I will say I was leery of staying at a place that looked run down and touted it's "retro decor" (salesperson speak for "hasn't been updated since the 80's) because places like that can be sketchy. The room was, however clean, and had plenty of locks on the door for the worried traveler (from all the random voices and yelling... More

If you aren't fussy this motel works for a one night stop. I booked on line, Sunday night and got the room for $50 plus tax. No one showed up in the office even banging the bell, so I took the motel business card, called and a young man showed up. I told him I booked on line which he... More

The outside of the motel looks to be a little run down. I giggled as the clerk handed me an actual key for the room not a key card. The motel is dated however it is clean and comfortable. The location absolutely wonderful as it is close to both a dollar general and a grocery store. Only minutes from holiday... More

We were traveling between Louisville and St. Louis, not a ton to choose from. Most places wanted an arm and a leg, I came across this one on Trip Advisor. It is a little ways off the highway but worth it. It is outdated, but clean and comfortable. We stayed on the first floor so we heard footsteps some, if... More

I was short on cash and needed a cheap place. This place was a great price and it was clean, fairly quiet and safe. It is definitely not fancy and has a retro 70s look to the decor, but for the price it is a good deal.

While on a back road top-down pony cruzze last week we stopped in the small town of DALE, IN for a night at the Budget Host Stone's Motel on the business route. For the low price we had low expectations but were pleasantly surprised with the large comfortable well equipped room and enjoyed the best nights sleep in a long... More

First of all, I worked with priceline for a wonderfull price. 49.00 for a 1 bed king and 59.00 for 2 queens. Then when I called to make sure they were ajoining. They didn't have those 2 types of...

My wife, 2 kids and I stayed here Aug. 25. We were unsure b/c of all the bad reviews and the place looks dumpy. I had the owner show me a room first and it was satisfactory. It was room 22 and only $49.99. Two beds (not real comfortable) small fridge, microwave, coffee maker, tv and window air. The mexican... More

We stayed at this motel 2 nights. It was okay, but certainly not worth 88$ a night. My main gripe was with check-in - the front desk people seemed to have very little command of the English language, but after a lot of confusion and frustration we did manage to get a key to a room. A No Smoking sign... More
