Value means that you're getting something for your money. You don't get much at America's Best Value Inn. You get a cheap night in a barely passable motel room.
Although it was moderately clean, the surfaces and decor were so old there wasn't much point in keeping them that way. The walls were so very thin that we could hear every word spoken in the adjoining room. It is located near nothing at all, in the middle of nowhere.
Once again, even though I'd booked for THREE people in advance, there were TWO glasses, paper cups, etc. When I went to the front desk to get more, I was told that housekeeping was gone for the day and they were the only one with access to such things. She did give me a stack of styrofoam cups and some set ups for the little coffee pot in the room. I don't know why hotels request the number in the party in advance if they're not going to do anything with the information.
The continental breakfast was a sad affair that no one in our party was told of in advance. I only knew because I booked at travelocity and they said there was one. It consisted of coffee, milk, some pseudo-juice sweetened drink, three cereals, bread and toaster, but no butter, jam, blueberry muffins, and value honey buns. Additionally, there was no music or tv, making it an even more dour experience.
As we checked out, the owner was quick to ask us to book directly through them so they could charge me more and keep more of the money. No, thanks. That won't be necessary.
Paying more elsewhere would be of a better value than sleeping here.

Dear Valued Guest,
Report response as inappropriate
This response is long overdue and in such case, I wish I was already in my position to assist with the unpleasant experience you endured during your stay. However, I am pleased to tell you that many changes have and will continue to go into effect in 2013, to ensure that the very best efforts in part of everyone on staff to make sure every guest is taken care of to the utmost value. Everyone who travels here is important and a vital asset to our longevity, to our livelihood. I've taken the necessary steps to implement some standards that were not up to par and only hope you will give us a chance to really show you great hospitality at the best value.
