“The worst place I've ever stayed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2008

The ad said " 60 newly remodeled rooms". This was the worst place I've ever stayed in my life. We checked in late on a prepaid
reservation during the Masters Golf Tournament. Had a reservation for Sun. & Mon. nite. We were on the 2nd floor of the lst bldg.
The room was filthy!. Sink was rusted around fixtures and drain.
Bath tub was so stained and dirty & rusted I was afraid to touch anything. The box springs were stained with what looked like blood. I was afraid to check the mattress. There were 2 little bars of soap, no shampoo and limited towels & wash cloths. This place cost us
$339.00 for 2 nites.
We left after 1 night. Didn't even bother to check out.
Tried to contact Budget Inn Corporate headquarters when I got
home. Have been unable to find a headquarters.

Stayed April 2008

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2008

The ABI is in Olde Town. It is on "the other side of the tracks". It is three or four blocks from the jail. It is right off the highway. I would NEVER stay here with my wife or children. I would NEVER let my mother or sisters stay here. I would NEVER stay at this property except for the Masters. The drive from the ABI to Augusta National took all of 10 minutes, and was easy and safe. The hotel provided security guards in the parking lot during Masters week to keep out the local riff-raff and the ladies who surely frequent the property during the 51 other weeks of the year. ABI was full of golf fans from all over the world during my stay and we all pretty much had our doors open, lounging in the parking lot, drinking beers and exchanging stories. It was more like a college dorm or frat house than hotel.

Be warned, that the rooms are old. The beds are filthy (under clean sheets). The rooms offer very little in the way of security, but again during Masters week the property hired a security guard to watch out for locals overnight.

In summation, the ABI is a dump, but a great rate during Masters week. The ONE thing I would recommend to anyone staying here for Masters week or any week for that matter is to get a room in the middle of the property, not at the end room 118-120/218-220. There is a separate opening to the gate in the back where some locals hovered- easy in/out. If the ABI would close that off, it would probably be a good idea.

  • Liked — Proximity to Augusta National and price.
  • Disliked — Filth and safety concerns.
