a bit and was overall shabby. It was clean and that was important. The pool was nice but could've used a cleaning. The desk clerk was very friendly and accommodating as the first room we were given had a broken a/c. She got us another room with no problems.

This place is nasty we stayed there for 30 min after checking in and noticing little bugs in the bed after pulling the sheets back! I have no idea what they were but any bugs in the bed with you while sleeping is beyound disgusting! We got a refund from the office and went to Ramada Inn which was the same price as Days Inn but A LOT better.

First of all, Hotwire needs to get a clue and not rate this as a 2 star. Second, this property is poorly maintained, extremely unkempt and not desirable in the least. Despite making it clear that there was 3 in the room in my reservation with Hotwire, charged me an additional $22.00 to have a room with 2 beds, clearly a violation of the Hotwire rules (I'm not holding my breath on Hotwire giving me that money back. Anyway, my stay will be over in 10 hours and I'll be on my way...but buyer beware....and shame on Hotwire for its misrepresentation.

  • Liked — It has wireless...which enables me to write this less-than-flattering review
  • Disliked — Nearly everything.

Rusty railings, uneven walkways, dirty bathroom, roaches, loud neighbors beating their kids, a car broken into - We had to wait for the cops to finish interviewing the victim to check in.

We only stayed in the room 2 hours, and had to leave. For this, we were not given a refund.

This was through PRICELINE. Someone needs to have their butt kicked for booking people at this dump!

  • Liked — Leaving
  • Disliked — Not getting my damn money back!

I bought the room through Priceline and knew first off that I didn't want to stay there, as I was born in this small town and know about this motel. They were not accomodating, only offered me a King bed, while I had a husband and two children in tow. Asked for a roll away and they refused to give it to us, finally around midnight after my husband wouldn't leave the window (can't get in lobby after 9) they "found" us a roll away. They didn't clean the bathroom from the previous guest, as their toiletries were still in there. Black mold in shower and windows. Mildew through out and pillows smelled of urine. This is a no star hotel. Paid for 4 nights, stayed for 1 and got a room at the Best Western across the street. No complaints there.
