I stayed in a non-smoking king bed room. Bed bug excrement on the fabric headboard. Dried brown muck stuck on the comforter. The bed was hard - and I don't mean firm, like a firm mattress would be - I mean stiff and flat. White powdery dust on the wooden panels on the headboard. Thick layer of dust on all...

The billboard says "Recently REmoneled", but should have read: "some Remodeling done". Management did install a new shower and toilet, but the rest of the room was old, dingy, with a hevily soiled and tattered carpet. You need to wear shoes at all times so as not to dirty bare feet with filth on carpet. The walls are paper thin...

I'm so disappointed in this location that I'm not exactly sure where to begin. This motel advertised itself as being newly renovated - maybe within the past 4 years or so. However, it looks as though no one has properly cleaned it in that amount of time. We stayed in a non smoking room, but the comforter and duvet has...

I had to make a business trip to the area and was unable to find a room anywhere (it was the height of color season). So I was lucky to get a room here and was expecting the worse based on some of the reviews, but America's Best Value Inn was fine. I am a cleanliness nut - and my...

We stayed at this ABVI because we had no other options, so really, we could not complain. If we needed to complain just a little, we would have said that the beds were too small -- only doubles, not queen size -- even though we were told they were queen size beds. Apart from that, the room was clean, with...

The price is right - No place to eat dinner nearby. Room was clean.Breakfast at Bagel shop was very good. Closest hotel to event site with others booked fully several weeks out. This hotel had a no vacance sign when I arrived.

Although our room was clean there were a couple of things that were strange to say the least! The lobby for check-in was small, dark and there were papers all over the counter. There wasn't an ice bucket in the room so when we asked the desk about an ice machine, we were told that someone would bring us some...

needed 2 rooms for my son's graduation from SUNY New Paltz. I saw some of the reviews and they seemed harsh but I needed the two rooms at a price I could afford. Even my mom said she was pleasantly surprised how nice the place was. It's an older building but so what. Its clear how cared for the place...

The price was right. Mattress was too soft and covered with a plasticky protector, not softened by mattress pad or sheet - made sleeping uncomfortable. (But no bed bugs.) Drooping, stained, dented ceiling panels made me nervous something was going to drop on me at night. TV worked, bathroom was clean. Door locked. Manager was polite. But the road noise...
