"Too costly for what you get."
I am usual surprised by comments left by users. It always seems like they were looking for a five star experience at a budget (read cheap) hotel. I'm more understanding but in the case of this stay, I have to comment. The room was pretty clean but sparse with the furniture. Hotel was in shabby shape. It states breakfast included. Do not bother. Do not. […] The "breakfast" that these places serve you are usually a joke, but I can get by and find something. This one was dismal. Juice machine did not work. Your choices were coffee (I passed), bagels but no toaster and nothing to put on them, cereal - did not see any milk, and the waffle machine. There was a 2 person table in a 6x8 foot space to eat. Luckily I was the only person there. To improve the experience the janitor/front counter worker decided to mop that area as I "enjoyed" my breakfast (waffle with imitation syrup). As he swabbed back and forth, he even struck my foot with the mop (said nothing). This is just poor when you consider how much the room cost. Not at all worth the stay.

"hotel was located in the perfect location"
This motel is very old. Blankets had big burn holes in the. The Jacuzzi did nothing but shoot dirt out the jets even after filling and draining several times. we had no HBO, No phone in the room. The coffee pot still had coffee grounds in the pot from prior customers. I am so disgusted and very upset at the money I spent to stay in a room with a Jacuzzi […] that I couldn't use. I let them know how I felt when I left and she told me she would let someone know. WOW!!!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Do not stay"
Dirty sheets; one set of towels for 2 adults and one towel had a gaping hole in it. Not much interaction with staff but clerk was pleasant. Absolutely would not recommend this hotel. Will be sure we post our unpleasant stay to our followers to avoid this hotel at all cost.Genuine Expedia guest review

"close to home."
The staff was nice check in and out. The hotel pictured was not where we stayed. It was dark and no direction in the parking lot. There were no towels in the room and no WiFi. Spider webs on the ceiling.Genuine Expedia guest review

I was greeting with a nice desk clerk, fresh coffee and easy check in. There were construction workers there that were upset about something and used profanity. The room however was not comforting. The heater vent had white dirt in it that blew out when the heater came on. The bathroom had mold growing up the walls. The lights in the hallway were dark. […] The chain latch on the door was broken. I did not feel safe. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not worth saving a few bucks"
The only good thing was the desk clerk was very friendly and nice. I just needed a room over night and tried to save a few bucks. Boy did I regret it. This hotel was nasty. My bed linens had burn holes and stains on them and the bed wasn't even made neatly. In the bathroom there was mold growing around were the grab bar attached to the wall. The light […] fixtures were missing bulbs. The elevator was filthy. My room was next to the elevator so I had to listen to it clang and bang all night long. Stay away from this place or you will regret it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I was going to write a scathing report because of the terrible service. But I'll temper it, and just say the experience was bad. Had to wait an hour for a room then the room I get wasn't even ready bed was slept in. I did get another room but wasn't satisfied but I was tired so I sucked it up. If u pay anything over $39 shoot yourselfGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Do NOT Stay Here!!!"
07/08/14 Tara M Salisbury, Maryland
My husband and I booked a night here to stay then visit the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame the next morning. The hotel was cheap so I wasn't expecting much. I told my husband before we got there not to expect anything spectacular because it was only 1.5 stars and it was cheap, but it should be suitable for 6 hours of sleep. I thought that all the reviews I was reading were just people being ridiculous. We were about to find out how right they all were! The hotel is very small and the parking lot is small as well, which isn't a huge deal. The lobby of the hotel wasn't too bad, but the TV in there was so loud you couldn't hear yourself think. We checked in and went up to our room. We checked for bed bugs, which we do at every hotel after I got bed bugs at a HILTON. There was no fitted sheet on the bed. We checked the sheets to make sure they were clean, they were not. The pillows had what looked like dried blood on them, there was a dead fly in the sheets, and the sheets were stained as well. We called the guy at the front desks and asked for some clean sheets. We figured this was a reasonable request. He comes up to the room, which no sheets, and says, "So the sheets aren't clean enough for you. Let me see." He then walks into the room and we show him what we were talking about. He goes, "No, these sheets are clean, they are just not clean enough for you." I couldn't believe what I was hearing. My husband then told him that they did not look clean. He said that the sheets were cleaned every day and that "this is a 1.5 star hotel, if you want something nicer I'll give you a refund and you can go stay at a four star hotel, we are just a 1.5 star hotel, this is what you get at a 1.5 star hotel. These sheets are clean, they're just not up to your standards." I then asked if we could just please get clean sheets, we could put them on ourselves. He told us no. Needless to say, we left that hotel. I can't believe the hotel owner thinks it is okay to put dirty sheets on a bed and the customer service was horrible! Never again.
"terrible, terrible, terrible"

This was the worst place every that I will not even give it the lowest rating. We arrived at approximately 5pm and our room was not even cleaned. Door was standing open and beds not made. Maid mad our beds quickly with what looked like dirty, used sheets. That was all that she did. There werentowels in the bathroom but also looked like they were used and then folded up again...very stained, or something. Coffee pot had half a pot of coffee left in it from someone before us. Toilet paper was almost gone with no other rolls in bathroom. Electrical outlets don't work properly. Plugged phone in over night and was not charged in the morning due to loose plugs. Curtains falling down. Continential breakfast...what a joke. Coffee so strong you could've sliced it with a knife, no juice in machine. Our keys were only programmed for 1 night and had reservations for two nights. We had the do not disturb sign out so the maid didn't go in the room while we were gone, but to our surprise someone was in the room while we were gone...things were moved and towels were missing. Swimming pool was green. Will advise folks not to stay here. It was like a druggie motel. They had excuses for everything that we complained about.
"Like staying at a dungeon"
05/28/14 PhishVT Chicago, Illinois
I wasn't expecting too much for the price. Just a clean room. My 7 hour stay from midnight to 7a.m (couldn't wait to leave!!!!) revealed the following....Dark hallway due to broken ceiling fixtures, two lights out in my room, broken tv, broken remote, only one hand towel in bathroom (took until next morning to get just one bath towel for two of us), broken clock, dirty carpet, pubic hair found on sheets, disgusting breakfast room with almost nothing you would eat. Furthermore, I had a prepaid reservation, but the night clerk still insisted in charging me again (disputed charge w/ credit card co.). The drivers license scanner was broken, so they took a photocopy of my license and said that state law required them to keep it for a year, even though an electronis copy would have been far more secure. The exterior photo that Americas Best puts on their website has been photoshopped to hide the poor condition of the parking lot and to erase other obvious signs of exterior deferred maintenance. If you stay here, at any price, it is your own fault.
"OK for very cheap"
05/19/14 zen3107 Flushing, Michigan
The rate on this hotel was very inexpensive- almost half anything nearby or in Cleveland, so as the saying goes, you get what you pay for - I needed a room as I was running the Cleveland Marathon- needed to be relatively close so I would have time to drive in and park before the race prior to 7am- so that is why I chose this hotel - The hotel is quite a way down Brecksville rd- almost to where it becomes I-77 again- we missed it the first time by as there is a Mexican place right in front of it- RIght next door is a dump or quarry or something- shielded fairly well by the trees in the parking lot- but we saw a stray cat as we went in and when we mentioned it to the manager she said, "oh yeah, there are 4 of them" The main doors were broken so the side door is taped so it always opens- so no secure entry - this door opens right to where the elevators are- The manager was nice and got us an extra blanket- which was not folded, however when she brought it to us The room had a microwave (older turn the dial style) Mini fridge 4 cup coffee maker- only one packet of coffee and it was decaf the bathroom was very shabby- one set of thin, small towels- the hand towel had holes I turned on the hot water and the handle came off in my hand- luckily I could screw it back on the sink stopper was closed with no way to open it, but I could pull it out the front panel of the sink was missing- the area around the tub was stained- not inviting for a shower- no bath mat The pillows were flat and the pillow cases and sheets had holes the blanket seemed ok - the furniture was dusted and the carpet looked freshly vacuumed- but we still didn't walk barefooted - our window overlooked the parking lot, so we could see our car There is supposed to be a breakfast in the morning but since we left at 5:15am I didn't see it OH and whomever else was on the floor decided to come in at 2am and yell at each other up and down the hallway - not really the hotels fault but not good for sleeping! Overall, if you just need a place to sleep for a night, its fine- would not stay there more than one night at a time for sure- It is just run down and a little shabby- I just find it hard to deal with linens with holes in them-
"Not as Bad As Reviews Say"
05/04/14 HypnotistJimmyG G
As a touring comedy hypnotist, I search for the cleanest, affordable room I can find as I perform throughout North America & pay for my own accommodations America's Best Hotel in Independence Ohio came up as a cheap room that was only 15 minutes from my After Prom high school show at the Independence Ohio Civic Center. The hotel - Basic, Very EZ check-in & check out. Friendly helpful staff. Location - safe. Great mexican and american restaurants in immediate area. The room was clean, very comfortable king size bed, ok shower, nice TV PLUS fridge. Minuses: YEP , you smell smoke in hallways... Also, the heater smelled of smoke the 1st couple times it kicked on. After that, it was fine. BEST FEATURE ... well... the old stucco walls reminded me of vacationing in Cuba resorts ... lol, I travel a lot and find that most negative reviews are from people expecting 5 star treatment at 1 star prices. This motel is a good cheap nights stay if your just passing thru. Good overnight crashpad. My Rating - $65 room at a $59 price ;-) North America's Most Hilarious Hypnotist, JimmyG! www.hypnotistjimmyg.com www.facebook.com/JimmyGsHypnoticComedyShow
"Please keep driving!"
02/25/14 Tim363 Cleveland, Ohio
Please find somewhere else to stay... this place is ran horribly. The room we were given had no coffee pot, towels, or working fridge. We were moved to another room but it had no working remote control,,,it was cleaned fairly well. when we laid down and pulled the covers back the bedding had too many wholes to count the pillows were not comfortable, our bedding was then changed. We could not wait for morning to come so we could leave!
"So Bad we didn't even stay there!"
12/10/13 holysmoley Erie
Was just going to spend the night and all we needed was a clean place to sleep and shower and get going the next morning; The outside of the motel should be a clue on how bad things would go. Entered the dark lobby and no one was there. Waited 5 minutes for the clerk to show up. Checked us in and we went up the elevator to our room on the 4th floor. The door open, went in and in 1 minute decided there was no way we were going to stay there. This old Days Inn looked like it was renovated taking a half a day at the most to do so. Back to the empty lobby we went to check out and had to wait 20 minutes this time for the clerk to show herself. Thank God there was no problem getting credited for the room. Oh by the way, the breakfast nook was about 20 feet by 15 feet with what looked like only one table and chair there. Spent a comfortable and relaxing night at the Hyatt House. Great place!
"Not the best place to stay"
11/06/13 gary k Columbus, Ohio
When I first checked in the rooms did not look that bad but after being their for two weeks it was terriable. they did not leave wash cloths hand towels or towels everyday I had too go to front desk to pick them up and half the time the towels were not fit to use because they were still dirty. Some days no hot water, toilet paper was not left or cups. Rooms were not clean very well. They advertised HBO which they did not have. Continetal breakfast did not have much of a selection when they had one.This place sucks and I reccomend no body stays here.
"Dissatisfied in Independence"
10/08/13 Albert M Idaho Falls, Idaho
When we attempted to enter the first room to which we were assigned, Room 411, the key-card worked, but the door was very difficult to open. After several failed attempts, I managed to "shoulder" the door open. The latch was not withdrawing far enough, causing the door to open a fraction of an inch without excessive force. Our online reservation, and confirmation, indicated a King Non-Smoking room for two adults. The room was a King Non-Smoking, but there was one bath towel and one wash cloth that appeared to have been recently used. There was no microwave oven, and no coffee maker, both of which were advertised as being provided in every room. We went back to the front desk and explained the problems. The receptionist apologized and decided that the quickest resolution was to move us to a different room, to which we agreed. We were assigned to room 314. When we entered the room, we find that it is a King Suite, however, based upon the smell of the room, it is clearly a Smoking room. The room does has a coffee maker, a microwave, and adequate clean towels, so we decided to overlook the smoke smell, and went to dinner. When we returned, it was now dark, so we turned on some lights. Two of the overhead CFL lights did not work, and another flashed like a strobe light. I would like to note that we discovered this specific hotel through an advertisement in an Ohio Travel Coupon booklet we got at an Ohio Turnpike travel plaza. The ad claimed that this hotel was "Newly Renovated 2013." The coffee table molding was loose, and there where cigarette burn holes in the bed spread and sheet. It appears that additional renovation is needed. In the morning, we went to the breakfast nook. There was no coffee. At our request, the receptionist made a pot of coffee. There were bagels on the counter in a plastic bag with a twist tie. Not in the covered storage bin where they should have been and no tongs. In contrast, the waffle maker worked quite well, but there was more maple syrup on the counter than in the syrup dispenser. The counter, in general, was not being kept clean. We have stayed at several other Americas Best Value Inns previously; two others in the past week. We have always been very satisfied with the condition and cleanliness of these hotels, but we will certainly not stay at this hotel on our return trip, and not likely ever again. In our opinion, this hotel is not being maintained in accordance with the chain's normal high standards.
"Disappointing at Best"
06/18/13 Pat B Fredericksburg, Virginia, United States
We found this hotel in one of the coupon books you can pick up at various rest stops en-route. We've had good luck with these in the past, so we thought we'd give it a try. NOT a great hotel, even at rock bottom prices. The facility is old, and it really shows it's age. The carpets are stained and dirty, and the place seriously needs a remodeling. This is doubly bad since I read they were remodeled in 2012. The on-line resources I used had pictures that misrepresented the property by 1000%. The room was reasonable clean... no bedbugs or anything like that, but for the price (even a substantially discounted price) it was not a good value. I will not return
