Budgetel Inn Glen Ellyn

1.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

It was infested with cockroaches and bed bugs. bugs were all over the bed. i lifted the mattress and it was full of darks stains.

Not worth writing about. You have to be kidding me. How much can one write about a hotel in a great location whose property value would be best served as a tear-down for a nicer place.

We liked it. You get what you pay. Nothing bad happened, just something not enough

I requested a non smoking room so when I checked in there were no drapes on the windows just vertical blinds no bedspread just a blanket. The plastic was still on the mattress springs. The hotel itself was in deperate need of updating broken door handles large scratches in the entry doors . .However it was quiet and close and had hot water - just no blowdryer

Tv was good. Kind of worn down room and bathroom. Pieces of sink counter missing, unfinished wood exposed. Entire building seemed very worn.

Overall a cheap one night stay. I wouldn't stay here if I had family. The room is average and comes with the essentials. The one thing I really didn't like was that the room was non-smoking but it still smelled like cigarette in the bathroom.

It was OK with you and your friends and family members and their parents and children and adults and children and adults and the new York City new Zealand the same thing as well as other than a year and a lot of people in the morning of the best way to get to know if.

Pros: Hotel staff were nice and friendly and gave me change for the Illinois tolls when most other businesses wouldn't. That is a plus. Also good location right off I-355 so quick to get on and off highway, etc. Cons: Although they said they had WiFi, it was not enough to get any work done. I was trying to review work emails, watch netflix movie, etc and spent 1.5 hours getting disconnected and reconnecting. It took me 3 evenings to get through an hour show. Bed was really poor no support and bedspreads and sheets had dirt stains, some red color from something and holes. I would give this 1-2 stars. Giving it 2 because of friendly hotel staff.

The location & signage of the hotel is very poor. This was not a 3 star hotel, it was barely a 1 star hotel. The hotel looked like an old run down apt. building.

Booked the hotel for the price and the photos that made it look like more and the reviews that ... averaging out made us believe it would be fine for two nights. After the brawl in the hallway outside our door at midnight or so, we decided to leave the next morning. The front desk clerk did allow a refund but only after we contacted this service who had to call the hotel to get approval. Do NOT be tempted!

the first room .the room was up two flights of stairsit looked very chap. i can't climp stairs very well.a worker who was putting in a new floor by the door,helped me to the room. i called the desk and asked for a first floor room. that room was nicer.i will never stay there again

the hotel is certainly in need of a make over (that appears to be in the works) - the location is great, area upscale and the management is working hard to improve the overall. My room was clean and neat but the hall ways, staircases, etc. where unfavorable.

It was nice but the pool could have been warmer n the breckfast could have been better..

I checked in and was given a very small and uncomfortable room with a broken TV and heater. I spent the night in that room because I was exhausted and went to the front desk in the morning and got another room. the second room was better but there was no iron or ironing board in the room, no ice tray and, the ice machine in that wing was broken. The evening front desk staff was very rude and refuse to give me extra towels. The evening front desk staff was also very offensive when he said my friends who visited me and I were "not like white people" and threatened to call the police on us because we were laughing and joking in their indoor pool. He also refused to give us pool towels and refused to turn the heat on in the pool. It got so cold that steam was rising from the (barely) heated water. This was the absolute worst hotel stay I have ever had and when I expressed this at check out they just said "oh, we'll talk to that guy" and did not offer to remedy the situation in any way.

This was the grossest hotel I have ever been in. The floor was collapsing under the carpet because the air conditioner continually dripped on the floor, so you couldn't step on the floor by the window. The bedding was dirty and the bed was broken. The TV remote didn't work for volume or channel and the bathroom was also dirtier then I've ever seen. DO NOT STAY HERE!

it definatly wasn't the best value but it was okay.. I would stay there again just because it's cheap.

the location of the hotel is hard to see from the road. The breakfast is a joke. The beds was a fullsize boxspring with a dbl mattress on top. the floor is worped and u feel like you might fall through the floor. The pool was not warm at all and looked gross. I will never stay in that hotel again

This was the worst hotel I have ever been to in my life. Staff was rude. The hotel lacks cleanliness, the pool was not worth getting into. The place was just nasty. BAD BAD BAD EXPERIENCE.............................................NEVER AGAIN

My experience was horrible. The bathtub wouldn't drain and I got hung up on my staff when I called about it. I asked several time for maid service and did not receive it. couldn't get new towels. Ended up throwing my trash in the hall cause I couldn't get maid service. When we found ticks and fleas in the beds we left and asked for a refund on the days remaining on our reservation.

The halls and rooms smelled, could not get fresh towels till 9am the next day. When arriving at night the sign is hidden by trees. Needs a remodel.
