I once stayed at the Value Motel when I
was 13 years old with my Father. We stayed one night provided by a voucher from the salvation army. everything's cool.... free lodging, roof over our head for the night.... signs there's some light... NO! Wrong!.. My Dad and I went accross the street to fred myers, came back someone had broken in out motel room. Stole all of our items of value. My Dad's CD's, (they were a big deal at the time) my song walkman under the pillow... yeah they even got that. Not to mention that in the cheaper rooms there they have to offer, you share your bath room with the motel room next door. So the only thing stopping them from you or you from them is a sliding bath room door with a pathetic latch that can be yanked open fairly easily. To make a long story stort. Someone tried to break in that same night we were robbed from the store trip. My Dad and I sat in silence awaiting the perosn to fully open our portion of the door some he could become knocked out instatly by my Father waiting patiently. The sound stopped... the noise and foots step slowing disipated into the darkness of the room and there we were alone and pretrified, of the Value Motel of Vancouver.
This place I've stayed a number of times since. Always some kind off bummer. the area sucks, lots of cops and if you have a warrent they will have the cops check your name while you sleep. So don't rent a room being on the run and think you wont get a knock on the door at 3:33 in the Moring. Also they're are lots of tweakers, they control the populous of the citizens in the surrounding areas. My bet is don't give just about anyone asking you for change, change... because most likely someone else will come up five minutes - seconds later and ask you the same question and in some cases the same wording. Lastly... this place rents out appartments as well. they're diving but not as bad as the motels. I had a friend from a group home who stayed for free at some creepy black guys appartment there. This dude used to try to hang wit the younger gents.... these must be the kinda people they let live there. I've given guys tons of info on it, so do or don't go there....
Also there is a jail house rumor that the Value Motel is partly owned by the Clark County Sherriffs Dept,
We booked this place at the last minute because we got last minute Duck Tickets.We booked it because it was the cheapest place we could find. It's a great hotel but if any of you are looking to save some $$ then book it at SweetHotelDeals.us They usually have some pretty good deals on there!
Value Motel, Vancouver Wa, I should have slept in my truck!!.
Value Motel in Hazel Dell, Vancouver Wa...I should have slept in my truck!!!
Saw the sign that said vacancy, rooms for $23.00 per night. Inquired only to find out that the $23.00 per night room was a whole in the wall and you had to share a bathroom with your neighbors.... God only knows where these people come from....
So I elected to get the $50.00 room which I thought was gonna be ok.... But, the TV didn't work, bathroom had mold on the walls and ceiling, the room smelled of pet urine, none of the power outlets were usable due to the fact that things wouldn't stay plugged in and kept falling out, and power outlets would spark when plugging things in, heater/ac unit was either freezing cold, or like an oven....no in between, and then there was the upstairs neighbors, who were running and or stomping around all night long.
The bedding smelled bad, and to top the situation off, I left a piece of computer equipment there by mistake, that had very valuable information on it. I called the main phone number and no answer. I called like 10 times and finally got ahold of someone to inquire about this item.... They claim nothing was left in the room, so.... I guess I have learned from this experience.
This place should be shut down and burned to the ground!!! This dump don't even deserve the effort to give it a star of any kind..... But the rating field is required to be filled in.....
Bottom line, I should have just slept in my truck!!! I hope this information helps all of you out!!
Hey, but they do have free WiFi.....
WARNING: DO NOT GO THERE!!!!. Value Motel in Northeast Hazel Dell - Starcrest is a DUMP! I am NOT a picky person and I can sleep just about anywhere, but this place was a nightmare! We were there no more than 10 minute and demanded a refund and left. There was pubic hair in the bath tub (a lot of it), the carpets were soiled and the room smelled like death. The straw that broke the camel's back wasn't the fact that the bed sheets were DIRTY, but the fact that there was a used prophylactic in the trash can along with fast food wrappers was a deal breaker. This place needs to be shut down! I am quite certain they rent out rooms hourly. We left and went to a REAL motel! It was $55 for a private room ($30 to share a bathroom with a neighbor). If you think about going here, get back on the 5 north and go to the Shilo Inn where the rooms are clean....or sleep in your car!! It only got a 1 star rating because a rating is required.
NASTIEST PLACE ON EARTH.
IF YOU ENJOY TRYING TO IDENTIFY BAD ODORS,SCRATCH FLEA BITES,WATCH METH FREAKS STROLL THE PARKING LOT,BATHE IN MOLDY BATHROOMS,RUIN YOUR CLEAN SOCKS ON PET URINE SMELLING CARPET,TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT PART OF THE BODY SOME MYSTERY FLUID CLUMP CAME OUT OF,PICK NASTY HAIRS OFF OF THE BEDDING,SLEEP ON USED AND NOT WASHED BED SHEETS...THEN THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU! NEVER HAVE I SEEN A MORE ATROCIOUS LODGING PLACE.IT NEEDS TO BE SHUT DOWN, BUT THEN THE ''INSECTS'' WOULD BE HOMELESS.
NO STARS FOR THIS NASTY HOVEL.
