This room was very dirty from the start. When rolling the blankets back i noticed there was hair in the bed that made me think the sheets where not changed from the last guest. The bathroom tub tiles was all mold. There was no hair drier in the room. When opening the dresser drawer had crumbs in it. I was... More

We were late in deciding to go to the Finger Lakes Wine Festival, so our hotel choices were limited. We booked the Americas Best Value Inn, and afterward thought we had made a mistake by reading the reviews. They must have new owners, because this was a clean, well taken care of hotel. Our room had a king size bed,... More

My wife, baby and I used the Inn as a base for shopping at the nearby outlet in Waterloo. Whilst the place is hardly 5 star, it was very adequate for our purposes. The room was big, clean and well-equipped. The staff were friendly. I would recommend the Inn as good-value budget accommodation.

I booked this on-line and by the pictures looked respectable for the money. We were only staying 1 night, thank god. On arrival the person who appeared at the desk after you rang a bell had no customer service and didn't listen to what you said. When I booked on line I said a smoking room was our preference. On...

We stayed here for a dog show weekend which results in every hotel and motel in Geneva being booked up, and I expected OK, but it was below that mark. I chose this motel because I expected a larger room and I wanted the space, but the room was quite small and we had very little space at all. The... More
