“When price is what matters to you”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Budget Inn does not pretend to be Wyndham. My crew stayed two nights and found the rooms to be simple, but clean and serviceable. The beds were quite comfortable and we did not hear any street or other nuisance noises at night.

As other reviews indicate, the motel is old and has not been updated. But then, we would never have gotten rooms at that price if it had been. You get a lot of room for very little money. The owner's English is not perfect, but he was perfectly helpful with restaurant suggestions and directions to other things.

It might be worth your while to actually check the room before committing. The rooms there are not all the same. Some rooms we had were nearly half again as large as others, all at the same price.

Room Tip: Rooms in the SE corner were larger than rooms ni the SW corner.

The room was clean. Located right off I 10. The hotel is very dated. New towels needed. Had to move microwave every time to use it. No coffee pot in room but could get coffee next door at the Shell station. Served the purpose for 1 night stay.

Excellent value, the room was clean, flat screen tv's, they gave us bottled water for the coffee maker, plenty of room and very quiet. Nice staff. We only stayed one night and did not have a reservation, they price matched as well.

If you are looking for a bed to sleep on without frills keep looking. Bed was HARD, like sleeping I'm the floor. Old place in need off major upgrades. Overall clean enough but spend an extra 20 and stay somewhere else.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

The major brand hotels that we checked were booked as we decided to stop for the night in Fort Stockton. Reviews that we read were mixed. However, we were greeted by a pleasant young man (son of the owner?) The rooms were clean, linen was clean, mattresses appeared new with no signs of bed bugs, nice flat screen TV with either expanded cable or direct TV, and a/c in good working order. The owners were in the process of changing out "room keys" for electronic card swipe access. And it appeared the owners were repairing and updating the rooms. Yes, it is a motel, but it was a nice overnight stop on a road trip for me & my UT Austin bound son. I would rate this "excellent" for an overnight stop in Fort Stockton, although Marriott/Hilton are my usual hotel choices.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

Having come from a couple of nights in Motel 6's, we picked this one because we did not have to climb stairs. When we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised--the rooms were bigger, the bathrooms were recently remodeled, with upgraded fixtures, the TV was a newer flat screen, the bed was quite comfortable, and the room was clean.

Best of all was the welcome we received from this family run establishment.

Super gross. Guy was rude, hung up on me after I called to verify if he had two rooms. Then the price magically jumped $10. Basic room, yellow dried matter on the bed sheets, slept in my clothes. Perfect room if you are a band rolling in at 2:30am looking for 3 hours of sleep. Thank the lord above I didn't have a black light on me. Oh, added bonus of stained towels :)
