If you don't mind (clean) 70s carpet, this place is a gem! It is the cadillac of old roadside motels. CLEAN, a total of SEVEN light bulbs in the small room, not counting the bathroom! Flat screen tv, micro, fridge, no bugs :) Felt safe and door had deadbolt and strong chain. Only con: parking lot kind of dark and... More

We made an unexpected stop in Bowman and really didn't have much time to think about where to stay as it was late in the evening when we arrived in town. This place was adequate if not very dated. Overall the room was very clean and we had a great night's sleep. It was very inexpensive but probably priced appropriately... More

We wanted to stay in Bowman for a couple of days in May and there really isn't much choice. The Budget Host is conveniently situated next door to Jabbr's restaurant, which is a real plus, particularly as there is no breakfast included in the room price. The owners were very friendly and helpful with regard to local information and we... More

We were in Bowman for just one night, and the Budget Host was the cheapest of all motels I called (first good thing). The motel is older, and the wood paneling reminded me of my childhood. But the room itself (including the bathroom) was perfectly clean, the bed was comfortable, and the huge flatscreen TV was a bonus. They even... More

When I stayed here while visiting my husband I about died walking into the room. Smelled of smoke and mold. I didn't feel comfortable walking around bare footed, although it might have been vaccuumed. The over all impression was dirty and outdated. One plus was they allow pets. Sadly the price that u pay for your pet doesn't go into... More

We were only here for one night but for the money we managed just fine. Wifi worked fine and the room appeared clean. The beds and the pillows comfortable. Just to see the collection of pens in the check-in was rather interesting.

With the high oil activity in the area there are few places for travelers to choose from. This motel is basic, but clean. The owner is in the process of updating the rooms. This is an older motel and it is very evident. Staff was friendly and accomodating. There is a restaurant next door.

How does a place this basic in the middle of nowhere charge $50 plus tax for a single room?! The storm/screen door was broken, the faucets in the sink are backwards, the rug and paneled walls are dingy (at best), and the air-conditioner with its broken controls is so loud the TV has to be top volume to hear it....

I found this old motel very comfortable and amazingly "UNDER PRICED" bed was very clean and comfortable,the heater worked so well,good internet access and also the room was very spacey. If you are not too picky,looking for decent easy and comfortable stay in this area, this is the old traditional Western motel you should try. I am a frequent traveler,change... More
