“"Run...."”
Reviewed June 4, 2012

The staff was very nice, but didnt leave a secure feeling for me... rooms had sliding glass doors that opened to parking lot..and ours did not lock.. in window ac units with spiders and nonfunctioning.. nine year old son afraid to walk down hall towards room because it was dark and had low ceilings with some kind of wiring running along side top of ceiling.. doors to room didnt quite close all the way of course room was dank and dusty. Old... and I mean old worn out furniture in room, not at all like pictures shown..and dirty.. stayed in room approximately 20 mins after contemplating whether catching something, being bit by something or falling victim to home invasion..worth the cost. Immediately requested refund and got one, surprisingly without a fight and left promptly...

Room Tip: maybe upstairs?

I have stayed in this Hotel each time I visited Houston for more than five years continuously.
There you find a home away from your home. The price is moderate, location is superb, proximity to shops, Resturants, Banks and a quite back road for evening walks.

The staff treat and take you as one of their own. Moerover they go the extra mile to ensure that you get all the assistance for whatever you needs beside the regular services.

The Business Manager and the entire staff make staying at the Americas Best Value Inn an enjoyable experience that makes you want to repeat staying there each time you visit. It does not really matter the purpose of your visit, as a first timer or old customer, you get the same homely tretament which is hard to get from other hotels of its category.

I always recommend it to my friends and have had several of them stayed there particularly during the Offshore Technology Conference each year. Try it, I am sure you will like and enjoy your stay there. You also get shuttle bus rides to the shops and malls around the hotel, the City Train Terminal and the Houston Medical Ccentre as well. They have also done a lot of renovation works which is good for their image.

Room Tip: If want to have a view of the street, them the rooms in the front and upstairs are better. If you th...

This hotel is not the best you can find. It is old and shows a lot of wear. We were there for the Houston Stockshow and Rodeo. It is real handy to Reliant Park. The price was higher than the value. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Pieces of the ceiling were flaking off and cracked. If it had been cheaper than it was, I probably wouldn't worry about it at all, but it was as expensive as a really nice hotel.

Do not stay at this motel! It is in very poor shape and safety and security is a concern. The carpet was disgusting, the blankets were like thin sponges, the bathroom was moldy and had obviously been flooded. People were smoking in the rooms despite them being labeled non-smoking. The smoke alarm was even ripped out of the wall in the room we were in. The eggs were rotten at the breakfast bar. This place is not worth even the low rate it charges.

I made three trips to Houston recently and each time stayed at this hotel. And what a pleasure it was. If you are looking for a good location, modest price and a comfortable stay this is an excellent choice. The staff has been very carefully chosen. The manager Shirley Perry keeps things well organized and running smoothly. If you have a problem she will help you solve it. Corey Phillips continues this same good service at the front desk. The generous availability of the shuttle service is extremely helpful for getting around town whether on business or for sightseeing. The driver Harold gets you where you need to be or want to be and does so graciously. The continential breakfast is generous and an attendant watches over things to make sure everything is well supplied. The rooms are quiet, clean and well maintained. I'd say all in all this is a very good value for the money and overseen by a congenial and helpful staff.

Staff and people were great! Wanted an inexpensive place as we had 23 people (church group) and had to keep cost down and this place fit the bill. The location was very good and all comments from everyone in our group were positive.

This is an excellent hotel if you are on a tight budget! The rooms are cheaper. The location is excellent. It is near restaurants and other businesses like Dennys, The Golden Corral, McDonalds, Starbucks, Walgreens, and other places. A mall is located within three miles of the hotel. This is an older hotel but it was clean and the bed linens were fresh. Our group of 40+ was pleased. We only had two complaints which were quickly addressed by the staff. The staff was very friendly and eager to make us comfortable. We were able to go to Dennys by shuttle as late as 11:00 pm. The continental breakfast was excellent. There was a great variety of foods and an attendant who constantly checked to make sure we did not run out of anything. The staff, especially Ms. Shirley Perry, made us feel like they were very happy that we chose their hotel and they did everything in their power to make us feel right at home. We used the banquet room for a prayer service (at no additional cost). This hotel is an older hotel with a bit of nostalgia and some current upgrades. Our group thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: Rooms in the main part of the hotel are best. They are entered from inside the hotel. Some of the...
