“Went from "okay" to "no way"”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Exterior is uninviting and run down...not like in the pictures. Rooms definitely did not look like the pictures. Pool was tiny...an oversize bathtub suitable only for a quick dip. Room was okay. Bed was comfortable. The new hardwood floors looked nice...except for the bugs on them. Would not want my family to stay here. Thankfully I was alone and only staying one night.

Decided to stay here because of great price but was pleasantly surprised on how nice the room was clean and nicely updated the only problem we had was there was a cricket in our room which we got rid of ourselves the manager took off six dollars on our second day there I will definitely consider using this hotel again when I stay harlengen hotel was very convenient to Brownsville.

Recently updated rooms with more modern bedding and hardwood floors. No clock or coffeemaker in room but continental breakfast was good. Usual food but was surprised by a Belgian waffle maker. Located centrally near all local attractions. Did not encounter sandpaper towels as previous guest did. I think they have been replaced with better quality linens. I would like to see the employees wear name tags because I had a hard time recognizing them from guests.

Room Tip: Mattresses were hard but we were able to tolerate them.

So we stayed here on a Friday night, everyone one else near by was sold out. The front desk person was very nice and helpful. The office did smell of curry ewww, but the front desk clerk was very nice. It was late around 11pm we still got in to a room. When we got into the room there was a funny smell to the room, but we fixed it by spraying some of the wifes perfume. The rooms were nice a spacious with wood floors and an nice big TV. The towels are really rough, in the morning we got up and there was a small spider in the restroom. which were my only complains. Not the best but as a last minute stay it was fair. Ohh and the price was the lowest around the area.

We moved here after a terrible experience with a hotel in South Padre Island (see my other reviews for more info).

The hotel works - nice spacious rooms - suitable for business or vacation travel at a VERY reasonable price.

Great service - the TV remote was promptly fixed when non-operative. Note to management - the towels are like sandpaper. Maybe some fabric softener in your laundry?

Would definitely stay again.

I had a bad experience at another Americas Best Value Inn, but everything was great at this one in Harlingen. Very reasonable price for an exceptionally clean, comfortable room with plasma TV, free internet, microwave and frig in the room, iron, hairdryer, and free continental breakfast. The folks who run this place are very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this hotel in Harlingen, TX.

Clean, large, comfortable and quiet room in Harlingen. Rooms have microfridge and microwave. Looks like an older property that has been given a really good update. Good lighting in rooms. Convenient working area w/ high-speed access; caveat, firewall doesn't permit sending email. Convenient, safe parking right in front of each room. Really liked privacy sheer drape that allows you to open room drape yet doesn't permit people walking by to look in. Decent cold breakfast w/ fresh fruit. Maid service extremely helpful. No laundry facilities available to guests. Good accomodations for great price. Would stay here again.
