“Well worth the money”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

it isn't the fanciest place in town, but for the price you can't beat it. The room was clean and comfortable. the shower was nice with plenty of hot water. the room had a TV, WiFi, microwave and fridge. We would definately stay there again if we are in Emporia.

Nice surprise. First time at Budget Host. Would stay there again! We will look for more Budget Hotels in our travels. The price was great for all you get. This was a great find!

We stayed at the Budget Inn during our stay in Emporia, Ks. Everything was better than the Baymont we stayed at in Corydon, IL. It had gone down hill since we stayed there two years ago and it cost twice as much. We had never stayed there before, but we will be staying there when we visit in the future. We were very pleased with our experience

The Motel was clean, safe, convenient and staffed with very friendly and helpful people. Mtr Patel was always available and went the extra mile to ensure our stay was a pleasant one. The only drawbackas no swiiming pool on the premises and Emporia gets hot in the summer!
I would defintely recommend Budget Host Inn to any travelers visiting Emporia. Also, we stayed for a week so laundry on site and a good ice machine were also useful as was the power strip between the beds.

Room Tip: No pool on the property but things were very quiet and peaceful.

I found this place on here. I must say after reading the reviews I'm happy the management replies to the reviews.
The whole room was clean,well put,and overall nice.

the bathroom was pretty clean,could just stand on cleaning the cracks in the tubs/wall a little more could see some mold,but other than that everything was great.

since my family was traveling this month we pulled into emporia around 12 am and the management was helpful and very kind at that hour of night.

Do recommend and will be coming back again!

Nice and clean place to stay. Check in was fast and clerk was friendly. Rooms are quite large and comfortable. A little off the beaten path but I do recommended staying here. Pet friendly and very reasonably priced

Budget Host Inn Emporia is very basic but clean. Has TV, fridge, Wi-Fi, microwave. It is a bit off the beaten track, but the price is very reasonable. Allows pets as well. Ample parking. Good, basic place to stay while on the road.
