“Wonderful place to stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

We stayed at this hotel on Christmas Eve while visiting Family. Excellent Lodging! The Price, a definately plus. Clean Comfortable Room and Bed and a truly Friendly atmosphere. The included Breakfast was very good. I thought I left my Bracelet in the room but fortunately found it. They Graciously made a long distance call to report they had not found it. We will Definately stay here again and wish there were more Like it inour travels!

we took a weekend trip that included Meramac Caverns and Zip lining. Budget Lodging was very clean. Staff very friendly and the beds super comfortable. The included breakfast was basic, but had a few more items than some budget motels, and was good. I would stay there again if in the area.

For the money you pay this has to be one of the best value motels we have stayed at. The room we had was very nice and spacious and we were fortunate enough to have time to sit by the pool when we arrived. The free popcorn is very nice as well. The staff are great and very helpfull. We would definitely stay here again

A family locally owned hotel? It's like finding a leprechaun riding a unicorn! After experiencing a nearby hotel that gave our confirmed room to someone else (the last avail room nonetheless), Tom at Budget Lodging had 2 rooms left and said he'd hold it for us... Just on our word alone! What? No credit card? No blood sample or first born child promise?? Not at all. And when we arrived, he warmly welcomed us and thanked us for our business.

Now this is not the Hilton. But it was clean, quaint and pet friendly. With no other avail rooms in 50 miles, it sure felt like the Hilton to us. The service alone was nothing short of remarkable. Stay here, support local business and tell the chains to take a hike!!

Great staff, clean and comfortable at a reasonable price. We stayed here on our return trip as well. Hotel Managers--take notice--this is how it should be done!!! We made several calls to hotels in this area and it was clear that this staff was the best trained in customer service. Easy choice.

We usually check on line before making reservations but this time came in late, didn't have much choice but lucked out with this place. Staff was very friendly, place was clean and quiet and had a decent breakfast. The rate was reasonable. Would plan to stay again when in the area.

Nice well kept older motel. Some renovations have taken place, could use a few more. Rooms were clean and quiet. Staff very nice. Breakfast is adequate. Free internet. A good travel bargin. They do offer AAA or AARP discounts if you ask on check in.

One thing I really liked is they have designated pet rooms - important to me as I don't like sleeping where pets have been!!!! This was a big PLUS for me.

A good affordable place for a stop over!
