Verified Reviews of Americas Best Value Inn & Conference Center

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Needs Renovation"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
I wouldn't recommend staying here. The building is in need of renovation, there were flies in the room and an old TV set with a remote that doesn't work. Even the desk table had a broken leg, but it had been neatly propped against the wall and the carpet looks like it has seen better days. On the plus side, it is at a convenient location close to Columbia mall and does offer breakfast.

"Ripped Off"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Absolutely the worst hotel experience we have ever had! Every room in our party of 10 rooms reeked of smoke, had filthy carpets, everyone had to go buy their own bed sheets, tubs either didn't drain or had sharp drops of concrete on the bottom of the tub. Burn holes were found in blankets and sheets, wallpaper was peeling and had rust streaks down the wall. The loud chunk noise that occurred anytime you flipped on a light or the air conditioning clicked in had us fearing the electricity. The breakfast was not great, caused gastrointestinal issues for all who opted for anything beyond cold cereal and was held hostage by the wait staff who had to take a smoke break after every visit to the dining room. We never received drinks with breakfast the day we attempted breakfast in the dining room and the response we received upon any call for assistance was that it is hard to run a hotel! The only positive thing I can say is that I had one nice encounter with the maid service when I sought her out directly and the issues that need addressing aren't the fault of the maid service. Our group made the best of an awful situation and tried to just stay outside by the disgusting pool and lean on heavy quantities of alcohol to care less about the conditions. We had fun in spite of the hotel. Our advice: it's not worth $40 a night let alone over $100 per night they charged us! Don't walk, run to ANY other hotel in the area!

"Not so good."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
This was our first experience at a ABVI. The room was surfaced clean, but far from acceptable. There were some unknown stains on walls, vanity front, bathroom walls. The mirrors were streaked and the Kleenex holder was dirty. The carpets were disgustingly dirty. I refused to walk on them without shoes. The room had terrible lighting. The only lamp close to the bed was plugged into an outlet that was hanging out of the wall and when I turned it on it didn't work. The light that comes on with the wall switch, was hardly more than a night light. I couldn't even read my book due to poor lighting. On a positive, the bed was comfortable. This weekend was a busy one for the area as it was Show Me Games (lots of kids) and there was lots of noise in the pool area and right outside our room. On Friday night I called to ask that they close the pool at 10 pm due to the excessive screaming and hollering at the pool and they did that promptly. On Saturday night I called the front desk to complain, about the bouncing basketballs right outside our room and the screaming and hollering on the stairs and around the pool area and the phone rang over 20 times with no answer. We decided to just go to the bar and enjoy a drink in the bar but when I went in, there was a terrible odor in the bar/restaurant/lobby area, we could not stay. It smelled like sewer. The pool looked green and I couldn't bear to get in. The furniture around the pool was lacking. There were five tables, three umbrellas, 8 chairs and four loungers. There should have been at least 20 chairs (4 at each table) and five umbrellas. Guests of the hotel were going to the restaurant area to get chairs to sit on around the pool. The chairs that were there were caked on with dirt and none of the tables were wiped off. My daughter stayed at a different hotel. They had a indoor pool instead of a outdoor pool and they paid $10 more per night, but their room was spotless and bright. The pool area was clean and no sewer smell. It would have been worth that additional $10 per night to be in a bright, clean room. The man at the front desk was very nice and cheery. We would not stay at another ABVI again.
