This place is terrible, the place smelled bad, elevator didn't work. Ice maker on 3rd floor didn't work. Could hear everything from hallway and other rooms. Furniture sitting outside. I don't like giving bad reviews, but this is not a good place.

Given the previous reviews, I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. I learned that it is under new management (two months) It was very inexpensive, clean, and the service was very responsive. The included breakfast was simple--juice, hot and cold cereal, bagels and cream cheese. It is located close to fast food, downtown, and Amtrak. It had a nice indoor...

Checked in and checked right back out! The mothball smell was over powering. The chair in the room was stained terrible. It makes me wonder what bug or rodent they were trying to get rid of with the mothballs.

I spent 5 nights here and decided to move. Cosmetically it is what you would expect for the price, a bit run down, dated, stained furniture, but my room was clean. I was never given a wifi password, so I assume there is no wifi. No electrical outlets near the desk. I had to go buy a 25' drop cord...

If you are looking for a nice place to stay at a good price, this is the place. Never dealt with Americas Best Value Inns before but this wasn't a bad place to stay. Staff was friendly and helpful as my wife and I toured the town. This place even has an indoor swimming pool for those who like to...

Maybe Americas Best value, but that doesn't make it Americas best. The rooms were filthy, stains on the furniture (see photos). Breakfast in the morning was non existent apart from a bowl of fruit loops. To crown it all, the beds were very uncomfortable and the infamous Bell Tower, chimes away every 15 minutes, all night playing a spectacular piece...

Sometimes small hotels get a bad wrap. This hotel is small, quiet, and a little dated. But the hotel staff is friendly and the rooms are clean. The breakfast is small with very little selection but at least it's there. The showers do need replaced but you get what you pay for in that respect. Never had a problem for...

Being from here, when the Bell Tower Inn was built, it was great for the community and by far the best hotel in town. Being away for 25 years, coming back to visit I see that it has since aged and has been severely neglected. The odor in the hotel was horrible but the odor in our room was even...

Room was clean and seemed to be in a reasonable part of town. The gentleman at the counter was tired but helpful though he did seem a bit lost at first. I would stay at this hotel again giving the time I was looking to stay was only for 6 hours and didn't want to pay $120 for only a...

Historic hotel, and it is under renovations. The price is very good for the service you receive. This hotel is definitely on its way to becoming much better! Give it a chance. Everyone is very polite!
