Stopped here on 7/5/2013, passing thru from Midwest to CO. Rate was good, but everything else was not! Had to kill 4 flies in the room, the tv in the next room was on all night, and we heard it all night! Then at midnight, the folks above us came in,walking around, took a shower, turned on the exhaust fan,... More

As I have said before, finding “Pet Friendly” hotels can be challenging! Do understand that this is a “Road Hotel”. ABV was better than many other pet hotels I have stayed with. Large facility, 2 miles off of I-70 with the usual variety of chain restaurants and fast food options easily reached. No breakfast option with out choosing one of... More

It is an old very large (many rooms) 2-story in- town motel. Years ago it was a Best Western. We were travelling east from Colorado and picked up one of the coupon books at the Kansas Welcome Center and rest area just after entering Ks. from Co. on I-70. We were looking for something for one night enroute home where... More

Am Best Hays is the old Vagabond motel from the past. Built in the early 60s, its been the old standby for many years in the Hays area. This place is always clean, and realitive to this propertys' age its pretty impressive. We have stayed in this hotel many times over the last several years(we have family there) and its... More

ABV Inn was about what you would expect from a less expensive hotel. My wife and I were driving east on our return home from a whirlwind tour through Northern New Mexico and Southern Colorado. Hayes Kansas was a good distance to put in for the night. ABV is a little farther off the road than I expected, but not... More

Easy to find, comfortable, just what we were looking for late at night with our large dog and a cat. Made our reservation at the last minute and the check-in clerk was nice and helpful. Nicely decorated for the holidays, too!

Things are dated, but room and bed were fine. Ground floor room was comfortable. Fridge froze everything but we had a cooler. Staff were great. Let some items after checkout but went back a couple of hours later and front desk had everything.

Despite the fact that the building has been around for a long time, it was actually not bad inside. They had recently remodeled, it appeared. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable and even though we had a end room, next to the road, it was quiet. The WIFI worked fine. Didn't use the pool or the hot tub,... More

We stayed here the second night of our 3 week road trip across country. We had never stayed in an Americas Best Value Inn before but the price was right and most reviews were ok so we gave it a shot. The outside is pretty yucky looking - old and tired. The stairs going up to the second floor were... More
