“The savings is not worth the shortcomings”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2012

The good: was less than $50 including tax for a non-weekday night single. Had a mini-fridge, microwave, coffee maker & supplies, cable TV w/ about 90 channels. Area seemed relatively safe. Shoney's next door was decent and the Parthenon restaurant on the other side was pretty busy so must be OK. At a busy exit off the interstate so plenty of gas / food / mini-mart etc options.

The bad: sofa seemed to have a blood stain and a couple small round holes - did someone get shot in my room (see photo)? Shower was a bit dingy. Side table and dresser drawers had holes in the bottom and a fair amount of debris inside. No easily accessible plugs for computer / phone charging etc. "Free WiFi" but could not get it to work (after an hour of trying, and I'm a semi-pro at figuring out how to get onto hotel networks). Towels and washcloths were either stained, or a dark grey color (seemed clean, but stained). Bed was very hard.

The ugly: inside of air conditioning / heater unit had mold and some sort of animal droppings (see photo). It was incredibly gross.

The take-away: cheap place to stay outside of Nashville, if you're only over-nighting and plan to keep your socks on. It was surface-clean (sink, counter, mirror, tub and linens) but it appeared that nothing else had been cleaned in weeks or months.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2011

We stayed here for a few nights when we came down to TN for a family wedding. We reserved our motel online. Got there early they did let us checkin early they were friendly at the desk. When i told them i had the value club card which u should either get 15 percent off or free room upgrade the guy said he couldnt accept it. We got to our room it was a nonsmoking room but yet there was burn marks on the sink, bed spread and carpet. The bedspread had white spots on it that we didnt want to think about what they were. The shower wasnt the cleanest. The refridge was small but worked there was a microwave didnt use that. They did bring us clean towles every morning that we stayed. Breakfast was ok. Had cereal, muffins toast and waffle maker. Juice and coffee. So overalll the breakfast was ok. The hbo was in spanish along with half the other channels.

Dear BAH 1987,

Thank you for posting a review with us. I am sorry to hear about the issues you encountered during your stay. We are planning to paint all of our rooms, replace some carpeting, and some of our bedding. We hope that these improvements will enhance the overall experience. We hope that you stay with us again or at another one of our Americas Best Value Inns located across the Country.


Thanks

The campus has multiple lights out and trash cans are over full with trash on the ground them. The room was hot, AC was set all the way up. The AC vent was missing causing cold air to blow right on the bed. When the room finally cooled down, the AC cut off, then all you could hear is the noisy vent in the bathroomm must need a new motor. The beds looked like they have been around since the 60's. The bed frames were unpainted 2x8. I guess I must be in the Tennesse hills. The lady in the room below us found bed bugs. The manager has promised credit for our trouble, but has not given it over a month later.
If you see this place, keep going. Your car would be a better place to sleep the night.

First of all, the service was GREAT! We had originally booked a room earlier in the month after a poor experience with the Motel 6 on our first trip through Murfreesboro. However, after some family issues, we had to cancel. Once we were ready to head back through, I did not hesitate to book a room.

When we arrived, we were greeted with a smile. I asked about the Shoney's next door and was handed a menu to look over. I was pretty impressed with the desk clerk's service and willingness to help us out!

Once we got to our room, I was extremely grateful the room was very clean! The microwave and mini-refrigerator looked a bit old, but they worked just fine. One drawback was the firm mattress. I'm just not used to that firm of one, but I was so tired it didn't bother me. Americas Best Value Inn was a great value and I would gladly book a night for my family the next time we venture through the area!

We have stayed here each year for the last four years while visiting family in the area. The rooms are always very clean and well kept. Due to a medical condition this is always a high priority. We can count on this hotel to exceed our expectations each year when we visit. Would not stay anywhere else! Thanks for a great home away from home - see you next year
