We arrived with a group of teens. The rooms state non smoking however they smelled like a smoking lounge. They moved some of us, but the rooms were still gross. There were drug dealers there, prostitutes, and we think even more things we dont want to talk about. The manager was a nice manager. I did get bitten by bedbugs... More

If you want to sleep with roaches, nothing in the room working and the manager doesn't give a care and is worried about nothing then kicking unsatisfied customer out to price gouge other hurrican victims. This is the type of place this is. If I could rate it a negative number I would.

I had a great experience at the ABVI. The staff was so accommodating and friendly. The hotel room was nice and clean and luckily all ground floor. Wifi worked great and I was able to relax in my room during the stay. I would definitely return when I travel back to Dayton, TN. Rates are very economical. LOVED my experience.

This is an ABVI, an older property, located in a small town (Dayton) with no direct interstate access, so don't expect a five-star or Ritz Carlton. That being said, my experience was quite pleasant and hassle free. The gentleman that checked me in was quite hospitable and made quick work of the process. The room was ultra clean, spacious, and...

Came for a family function and the only positive I can say is it is in a convenient location. I paid over $60 per night and to say it was overpriced would be a gross understatement. The smell when we walked into our room was so overpowering, we had to get and burn candles. There is mold on the lampshade,... More

I thought this hotel was crazily expensive, but at least it was clean and cheaper than the Best Western sharing the same car park, whose rooms are not really all that much better. Americas Best Value Inns have a reputation for budget pricing, so I was surprised to pay over USD 60 including tax for one night. One of the... More

This motel is exactly what you think when you see it. It is a cheap older motel. The rooms were clean, sheets clean, beds comfortable, bathroom clean.
