Your mileage may vary, but this is one of the best minimum wage jobs I've had.

It's a job, but nothing spectacular.

Front Desk Associate (Former Employee)
Columbus, MS

I worked at Americas Best Value Inn full-time for more than a year

ProsThe customers and co-workers were great. The work was simple and easy. Mostly a stress free environment.

ConsUnfortunately the management could use some work. If you asked for specific time off two months in advance you should be able to get it unless there is an emergency. The managers would consistently have family "occasions" come up at the last minute that they had to go to and you just couldn't get off.

Advice to Senior ManagementAppreciate your employees more. Yes they can be replaced but they are the first impression of your company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Great Family Ethics

Front Desk Manager (Current Employee)
Stockbridge, GA

I have been working at Americas Best Value Inn full-time for more than a year

ProsEasy to apply, still uses paper application and easy to get direct contact to management. Great family ethics, provides you with ownership of your workplace. After training you basically run the show on how to run your shift with in reason. No one over your shoulder and owner is a awesome person. Very protective of staff.

ConsDue to lack of business wages are extremely low if you do not live in the area it is not worth the drive. No real opportunity to advance but it is a great place to build up positive point on resume'. It seems to be a hub for very diverse customers at time you deal with drug addicts drunks and prostitutes.

Advice to Senior ManagementI enjoyed my time here, hope business improves, wish this company nothing but the best!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Night Auditing

Night Auditor (Current Employee)

I have been working at Americas Best Value Inn full-time for less than a year

Prosgreat experience working at this place...always wanted to do this

Youngest person working there and didn't feel comfortable working with all older people.

Housekeeper (Current Employee)
International Falls, MN

I have been working at Americas Best Value Inn part-time for less than a year

ProsMy boss was really nice, she wasn't the head housekeeper as the head housekeepers husband was sick so she was gone a lot. I was the first person she hired and she made me feel comfortable and showed me what I needed to do. They paid on time with no questions asked.

ConsThe age ranges was not very diverse as I was the youngest one working there by years and I felt very awkward. There was a lot of drama between all the housekeepers. A lot of the housekeepers took smoking breaks right in front of the hotel not even five feet from the entrance.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure not to have your employees smoking right in front of the hotel. It is very unattractive and quite disgusting and repulsive.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Small but friendly hotel

Front Desk Clerk (Former Employee)

I worked at Americas Best Value Inn

ProsI only worked here due to schedule issues but overall, I actually enjoyed it. The guests for the most part were usually nice. My supervisor actually treated you like a person and I got along with my co-workers.

ConsThe only thing I didn't like, which was the main reason I had to leave, are the long hours by yourself in the hotel.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere should be a way where two clerks can work a shift. It definitely leads to better problem solving.
