Dont stay at budget lodge. The staff treats you like dirt.....the security is invasive coming to your room at all hours..or just entering unannounced. If you pay by the week or for two weeks they will make a reason to throw you out and keep your money. So dont pay in cash or its by-bye money. the worst motel ive... More

Frankly, I didn't even know it was legal to operate a motel for public use that is so filthy and dangerous. I don't know what level you have to reach before condemnation, but this hole has to be straddling it. The experience begins in the lobby where you are greeted by a sign that pledges management will pay $100 for... More

I've recommended people to stay here since 2012 because they treat people accordingly, however I'm inclined to retract any and all referrals due to the following... I've been staying here for about 1 & 1/2 years. I've been through the up and downs with management and everything has been fair. Until recently I haven't been compelled to write a review... More

Carpet is disgusting mattress is Terrible! Not well kept at all. Wifi doesn't reach to extended stay rooms if you can afford it go elsewhere! Don't waste your time. People constantly ask to bum cigarettes from you like harassment I would call it in the parking lot. Must wear shoes at all times in room because otherwise your feet turn... More

Ive been unfortunate enough to stay here the last four nights and each day gets worse. The rooms for the price are obviously not great the only problem is the staff. I was treated like a drug addicted criminal from the minute i walked in. Ive never been treated with that kind of lack of respect. I cant explain how... More

I was in Phoenix for a month to get some hiking done. I narrowed it down to three hotels in this area because the location is close to the hiking trails. The Budget Lodge is the worst hotel Ive ever saw in my life. No human being should ever stay at the Budget Lodge. I will give a brief review... More

This place is a dump. Every person that worked there was rude. I had crack heads knock on my hotel door on multiple occasions late at night, to the point that i was afraid to stay another night. Paid for 5 days in advance. At the end of my stay I asked if this was the way they treated all... More

These reviews are entertaining. This place really is a dump and the people that stay are comparable to the occupy wallstreet squatters. Even the writers of these reviews seem to be riding the caboose on the train of evolution. If you are staying there with your girlfriend she should be deformed or at least 300 pounds to fit in. Otherwise,... More

With the impression I got on the net I was disappointed particular as the hotel was not near the Pheonix Convention centre as was made to believe.

When I saw the place I was not impressed! I entered the lobby and was received by "Sheila" with a friendly smile. I requested a room and got #210. It was clean and appropriate for a short stay and, as I was in an "unofficial" business trip, adequate. It was also surprisingly quiet for a place central and very close... More
