Americas Best Value Inn Lansing
Ranked #21 of 26 Hotels in Lansing
Reviewed 27 May 2015

Booked a couple of nights here Memorial day weekend. Room was trashed meaning cracked bathroom door frame, stained mattress, stained carpet, cabinets were smashed. The people next door were partying all night with cars/visitors coming and going all night. This place doesn't appear to have money to keep the rooms up or the general facilities. This class of motel shouldn't even be on a low budget list as the clientele appears seedy at best.

Room Tip: Don't go!

Tried to stay there last night. The first room had old food in the fridge and a bunch of long hair in the sheets. We asked for another room. The second room had used condoms around the bed. After we reported the second room, we were asked to leave. And that leaving would be easier then them trying to make is happy. Don't stay here!!

I travel forty five to fifty weeks a year and have stayed in some of the best and the worst in the country. Now I should have know, when the company I was working for, offered to foot the bill for our lodging, a true sign in my business I'm being put together and I should run. I got there and the outside didn't look too hateful, the desk guy was friendly, but the five rooms we occupied were some of the nastiest rooms I've ever seen or stayed in. We bought new sheets, pillows, pillow cases and a coworker camped out in his sleeping bag on the bed, with all of the new stuff. Run, don't walk, to get back in your car.

This shady hotel may be centrally located. but it is very shady. Dirty, people constantly coming and going, dirty, no amenities and most importantly BED BUGS. I was immediately bitten up! This place should be shut down for sure.
