The family that runs the inn was most pleasant. However, the photos on the website were deceiving. The hotel was extremely run down. Hallways, rooms, and *clean* linens smelled like stale cigarette smoke. Carpet/cloth-covered furniture was stained. Bathroom/ceiling had severe water damage. Shower spout came to chest level. Toilet ran...and ran...and ran.... Vanity barely attached to wall. Mini fridge never worked. Box spring was made of two-by-fours. Half the lights were burnt out. Corporate gives the franchise "four checks," or the highest rating. We shudder to think what Best Value's standard is for "one check." If you dare stay/sleep, we recommend buying flip flops and $2.88 towels from the WalMart across the street first.
