“Not bad, for the price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

This is a great place to stay if you're just looking for a room near the Interstate for a night or so. The place obviously has been around awhile, but the rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. The exterior seems to have taken a hit or two from the Florida weather, but you didn't pick a hotel because you wanted to stay outside. I had to switch rooms at first because the light in the bathroom didn't turn on when I flipped the switch, and the second room's door handle was difficult to get used to. (You really had to lay into it to get it to turn!) But once we established who was boss, it gave me no more trouble. Pool looked OK, even though I didn't have a chance to use it. This place even has a laundry room for guests. All in all, a good value for just a few of your dollars.

We took a motorcycle ride up to Olustee battlefield park for the weekend and stayed at this Americas Best Value Inn for one night. The hotel was clean and comfortable, it was quiet, the staff was friendly and helpful and the pool was nice. It was a great value and a nice place to stay for the night. There are several restaurants within walking distance. We will stay here again next time we come back to the area.

This is an older motel but the rooms have been refurbished and are clean and beds are comfortable. Not tremendously spacious but a good value at half the price of other area accommodations. Downside slight odor in the room we failed to identify and soon ceased to notice, some traffic noise which we drowned out with the air conditioner fan and traffic thinned after eleven. Far enough off I-75 not to be bothered by the noise from the highway. A number of restaurants within a few blocks, also a mall and Wal-mart. Staff was friendly and overall a place we would stay again when passing through the area.

Room Tip: No restaurant on site but Waffle House, Burger King, Wendys, Sonnys BBQ, and several more within blo...

Because of a Gator's game, hotels allowing pets either had limited accommodation, or were surcharging. My husband won, and we stayed at his choice rather than mine. For $39.00 we got more than what we paid for, but I would rather have paid more and had better. The accommodations were bug free and clean. But, we had two double beds rather than a king because the king was on the 2nd floor which was a walk up and with two people with health issues, the walk up was a problem with suitcases, a dog, and stuff for the refrigerator. (We were being gypsies for our holiday).
The toilet in the room kept running and so, every 15 minutes or so, would fill itself. The bed closest to the air conditioning was so old that it was split at the seams and the springs were showing. To be fair again, it was not uncomfortable, just worn out. The shower was a two piece moulded shower (no tub), which had a repair done to it. Clean, but again, shabby.

So, for the price, we got what we paid for. As for myself, I would rather have paid more for better accommodations.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 124. Check the mattresses for comfort before committing to a room for the night...

Thank you for leaving a review.

Thank you for pointing out, that, unlike an expensive luxury property; we DO NOT bill a surcharge for people with pets. However, as the other properties, we also have a limited number of rooms to allow pets simply because they damage rooms (i.e. fray mattresses)...as you encountered. This is also to allow for the majority of non-pet owners to stay in a room which is completely pet free at all times.

We are sorry that you were unable to have your room type upon arrival. We have a reservations system and fill up regularly. The downstairs rooms are the first to fill. We do have king rooms downstairs but they were already occupied when you arrived.

We are bothered by the toilet noise you had to endure. We wish you had called the office and we could have taken care of it immediately. We are fully staffed and here to help you at any hour. Thank you again.

clearest and most comfortable budget motel we have stayed in. New a/c tv.furnishings and shower was spotless. Yes, towels are thin but for less than 40 dollars it was a find. Did not use pool since we just wanted a place to sleep,but it looked fine.

Lake City is perfectly situated for a layover heading out of Floirda or back in, and the Americans Best Value Inn here is a great place to spend the night. We stopped by at about 11:30 pm without a reservation and were able to immediately get a room at the same rate as if we had reserved on line. With my AAA discount the price was fantastic.
The location, despite being near the roads, was still quiet. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean, and the bed was comfortable. The AC worked very well (in fact we got too cold and had to readjust it in the night) but did not make much noise. The staff was friendly and helpful. There is laundry, vending machines, ice and a pool, and several places to eat nearby.
The Inn is a great value when you are traveling and you are looking for a nice, clean, affordable place to grab some sleep overnight or even spend a day in Lake City. I know I will be there the next time we venture north.
