Not like the pictures

The location was convient for us. We were very disappointed with the cleanliness. The place is run down and needs repairs. We would not have stayed here if the pictures showed the true look of the hotel and the rooms. There were nicer hotels in the area for a cheaper rate.

Below Average

I was not that impressed with my stay. I did not feel very safe in the area. Not to mention, I was reminded by a rude staff member knocking on my door 15 minutes before check out time that I needed to check out. Believe me, I was very ready to check out. Needless to say that I will not be staying there again.

You get less than you pay for

The room was very worn, surface cleaned, but not corners. The hot water took 15 minutes to warm up in both rooms I had. The smell was disgusting. Another guest complained that his tub had been patched and he felt like he was going to fall through the tub. The breakfast was OK, nothing special. The loby was nice looking thats about all.

Avoid this Establishment

This Lodge is in a bad part of town and is not at all what is advertised. Avoid if at all possible.

OK for a short stay

This hotel was chosen for it's location and price. The room was good enough as we only needed a place to sleep for 6 hours. Room was old - carpet worn, shower old and the bathroom could have been cleaned better; but it was very quiet and very conveniently located. For the price it served it's purpose. Staff were very friendly.

disgusting room, mold, cracked tile in bathroom, very gheto

America's best value inn was an embarassment to be part of. the heat did not work, the jacuzzie had only 2 jets working, was unclean, cracked walls and the room smelled like mold, it was disgusting. only gave 2 pillows for a king bed and i towel for the night. also the hot water could not fill the jacuzzie, it was freezing unless you filled it half way, waited an hour and continued filling it again.

Average Stay

This stay was average. Breakfast was good it consists of cereal, bagels, donuts, muffins, coffee, juice. Everything was fresh and begins at 6:00 AM. The room size was average, had a tv, coffee pot, hair dryer. Pretty average, would probably stay their again in a pinch.
