This is probably the worst motel I've stayed at in my 64 years of existence. I arrived after midnight and my taxi driver and I searched for the property for nearly an hour. When my "navigator" on my cell phone said, "you are here," we still couldn't see the place. There was no
illuminated outside sign, indicating the motel and, several calls to the night manager, met with rather terse directions.
I finally arrived and saw a paper sign, "America's Best Inn" in the
office window. The desk clerk had some kind of difficulty with my credit card and stated he would have his boss take care of it the following day. I then was helped to my room by my loyal cab driver....
struggling to get my rolling walker over the curb as there was no sort of cut out for the disabled.
The motel was supposedly completely renovated in 2005. Good grief, what did it look like before? I felt like I was entering the Bates Motel from "Psycho." I will concede that the shower did have hot water but there was little else of a positive nature. The carpets weren't very clean, the bed took up almost the whole room, though there was a small sofa in a nook. I was out of there as quickly as possible the next morning.
Several hours later, on checking into a Holiday Inn, I was looking at my Bank of America online when I noted TWO pending charges for my night's stay at America's Best Inn. I immediately called the manager and asked that this be corrected right away.
Imagine my horror when I returned to San Francisco, a week later, only to find that both charges had cleared on my bank statement. I filed a claim to have one removed, called America's Best ( ? ) Inn and demanded that they correct the matter from their end.
I just hope my review can prevent another person from spending a night here. My rate for the night was about $75, I believe, with taxes, etc but I have stayed at places in the FLL area that are quite decent for about $100. Avoid this one.

Stayed here in between our flight and boat departure,cheap and comfortable. Small but it's perfect if you just want a bed for the night. Anything past that would a different story. It's located near a port with the closest restaurant a diner ~15 min walk through a low populated warehouse district.

Absolutely disgusting. Avoid this place like the plague. Stains on the sheets, urine on the toilet when I checked in. Since I paid in full at first I had to eat the first night even though I didn't stay longer than 20 minutes.

The worst motel I have ever stayed in. The bed was unstable, the bathroom was atrocious. The sink kept clogging up, the water pressure was low and the bath tube was so rusty that it was impossible to take a shower especially since the cold water did not work at all. I wouldn't even recommend this motel to my worst enemy.

Bad neighborhood , old rooms , tiny TVs , ac barely cooled down room . The price was cheap and the hotel was close to the airport so I decided to give it a try . Night staff told me I should have a taxi in 5 minutes . I was ready 3 hours before my flight so I decided to relax have a coffee and then have them call me a taxi . 20 minutes no taxi . Called a second company , 20 more minutes , still no taxi . Now I'm getting worried because only 1.5 hours before my flight with no taxi in site . I express my frustration with the clerk and how it was wrong that they quoted me 5 minutes and now I'm going to be rushed for my flight . Of course I'm angry . But still respectful . He tells me I have to wait outside in the 90 degree heat for my taxi since I expressed my frustration to him . I never called him names . Only said that this was bull shxxxt and they shouldn't have quoted me 5 minutes . Still , he kicks me out of the office ! Glad I went outside since I flagged a rental car shuttle kind enough to drive me to the airport . I would never recommend this place since they were so rude and the place was pretty run down even for an entry level hotel . Also . Breakfast is supposed to be from 6-10 but at 6:30 the door was still locked . Stay far away from this place .

Dirty, disgusting, run down, filthy bathrooms, filthy carpeting, stained sheets, and the smell was like a nasty men's gym locker and cat piss. By far the worst hotel experience in my life (43 years now). There are creepers walking around the property. No bed bugs in my room so that was a plus. If you fancy crack den type accommodations this place will suit your needs.

We were booked in here a couple of years ago , booked through expedia .
When I saw it I refused to stay and was unable to get a refund as I was too late . I was ok with that , my fault ... But I would never recommend this ... Very sketchy part of town

Ok, this place is not a high end hotel ( hence the price) if you need a decent place to stay for a night or two this is a cost effective option. Otherwise pay twice the amount and stay at a big chain hotel.
The room we were in was clean, bath tub had some rust stains but overall everything was clean and neat. It appears they did some renovations within the last few years ( done on the cheap) but, clean.
The neighborhood is industrial.
The bed was extremely hard which I don't mind but, my GF didn't care for.
The staff was very friendly. And there is a very clean pool.
TV is tiny but, all we were looking for was a place to sleep for 2 nights.
Update (second night)
SCRATCH ALL OF THE ABOVE!
Roaches everywhere in the room. Ended up packing up and leaving at 1am.

The short review: There is no hotel nearer to the airport. It is budget-priced, but for those used to staying in "historic" small inns, you may be surprised. If you require Holiday Inn-style amenities, look elsewhere (and expect to pay handsomely).
Longer review: I was visiting the area October 2010, and booked $56+tax/night on Expedia. After a bit of trouble locating the inn (I was told the sign was blown down during a windstorm), I was greeted warmly by Chris, the innkeeper. He quickly checked me in and reminded me about the "manager's cocktail hour" (only a free can of beer, but hey!). The 25-room inn was originally built 1939 and was remodeled sometime in the past decade. There are also some extended stay apartments available. The small lobby has inexpensive snacks and items to purchase you may have left at home. It is also the location of the cocktail hour and continental breakfast. The room is small, sparsely decorated, but fairly clean. The queen-sized bed was comfy, bedclothes clean. Rooms have coffee maker and array of coffee and teas. The bathroom small (a continuing theme!) but adequate, with a bit of rust on the shower fixture. Shower was hot with plenty of pressure; the sink could use a plumber to help drain quicker. The room was fairly quiet, with a nice, cold, A/C unit. I will mention that I did overhear a guest talking loudly outside my window. TV is small flat-screen with plenty of cable channels.
The cocktail hour, held on the front porch in front of the lobby (so that the innkeepers can hear the phone) was cordial, and I got to meet Mie, the other innkeeper. (A side note about Mie: When a cab failed to arrive to shuttle a guest to the airport, Mie offered to take her in her own car. Nice touch.) There is a swimming pool that I did not visit. Breakfast was better than I've had at some big hotels--choice of cold or hot cereals, fresh fruit, bagels, coffee, tea, milk, Fresh OJ.
Overall rating: If you on a tight budget seeking an overnight stay near airport and are not concerned with fancy amenities, America's Best Inn cannot be beat.
