Americas Best Value Inn - Bridgewater
Ranked #6 of 6 Hotels in Bridgewater
Reviewed 4 January 2016 via mobile

When you are staying in this type of hotel you get what you pay for I stayed in room 289 even though the TV was outdated the room was clean the bed was firm and I got a wonderful night sleep. As long as you're not looking for a newly renovated Holiday Inn for the price you can't beat a clean neat safe Hotel

Stayed: January 2016, travelled solo

This is a very inferior property - the kind of place that should probably rent by the hour instead of the night.

I made a reservation online at the motel's website (not through a discounter) after joining the ABVI member club and was guaranteed a specific discounted rate. When I arrived to check in and told the front desk clerk that I wanted to use a different card to actually pay, I was told that I couldn't because that would require an entirely new reservation - at a higher rate - because the clerk "didn't know anything about the pricing on the Internet" and "could not enter" any membership or discount codes.
I was told that I could try going online to cancel my original reservation and create a new one with the new card, but there was no guarantee of success - and when I tried it, the website indicated that the motel was completely sold out for that night and that there were no rooms available. There were literally only four cars in the entire motel parking lot.

After I gave in and used the original reservation, I found:
Missing light bulbs (not burned out, but completely missing)
A dead/nonworking room phone
Very poor AC
Leaking bathroom sink faucet
A broken/nonflushable toilet (had to remove the tank lid and manually open the valve in order to flush)
Broken door locks (there was actually an entire series of nonfunctional locks/deadbolts/latches on the door - the property had obviously changed hands (and locks) many times without ever removing the old ones)
An extremely uncomfortable mattress
And terrible bedlinens. The bed had a white cotton duvet instead of a bedspread, which I thought was a good idea - bedspreads are rarely cleaned, but a duvet can at least be washed regularly. However, this one had been washed and dried so often and so poorly that the filling had all clumped together into several large globs inside - 90% of the duvet was just two thin cotton sheets, and the remaining 10% had hard football-sized mounds of down filling.

At this point I'd already paid for the room and only needed a place to sleep for a few hours, so I stayed - but was seriously considering sleeping in my car instead.

There are multiple other hotels/motels within 5 minutes of this location - and this place wasn't really all that much more inexpensive! Don't stay here, whatever you do.

Room Tip: Back of property away from Highway 22

I needed to get up early but there was no alarm clock in the room. Wanted to call front desk to request wake up call - phone was not working
One of the worst mattresses I ever slept on - hard springs
Breakfast - see photo
Conclusion: never trust hotwire rating or description-They are misleading and 99 percent of the time you will not get any of the hotels that they say it is "similar to"

CHECKED IN AT 1030pm . Room was like an ice box. Temp was 40 degrees not much warmer than the outside. Heater in room was old. Furniture was very outdated. Very little heat from unit. Clerk said confirmed paid reservation did not guarantee that the room would be habitable. Requested another room. clerk stated they all had the same type of heat and would not be any warmer. Requested a refund which we received. Will never trust this hotel chain again.

I'm a believer in "you get what you pay for". In this case I got a little more than I thought I would.. The room was clean, wi-fi worked, had heat and hot water. The staff is very friendly but the motel really is antiquated. But again I wasn't expecting too much. I would stay again.

Reserved 2 nights stay. Arrived at 9pm. Once in the room i saw the sheets were stained and filthy, the throw pillows appeared to be coveted in semen and the base of the toilet covered in urine. I immediately returned the key to the clerk and informed her i would not be staying. She said i was still going to be charged a full night stay bc it was after 6pm. There were PLENTY of empty rooms. No need to charge me! Disgusting.
