If I could give this less stars, I would. The owner is highly unpleasant and unprofessional. I cannot imagine a worse person to deal with. He's rude, snappy, and until I brought my boyfriend inside he refused to work with me. Rooms cost way too much for what you get. The parking lot is hard to get into. The price... More

My Dad was life-flighted into Mountain View unexpectedly. I booked a room at another hotel for the only two nights available and when I had to check out, the Budget Motel ( a place I'd usually avoid based on the name alone) had the only room available. When I arrived, I was pleasantly surprised by a well-maintained retro-motel with flowers... More

Have stayed here 3 times, first when we found it, then my husband stayed for 2 weeks while I was having surgery at Stanford Hospital (which is a straight shot 10 minutes up the road), and again when we went up for a post-op visit to the clinic a couple of months later. It was clearly one of the original... More

The folks that manage this Motel are great. They go out of their way to make you feel at home. The place is always clean and very neatly keep.

The purpose of this review is to help newly costumers to make their decision before spending their business trip or holidays. I have stayed more than 20 nights at this hotel. As it sign says the price value is very good compare to other surrounding hotels. Very discrete location, everything is nearby : Castro (mountain view downtown) is about 200... More

Not only is it perfectly located on El Camino near a Peet's Coffee, the Budget Motel is a an immaculate, inexpensive, perfectly adequate place to stay while in the Bay Area. Bob is friendly, kind and accommodating, a sweet guy that truly cares for his sweet motel and his guests. It's a step back in time, 1940's style motel, Spanish... More

A spontaneous trip to Mountain View CA left me looking for an inexpensive place to avoid a long drive home. I tried a chain motel but found it 'pricey' for the 8 - 10 hours of a visit. I stopped next door and saved nearly a third the cash and was pleasantly surprised by the beautifully kept courtyard and the... More

I travel to Mountain View 2-3 days a week and "always" stay at Budget Motel. Bob and Bella are the kindest! I can always count on them to have a super clean and quite room! This is the best place and if you come and stay you'll get hooked as I did! They truly go the extra mile in making... More

I have tried almost all of the hotels on El Camino since I spend three nights a week here in hotels. This is the place I stay exclusively now. Best rates in town, very friendly staff, clean rooms, ample space, fast and free Internet, ample parking, and other guests are also professionals so don't have any loitering, noise, or safety...
