Booked this hotel online thru a travel website. Upon checkin, hotel explained that they charge an additional $50 because of fees they have to pay to the travel website. No where is this fee disclosed online. This made the rate I paid for this room higher than what I could have gotten elsewhere or directly through the hotel. This fee most definitely should have been disclosed and is a shady practice to employ.

Response from inn2lodging, Owner at Budget Lodging
Responded Dec 19, 2019
I’m so sorry you had this experience! Please allow me to explain: booking.com unfortunately does not allow us to disclose the amount of the fee. The only info we are allowed to show on their site is: “Pets allowed on request. Charges may be applicable.” They expect the customer to either call the hotel to ‘make the request’ and inquire about any charges or to add the request in the ‘Special Requests’ field on the reservation. I regret that we didn’t have any advance notice you would be traveling with a dog. I encourage everyone traveling with a pet to contact the hotel directly in advance; this should always lead to the best, most accommodating experience. For future reference, we had and still have a promotion on the dog fee, where if you book directly with our hotel, we reduce the fee to $10 instead of the standard $25, or even $0 depending on certain qualifying criteria. Thank you for your feedback and the opportunity to clarify the matter. I hope we see you again!

I was traveling cross country from Louisville, KY. to southern California and back. On the last stop I chose the Budget Lodging Inn because of its outward appearance and the fact that they accept pets. I was traveling with my small dog. The staff is friendly, the rooms are very clean and pleasant, the grounds are lovely but also pet friendly with grassy areas and walking space. This is my second stop here and both times my experience was delightful. Good value --Good Place!

Nice stay on a night in August! We found this place rather late at night and just wanted somewhere to crash! This place was perfect! Staff were very nice and accommodating! I would definitely stay here again

We stayed here one night on August 10th. We came to town for the Styx concert which was at the Washington Fair. The rooms were very clean, there was Scripture art on the wall and a framed poem. I loved the art and matching pillows. The staff were so friendly. We only stayed the one night, but if I had to come back through St Louis, I"d stay again. Thank you!! Oh and Styx was AMAZING. The fair set out 7,000 chairs, but looking around, I"d say there was 10-11,000 people surrounding them.

Stayed here as we were attending a dog show at Purina Farms. The location is only a short drive from there. I was really impressed with this motel. The grounds were well kept and the landscape very nice. The king room we stayed in was VERY clean and the bed was comfortable. The people at the front desk were very nice and accommodating. They are very dog friendly. Do not hesitate to stay here. Looking forward to staying here next time I am in the area.
