"Friendly Staff"
The staff here was so friendly! Not the fanciest of hotels, but you can tell it is well loved. The one downside, the pool was broken when we were there.

"dump, but it was cheap"
The hotel is stinky, old, dirty and smelly. We selected it entirely on price point, and knew it would be something of a dive. The bathroom had hairs all over the toilet, and tp in the bowl. The bed sheets on one of the beds had hairs all over them as well. Gross.

I chose this hotel for value and proximity to an event. The hotel is older, and some repair is needed (ice machine was not working, peeling paint on bathroom ceiling) but I did notice some repair being done in other areas of the hotel, so hopefully things will be addressed.

Very clean inside our room. No fan in the bathroom. Only one electrical outlet with ground plug was working. Parking lot was not lit well enough for the area. NO continental breakfast - you could get 10% off your breakfast from adjoining restaurant.

"Awful hotel"
The entire building is run down and smells musty. The comforters were covered in hair and various stains. Beds are tiny and uncomfortable. The bathroom mirror wasn't clean, and the previous guest had drawn on it. The whole room smelled of stale smoke and mildew. The curtains didn't close, all the furniture had stains on the seats and the carpet hadn't been vacuumed. We checked in late, slept a few hours and got the hell out. It's the worst hotel I have ever stayed in.

This worked well as a low cost emergency option for us. The staff was very nice and accommodating. The room itself was utilitarian and some features, such as the bathroom fan and the room AC weren't working at all.

"Last resort maybe"
So we got to this hotel and went to check in. The ceiling was leaking everywhere and there were buckets all over the floor to catch the water. The room we were given was a 2 room suite with two queen beds and a sofa sleeper. As we open our room door, we were surprised to walk into the rooms with dirty sheets on the floor and the beds. Went to talk to the staff to explain the situation and he was extremely helpful. He gave us a new room to try out. In the room the futon that we were given in the one room had a broken leg and one of the TV's did not work. We got ahold of the young man who helped us and he took care of the issues for us. He replaced the sofa sleeper and changed out the TV and wrote us an apology note. He was about the only good thing this hotel had to offer.

the facility is huge. the doors to the outside in the extending buildings don't lock. There are no cameras in the hallways. I put my suitcase on the rack in front of the room door so no one could get in. I wasn't sure my car would be there when I woke up.

"DANK!"
The hotel was DANK. Everything smelled of mold and mildew. Non-smoking rooms had obviously previously been smoking rooms and smelled of it. Carpet felt wet. Pill bugs in the bathroom. So much nope. I've certainly seen worse, but it was just this side not picking up and finding another place without refund. Definitely not worth the money even as inexpensive as it was.

"Not as Advertised"
I found the hotel in need of updating, room was clean and comfortable. The ad stated Restaurant on premises which was closed upon arrival. There are a lot of nice and economical restaurant nearby. I was put on the second floor and found at 73 a bit laboring with no elevator. The ice machines were out so you had to go to the front desk to get ice.Location is convenient. Did not get any housekeeping service such as cleaning the bathroom, replacing tissue,etc and I ran out of "clean,dry" towels. I requested them and just got a lot of so sorry, that's annoying but all I wanted was clean,dry towels. I was there for four nights...........not worth it to me. Will not be staying at any American Value Inns in my future. Price was not in line for what I received. Staff needs to be overhauled so that they can set their priorities for future guests and future success in the hospitality arena.

Was told if I wanted more than 2 cups of coffee for room it would be added on to our bill when we left. Breakfast......that was interesting, 2 loaves of bread, a toaster, and some squeeze bottles of smuckers grape and strawberry jelly.

"Awful hotel, don't stay here! "
Not a good place to stay. People drinking in the parking lot and playing music. No lights in the parking lot. It did not feel like a safe place to stay. Extremely out of date, stains and dirt on the comforter and blankets. Hair in the toilet, bathtub clogged and wouldn't drain, dirt on the carpets, uncomfortable bedding.

"Disappointing"
This place is rapidly going down hill. New management might help, but were extremely short staffed in housekeeping for a busy week (county fair and Sturgis traffic). Room wasn't ready and only one housekeeping visit in five days. Staff were friendly, helpful and working hard to get things right, but management has to get their act together.

"This hotel could use a friend"
This hotel is in poor condition. Short on staff, common areas were not clean and the bedding was in very poor condition; complete with cigarette burns and dried blood on the sheets. When checking in, the front desk person announced your room number out loud (huge safety concern) and the security locks on the side entrances were all broken. The restaurant / bar was shut down and although there was a coffee maker in my room, there were no supplies for it. The "breakfast" in the morning was two loaves of bread from Walmart, a toaster and coffee, which was gone. Just a mess.

"Just drive by it!"
Dirty floors, two pillows for a king size bed (no extras), holes in wall, shower head was worthless, bugs in bathroom, AC didn't work, no coffee pot in room. Way overpriced. This place hasn't been updated since the 80's. Staff didn't say thank you. Had to wait to check in so the room could be cleaned. I guess they forgot the vacuum when they needed to clean it. Pool depth was labeled wrong. No towels in the pool area. But there was used towels all over the floor. Huge pool, but no hot tub.

"Stay away of this one!"
First they gave us a smoking room saying I need to deal with "expedia" or cancelled the reservation, but at that time with that motorcycle rally better take it. ok, we did it. Inside, one of my kids run for the bathroom, but I rush to turn the lights with my little one on my arms and I hear the "crash" sound on my food!.. that was glass all over the floor. Not sure if a fight? or they are fixing that? furniture move, dirt everywhere. Ironic " clean sheets on top of the bed" . we call front desk, the guy did not believe us. I took pictures! my husband deal better this, I really upset. Finally he gave the "emergency suite" and he said "we are lucky because that is an "expensive one" . At least the beds cleaner to rest, the carpets look dirty. borders of doors broken. You can hear the people talking outside in the parking lot or walking outside your door. My family fall asleep, they were so tired. But as soon the sun was up, I wake up everybody and took then out of there. Happy in the new hotel.

The room was old and needed some upkeep. The room next to us had a metal hasp lock which was hanging half open half attached to the door. Our door have the security peephole filled with Kleenex because you could see through it. The overall room was OK, but needed a lot of modernizing. The breakfast was mediocre at best. It was a third rate motel that wanted to charge $20 for a 6 pound Yorky to stay with us. We would not stay here again. The staff was polite.

"Run down"
Indoor pool shutdown for "maintenance" more like it's just not operational. Hallways very dirty. Room not throughly cleaned. Worn out furniture including bed. Room was not stocked properly. Hotel staff reason was that people who rent a room and don't drink coffee or shower steal the coffee pods, soap etc. Ice machine was brokedown. But you can go to the bar and get your own ice! Desk clerk said they don't have a continental breakfast at this time but you can go to the bar with a 20% discount before tax card for breakfast, in which I noticed the hotel staff had full run of the bar facilities. Overall the hotel was very run down in need of repair throughout. Had to ask employee to salt the sidewalks and entrances!
