Americas Best Value Inn Grand Forks
Ranked #20 of 28 Hotels in Grand Forks
Reviewed August 3, 2014

This is a lower end older motel in Grand Forks. The price is about $60.00 plus taxes.

The room has a fridge, microwave, blow dryer and most other things you'd want in a motel.

The front staff are good.

The rooms are clean.

Our bed squeaked a lot with little movement.

The entryway to the street is in bad repair. This needs to be fixed.

This motel is a little further away from shopping and restaurants.

Many construction workers stay here.

They have a continental breakfast which is just adequate. No hot items. Toast, cereal, some pastries, oranges, juice and coffee.

Overall no complaints.

Room Tip: Try to get a room near an entrance way to make it easier bringing in your luggage.

Dear Ken J,

Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to send us your thoughts. Feedback such as yours help us continually improve our location. Our goal is to offer 5-star service at an unbeatable rate with no compromise in amenities. All of our staff is required to undergo and complete our Gold Standard training and are certified Service Specialists to maximize your guest experience. We are in the process of pouring new concrete throughout our lot now as the winter melt is rough on all roads and lots throughout Grand Forks. We are also updating the TVs in all of our rooms to new Samsung flat screens. Many chose our location over more costly locations complimenting our state-of-the-art X-Stream wireless which keeps all of our guests TRULY connected during their stay with us. We love rewarding loyal, repeat guests such as yourself with free nights, so ask about our local frequent stay punch card the next time you are in town. We look forward to seeing you next time your travels bring you this way!

Warm regards,
Americas Best Value Inn Team

My husband and I stayed at the ABVI in Grand Forks, on the nights of July 30 and 31, 2014. This is the third year in a row that we have stayed here in the summer.
We like the location; and the price is fair.
We arrived at the hotel about 1:00 p.m., and our reserved room wasn't ready yet, but that was no problem, as we went out to have lunch.
We were happy with our room which was clean; the desk staff and cleaning staff were all friendly and helpful; the breakfast was what we expected, based on previous visits. The Danish pastries are good; there is fruit, cereal, waffles, toast, and coffee was always available.
The WiFi connection was excellent.
When we arrived at our entrance into the motel (G), the ground was covered with hundreds of cigarette butts. In the morning, I mentioned it to two fellows who were at the desk. (I didn't get either of their names). Within minutes, one of the fellows was outside with a broom, and swept up the entire mess. I saw him go to one of the other entrances as well. What great service!!!
We enjoyed our stay and will definitely return to this hotel on our next visit to Grand Forks.

Americas Best Value Inn is very convenient and clean. Close to UND where our kids attend college. Personnel are always cheerful, friendly and profession
al. Continental breakfast is good. I would recommend this motel to anyone who need a good night sleep with feeling comfortable and safe.

Dear Greg and Kay,

We thank you so much for your kind words! Our goal is to be the friendliest, cleanest hotel in Grand Forks at a great price without sacrificing amenities. We hope you got to take advantage of the fridge/microwave and coffee pot in the room or enjoy our X-Stream internet package! Many enjoy the onsite guest laundry facilities too. We are happy to hear you enjoyed our location as it doesn't get much more convenient than right off of the only two highways to go through Grand Forks. We love rewarding regular returning guests such as yourself so ask about our 11th Night Free program at the desk when you return!

Warm regards,
Americas Best Value Inn Team

I come back here once a year in July. The rooms are nice and reasonably quiet. The continental breakfast is good. The price is very good. The WiFi works great.

It is close to UND and within 3 miles of of most things you would want to see in Grand Forks.

Most of the time we use your facility because we have to travel far for hospital care and surgery, America's Best Value Inn is convenient, clean, and moderately priced. This Inn is also within close proximity to the University of North Dakota and the Fighting Sioux hockey arena, as well as its theatre and art museum. The Alerus Center is on the same stretch of highway where concerts, shows, and other forms of entertainment are held.

Room Tip: We like to be in the main facility especially when it's winter because we don't have to run...

The employees are friendly and helpful in your needs. It's a relaxing atmosphere. Little off the beaten path but can park approximately 10 trucks. The front desk personnel are cheerful and friendly. Front desk personnel Marlee has to be the best employee at the location she is vary helping.
