The reservation was done online, at a last minute on hotelcloub.com, I have not had a chance to check reviews others than that web.site, now in back sight, I should have done it. This was my worst experience in any of US motels! I asked for the room facing away from highway, but that request was not heard. At first...

I checked into America's Best Value Inn in Charleston for a one night stay on the way to Florida. I didn't know exactly what to expect since its rates were remarkably reasonable for the Charleston area. I used a coupon I had picked up at a Welcome Center for an additional discount.

I was just moving to the area and staying at affordable hotels before I could move into my place. One of them was the Best Value Inn.

I would strongly advice against staying at this hotel. As soon as we took the exit for this hotel we repented our decision of booking this hotel. The neighbourhood is pretty scary. At the time of checking in we were given the key to a room that was already occupied by someone and the guy who was occupying that room...
