“Sorry, but the smell just ruined it.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2011

Check-in was pleasant and fast. After getting the key and opening the door to the entrance to the area we were staying, there was an immediate foul odor looming in the air. It was like a moldy, wet dog odor. When we got to the door of the room and opened it, another equally unpleasant odor hit us. It was another moldy, wet dog smell mixed with stale cigarette smoke, even though it was a non-smoking room. Between the foul odor and the uncomfortable pillows and blankets, there was no getting to sleep. If the smell wasn't so bad, we might have been able to overlook the bedding problems.

Reasonably priced! Very friendly and accomodating staff, plenty of towels and CLEAN! We enjoyed a 2 evening stay in a King jacuzzi room, had a very nice meal in their restaurant and will definitely stay here again when visiting NJ and family!

Great value. Room was clean and comfortable. The food in the attached restaurant was really good. The staff was friendly and attentive. The owner is everywhere making sure everything is ok. The only way this hotel can improve is to use refresh bedding and thicker bath towels. I would not hesitate to go back again or to recommend this hotel to other travelers.

Good value for what yo pay.It can be actually a nice place if they will renovate, change carpetting/so filthy! If you do not have asthma you will get it!
Cannot open windows, no air to breeze, this really kills the mood and makes it hard to survive the night.
If they will improve couple of things it can be a nice place, not now.Location is close to highway and restaurant ok, ocasionally good.They should have more options also is bothersome that you have to buy a whole meal, instead of option to choose.
1.They should let windows crack.
2.Change carpets
3.Add some pictures, etc, place looks like nursing home/no color.Even TJMaxx will do the trick!
4.Add eliptical machine or get a better treadmill.
5.Add some flowers in hallway
6.Let people choose a side dish/soup etc do not force them to get full lunch/dinner bufett!!!

The hotel staff on arrival seemed busy and preoccupied. The room was old and dirty. There were beer bottle caps under the bed from the previous guests. The blankets all had holes in them. The room smelled of mildew and the hallway in the non-smoking wing of cigarettes and car exhaust. When i requested extra blankets and pillows I was told they had none. I seriously question AAA rating of this hotel.

Radisson12, General Manager at Budget Inn & Suites, responded to this review, March 1, 2011
Whenever we do not meet our guests’ standards, it is very disappointing, simply because this is not the norm for our hotel. All associates at the Budget Inn and Suites strive to exceed expectations with superior service. We treat our guests’ as family.

We value ALL guest feedback, both positive and negative, and I share this information with our owner and members of the management team. This allows us to continue to improve upon, and maintain proudly, our AAA Three Diamond rating, which we all have worked so hard to obtain.
