Clean, quiet place to sleep

Wanted a bed with a shower. That's what we got. Not the best part of town, but close to where we wanted to be. The owners were really nice, but the waiting room did smell like curry... I kind of liked it. "Continental breakfast" was coffee with powder creamer, SunnyD and granola bars with yogurt, but it worked.

Big bang for the buck

I was in town for three nights for work. The manager that checked me in was very professional and efficient in getting me checked in. The room was clean. The mattress was a little old but still comfortable. My only gripe was that the TV is a low resolution CRT and in the grand scheme of things not a big deal. The combination of location for work and low price makes this hotel a winner.

Absolutely great value

I booked in here based on ratings and am happy I did. This is the absolute best value in downtown Phoenix. The rooms are extremely clean, bathrooms sparkle and staff is friendly and helpful. I was surprised to find out that the last renovation on the rooms was 8 years ago--they are spotless and very well maintained. Basic continental breakfast of juice, coffee, rolls, yogurt etc. but for the rate everything was just right. No frills, pool etc but I recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a clean, safe place in downtown Phoenix.

The Garage restaurant on Bethany Home and 16th is a great place. Happy hour prices are good and yummy flatbreads.

I was in Phoenix to attend a convention. The convention housing was sold out. This place is walking distance from the convention center. The staff is friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend!

Budget stay at Budget lodge downtown Phoenix

Nothing can beat the price of this place for this area. The room was quite clean and the entire motel is better off than one might expect of an establishment of this type. The TV, wi-fi, coffee-maker and more - all worked. It was not noisy. There were plenty of spaces to park, which we have used. And this place is blocks away from downtown Phoenix attractions, close to the light rail, which gets you to a lot of places in the greater Phoenix area.

Go and see the amazing Arizona Biltmore. Gem of a hotel, with nice restaurants, artwork and the pool.

Drove into downtown Phoenix with no place to stay...

Drove in downtown Phoenix with no place to stay, and came across the budget lodge.......this place is a hidden gem. Not too much to look at on the outside, but by far one of the cleanest rooms I have ever stayed in. The owners are very nice and always eager to help no matter what the issue. We were going to a sporting event at the US Airways Center and walked the couple of blocks....... Great place to stay....and will be staying again next time we are in town.

Best bang for your buck

My stay was great. The staff was friendly, efficient, and helpful with where to go for food. My room was sparsely furnished/decorated, but very clean and generally quiet. There weren't many amenities other than a slight breakfast with decent coffee, but I didn't expect any for this price. The hotel is a short 3-block walk from the Central Station transit center, so it's very easy to take the light rail to and from the airport - skip the cab and save $25 each way!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The metro light rail runs to many parts of Phoenix, including the airport, as well as Tempe. It is fast, clean, and super cheap. It stops at the Central Station transit center in downtown and from there you can get anywhere easily.

Review of Budget Hotel

The sheets and bathroom were always cleaned and my need for a microwave oven and a refrigerator with a freezer for my medicine was essential. One thing I noted was the WiFi connectivity. Despite my repeated attempts, I could not obtain WiFi connectivity. The owner tried to help me but I could not enter the password key to gain access to this encrypted WiFi connection. Other than that, my stay was what I expected; an economical hotel within walking distance to the Phoenix Convention Center. The street people and the people sleeping on the sidewalk made my night time walks back to the hotel exciting. Best Regards, Terry Kane
