“Nice Staff, Comfortable Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2011

My car broke down outside Los Banos back in September on the I-5. I spent a few hours with road side service and a Ford Dealership before I arrived at the front desk of "Americas Best Value Inn" without a reservation. The front desk staff turned my bad situation into a GOOD thing as they were so warm and understanding and bent over backwards to make sure I was comfortable.
I was so impressed by their hospitality that I stayed there again in October on my next trip and I do plan to make a reservation to stay in this hotel whenever I am driving through the Los Banos area. Two Thumbs Up !!

Room Tip: Select "Non smoking" for the very cleanest of rooms.

My husband and I for the last 8 months, stay at this hotel once a month. We were staying at Best Western, across the street, paying close to a $100.00 a night. Our Pator, told us about Americas Best Value, so we tried it and never went back to Best Western. The rooms are clean, large, it's in a great location, (food, shopping, parks), great people that manage the hotel and the price is right!
Across the street is the best cafe, "Eddie's". We have breakfast there whenever we're in Los Banos and the service is great there too.
Thank you, you are Americas Best.
Cecil and Lucille McKenzie, Elk Grove, Ca.

Room Tip: We always stay on the first floor and we are very satisfied.

Hotels/Motels in Los Banos seem to be generally expensive compared to the rest of the Californian valley. Probably the best value for money is the "Americas Best Value Inn". Comfortably situated, large and fresh rooms, very good bathrooms, new TV, everything nice & clean, certain kitchen appliances provided, free wireless.
On the negative side we can mention the useless pool and the miserable breakfast.

Thank you for you review, we appreciate your taking the time to give us your comments. We work hard to provide you with the best possible accomodations at the most reasonable rates. We apologize that the swimming pool was not open however the pool is a seasonal amenity and is closed between labor day and memorial day due to winter weather.

Cheap hotel, clean room, good size. Bathroom was fine, toiletries provided. Water smelled a bit funny. The pool smelled awful (probably because of lack of use in the cold weather and no water treatment).

Breakfast was awful. Bad coffee, orange color water being passed as orange juice, some cereal, and pastries bough by the dozen at the closest grocery store.

What a find! I agree with most of the reviews here, if not all, as the cost is very low for what you get! You get a cozy/comfy little room that is well maintained, has a microwave/refrigerator, coffee pot, shampoo, Wi-Fi, good sized color TV, and the overall property is clean, maintained, and the staff is nice!

Directly across the street is one of the best restaurants we have ever eaten at (see my review!) , for a small town family restaurant that is, along with a brand name ice cream joint, and a couple of Asian/Oriental restaurants. Oh, and a liquor store is 30 seconds away should your own libations run low ;)

See our photos, and I think you will agree, it's a good deal, barely over $50 in October 2010! :)

We wanted a reasonably priced motel with a pool on our way from Mariposa to the coast. (temperatures were over 100). We booked the night before on-line and took a chance on the America's Best Value. It turned out to be a really pleasant experience. The room was spotless and spacious, the plants around the courtyard were attractive and well-cared for and the pool was fine and suited our purpose. We were in walking distance of shops and restaurants in the evening and overall we got what we were after. It is beside a busy road but that is only a minor problem. Would thoroughly recommend it.

We were traveling through the area and needed a place to stay. The reviews were good so we thought we would try it. This is also a dog friendly place and we were traveling with our best friend. The manager was very friendly and made us feel welcome. The room was very nicely updated and clean. It was worth it to drive a little distance from the freeway.
