Americas Best Value Inn
Ranked #11 of 11 Hotels in Geneva
Reviewed October 6, 2012

Overall the place was not that bad. it was reasonably clean and tidy. I understand that I did not book a night at the Hilton, so I expected of having a couple of stains here and there, and a bit of a tatted and torn feel to it. The front office is very clean and the family at the front desk is very polite and friendly. This hotel would have gotten a 3 star review, but the breakfast that was served won me over. I did not expect a real breakfast to be served, that had juice, bagel, cereal, eggs, and sausage etc. I would recommend staying here if you plan on eating the breakfast that they serve. (side note: I have not been there for over a year so you might want to call to see if they are still doing the breakfast)

I wouldn't let my dog walk around in this dump. It is absolutely filthy. Mold on bathroom floor, shower curtains and tile. Someone's hair remained all over the bathroom. Dirty bathroom walls. Dirty carpet. There was no hot water; unless you count lukewarm water for a about two minutes. Invest in bleach and other cleaning products and hire cleaning staff. It doesn't even deserve one star.

Room Tip: Don't stay here if you value cleanliness.

If you are a fan of mold and soil, this is the place for you! The tile in the bath area hadn't been cleaned in a long time! Not a good experience. Stay away if at all possible!
Rooms were blocked out for a group and they had us spread all over the complex. Killing spiders in the room kept us busy when we arrived. The rooms haven't been updated in years. Lot's of patch work maintainence.

This is rated as a 2-star hotel, but is not even 1-star in my opinion, actually an old and cheap motel!! Mine is a non-smoking room but smells cigarette. My friends found hairs on the beds. Bathtubs are like 40 years old!! Furnitures are old and out-dated. Breakfast area very small with only 4 smail tables, compared to the number of rooms it has. And it's price is not cheap!! Can't think of anything good about this motel. Will never stay here again!!

This room was very dirty from the start. When rolling the blankets back i noticed there was hair in the bed that made me think the sheets where not changed from the last guest. The bathroom tub tiles was all mold. There was no hair drier in the room. When opening the dresser drawer had crumbs in it. I was charged extra when booking this reservation and it did not show on the receipts when i left i found it on my credit card bil a few days later. Will not go here again!

We were late in deciding to go to the Finger Lakes Wine Festival, so our hotel choices were limited. We booked the Americas Best Value Inn, and afterward thought we had made a mistake by reading the reviews.
They must have new owners, because this was a clean, well taken care of hotel. Our room had a king size bed, desk and chair, refrigerator freezer and a relaxing chair with a footrest. And the air conditioning was blowing ice cold! It was so quiet we got almost ten hours sleep.
The next morning we enjoyed their free continental breakfast, with make your own waffles.

Room Tip: The rooms in building three are somewhat newer.

My wife, baby and I used the Inn as a base for shopping at the nearby outlet in Waterloo. Whilst the place is hardly 5 star, it was very adequate for our purposes. The room was big, clean and well-equipped. The staff were friendly. I would recommend the Inn as good-value budget accommodation.

Room Tip: Avoid the old rooms - insist on a room in the newer wing.
