This hotel had the best weekly rates out of all the other hotels in the area. We had a crews who stayed here for an extended period of time. The hotel was close to the job site and the rooms were clean. We would stay here again if working in the area.

I was driving through Alabama on my way to New Orleans and I needed to stop and spend the night. I didn't want to spend a lot of money so I got a travel coupon from the Alabama rest stop. It was very inexpensive and it had decent ratings on tripadvisor so I stayed here. Very happy I did. It...

I came to the Budget Inn on July 8th,2013 for 8 days. The staff was a group that went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. The manager took care of issues right away. My job told me I would be staying another week, so I paid for the week. The next day I found out that had...

This is was a very good hotel. I was staying in Athens, AL for a while and I heard about Budget Inn. My friend Phalgun Vaakpati recommended this hotel to me since he knows this reason.

We were staying in Athens and were looking for a cheap hotel to stay at. We found this hotel just for the value. We heard it was remodeled so we tried it out. Seems like Mr. Patel was very nice to us and offered a discount. We found negative material and complained. Mr. Patel was happy enough to give us...

En route from Indianapolis to New Orleans, online rates for hotels in the Athens area were a bit pricey, so we picked up a lodging book at the Alabama welcome center and saw an ad for "Budget Inn" which indicated they were newly remodeled, with a really low rate, and free wi-fi. Arrived close to 11pm; desk clerk was friendly...

This was a great hotel for the money! Quiet, comfortable king-size bed, excellent shower -- what more could one want? I definitely recommend this hotel and will stay here again when staying in the area.

We arrived in Athens on Nov. 30 and decided to spend the night before going on to Gulf Shores. When my husband went into the motel office, he asked for a room with a king-size bed. She charged the room to our Debit card and gave him the key. When he went to the room it was filthy and smelled...

About a week before my wife and I were to stay in this motel, I called them and talked to an Indian man who told me the price for two adults and "one small house-broken dog" would be $25. We were very pleased and told him we'd be there on December 24th. (We did not make a reservation as he...
