The desk staff was very friendly. Based on other people's reviews,we must have had a renovated room. Our room was clean,did not smell,no bugs and the air conditioner worked fine. In our queen non-smoking room, there was the following; a small refrigerator, microwave, nice recliner, desk with chair, and cable t.v.. Location was great with plenty of food and shopping nearby, and is also only five minutes from downtown. If you like BBQ, you have to try Conway's hickory smoked BBQ-it's awsome!-Louisville, KY.

I am in the process of training for a new position, and have had to travel to Marion on my own dime several times. I am reluctant to spend lots of money because I am not paid for the training. Last time, I was burned with a terrible hotel in Marion. This time, however, I was pleasantly surprised with the America's Best Value Inn.

I was really worried since I hadn't seen many reviews, but I booked a two night stay, figuring I could change hotels if it was bad. It doesn't look like much from outside, but this motel was very good for the cost. My room was clean, pleasantly decorated and inexpensive. It was definitely a wonderful place to spend two nights.

The only cons I found were that it was a little noisy. I could hear people upstairs moving about, and their music. The WiFi was a little flakey. The shower head was missing a piece, so water was sprayed on the wall.

Otherwise, it was a very GREAT experience and will be returning in January.

I arrived at this hotel at about 7 pm. I entered the small lobby area, no attendant present. Began completing my registration form, attendant arrives. Cordial, well mannered and overall delightful to speak with, although it was all one-sided for the most part. Guess what side?
Lobby area was cold, dark and uninviting. I noticed a small sign stating breakfast at 6-9 am daily.
Breakfast consisted of very cold pastries to be enjoyed in an extremely cold, old dining area, that was dimly lit and very uncomfortable.
The room was your average "BARGING" arrangement. Small fridge, coffee maker, two queen beds and a TV, with a table and two chairs.
Two dirty washcloths, one on the floor next to entry door and the other hanging over shower rod. Linen was clean and hand towels and wash clothes had been changed. These were somehow overlooked. Went to business meeting and returned to the room around 5:30 next day and dirty washcloths still present.
The hotel was quiet and not well inhabited while I was there.

If you want a hotel in the middle of nowhere, right off Interstate 40, stay at this one.

Have stayed here many times in the past but they have let it run down really bad. Checked in late. T.V. did not work and wasn't offered any refund for inconvenience of that. Room as really bad and furniture was dirty. I was afraid to sit my bags in the chair for the dirt. Only pet friendly hotel in Marion. Guess I will have to look at different locations close to Marion next time. So sad because staff is friendly but can't deal with the hotel itself.

The furnishings looked dirty and recycled from multiple previously bankrupt bargain basement motels. Cigarette smoke was prevalent thoughout the halls, staff was helpful and polite, but the whole appearance of the property was more reminiscent of some poor, 3rd world country. I paid for the room, but was so uncomfortable about even sitting in the broken down chair that I simply left later the same evening. Oh, the gang banger wondering the hallway on the second floor didn't help either! Frankly, and I mean this literally, you couldn't pay me to stay at this chain again. It is America's Least Value Inn.

I was traveling to Marion to visit a friend and needed a budget friendly hotel.
Always worried when looking for a cheaper what I am going to get. However this hotel was very clean and the staff was very friendly. I forgot my wallet in the room when I left and did not notice till I was 30 minutes on way home. I called the hotel, as soon as I said my room # the lady stated that the cleaner just brought my wallet into the office and she was looking up my # to call to let me know. I drove back and picked it up, all was intact.
I will certainly be using this hotel again when I go back to visit!

I read the reviews and decided to try this motel since I’ve stayed at other ABV motels and they were pretty good.
Whoa, this one is horrible. It is packed with extended stay bums that apparently are homeless and have wreaked credit. The inside except the vinyl plank flooring is mess. Furthermore, the room had a foul odor straw or hay. What did they have in there before: A horse?!
in addition, there were Cigarette burns everywhere.
And the Noise: upstairs clown clomping around for hours. Every hour outside: someone’s outside laughing and talking loudly. 11 pm, 12 am, 1 am, 2 am, 3 am. 4 am and on and on. At 5 am, boom box car rattling windows. The reviews written that rave about how great this place is, wrong and false. A GIANT WASTE OF CASH. AND NO SLEEP TO PROVE IT!
