Had to go to Palo Alto on an last minute notice and Americas Best Value Inn had vacancies. Stuff was very friendly and kind. The room was very neat and extremely clean! I'd defiantly stay there again. Close to a lot of places, too.

Hotel is nice, it's on the cheaper side of hotels in the area, but inside rooms are updated with new furniture and flat screen tvs. Front desk help was really nice. I was pulling a trailer with me and he let me park it right in front of office, as there parking lot is really small.

This is the perfect place for spending my nights after long hours of work. you have everything in the room while you are away from home. A home for me when I am away from the home. I highly recommend my friends and family members to choose this place when you are in Palo Alto.

Great staff and clean rooms. I manage a small proberty on Long Island and can apreciate the hard work it takes to have an Inn running efficiently. Thank you for enhancing the visit with my daughter at Stanford.

I was looking for an hotel with a good quality and a fair price and I can say that I could find it. Good bed, good bathroom, lcd tv, great variety of channels, laundry, parking lot in front of room. It's some blocks distant from whole food market, Walmart and target.

I stayed here while my apartment was being fumigated. Overall, the hotel itself was fine--decor was really outdated, but fine for my purposes since I was mainly just using it to sleep and shower. (It certainly would not be my choice for vacation purposes.) My main issue was with the front desk staff. The alarm clock in the room didn't... More

For the price I guess you can't really complain, but this is a place to lay your head, and no more. Walls are paper-thin; I could hear all the conversation from the room next door and hear them move around the room. When I was on the phone at 5am due to jet lag I found myself whispering so as...

Just clean enough. Beds were good and linen clean. Cellophaned sweet rolls were silly. Remember that breakfast is going to cost you at least $15 more per person, so think about spending the extra on a nicer place with breakfast. On the other hand, it is next door to Hobee's, one of the truly great places to eat. The WiFi... More

We weren't expecting much, but it really is a decent place to stay, far enough away but relatively easy access to US-101 and 40 minutes from downtown San Francisco and 15 minutes from San Jose Airport. "Free" breakfast consits of packaged sweet rolls, bottles of OJ and a container of water for the in-room coffee maker. Refrigerator, microwave and satellite... More

Given the name, I had low expectations. They were exceeded. Room is very clean. Furniture is adequate if dated, bed was comfortable. Office staff is friendly and helpful. Two minor complaints - the WiFi capacity isn't enough, so it was really slow in the evening (although I'm writing this very early in the morning, and it's fine now - which... More
