“Just right for the night”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2011

Salina is a fairly common over-night stop for us on road trips south, usually checking in between 7;00 - 9:00 PM. We have stayed at several other budget hotels in town but, keep coming back to this one. One drawing card is the pull up to the door, outside entry which we highly prefer over the interior corridor hotels. Keep in mind that this is a budget motel, beds aren't fluffy-puffy foo-foo like the big dollar inn's but, they are clean, fresh and adequate. Bathroom is clean and the rooms are spacious. They seem to be doing some updating over the years and the place looks nice. We have never got there early enough to enjoy their outdoor pool but, the area is enclosed within a rock wall and it looks like a nice retreat from the hustle and bustle. Our only contact with any of the staff has just been at check in and they have always been fast and freindly. We're usually up and out of there early so, we have not tried the breakfast, With some restaurants, c-stores, and strip mall nearby, and considering the cost to value, Salina's America's Best Value Inn is just right for the night.

Staff was friendly, the room was clean. Everything was a little dated, sink had a crack, the dresser had writing and scribbles on it, it needed to be reno'd but for the price it was decent. Just don't expect a 3 star at this price and you won't be disappointed.

Terrible stay - we had to stay for 4 nights - rude and uncooperative owners - nothing fixed - how's this - even the candy bar in the vending machine was covered in mold - gross! Would not recommend at all - even for the inexpensive price - wasn't expecting much and got way less - keep on driving!

Stayed only one night,but we'll definitely stay again.Our room was the last on the south end, & we were pleasantly suprised,given some of the negative reviews.Our room was clean & large & well furnished.It had 2 beds, writing table(desk), 2 comfy chairs,a fridge,microwave & coffee maker.The pool was decent too. We paid less than $63, I think it would be impossible to find a room elsewhere, this nice & inexpensive.The owner seemed very nice also,we didn't go for breakfast,so can't comment on that. This place offered much more than America's Best Inn,which we mistakenly stopped at the first night.

Room Tip: we booked a deluxe room on south end.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The motel needs updating. Walls rather thin as I heard the person next to us being sick. I guess I wouldn't stay there again.

The guy at the front desk was VERY RUDE, the owners were VERY RUDE. I just could not believe how awful this place was. It was very dirty, more like a truck-stop motel. Not good for kids. Pay the extra few bucks a night and stay at another hotel!!!! If I could rate zeros across the board I would.

Room Tip: One way to get the best room, DONT BOOK ONE HERE!
