Located just off I-70, set back from the street so if you aren't watching for the sign you're gonna drive right past it. The room was very clean and comfortable, outside and parking lot could use a good clean up. Overall, excellent value for a low price, would stay again.

The Americas Best Value Inn was a good reservation for a one night road trip. The room was clean and quiet. It is conveniently located off Interstate 70. The staff was helpful. Overall this was a good value.

The updated room was clean and functional, as the hotel used to be a Super 8. Microwave, refrigerator, and tub/shower. $49 got you a very clean smallish queen room. Surprisingly good bed! Decent number of TV offerings and free wi-fi. Basic breakfast with cook your own waffles, cereal, toast, sweet roll. This is another very solid property in the Americas...

Checked into the motel room around 2 before heading to the college. Took a nap before dinner. Slept solid on the full size bed. Woke up around six in the morning as travelers began to wake up. The shower head was lower than expected. No taller than five feet. Skipped on breakfast, but saw a waffle maker. Go to Munchers...

Checked in to a room at west end of building at 3:00PM, outside temperature around 100. A/C was off so turned it on and went to eat. Three hours later room was still hot. The A/C worked just enough to give us hope. There was no maintenance man on site but desk clerk tried to reset A/C. Finally at 10:00PM...

A clean motel (was a Super8) with low prices. Staff was helpful and location was reasonably quiet. Room was very clean and had plenty of space. Breakfast had briskets and gravy and some cold cereal. No meat or eggs to be seen.

In fact, when I checked the Super 8 website, they still had our reservation as current. I had to call and cancel the reservation with Super 8,...

I needed to break up a long drive with my dog and took a chance here given the limited options of cheap places to crash with a dog in tow ($60ish for the room, $10 for the pooch). The two folks I met on staff in the evening were very nice. I got a room on the 1st floor hallway,...

This place was pretty nice, but we ended up paying $90 after taxes when, just a few miles down the road, a La Quinta was available at an internet rate for $65.00. That being said, it was adequate for a night's sleep if you're on the road and need an overnight stop. Oh, they allowed pets for $10.00 a night.

Safety lock was stuck, keys had to be recharged every time we returned from outside while walking dog. Made to many trips to front desk for keys that work in door.
