This was by far the most terrible accommodation experience we've had in North America. The reason we chose this place was because it was CLOSE TO THE AIRPORT and we were only spending a few hours in the place. We booked through booking.com and got the cheapest room at a total of $101. I was sure that CONS: -The room... More

My stay at the Budget motel was a mixed experience. The room was not bad and it had some nice ammeneties such as a nice clean comfortable bed, large color television, small refrigirator and a microwave. The room was rather cold and I could not get the thermostat to work. I must also add that the staff at the front... More

Did not expect much after reading all the reviews that were posted. Was a very basic motel which looks very run down and eerie from outside. However the room was spacious and well maintained and had free parking. No breakfast provided, but we had a microwave and refrigerator in the room.

I have traveled extensively throughout the world; and almost always choose the cheapest options available. It was this practice that landed me at Budget Motel in San Bruno, CA. I rented two rooms (a single for myself and a double for my crew). It was by far the absolute worst lodging experience of my entire life. The crew's room did... More
