I was there for four days, room was clean but staff was useless, I reported my room safe didn't work, no one ever showed up (it looked like it just needed a new battery). While checking in I asked to use a rest room, no dice. Internet was iffy.

I was really surprised that there was a Trip Advisor plaque with 4 stars out of 5 on display in the lobby. If AAA were rating this hotel it would be 2 stars. Our room was basic, clean and fit our needs for 1 night but that was it and for $130 I expected more. We had been on the...

The hotel owner and wife Reba, were very accommodating and friendly. I would have liked a few more breakfast choices, but there were restaurants close by. My 9 year old son really liked it and it was clean, and that's all that mattered to me. Will definetly stay there again.:)

Omg!!! Don't stay there. #1 Internet wasn't working properly given that I work hospice. It was essential for me to get on WIFI, I went to speak with the owner (Persian) man or some thing. He was incredibly rude saying he wasn't an IT guy and too bad for me. #2 Our door was broken anyone was able to get!...

This was the first time I had stayed at this motel and I was pleasantly surprised. I stayed two nights over the last weekend. The room was sufficient and I slept well, which is not always the case when I travel. The proprietors were friendly to me and helpful when I could not figure out the remote. Good TV and...

We really enjoyed our stay in the biggest room in this hotel. The service and room were higher than our expectations – a lot of space, kitchen, bathroom and indeed King size bad. There is a shop and Baskin Robbins not far if you want to get some snacks at night :) D & A

My daughter and son-in law live in San Carlos on Howard Street. I planned the trip prior to baby's arrival and felt that it would be best to give the new parents some time for rest and not stay with them. My daughter researched the hotels in close proximity and indicated that Americas Best Value Inn would be a good...

The room is a nice size. The were a number of issues, but most were taken care of immediately. The safe did not work, we had to have pest control come in -- ANTS. I could not sit on the the bedspread, nor did I want my clothes. The bed was comfortable. The best thing at it was the location...

I stayed at ABVI, San Carlos for 4 weeks and it was a good experience. This is managed by hardworking, hospitable and polite couple (Bipin Patel and Vibha Patel). They take care of your convenience and always greet with pleasant smile. They make sure your room is clean every day and you do not have any problem during your stay.
