Americas Best Value Inn Riverside

Reviewed 24 September 2011

Always exceeding expectations! I always stay at this Hotel when I am in the Riverside area and I must say their hospitality, friendliness and especially their cleanliness is above all other hotels I stay. They must have recently remodeled the Lobby/Breakfast area because I don't remember it looking or tasting this good. For the value they offer, I think I am stealing a nights stay at one of those fancy boutique hotels. If you are ever in the Riverside area you must give this establishment a try You will not regret it!

I wasn't expecting much from the place, being the low cost and location. I was amazed when I walked in. It was so nice! It was super clean, the bathroom was brand new! The room had a super nice flat screen on the wall that was HD and the room had WiFi. The beds were extreamly comfortable. The location is basically downtown Riverside, and accross the street is a grocery store. Oh the room had a refrigerator as well. Only issues where the walls were pretty thin so you could hear your neighbors talking, and if you are familiar with riverside, then you know that late at night there can be some shady people out and about. But it was a great room and so was the price.

I slept as well, or better, than at home with their marvelous beds. Beds of this quality are rare to find in hotels of this price range. Very clean rooms with spotless attention to detail. Very friendly host and hostess. I'll be back for sure!

I would have given this place 5 stars but they don't offer breakfast yet (it is coming soon!) and they didn't even provide coffee in the lobby, which would have been really appreciated. The other two things that were less-than-ideal were the small rooms (we had two beds, and they were both wedged against the wall to make enough room to walk between them, so if two people were in a bed they had to climb over the first person or crawl up into bed from the bottom) and the broken security latch on the door (although this was repaired within 10 minutes when the problem was reported to the front desk). On the upside, the beds were sooo comfortable and the staff was very friendly. The room was super clean, beautifully remodeled and chic (for example, the shower had a fancy setup that sprayed water from the sides, not just from the shower head). The place looks like an ordinary motel from the outside...but is really was relaxing and wonderful! Despite the very cozy room size, we will be sure to stay here again if we are back in the area.

Room Tip: We had a room in the back; it was very quiet.

My company's travel agency arranged for me to stay here because it was inexpensive yet close to the Riverside Convention Center where I worked for two days.
Driving to this motel you pass the Riverside Police station with a Greyhound bus station right next door. The motel is in the next block.
This is a newly renovated motel that is clean and tidy. The rooms are accessed from outside with the parking lot right outside your door.
It was unsure if I'd have a co-worker staying with me so I was given a two bed room (room 102). There was a twin sized bed pushed up against the air conditioner unit under the window and a full size bed against the wall next to it with a night stand between them.
There was a flat screen tv with DirectTV (cable), an individual cup coffee maker with Wolfgang Puck branded coffee, a mini refrigerator and free hi-speed internet access. The bathroom had 2 nice bars of soap, Bath & Body Works branded shampoo, conditioner and body lotion. What was missing was tissue (such as kleenex) and a clock in the room.

It's the middle of August and hot as the devil right now (100+) yet the beds had some kind of "down" comforters on them. The bedding was so heavy that I had to push it off since it hurt my feet.

They will most likely soon offer complimentary continental breakfast but were waiting for the city government to give the ok. (out here that could take awhile)

I'm not sure what my company paid for the room but the lack of clock and kleenex really was noticed and missed. This is definitely a Motel6 quality motel. I've not stayed at an Americas Best Value Inn before and have no intention of staying at one again.

Room Tip: The a/c is noisy but the parking lot outside your door can be louder.

Although it's not much to look at, this hotel offers a pleasant stay. The shower was spacious, the beds were incredibly comfortable, and (despite being down the road from the police station) was a quiet night's sleep. The best perk is the five-minute walk to Downtown Riverside which holds many restaurants, unique coffee shops, and a multi-storied antique mall.

At first you think, for this price, what do I get? Super clean, great showers, soft beds, huge TV, perfect location. It was one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at. The staff is incredibly attentive and efficient.
