Was quoted one price coming into town but then when i got there it was higher. Second doorkey didnt work. Rented from them because they supposedly had a reduced rate for people having medical procedures from out of town. Rate wasnt lowered, and even though i explained to her that i was having surgery the following morning i was given... More

I booked my room through priceline at 5am and when I went to check in at 7pm, there was no record of my room. Sarah, the night clerk, contacted priceline in order to figure out the issue (it was priceline's fault). Besides a long check-in process it was about what I expected for the price. The room was dated but... More

we arrived to hair on the sheets and pubes on the toilet seat and toilet paper on the bathroom floor and hair in the shower. The carpet had not been vacuumed. the room smelled intensely of a really bad air freshener. The room looked out to an alley of a gun and pawn shop with people congregating. The insulation is...

My husband and I and my parents rented rooms for two nights. When we made the reservation we were quoted $82 so we agreed to stay at the hotel. We requested and did not receive a confirmation. Upon arrival we were told the room was $99. We arrived late in day but room was guaranteed. The desk person was not... More

It is called "Budget Hotel" for a good reason. The price is not bad but the rooms are nothing to brag about. It is a place to stay if you can't get any other rooms due to the football crowds during the football season. They have the basics, small refrigerator and small micro wave. Lighting is very poor due to... More

The bed was very comfortable and the staff was really nice. They had yummy fresh chocolate chip cookies waiting for us when we checked in. The hotel is old and outdated, but clean enough and served the purpose.

We recently stayed at the Budget Host hotel in Columbia, Missouri over a University of Missouri football weekend. Football weekends are very busy in Columbia and finding a hotel room can be a challenge. The prices also seem to double or more for the same room. This is a fairly large hotel with three two-floor buildings with rooms. Our room... More

There are no words to describe this hotel except -dirty!! There was a roach in our bathroom and animal hair on our sheets. The carpet was crusty and disgusting. It was the last room that I could get for parents weekend. We decided sleeping in the back of our SUV would be better. Luckily, a cancellation came up another hotel.... More

This is by far the worst hotel room I have rented in recent memory. Remember and avoid room number 103. Curtains have holes and room in general needs major renovation. Cleanliness is mediocre. The door faces the outdoors and there is a huge opening at the bottom of the door (due to sunken floor, etc.). I complained to front desk... More
