Budget Host Inn Gilman
Ranked #3 of 3 Hotels in Gilman
Reviewed June 23, 2006

I have stayed at the Budget Host many times. The owner is friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and comfortable. "My" room has a refrigerator and microwave. Not all do, so ask.

Both smoking and non-smoking rooms available with a non-smoking building on the premises. You will not find luxury perks here, but you will be comfortable in this older motel with rooms that are larger than newer hotels in the same classificiation. The separate, newer, non-smoking building at the rear has accessibility, but the main building would not accomodate wheelchairs. The owner told me that by July 2006, she hopes to have a wireless network up and running because she must to stay up with the other two motels in town.

Parking is at the door of each room. You are near restaurants and fast food, from two truck stop restaurants to Dairy Queen, Marco's Pizza and others in downtown Gilman which I've not been to.

The only disadvantage is having to use your car to go pretty much anywhere. Highway 24 and 45 run together in front of the motel, so walking can be dangerous. Also, due to its location near a grain elevator (think tall building in terms of the prairie), cell phones do not work well at this location. Bring a phone card.
