Reviewed 6 July 2014

For a motel, it met my standards. If you just need a place to stay, it's fine. Our room was clean with a bed, TV, shower, and desk. If you want to stay in a hotel, not a motel, this will obviously disappoint you.

The hotel is in a bad part of town. Only a few streets away though, is a really quaint downtown area. But there is a large wealth disparity when you cross just those few streets to get to America's Best Value. The doors all face the outside (no indoor hallways) - so just keep that in mind for safety's sake. It seemed like all the non-smoking rooms were up on the second level near the check-in desk, so we felt pretty safe though. Took valuables out of our car though.

Service was okay. The first room we were in, the door didn't lock, but they switched us to a different room. We stayed two nights and there was no maid service.

For the price, I think you could do better. If this is your only option though, it's definitely fine.

I'd never stay there again ! These pictures are old, Americas Best Value Inn looks nothing like the picture. Absolutely the worse, needs a Jon Taffer overhaul (too bad he only he rescues bars).
Half of the rooms in the hotel are empty. All night all I heard were police siren and ambulances.

I would not recommend this place to anyone. We pulled into the parking lot and could not get out of our. Paint was peeking from the building, Windows were broken and broken down cars were in the parking lot. Not worth your life.

My family and I stayed there on 10/26 to 10/27, 2013 overnight due to a family party we attended 2 minutes away. The rooms were great. We were really shocked by how clean and neat the rooms were. The bathrooms was clean and shiny and the beds were soft and comfy. The price made us skeptical @ first but it turned out great. The location was convenient for us. The guy at the front desk was also very helpful. We will def go back the next time we visit our family out there.

room was about $50 per night, It was convenient exit from interstate and in a convenient location in so-so neighborhood but it felt safe, This is a basic overnight stay. The room was comfortable with good TV and a refrigerator but no coffee maker. The continental breakfast started at 0730 and was basic but sufficient. Staff could be more attentative but they did their job.

We had to go to Schenectady due to a family emergency, so really no extra money for the trip. We took a chance on this motel.Reviews said it was clean, which is what I cared about most. And it was true. The bathroom was spotless! I am a clean freak especially when traveling..I would have checked out in a heartbeat if I was at all unhappy with cleanliness. Owners were on site and friendly. Coffee in AM. no bagels or anything else, but for 47.00 per nite, so what? Some complained about neighborhood, but the Hampton Inn we have stayed in for 165 per nite is two blocks away, as is the famous Proctor Theatre. You need to search to find places to eat, Blue Ribbon (1800 State st.) is a good diner, and there is a swanky Inn in the historic district with an upscale menu...didn't find it in time to eat there. It is your average motel, has cable, but it is clean.

Room Tip: Dedicated non smoking rooms on the lower level.
