This motel was very clean. Yet, the neighborhood appears rather shady. It was quiet to sleep, and the bed was comfortable. The motel was in close proximity of Lodi wineries and restaurants. I wouldn't mind staying on another occasion, and would tell others that it will be a decent place for one or two nights. There is no pool.

I was surprised how nice the room was. The outside of the motel is fine, but the interior of the room is much better than I expected. Very comfortable and large bed. Good clean carpeting. Nice lighting. Decent-sized refrigerator. Very little interaction with staff besides checking in and out, but they seemed like nice folks, helpful and friendly. I'd definitely... More

I am not used to staying at Budget Motels, but I guess as they go, this one is OK. It did seem reasonably clean, but I wasn't as impressed as a recent reviewer. The sink, tub, and walls seemed new/newly painted and the carpet was clean. The kind of tile in the bathroom area is a kind that to me... More

I was so impressed with how clean this hotel was that I made sure to leave the cleaning woman a tip, for the first time ever in my life I got a smoking room that actually didn't smell of urine from the nicotine on the decor and walls! It was awesome only thing I can say is pack some more... More

Oh Tripadvisor, you have failed me. This is the first time that I feel cheated by the reviews. How in the world could anyone have actually stayed at this place and given it higher than a 3 out of 5. This was Valentine's Day weekend and I was so embarrassed to take my sweetheart to this motel. Don't get me... More

Went for a crab feed at a winery and needed somewhere inexpensive to stay the night, before driving home. Made reservation at the Budget Inn of Lodi. It was like going back to the 50's and 60's. The outside looks like the motels that existed in the 50's. The inside have recently been remodeled to the 1990's. It was clean,... More

Spring 2015, I stayed for 6 months on work assignment. The owners, Sue and Sam treated me like family, I was in a larger room with full kitchen. The rooms are constantly being updated, beds are high quality and sooo comfortable. Close to the wineries. The best attribute, they are careful about clientelle, it was verrrryyyy quiet there.

I will admit the price is cheaper than the competition, and our room was simple, quiet, and acceptably clean. The neighborhood of the hotel is not the greatest. There is nothing special about the room. I really don't understand the other rave reviews. It is an acceptable average room for a decent price.
