This room was the most disgusting thing I've ever laid my eyes on. We paid $150 to set our bags in while we attended a wedding. We tried getting our money back, if not all at least a break. The lady at the front desk was rude and said there wasn't anything she could do about it. We ended up... More

The owners are wonderful people, very polite and accommodating. The room was quite small, but we just needed it for sleeping between our active days! It had a microwave and refrigerator, which were BIG plusses. It was very clean and quiet while we were there.

We were asked upon exiting our vechicle if we wanted some Jello shots by a group of 20 something men that were sitting in chairs outside their room and appeared very drunk. When entering our room we noticed a terrible smell of what can be called a porta potty and found the refrigerator open and not working. The noise from... More

I spend alot of time on the road and usually look for inexpensive motels, so this isn't the first Budget Host Inn I've stayed at, despite the last being less than positive experience. The exterior of the property seemed well kept so thought I'd give it a try. The room was clean and Tom at the desk was helpful my... More

We paid $98.00 for the worst room we ever stayed in. It must not have been used forever--musty sheets; stale smelling and, when I opened up the drawer in the nightstand between the beds, there was a giant dried up spider in it! Gross!! The woman at the front desk was very unfriendly. I left them a note about my... More

It was good for what we needed it for. Sleep. N they have brand new beds in the whole place. N the breakfast was really good variety for a small place. It was very convient that it was right off of the freeway, so we could just get up in the am n be right on the road again.

I rented a room for some friends visiting, they wanted to go cheap, and I set up a night at the budget Host Hotel in Detroit Lakes. The price was good about $70.00 for the night. The man at the desk was nice enough but the woman was very rude. The room looked as if it has only been straighten... More

My daughter lives in Detroit Lakes and she recommended staying at the Budget Host Inn. She mentions how it is operated by a very nice family who care about offering a quality stay at an economy price. I was impressed with their customer service when they changed my room to stay in one with a bathtub. The bed was very... More

We travel quite a bit and have stayed at hundreds of hotels and motels. This one was the worst motel at which we have ever stayed. Let me begin with two positives: clean and man at desk was very pleasant. However the negatives have a little longer list: no hot water (lukewarm), HARD bed, HARD pillow, unfriendly lady at desk,...
