Americas Best Value Inn
Ranked #4 of 5 Hotels in Holyoke
Reviewed 3 June 2013

my son and i stayed there for 2 nights. The king size non smoking room was right next to the office where we heard the buzzer ring throughout the night. It had a VERY MUSTY SMELL. The rooms looked very OLD inside. Didnt have an alarm clock or radio, ironing board or iron. Not even a luggage rack to set your suitcase on. I guess all that was offered was coffee in the morning. Lobby looked dirty though. ON A POSITIVE NOTE, the room was clean and NO BED BUGS. The location is off the street. nice tv and mini fridge. The room was spacious. My opinion, i will not be staying there next time i go back. $99 for a sat night was defiantly a rip off, but the $59 on sunday night is more the price for the room.

Tucked quietly off the main road, America's Best Value Inn can be easy to overlook by a bleary-eyed traveler, searching for somewhere to catch some long-overdue zzzzzs. But said traveler, indeed, would be remiss to miss out on Holyoke, MA's hidden gem.

Due to my job I regularly spend one night per week in Holyoke, MA, and when there, I stay at the America's Best Value Inn. Never do I feel more well-rested than when I stay at ABVI. The location is blissfully quiet. The window curtains provide pitch-black darkness, in-room, for the best of sleeping conditions. Room temperature controls work like a charm, and they do so quickly, so that one can easily heat the room to desired temp and then turn off the fans once in bed for a toasty but perfectly silent night's sleep. Additionally, the rooms are exceptionally clean, comfortable, and nice smelling.

To boot, the office staff is genuinely kind, engaging, and accommodating. And for the incredibly cheap price, the amenities are outstanding: free wi-fi, in-room microwave and refrigerator, and hundreds of cable channels for free.

If you're on a reasonable travel budget, America's Best Value Inn in Holyoke, MA is not just a best value, it's the best way to be good to yourself away from home.

The room was clean and spacious, and so was the bathroom. The room was cold upon our arrival and took almost an hour to warm up to comfortable level. Yes, it smelled slightly musty but after a while I stopped noticing it. Beds were nice, but pillows very thick, bring your own if you can. The bath towels were the size of a large hand towel and quite worn, warmly recommend packing your own. Although the room was reserved for a family of three, there were only two of everything (towels, cups). Avoid rooms below the owner's quarters, you can hear every footstep from above - and those kids run around a lot! Otherwise nice shelf in the bathroom was so rickety any bottles had to be laid flat on it, otherwise the slightest touch would shake it and have everything fall off. I would definitely consider coming back, but with our own pillows, towels and a selection of snacks/drinks.

Room Tip: Second floor or downstairs not below the owner's quarters.

Altho we don't live that far away we needed to stay in Springfield area for an event. This place was a big hit with our grand daughter age 5 as the CLOSET was almost as big as her room at home! Huge bed--why did it seem so much bigger than our King at home?--clean no smells and QUIET. Dunks on every corner in MA (It's the law!) and WM right down the block with other dining nearby and all of Springfield a few mins away. Planning another trip to same event in Jan will DEF try and stay here again. Dinosaur tracks across the road when possible to get to (weather) and Mt. Tom in the back gives this place a more "tour" feel than right outside one of New Englends biggest cities. Easy drive thru scenic country to many places-Yankee Candle; Car Museum; Deerfield; Bridge of Flowers---much more.

Older motel style that has been renovated. Not much to look at, on a section of Rt. 5 that doesn't see much traffic anymore, in between Holyoke and Northampton. Rooms have been renovated and in very nice shape. King size beds. Direct TV. No coffee maker, but has microwave and small refrigerator. A few miles to closest Dunkin Donuts. Pillows a bit thin. Somewhat noisy heater/AC common in motels. No breakfast -- go to Hamp for that!

Overall, if you are looking for a lower-price place to stay with a minimum of amenities, but clean and relatively modern, then this place will work.

ABV offered exceptional staff, a spotless room, a microwave and refrigerator in each room. There was plenty of hot water. It was quiet, easy to get to, and a wonderful value. When I misplaced my wallet and called, the owner immediately went to find it and assured me it was safe. It was quiet and we slept well in a large and comfortable bed.

Wasn't expecting much when we pulled in, but we where pleasantly surprised by the nice clean rooms an friendly husband and wife that own the place. Not much on the outside buy nice, inexpensive room for the area.
