“Nice Place!”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

Out of all the hotels where I reserved rooms for our AZ / NM road trip, I was most concerned about this one. For starters, I only had a verbal confirmation, no email. That made me nervous. However, everything worked out just fine. The hotel is older (no pool), but it was clean and comfortable. There was no breakfast, but there was coffee, tea and hot chocolate in the lobby and a fridge and microwave in the room. It is not a destination, but it is perfect for passing through. The hotels in Flagstaff seem very expensive. I chose this one based on the good reviews it had and the price was right. Behind the hotel is the Galaxy Diner. A great retro diner where you can get good comfort food and a Route 66 experience.

Ill start off with the fact that I love flagstaff, it was my first time and its a lovely place and the inn is very conveniently located, and near enough for a trip to the Grand Canyon

However, when returning from the Grand Canyon at 9pm we got to our room.. And the door was just left wide open???!!!!!!!!

I was FUMING all of our stuff was in this room?! And it's a motel so anyone driving past can just see the door open!! What the hell!!!!

We went down to reception to complain and all the guy did was agree with us that it was poor, and that we still had 2/3 nights with them. I doubt it was followed up. What would have happened if our room was looted?! Sheesh.

Seriously how can you be a maid and just leave the room open? She hadn't even emptied the trash or replaced anything! All she did was make the bed! What a risk! It's a shame because both of us liked it here but we can't take chances with a complacent maid - we left the do not disturb on the door for the rest of our stay

We stayed here one night on the way back from the Grand Canyon. The room was very clean and comfortable! No complaints, except the price (which was probably high due to holiday weekend) and no clock in the room.
The owner or manager was great. We left something in the room and he was kind enough to mail it back to us, which was much appreciated.

Clean, microwave, fridge, super comfy bed and pillows, flat screen TV. No frills here, just a nice place to stay for a low rate. We stopped here while driving through Flagstaff because of the reviews. Would stay here again.

We typically don't stay in these types of motels because they usually are run down or not very clean. This was not the case with the Budget Inn. While it's an older motel, it was very well maintained and very clean. The towels were thin and small, but that was a small inconvenience considering there was a fridge and microwave that worked well, an A/C that worked well, it was quiet, had a comfortable bed and all the amenities usually provided in the upscale motels. The location was great and if we ever visit Flagstaff overnight, we will for sure be staying here.

Clean room, convenient location, good value. Stayed overnight while traveling through Flagstaff and was impressed with the extras in room at the very reasonable price. Would stay there again

As name suggests, this will appeal primarily to budget travelers. Our rate was $60/night, although it may have been available for $50 if we had waited for Hotwire price to decline. There are several features about this property that will exceed budget traveler expectations. Room size and modern furnishings are decidedly better than most budget hotels. Location (across street from Embassy Suites Hotel and Northern Arizona University campus) is safe and convenient to many eateries (I recommend Galaxy Diner, Bun Hugger & Salsa Brava, for non-chain options), quality micro-breweries (Beaver Street Brewery, Brews & Cues, and Mother Road), and downtown historic district (check out Charley's in old hotel as well as Flagstaff Visitor Center in old train station). Finally, I would be remiss not to mention Mr. Patel, the exceptionally friendly and helpful innkeeper (who lives at Budget Inn), from whom you can get excellent tips on area vacation considerations of all sorts. Drive to Grand Canyon from hotel took us no more than 1:45 mins each way and was beautiful trip through Coconino National Park with its majestic Ponderosa pines, Birch tree stands, and views of Mt. Humphrey's 12,000 snow capped peak. Four nights at hotel and not a single thing to complain about. Would give higher rating than 3 stars but it was not a resort, just a very good budget inn.

Room Tip: Upper floor room was good; probably farther away from Milton Rd is best.
