    I stayed 3 nights was going to add a night but the girl made it seem like it was a problem doing it so we only stayed the 3 nights. Every day we had to go to the office and have them reset are keys which made us upset because every time we go to the office no one was in there.

    The family/couple who greeted me were very nice. They handled our reservation quickly and efficiently- the husband arrived at our room, turned on the lights and a/c before we got there. The location is excellent- three blocks from a wonderful Children's museum, Naval Hospital, Portside, and Interstate system. There are several restuarants closeby, the closer ones being fast food. The pool was clean and well tended. They offer a continental breakfast from 7-9 am that does help start the day.

    My first concern was that you had to be "buzzed in" to the lobby. As former law enforcement, this is usually a sign of previous trouble.-A Dead spider (size of a dime) was in the bathroom, it smelled like urine at the sink outside the bathroom, the drapes needed additional curtain pins, and several spackled areas on the walls needed paint. There was a dirty towel and bar of soap in the bathroom when we checked in.- Efficiency units being used by weekly/monthly renters.Other guests were loud, waking us at 11, midnight, 2, 3 am; One guest walked in front of our room, talking on his cell phone.I Could hear his conversation about a certain girl and his marijuana deals.

    Nothing this place was so nasty! Do not go here! The pictures are so deceiving.

    This hotel was so gross. The floors were sticky and turned are feet black, we had just gotten out the shower and by the time we had gotten dressed and brushed our teeth our feet were black. My boyfriend tried to scrub his feet with a lufa but that didn't work. They didn't give us the bottom sheet that holds to the bed, so if we were to have slept in the bed we would have been directly on a hotel room bed. There were cracks and holes in the wall, the toilet was not clean. My boyfriend and I had to sleep on the car while the other two had to sleep in the room since there was no room in the car for them. When I tried to call the front desk they told they could not help me till the morning, We did not have the money to go get another hotel. Hopefully someone can learn from our situation!

    The staff was friendly and accomodating. The bed was comfortable and the water pressure in the shower was good. There was plenty of hot water. The room was equipped with all the basic things you would expect even in a budget hotel. It amused me that the words "Best Value" were covered over on the sign. The experience could make a good story.

    Even though the room was a non-smoking room, it smelled of stale cigarette smoke. The staff willingly transferred me to another room that was only a bit better. The hotel is a bit seedy and in need of renovation. The lobby does not make a good first impression. The room was in better shape than the lobby--except for the bathroom which needed wall and ceiling repairs better than the sloppy attempts at covering things up.

    Very Nice to have a last minute booking available. Decent Hotel not five stars on cleanliness but good enough to crash a night or two in.

    Very kind people working there- as long as you show them courtesy! We were there for a rowdy few days and they were very tolerant and helpful. The place felt clean and safe and it was cheap.

    Bathtub could have been cleaner but we paid very little for our stay and considering how well the rest of our stay went, I'd say it was definitely worth it.

    There was no toilet paper in the bathroom when I first arriver therefore called the front desk, using my own cell because in room phones were not working, they did provide toilet paper in a timely manner.

    Dirty and run down. I found previous guests clothes left behind and trash all under bed. Also, room phones do not work.

    The location was excellent.

    The weekend hotel staff did not service the room and actually gave my neighbor's a hard time about having to come in and clean the room. I tried calling several times and no one answered the front desk line, I walked over to ask for more towels and the front desk lady was outside conversing with friends. Once I was able to actually talk with her though, the new towels were brought to my room within 10 minutes.

    I hated the whole experience it's not a place I will recommend to anyone. I will not pay even $1 for such a place cos it is not worth it

    Everything about the place and experience is bad

    Located in what seemed like a safe neighborhood.

    No longer associated with "America's Best Value Inn & Suites"...now just an independent "America's Inn & Suites". Run down, mattress frames in parking lot, over-spray of paint everywhere, room felt very unclean. It was basically the sketchy-est looking place around.

    we arrived went to our room and realized the phone did not work or the refrigerator the room was very nasty, well we were moved to another room and the beds the mattresses had a dip in them very uncomfortable this room was very nasty also there were only 4 of us to a room only allowed 2 towels, when taken a shower the water stayed in the tub would not drain out, i do not recommend anyone to stay at this inn it is located in portsmouth va. on effingham st. very nasty. really would like my money back but i know it is impossible.

    When we arrived (an hour after our check in time) our room was not ready, they tried to take us to a different room but couldn't find the key so the lady was yelling to get someone to bring her a key to let us in (we waited about 30 minutes just to see a room that we didn't even end up staying in). There were no sheets on the bed, the A/C didn't work, there was no toilet paper, and there were spider webs and bugs all over the walls and windows. The pictures online were not at all what the place looked like, this place was very run down and poorly managed. We were able to get most of our money back, but I definitely would not recommend this place to anyone!
