I was traveling alone with my 3 dogs across the country. This hotel was a great find and easy on the budget. They have pet rooms and non pet rooms. They offer a lot of options for breakfast. Safe area to walk my dogs around even late at night and early morning. I had a great stay!

Great staff! Stayed here while waiting for vehicle to be repaired due to accident. Was not excited about the choices in town, but was very surprised by everyone and everything.Definitely the best small hotel I've been in at any price. Highly recommend! Better staff, better room, better price then the Downtown Chicago Marriott

Great hotel. Staff was excellent. Even went out of their way to find us a wine bottle opener. Kept pool open late for everyone who came in late from their day activities. Beds were comfortable. Rooms were clean. Quiet. Will stay again. Only 20 minutes to Six Flags, 1 hour to Gateway Arch.

We stayed at Budget Lodging the first weekend in July. It was our second stay there. Both times the rooms were clean and well-kept and a little larger than usual. Desk clerks were very nice and helpful. The outside pool is large and very nice. The usual free continental breakfast. Rates are very reasonable. They have free popcorn every night... More

Great place to stay, totally dog friendly. Several rooms have been remodeled and are beautifully done. Last year i stayed on the fro t side and although not remodeled these rooms were very nice as well. All the amenities of the fancy chains with the friendliest staff! Will stay here whenever I am in the area.

Was a very nice outside entrance motel with pool and breakfast. Bathroom area/sink was pretty cramped, but clean. Standard cold breakfast, but biscuits and gravy were nice touch. Outdoor pool was nice along with the front desk. Subway is close, but food at Gibbys was good sitdown. Would stop here again if it was on our way.

Great place to stay. Clean Rooms, welcoming staff. It is close to attractions in the area as well. Most important, we slept very well. Guests were courteous and quiet. I would hugely recommend this hotel if you are traveling this way.

The staff was wonderful and the location was great! The room was really comfortable but the beds were a little small. The room was cute and had quilts on the beds. Pool was fun! Breakfast was nothing spectacular but not bad. We will make sure to come back! It was a very clean hotel and I always appreciate that!
