It was 10 p.m., we needed 2 rooms, and the first two places we tried were full. So we checked in just to have a place to sleep. Rooms were ok, nothing special, a bit outdated, but seemed clean. Bed was actually quite comfy. Breakfast included eggs, sausage, biscuits, gravy, waffles, etc. It was supposed to be open until 9:30...

First of all, the clerk was very polite and friendly. That's the only thing good about the place. Badly worn room, with mold in the tub under the no slip mat. Room smelled of old beer, hourly sex, and cigarettes. Carpet so filthy I kept my shoes on. Avoid at all costs.

rooms were cheezy, dark, old, worn out, and in TERRIBLE condition. I stayed here once before a year ago and they told me they were under construction. Well, guess what, after a YEAR they have not done a thing. VERY poor place to stay. Will never stay here again.

Very happy to only pay $50 for a reservation and that is exactly what we got. I am giving it 3 stars because we didn't expect much more and all we needed was a place to sleep for 6 hours. The room was a little rough but not terrible. The walls and building are obviously aged and the decor needs...

This Hotel had a smell as you entered the lobby. The room was dirty. The blankets had burnt holes in them. The mattresses had stains and were very old. The carpet did not appear vaccumed. First time at an America;s best value Inn and it will be my last

This hotel is old and run down and literally falling apart. The room fixtures and decor are very outdated, however it WAS clean and we didn't feel unsafe. It was very low priced and one can see why. We actually meant to make a reservation at the America's Best Inn and accidentally ended up at America's Best VALUE Inn --...
