Americas Best Value Inn & Suites - Wine Country
Ranked #19 of 25 Hotels in Santa Rosa
Reviewed July 19, 2013

We stayed here for two nights in early July and were highly skeptical when we finally found the place. It is well hidden. The girl who worked the desk could have been somewhat more friendly. That aside, the room was old but functional if you don't plan spending a lot of time there. The free breakfast is served in the lobby with the idea of taking it back to your room on a tray. Beware, the tray is in your room so take it with you! The good news is that after a few wine tastings, the place looked better. The price was right and we were next to a Starbucks and a Trader Joes. I'm not sure I would stay here again but it was where we wanted to be.

This was our first experience ever with that chain. Name sounds promising. Well, as we quickly learned, it does not mean much.
The only positive thing about the place is that it's in Santa Rosa, not too far from Napa and Somoma.
It's far from downtown, so not much around. Swimming pool was closed, because of the law about not having an handicap ramp. I call BS on this, this is summer!!!
The room was stinky, like if some cat (or dog) had urinated in all corners.
From the outside, it looks ok, that's it.
As anything around, you pay much more than it's worth because you're close to the 2 major wine valleys of CA.
Not saying that you should not go there, just set your expectations low and you'll be OK.
Maybe the owner should sell his huge Mercedes and spend some money on refreshing the rooms. It makes you feel being taken for granted.

Your average motel in a good location. Rooms clean and quiet and food nearby within walking distance. Staff friendly but no coffee etc in the morning until almost 7:00. Pool is green and not usable so do not count on it!

After reading some of the reviews of the budget hotels in the area we decided on this place on the strength of the reviews. I have to say I was disappointed.
The rooms have paperthin walls and poor fitting doors. With people arriving at all hours of the night and as soon as the arrivees stopped the leavers started. Each dragged cases and banged doors (they had no choice it was the only way to close them) which you could hear all night. Not that I was asleep as the in room fridge made as much noise as a tractor running and the light from the cable box was burning my retinas out being so bright and so close to the bed.
We have stayed in many hotels in this price bracket on our trip and this was far from god value. For the same money we have got pools, lifts and sleep.

My wife and I met up with two other couples for an overnight stay. When we entered our room, we immediately noticed a couple of flies buzzing around over the bed. There was a chemical smell that seemed like an attempt to cover up a smoke smell (non-smoking room). When we opened one of the dresser drawers, we found 2 trash bags filled with empty beer cans.

I went to the front desk. The clerk was very apologetic and immediately gave us another room. The new room was much better and as expected for this hotel class; clean, no smells, and no flies. We checked our friends' rooms and they were great, as well. So, we'll consider the first room an anomaly, due to the behavior of the prior guests. We did notice later that a cleaning crew had been dispatched to that room, so they appeared to make a serious effort to correct the issues we found.

Because of the immediate and appropriate staff response and the fact that the other 3 rooms were good, I can say that we were happy with our stay and would likely stay here again when in the area. The rooms were very quiet.

We didn't take advantage of the breakfast, but it looks like a typical continental style for this hotel class.

Because we have stayed with America's Best Value Inns before, we got a 15% discount which made this a good price in an area where prices tend to be high...California Wine Country. There are two Best Value Inns in Santa Rosa --this was the Hopper St. location. We had a Kingbed room, upstairs (although we oldsters prefer down) and there were fridge and microwave, in-room coffee, internet access and cable TV. The room was attractive and the bed comfortable, and all very clean. Great shower/bath, good hefty towels, and wall dispenser for shampoo, conditioner and body gel--so much easier than fumbling with tiny bottle tops or trying to tear open a packet.
We found the room noisy and chilly in the morning, then realized we'd not closed the window all the time we were there!
Check-in was fine, continental breakfast adequate but "take it to your room." Super fine coffee/cocoa/etc. dispenser! Leaving the parking lot next am was tricky: commuters line up fiercely at the adjoining Starbucks! Best to drive out the side exit.

We found the rooms nice with all the facilities like microwave , refrigerator and all basic amenities. Breakfast was free and had decent choices. Swimming pool was there but not cleaned. All the rooms are positioned side by side so it can be noisy at a times. Good location of you are visiting to Safari west or calistoga - this is towards the north of Santa Rosa and near or those places.
