“Clean & spacious room, good security and convenient location near downtown Phoenix, AZ”
Reviewed February 20, 2009

I needed an economical place to stay near downtown Phoenix, AZ. I was visiting the city on business and did not want to pay the higher prices at the major hotels downtown. The Budget Lodge was about five short blocks west of the Phoenix Convention Center and I decided to try it out.

I stayed for four nights and found the experience to be a good one. The staff is friendly and helpful. The room was recently remodled and very clean. Coffee was ready each morning at 7:00am. The room access was through a secure hallway and the parking was close to the building.

Overall, I had a great stay at a very good price.

We were looking for a place near the Phoenix Convention center that was not as expensive as the main hotels. It was nice and comfortable. Staff was very pleasant and helpful.
Within walking distance to most major downtown areas plus only a couple blocks to the new transit system.

If you want a cheap and convenient place to live, probably you can choose here. It is clean and it provides basic service. But except for these, you cannot expect any more for such a cheap motel. Another good thing for living here is that you will never miss anything important in the morning, because you will be waked up very early by the traffic.

  • Liked — Low price
  • Disliked — Too noisy in the morning due to the traffic

I was very pleased with this room. I have stayed in hotel/motels all over the country and this one is great. Rooms have TV's, frig, irons and ironing boards. Beds are comfortable and pillows are full. Rooms are clean; even the corners. The price is unbelievable. You can pay over 4 times more for a room 7 blocks away! This is my third different stay at this motel and it is great every time. I have stayed at the Ritz and for the value and results, I will come back here everytime.

This hotel is an excellent alternative to the larger (and 3x more expensive) downtown hotels. I walked 3 blocks farther to the convention center and saved a lot of money. My room was very clean and well-kept, wifi worked fine, and the place was very quiet overnight. I'll book here again on my next trip.

I was in Phoenix for a conference during mid-January. All hotels were booked and very expensive (this hotel cost about 1/3 of the nearby hotels). I had found this hotel by means of Google maps. The place is just 10 minutes walk from the Convention Center, the room was recently remodeled, very clean and comfortable, with fridge and microwave, and the bathroom was new. Furthermore, free internet and cable tv in the room (I did not need any other amenities, such as swimming pool, etc.) The owner is also very kind. I would recommend this hotel to everyone.

The Budget Lodge Motel in downtown Phoenix, Arizona (402 W. Van Buren Street) is a pleasant surprise. Located only 15 minutes walk from the Convention Center, this motel is clean, quiet, and very reasonably priced. So much so that I was initially skeptical that it would be OK. I need not have worried. The room, with two double beds, was clean, large and well-maintained, with plenty of well-positioned lights, a desk and chair, and a nice TV. Everything worked great. Even the coffee at the complimentary breakfast (with muffins and fruit) in the morning was good. This is not a luxury location. Just a good place to stay, really close to the convention district downtown. The new METRO, with a stop only about 4 blocks from the motel is an added plus. It will get you to and from the airport (about 4.5 miles away) for less than a couple of bucks. Just make sure to buy a ticket and have it on you when you are on the train.
