On the one hand, there's not much to say about America's Best. It's a "value inn," so you get a room, a gazebo, and free coffee. Downtown Phoenix is right outside your door, and the light rail is close enough that you don't have to rent a car. But what sets America's Best apart is the friendly staff. They're talkative and hospitable, and they're very efficient. I found the rooms surprisingly nice and well decorated. Fair warning: They told me they get pretty packed during the cooler months.

Now, the exterior of this hotel might make you think twice about staying here, but don't judge a book by its cover: inside the rooms are very clean and modern. The carpets looked spotless and the room smelled great. Each room comes with a microwave and fridge, a definite plus. This hotel would be perfect for those who want to stay close to downtown, but are on a budget or don't want to spend a lot to stay at a place in the center of downtown. Many restaurants and things to do are within walking distance or a short drive away. Breakfast is included in the small lobby. Expect a waffle maker and coffee. Book early since rooms here go fast. There's no pool here (a common Phoenix amenity), but they've got a pretty patio. It is for sure a budget hotel. They do charge for ice here.

Americas Best Value Inn is a good deal if you need to stay near downtown Phoenix, but you don't want to stay at the high-rise business-class hotels nearby. The lobby is small and no-frills, but it does have complimentary hot coffee in the morning, a waffle iron, cereals/milk and some fresh fruit. I was really pleasantly surprised by how modern and clean the rooms were. The decor is nice for a budget hotel (the nature-inspired green color scheme was nice). The carpets are spotless and there's a nice clean linen smell. The rooms have microwaves and mini-fridges, which are a nice plus. I didn't have to use it, but the front desk staff told me the hotel also offers a complimentary airport shuttle. The only downside is there is no pool, but there is a nicely maintained outdoor patio that is decorated with twinkly lights at night.

First to Review

America’s Best Value Inn, located just about three blocks from downtown Phoenix, seems like a good enough place to rest during your stay in the heart of Phoenix. In terms of amenities, its offerings are pretty standard: a couple beds, a flat-screen TV, microwave, miniature refrigerator, and ironing board in-room. Although the outside is a bit shabby, the rooms themselves are pretty nice, with a modern look about them. A downside is that there isn’t a pool at America’s Best Value Inn, which means that the air-conditioned rooms are really your only refuge from the summer heat. In terms of location, it’s pretty solid: a lot of restaurants within walking distance or a short drive away. Tourist favorites nearby include Matt’s Big Breakfast (expect a line, and come early if you’re trying to go) and Pizzeria Bianco, supposedly the “best pizza” in Phoenix, although I’d tend to personally disagree - just a matter of preference.
