Americas Best Value Inn
Business of the Month
Hasu and Rekha Patel moved to Ozona, Texas, and purchased the Americas Best Value Inn in August of 2006. The couple, formerly from Orange County, used to live in Anaheim, California. Hasu has worked as an Electronic Technician with Boeing Aerospace Company at their Long Beach, CA, plant working on commercial and military aircrafts such as C-17 Airlifter, MD-80, MD-11, 717 and others. As a 20 year aerospace veteran, he then moved to Ozona. “My brother, J C Patel, lived in Ozona and liked the community, and his friend, J R Bhakta of the Best Western Ozona Inn, told us about the motel, which we then purchased and went into business. We enjoy Ozona and the community. I also completed the Community Leadership Program in 2007, introduced by Ozona Chamber of Commerce. Such a good community,” says Hasu Patel.
The Americas Best Value Inn, located at 820 11th Street received a prestigious “500 Club” award from Vantage Hospitality Group in the years 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015, which were awarded at the annual International Conference & Trade Show at Las Vegas, Nevada.
The “500 Club” award is presented each year to Americas Best Value Inns that achieve a perfect score in their quality assurance inspection. This includes receiving excellent quality rating in housekeeping, maintenance, appearance, life safety issues, lobby and marketing. Promoting and encompassing the brand’s reputation of providing guests with friendly, personalized service and exceptional quality, outstanding value is also taken into consideration.
According to Hasu, “We had a excellent year in 2019. Last year our occupancy was down considerably, but this year it is back up positively. We hope we might back on track. Most of our guests are interstate travelers, mostly from Texas, Arizona, California and Florida. We have had some local business, too, such as construction, oil field and auto garage workers.
“We have people staying with us attending local school events or people here visiting their families. We are proud of the property and our recent awards. We invite local people to stop by and let us give them a tour. We completely remodeled the property in 2008,” continued Hasu.
“Americas Best Value Inn has 24 rooms, almost all non-smoking, and some are pet friendly. We provide free WI-FI service. We also have laundry facilities for guests, and free Continental breakfast, microwaves, refrigerators and dryers in all rooms.”
The Chamber of Commerce would like to congratulate Americas Best Value Inn on their recent awards. We recognize the business as being an added asset to the community and their efforts to provide a quality service to their customers.
