My husband and I stayed at Budget Inn 8-23/8-25-2013. We have a rather nice experience. Upon our arrival our room was freshly cleaned, managing staff allowed us to check in early, Pool was clean, No bugs in room, Staff very pleasant! I cant wait to stay here again! Definitely fits its name "Budget Inn" Not many places on the beach... More

I honestly can't believe that this hotel charged over $200 when it wasn't worth $2. The lock on the door didn't work, there was no phone, the mini refrigerator was dirty and rusty, the floor was disgusting, the bathroom wasn't clean, and there was feces on the shower curtain and comforter. I was shocked to see how disgusting that room... More

I've been around the world, and I must say this is actually the worst room I've ever stayed in, even worse than rooms I've gotten in Bangkok and the Philippines. It was very cramped, decrepit, and full of mosquitoes (until we turned on the air conditioner and they disappeared, hiding from the cold -- we smashed the stragglers). There was... More

I stayed here on a February weekend, during the off-season when rates are very low along the strip, and many of the money-gouging policies, like minimum 3-nights stay, are not in effect. This motel is very conveniently located to the downtown area, within walking distance. That, unfortunately, is part of the problem- this motel appears to be a spring break... More

This was our first trip to Myrtle Beach and we were very excited. We did not get to view the room in advance as there were people in the room until 3 pm. It costs us $109.00 for the one night even though the sign out front said $48 per night. But this is not about the money. There was... More
