This hotel is a very good value accomodation and easily accessible from the highway. Certainly no frills but clean and safe - we will definitely stay here should we pass this way again - their positive ratings are well earned.

The room was perfect for a good nights sleep on a trip I made to Minnesota from central Texas. It was a good midpoint. I stayed on my trip up on September 9, 2014 and was impressed enough that I stayed on my return trip! The price was great, the owners helpful, the room was clean, spacious and quiet. I... More

We spent the night last night and had two rooms. We stayed in 227 which was nice for the price and had some renovations done to it. Our friends stayed in 225 which needed a little updating. One complaint for both rooms is cheap towels and pillows. Overall we would stay here again, especially for the price.

This little gem was perfect for couple days we stayed. It was close to all restaurants in downtown area & located right on interstate I-35, the owner recommended us (Bobby D's BBQ) which was VERY GOOD! The hotel & room was very clean & we slept fine.

The majority of reviews are spot on. I liked the fact that our room (228) had a desk AND a table so it was great for the two of us to get some work done. The parking lot is gravel, a bit messy in the rain but huge so everyone has a place at their door in this one-story structure.... More

I liked the stay in the hotel, big room with fridge, microwave and excellent Wi-Fi. The TV had HDMI connection, so I could connect it with my computer. The room was clean, coffee in the morning, and a very nice manager, what else can you ask for at this price?

We stayed here at the Budget Host on our way to Iowa. If you need a restaurant, hot tub, swimming pool, exercise room and big breakfast, this isn't your cup of tea. If you want a clean room, easy parking, comfortable bed, microwave, refrigerator, good a/c and quiet place to sleep, this is it for an amazingly low price. Definitely... More

I would normally stay at a mid-tier chain: Comfort Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Red Roof Inn, Hampton Inn, etc. But when I looked at the Emporia hotel ratings on Tripadvisor, the high ratings for this "budget" hotel stood out, so I decided to give it a try. The look of the place was very 1960's-style roadside motel. The price was... More

We do our best to provide service that fits your wallet, we also know its not the Ritz. Thank you for supporting small/locally owned business! see you soon, Nirav Patel General Manager More

I chose this motel based on the reviews I'd read on TripAdvisor. I was not disappointed. Although this motel is older, my room was large, clean, and comfy. Even has a mini-fridge and microwave. No frills, but for the price - it's a great value. Easy access too - right off the highway.
