Clean, cheap, hot water, fridge, wifi and coin laundry on site. Exactly what I would expect for the price and more. The office even called me twice when my laundry was ready to be put in the drier and was done drying.

There is a train track nearby so if you're a particularly light sleeper it may wake you. I slept soundly and awoke well rested.

Average hotel, good price.
Average looking, nothing special, Very white, bland, a cool statue in the middle of the hotel.

Rooms are very standard. And average. Nothing wrong with this hotel though.

We stayed here through the night coming back from a job.
It has a recently remodeled room- nice.
Old hotel, but renovated! Great rooms! Great location! Would stay again!

My minumum expectations for lodging include: clean, quiet, comfortable bed, good plumbing, lots of hot water, upkeep of the property. All of these were met by the Budget Host Inn. Plus, they have Turner Classic Movies on cable, always a treat for me.

And at a room rate under $40/night, you can't beat it.

If there's one negative, it's that the bath towels were a little small. But they were newer, quite fluffy and effective. So a very minor quibble, really. Also, the motel is on the east side of town, and there's not much around by way of eateries. But Emporia is a pretty small town; everything's within about a five-minute drive.

Now you won't be staying at a fancy place--this is basic accommodation--but as it goes, you won't do any better. I would definitely stay here again, and hope to do so soon.

I am currently walking across America as a means of raising money for charity. When I cam through Emporia, I stayed at the Budget Host, and what a great call! Located outside the hustle and bustle, but within reach of everything (even walking), the hotel was a nice respite from the grind of walking all day through the city. The service was excellent, and Nick and the entire staff were friendly and spot-on. I'll be staying here again next time through (preferably with a car).

We decided to stay here after reading the reviews. This is a great place if you are traveling on I-35 and just need a place to stay for the night that is budget friendly. Their price was significantly less than other budget hotels in Emporia.

The rooms were way out of date, almost to the point they were retro and kind of fun (our tub and toilet were baby blue with a really interesting hand-laid tile floor). But the rooms were CLEAN, smelled fresh, and were welcoming after a long day on the road.

Our room also had a mini fridge and microwave and being a motel it was nice to park directly outside your room. Owners were polite. Beds were comfortable, and while we heard the trains the sound was not loud enough to be bothersome. We will be back on our next I-35 trip!

Room Tip: call for price, we got a bit better rate calling in than online.
