“Very old, smells like garbage, moldy,”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2011

I saw the reviews and chose it based on the great ones. It was bad. It is very old, mold around the bath shower and windows. Many patched repairs seen on the walls and ceiling and shower tiles. Small window AC cooled part of the room and the rest stayed hot. Shower handle coming off and the water turned cool and scalding during the shower. Smelled from garbage can outside the room filtered into the room. The wi fi didnt work and when I asked for help they promised to call back and didnt. No connection.
The positives were that is was quiet only because the AC never shut off so no freeway noise could be heard. The staff was helpful and the pool appeared nice. Not worth the 66 per night charge.

sunilbk, Guest Relations Manager at Americas Best Value Inn, responded to this review, September 9, 2011
I would like to thank you for taking the time to review our property. Cleaniness and guest satisfaction is very important to us. Your review is somewhat of a concern but also surprising, because our staff was not informed about your dissatisfaction after you checked in and also at any point during your two night stay. Our policy in most situations: 1) change rooms. 2) a 100% refund if the guest is not satisfied and help in locating another hotel that suits there needs. If you were not completely satisfied after your 1st night stay with us, we would have gladly refunded your entire stay.

My husband and I recently stayed at the America's Best Value Inn on E. Monte Vista Avenue. We were in town to attend my high school reunion and to visit family.
The room was clean and spacious and the staff was both helpful and friendly.
Although we did not have the chance to enjoy it, the pool area was very attractive and inviting.
I would definitely stay here again.

This little inn is centrally located close to downtown, shopping, restaurants, and major roads in and out of Vacaville. The staff was friendly, accommodating, and helpful. The rooms were clean and quiet. Our room was equipped with a microwave and small refrigerator which was very convenient. This property is currently undergoing renovations, and the workers are efficient and nonintrusive. Our room lacked a clothes rack, we called the office, let them know we were going out for the day, and by the time we returned, the rack was installed and my fiancé suit was hung. Every morning breakfast is available in the lobby; the coffee is always fresh, food items replenished quickly, and pleasant conversation between guests. We will definitely be staying here again as we finish making plans for our destination wedding in Vacaville. Thanks Sonny (manager/owner) for making our stay enjoyable!

The rooms were clean and we felt very comfortable. The bathroom needed updating, but was clean and you could tell the furniture and wall decor had been moved, I assume, in an effort to update the rooms. The lobby was nice and the grounds were also kept nice. The pool is beautiful and looks sparkling clean and new. This place is a work in progress. I would stay there again and recommend to others. For the cost and comfort, it was a great experience. The staff was very friendly and accommodating.

The staff and management at this hotel were great and thoughtful. We have 3 kids and stayed here for my husband 's business trip for 2 weeks. This hotel was updated, large rooms, comfy beds, had a refrigerator, microwave and laundry facility. They have a continental breakfast in the morning. Any needs we had there were quickly met. This hotel is located in a great area with lots of places to eat, shop, and play. It's also very close to many awesome attractions. Our kids loved the pool area and the hot tub was nice to. We would stay here again or recommend it to a friend. Oh , and it's a great value.

Room Tip: They have king bed rooms or 2 queen.

The new manager is very pleasant, respectful, and helpful! The rooms are very clean and they smell clean too! I love everything about this hotel because I feel that I am staying in an expensive hotel. Big t.v, fridge, micro, desk, free Internet, pool, and lots of peace and comfort! The feeling is expensive, but the price is right. I've checked other hotels in town and I guarantee that this one is the BEST ONE! . I definitively recommend travelers to stay at this hotel, you'll love it!

It was over 100 degrees. the pool was sublime - the price was great! super location just off the freeway but no noise! How did they do that?
Great shopping just across the street at the Outlet stores; super Pizza down the street.
We will definately stay at this Friendly place again and again.
