Americas Best Value Inn Harlingen
Ranked #10 of 17 Hotels in Harlingen
Reviewed 14 February 2014 via mobile

The night we stayed, the temp was in the 30s. After a long wet drive, we were looking forward to a warm comfy room. Heater didn't work in our room and clerk was not very helpful. She offered a space heater and we said that was not acceptable. We changed rooms and thankfully, the heater worked. Mattresses didn't seem to be as comfortable this time and pillows were flat. Room was clean though. Breakfast still adequate.

Stayed: February 2014

Exterior is uninviting and run down...not like in the pictures. Rooms definitely did not look like the pictures. Pool was tiny...an oversize bathtub suitable only for a quick dip. Room was okay. Bed was comfortable. The new hardwood floors looked nice...except for the bugs on them. Would not want my family to stay here. Thankfully I was alone and only staying one night.

Room Tip: Choose another hotel...

Recently updated rooms with more modern bedding and hardwood floors. No clock or coffeemaker in room but continental breakfast was good. Usual food but was surprised by a Belgian waffle maker. Located centrally near all local attractions. Did not encounter sandpaper towels as previous guest did. I think they have been replaced with better quality linens. I would like to see the employees wear name tags because I had a hard time recognizing them from guests.

Room Tip: Mattresses were hard but we were able to tolerate them.

So we stayed here on a Friday night, everyone one else near by was sold out. The front desk person was very nice and helpful. The office did smell of curry ewww, but the front desk clerk was very nice. It was late around 11pm we still got in to a room. When we got into the room there was a funny smell to the room, but we fixed it by spraying some of the wifes perfume. The rooms were nice a spacious with wood floors and an nice big TV. The towels are really rough, in the morning we got up and there was a small spider in the restroom. which were my only complains. Not the best but as a last minute stay it was fair. Ohh and the price was the lowest around the area.

We moved here after a terrible experience with a hotel in South Padre Island (see my other reviews for more info).

The hotel works - nice spacious rooms - suitable for business or vacation travel at a VERY reasonable price.

Great service - the TV remote was promptly fixed when non-operative. Note to management - the towels are like sandpaper. Maybe some fabric softener in your laundry?

Would definitely stay again.

I had a bad experience at another Americas Best Value Inn, but everything was great at this one in Harlingen. Very reasonable price for an exceptionally clean, comfortable room with plasma TV, free internet, microwave and frig in the room, iron, hairdryer, and free continental breakfast. The folks who run this place are very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this hotel in Harlingen, TX.
