The Budget Motel is definitely a one-star property and is inexpensive, but it offers a reasonably good value for its low price.

The property is family-run and the lobby is about one would expect from a one-star hotel - small, non-descript, and not fancy. However, the service was extremely friendly and helpful. Although our reservation - which was made ahead of time directly via phone call to the property - was somehow lost, the person who took our reservation the week earlier was at the property and we were quickly booked into the room.

The room was clean on all accounts, but nothing fancy. The TV worked, the AC worked, the water ran hot and cold (unlik other budget-conscious properties we have stayed at), and the bathroom area was neat and clean and tidy with plentiful towels. There were many little items here and there that didn't work or weren't in top shape - burned out light bulbs, broken/ripped light shade on one light, a crack in the bathroom wall where the shower was seated into the wall, hard-water deposits in the toilet bowl, a creaking floor joint - but for the price and the one-star rating, these things could be overlooked.

We stayed in a second-story room. Despite the heat of the summer, the AC unit took care of the heat in about 30 minutes. The TV had more stations than one would expect from a budget motel. The room was also extremely quiet. All in all, we had a restful night's sleep ... and definitely a stay worth the value of the price we paid.

Additional tips:

1. The Budget Motel accepts AAA. It will save you about 10% on the reservation.

2. Ask for an upstairs room if one is available. The floor in our room creaked and I am certain it was heard into the room beneath us on the first floor.

3. If you plan to arrive after 8PM, be sure to note that when making your reservation. Delta itself starts closing up around 9PM and the hotel is no exception. You may also want to follow-up on your reservation to make sure it was actually booked and annotated.

4. If you left your amenities (e.g. toothbrush, toothpaste, shaving cream, etc.), the lobby has the items for sale at somewhat inflated "convenience" prices. If you forgot such things, the better bet is to go the grocery store located about 150 yards west of the property.

5. The Budget Motel is located about a half-black south of Main Street at 350 East. Be sure to look closely as you are traveling on Main Street and it should get you there.

6. The Budget Motel is also located about 50 yards east of a McDonald's - handy for breakfast or a snack - and within about 150 yards east of a Subway sandwich store (which starts locking up promptly at 8:45PM).

7. If you are looking for a quick dip in a swimming pool after a hot day, this property is not for you.

8. Cell phone reception can be "iffy" at times. Being in Delta, this problem is NOT an exclusive problem associated with the Budget Motel.

we stayed two nights at the budjet motel in june 2008. we had four rooms for our extended family,one with a king, three with 2 double beds. all rooms were very clean,all had mini fridges and microwaves. the king room had a stove top and sink. you will not find valet parking or turndown service,but for $37.00 it can't be beat. even the pop machines were only $.50

I just read a terrible review of the Budget motel. They mentioned a cozy place across the street. I want to say that the place across the street truly is horrible with everything worn out and sand drifting in under the gappy doors. The Budget motel is run by a family, and yes there are kids present, and the Father appears to be permanently bedridden and on oxygen so cut them a break, the place is reasonably clean and quiet and the beds are not as bad as many I have come across. If you want to pay twice as much for 20% better, there is a Best Western not far off.

We found the Budget Motel in Delta to be way below par. Smelly dirty carpets, proprietor's kids running around and crying, dirty windows with sticky locks, dismal reception and hall area, ice machine didn't work. The price was rock bottom, $35. for one night, but we chose Budget because it had a AAA recommendation. Why I'll never know. There is a nice cozy looking place across the street and a couple more down the main street. So if you are there for rockhounding or whatever, no need to book in advance.
