Customer Service!

Budget Host is an older, very basic motel. Rooms were older, but acceptable. What really stood out to me was the fantastic customer service. When I first checked in, the desk clerk looked at the room to which I had been assigned and said that she wanted to change my room to a better one (location). She was very friendly. After about 30 minutes of being in my room the phone rang. It was the desk clerk just calling to check on the room and if I needed anything. The maid did a super job cleaning each night I was there. When I checked out, the morning manager came out and opened the main door as I entered and exited the office. Friendly service goes a long way!

Don't stay here!

The curtains were in tatters. The window above the door would not close. The room smelled like mildew. The shower was scary-looking and only had 5 minutes worth of luke-warm water. The walls are paper thin--you can hear your neighbors, and every car that drove by. I found another place to stay and just forfeited the cost of my room.

Kind of a dump

I chose this place because it was cheap, the location was close to where I was doing business, and some reviewers said it had a good breakfast. Overall, the hotel was clean, but was run down. Cracks in the walls above the door, there was a big hump in the middle of the floor, and the shower had big slumping areas, as if it were about to collapse. The biggest letdown came when I went to enjoy the breakfast. There was nothing except coffee. I mean nothing. The young man at the front desk was apologetic and said the breakers on one side of the room were out and therefore the gravy/eggs were cold. There was no fruit, the juice machine didn't work No pastries No breads. I was willing to settle for cereal, which they had. But guess what - there was not a bowl anywhere! So in the end, I got nothing. Later when checking out, I explained my frustration to the lady (who appeared to be the owner or a senior manager). Rather than apologize, she threw the young man under the bus,saying it was all his fault. At that point, I told her that assigning blame did not change the fact that I, the paying customer, did not get what I had been promised and was not pleased. So the lady reached down under the counter and gave me a "goody" bag that contained a tiny bag of chips and two one-inch candy bars. Oh, and she also gave me "$10 off" for my next stay at her hotel. Needless to say, there will not be another stay at this dump.

Below the expectation

The room was dirty and stinky (lots of stains on the carpet, wall, curtain, bathroom...), water didn't come out well (and sometimes it suddenly got ice cold during the shower), staff members (may be nice if you know them personally) were not helpful enough, the mattress was old and not comfortable, the remote control was not working properly, the internet was bad... I always stay at cheap motels and I don't expect much, and yes, it was the cheapest in the area. But it was below my expectation and one of the worst motels I had ever stayed. I am not sure whether it is good or bad, but its location is great next to I-70. It is easily found from the highway.

Great accomodation

I booked one of our directors in this place recently. He has been staying for couple times at Motel 6 in town which he said is good enough for him. When he transferred to Budget Host I saw the difference it made to him. He was impressed, except that the TV didn't work.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

Unhappy Customer

I would not suggest staying here. The room had such a mold smell/issue that I began to struggle with breathing within 3 minutes of entering the room. I am still having breathing issues and it's been 4 days since I walked in that room. The receptionist said she would try to find me another room, but it was the room next door and it had the same mold issue. I will say that the receptionist was very understanding and made a note next to my reservation about the issue and why I ended up not being able to stay there. It helped when asking for a refund from a travel agency.
