never in my life have i been in such a scandelous motel. There is a maid who tries to charge you for all the towells because of stains on them. I stayed this last time and intentionally didnt use them, coincidentally i still was forced to purchase all the towells. I dont get what the motive is and nevertheless will...

Dont stay at budget lodge. The staff treats you like dirt.....the security is invasive coming to your room at all hours..or just entering unannounced. If you pay by the week or for two weeks they will make a reason to throw you out and keep your money. So dont pay in cash or its by-bye money. the worst motel ive...

Frankly, I didn't even know it was legal to operate a motel for public use that is so filthy and dangerous. I don't know what level you have to reach before condemnation, but this hole has to be straddling it. The experience begins in the lobby where you are greeted by a sign that pledges management will pay $100 for...

I've recommended people to stay here since 2012 because they treat people accordingly, however I'm inclined to retract any and all referrals due to the following... I've been staying here for about 1 & 1/2 years. I've been through the up and downs with management and everything has been fair. Until recently I haven't been compelled to write a review...

Ive been unfortunate enough to stay here the last four nights and each day gets worse. The rooms for the price are obviously not great the only problem is the staff.

I was in Phoenix for a month to get some hiking done. I narrowed it down to three hotels in this area because the location is close to the hiking trails. The Budget Lodge is the worst hotel Ive ever saw in my life. No human being should ever stay at the Budget Lodge. I will give a brief review...

This place is a dump. Every person that worked there was rude. I had crack heads knock on my hotel door on multiple occasions late at night, to the point that i was afraid to stay another night. Paid for 5 days in advance. At the end of my stay I asked if this was the way they treated all...
