First - was OK. Not as bad for us as it was for some of the other reviewers. Best thing - was close to the Highway and our destination. Driving distance ( would NOT want to walk) to limited choice of restaurants within, say a 3 mile distance - and a CVS and a Dunkin Donuts. Breakfast jan 2013 WAS at the ECONO lodge which is located a short walk across the parking lot. The Econo lodge is in front of the America's Best Value and close to the road. We saw the Econo Lodge Sign- and that's how we located the America's Best Value Inn. Good thing they told us to look for the Econo Lodge Sign or we could have missed it entirely. The America's Best Value/ Econo lodge is located on a road that has a divider- so you can't make a left turn into the parking lot. To get there from Rt 10 you have to manage an awkward (for unfamiliar with NJ) u turn if you are not on their side of the road. Another good thing was that the price of Gasoline at the next door service station was very good/ definitely competitive. We had no trouble adding a person to our room, no trouble getting extra towels, and smoking was permitted. The heater in the room is like a big heater/ air conditioner unit. It was quite noisy, and I am rarely happy with the choices of on (noisy) or off (getting chilly). We found that the unit did not distribute the warm air very well - so you will need to choose the person who likes the temperature warmest to be the one closest to the heater. Lighting was quite dim and not enough -until we took a lampshade completely off ( yes we replaced it before we left). There was TV, alarm clock radio, wake up call, an iron and ironing board and a microwave and a hair dryer BUT NO COFFEE MAKER. Obviously the coffee maker could be a deal breaker for me! The people were quite nice and the price was the least expensive I could find. We were on the second / top floor and had no trouble with noise. Plumbing and hot water were fine.Parking was available quite close to the entrance and also close to our room. Would definitely go back, as knowing what to expect makes such a huge difference, and it will be hard to beat the price.
