A nicely appointed room. Very good rates. But unexpected visitors via bedbugs. The bites began appearing 2 mornings after and still dealing with the marks. I chose this facility on the basis of other reviews stating cleanliness.

The hotel is pretty run down, not very clean. Furniture in the room was very dirty. Breakfast was sad.

On the plus side the staff were great. I get there late, around 10 pm. The front desk clerk called ma on my cell around 9 pm to check on me which was a nice touch.

I only stayed 1 night and was alone so, for the money, I tolerated it.

Stayed at the ABVI in Shelby. The Staff here was very nice and cooperative. The room has a refrigerator, microwave, ironing board, iron, desk, and a small table with two chairs. The bathroom had a bathtub, sink and a toilet which was not fastened well to the floor on one side, thus causing it to rock side to side. The carpet was clean in the middle, but dirty in the corners, not the worst I have seen, but could be better. The beds were comfortable, clean and I slept well. The room smelled musty when first entering it, but I guess you get used to it as I did not notice after spraying the room with my trusty Febreze spray. For some reason, the bathroom smelled of cigarette smoke when the exhaust fan was used. The motel offers a continental breakfast in the mornings which consist of cereal, muffins, honey buns, waffles, juice and coffee. No coffee in the rooms or available in the lobby after breakfast. There is also a nice pool that was very clean and the kids that were swimming in it seemed to be having a nice time. Easy access off W. Dixon Blvd.

There are no pros for this motel. It advertised a whirlpool room so we checked in. To our dismay, as we entered the room there was a bad cigarette smell, carpet was filthy, comforter had cigarette holes, bathroom floor need to be replaced. I was scared to approach the whirlpool but had to do it, and there it was... tile missing, unclean tub.
***It gives the impression that there's where truckers, drug-addicts & prostitutes hook up. Oh geez, we run out as fast as we could. They reimbursed our money but oh boy, they can't take back the awful experience.
Absolutely TERRIBLE. They don't even deserve 1 point!

I stayed at the ABVI for 2 nights in December 2014 while visiting friends in Shelby and going to the Panthers' game. I paid $48 a night. For the price I was nothing, but pleased. The room was very large and clean. The bathroom was not grand, but larger than other value hotel/motels. As far as visiting my friends in Shelby it is in a great location. It was past most of the commercial stores and traffic of Hwy 74. It is on the edge of a residential area which gave me a safer feel. As far as going to Charlotte and the game, it is 45-60 min drive (depending on traffic). Regardless of the price, I would not recommend staying in Shelby if your sole purpose is going to Charlotte and/or a Panther's game. Otherwise, I highly recommend this location for those looking for cheap lodging.

They do not do a great job of cleaning.
Also a very BIG drug dealing hotel. Cops came and took 2 people to jail. Plus guys were walking around drunk. And girls were waiting for guys to pick them up. If you know what I mean. Not family friendly. Pretty much stayed up all night watching the drug dealers, drunks and girls.

The Management had no manors! Very rude and impolite when we checked into the hotel. The vending machines malfunctioned all the time and when it was time for us to get our funds back management had a problem with it. We ALL ended up leaving this hotel and going elsewhere to continue our stay in Shelby. The hotel rooms were very dirty and so were the sheets. I would advice anyone planning to stay here to bring your own material. Especially sheets, towels etc. If your looking for nice hospitality don't think your going to get it once you arrive at this hotel.

I came up to NC for a church conference with my friend and we didn't really know where we were going to stay because the hotels we preferred were booked up and then we found The Best America Value Inn and we came and met Paul. Paul was at the front desk and he pulled up our reservation we made on Expedia and we ended up cancelling the Expedia reservation because Paul presented us with a better deal and he was so patient with helping us call the travel agency to cancel. He made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. His hospitality made it easier for my self as well as my friend to feel at home in an unfamiliar place. When ever I come up to Shelby, NC I'll be sure to stay here and talk to Paul.

Thanksgiving day, I made a reservation for a non-smoking room. We showed up at midnight to check into our room. After going into the room, I immediately noticed a cigarette smell. I called the front desk and explained that I had reserved a non-smoking room. The clerk responded, "Oh, someone must have been smoking in there." No, kidding Sherlock, 'that's what I just told you. Anyway, he continued, "there's nothing I can do". I said, "nothing you can do. I made a reservation for a non-smoking room and that's what I expect." He repeated that there was nothing he could do at least twice more. Then I responded, "Well, who do I need to speak with regarding a discount because of this stinking room you put me in?" Then he miraculously found another available room. After checking into that room, I noticed that not only did is smell like cigarettes, but the bathroom was also dirty. Someone had thrown up next to the toilet and the remnants were still on the wall next to the toilet. It was past midnight and I was dead tired. Did I mention the brownish colored bath towels, the filthy chair in the room and the spots on the sheets? AVOID THIS PLACE AT ALL COSTS.
