Americas Best Value Inn
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Iola
Reviewed February 1, 2014

This Hotel does a nice job of taking care of their guests. Tina showed much care from the time I checked in to when I left. The rooms were very clean. The parking lot had plenty of room to park the truck that I drive. I will definitely stay here again when in the area.

Don't believe the story about bugs! We have stayed at this property 3 times in the last year and have never seen a pest. The rooms have always been clean and on our most recent visit were freshly painted and updated with new beds and bedding. The sheets were very soft, the bath towels very good and everything was spotless. My only suggestion would be to update the TV's to flat screens & provide a nightstand for the second queen bed. It's also a very quiet hotel. We will definitely stay here for future visits.

My husband and I along with our 2 young boys stayed at this hotel while visiting my Mother in Law from a small nearby town. When we checked into our room our 9 year old son opened the bedside table drawer and found an empty WILD TURKEY liquer bottle. As the evening wore on we noticed little tiny bugs which my husband identified as termites, we had to shut lights off and turn the bathroom light on to draw them out of the area of the beds. This was not a very nice stay for us. We were also told that the swimming pool was heated and it was not. we all had wanted to go swimming but was unable to.

We stayed here after having a horrendous bed bug experience at the Super 8 down the road near the highway and to our shock, this hotel also had bugs.

Dead ants lined the bathroom tile floor. Why don't Iola KS hotels clean their rooms!?

We stopped here on the way home from a trip to Missouri. The rooms were large and very comfortable. At the time we stayed it was not yet an Americas Best but I agree with some of the other writers, the motel does need some updating. That being said, it was still a nice place to stop and the resturant was right there in the parking lot. I did not notice the noise and my wife said she did not notice it either. I am hard of hearing so I trust her on the noise level.

Room Tip: Get a room to the back. There is a lot of business at the resturant so the rooms at the back are qu...

I stay at this hotel about 5-6 nights per year when I ride the Prairie Sprit Trail. Overall views: The hotel has several things going for it... off highway, big rooms, vaulted ceilings, large lobby, big parking lot and the best resterant in Iola next door (Greenery Inn).

Where the hotel fails: The exterior has not been updated since the 1960's, it gets very noisy in the evenings (I just leave the bathroom fan on all night to compensate for this), the restrooms have not been updated since the 1960's. The property is in need of a solid update to justify the rate.

The breakfast was above average, checkin was easy with no problems. I did not try the internet, so I cannot confirm internet speeds. The air conditioning cooled to my comfort level. It did cycle on and off a lot, and there was no setting for the fan to remain on when the air conditioner has cycled.

I really like this property and it could could be a really nice hotel with some money spent on updating the hotel. (The Greenery Inn has proven this can work in Iola). I did not feel that $66 a night rate was a value at this point. If it wasn't for the this resterant and the proximenty to the trail, I would stay at the Super 8.

Beware: They did have information for Americinn on the lobby, and it looks like they are getting ready to change to this franchise.

Room Tip: Try to stay to the back of the property to help reduce guest noise and traffic noise.
