I was a little concerned when I first pulled in, but relieved when we went into the room, finding it very clean and ultimately quiet. No frills,but just what we needed on the way back home to Colorado.

Worked fine for what we needed. Pillows sucked-I didn't know you could buy ones that small. Clean room, hot water (that's my hot button), would stay again. If you want nice and fancy, this is not it. For the price, will stay again

After googling several hotels in Hays, I decided that bang for the buck, the America's Best Value Inn would be one. We got a decent price, the front desk lady was equal to her task, and we were favored with a ground floor room. The room was clean, a little tired, but very decent. I'd recommend it if you weren't...

Inexpensive but well maintained, with an efficient, professional staff. This motel filled the bill for an overnight stay with a little flexibility for local tourism. Room size stops just short of seeming cramped. Mine with a single queen bed still had space for an easy chair and a CRT television in a shelving unit. A refrigerator and microwave were stacked...

We were in town for Fort Hays State University's homecoming weekend and stayed here and had a good experience. Check-in staff was very friendly. Room was good-sized, and VERY clean. Nice Oxygenics showerhead with curved shower curtain rod. Comfortable bed with 4 pillows. Had room-darkening curtains that really WORK. We had an issue with the heater in the room, but...

This is an older hotel but a great stay at a great price. In some of the other reviews it mentioned updated, newly renovated rooms, I did not get one of those rooms but I wasn't disappointed. My room was very clean and had everything that I needed. The tv, microwave, and fridge were out-dated but all worked and fulfilled...

This is an older hotel that has had renovations in the recent years. The room we stayed in had new carpet, and a flat screen tv. We enjoyed being able to park right outside of our room and we were also able to get a very reasonable price. We would definitely stay here again!

My 10 year old son and I stopped, in Hays, on our way to Denver from St Louis. All of the hotels were full, except for this one. I, reluctantly, got a room here. The front desk clerks were very friendly during check-in and check-out. I was surprised at how clean the room was and the bed was comfortable (soft)....

We have stopped at this motel on and off for many years. It used to be the Vagabond Best Western. It is older, but clean, allows pets for a $5 fee, and the staff is friendly. It has a microwave and refrigerator in the room. Very good value.
