Americas Best Value Inn Gaylord
Ranked #13 of 15 Hotels in Gaylord
Reviewed August 5, 2013

Worst hotel I've ever stayed at. From the scum line around the hottub to the moldy bagel at breakfast capped off by the un friendly and unconcerned staff one wonders how ABVI doesn't pull the franchise name from this hotel. Book elsewehere!

I am amazed that whoever bought this place remodeled part of this hotel but stopped short of buying a new entryway side door. It didn't even shut because it is so worn out. Does this innkeeper not realize that their patrons like some safety measures? People constantly smoking around the entrance. It looks so low class. The staff was pleasant and helpful but there seems to be too few employees. I still can't believe that the CEO of America's Best Value gave this hotel some kind of award in 2010. Shows how low their standards must be.

We stayed in there for one night & had a bad bad experience by sleeping in torn blankets, chipped walls undone old carpet, visibly torn out furniture.... no amenities. The staff was not so friendly. when i informed them about the torn blanket the housekeeping staff said thaat they will inform the management & that was it. the price charged seemed to be pretty high for the kind of property was maintained.

Room Tip: stay if there is no other option

The hotel is clean although the smell f cleaning products is somewhat overwhelming. The gentleman at the front desk was very unfriendly. I interrrupted him while he was watching TV in the back room and apparently he does not see customers as his first priority. Stayed at a competitor (Baymont Suites) on my return stay. It was less expensive , just as clean with friendly clerk at the front desk.

We found the hotel in need of a good cleaning! We had used priceline or we would have found another hotel. We had used pricline in the past and this was the first time we had ever been burned. The Lobby was full of their family/friends and they all must live at this hotel. We went to lock our door and the lock would not work. Had to use our suitcases to make our room safe!! They offered coffee but could not even make our way to the lobby as it was still full with their family/friends. Not that we would have gotten it as everything was dirty! Thankful that a gas station was next door. They have great coffee!! This hotel should be CLOSED!! I have emailed the hotel and priceline!!

Room Tip: Don't stay at this hotel all rooms are dirty!

I will start by saying that the bathroom was clean and sheets clean. We stayed here during Sept. They were obviously having a "family" reunion and they were always in the front lobby, morning, noon, nite, along w/ their select type of foods. If you had wanted to have breakfast in the am it would have been impossible as they were always sitting in the lobby which is where you were supposed to eat. I emailed the CEO & Cus. Relations and have never heard anything back. Also, had to go out and buy my own shampoo as the only thing they supplied was soap. Even if you have a pet traveling with you - go someplace else. Also, had to call front desk & tell them to pipe down as kids were crying & people slamming doors til aft 1 am.

Room Tip: Go to another motel!!
