Recent guest reviews
My husband & I booked this hotel for the night before our cruise out of Galveston a couple of months before our sail date. Then hurricane Harvey happened 2 weeks before we were to check in. We called a week before to make sure they were still taking customers and if they had sustained any damage due to Harvey. They said they were still open but they might have to give us a queen instead of a king bc they were housing locals whose homes were flooded. Of course, that was perfectly fine! We got checked in and brought 2 cases of water for whoever needed it because some left caps were still there as well as FEMA. The staff was so nice & accommodating. They did give us a king non smoking room. The room did smell as though it had been smoked in at some point but we didn’t request another room, just alerted the front desk so we would be charged for smoking (we weren’t.) The room was very nice, spacious, and comfortable. There was a CVS right next door that we walked to and rented a Redbox. The property was very clean and well kept. The continental breakfast was good and the food area was very clean. I look forward to staying there again the next time we cruise from Texas!
Nice clean rooms, very helpful, friendly owner and staff...Our group of 14 stayed here 4 nights, riding out Harvey when our cruise was cancelled. The staff let us to turn the lobby into a movie night by allowing us to hook our dvd player up to the lobby tv, make popcorn and watch Moana! One of the receptionists even brought in games, coloring books & markers for our kids...they even did a load of laundry for one of us! I cannot say enough about the hospitality of this hotel and we would definitely stay here again if we are ever in the Galvestan area!
Margaret Dollery made sure our stay in Galveston, Texas was amazing. She took such a great care of us while we were staying at the Inn. She's so sweet, humble & kind, she's wanted to make sure her guests were ALWAYS comfortable with their stay at the Inn. Ask for her when your staying at this Inn. We will definitely be back next time we're visiting. Highly recommended for friends and families .
Overall, it was a nice motel. Room was comfortable. It had table and chairs in room. Missing an ironing board, but brought one to us right away. The dvd player didnt work, the connections didnt match the tv... Bummer. Beds were very nice. Door was secure. Customer service was very nice. Would stay again.
Nice big rooms, very helpful staff and very clean. Good central location. The little town of Alvin was very nice. A great walking or bicycling path behind the motel was exceptionally enjoyable. Highly recommend!
Very surprised by the quality of the rooms at a budget price! Comfortable king size bed, fridge, microwave, coffee pot and pool were also a pleasant surprise. Not only do you get all this, but complimentary continental breakfast too! The only thing that concerns me is the burn marks on the comforter in a non smoking room. I photographed them right away so I had a time stamp to prove I didn't cause them since they have signage telling you your card will be charged $250 if you smoke in a non-smoking room.
Stayed here the night before a cruise from Galveston. Staff was very friendly and the room was clean; in fact it smelled like it had been cleaned with straight bleach. We didn't partake of the breakfast or pool. The decor was pretty ugly but the price was right. There are plenty of restaurants close by and an WalMart up the street for last-minute, forgotten items.
This hotel seems way cleaner than most in the area. This is a small town so I didnt expect anything super fancy. I was surprised, the fridge in the room was large, there was a microwave, and DVD player. The DVD player didnt work but no biggie. There was an ice machine close by and the hotel was close to plenty of food.
I booked this hotel because it was a good price AND because it got great reviews. It got a 4.2 and the reviews were good. HOWEVER I do not understand how it got such great reviews because it was an absolute terrible place to stay. The rooms are decorated in the most distasteful colours that gives the room a dirty and cheap feel. However the colour would not have been an issue if that was the only draw back to this hotel. These hotels are super low budget and this particular location was so filthy. When I pulled off my bed spread (which I am sure was full of stains and dirt and definitely not washed between guests) my sheets were stained and the blanket had cigarette burns all over it. I called to get the sheets replaced and for a newly washed blanket. The owner was very good to change the sheets. However when he was changing the sheets he put the blanket and bedspread on the floor, which was FILTHY. I didn't say anything since I wasn't going to put the bed spread or blanket on again. However what was disturbing was he kept on trying to put the blanket and bedspread blanket back on my bed like it wasn't a problem that it had been on the filthy carpet. I had to tell him a couple of times to stop. To me this showed exactly how the management and thus staff tended to the cleaning and over all cleanliness of this hotel. BTW my newly washed blanket had even more cigarette burns on it then the first one. It was so badly burned that it looked like swiss cheese!!!! The shower and sink area was old and not cleaned well. The towels are so thin and crusty. I didn't use my face cloth since it had stains all over it. I wouldn't even use it to line the counters so I could put my stuff on it. The floors in the shower area was immensely dirty. The corners had so much dirt built up that you could easily see the brown from far away. I actually wore my flip flops in the shower so I wouldn't have to touch anything. Plus I never took off my shoes while staying there since I did not want to touch the carpet or floors. Everything is this room was dirty and soooooo poorly maintained. You can tell by your fellow guests that it is a very very very very low quality hotel as they look like they just got out of prison. This is definitely not a family quality hotel. This was the second America's best Inn and Suites that I stayed in during my trip to Texas. The first one was distastefully decorated but it was decently clean. After I left that America's Best I had decided that I would never book with them again on my next trip however since I had already booked by hotels for this trip I would just put up with the low quality. HOWEVER after staying at this particular location in Alvin, I actually cancelled my next reservation with America's Best Value Inn in Galveston because I didn't want to experience another horrible night!!!! I will NEVER EVER book with this hotel chain again.
I stayed at the Americas Best Value Inn for about one year. My time was comfortable, clean and the staff friendly and helpful. Sunny, the owner, is an honest and good man. There are good restaurants close by and the swimming pool is nice.
