“Rethink your visit! NEVER STAY HERE!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2012

Our recent stay was horrible to say the least. I could not believe the unprofessional and down right rude staff. We were asked to pay an additional 100 dollar deposit to "make sure we didn't smoke in the room" and then in the morning they inspected our room in detail before the deposit was returned. When we had two guests over to visit with us we were asked when our guests would be leaving Also we received a phone call telling us we were being loud. First of all this is odd to us since we were speaking to each other in a normal conversation and secondly odd to us since this hotel had only 3 other people in the entire place while we were there. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone under any circumstances. Make the 5-8 min drive to Jefferson City where you can stay in a real establishment that actually values their customers.

Room Tip: Don't do it!!!!!

ABVI338, Manager at Americas Best Value Inn, responded to this review, March 12, 2012
At Americas Best Value Inn, we strive to provide a superior experience for every customer, and therefore your feed back is very important to us. We are a small 30 room hotel that takes great pride in offering our valued guest a safe, clean and quiet nights sleep that they paid for. If you were the guest being disturbed at 1:30 AM, we would have offered the same polite courtesy call to the guest disturbing you. I am sorry that the action of calling you at 1:30 AM made us “rude and unprofessional”. We are consistently highly rated by Americas Best Value Inn Chain for appearance and cleanliness and been a member of Americas Best Value Inn 500 Club several times over the past 13 years.

If you would like to discuss this further, please call me, Arthur Kristofik, Owner/Operator at 573-896-8787.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2011

We lived in Holts Summit for 4 years and were never in the motel. We went back for a visit and chose it for convenience. We stayed in 3 different hotels over 5 nights, and this was by far the best value and our favorite. Our room was large and clean. The bed was comfortable. The owners were pleasant and friendly. Do not count on a hair dryer or shampoo in the room, but we carry those with us anyway. They offer a simple and satisfying breakfast with a choice of cold and hot cereal, donuts, juice and milk, coffee, bread and a toaster. We are planning another visit within the year and will not hesitate to stay there again.

Room Tip: Two floors and no elevator.

I have paid twice the price, and they weren't half as nice as this motel. Room was super clean. The owner, Kathy Lee, was very friendly and helpful. Would definetly stay there again. If your going to Jefferson City, it would be worth the ride, it's only five miles away.

Room Tip: In a quiet area, and easy to get to.

This place is a dump! The shower was caked with mold, the curtains were stained and filthy, cigarette burns in the carpet, and the towels were grey. There are no hairdryers or microwaves in the room. They advertise a breakfast which consisted of cold coffee and danish cut into bite size pieces and stale cereal. But, the worst of it is, the freaking windows are pad locked shut! Stay away from this place.

Just a few miles from Jefferson City. The rooms was clean, spacious, well equiped and cleaned daily. The hotel was quiet and condusive to a relaxing stay. The managers were friendly and helpful. The price was a value and I hope to stay there again in the future..

This hotel was listed on hotels.com as smoke free and that was not true.
Link here,, http://www.hotels.com/ho174091/americas-best-value-inn-holts-summit-united-states/# ..My family and I were in a smoke free room and smoke made it into our room. On top of this, I was told there were no pets allowed after I brought my wifes very small dog in. The "owner" showed me a line that said not pets, this was on a piece of paper under the front desk glass 'in a 2 font', I almost needed a magnifying glass to read it. The price was great, but I could not sleep, due to the smoke, poor matresses, and highway/gas station surroundings.
