    The tobacco & musty smell in the hallway. The air scent in use is too heavy/cloying and it's obvious many peiple do smoke in the building - disregarding the uninforced smoking ban.

    I din't think breakfast was as good as other hotels I have stayed in. Poor selection.

    It served the purpose we needed it to: it had a shower and a bed and it is near the airport.

    We didn't care for the fact that the room smelled of smoke when we specifically asked for a non-smoking room. You could tell it had once been a smoking room, but more steps need to be taken to rid the room of stale cigarette smoke. Also, we didn't have any towels and had to pick some up at the front desk.

    I liked the size of the room and having the recliner in the was great. the staff are very friendly and accommidating

    The bathroom floor was really cold because of the location of the room and the outside door, other than that I can't think of anything else.

    It was close to the University of North Dakota.

    The hallways smelled strongly of urine, and I mean strongly! Later on in the evening it smelled strongly of air fresheners combined with urine. I think you need to take the carpet out in the hallways and put something that can be scrubbed and disinfected on a daily basis. I also believe that the smell was human not pet which made it more gross. The door we came through to get into Americas Best value did not lock which made us feel very insecure at night. We not only put our latch on the door, but put a chair in front of the door before we went to bed at night. We paid $84.00 for the night which was a rip-off considering we could have paid the same price somewhere else for a clean and safe facility.

    the location and it was pretty clean

    that they raise there prices on busy weekends, they don't stay the same, breakfast was not very good. it was as cheap as they could make it.

    My room just had some maintence done and should have been vacuumed before use.

    Our first stay here. We'll be back.

    We checked in really late at night. The guy at the desk forgot to give us back our credit card. But they did have it at the desk the next day when we discovered it was missing.

  • Couple

    The price has always been reasonable and the staff have been friendly and helpful.

    We have stayed at this location several times and it has been steadily going downhill in regards to maintenance and cleanliness in the rooms. Furniture and decor are really outdated. You cannot see half of the tv when you're lying in bed. Water pressure in hte shower was going up and down. Didn't get a good night's sleep as the sheets constantly needed readjusting and did not fit the bed very well. Also the continental breakfast was very poor and was not restocked as needed during the time specified for breakfast. Maybe you get what you pay for, but considering we used to get a room here for $40, now $60 - $80, you would expect things to improve not decline.

    Sunday morning there was no coffee so we asked them why there was none. The answer was " we ran out of grinds". We were not impressed and so were all the other people who had a room there.

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    The rooms were very clean.

    Did not like that they put us and our friends in seperate buildings even though we booked at the same time. The beds were realllllllllly uncomfortable and I also didn't like that the bathroom sink is on the outside of the bathroom.

  • Older travelers

    Bed was comfortable.

    There was no brewed coffee at the morning breakfast, only instant.
