Very clean, very quiet, comfortable and friendly. A little more pricy than we normally pay, they have a pet fee, which I agree with for the people with messy pets. We signed up for the reward program, but still not sure I want to pay extra for my pet (s). Otherwise very happy.

Eric S, Owner at Americas Best Value Inn, responded to this review

Dear Kwanita H, Your review is very misleading, to the point of being completely false. We did not charge you an additional $100 nor were you not told you have to pay an additional $100 cash. For guests that prefer to pay with cash we do require a (fully refundable) security deposit. That can be in the form of a...

I found myself in the difficult position of having my vehicle in a repair shop with no ETA during a weekend when all the motels were filling up due to two tournaments.

I miss the scenic values of this area. I also miss the staff who became like family. I hope to return this summer for a few days. Ideally, it would be a birthday present for myself if I can get a room during that week. If not, then some other time during the summer.

I have stayed here several times and each time my experience has been very positive. I especially commend the staff's friendliness and courtesy from the first step in the door to check-out.

Clean but I think could be cleaner Decent rooms at check in almost didn't happen because their online 3rd party booking system has occasional issues She said they had a guy wait 2 hours once before he could check in If booked through a 3rd party booking. I was not affected however.

Dear DavidtG6743QK, No matter what hotel you book with, we always recommend booking directly with the hotel. It eliminates mistakes, computer glitches and its always much easier to make changes and/or special requests. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay, but a little disappointed that we were not able to exceed your expectations. I will pass your comments along...

Upon arrival things appeared fine just as reviews had suggested, and the location is great. Once we got settled into the room it got ugly. The room was nothing fancy, just a room as we expected from a place with "value" in its name, but clean sheets would have been a nice touch. The bed was made but the sheets...
