Americas Best Value Inn

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

It seemed like a sketchy part of town and didnt look like much from the outside but the beds were very comfortable, and the rooms were very clean. Great value. Not a lot of bells and whistles, but for the money it was a great deal.

Horrible location with obnoxious road noise. Room was not cleaned well. It smelled. Coffee maker had not been cleaned and still contained ground from previous uses. Shower curtain had blood on it. Sheets don't fit the bed and repeatedly slip off. TV's aren't set up properly and were plugged into outlets that didn't work. My vehicle was also in a hit and run in the parking lot during the middle of the night. The staff shrugged it off as a common occurrence and didn't provide much help. DO NOT STAY HERE!

Great deal for what you pay for. Love the fact it comes with a microwave and a refrigerator. The bed was super soft as if you were sleeping on a cloud. Room was clean and very well updated. Only flaw I can say is the location. Not the safest area in salinas, but even so, we didn't have any problems or see any for that matter.

I have stayed in this ABVI on several occasions now. It is the best alternative in the nearby vicinity in terms of cleanliness, room lay-out and comfort of beds.

Friendly staff. Clean. Reasonable price. A little noisy due to nearby freeway traffic.

The room was pretty new and clean. Whole setting was very relax and comfortable. Everything was great except wireless signal was weak. Its connection was on and off.

Hotel was very clean. Had fridge and microwave which was awesome because we stayed for a week and have kids so . quick late night Mac n cheese was easy to heat up. Internet was great cable as well but has old school t.v's but besides that it was a great stay!!

real easy access to freeway and close to restaurants.

This motel is conveniently located in Salinas just off the 101. One may get the sense that the neighbourhood is less than safe but in fact it is not a major concern beyond normal precautions one takes in any circumstance. The room, bathroom facilities and linens were all very clean but the carpet was in need of cleaning. I will definitely consider this place for my subsequent stays in Salinas.

Hotel was near the freeway so it wasn't quiet. Beds were a bit uncomfortable and old but the staff was pretty nice didn't stay for the breakfast but there's a 7-11 within walking Distance but very pricey not worth the 150+ I paid to stay here

I work out of town often. need a hotel with a clean bed and safe area for work truck. hotel was clean, staff is nice. Friday night surrounding area filled with what appeared to be ladies of the night business....

pics on a site are not right hotel is very bad rooms are very small, toilet is tiny cannot even use it

Checked in with a friendly lady at the front but was told I'd have a room on the opposite side (right next to the highway) It was loud as expected but the bed was comfortable and the room was pretty clean.

Bathroom could have been cleaner, breakfast not existent, none at the desk

My husband and I and on an 8 day road trip so we've been trying to stay at cheap hotels that are nice and near our locations. This hotel was perfect for us and we got this room super cheap plus we got some money back for our next hotel!

The staff was completely rude and unwilling to help with anything.

Was pretty good room was very clean had coffee machine but no coffee cup

This hotel was decent for a 1 star hotel. Rooms are old and outdated but the bed seemed clean. Free breakfast was a joke and only available from 8 to 10am. Staff was friendly and helpful so that helped my experience.

I asked for a non-smoking room, and it stunk like cigarette, we then found the cigarette in the room!!! The floors were really dirty! I will never be back to this hotel again!

This hotel is very close to the highway and has windows which let all the noise in your room. The breakfast was ridiculous, no room to seat and eat, and no choice at all for the food
