"Glad it wasn't in the middle of winter..."
The room was very clean, but there was a rather annoying 'ticking' sound coming from behind the refrigerator and the remote control for the air conditioner/heater did not appear to work - never did get the room to warm up past 65 degrees.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The clerk was very friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great place to stay when going to Eldora, clean and comfy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"A very nice surprise"
My wife and I traveled to this area for a benefit and booked this room a few days before our stay. I requested a ground floor because of health reasons and when we arrived, we were allowed to check in early, had a handicapped room(yeah), was greeted by a very helpful lady (who gave us two gifts for the benefit), and the room although a little dated […] was very clean...quiet...and perfect to our needs. The breakfast was good with a very large and private eating area, and all the staff couldn't have been nicer. I would stay here again if in the area and recommend it to anyone.

"Super place to stay!"
A great place and people. They are remodeling and updating but did not affect the comfort of our stay. Staff were excellant and very helpful. Deb Graham the front desk manager was the best,very personable and most informative about the area. Would definately go back and stay here again. A thumbs up for a job well done.Genuine Expedia guest review
I wasn't expecting much for the $80 a night rate, but the room was dirty and smelled awfulGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Didn't expect a large complex with multiple buildings. Room was clean and seemed recently renovated as compare to the photos online.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A nice clean place to stay"
The Americas Best Value Inn & Suites-St. Marys was a perfect spot to relax and unwind. My Cousin and I were there on a two day fishing trip. The rooms were clean , comfortable and quiet and the staff members were very friendly. Be sure to check out Duffy's , a small bar/carryout located behind the hotel. Duffy's has a warm and friendly atmosphere and […] make one of the best pizzas I've ever eaten. All in all you get a very nice hotel in a decent location and at a very affordable price.

"Reasonable and Clean"
This Motel is older but well maintained. The beds were comfortable, with comfy pillows and decent linens. Breakfast was fair enough, the usual fruit, cereal, cold boiled eggs, etc. Reasonably priced, nothing fancy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice inexpensive place."
We spent four days for a family event. I was pleasantly surprised by our room - very comfortable and nice. The manager greeted us each morning at breakfast and even extended breakfast when we had misread the sign and came in a few minutes late. We will stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"could be better"
Overall it was ok. I never got clean sheets for the three days I was there which sleeping on the same sheets is gross. A little expensive for the three days.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Affordable and very convenient for our needs."
I would recommend this hotel as the personnel were friendly and the room was prepared early for us as we needed to store our clothes to attend an heart-breaking funeral. We called from our car, as we were running late, and the hotel personnel made sure our rooms were ready early and the were. Duffy's, a bar and pizza/sandwich place, part of the hotel, […] was just what we needed after a long, hard day. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Perfect for our trip to Eldora Speedway"
My husband and I were fortunate enough to get tickets for the NASCAR Truck Series debut on dirt at Eldora Speedway. We wanted to find a comfortable hotel with a good value for a couple of nights. America's Best Inn was perfect!! Rooms were clean and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. This is a very small town and they were overrun with 20,000 […] NASCAR fans and they handled if flawlessly!! We will be returning next year and hopefully staying at this same hotel. I read lots of reviews before booking and everyone raved about the cleanliness and friendliness at this establishment and they were correct. It is a simple hotel with everything you need for a comfortable stay: clean facilities, friendly helpful staff, continental breakfast, free wifi and an on site restaurant.

"One night on the way"
I flew into Dayton and was on my way to a business meeting. I chose this hotel as good place to stop on the way. I arrived at 11 PM and left at 6 AM. As a place to stay on the way, it was great. Comfortable, good service and quiet. What more can you ask for an overnight stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Best place in St. Marys"
They handled a power outage in the neighboring towns well and accommodated many people that needed a place. The room we stayed in was very clean and comfortable. The staff was very considerate and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I thought this hotel was just as well maintained and decorated as some of the more expensive chains I have stayed in. The room was very clean, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The free breakfast was simple, but good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

We would not recommend this motel. We got their last room available and since there was a race and tractor pull in town they would not honor any discounts. I know that is their right but we could not book ahead as we had to make a last minute decision due to being on a motorcycle and the weather. It have very limited ammenities and is rather run down. Breakfast was ok and desk staff was friendly enough.
"Not bad at all"
05/18/14 Don w Cincinnati, Ohio
I stayed here for a fishing tournament. My family joined me and it was nice. However, I can say the TV was small and had some waves in the picture (didnt care) the fan in the BR was very loud, (didnt care) and the ice box didnt get very cold. It was clean and had hot water, fresh towels and enough room. Thats all I was looking for. The wi-fi works and that is always good. Nothing spectacular but not a bad place to stay. Overpriced in my opinion, but the least expensive in the area. they said they had breakfast opening early at 5 am for the fishermen. I was at the boat ramp at 5 am...

This is my very first review: For travel on 1-10-2014 I travel for my job,3-6 nights a week ..I always reserve the same,king, smoking, ground floor,late night arrival (normally 10 pm) ...I arrived at 11:15 pm & was so relieved that they had held my room,..because I had no phone or internet service in their area to give them a call...Normally ALL Hotel/Motel chains, give the room away after 8 ..even with a note for late arrival..I met 2 different ladies, the first checked me in, very nice ...the second checked me out, I told her that I must say that I was impressed with her hotel..because the last time I had stayed at an American Best Value ..was down right scary...& that I was very reluctant with this reservation...with that said, the room was nice, large, tv worked, internet was a bit slow, but that happens, but the most important thing to me it was CLEAN... & fresh coffee!! ..If my job takes me back within that area, I will not hesitate to reserve with them again!!
"A home away from home."
11/16/13 Sean P Celina, Ohio
We were doing a staycation where we stay in the area, but we don't stay at home. Originally, we went to the America's Best Value Inn for Celina, OH. They quoted just under $100 for the night. We've stayed there, and it's not a $100 a night type of room; so, we looked online for competitors that were less expensive. We saw that the St Marys, OH location was cheaper by $35 and thought it might be worth it. I have to say it was well worth it. The drive was 7 min east on the same road, and the rooms were more spacious and cosier. The employees were very helpful and courteous. They made you feel like family. I have to HIGHLY recommend this location for anyone that is going to do anything in the northwest corner of Grand Lake.
"great little hotel"

Stayed here for a race at nearby Eldora Speedway. I was pleasantly surprised by the friendliness of the staff and cleanliness of my room. Would stay here again and recommend to anyone for a weekend at Grand Lake or trip to Eldora Speedway.
"Room was great, service was very good"
08/14/13 Melody P Denver, Colorado
Our room was a king suite on the second floor with a walk out balcony. There was a big king bed in the bedroom and a hide-a-bed in the living room couch. They were both comfortable as far as hotel beds go, we are both middle aged ladies and we didn't have any trouble sleeping at all. The living room, kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom were all clean and comfortable to move around and stay in for the couple of days that we were there. Central air was very comfortable, just like back home. The kitchen even had a bar part with some extra chairs where we sat and had tea with some family that came back from the funeral to visit with us. The bedroom and the living room both had TVs so that was a plus as my sister and I both have different channels we like to fall asleep to. There was a door that separated the two rooms for privacy and that was nice, too. The hotel is down the street from the funeral home. The front desk staff members were each very friendly at check in and also at check out. The maids cleaned our room nice and were very polite. Oh and it turns out there is even a little pizza lounge-we went in and had some popcorn and some pretty good pizza subs there one night before bed, just for a little fun, it felt a bit like when we were young. :) Hopefully it won't be for a funeral, but we both agreed we would stay here again next time either of us come into town.

Usually we stay in Sidney or Wapakoneta Ohio when in the area but decided to try this place to be closer to our usual destinations. We'll go back to the more reliable, familiar chains in the larger towns. Strike 1: Key card would not open door to room. Briefly got the green light, then a buzz with no more green light. Asked for new card(s). New cards didn't work. Asked for a different room and had success. Front desk suspects battery went out in door lock in original room. Strike 2: Entered room to find alarm clock/radio unplugged. Turns out the outlet for it (behind one of two beds) was inoperable. This outlet was also where the bedside lights had to be plugged in. So we were without the use of those lights or a clock. (Thank goodness for cell phones and their alarms.) Strike 3: AC did not cool room to a comfortable sleeping temperature. The front desk clerk was nice, and the front desk area was clean. If things worked, I'd consider this property again, as it is not scary. But once was enough. Three strikes and you're off my list.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay the night in St Mary's. The room was clean and didn't have any spots on the ceilings (number one thing I seem to notice). Some of the buildings look a little rough from the outside, but ours was pretty nice inside. There is a playground for the kids and the pool looked nice and clean even though it was too cold for us to use it. I think the rates are right one the money for what you get and there were no extra charges. The staff was very helpful and polite. The bed was not very comfortable, but it was quiet in our room. P.S. We stayed in the suite that is in the pictures and it looks just like the pictures.
