When traveling solo for work I choose an inexpensive motel for a one night stay. The street location is a little sketchy, but walkable to my downtown meeting. There is a mcdonalds two blocks away. The rooms are not accessible from the street like it looks in some pictures they are behind a coded gate. Upon entry, it's old, tiled... More

Ok, not only did the manager enter my room in the middle of the day on premise of checking for towels (I already had some from housekeeping) but I left a pair of headphones in my room and the owner made me send a check for $12.65 for postage to send them back, but the postage was only $5.65..

I've come to the Budget Lodge for years, it's my go-to place to stay in Phoenix. It's always been very clean, comfortable and friendly, with reasonable prices, and a fridge and microwave in every room, with free reliable internet as well. Some rooms have an ironing board and iron as well, it's really very people-friendly. Last time we stayed was... More

I stayed here for a litte stop-over on our road-trip. Experienced a undiscribable smell everywhere exept in my room, room and toilet were clean. Complimentary breakfast was not really a breakfast, juice mixed with water and a kind of uuhm bread. Location was ok

Close to the airport, we could walk to restaurants and stores. The staff was courteous and helpful. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Air conditioning was strong enough, we even got cold with its max power.

We chose to stay here after flying into Phoenix from London late in the day, as we didn't want to drive on too far in the morning. The BLDP does exactly what it professes to do - it offers clean, comfortable rooms with all the facilities you would expect at a good price. The staff were helpful and there is... More

I was going to be in Phoenix for 18 hours and needed a cheap place to sleep for the night. I saw the negative reviews for several Motel 6s and saw this establishment listed with 5 stars. Great value. Cold air conditioning. Using Yelp I found several highly rated eateries in the neighborhood. Will stay again if I am in... More

Very clean rooms and friendly service, and the price was right. Second stay at this hotel and both times it was very pleasant. Dan is a very attentive manager. My place to stay anytime I visit downtown Phoenix.
