I arrived 1am ish (after and 8.5 hour drive) The attendant was away from the desk and I waited approximately 5-9 minutes for him to return. He was very upbeat for the time of night and he made me feel welcome. I wasn't sure I was even at the right hotel being from out of town the only sign stating...

My husband and I booked this place a few weeks ago due to the affordable rate and its close proximity to the Ohio Turnpike and Cedar Point. We were a little nervous reading some of the reviews after we booked. However, we were impressed that the GM has commented on virtually all of the reviews, both good and bad. To...

The lobby area smelled like stagnant cigarettes. The room was absolutely filthy! The floor appeared not to be swept for some time. The carpet was stained and matted down in spots. The A/C appeared to have bird poop in the inside grate. The price wasn’t exactly cheap at $109 w/tax. The couple traveling with us said their toilet ran all...

Stained towels, bedspread and carpets, felt dirtier leaven after a shower the next day, the only positive is staff very friendly and helpful. We would not stay here again or recommend to anyone.

Here's the deal....it's cheap compared to the other hotels in the area. The 'breakfast' was the only thing I would complain about. It wasn't a breakfast, but that's ok.....it's close to many decent places to eat. No fridge or microwave....but, again...that's OK! The rooms were clean, the staff was fine....What in the world can you complain about when you choose...

Stayed here for one night while in Cedar Point. Honestly, was very scared after reading all of the horrible reviews (I was not the one to make the hotel arrangements). Once we arrived everything looked fine, staff was nice, lobby area was decent and the room was clean. Only had one problem with a friend of mine having a very...

After getting to the Comfort Inn and finding they had overbooked and had to cancel my reservation, they sent me to Americas Best Value Inn. Pulling up and going into the lobby I assumed this place wasn't that bad, especially with the friendly front desk gentleman. Then we got to the room. It looked as if we had walked into...
