This is the worst hotel I have ever been too. There were roaches in my bed and all over the room. It is not worth it, the customer service is terrible. I went to talk to the front desk to solve the situation. The lady gave me the run around and refused to give any help. I came back the... More

I stay there for 3 days. You have to talk through a window because they lock the front entrance at a certain hour. They had regular channels but not clear. Pool wasnt open nor did they now when. Every Tom Dick and Hary came in from the side door. I was woken by next door having sex. Upstairs neighbors were... More

We will never stay at a Budget in, or any hotel that is rated 2 Stars, just because of the experience we had with the Budget Inn on Mcdowell Rd. Phoenix. Cleanliness, Staff, Bugs, much more. Didn't even stay after our experience the first night with the hotel itself and the staff. The pictures on the website and online are... More

The staff was very nice and efficient. Check in/out was a breeze. The pool was clean. The spa wasn't hot, but it was nice. The room was clean. I would recommend this facility to any who want a clean, nice, safe place and not break the bank.

This place is horrible! There is prostitution and drug trafficking, the rooms are full of questionable stains on the carpet, walls, furniture and everywhere. There is cigarette burns on everything, the doors look like police have busted in with force and the owner has not bothered to fix the locks! I felt disgusted and itchy and asked for a refund...

I stayed at the Budget Inn overnight and I suppose I can sum it up by saying it was OK. I liked how big it was, I liked the bed except the part where I found popcorn under the blanket. The room was warm and had a fridge and microwave as well as cable and free wifi which is nice.... More

Seems I stayed in a different motel than the rest of the reviews. Everyone we come in contact with at the motel was very helpful. Rooms were clean. Furniture in good condition, everything worked. Excellent stay for the $$. Close to PIR. Definetly a "two thumbs up". Motel in a safe area of town. Can't say enough good stuff about... More
