“Terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2008

We needed a place to stay overnight. We also needed to save money too. So, we went to the Budget. Looking at the motel from the outside you could tell something wasn't right. We spoke with the front desk people who seemed pretty spacey. We asked to see the room before giving any money which was a good thing because the room was small, dark and very dirty. There were cigarette burn holes in the carpets and bedding. There was crusty white stuff on the linen and blankets. We bumped into a few ladies in waitng and there was someone crouched in staircase. Very creepy. We took off fast and went elsewhere. Please whatever you do, dish out a little extra coin and find something else. Don't waste your time even thinking about this motel.

We were going to stay there in 2005. We paid, got in the room and it was the most disgusting thing I've ever seen. First it was hot, so I went to turn on the AC, hmm, didn't work. Noticed a window unit, didn't work either....went to see if it was plugged in and there was no plug, just wires sticking out.. Go to turn the light on (lamp), doesn't work, again, no plug, just wires. Go to turn on the bedside lamps that are mounted to the wall, no light bulbs. There is a refrigerator in the room, open it, it's warm with a half open 40oz of beer. Decide to look at the plug.... again, just wires.

Go to the bathroom, no shower curtain. The cupboard doors are falling off the hinges. The carpet is stained, and looked like dried blood.

I do not think that the second poster stayed in the same motel as myself or the first poster. This place was NASTY and should be shut down.

PS: if I happen to find the pictures I took, I will post them on here.

Stayed September 2005

I would rate the Budget Inn Motel (----) much LOWER, but there is no lower rating! We were only looking for a bed to sleep in on our long road trip.. we were exhausted. We were not expecting much, but got much less than we were expecting!

The motel was a dirty place, the people at the reception desk were obviously under the influence of some substances, they had dirty rooms that were falling apart (ceiling was broken and falling down in places, the carpets were stained and dirty), the smoke detector kept beeping all night, there were empty beer bottles in the cupboard in the bathroom, the toilet did not work, there was an unsafe window air conditioner with frayed/bare wires-a definite fire hazard, there were noisy people next door "enjoying themselves" loudly all night long, there were noisy people running up and down the hallways at 3am, our room was rented out to 2 different sets of people in one night (someone WALKED IN ON US at 4am because they were given the keys to our room!), we got unwanted phone calls from the front desk at 4am telling us to go downstairs immediately to prove that we had paid for the night- they had lost our records from when we checked in.

This was definitely not a COMFORTABLE or SAFE place to be. We left at 4:30am and went to a reputable hotel.

Never again will we settle for "just a bed to sleep in"!

Don't make the same mistake we did!
