“Great value, best budget priced hotel around”
Reviewed October 7, 2011

We booked a room at the Budget Inn in downtown Flagstaff on the spur of the moment, to stay over after a concert at NAU. Since we were checking in late and leaving early the next morning, we didn't feel we needed luxury, but we did want a nice place, with good cable. We like to take a look at ESPN and maybe an HBO show, and we wanted a non-smoky, non-smelly, comfortable room. All that is usually hard to find in a lower priced room in downtown Flagstaff. We've paid more than we wanted to in the past to get a decent room and still had to deal with smells in the past.

Well, we lucked out with the Budget Inn! The remodeling they told us they did in November 2010 has given them a nice level of finish, and they have good quality free cable, with both ESPN and HBO. The beds were very comfortable, the bathroom was spacious and completely fitted out, the room was quiet and away from the train tracks and road noise, heating was fine. The room smelled fresh, no hint of smoke or artificial air freshener - either which can really get a migraine going for me. It's not easy to find a room that suits us for the price we paid: $56 at the AARP rate - but we were very pleased. The folks at the front desk were lovely to deal with, gave us detailed directions to get us there. A great experience, and we'll definitely stay there again in the future.

I also left a favorite sweater mixed in with the bedding. The maid found it, and the desk clerk was so very kind about mailing it to me right away. This sort of service is hard to find for twice the price!

This is not a luxurious motel by any means, but it is a great basic room, with pluses you don't expect. There is no breakfast that I know of, but we have our own favorite breakfast places in Flagstaff and don't really enjoy the continental breakfasts that some places provide. We can highly recommend this Budget Inn.

Room Tip: The rooms back from the street, like the one we had, are quiet.

We were really pleased with this motel. Very clean, quiet and great value for money. You can even walk to the town centre (15 mins) with its many bars and restaurants. Would recommend.

We stayed here during Family Weekend for NAU, and used the room only for sleeping. The staff was helpful, even when the battery on the door ran out and needed replacing. The room was clean and the amenities were all covered, even if they were basic. This isn't a luxurious place, but I would definitely stay here again, when I am in town to visit my student.

The motel was clean, quiet and a centrally located near the Historic Downtown area, but not so close to the road as to be noisy. The person at the front desk was polite and efficient.
We would stay here again for sure.
