We chose this motel because we drove into Needles around 10:30pm and just needed a place to shower and sleep so we could get on the road around 6am. It had a rating of 7.3 and was only $40 so it sounded good. The sleeping area was very nice for the most part with pretty paint color, crown moulding and... More

We stayed here for one night and it was a great little motel we thought. Cheap and cheerful, clean and no dodgy smell like you do in some motels! We stopped here on our way from LA to Vegas - we wanted to drive along the Route 66. It's the perfect place to start the morning from to begin Route... More

Nice, reasonably priced for this area and the age of the property. We stay here every year during a Route 66 classic car run. The owners are always very nice and sincere about attending to any needs, or requests. Room was clean, quiet, and dark at night. They have recently upgraded the rooms with flat screen TV's, drapes and bedding.... More

Would have been nice to see this strip back when Route 66 was active. This was the least costly option in town and as good as other places we've stayed. They updated the room at some point and unlike other budget motels the towels were thick and plush and the bedding was updated. The room was clean but very small.... More

Many motels on old route 66 in Needles are now defunct but the Budget Inn is a going concern. The room was small but comfortable. The AC drowned out any noise of passing trains and traffic. Short walk to Chinese restaurant. Okay for the price.

The owners are so sweet, they moved their cars so our motorcycles did not have to sit in the sun. THe room was older but had new bedding that was so crisp and modern. The shower was spotless and there is no reason to spend more when for less than 50.00 you get all you need. They did not offer... More

We've stayed here a few time because they are one of the few spots out here that allow pets (dogs are an extra $10/day). It's a short drive to Needles Marina (5 minutes), and it's close to a few stores, fast food spots and gas stations. The rooms are very small, nothing special, but not terrible either. Each room has... More

Stopped here late in the evening. The couple who run the place I assume we're friendly and efficient and checked me in quickly. Good WiFi. Room was average for an old Route 66 motel. I would say its a true Route 66 motel. The view from my room was classic America, big signs and some old buildings nearby. If you... More

This is a very clean little hotel. The staff is friendly and efficient. They use your name . . . however, the air conditioner is so loud that you cannot sleep. It's most frustrating. Unfortunately for us we should have driven further east to Kingman to get a room. It is nice, but unless you can sleep through loud noise,... More
