“greedy”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2013

Had 3 rooms booked for 3 nights, had to leave one room prior to last night of stay because of death in family, talk with manager early to ask for refund she said its your bad luck we don't refund for anything, then said I sorry, I said yes I know u are & I well let everyone that I can know just how sorry u are. I wouldn't recommend this motel to anyone that like a clean bed or a good smelling room

Room Tip: don't get a room here or u will regret it...

The good news - the price was right. We paid $59.99 + tax (9.75% tax plus 3% city tax). But everything else is bad news.... the rooms were small and dark. I didn't even know they still made big bulky Zenith TV's, but these rooms had them. Old comforters and curtains. Didn't "feel" clean. One tiny little packet of shampoo and a tiny little bar of soap that broke when you tried to use it. Rooms did have a refrigerator, which was nice. They advertised breakfast with the room rate, but after seeing the room, we had low expectations. Good thing because the ONLY thing they had out for breakfast was a waffle iron. And I am not exaggerating. We ended up going to McDonalds.

We stayed at this hotel on our way to Charlotte,NC and decided on it since it was next to the gas station we stopped at and it was already past midnight. I knew of a couple of good value hotels that where farther off the exit in Sevierville but my wife wanted to go no farther. When she woke up the next morning she realized the mistake she made. There was no shampoo (good thing we had our own), no hair dryer, and all they have for breakfast is coffee, apple juice and a waffle iron. Our room had a spot in the ceiling over the shower that the drywall had split and looked like mold behind it. The bathroom door along with the room furniture and trim was rather beat up or even splintered at the edges. Read some of the other reviews, that about sums it up.

We got assigned to room 201 when we first arrived. Upon walking in the room, the room was over 100 degrees because the air conditioner was left off and the room smelled like a combination of vomit and another smell you can use your imagination on. We were hungry so we decided to go get some dinner and a can of Febreez to use while the room cooled down. When we returned a couple hours later, the room still smelled bad so we used the whole can of air freshener on the floor, curtains, and bed. We were able to kill the smell for the night. The next morning we went to Gatlinburg for a while and when we returned, the smell was back, I called the front desk and they gladly moved us to another room. When we moved we realized the new room didn't have a fridge and they allowed us to move the one from the first room down the hall to the ew one.

Room Tip: Room 201 has a bad odor.

This is a clean, no frills ( no hair dryer, no fru-fru shampoo, cream rinse), excellent value motel. The owners are very nice and accommodating for late check in. If you are looking for a 5 star hotel, don't stay here. But, if you're looking for a clean hotel for minimal $, I would highly recommend this hotel.

We chose this location based on Trip Advisor but I do not see what others have seen. Upon entering the room we were created by a very musty smell in the room. The furniture is stained and old, old TV, old phone with Motel 6 on it, light over sink did not work, bathroom was old and did not feel clean, pillows flat and sheets thin. I would not stay here again nor would I recommend it. There are much nicer hotels
in the area. Only plus would be location.

Dear g8trfan4ever,

On behalf of the staff of Americas Best Value Inn, I would like to personally apologize for the issues you experienced in 2013. I also apologize for not getting back with you. Last year, we were in the process of changing to Americas Best Value Inn-one of the Country's fastest growing hotel chains. We are sorry that the room did not meet your expectations. We are planning to do some updates in the future.

Regards,

This hotel is located in a very convenient location, right off exit 407 and real close to severville and pigeon forge. The front desk was very friendly and very informative of the area. The hotel has a breakfast in the morning which was very good. They offer waffles and different juice and coffee. They also offer free wifi which worked great. The room was very nice and clean, and the mattress was very comfortable. I definitely will be back and recommend it to others. It is also located right by some great restaurants which was great because I was to tired to drive very far and I ended up not having to go very far at all because the restaurants were so close.
