This place is a step back in time in all accounts. Customer service, Cleanliness, most comfortable rooms. On top of all this you actually get a key to your room. You really need to visit to understand the last statement. Thank you for being there. Your competition needs to take lessons from you in all accounts. I will be back!... More

When I see the term "budget" I immediately think, dirty, smelly, and uncomfortable. Budget Lodging defied those terms! It came highly recommended by past customers, so I gave it a try. Much to my delightful surprise, it exceeded all of my expectations. Both, clean and comfortable, the quaint setting was the perfect place for my trip. Friendly courteous service and... More

What a place! Clean, comfortable beds, great layout, feel safe, extremely friendly and amiable staff, didn't mind a bit when I asked for a specific room, no smelly carpets, felt like home! Coffee, tea and hot chocolate all night, and a pc to use in the lobby if required! Would have stayed longer if I could have. And Giddys restaurant... More

We stayed at the Budget Lodging because of the reviews we read but still did not have very high expectations. Were we ever surprised! This was one of the most comfortable hotels I have ever stayed in. To put this in perspective, I have flown over 1.5 million miles on Delta so I have stayed in a lot of hotels.... More

After an awful car wreck we came to this lodge, with no money to our names and no car the owner of the lodge let us stay the night and pay the next day. We are so thankful to him. The stay was wonderful. The rooms where spotless and the beds where soft and clean. The price of this place... More

we took a weekend trip that included Meramac Caverns and Zip lining. Budget Lodging was very clean. Staff very friendly and the beds super comfortable. The included breakfast was basic, but had a few more items than some budget motels, and was good. I would stay there again if in the area.

For the money you pay this has to be one of the best value motels we have stayed at. The room we had was very nice and spacious and we were fortunate enough to have time to sit by the pool when we arrived. The free popcorn is very nice as well. The staff are great and very helpfull. We... More

A family locally owned hotel? It's like finding a leprechaun riding a unicorn! After experiencing a nearby hotel that gave our confirmed room to someone else (the last avail room nonetheless), Tom at Budget Lodging had 2 rooms left and said he'd hold it for us... Just on our word alone! What? No credit card? No blood sample or first... More

Great staff, clean and comfortable at a reasonable price. We stayed here on our return trip as well. Hotel Managers--take notice--this is how it should be done!!! We made several calls to hotels in this area and it was clear that this staff was the best trained in customer service. Easy choice.
