Well it isnt a 5 star but there was a nice mexican resturant to eat at on the property. They let us stay in the pool as long as we wanted he said to just call the desk when we were done. The rooms were fine. Close to Holiday World without having to pay the outragious price. The only problem would be that everything closed at like 6:00 and there wasnt anywhere to eat at except there resturant for miles. but hey had to drive a bit to eat still was closer and didnt have to pay an arm and a leg plus they were very nice.

I stayed at the Budget Host for a trip to Holiday World about 7 or 8 years ago and was not impressed. I was very hesitant to stay there again, but nothing else was available in a reasonable price range and my husband found our last visit to the Budget Host to be quite humorous so he convinced me to book it. It had a new paint job since our last visit and the rooms definitely got some improvements, but its still a very budget class motel. Some unexpected amenities included a refridgerator, free wi-fi (although it barely worked) and a pool (not sure if this was added since our last visit or we just didn't notice it last time as it is hidden in the back of the motel). The beds are old and have seen better days and the pillows are flat. But everything seemed clean. The chair had been repaired with duct tape. The bathroom is small and suffers from the lack of a fan and a toilet that was crooked and would run uncontrollably at strange intervals (something we do recall from our last visit). In fact one morning the bathroom floor was all wet because the toilet tank had overflowed. The room was equipped with plenty of soap and shampoo, but no extra toilet paper. One odd thing we noticed is that the "room freshener" was a bar of soap that someone stuck into the vents of the air conditioner. It definitely gave our room that clean, soapy smell. The parking lot could use some resurfacing and the bar out front can get a little loud on the weekend, but we slept well here and can't complain too much. As someone else posted, the room does come with a fly swatter which we had to use, but only once when we first arrived.
