Older motel, small room with king bed, linen in dresser draws, ice machine out of order, the motel was full each night. It was quiet had juice and water and sweet rolls in room. For that area the price was fair.

I was in the hotel for 2 weeks in the month of November 2016 and 1 thing I noticed and made me very upset was the housekeeping department used the guest room as a storage, taking room away from people. We are paying for the full room and not to share with the housekeeping department. The T.V stand are full...

Had to go to Palo Alto on an last minute notice and Americas Best Value Inn had vacancies. Stuff was very friendly and kind. The room was very neat and extremely clean! I'd defiantly stay there again. Close to a lot of places, too.

Hotel is nice, it's on the cheaper side of hotels in the area, but inside rooms are updated with new furniture and flat screen tvs. Front desk help was really nice. I was pulling a trailer with me and he let me park it right in front of office, as there parking lot is really small.

This is the perfect place for spending my nights after long hours of work. you have everything in the room while you are away from home. A home for me when I am away from the home. I highly recommend my friends and family members to choose this place when you are in Palo Alto.

I was looking for an hotel with a good quality and a fair price and I can say that I could find it. Good bed, good bathroom, lcd tv, great variety of channels, laundry, parking lot in front of room. It's some blocks distant from whole food market, Walmart and target.

I stayed here while my apartment was being fumigated. Overall, the hotel itself was fine--decor was really outdated, but fine for my purposes since I was mainly just using it to sleep and shower. (It certainly would not be my choice for vacation purposes.) My main issue was with the front desk staff. The alarm clock in the room didn't...

For the price I guess you can't really complain, but this is a place to lay your head, and no more. Walls are paper-thin; I could hear all the conversation from the room next door and hear them move around the room. When I was on the phone at 5am due to jet lag I found myself whispering so as...
