Americas Best Value Inn - Lake City

Traveller (21)
Room & Suite (35)
Welcome to Americas Best Value Inn Lake City Florida. Lake City is the first major stopping point for travelers as they come into Florida. Also known as the “Gateway to Florida” the town is at a cross roads between two major interstates; I-10 going east toward Jacksonville/ Atlantic coast or west toward Tallahassee / Florida panhandle. Many continue south on I-75 toward central or south Florida. Points of interest near are historic downtown Lake City and lake DeSoto, Osceola National Forest, Stephen Foster State Folk Culture Center and Suwanee River, Itchetucknee State Park, and Olustee Battlefield. The Inn has free WI-FI throughout, a large outdoor pool, 24-hour front desk staff, a morning coffee and tea station in lobby, and ample parking. All guestrooms include a microwave, mini-fridge, coffeemaker, free local calls, and 32” flat screen TV with satellite service including HBO, ESPN, and Univision. The Inn offers Non-smoking and a limited number of smoking rooms. Smoking is Not Permitted on walkways, in front of guest room doors, or in front of A/C vents, however designated outdoor smoking areas exist for guests. No local guests allowed within a 50 mile radius. Sorry no pets allowed. Our mission is simple, to provide a very clean room at an affordable rate, in a safe family friendly environment, in which everything is in good working order. Americas Best Value Inn Lake City is ideal for budget minded guest stopping overnight, visiting local family or area, or on a longer term corporate assignment or business trip. We've Got You Covered from the time you hit the road until you head hits the pillow.

The staff was nice. Instead of the typical meh breakfast they gave little goodie bags with a banana and some muffins. The room cleanliness was fine. The room itself was pretty standard. All in all, pretty much what you would expect from a budget hotel. Not amazing or horrible. I

Hello Adam G. Thank you l leaving us a review. I apologize for the pillows, but am glad that everything else was satisfactory. We actually are in the process of replacing pillows, one building at a time. Each bed will have memory foam and poly-fill pillows. We tried a small order of thick poly foam pillows, with some mixed results. We plan to replace the extra-thick poly-fill with normal weight poly pillows. The extra filled pillows will be available upon guest request. Hope to see you soon.

Clean, comfortable and the best part was the to-go breakfast bags they make for you in the morning! The staff here is one of the best of this level of hotel. Great place to stay if you are passing through.

We were traveling to Georgia and decided to stop for the night. This room was clean and comfortable. If you're looking for a fancy hotel, then you will be disappointed but if you're looking for a clean, safe place conveniently located right off 75, then this fits the bill. The

Hello Donna B Thank you for leaving a review and your comments are concerning to us. We are very serious and pride ourselves on cleanliness and sanitation, from proper cleaning practices, rotational spring/deep cleaning to use of hospital grade cleaner / disinfectant. I feel that this is an isolated incident. Please accept our apology, one bug is one too many. I also apologize for the lack of emotion expressed when this was brought to the clerk's attention. However, she did note this incident in our logbook with your room number at 7:10AM on the Friday Aug 10, 2018. This room was immediately treated, inspected, and resolved. We serve a bagged breakfast to-go, containing all individually wrapped items. It contains muffins, a granola bar, and a fruit to be pealed. Our team of 16 employees and myself encourage and invite the traveling public to come and take a look at our rooms and property, we are certain that you will like what you see.

I’m reviewing this place based upon price and for the price it is a 5/5. Hotel room exceeded my expectations: clean, well maintained, nice staff. I couldn't ask for a better night stay at a motel. It isnt a four star resort but is a great two star place. You can tell the people

Do you have semi truck parking available?
Do you have 1st floor handicap rooms or elevator
Unsure of that. You may have to call. The room we were in did not have enough room to be a handicapped room.

Pet friendly?
Don't know. It is probably not pet friendly. I usually go out of my way to stay at "no pets" hotels because of my wife's allergies.
