CONS: Left over used soap in shower from previous travelor, Dead flies and very dusty top of TV cabinet, door deadbolt did not latch, several cigarette burns in sheets, extreme dust behind night stand (had to plug in my phone charger), musky smell, 1 MONTH old bagels (plastic clip on bagel bag is dated, but perhaps they were previously frozen bagels), waffle mix was heavily watered down, tv remote had no battery cover so the batteries kept falling out, shower head was too low (and I'm 5'3"), no make ready/freshening up for multiple night stay
PROS: quiet, fast & easy internet connection, no evidence of bed bugs, a/c was cold, Shampoo, Conditioner & Lotion were of high quality brand names (Garnier & Suave)
I have never stayed at an Americans Best Value (this location was previously called 5 star inn), and my experience at this location will keep me from giving this chain another chance. I will only use this chain if I have no other options.
Breakfast was offered from 6-10 am. At 9:10 am, there was no longer any waffle mix and the front desk would not make more, even though I spotted 3 cases of waffle mix in the corner. Dissapointing, but we just grabbed one donut and went out for breakfast. On our second morning, we found the waffle mix so watered down that the waffle mix had seperated from the water and sizzled as soon as you poured it on the waffle maker. I had to use four cups and drain off the seperated water to make one usable cup. The absolute worst breakfast I have ever experienced while traveling. Bring your own poptarts and have a better breakfast than what this location offers!
The room was, by far, the dirtiest motel room I have ever seen. Dust bunnies everywhere! I believe my 18 yr old son could clean a room better! The bathroom had left over used soap and the bathroom wall had a piece of a bandaid stuck to it. Wear flip flops or DARK socks while staying here, at all times.
It is a shame that the owners of Americans Best Value Inn would allow their name to be used by the management in Bonham. Travel Lodge is better.
Please do not stay at this place with children or with your female significant other! Take her to the next city or look up the local B&B.
