"a great room at a perfect rate"
I really enjoyed staying at America's best. My bed was very comfortable. The room was spotless. There was a microwave and refrigerator in the room. Overall you definitely will enjoy a bug free stay and that is a plus. It was worth the money. I will definitely stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Second Worst in my life"
I've only stayed at one place worse than this one in years of travel. Of the two elevators, only one works and it takes forever; once inside one wonders how old it can be, it was dilapidated. Stepping out into the hallway it just looked seedy and opening the door to my room I was greeted by a single curtain hung at each end but swagging at all spots […] between. The shower curtain was torn and the sheets had several cigarette holes burned in them. When I went down for breakfast, it was pitiful and there was no effort to improve anything - the syrup bottle had a broken lid and dripped syrup everywhere, the waffle maker stuck so much it was unusable and they had no cooking spray to fix it. The milk for cereal sat out unrefrigerated for the duration of several hours. As the milk got warmer by the hour, the coffee got colder since it was not on a brewer. There was hardly anything to recommend this property aside from its exterior which looked reasonably attractive but it was just heavy make up on a hooker. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel was a little run-down"
The hotel was okay for the price but certainly nothing special. Pool was nice for the kids A lot of the shrubbery outside is overgrown. Modest continental breakfast served. Probably better for business travelers or young adults who are not especially picky.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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.

Dirty, cig burns in carpet. Low quality towels etc. really needs an improvement. Relocated to another hotel for second weeks stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very run down"
The staff was friendly enough. That's about it. The pool was still green (in June), but being cleaned to open in a few days. The breakfast had stale bagels and the orange juice machine didn't work or wasn't pulled in. Did not try the waffles and no milk for the cold cereal, we passed. The room was freshly painted and the bed comfortable. The telephone […] didn't work at all (not even a dial tone), the coffee maker didn't work and there weren't any cups if it had. The dinasour TV didn't have a remote and there was mold around the tub. The walls were very thin and you could hear the people next to you and across the hall (yelling). The key didn't work the second day and rather than reprogram it, the desk clerk just let us in. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"You get what you pay for"
Stayed in Cleveland for one night. Went to check out the Casinos in town and just hang out.. The hotels out side is old but acceptable. Easy to get too. Mexican restaurant in front very busy and 10 percent off if you are staying in the hotel . The room was a $60 room. not a 100 to 150 dollar room. Bed comfortable we checked it all out no problems. We […] even do this in Vegas paying more. If you are some one that goes to Vegas you could compare this place to the old side of the Four queens compared to the Golden Nugget. We would go back. Break fast is the hot waffle iron that most places have and cereal bagel coffee and juices. I was happy .If you are a picky pick and old creeps you out do not go. If you want out standing and shiny then dig deep in the Cleveland area and spend the 100 or so bucks. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"WORST Hotel stay ever!"
The person at checkin acted as if he had never used a computer. Was wearing stocking hat, unprofessional clothing, couldn't find my reservation, would take my Itinerary #, chose to look thru their email to find it, 20 minutes later I had a room key. Entire atmosphere in lobby was creepy and felt unsafe. In room found 1 towel with 3 holes in it and a […] tub mat. No other towels!!! Cigarette burns in sheets, Room phone broken, did not work to even call front desk. Scared to sleep on bed linens, slept in my clothes on top of my jacket and used my duffel bag as a pillow. Used my cell phone to call in morning for towels. Was told "we don't have any towels to bring you, will see if I can find any" After 35 minutes, was brought 1 bath towel and hand towel and a tub mat. Too late I had already used my pajamas to dry off!!!! Worst stay ever ever ever. I called my credit card company to put a stop on the charge but was told I need to wait until it hits my account. I will be disputing this charge. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Very Deceiving Picture"
We only needed a room for one night and made a reservation at the last minute; I guess you get what you pay for. Not impressed at all. The coke machine on our floor made a humming noise all night, luckily for us it was at the other end of the hall. The "continental breakfast" was disappointing also. My husband & I are from here, been out of town for […] an extended stay. We had to come back to the area for a few days & decided to get a room instead because we have people staying at our house. Luckily we only booked it for one night because you can't cancel reservations on Expedia. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

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.

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.

"This is where the locals go to hook up with call girls"
10/01/14 Eric C Indianapolis
I was forced to stay here at this hotel for two weeks as the company I work for thought my last hotel was too expensive. I read the reviews on trip advisor and was truly shocked at what I read. I asked to see a room before I checked in they desk clerk agreed as it was a female I wasn't real worried about what another review said and she let me go by myself to the room. The room was not the worst I have seen but very close the rest of the hotel is very dirty the pool was green and it wasn't saint patty's day. Towels are an issue need to asked for some in most rooms price was low (you get what you pay for.) It is how ever close to several places to eat most of them good with Harry's steak house being the closest and best I tried I was here for two weeks so I tried most all of them it seams to be undergoing some remodeling so I hope it gets better but I won't hold my breath.
"Almost ruined our weekend away."
My husband is currently home on leave, as he just got back from deployment in Kuwait. I had a super nice and romatic weekend away planned for us. I reserved our room at this hotel three weeks in advance. Our room, 414, was one I was definitely looking forward to. It came with a jacuzzi and, on the internet, seemed to be just the type of room I had been looking for- at a fairly decent price. Through these reviews, I've seen a couple people stating that this is what you get for a 1.5 star rated hotel. Actually, this hotel does not even deserve 0.5 stars, as it needs to be shut down immediately. When we arrived, we felt uneasy right off the bat. There were stray cats and raccoons all over the parking lot. Empty bottles, cups, and various other garbage lined all the curbing. The pool advertised online looks extremely nice and clean. Don't get your hopes up. Talk about and algae-infested pool, this thing was so dark green it pretty much looked black. Not to mention it's barely big enough for four people to swim in. There's no signs out front that say entrance or welcome- just a couple doors with poorly-lit walkways. Well, we managed to find our way into the main lobby- if that's what you would call it. It smelt musty and smokey and just plain nasty. There were people hanging out and lounging in there, wearing uniforms from the Mexican restaurant that takes up half the hotel's parking lot. There was a fish tank to the left of the front desk that looked like it hadn't been cleaned in weeks. The linens were being semi-organized by getting thrown onto a dirty old cart. The front desk clerk took forever to greet us. When she finally did, she was very unfriendly and not very personable. I asked about a military discount but she quickly shot that down. As I said, I booked our room three weeks in advance, well guess what? They had no idea I was even coming. Nothing in their system showed anything about my booking and they were uninterested in seeing my proof of purchase. Finally, after about 25 minutes of waiting, they booked us as a walk-in. Another staff member hurried up to the room to "make sure it was ready". We went up right after her- she was no where to be found. That jacuzzi I was so excited for? It had hair in it. The curtains were falling off the wall. The bed linens looked like they hadn't been washed in months. The floor throughout the entire hotel looked like they've never been vacuumed. A lot of reviews say the towels and wash cloths looked like they have been used, but we didn't even stay in the room long enough to check that far. We were appalled. We grabbed all our things (which I regret even setting them down) and hurried downstairs to get our money back. We expressed our concerns to the front desk clerk and asked for a refund. She didn't say one word and just grabbed the credit card out of my husbands hand. She was not happy with us- but by goodness what does she expect?! Needless to say, we travelled about 15 minutes away to a Double Tree by Hilton and we are extremely satisfied with everything it has to offer. People were saying "you get what you paid for" on here but I'd like everyone to know that I paid $274 for two nights at Americas Best and I'm getting two nights for $288 at this Hilton. For $14 more, you'd be amazed at the difference. DO NOT STAY AT AMERICANS BEST INN AND SUITES ON BRECKSVILLE ROAD IN INDEPENDENCE OHIO!!!!!!!!!!
"The worst hotel"
This hotel is dirty the house keepers don't do a good job and the management suck. This hotel is ran by Gopi she is the mgr. This place should be shut down I stayed there a few mths ago for a week. The activities ran in this hotel is shameful drug trafficking, females renting rooms selling sex, immigrants living there with no green card, cats running around, it took 30 mins. To get clean towels from the worker. Just awful don't stay here ever.
This hotel was digusting. The only good thing about this place was the staff who were helpful. Hotel was filthy and they did not even have sufficient linen for the rooms. Also the elevator worked occadionally.
"Do Not Stay Here"
08/07/14 John M Annandale, Virginia
My wife and I stayed at this facility for one night (two weeks ago). The second worst hotel I have ever seen (the worst being a Days Inn in Durham, NC...owned I think by the same hotel group)--and I have stayed in hotels around the world...everything from top line to budge hotels. I will review the hotel as we drove up. The parking lot was trashed and poorly lit. The pool (which IS LISTED as an amenity on the hotel's website) was covered in green algae. The reception area was dank and musty (but the clerk was friendly). The elevator barely functioned and the carpet was nasty....the elevator smelled terribly. The hallways smelled of smoke and the carpet was awful. Our room was simply horrible. It smelled like an old tennis shoe. The carpets were stained. The AC register had what looked like food particles in it. The bedding was barely made....the bedding was old and disgusting. We used our own blanket and pillows from our car. The walls had some kind of stains on them. The bathroom....well.....oh my. The towels were STAINED and we could not tell if they had been cleaned or not. The walls were stained and the caulk over caulk over caulk in the bathtub was mildewed, stained, and falling out of the cracks. In a word, disgusting. For the price, we did not expect much...except a clean room. They failed. I cannot see how this place passes any inspections. The staff tried (as opposed to the manager at the Durham Days Inn that was rude and did nothing) but it appears that this place is being run into the ground. DO NOT STAY HERE. It is simply awful in every way.
"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"
05/30/14 Richard S
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
