Filling out paperwork is like buying a car. Room smelled floor was filthy. Looks like a druggie room. Tub filled with water when showered. Photos in add musta been years ago keep looking folks. Needed cheap place after drivin 14 hrs. Can’t get smell outa my nose.

Driving up the place was deserted and looked like an old horror movie set. Trash cans had trash hanging out of them, the weeds were growing through the cracks in the cement, and all the security signs freaked me out. The room was dirty, even the walls and the carpet, every wall was cracked along with the sink behind the faucet which leaked, the bathtub had rust stains and cigarette burns and was slow to drain, the bedspread had cigarette burns, and the lights were dim. When I got up to go to the bathroom at 5:30am a huge roach greeted me. She quickly ran behind the toilet where I am sure she has lots of friends and family. This gives ABVI a bad name. I have stayed at the one in Winter Springs, Florida and it is much better. I will never stay at another ABVI. $67 a night was a rip off...and that was the AAA rate! When I left, I drove by the Motel 6 for $44 per night and it looked like a palace comparatively. I want my money back!!!

My friend and I stayed and was quite pleased with our accommodations. This hotel was selected because of the program we attended was less that a mile away. Both rooms were very nice and clean. Our check in was also very quick. We hope to stay there again in the near future.

Unimaginable horrors!!! Bloody sheets, burn holes, broken furniture, mold, the smell! A blunt roach on the floor! Hideously stained pillows. This place needs to be demolished immediately!!! You can't breathe in the non smoking rooms due to the mold! The only saving grace was the nice man at the desk. What nightmares are made of! I'd rather sleep on the side of the road! This place is less than 1 star!

There's more hotels in the area wish I would have read the reviews before we stopped ! We were only there a couple of hours but it felt like forever NASTY DOPE HOTEL cracks in the walls, stains on the sheets, this hotel is just bottom of the barrel. It's no wonder why it was 59.00 a night you get what you pay for !!! We've stayed in another cheap 60 Dollar hotels and this is by far the WORST !!!!!

Really bad motel. Fighting, prostitutes, people walking around outside. We were afraid to leave our vehicles outside and left for a much, much nicer and cheaper quality inn. Luckily the manager didn't charge us for the night due to the fact there was an ambulance in the parking lot because of people fighting.

Did not get the room we paid for- we booked and paid for the rooms online- I booked a king non-smoking room as well as a double non-smoking; when I called the hotel directly to let the hotel know that we would be arriving late I went over my room order just to be told they did not actually have a king non-smoking room available, booking agent said they had 3, told hotel spokesperson that we would take a non-smoking room, such as a queen but she said it could not be changed at all; no one had authority to change this, on either end; terrible customer service at the America's Best Value Inn in Wilson, NC, USA (Janice)-rude, not willing to try and find any solutions to the problem that was between the booking agent and the hotel therefore customer suffers the consequences of their poor information and lack of proper communication.....ok so at 3am my husband goes into the America's Best Value in Wilson to get our keys. The clerk was kind enough to make sure our two rooms were side by side, double rooms, non-smoking. Thank you to the clerk. Now, we enter our room.. we pull back the very worn blanket and find bugs.....we remove the bugs and check the rest of the bed for more.....we check the other bed and decide it may work.......could barely sleep worrying that we would be taking bugs home with us.....we get to bed around 4am, get a call from the office that our room had not been paid for, my husband was barely awake, our plan was to wake up at 10 to continue our road journey, anyway, the hotel charged us $50.00 on our credit card....we asked the clerk they said they did not know what it was for......we had to present them with our bill to show we had paid for our rooms. We would not leave until they credited our account the $50.00. Awful experience.......I have learned my lesson that you never book a room with this hotel chain....I did not feel safe there, our money was not safe, we were not safe there!

We spent a night at this ABVInn (Wilson, NC ) after a long days drive from MD. The property is not extravagant but certainly cleaner than most budget lodging. Office staff was prompt, efficient, and friendly. BUT that is not what makes this an outstanding location. After a wonderful nights sleep in a very clean room, we checked out to continue our trip. After reaching home, my wife realized that she had left her tablet pc in the room. We contacted the office and informed them of our loss. My wife was told that one of the staff had already retrieved the tablet and had given to the Mr. Patel, the manager. It was delivered to us within 2 days of our notification. Often this circumstance would lead to a ' sorry we didn't find anything in the room'. We are so grateful that the staff and management were both honest and accommodating. We will certainly stay there when our travels take us to Wilson NC.

I would say really be. First of all, my family and I came in late at night and there was drug dealing all in the back of the building. The owner's didn't really even seem to care. Secondly, there junk is old and falling apart so you're better off sleeping in your car. Not only that the owners are extremely greedy. Check out was not until 11am and they called us at 10am saying we had to bring them the key right then or they were going to charge us for another night. So my advice don't stay there.

We were desparate and made the traveler's biggest mistake - traveling on I-95 without a hotel reservation! They allow you 15 minutes after check in to go check out the room and change your mind. The room was clean and that's what mattered. We were there less than 10 hours. While it served our need, we won't stop there again.
