“Close to Convention Center”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2014

I was in Phoenix for a convention being held at the Convention Center. The official convention hotel was $191/night. The price on ABVI was great and it was within walking distance of the Convention Center. During the day it was a nice walk in the sunshine and fresh air especially after being all day in meetings. We opted to take a $5 taxi after sunset as the area was a little deserted at night.

It is a short couple of blocks to the Light Rail where for $2 we rode to the Heard Museum for lunch. If we had had a few more days we would have used the Light Rail more.

The manager was very helpful…several of us were leaving on the shuttle for the airport before the scheduled breakfast…so he opened up the breakfast a half hour early on our departure day.

Room Tip: We had a street-side room and there was road noise, but it didn't keep us from getting a good ni...

We stayed in Americas best Value Inn for 2 nights and we had a positive experience. There were all useful utilities that normally are in a motel, but rooms are nicer than normal motels: furnitures, bed, sheets and blankets was modern and with attention to design.
Big TV, useful WIFI service.
At the reception Sam was very helpful giving us the necessary information on where to eat or what to visit in Phoenix. Moreover he's really a nice person to have a nice talk.
The price is a little higher than other motels I think but is motivated by a better service.
As I read in other reviews, I confirm that breakfast room in together with reception (as in other motels), but there is a small place where to sit for 2/3 people, and also ouside there is a nice openair corner to use when weather allows. In my opinion the breakfast offer all necessary (gauffre/milk/yogurt/coffee/tea/juices/fruits/eggs/sweets/cereals ecc).
Only one missing element: a boiler in the room to have a coffee or tea outside breakfast time!

We have stayed here in the past because we could walk to the Suns basketball game and the Diamondback baseball games. We were happy with the CLEAN room, it has a small refridge
and an iron, really anything you would need for a short stay. If we are staying a week we like to have a kitchen. The staff is super helpful, the rates are reasonable. Again location-location-location.

The owner could not do more to be helpful. We had a problem with the shuttle company and one call to him and he resolved it. The hotel room was very clean, great price. We walked to our conference and to tons of restaurants.

Great clean hotel
great location, walking distance to downtown, dining, entertainment, and transit train.
short distance to airport.

Free shuttle service from airport.

Family operated, rooms are small but perfect for 1-2 people.
Rooms have a modern feel to it.

This hotel was a good deal for a downtown hotel, within walking distance to the Convention Center and the start line of the Rock N Roll Marathon, and a free airport shuttle (although not the speediest service picking me up, they did call to keep me informed of their progress). Although not the nicest of surroundings, I (a single woman) felt safe walking during the day to the convention center then to the start. I could not speak to going out at night. The rooms were cleaner than some more expensive hotels I've been in, and were comfortable. Breakfast was great - waffles, juice, coffee, oatmeal, yogurt, fruit, hard-boiled eggs - again, as nice as some bigger hotels and free! The owner/manager was very friendly and helpful, even put out breakfast early for us runners. Thanks!
