Among hotels, it offers the most bang for your buck, according to an analysis by Money released earlier this year.
America’s Best Value Inn was the winner in the budget hotel category. Its rooms cost around $75 per night, which is the lowest rate among the 25 budget hotel chains in Money’s analysis.
