“Musty, Dusty, Cheap”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

There are nota lot of choices here in Decatur. This one is as you might expect for the price. The exception is that the room greets you with a case of the musties. You smell it when you walk in the door. With some minor adjustments to the toilet I was able to flush it just fine. All things concidered it's a safe place to sleep in a very small town

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for one night just prior to collecting our RV's at the Fleetwood Depot about 6 miles up the road. The rooms are basic but clean and tidy and had all the basics such as a fridge, microwave, comfortable bed. There was also a supplied continental breakfast in the morning. For $50.00 a night, it was a bargain. However, nobody told us that for this sleepy town of 12,000 residents, there are no taxis! What? In the morning we tried to get someone from Fleetwood to pick us up but they were unable to. The owner then offered to give us a ride to the RV depot. This was awesome. That is service. We suggested he start up a taxi business in Decatur. Thanks for the great service. Much appreciated.

We pulled in late one evening when deep fog made driving difficult. There was space at the Inn. Our room was close to the office ground floor no stairs. Everything was clean and neat. A small vase of silk flowers on the table. A fridge and microwave were a nice touch. The room had a flat screen TV and free Wi-Fi It met all our needs and was great value

Recently stayed here 4 nights on business on CLC card. Have no complaints.....internet was fast...flat screen TV w/cable worked perfectly, great color! Heat and A/C worked perfectly.Room was cleaned every day and it was fine. Did not bother with the free breakfast, so can't say good or bad......slept very comfortable every night..Would not hesitate to stay here again.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2009

I can always find something positive to say about an accommodation, no matter what type or class, but not about the Best Value Inn in Decatur.

The front desk is set in a gloomy room, with a pretentious staircase in the back. There is no bell to call a receptionist, but a surly individual saunters down the stairs -- she must have seen our car arrive. The room was adequately furnished but the furniture was placed in such a way so that nothing was comfortable or relaxing. The bathroom was clean except for the old, used packet of coffee in the coffee maker. The exterior door into the interior hallway was so stiff that one had to put down each suitcase when we were unloading our car. We were loading the car and still had luggage in the room the next morning when the room attendant came in and started to strip the bed and emptyi the garbage -- this before 8 o'clock.

In short,drive on to Fort Wayne!

This is a great place to stay! It's located next to the Back 40 Restaurant, one of Decatur's finest dinning places. The motel has a wonderful outdoor pool just the same. It's newly renovated. With wonderful big screen LCD T.V. The rooms also come with a mini fridge and microwaves. I really enjoyed my stay here. the service is good as well. The rooms are clean and maintained.
I would recommend this place to anyone visiting this town.
