Americas Best Value Inn

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Good value for money. The wifi in room didn't work had connection in lobby. The beds were serviceable but not really comfortable.

We had a great time and we happy with the comfort and privacy of our room as well as the size. The room was clean and we enjoyed being able to relax away from our busy lives.

Unfortunately I did not read the reviews before I booked, or I would have opted not to stay in Stillwater. Room smelt of stale cigarettes. Burn holes in furniture and bedding. Very outdated and old. Continental breakfast was a joke, even the coffee was watered down. Very small room. People came in their rooms around 1:30 am and yelled at each other until 5:00 am. Paper thin walls. Don't stay there, period.

For the price, it was about what I expected. The hallways seemed a bit dingy but overall the rooms were clean. The breakfast was essentially carbs but when you are on vacation you might as well indulge in some chocolate mini donuts.

Very disappointed with this hotel. Son had block of rooms reserved for his wedding. First night I went to front desk at 11pm to request extra towel and could not find anyone. Rang bell as requested at desk but still no one came. Waited over 20 min and went back later but never could find anyone. Next day left do not disturb on door because husband was still getting ready when I left in am. He took sign off door at 11am, but when we returned at 2:30pm room hadn't been cleaned yet. Gentleman at desk assured me room would be cleaned. When we returned that night after rehearsal dinner room was still not cleaned. When I went to front desk man told me it was too late to be cleaned (of course I knew this). He said because it was a pre-paid room there was nothing he could do about the situation and directed me to talk to mgr Rosa in am. He did give me towels....after I requested...but at no time said he was sorry. Next day when I talked to Rosa, she said we had put a do not disturb sign on door and house keepers had cleaned that area. I told her I had been assured at 2:30pm the room would be cleaned. She told me I had a pre-paid room, asked me twice if I had gotten new towels and said there was nothing she was going to do about situation. I did not expect a refund but did think they could do something since I had spent approx $125 a night. Again at no time did she say she was sorry about the situation and directed the blame to me. Very poor management! As far as the room, the beds were comfortable...it had a microwave and fridge which was nice. Although we had a non-smoking room there was a burn hole in the bedspread and the room smelled like old smoke. The breakfast was very poor...bread, few small muffins, juice and coffee...nothing to get excited about. Would never recommend this hotel to anyone. If we had not been involved in wedding activities, we would've checked out and found something else. Probably could expect this from $30 night room but really poor for the cost.

Was a comfortable bed and the room was clean. Close to Perkins for breakfast. The hotel has continental breakfast but no real cream for coffee. I do not like artificial creamer.

Hotel card activation on side doors were not working. Actually, you didn't need to slide cards to get in - the door is unlocked and can be open by anyone. I felt unsafe the whole entire night. The pictures of the Inn were deceiving. Place was dusty. Room had a smokey smell even though we were in a non-smoking room.

Great staff! Great Location! Great Value! Only thing is... Tv's were old console style.

Spent 1 night, and it was good. clean, nice staff, no complaints.

Overall pleasant stay. Friendly staff and good breakfast.

The staff was friendly and the room was great and a huge value.

Staff was great, very friendly! Our room was beautiful and had all the amenities listed online. The pool and hot tub were open from 7am to 11pm which was very convenient. There is a laundry facility as well as several vending machines. The bed was a little hard for my taste, but at home I sleep on a plush pillowtop, so lots of hotel beds are too hard for me. The breakfast didn't have as much variety as other hotels I've stayed at, but it was definitely adequate for a continental breakfast. Overall, I loved this hotel and would definitely stay again next time we are in the area!

Very basic but did the trick. Room was clean and had a fridge, microwave and coffeemaker. Breakfast was basic: cereal and pastries. The pool and hot tub were clean and pleasant, the pool room felt nice.

I needed a last minute room in the pretty booked Minneapolis/St. Paul area during the Baseball All-Star game, so I could not be too choosy unless I wanted to spend $200+ for the night. The staff was polite during check in, and the room was OK. Not as clean as I like, but for a last minute room, OK. The only major issue for me was that I booked a non-smoking room, and the room smelled of smoke. I know that is difficult to avoid in a hotel that allows smoking at all, and with some air freshener for the room, it was just tolerable. Other than that, for the price the room served its purpose.

I thought the hotel was clean and welcoming. We were able to check in early after traveling from far away. The hot tub and pool were also quiet and relaxing.

Smelled of smoke even though it was a smoke free room.

They were very hospitable, we had our 2 maltese dogs with us, very accomadating. Doing some remodeling with new carpet; but didnt effect our stay or our room. We traveled there to visit downtown Stillwater, and an old girlfriend that lives in N. St. Paul. We would go back again.

nice clean motel we would stay there again good locaion close to everything we wanted to see

We never get out, my husband and I, but needed a break after his mom passed away. We saw the pictures of hotel and saw it had the basics of what we wanted and the price we could afford. The pool and hot tub area looked great, but Friday night when we hopped in the hot tub I had goose bumps instead of warmth! It was the temp of the pool! Saturday morning it was fixed and working beautifully!!! Yay! But that evening, it seemed that perhaps they had added chemicals because within minutes our skin was itching/burning and our eyes were watering and even though I rinsed my swim suit, it faded the colors on it instantly!. Breakfast was small, room was small. I Know you get what you pay for, so I understand. It was quiet which was nice, but you hardly ever saw the front desk people.

We love Stillwater and needed a reasonable place to stay. This hotel was perfect for our needs. It had a suprisingly nice pool area and the location was great. With the money we saved we were able to buy some wine after our wine tasting!
