Americas Best Value Inn ★★

HORRIBLE - CRIED EACH DAY!!!

Would not recommend Mon, Oct 8, 2012
I choose this room because the pictures being displayed of the rooms showed that it had a kitchenette with a stove and full size fridge at the location where I wanted to stay, which was the big reason I reserved 5 days there. According to the picture the room looked remodel and fresh paint and a kitchen. Oh, I was so excited when I made the reservation. I could not wait to go to San Francisco. Oh, what a nightmare. What I received PALED in comparison to the pictures that were shown. I walked into my room and it was a cheap motel; no stove, no full size fridge, no kitchenette, no coffee pot, no microwave. There was not even a double lock on the front door for security, just the one on the handle. The other lock had been removed. The shower curtain contain black mold along the entire curtain bottom. The room smelled musty and old. Did not look freshly painted. I paid over $900 for a motel room, plus we had to go out to eat because I could not cook which cost us extra money for 5 days which we were not counting on spending so much money because we were on a budget. I JUST CRIED . The first day I walked into the room I went back to the office to tell the front desk person that room was not what I reserved online. I told him the one I reserved had a kitchenette. He smirked and said none of the rooms have a kitchenettes. I was so heart broken that our hotel room was actually a old motel room. Before my vacation I was bragging to all my friends of what a great deal I got and that my room was beautiful and it had a kitchenette. Now, I have to tell them my awful experience. I would not recommend this location to anyone. I am so HEARTBROKEN.

Hotel was clean and close to pretty much everything we we wanted to do. Hotel workers were friendly. Got to try the little coffee house right next door. Good stuff. Great all around experience.

We just spent one night there. Front clerk was helpful and polite. The rooms are very basic but very clean. I would stay there again next time I'm in SF.

False Advertisment

Would not recommend Sun, May 15, 2011
Other reviewers said it was a bit noisy because of the street. That is an understatement. The walls in this place are so thin it sounds like you are sleeping ON the street. Lombard St. is like a freeway ALL NIGHT LONG. The pipes in the walls screached and rattled NON-STOP. A drunk argument broke out in the parking lot at 1:00am and when I went out and asked them to please be quite they cussed me out and called me dirty names. "cable" was 3 channels, no "jacuzzi tub" in sight. Shower was filthy. I feel mislead and ripped off. Need I go on...?

Bed Bugs

Would not recommend Mon, Apr 18, 2011
Up until the morning I left I was quite impressed with the hotel. It was very conveniently located to many restaurants and bus stops. But the last morning we were there we noticed a bug on our comforter. We didn't think much of it until we got home and I have hundreds of bed bug bites!!!!! Please do your research of bed bugs before you go and look for the signs. If I had done that I would have realized that and not stayed for a week!

You get what you pay for

Would not recommend Tue, Apr 12, 2011
We were on the 3rd floor. The tv reception was horrible, and our shower leaked to the floor below us. AC/heater didn't work and alarm clock didn't work. No coffee, only muffins and juice for free breakfast. Room was old and carpet was dirty. On the plus side, the location is great. Close to bus lines and an IHOP across the street.

DO NOT GO HERE!

Would not recommend Mon, May 31, 2010
We had an absolutely HORRIBLE time at this hell-hole of a motel. The full-time, live-in desk clerk, [...], was hostile to us (a gay couple) from the moment we arrived. [...]Our nightmare didn't end there, however. We kept getting crank calls each night, waking us up at 3:00 am, 4:00 am, etc. And then the electric lock to our suite kept getting deprogrammed, so we had to go to the front desk for replacement keys. Having failed in preventing us from staying there, [...] resorted to doing everything in his power to make our stay miserable.Coupled with the awful street noise, the paper-thin walls, and the hard mattresses, we cannot warn people enough to stay away from this terrible property.

Dining

IHOP and Mel's Diner are within 1 block.

Friendly check-in. Ease of check-in. Parking available, if early. Fairly quiet with busy Lombard street. Restaurants nearby were excellent.
