I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of this well maintained motel. I stayed after looking on line to learn from everyone else that this place is worth the stay. I stayed at a motel 6 the night prior while on a road trip, and the quality between the two was a night/day difference for sure. My room was clean,... More

This is an excellent deal for a low budget motel. As one would expect, it isn't much to look at and certainly not luxurious, but our room was pristinely clean, well maintained, and had recently upgraded, comfortable mattresses. We also had a smoking room that somehow did not smell like stale smoke. The staff was also very friendly. It just... More

We stayed here on our road-trip as it was on our route late at night and offered a great price. Our check-in experience was not good, it was very hard to communicate with the lady at front-desk and there was a heavy smell. It looks like it is a family-owned hotel. Rooms were somewhat clean from outside but it desperately... More

We stayed here a year ago and the outside still looks as run down as before. But the rooms are clean and everything works. DQ adjacent and the BBQ across the street now serves breakfast, though the hotel has cereal. For $50, it's a good little hotel.

Price was wonderful but the old saying you get what you pay for fits this. Room was small, mostly clean, needs updated desperately, beds were comfortable but I didn't get much sleep because of noise. I think someone was living a few rooms down and there were kids slamming car doors most of the night. Dairy Queen is next door... More

I stayed here in September, 2014. My room was plenty spacious and very comfortable. Clean room, bathroom, clean sheets, comfortable bed and pillows, good quality towels, and everything in my room worked perfectly: the ac, tv & remote and the lighting. Easy access. Couldn't ask for more. Would stay again and would recommend to my family and friends.

We had reservations down the street and were not happy with the room there. I had noticed this tidy little place on our way into town so we stopped to see if they had any available rooms. We were shown a double. It was dated. It could use some minor repairs. But all-in-all, it was clean, well-maintained and quiet with... More

I was driving west and didn't plan to stop for the night, but the weather had other ideas as the snow began to accumulate on I-70. I took the Greenup exit to see what I might find for an impromptu overnight stay. I usually research my hotel choices in advance, but this situation was different. The Budget Host Greenup is...
