My family and I broke down in Winslow, Arizona due to my alternator going out and we were already tired from travel from California, making our way back to Louisiana. We stopped at the American Best Value Inn and was treated terribly by the male front desk clerk not to mention Desert Sun Motel has better rooms and rates. After... More

It appears that the manager is trying to make some improvements to the motel but right now it's a dump. When I stayed I was laying in bed and watched cockroaches running around the room. There are much nicer and more modern reasonably priced motels in the area so I would make this one a last resort.

New owners have taken over since this review was written and have updated and upgraded dozens of rooms but have retained the classic route 66 style of this vintage 1950's motor inn. More

1950's Vintage motel. The room we had looked all new- carpet, tub, furniture, TV & bed. New but old fashioned style gas wall heating kept us cozy. Decent diner across the street. On old route 66, this is the first motel we noticed traveling West through Winslow, Arizona. Above average for the price.

Nice room, great on-site manager who might own the place. I got a brand new room- think I was the first guest to ever stay in that room. Looks like he's redoing most rooms. It's an old motel and some rooms look like they haven't changed in 40 years but the new rooms have all new flooring, beds, furniture. I... More

The rooms smell as if some one had died in them. The mattresses have pee stains and they have no phone service. The office is always closed and no manager around until after 3 in the afternoon. How can a place like this stay in business???
