Americas Best Value Inn Grand Forks
Ranked #20 of 28 Hotels in Grand Forks
Reviewed 22 August 2014

Upon arrival were we greeted by friendly and helpful staff at the check in desk. Our room was clean and well stocked with coffee, tea and condiments. We have stayed here in the past and we are happy to report that many improvements have been made. A note to all travellers this hotel caters to construction crews and you need to have a little flexibility as they do get up early in the morning.

My friend and I planned 2 days of shopping and dining. We were only looking for a place to hand our hats while we marathon shopped. This place was perfect. Found a coupon for $52/night in the local paper and they honoured it. Nothing in Grand Forks is verry far away so we were perhaps 5 minutes from the Columbia Mall and some great restaurants.

I guess this is most suited for a single/couple looking for a quiet place so they can sleep inbetween shopping jaunts. Nothing fancy but the room was clean, served a decent continental breakfast if you chose to indulge. My only peeve was the fitted sheet had lost some elasticity and kept coming off while I tossed in the bed. However if that is the worst to complain about it was pretty darn great. There was a BBQ and picnic bench outside that I assume was available for use if we didn't want to eat out. The room had a mini fridge and microwave.

Great bang for our American buck. It was convenient and cheap, clean and comfortable. What more could you want?

Dear Karen P.
We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us so much that you took time out of your busy schedule to write us a review. We are always happy to honor the coupons from the local papers and it’s nice to know that people are using them. We are nicely located just 5 to 10 minutes from the mall and downtown but far enough away that the noise and hustle and bustle of those places do not interrupt a peaceful sleep. While we may not be super fancy we are currently undergoing some renovations and upgrades, such as getting new sheets, so that we may continue to offer a comfortable and relaxing stay to our guest. We cannot wait for your next stay here with us and I recommend taking a look at our Facebook page to see about our upcoming deal and savings

Staff were pleasant but the room smelled like urine. It was so bad we had to actually leave the room several times through the night to get some fresh air. We had our puppy with us and paid $15.00 a night for her to stay. She is trained so she does not pee indoors. I went to the desk and said room smelt of urine. I was told it was the carpet glue!
Facility was not very clean and the free breakfast was very basic. No yogurt or fruit. Just pastries, donuts, cereal and juice.
Nice staff but this Inn needs some repairs and cleaning up.

We had our first stay at Americas Best Value Inn in Grand Forks. We thought that the room was a great value for the money. We found the room to be clean and comfortable. The staff were great, They were very courteous and friendly and answered questions that we had about the surrounding area as we are not frequent visitors to Grand Forks. Having free WiFi and breakfast was a nice bonus. We have recmommended it to friends and would definitely stay there again.

My fiancé and I stayed here at ABVI a few times and every time we came and stayed, we were happy with the room and service and most of the time we didn't call for reservations, we were able to get in right away with no problems. We don't get up in time for breakfast, but I sure do love their apple and orange juice. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who just needs a place to sleep.

Dear Steven and Lynette,

Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to send us your thoughts. Feedback such as yours help us continually improve our location. Our goal is to offer 5-star service at an unbeatable rate with no compromise in amenities. All of our staff is required to undergo and complete our Gold Standard training and are certified Service Specialists to maximize your guest experience. We are in the process of pouring new concrete throughout our lot now as the winter melt is rough on all roads and lots throughout Grand Forks.

Many chose our location over more costly locations complimenting our state-of-the-art X-Stream wireless which keeps all of our guests TRULY connected during their stay with us. We love rewarding loyal, repeat guests such as yourself with free nights, so ask about our local frequent stay punch card the next time you are in town. We look forward to seeing you next time your travels bring you this way!

Warm regards,
Americas Best Value Inn Team

This is a lower end older motel in Grand Forks. The price is about $60.00 plus taxes.

The room has a fridge, microwave, blow dryer and most other things you'd want in a motel.

The front staff are good.

The rooms are clean.

Our bed squeaked a lot with little movement.

The entryway to the street is in bad repair. This needs to be fixed.

This motel is a little further away from shopping and restaurants.

Many construction workers stay here.

They have a continental breakfast which is just adequate. No hot items. Toast, cereal, some pastries, oranges, juice and coffee.

Overall no complaints.

Room Tip: Try to get a room near an entrance way to make it easier bringing in your luggage.

My husband and I stayed at the ABVI in Grand Forks, on the nights of July 30 and 31, 2014. This is the third year in a row that we have stayed here in the summer.
We like the location; and the price is fair.
We arrived at the hotel about 1:00 p.m., and our reserved room wasn't ready yet, but that was no problem, as we went out to have lunch.
We were happy with our room which was clean; the desk staff and cleaning staff were all friendly and helpful; the breakfast was what we expected, based on previous visits. The Danish pastries are good; there is fruit, cereal, waffles, toast, and coffee was always available.
The WiFi connection was excellent.
When we arrived at our entrance into the motel (G), the ground was covered with hundreds of cigarette butts. In the morning, I mentioned it to two fellows who were at the desk. (I didn't get either of their names). Within minutes, one of the fellows was outside with a broom, and swept up the entire mess. I saw him go to one of the other entrances as well. What great service!!!
We enjoyed our stay and will definitely return to this hotel on our next visit to Grand Forks.
