“Okay for a night”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

This place was okay for a night but we were glad to leave. Very run down and outdated, in desperate need of renovation. Very cold. We didn't find it to be overly dirty and had no problem with bed bugs like some other users have said, but it definitely wasn't comfortable and a little gross. Staff was friendly though! We were tired and in need of rest so we just slept there and left in the morning, and that was fine.
If you do end up there, go to the Galaxy Diner across the street, it is brilliant, best breakfast we've had in the US. Actually, if you are in Flagstaff, go to the Galaxy no matter where you stay!

There is a difference between cheap and something that is of value. We chose this hotel because it advertised a good rate and clean rooms. We weren't expecting anything incredible, just a clean room to sleep in and a breakfast in the morning before we hit the road again. Sadly, this America's Best Value Inn should make the chain ashamed.
Our room was terrible. When we arrived all the windows were open, even though it was 10 at night and in the 30s outside. One of the windows would not close at all. The blankets on the bed had cigarette burns in them and the sheets were dingy. The carpet was dirty and the bathroom was in terrible condition. The breakfast in the morning was meager and disappointing.
To top it all of the day after we stayed at this hotel our credit card number was stolen and used. We had over $4500 in charges. We've never had any problems with this before and can only assume that the management does not use a very secure system in processing payments (and that's the best case scenario!)
Bottomline, DO NOT STAY HERE. It's not a good value.

The Good News: Can't beat the price and location (very near but not on the main drag), and the king beds were actually in good shape. Although old and quite run down, the rooms/baths were clean. Not asked for, a nicely working fridge with freezer in the room. Cable worked. Kid- and pet-friendly.

The Band News: Service was disinterested at best. The "entire premises are non-smoking" - Not. Continental breakfast, in the front office, consists of 1 (one!) absolutely filthy 12-cup coffee maker, 2-3 varieties of packaged danishes and such, and a filthy toaster. Posted "Served 7-9 am" - Not; by 7:20 maybe. Towels are grey and mighty thin. lots of noisy comings and goings all day, all night.

Verdict: If price is your criterion, and all you need is a place to sleep and shower, this one will do.

Ditto on the previous warning. Motel is infested with bedbugs. Sheets not changed, blood stains (from bedbugs) all over. So gross!!! This place needs to be shut down! We called the public health department - I hope they take action. Dont stay here!!

Do not stay here.
My daughter was moving into the dorms at NAU and so we went up the night before and stayed at this hotel. I booked it through Expedia. It was unsafe, dirty, red stains on carpet, frig was warm, no locks on our first floor windows, no electrical plug in the bathrooms...terrible!

BUT..... the WORST part of it all was after we had checked out, later on that evening all these bites began appearing all over my body! It was horrible. I called my daughter who was now in the dorm and asked her if she had bites, and she responded with a resounding YES!!!
WE WERE COVERED WITH BED BUG BITES, IT WAS AWFUL!!!!

Don't stay here, warn anyone you know going to Flagstaff.

Room Tip: Don't Stay Here!

THIS location is terrible, well the location isn't terrible, the motel is. Long black hair's on two of our pillowcases made me wonder if the sheets had even been changed. Stained carpet. Pillows that appear to be 25 years old. Filthy, loud, seedy. Pushed a chair up against the door cause I was worried about how easily the door could be opened. If I hadn't checked in so late & found 3 other motels already booked on the way & already hauled my luggage up the stairs, I would have checked out, but I was just too tired.

Room Tip: Go elsewhere

It was our worst stay ever. Be careful not to be mistaken with Americas Best Value Inn and Suites - Flagstaff E. Route 66 which seems to be a good hotel.
This hotel is gross (stains on the bed sheets, on the sofa, on the carpet; the towels are worn out). It is not safe: the door seemed to have been forced and badly repaired. In summer, the air conditionning doesn't cool the room down, it's just noisy.
Breakfast is just coffee with muffins and jam if you are lucky enough to have some left.
The staff is unfriendly and incompetent.
On the hotel billboard and the visit cards it is written that the hotel offers a swimming pool which happens to have been closed down for ten years.
It is way to expensive for what hotels usually offer for the same price.

Room Tip: Choose another hotel!
