“Horrible for a Bargain Traveller”
Reviewed September 5, 2007

I like to travel and stay in inexpensive motels since I don't spend much time there except to sleep. So I am used to economy lodging.
I have never written a motel review- and I have stayed at some bottom of the barrel motels- but this one was the worst.
Several days before our arrival, I called to confim my reservation and the manager- Sam- did not have record of it. I called the America Best Value Inn corporate offices twice-- they told me they would follow up and call me back but never did. I then both emailed and faxed my reservation to Sam. The next day I called to confirm he had received my reservation and he did and confirmed it.
When I arrived at the motel, Sam told me he had no record of my reservation. I showed him the confimation and reminded him that I confirmed and faxed the reservation days before. He still refused to honor my reservation.(I had travelled for 10 hours from the west coast woke up at 2:30 am to catch an early flight-and had no patience for this). The person before me claimed he was overcharged and other guests were disgruntled. I knew that Sam did not want to honor my reservation because I booked it several months ago at a low rate. I told Sam that Americas Best Value Inn told me he would have to pay to put me up in another motel if he did not have a room for me. Then, miraculously, he found a room. I reserved a nonsmoking room and he gave me a smoking room. I had called and asked for a coffeemaker a week before and he told me I could have one. Then at the motel, he refused to give me one.
The microwave in the room did not work. My boyfriend carried it back to the "reception" area and Sam told me he would get me one tomorrow. I said no I need one now....back and forth...and I finally got one.
The room was dirty. My towel had several large orange stains on them-- actually I think it had not been washed-- it was food or something. The fridge and microwave were filty. The towels had holes in them. My bed had a huge sag in the middle.
We asked for ice and Sam stuck his hand in a bag of ice and then put it in our bucket-- needless to say we had no ice the whole weekend.
After a day out -- literally gone 12 hours-- we came back to our room to find the door open-- the maid did not securely close it.
I would not stay here again. And I would not stay at an America Best Value Inn again. This is the second one we have stayed at (the first was in Lancaster, PA) and they were both very bad experiences.

This place was the worst place I have ever stayed at (I have traveled throughout the continental U.S.). This hotel was musty, the bed mattress was old and worn out, the mini refrigerator was moldy, the staff did not clean the room or give you a change of towels at all. The ice machine was in a room with gas cans and lawn equipment. The continental breakfast (coffee, tea, Tang, Oreo cookies and one mini mini muffin) was in the office with 2 chairs and small counter top for use for the whole hotel. This place was disgusting !!!

I'll let my photos do the talking. I paid $86 for THIS?!?!? Well, at 11pm after 10 hours of driving and finding no bugs in the funky looking beds, we stayed. Do not be as foolish as we were. Do NOT stay here! It is really nasty here and they don't clean the rooms AT ALL. We found some woman's shirt on the floor behind the TV!!!
Look at the photos and you will see what a gross place this is.

We stayed in an end unit and it was noticably larger than most Motel
rooms I've seen. There was a small fridge and a microwave in the
room. Room was clean and suitably furnished. This is not the Ritz and if
you're looking for more than just motel lodging at a reasonable price,
go elsewhere.

UHG! Upon entering the hallway to the room, you can detect the aroma of mildew---an old building! The room upon entering, was acceptable. I kicked off my shoes after an exhausting day of sight seeing, went to the area between the beds, barefooted, when something sharp stuck my foot. Upon investigation, I found someone else's toenails on the fairly new carpet. When the bedspread was pulled back, their was dried blood on the underside of the bedspread. Their were long black hairs on the sink and floor in the bathroom. The female staff member who ran the desk, was very indifferent to us, and was more interested in reading her novel than our qustions . She made us feel as if we were really imposing on her if she had to stop reading---god forbid we make her lose her place in her book.

No coffee maker in the room, no shampoo and no tissues. Pool area looked like a bomb went off. Very poor continental breakfast, coffee, chocolate chip cookies, oriole cookies and hostess muffins and orange juice. No breakfast area. Cleaned room using way to much pine cleaner.
72 hrs. cancel notice is a bit much.

My room was large, clean, quiet and comfortable. Cable TV and coffeemaker. Just a small place, not big and glamorous, but still close to the falls and casino, and exceptionally cheap. I would highly recommend this motel.
