We enjoyed our visit to Shelby for the American Legion World Series. Could not have asked for a better place to stay than Americas Best Value in. The rooms were clean and the staff was great. Would recommend to all

Thanksgiving day, I made a reservation for a non-smoking room. We showed up at midnight to check into our room. After going into the room, I immediately noticed a cigarette smell. I called the front desk and explained that I had reserved a non-smoking room. The clerk responded, "Oh, someone must have been smoking in there." No, kidding Sherlock, 'that's... More

Stayed at the ABVI in Shelby. The Staff here was very nice and cooperative. The room has a refrigerator, microwave, ironing board, iron, desk, and a small table with two chairs. The bathroom had a bathtub, sink and a toilet which was not fastened well to the floor on one side, thus causing it to rock side to side. The... More

I agree with other reviewers "Great place to stay for the price". We will be in town for our daughters wedding and have stayed once already for wedding planning meeting.

The room smelled like stale cigarettes and wet carpet. The bathroom floor was really dirty. I booked the room online for 4 people. At check-in, I was told that they had assigned me a king room.

So the outside appearance of the motel was fine. The kids were thrilled there was a pool, since temps were soaring into the high 90s. The room had two double beds. The bedding looked clean. We had our own pillows. The room smelled a little musty and took a long time to cool down. The laundry facilities were in a... More

I was glad we brought some pillows along for the trip because the ones provided had blood stains (what it looks like anyway) on them. They were also extremely flat.
