“An Outdoor Pool in Salina”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

The Americas Best Value Inn in Salina has one of the few outdoor pools in town -- refreshing on a summer's day. The rooms at this older establishment (a relic from Howard Johsons heyday) have been nicely renovated, are reasonably clean and come at an affordable price. A modest continental breakfast is provided and pets are allowed. Shopping is close by as well as several restaurants. In short, good for a one night stay.

While searching for rooms for four workers for 2 weeks in Salina I came across this motel because it was cheap. After disregarding reviews about the rude owner/manager I booked them anyway. Upon arrival it appeared to be filthy and the manager insisted that I pay the entire 2 weeks in advance with no refund or adjustments. When I said I was uncomfortable with that agreement He became extremely rude and got in my face about how he doesn't work for charity. I believe he knew that few customers would stay more than a single night let alone 2 weeks. Better bring your own clean sheets.

Unable to understand the staff. Thankfully they find allow my dog. I was thankful it was by places to go for entertainment and food. Not bad on price either. And it was clean. Plus I am thankful for the lock boxes they had in the room.

Nothing fancy about this motel, but for one night it was OK. The clerk was extremely friendly and helpful. The room had a musty smell so we lit a candle to cover it. The bed was comfortable. The motel was close to several restaurants.

The young lady at the counter was friendly but the owner had an attitude problem. We were not allowed to view the room prior to registering due to state law. The furniture was old, light in color with the decoration of crayon by some aspiring young artist. The carpet was dirty and there were two spiders. We asked to have the room changed and we were accommodated. My husband forgot to return to original room key and the owner called to inquire. I apologized and told her that I would bring it to her. She said she would come to get it. When she arrived, she had a nasty look on her face and asked about the spiders (their location, etc.) because she checked and could not find them. Her attitude and tone were far from pleasant. I wouldn't stay here again.

Rooms were updated and staff was very helpful. The location is great as it is close to restaurants and shopping centers. The outside of the hotel needed some work but once you got into the room it was a nice surprise.
