1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

My husbands job moved from Moberly, MO to Majorsville, WV, but had to stop at Atlasburg, PA for a required drug screen. We drove on Labor Day for around 9 hours+ nonstop. We were in need of a place to stop and rest. After calling near by hotels in Washington, PA we decided to stay here because it was the cheapest. Why pay $100 when we checked in at 11pm and checked out at 6am, but I wish we would of stayed somewhere else. There was stroooooong cigarette smell as soon as we walked in when we asked for a non smoking room. Bed covers where damp and cold. One of the pillows had a hole. Toilet was filthy. Room had a microwave and mini fridge that we didn't use. T.V didn't work. My husband and I had to take 3hr shifts to make sure no one tried to break into our truck due to we had aloooooot of personal stuff. We will never stay here again. Oh and the bathroom sink was clogged and carpet was reeeeeaally dirty. and lets not mention their funky ice machine, it's old and moldy. Motel 6 is nearby and a little bit cheaper, but they were full that night we where in town.

Room Tip: Motel 6 is close by, a bit cheaper, and waaaay much better.

Not wanting to pay $100. per night at a motel, we picked American's Best Value Inn. In my 50+ years of traveling since being married we have stayed in THREE motels that were worse than this one, but it definitely does rate in our LOWER range of motels. The bed slept well, the TV worked, and the small fridge/freezer worked to keep soft drinks cold. The bathroom was NOT the cleanest, but passable, NO place to put soap around the shower when showering. Window curtains would not stay together when shut so a small open gap near the bottom stayed open. The door had a crack at the bottom that was almost 2 Inches wide. Man, in the winter with blowing snow, you would have snow clear in on the floor. The continental breakfast consisted of a muffin, juice, & coffee, a far cry from most motels. now days.
The office check in was ??? REALLY, in THIS day of technology, they still WRITE OUT your Credit Card info on a Card and use the old pressure impression machine for copying your Credit Card. I hope we have no trouble with this place. The manager and lady was friendly enough and did speak English.
You get what you pay for.

The room was clean. the bed relatively comfortable. the price seemed right. The surprises keep coming. at check -in the room was more than listed on-line. Two days after our stay an extra charge showed up on my on-line bank statement. Will not be staying there again, as I hate lies.

Room Tip: Call, DO NOT book on-line.

I was doing a weekend road trip on a very limited budget. After calling other hotels in the area, I tried America's Best. I admit, after hearing that others were charging $100-$150 a night, and at least one, not even giving a discount for AAA, I was leary that the cost per night was $57. It was Anita's professionalism and courtesy on the phone that convinced me to check it out. I was afraid of what I might find. However, it was nicer than some other hotels I had stayed in, and had paid more for. The room was clean. I checked for bed bugs(as I do everywhere I stay, traveling with my can of bedbug spray). There was no evidence of any kind. They offer a few breakfast items, which I did not partake of, so I cannot offer a critque on that. It was not top of the line, but it was more than adequate for anyone looking for a reasonable price and a place to sleep. The rest of the staff that I had met, were just as courteous.

Made the mistake of not making reservations at a nice hotel before going to Washington. Every place we stopped were booked because of a ballgame and other activities going on in the area. However, I must mention we never checked the Ramada, read my other review and you will know why. This was the only place that had a room and the price was very reasonable. I can see why now. To save me time in typing all you have to do is read the other reviews of people who have stayed here. My review will just mirror theirs. My advice, sleep in car.

Room Tip: unless they have good rooms they save for someone, i cant give a good tip.

On a drive home from Orlando Florida we decided to stop at another Best Value Inn because of the great experience we had with the one in Beckley WV. What a shock!!! It was horrible, the kids actually cried and wanted to leave. We checked the sheets and the beds for bugs and they were clean but that was about the only thing that was clean. The furniture was dusty, the comforter and carpets were filthy, the walls were dirty, there was mould on the curtains. At this point after driving 16 hours I was just too tired to go looking for somewhere else to stay so we stayed. In the morning we packed up and left as quick as possible, was looking forward to the coffee to get me started on the drive home but even that was horrible. Not all places are the same I guess, I do not suggest you stay here.
