“Lives up to its name”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

This is a "budget" motel that delivers excellent facilities for its relatively low price. We stayed a total of seven days here during several stays in October. Room prices are about $70 for two beds, which is quite low in the pricey Flagstaff market. The room was large enough so that two people could move around comfortably and provided plenty of space for luggage. Additionally, the room and the bathroom were absolutely clean. A refrigerator and a microwave as well as Wi-Fi were available as well. Budget Inn is on Flagstaff's Milton Street, probably one of the two busiest streets in town (Route 66 being the other) as it goes right by Northern Arizona University and is a mile away from the Interstate 40 and 17 interchange. So the location is central for activities in Flagstaff. A continuing Flagstaff issue for lodging is whether one can hear the freight trains going through town at night. The trains make their trips day and night, making for uncomfortable sleeping at some other economy motels on Milton Street at which we have stayed. Let me assure you that the Budget Inn has no noise problem with the trains passing by; I slept soundly (and I'm a light sleeper). Finally, a tip of the hat to the very friendly front office staff and the tasty coffee they always have available in the lobby.

Stayed for 2 nights, was clean and comfortable. Reasonable price. Good location - close to restaurants, attractions (Bearizona, Sunset Crater, Wupatki). Manager very helpful and pleasant. Would definitely stay here again. Milton is a very busy street, but in the rear of the motel I couldn't hear the traffic.

Room Tip: stay towards the back, away from Milton which is a very busy street

Very nice, clean, functional rooms. Nothing bad to report. We were traveling from Chicago to LA and looking for reasonable accommodations to provide a good night's sleep and then back on the road. Price was very reasonable as well.

We simply needed a place to stay one night when in Flagstaff and were pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness of the room along with the beds being very comfortable. You are close to downtown and within 15 minutes of Snowbowl. Would most definitely stay again in the future.

Room Tip: The rooms on the second floor were quiet. I would suggest a room in the middle or end of the hotel...

stayed one night while passing through Flagstaff. Excellent value, clean room, easy to find and close enough to the centre of Flagstaff. Would definitely use again in Flagstaff even if staying for longer than one night - it provided everything we needed at a fraction of the cost to a lot of places nearby.
