On the way to our destination, our family stopped ABVI for one night. Arriving late in the evening due to traffic, the front desk clerk confirmed our reservation and quickly checked us in. I inquired about breakfast in the morning and the man said it wasn’t worth it and we’d be better off going to a nice restaurant somewhere. Strange.... More

We were mislead by the reviews and even pictures of this hotel. Upon arrival it looked very run down. The restaurant was closed, which is the first thing you see. There were no lights on, and no sign to direct you to the office of the hotel. We had made an online reservation so we went in to see if... More

At least the room was clean, however the hallways and stairways were disgustingly filthy. Very quite, probably because they had only a couple more rooms sold. Do not think I would stay again, mainly because the place is run down and very dirty. I don't care that it was outdated, at least vacuum the hallways to make half of an... More

When we drove up I had my doubts, but the lobby was clean and the desk clerk friendly, so I took a chance. I drove around to the back to our room entry, Door F, on a poorly-kept road. A sign said "no loitering" but a couple of cars were parked there with half a dozen people in or nearby,... More

This place is falling apart. They had a pipe break in their restaurant so it was closed along with the bowling alley. The pool was also closed and was green. The ice machine was out of order. No breakfast, unless you count white bread, a toaster and a gallon of juice as breakfast. The halls are filthy. There is NO... More

Thank you for your response. Our property is a work in process that is nearing the completion of its first phase. The pool is slated to reopen this weekend (July 29th), with the restaurant in just about a week. During the winter season a room renovation project will commence. More

Great place for the money. Staff was friendly and very helpful our rooms were clean. It may be outdated but it was clean. This will be even better when the bar and restaurant open soon. Will definitely stay again soon.

This place is dirty, neglected and poorly run. I didn't have much choice when I arrived so I took a chance. The entrance halls smelled of mildew and had obviously not been cleaned recently. It was a Sunday, and there had been a bad storm The night before, so I was willing to give them a little slack, but my... More

Kind of an older place to stay... The lobby and check in desks were a little dirty and scary looking, but the room was clean did not stink and was priced cheap... Compared to the hotels around the area and their prices...this place is well worth the money?

It was awful. The outside doesn't even look like a hotel. The pics on the site are very outdated. We checked in, went to our room and it had never been cleaned. Front desk immediately got us a different room, he was the only good thing there. Our new room was still dirty. The floor edge and window sill had... More
