Had an issue at check-in, as we had a Travelocity voucher, and they'd not notified the hotel (Americas Best Value Inns are individually franchised, so the manger was particularly concerned). However, he didn't make a big issue out of it, just emailed Travelocity. He was apologetic, but explained if he hadn't heard back from them by the morning he'd have to charge us. Glad I always take all relevant emails/web printouts with me as evidence of bookings, as the paperwork helped. We didn't hear from him, so assume it was all sorted.
Room more than adequate for our overnight needs; drinks available in the breakfast room 24/7. The breakfast was fine, filled a hole and got you on your way, and I love peanut butter and jelly. Try the pastries wrapped in cellophane in the fridge. Look unappetising, obviously preserved, but they're surprisingly tasty.
The manager provided a list of restaurants, mostly a drive away, so all in it was a good motel experience. There is even a pool, but not tested being mid-November.
One last tip; if approaching from Arizona (possibly Oatman & Route 66) you'll be on Route 95. Fill up at the Arco station a mile or two from the border (at junction with Co Hwy 351), and the 2nd last in Arizona. The last one, just before the border, is $0.80/gal more, and in California it's $1.50/gal more.
