Americas Best Value Inn
Ranked #13 of 15 Hotels in Petoskey
Reviewed 28 May 2013

Great hotel with a great location. Very clean room with a nice refrig and microwave. The pool was very nice...9 feet deep...the hottub and sauna were very relaxing. The breakfast nook was very good with waffles, donuts, bagels, pastries, cereal, oatmeal, eggs, yogurt and fresh fruit. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Check in took seconds. They also had a deck with a big grill and we grilled on Memorial Day...grocery store was right across the street.

The "Charlie Brown" of Inns. The "posts" need painting or re-siding. The cement work is rusty and cracked. However, the inside is most sincere. The rooms are very clean and bright. The mattress is firm and the pillows are "plump". Good basic cable w. HBO. Many amenities: Nice furniture, newer refrig. and microwave, hair dryer, iron and ironing board, in-room coffee maker (looks unused). Even an in-room safe! A full pool and spa. A decent (not great) free continental breakfast. Free coffee and free computer w. Internet and printer in the lobby. Friendly desk staff (manned until late evening). Still, somewhat dated, as the entrance to the pool is in a separate building and motel-like access to the rooms. Drawbacks: no elevator for handicapped access and the bathtubs are too small (even for short people). Since most people are not 6'4" the rooms do not seem "low" and the ceilings are not "low" at all. It looks pretty-good for a 40 year old property. Too bad the outside doesn't look as good as the inside. A very good value, often $20-$30 less than the "chains" in town. AAA and AARP discount. Formerly the "Best Western of Petoskey." Great location near grocery stores and restaurants. Only a mile or so from the Casino.

Room Tip: Turn up the heat! It's baseboard hot-water radiators so at first it takes a bit of time to get u...

As some other reviewers pointed out the decor is a little dated. But as long as all you require is a clean, comfortable place to stay for a reasonable price this is a great choice. There is an indoor pool, hot tub, sauna, and small exercise area. Only possible downside is all rooms are exterior access so is you visit during the winter you will be in the cold getting to the lobby, breakfast area, or pool. All in all though, a nice place for a good price!

I had a pleasant surprise with this hotel! It may look a little run down from the outside, but once you're inside the hotel is actually pretty good. The rooms are clean, and everything seems relatively new. One of the few things to complain about is the low ceiling on the bathroom, my brother is 6'4" and he barely fitted under the shower, but nothing that can't be solved. One of the highlights is without doubt the breakfast. A modern, cozy continental breakfast room with yoghurts, Belgian Waffles cooked to order, Bagels, and everything you can wish for in a free breakfast. The hotel includes some "resort" facilities: a pool, a jacuzzi and sauna. Everything is neat and clean. Again, don't expect a luxury hotel, but for the money you are paying, is one of the best options in the city. I would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Look for rooms in the pool building, they are newer and offer more privacy.
