I'm familiar with the chain of America's Best Value Inns. Some better than others. I needed a very inexpensive place for a one night layover and decided this was it. The room was cheap, clean, and quiet which was a huge plus. It was conveniently located very close to the interstate where I needed to be. And other than odd... More

Great hotel, great staff. Stayed here on business for a couple days. Clean, with good breakfast every morning. Don't expect luxury, it's a small hotel, convenient only for a short stay. Also in a very convenient location.

During a trip through the area, we booked a room at the Value Inn based on the fact that it had recently been remodeled and offered some smoking rooms. The place was not fancy but was clean and fresh. There were a refrigerator, microwave, and blow dryer along with a good sized flat screen television. Our visit was quiet and... More

Most horrible hotel and experience of our lives. We gave this hotel a chance after reading the bad reviews. First off the smell when we walked in was horrible. Then we sat down and observed a roach or bug crawling on the table. The comforter had what appeared to be blood on it. This hotel was absolutely deplorable. Don't stay... More

There was daily towel exchange, the WiFi was good and the big tv is okay, but doesn't make up for the room, they need to change the carpet.The bedding is nothing nice, the mintly color sheets is great, but you can't see if there are any bugs.

This is a very old basic motel in the old part of town. The boy in the reception was not very friendly or helpful. Motel did offer WiFi but we were unable to get it, the receptionist told me to fiddle with my settings - no help at all. Breakfast was very basic plus there were no coffee making facilities... More

The service was satisfactory, the room was clean. It needed to be updated with newer furniture and tv It was quite and we had a good nights sleep. It was easy to find off the interstate. Don,t pick to eat at Shoneys. This was our worst meal and it wasn't from the buffet.
