Hotel from hell
Aug 31, 2013 by: Christine L from
Last available hotel room on a busy long weekend Saturday night. Room stinks of mould and bleach, stuffy. Dated furnishings which look questionable, almost worth sleeping in our car. If only there were other vacancies nearby we would walk away. Yuck!
Only stay if you're falling asleep at the wheel

On our way to NC I needed to sleep after about 8 straight hours driving. The Royal Farms gas station parking lot didn't cut it during AM drive time & this place was close so I figured I would crash for a couple hours. Let's say the outside appearance is misleading it looked OK as we pulled up in the car. The attendant told me it was a non smoking room, which was cool by me but to my families surprise we open the door and the whole room stunk like 20 years of chain smokers. The bed linens, pillows, you name it. And there was even a clean ash tray available so I can't figure that one out. The small bathroom had some black mold on the ceiling from a room above yuck. The sink faucets were disgusting, like there was dried up "something" on it for sure. No bugs in sight but still... The wall AC was the best thing going. Lastly, after my telling the attendant we needed the room for a few hours, she promptly dialed the phone at 12:30 noon to ask if I was leaving WTF. I should have sucked it up and drove another 10 miles down the road for something worth it. Stay away if you can I can't imagine what the rest of their locations are like.
IF YOU ARE USING A GPS TO LOCATE THIS HOTEL PLEASE READ!

The hotel stay was very quiet when I was there. Kudos for that. Resturants were very local. The room I stayed in seemed to have new carpeting, fresh paint, (a plus). I got a good nights sleep. Didn't really care for the cereal and milk they had for brkfst. Being that this was my first time traveling to this area (late at night - 12am to be exact) the GPS lead me to a cornfield!! and in the middle of no where my TOM TOM (GPS) said " you have reached your destination". Dark...conrnfield...narrow road...can someone say SCARED!! Very scary! I thought Jeepers Creepers was gonna jump out of the cornfield at any moment! LOL. I thought I got ripped off by booking this hotel online!!! But, I eventually found it. Ok so, a BIG TIP for those using GPS to locate this hotel. Do not enter in the addy of the hotel for your destintion. It leads you to Mt Vernon MD which is very close by. This is what I typed in for the location of the hotel: 30359 Mt Vernon Road, Princess Anne, Maryland <<< DO NOT PUT IN THIS ADDY. Instead search for the point of interest (POI) in Princess Ann, MD and locate Americas Best Value INN on Mt Vernon Road. That's how I was able to backtrack to the where the hotel was located. Technology smh. If you get lost call them. They are located across the street from McDonalds and on the same side as Hardees. Happy travels! BTW the hotel attendant said my GPS was not the only one that has lead people to that cornfield.
quite and near by a good restaurant

This hotel is very average, about what you'd expect for the price. No complaints about the room, and there is a good restaurant right beside it. Our only problem was with the reservation system. We had booked using the America's Best Value web site, and got a confirmation, which I printed to take along. When we arrived the receptionist said there was no such reservation in their system. After I showed her the confirmation she made a phone call to someone and I could not understand her conversation as it was in another language. When she hung up she had me fill out a complete reservation form, and thankfully did have a room available for our two-night stay, which was fortunate as there were some high traffic events going on in the area. I asked why our reservation was not in the system and she could not explain it. When we got home I got an email from ABV thanking us for staying there and so I wrote back and asked for an explanation of this problem. I received a prompt reply stating that each hotel is independently owned and that such inquiries can only be answered by them, which seemed odd since I used the brand's reservation system. All in all, I have no confidence in their online system and am not likely to stay in on of these hotels again.
