“screen to a crack pipe in our room”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2011

after we checked in, our 1 year old son was walking around as i surveyed the room. i found the screen to (what i assumed to be) a crack pipe in the corner or the motel. i was terrified. i scooped him up and didn't let his feet touch the filthy floor again. when my husband went to get a refund they told him they would still charge him $15 because of some internet booking fee ( i work for a hotel and do the internet booking management, it doesnt work that way) but whatever, i just wanted us and our kids OUT OF THERE. could you imagine...a baby picking that up. im still shaken by it. absolutely disgusting. the room was incredibly small and un kept aside from the crack pipe accessories.

Room Tip: if you smoke crack, any room is fine.

We liked this place. If you're looking for a cheap place to stay, the Budget Inn is a good choice. We felt safe, the rooms were clean enough, it was quiet at night, and the guy at the front desk gave us directions to a great Indian restaurant.

  • Liked — cheap price and relative cleanliness and safe feeling
  • Disliked — it's not right downtown, had to drive to food

The review title says it all "Nothing Else Available" and I won't stay there again. The room was clean enough and they did make our beds the next day but hot water was not hot. The TV remote had problems and the room was just not nice Also they tried to charge more for internet booking and extra $10. We said at check in we may stay another night and were told the rate would be the regular rate. We {--} and the 2 night were reduced So I guess that is a good thing that they did lower the rate to the regular rate. All and all it was a place to sleep but considering the other inns we stayed on our trip North This was a DUMP and no budget either.

Don't consider this a motel alternative unless you've run out of all other possibilities. Every room smells bad - and we booked 6 of them. No coffee, not even in the office. Nothing is very near this place either. Some rooms had stains on the ceiling. Others had roaches. Live-in units on the side have you questioning the safety of your car.
