Place was fantastic all around. We had a dog with us and the hotel has a nice little dog park on the property. They even gave us the room closest to the dog park as well. The room was very nice, updated and spectacularly clean. Didn't use the outside pool but it looked really nice. The desk staff was very... More

This was a very nice hotel. The rooms are large with nice tv's and the air works great. The room was very clean. There were a few stains on the carpet but that was no big deal. The beds are very comfortable and they offer military discounts. The shower worked great and the breakfast was as good as any hotel... More

This motel was great. It was clean and well kept. Loved the framed picture in the room blessing the visitor. Left me with a great feeling. When my daughter forgot her toothbrush the front desk had a name brand toothbrush - not the cheap throwaway ones hotels normally have. Recommend the stay.

It's not the Hilton but it's not priced like the Hilton either. It's clean could use updates. We were in a non smoking room that had several burn holes in the carpet. The pool was nice, clean, heated, a decent size. No towels that I could see. Breakfast was minimal we choose to go to Denny's. The beds were tiny... More

After driving for seven hours until after midnight, and stopping at several other hotel establishment, [which were dirty and reeked of smoke! ] this hotel was a sight for sore, tired eyes. My first thought upon entering the room is that felt just like I was spending the night at my grandma's house. Old style furniture, headboards, curtains, and quilts,... More

We have been staying at Budget Lodging for years. The friendly staff and lovely accommodations never disappoint! The room we stayed in this time had been recently redecorated. It had new flooring and an amazing recliner! The bed was very comfortable and the linens and pillows are so soft! We loved swimming in the pool - sparkling clean water and... More

Just spent two days and nights at this location. I was attending a national Basenji play day with several other members of our organization. Human accommodations were extremely clean and neat. An abundance of linens were available when we arrived and remained that way. Standard microwave and refrigerator were in the room, but an excellent breakfast was provided each day... More

Nice clean rooms, in need of some refreshing or updating, but overall fine for the price. Staff very nice and helpful. Had refrigerator, micro,AC, Pool. Wonderful view over the mountains. Good pizza down and around the hill. A little odd to access once you leave the freeway, go up and around a small wall to get to the front for... More

This is an unassuming, great place to stay. Very clean and affordable with a nice and professional staff. The property is convenient, right off the highway and next to any paramount amenities. The only disappointment was the breakfast; just need a better selection of items, especially for children. If I ever have reason to stay this far out of STL... More

We were just stopping for the night and found this place on Expedia. What a surprise. The hotel and room were immaculate (especially liked that the floors were wood laminate, easy to clean unlike carpet), the grounds were well maintained but really liked the cute little seating areas all over the place. Including a chess table all ready for you... More
