“No deal at the Budget Inn”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2007

No security lock
Can smell the smoke in a no smoking room
Seedy clients

We are poor students looking for a clean comfortable stay. If that is what you want beware the Budget Inn!

Worst hotel experience ever.

The desk clerk cussed (extremely bad language) at my 84 year old grandfather who has Parkinsons. My grandfather is a very calm and clean spoken man and it upset him greatly. As we were leaving the hotel my grandfather went to the desk clerk to inform him that the air conditioner was very loud and the bathroom needed a lot of work. My grandfather's comments were very calmly and respectfully stated but the young and dissheveled man at the desk agressivly told this old man if he didn't like it he could take his "sh-- and get the he-- out." He also used the F word. My grandfather just turned around and left, he was very shocked.

The room was a dive. There was no vent in the bathroom and thus it was very embarrassing. The wall paint was cracking & pealing badly. The air conditioner & heater was installed at the ceiling and we had to climb on a chair to adjust it, impossible for an old person to use and dangerous for everyone. It was even too high for my 6 ft grandfather to reach from the floor. Furthermore, the air conditioner made an outrageous roar all night.

The carpet was very old and worn out, with plenty of stains.

Desk clerk was nasty and insulting when we asked for two more sets of towels because this room that sleeps 4 people only had two towels.

When checking in the desk clerk was speaking very sharply and rudely to a potential customer on the phone.

It is cheap but not worth it. We spent the same amount per night at the Super 8 in Cortez and had a fantastically clean and modern hotel room. Pass Budget Inn in Durango bye. What a dive. What rude people.

This hotel is OK if you just need a good night's sleep at a very affordable price. Don't expect anything fancy. Beware if you use a credit card to make your reservations. They reply with an email that contains the last 4 digits of the CC number along with a Word document attachment containing the rest of the credit card number!!! They are jeopardizing credit card privacy by doing this. There is NO reason to be putting a CC number in a Word document or an email. This is poor business practice. I warned them about this, but I don't know if they've changed their CC handling practices since then.

Ok, I'm having the worst time trying to find a decent hotel this month. This place was just sad. They said they had rooms for $44 but that is only if you sleep in a full size bet, i figured my "queen size" was small enough. They charged me extra for bringing my dog (which I was unaware of ahead of time). The room was tiny and the bathroom was tiny. At least the shower was new. There were cracks in the walls and the ceiling. There was a huge stain on the floor right in front of the bed so I got to look at it each time I climbed into bed. The room was about 5 feet from the street so I got to hear the traffic all night long (especially Harley motorcycles). The noisy people in the parking lot also helped insure that I did not get any sleep. The curtains in the room had holes in them (probably to let more sun in). I think I would have been better off sleeping in my car.
