America's Best Value Inn
Ranked #6 of 11 Hotels in Wall
Reviewed 4 September 2013 via mobile

This place is a diamond in the rough! Has very attractive remodeled rooms with great western decor! We enjoyed the very large flat screen tv, along with the new flooring! This room also had a sofa so we could relax while watching tv. Pool was nice clean and cool. Lots of great landscaping, and friendly staff! Pleasant checkin and checkout! Breakfast had many selections, especially me as I like a lot of protein. Also was a nice large business area, although we never used it, seemed very functional. Will stay again!

We're on our "dream" trip out west, to include all the things along the way - including the Badlands. When you're headed there, there are a limited number of places to stay that are convenient to be able to see all that you want to see. We saw the poor reviews of the Best Western and Days Inn, where we might typically have booked a room, so we decided to try America's Best Value Inn. The room was got was supposedly one of their newly remodeled ones. It WAS large. It had a king bed, which was the best thing about the room. The room had cheap vinyl fake wood flooring that had apparently not been mopped in a very long time. After a couple of hours wearing my socks in this room (I try never to go barefoot in hotel rooms), they were absolutely FILTHY! The room felt like a dungeon. It was very dark and had been "paneled" in old barn wood, which was already full of dust and will be impossible to clean. There was not a desk or dresser or table to be able to put anything on. There WAS a giant faux leather sofa that was probably a sleep sofa, but we had to put all of our belongings on it to keep them off the floor. The dark and dreary continued into the sink/bathroom area. The only lamp in the room seemed to have about a 40 watt bulb in it. The first morning we were there, we got up to find the parking lot absolutely JAMMED and when we tried to get the "free" breakfast, there was nowhere to begin to sit the number of people they had promised "free" breakfast to. So, our stay included an additional $20 next door for breakfast. The second morning, we wised up and went to the breakfast room (which is clear across the parking lot) early. It was a pitiful offering. Biscuits and gravy, bad scrambled eggs, and bread/bagels in bags that everyone had to handle to get out. If you wanted milk or cream for your coffee (which was watery), you had to try to retrieve the 1 gallon jug out of the mini fridge.

I understanding that most people coming here are on a trip to somewhere and will probably never be back. But this town - from one end to the other - seems to care little if anyone ever does return. Wall Drug is one giant junk store, and they probably hope no one else in town ever does anything better - so they can maintain their monopoly. The Badlands were just as wonderful as we thought they'd be. With a guaranteed influx of, probably, MILLIONS of people each year, it's too bad everyone has to settle for this kind of stuff.

Room Tip: I can't think of anywhere we'd want to stay in this property again. In spite of terrible ra...

Dear Valued Guest,

I am so sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us in Wall, SD. I will be sure to look into the housekeeping issues with your room with our head housekeeper as well as look into the lighting situation to see about adding more lights or stronger bulbs into our lamps. We really try hard to keep up with our breakfast and if yours was cold I apologize for that as we like to keep everything fresh and keep up with all the guests needs at all times. We really work on our Customer Service with our guests and hope that you will give us another try on your next trip through the Badlands area.

Safe Travels!

The staff was great. Rooms were exceptionally large. We were there for a wedding so had a block of rooms. All rooms in our group had at least 2 queen beds and large bathroom. For being so close to the interstate there was very little noise

It is always nice to stop at Wall Drug while driving in that area. I have yet to find a hotel that fits my needs. This year I stayed at America's Best Value Inn. At this time of year accommodation is very expensive in this area. Therefore we have to pay more and get less. This hotel was dreary to me. There wasn't anything really wrong with it functionally speaking, it just lacked energy and attractiveness.

Room Tip: All rooms much the same, except that there is no elevator to upper level. This is a motel so all roo...

Dear Valued Guest
Thank you for taking time out to write your thoughts about our hotel. I am sorry to hear you didn't think it was that attractive. We keep trying to keep up on the hotel looks with painting and renovating when we can. During the summer months we are very busy but will keep this topic in mind when we get back working on the hotel this Fall. I hope you had a wonderful trip through South Dakota and that you will considering giving us another try on your next trip through Wall.

Outdoor pool was great. Good breakfast. Friendly, helpful staff. Smaller room, but sufficient for our needs. Nothing spectacular, but a nice little place that we would use again if we were in the area.

There was a mix-up on our reservation at Frontier Cabins and we ended up staying here. Had not heard of the place prior but we were very happy with our stay. The room was clean and comfortable. It included breakfast as well.

I've stayed in Wall several times when visiting Badlands National Park. Each time I've stayed in a different hotel. America's Best Value Inn is the best of the bunch. Our room was spacious and clean. The room was recently updated. The bed was very comfortable. Interestingly, the floor wasn't carpeted but was made from a composite that looked like wood. There was a new flat screen TV on the wall and we had a wide selection of stations. Breakfast was a little better than average but nothing to brag about. The breakfast room could use more tables and chairs. Guests often couldn't find seating. There is plenty of room for additional tables.

The only negative I found with this hotel was that the fan in the bathroom was extremely loud. We often run the fan to block out noise during the night. This fan was so loud that it made sleeping worse than with the fan off.

The price seems a bit high for a place like Wall, but they seemed to be full, so good for them.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for reviewing our hotel. I am happy to hear you enjoyed your room and we will definitely look into adding more tables in our breakfast area during our busy season as well as checking all our bathroom vents as I know this can get a bit irritating. I sure hope you come and stay with us again on your next trip through Wall, SD.
