I have stayed at the Budget Host Inn on numerous occasions. It is clean, has a refrigerator and microwave, complimentary coffee in the morning and a friendly, helpful owner. The price is certainly right. I would recommend the Budget Host to friends.

Booked a room here for an overnight stay so I could make medical appt the next day. This was the lowest priced motel in town. The owners were very nice, the room was very clean.... shows some wear as was expected for this type of older motel. My complaints are the room smelled of disinfectant. The smell was overpowering and... More

I might be generous with the rating, but at that price we don't expect the Ritz. We had a last minute change of plans and as it was a holiday weekend and other places were booked, we ended up here. Check-in was quick and the owner friendly. The room is typical of a 50's era motel. Yes, the room was... More

Go south 300 feet to the Comfort Inn and spend the extra $20 on a room that doesn't smell like carpet fresh. Just because they use a huge amount of carpet fresh does not make the room clean! Tiles busted in the bath room, crappy tiles in the ceiling just waiting to fall out, nasty shower with a rotten bathroom... More

We were looking for a place just to sleep and this fit the bill...not the fanciest or newest but it was clean and enough room for the 3 of us. Bathroom was clean and it had a good size fridge. There's even a small breakfast in the lobby.

So of course I was worried about staying at a place that is so inexpensive. But I was wrong, and I will stay here every time I go to see my relatives. The rooms are spotless, and the staff are SO friendly and accomodating. Three weeks after my trip I am still thinking of how pleasant it was to stay... More

We stayed here over the 4th of July weekend 2014. My sister booked a room for her family and one for mine. After she told me I looked at the reviews and was very worried as the reviews stated that it was very run down and many people stated the rooms smelled terrible. I was concerned as I can't handle...

I enjoy staying in hotels from the Bellagio to a Mom and Pop cabin in the woods. Also I work front desk at a hotel so I have seen quite a few different approaches to managing lodging. I am impressed with this little motel. After a 12 hour drive, I decided I wanted the cheapest room I could find that... More

This is the first time reviews on Trip Advisor have been way off from the reality of the hotel I stayed at. This place is so far beyond "deferred maintenance" that it's a teeny-tiny dot in the rear view mirror. Quite honestly, if there were a TV show such as "Motel Impossible", I'd nominate it in a heartbeat. Walk in... More

I was up north for a day off and need a place to stay. Found the staff very friendly and accommodating. The bed was very comfortable and I slept like I was in my own bed. I will be staying again in the future.
