The room is nice enough and the price is good. The neighbourhood is a bit dodgy (when I told the ambassadors in Downtown Phoenix where I was staying, they insisted I take a cab back to the hotel and I didn't disagree). Basically, this is budget accommodation that doesn't skimp too far. The room was clean apart from some mildew... More

We stayed here for two nights. The owner gave us a great nearby recommendation for a place to eat. He was always pleasant and attentive. The many comments about the cleanliness are well-deserved; everywhere looked like it had been freshly painted and was spotlessly clean. I could walk barefoot on the carpets without any concerns. The breakfast is bare bones,... More

This is a budget hotel, it's exactly what is says on the tin. The rooms were exceptionally clean and tidy. The bathrooms had a shower and no bath but they were perfectly adequate. The staff could not have been more helpful and the breakfast was very good for something that was included.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Budget Lodge Downtown Phoenix and we had a great stay! The outside of the building looks a little outdated, but the rooms have been recently remodeled. It was clean and it was a great price. It was obvious that the owners take pride in this hotel. In addition, I'd recommend this hotel because... More

Not a good neighborhood if traveling alone. Beds are fine. Awoke to the smell of propane from nearby dryers. Shower had hair and shower curtain had hair and mold and the bathmat had a big shoe print. When I spoke with the Manager she said that the maids check the room daily. I think I would have preferred they cleaned... More

I find the place perfect to room around downtown phoenix, az. Arizona center is only 3 blocks away or almost 5 minutes away from the place. It is a budget friendly hotel for those who wants to visit phoenix for few days . The staff was so friendly and helpful. The corner suites has large room and clean with flatscreen... More

Was very surprised with this "Budget" hotel. It was very clean, the room we had was very large and had a very nice, clean bathroom. Our room faces 4th street and was very quiet. I would definitely stay here again when we come to Phx. for any concerts or games downtown. Everything was very close! Nice, nice people!

I stayed at this motel during late Feb 2015 for a convention being held up the street at The Sheraton. My husband and I are from the UK and familiar with booking accommodation and travel online, opting not to stay at the Sheraton due to $$$. This motel is cheap and cheerful - and that's not to say it's a... More

It's a budget-friendly hotel that offers you real value for money. The staff were quite courteous and willing to assist all the way. I was in Phoenix for the first time and they made my stay comfortable and memorable.
