“Tried It...Don't Know if I Will Again....”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

Not my typical choice for overnight accommodations but decided to try it. Lobby was recently renovated so it seemed nice...offered a discount rate....even better.....then got to my room.
Ewwww!
Very outdated decor and housekeeping isn't detail orientated.
O'Reilly's Pub, attached to the facility, was a nice distraction with a live band and fun patrons.but had to leave hotel for dinner. Went to Green Mill...don't attempt this restaurant if you don't have 2 hours.

Room Tip: "Pool Side" rooms are offered...this means for the outdoor not indoor pool.

Thank you for your comments. We are constantly looking to improve our service and your feedback is much appreciated. I am sorry for your unfortunate experience at the Green Mill restaurant, however they are an off premise restaurant not affiliated with our hotel. Thank you for trying us and we hope you will try us again.

If you are looking for a nice value, this is it. Is it 5 stars? No. Is it fancy? No. BUT it is a value. I've stayed at 5 star places that were louder than this place. I saw the cars in the parking lot so I know they had other customers but you literally couldn't hear them in their rooms. The hotel had amenities I wanted, like free wifi in room and an adequate free breakfast with cereal, yogurt, fruit and bread. The pool looked nice too. Only minor complaint was trying to regulate the temperature. It was plenty warm but I also appreciated that the fan was constantly on helping me sleep instead of turning on and off waking me up. I had arrived during a snowstorm and when I briefly left the hotel to pick up carryout dinner at a fast food restaurant close by I wasn't even gone 10 minutes and in that time the maintenance person had snowplowed the area where I had parked my car so it was all clear. In the morning I left @ 7:00am and here he was again shoveling AROUND my car so it wasn't snowed in. Very impressive! I thought everyone was very helpful and friendly there.

I am very pleased to hear that you had a wonderful stay at our property! Our name is the game and we work very hard to provide the most to our guests at the best value. As we like to say "More Value, More Smiles". I am glad you did not have any trouble with the snow and hopefully soon it will be spring and we can all be done shoveling! We hope to see you again soon!

We stayed for one night in a King executive/business room. Very clean. You can tell it is an older hotel. Nice size refrigerator. Microwave, hairdryer, coffeemaker. It could use a larger coffeemaker or extra coffee in the rooom for those who like multiple cups. The TV was at least a 40" flat screen, very nice. I chose this hotel since it has a balcony with two chairs outside, so we could still go outside to smoke. The only disappointment was the size of the room. I have never been in a hotel where the room was so tiny.

We appreciate your feedback! I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay at our hotel! I agree that having that patio/balcony located off of the room is an excellent place to sit and relax, especially during the summer with a view of our outdoor pool. We will see you next time you are in Eau Claire!

We needed a resonable place to stay while visiting a family member in critical care at Sacred Heart hospital. All we needed was a clean and quiet place to stay that was very affordable and close to the hospital. This hotel provided all of that. As a family very stressed out over a medical condition, the last thing we needed was a lousy/expensive place to stay. The Americans Best Value was quiet, no frills, clean, close to the hospital and restaurants close by. Very accomodating with early check-in and late check out for those with family at Sacred Heart. Breakfast was standard fare accomodation. We had other family stay at another chain close by, they paid double the price and had about the same accomodations. Not "romantic", or memorable. Clean, safe and affordable with breakfast available. Could walk in decent weather to the hospital.

Room Tip: Offer a buy one get one free coupon for the adjoining bar area. Nice place to gather for families wh...

DO NOT STAY AT THIS PLACE! This is the worst hotel we have ever stayed at. Pool boy/wannabe a maintence worker and OWNER/manager need to take anger management classes. All they are good at is yelling at the guests and theatening to call the police if you complain. Both must have a script memorized because they were almost indentical. Owner screamed during breakfast in front of other guests he doesn't need anyone's business! The front enterance is nice until you reach your destination down the dark, cold and disgusting hallways (stains everywhere). Then it's a ride back in time...1970's. Holes in the walls, cobwebs, furniture with legs broken off, crooked toliet so you could reach the tub, lady in the hot tub with fishnet stockings on...I could go on forever! Drive away!

Room Tip: Drive down Clairemont to the next hotel.
