We made our reservation on one of the popular websites - stated hotel was pet friendly - called to confirmed they were so I made the reservation and paid in full for 3 nights - arrived after driving from AZ for a wedding and told they did not take pets - I was livid - I finally convinced them that they had assured me they did (had the woman's name I spoke to) so they let us stay with our dog - next day we returned to find a bed unmade - checked with office and they told us they could not make it as the dog had wet the bed - well, the dog doesn't sleep on the bed, my husband had slept there and he doesn't wet the bed and the dog was with us on an outing all day - impossible! We did get our pet deposit back after staying our 3 days but I was really skeptical - did I mention that the first room they gave us had guests personal belongings still in it - oops, they said, I guess they didn't check out - also, tractor trailer trucks park behind and run all night - horrible experience.

My husband and I, and our extended family, stayed at the Inn while attending a family reunion. The management and staff did an excellent job of serving us. Check-in was pleasant and the price was exceptionally good. Security notified my brother-in-law that he had left his car door open while unpacking. Nothing had been stolen. Everyone slept well, as the rooms were quiet even though the highway is nearby. The next day, housekeeping discovered that my sister-in-law had left her overnight bag in the room when checking out. The management notified us immediately so we were able to retrieve it before we left town. Again, nothing was taken. (I stayed in an expensive hotel on business the week before in Houston, left my sweater in the restaurant, and never got it back.).
We are very pleased with our experience and will stay here again.

We stayed at America's Best Value in Buda, Tx June 4, 2010. It was the worst hotel experience we have ever had.We checked in with 2 adults and 2 children.When we entered our room the phone was ringing. It was the front desk they said they were watching and it looked like we had 3 adults.(Our grandaughter is 11 and tall)I told them we did not have 3 adults and she argued with me.I would never stay in another of your inns nor would I recommend.Is it company policy to spy and question people's honesty?

I stayed at this hotel for four days while my semi-truck was in the shop in Austin , TX. They worked with me and my pet, which they usually dont accept, might I add. They took a refundable deposit which was returned to me upon checkout.The rooms were large and clean.The large refrigerator/ microwave/ in room coffee made my stay away from home more like home. Directly across the freeway, was all kinds of shopping and food. CONVENIENT! The staff was more than helpfull . Close enough to Austin but also far enough away to get around during high traffic hours. I will stay here again. Joe from Jersey

My and my boyfriend went to Buda for a wedding. We made our reservation at Best Value Inn we drove all the way from Dallas and when we got there we had reservations about staying but said it can't be that bad "right?". Well we pull in and pay cash and get our room key. We go to our room and the smell was just gross. It smelled like body oder mixed with mildew it was just nasty. As we looked around there were holes in the bedding, stains on the sofa, no towels, no toliet paper etc... So we go to the front desk and ask for another room. They show us to another room and it was the same way, the smell everything. We called the Hampton Inn across the freeway and they gave us a better price then what we were having to pay for this filth. So we take our stuff back to the office and ask for a refund because there was no way not even if we went to the store and bought our own linens we were staying here. The manager became very aggresive with us and told us that he would not be refunding our money. After alot of back and forth he only gave us 1/2 of our money minus the tax. Needless to say we lost money but ended up at a much nicer hotel that was just amazing and cost less. I would never recommend this motel not even for my worse enemy... Stay here at your own Risk....

To whomever it may concern: We as hotel staff and manager strive to do our best to provide a clean, comfortable and friendly room to our guest. The current management have been running this hotel for the last 10 years and have completely changes the look, renovated and upgraded this property. We have always got high scores on our inspections and rarely received any complains. As the saying or the rule in the hospitality industry is that the customer is always right but NOT in this case. The guest is taking advantage of this rule. Now he is trying to release his anger and lost case by placing a bad review on TripAdvisor? This is totally unfair. There was no problem with any of the rooms I showed the guest. It was a problem with the guest. He just wanted his money back which I was not ready to return for unfairly criticizind me hotel rooms. I have not even been rude to the guest or anyone else. rooms. Guest is very wrong to post a review like this online with Trip Advisor and ruin by business and reputation. Anyone is most welcome and feel free to check out our rooms.
