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

This place is kind of a dump. It looks like the property was convert from horse stables, or maybe industrial warehouse storage. The ceilings had a weird-ish 1950s asbestos looking tile, and the wall had what looked like....well let's just say, 'organic material' splat over the crooked and broken headboard. the only thing this place has going for it is...
