Reviewed 16 April 2013

Don't say you weren't warned! This place is a dump. Phone didn't work, front desk unresponsive, room filthy. First clue to turn and run is that the lobby door is locked. Second clue is the drunk vagrant pounding on the door at 2am. Just go elsewhere.

My girlfriend and I decided to attend Bike Week 2013 and she wanted an ocean front room. After doing a lot of "On Line" searches, we decided to check with America's Best Value Inn and called the hotel directly. Spoke with Brian on Dec 4, 2012, and stated that we would be there from Mar 8-11 with the rate of 129.00/night. Fantastic. Looking forward to the trip. Called and verified our reservations on Mar 2. Everything is a GO, since we made the reservation with Brian. Had a nice ride on Fri, ready to check in and was told that our reservations were from 7-10 Mar. We were devastated. OUR reservations were "Canceled". They said they called me on Thursday evening....yet when asked, it was not my number that they called. They said that I made "Incorrect" reservations. There is no way we could have arrived on Thursday due to work. Needless to say, even though they let us stay there Fri evening, at the rate of $111.38 (inc taxes), will never recommend this hotel to anyone. I would recommend the Ocean Shore Resort a little north from this hotel. AWESOME accommodations, and a great staff. They made our trip worthwhile.

Room Tip: Do not make reservations without a written confirmation. A verbal and subsequent telephone confirma...

Looking for an inexpensive deal for a few days, was ready to not get great ammenities, but front desk was rude, and we had to do more work than him... Also, stains all over comforter, and black hairs all over towels. Not recommended!

We were here for the Daytona 500 in 2013 and the staff was extremely helpfull with making our stay as comfortable as possible. There is a 40" flat screne TV in the room and the beds are very comfortable. The staff helped us with getting to the races and finding what ever we needed to find. This is a great place.

Okay so we get here and they were already rude. We get in the first room and the room was just dissatisfying. It had a sprite can holding the bathroom window up with sand all in the shower. Oviously the room was not cleaned. So we went to the lobby and requested a refund within the first five minutes of being here. He said no refunds so he just gave us a bigger supposily "better" room. (Which it wasnt they just threw in a flat screen.) We get in there and we checko the beds out and there was plain as day nut stains and pee on the sheets. And more pee stains on the pillow. We went back to front lobby and demanding a refund and he said no refunds and put his hands all in my boyfriends face saying "if you have stains on your face its like the stains on the sheets that won't go away"....umm what? Then he jusrt gave us sheets. That was it. And we left. Never in my life have I been to a hotel this nasty before. You have been warned!!

The rooms are dirty: The maids do not do their job and leave a note asking for a tip. The first night we stayed I pulled back the comforter and the sheets had sand in them which made me think they did't even wash them. There are two trash cans in the room. The maids emptied one and just moved the other one. Even worse, there was a cockroach in the bathroom.
Half of the employees don't speak english (I say they just don't want to deal with problems). We reserved a smoking room and didn't have an ash tray, after asking for one it took them over thirty minuets to find one for our room. The internet didn't work in our room so we went to the front desk and asked Brian what to do about this. He told us to go across the parking lot and sit on a bench outside of someone else's room.
