They were kind enough to negotiate an $80 room rate ($98 with tax). It was late and we needed 2 rooms to accomodate our family of 6. When we got to the room we noticed a few ants. I thought no big deal. Then when my daughter pulled back the covers to climb in bed there were ants in the bed - yuk! But once again we moved on. Then we found more ants on counters, floors, beds. Too tired to make a change at this point. next morning we went to check out and noticed that they charged our card $98 plus tax bringing our total to $229. They refused to make the change and honor their agreed upon price. Needless to say we will not be returning to any Americas Best Value.

We paid $150 for a night's stay in March 2013. Needless to say, I should have slept in my SUV and saved myself not just the money, but the scratchy bug bites we received from the bedding. It was terribly rundown, but I can deal with that at a decent price if the cleanliness is there. The sink was held up by busted 2x4's. The bathroom flooring was missing several tiles and several more were chipped. The Wi-Fi didn't work. The air conditioner was broken in the first room we were put in so they put us in another that smelled like a dirty ashtray. Cigarette burns on the sheets, comforter and loveseat. The wallpaper was peeling off in multiple spots, the carpet was horrendously stained, the floor lamp was broken and the shade had burn holes in it. The mattress smelled like pee and the sheets had long black hairs all over it.
The young man at the front desk was alone on a busy night and was doing the best he could do with no help. The next day at check out, the family who owned it was working the desk and they were quite rude.
Save your money and pitch a tent! At least the bugs in the outdoors won't smell like cigarettes!

This hotel is really run down. The old wall paper is peeling off the walls. The stairs smell funny and when you go by the second floor they stink of smoke. The stair well is really beat up. The breakfast is very minimal. The room is ok, beds all right. Our reservation from Tingo said the room had a microwave and refridgerator but it didn't. Also no coffee machine. Do not recommend unless desperate to save money.

Room Tip: Go to a different hotel

Stayed here for 3 nights. I was an artist at the Franklin Main Street Festival...and all and all this was a fine hotel. VERY clean and beds were comfortable. It was in a safe area and lots of places around to grab a bite to eat. The Wi-Fi rarely worked... and the front desk told us it was because too many people were trying to access at once... Lame excuse... would rather hear the truth that they have bad WiFi... Breakfast was not great... no fresh fruit and few selections but we didn't stay here for the food. Bathtub was VERY slick... and it could use some type of traction strips because I had to hold on to the grab bar to take a shower. Didn't use the fridge in the room because of mold in the fridge... But... Staff was nice and it was Very Clean.

On our way home from spring break in Florida, we decided to stay in Franklin. Calling every hotel in the area, we found out that every hotel was booked for the weekend (some soccer tournament). We stopped at America's Best Value Inn hoping there might be an opening. Sure enough, we got the last room. To my great suprise, it was the cleanest room we have ever stayed in! Yes, the hotel was a little dated, but the place was spotless. On our way to Florida, we stayed in Franklin, in a much more upscale hotel with very dirty beds (goldfish crackers and popcorn kernels in the sheets). Thank you America's Best Value Inn! We had a lovely stay.

Had a clean room with fresh carpet, thick towels, old style T.V. and a weak mattress & box spring. O.K. for the price, A little sparse on breakfast choices, but adequate. Easy access from major interstate and large choice of eating establishments nearby.

Room Tip: Most rooms quiet due to good location

The wallpaper was coming off the wall so it was stapled to it. The small sofa had holes in the cushion. The bedspread had holes in it. The interior stairwell doors slammed very loudly when anyone used it. Our room was near one and it woke us up each time. I will try to stay somewhere else next time.
