“Don't stay here!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

We were amazed that Best Value Inn would have its name on this motel. The rooms were dirty and our socks were filthy from walking on the rug. The shower splashed out on the floor in the bathroom and when I wiped up the water, the towel was filthy. It seemed that management did not really care about keeping the property up. There seemed to be a lot of people that lived there during the week and some of them were pretty weird. We felt uncomfortable staying here and would not stay here again. Even though the rooms were smoke free, you smelled cigarette smoke all over. It was also very noisy. The only good thing I can say is that the price is cheap and they did put a fridge in our room when we asked for one.

Room Tip: Don't stay here!

There were a ton of events going on in GR when we were in town for a soccer tourney and this place was literally the only one with a room available. I hesitantly booked, base on the three recent, good reviews. NEVER AGAIN! I didn't feel completely safe. The room reeked of cigarette smoke. Dim lighting, only two towels in the bathroom. Marginally clean. Never took off my flipflops or used the shower because it just didn't seem clean. Next time - I'll drive the 4 hours round trip, rather than stay at this place!

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else

I stayed here for the first time while on business. The hotel was within 10 minutes of the airport. My room was spacious and clean and had a coffee maker. Included free Internet and plenty of parking. Hotel has easy free way access. Staff was friendly at check in and check out. Hotel exceeded my expectations as I got a fantastic rate on the Internet. Can't go wrong.

This is one of my favorite little nitch hotels I like to stay in in Grand Rapids.
The hotel room was clean, and so was the pool. The beds were comfortable enough, and the staff was nice.
Some of the facilities are a little older, and the rooms are not perfect but for the price it is a good deal, and unlike many hotels in this price range, I felt comfortable sleeping on the sheets.

I was comfortable walking to the Speedway down the street at night.
The only sad thing was in my most recent trip they got rid of their waffle maker, but that was ok, as there is a McDonald's within walking distance as well.

Room Tip: Showers are small, but able to accommodate most sized people.

We went for cheap because we were driving in, playing in a tournament and driving out. It was disgusting. We'll start with the large no smoking sign on the door and about 6 very intoxicated people hanging out. Enter office, to a person behind the desk smoking and an over flowing ash tray in front of him. Quick discussion of let get the heck out of here and the 5 rugby boys decide that after a twelve hour drive we're just crashing anyway it will be fine. WRONG - they let pets in this hotel. So barking dogs, little children running and knocking on all the door until 2:30 a.m. when the cops showed up and a tow truck. Then people retreated to their rooms to party.
I will say the bathrooms were clean.

Room Tip: Do not stay here..
