I stayed at the White Sands Motel for two nights @ $50 per night. The White Sands Motel is an example of an exemplary budget motel.
Here's what I loved about the White Sands Motel, none of which you can take for granted in a budget motel:
Free wifi (secured and fast for my needs)
Deadbolt + locking door knob
Shower curtain with a crisp, bright design
Ample-sized desk for laptop or meal (only one person, tho)
Extra thoughtful touch: A power strip on top of the desk so no need to crawl around floor or behind clunky furniture for a free outlet
Extremely comfortable bed (although bed comfort is such a personal thing, it's difficult to standardize the concept)
Attractive building exteriors and landscaping
Burly ice maker
The breakfast is OK, nothing special, but the value of the place isn't in the breakfast, it's in all the details above. In fact, most "free" breakfasts are of dubious value. (For a great breakfast, cross the street - carefully - to the Waffle and Pancake Shop that is next to the Denny's. Good food, good service, good prices.)
The motel doesn't have a swimming pool, but for me, that's not important.
