“WOW! NEVER AGAIN!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

Nathan, the "manager", was rude and very obnoxious to say the least. Bugs and drugs! If you don't mind crack heads being loud at 3 a.m. and gnats and roaches feel free to stay at this VERY poorly managed hotel. He gives americas best value inn a bad name! He threatened to call dcf if we called the owner because of his UNPROFESSIONALISM. When this hotel was Ramada it was 4 stars! Look at it now! Enough said! Very gross! He never did give us the owners name but the maintenance man did. We have called the board of health as well as code enforcement.

I have stayed at this motel through the years carrying varying names , under the American Value Inn they are truly a great value . Hospitality from GM Nathan and staff re there to please and for $50 a night its a good place to stop and hang out a while ... has a pool , clean rooms , a continental breakfast and very convenient location at 75/west University Ave ... "Ill Be Back" :)

Room Tip: rooms on opposite side of 75 are naturally quieter

Awesome stay. Check in was quick and easy. The staff did their very best in making me comfortable. Clean room and extra pillows. It's close enough to the mall and u of f to enjoy myself and not worry about being too far away from the room to enjoy myself if i go out drinking .

There is definitely a reason why mariott next door is $150 and this dump was $50.. our first room we requested non smoking and of course the room reeked of smoke and musk.. the owner said he couldnt understand that..well neither can i.. the next room we got had huge blood stains all over the sheets to one of the beds and black mold spots on the walls. Once again we went to the office and he says he doesnt know what it is.. we were put in an upgraded room if thats what you want to call it. The furniture and tub were so dirty. I itched all night. We went to the office to get more towels and he literally gave us one. When asked why he said its not his fault we have 4 people in our party. Ive never been so disgusted with a place where id feel a need to go in on them. Until NOW! This place isnt just bad it really should be condemned. The owner also needs to learn to do business and have respect for customers. Maybe than customers will actually go back instead of spreading the word of disgust.

Awsome. I often stay at americas Best Value Inn and I've gotten great service. My room is always clean and customer service has always been top notch. Nathan, the manager, always puts the customer first.
