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.

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.

DO NOT STAY HERE!!

The owner is a thief!! Within an hour of checking in, maintenance came to the door saying the room below was complaining of a water leak. When we noticed the sink was leaking, they moved us. 8 days later they charged my card $200 accusing us of causing the damage. Knowing we didn't cause any damage, I disputed the charge, yet he refuses to refund my money, insisting it was us, even though he has no proof! Only that we were there the night it was discovered. He also refuses to speak to me personally regarding the situation and makes his staff email me. Two months later I am still trying to get my money back so I have filed a complaint with the BBB. He is the most unprofessional business owner I have ever dealt with. Apparently the staff doesn't have a clue either since the damage has been around so long without anyone noticing. The place is a slum!!

Thin walls, no bathroom door, wet substance on the sheets upon arrival. The staff members were nice but room was pretty beat up.
