A short, two- day stay in Marion made it necessary to select a place of lodging. Marion doesn’t have many hotels, so the selection is limited, but America’s Best Value Inn seemed to suit our minimal needs.
This hotel and suites covers most of the basics. The rooms have two large beds, a small living area with a fold- out sofa bed, two televisions, mini- refrigerator, and microwave. The space inside isn’t very large, but it is large enough to satisfy a family of three or four. Outside the room, guests will find a small indoor pool and hot tub, vending machines, an exercise room, and a business center. They also serve a complimentary breakfast each day so you can wake up, grab a bite to eat, and get on your way.
So, the minimums are covered and that is nice. But the problem with this roughly 60- room place of lodging is that minimum seems to apply in most every sense of the word. I already pointed out the smaller size of the suites, but that is only the beginning. The exercise room has only two pieces of exercise equipment and two dumbbells. The pool and hot tub are small and there are minimal chairs to sit on around the pool. The business center has only one computer. The view from the suites isn’t much, with one side looking squarely at a small batch of trees and the other side looking at the state route highway. And the free breakfast? Well, they cut corners by serving microwaved foods. The best bet is to eat the cereal since it at least tastes just like what you eat at home.
Does all of this make America’s Best Value Inn a bad place to stay? Not at all- it just isn’t anything impressive. I did find the personnel helpful although one woman at the front desk was prone to making inappropriate, unprofessional statements. When everything is added up, you have an average place of lodging that is priced appropriately. There are few places to stay in Marion and this one is likely as good as any, so enjoy the minimums offered at America’s Best Value Inn. It could be better, but it could also be worse so grin, bear it, and make the most of your limited stay.
