I recently stayed at the Budget Inn to attend a nearby wedding. At first appearances, I was pleasantly surprised - the Inn looks recently remodeled and had a nice bar/restaurant in the lobby. It is also conveniently located right off I-80.
We arrived a bit early and checked in even though our room wasn't going to be ready until close to 2:00 (the posted check-in time). We left to grab some lunch and came back at 2:00 - our room was still not ready. We were told our room was still being cleaned. Being understanding and patient, we waited in the lobby (with other wedding guests whose rooms were also still being cleaned).
Around 2:45 I asked if our room was going to be ready (I was getting a bit nervous because we needed to get ready for a 3:30 wedding and were already going to miss the 3:00 shuttle to the wedding). I was given a key to a room. We uploaded our car and headed to the room. Well...the room was already occupied. Luckily, the couple I barged in on was understanding (and fully clothed). Without an apology from the front desk for this mistake, we were assigned the correct room.
The room itself was standard and clean, with a flat screen television, microwave, and fridge. However, the towels smelled like cigarette smoke.
Overall, we were greatly inconvenienced by having to wait 45 minutes past check-in time to get our room. I think if the posted check-in time says 2:00, you should have your rooms ready at that time.
