Budget Inn East Columbus

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

People say "you get what you pay" but I do not agree with that statement. If you own a place you must do whatever it takes to make a great impression. The room was not completely clean. The bathroom had hairs from another guest. The room must be upgraded. Ex. tv's, lightning. Staff were good. Easy and fast checkin/checkout.Not staying here again.

Lo vi desde afuera y con eso era suficiente para no entrar tuve que rentar otro hotel grasias

Wouldn't recommend this motel at all, customer service is horrible, was forced to stay in a smoking room! Just nasty. Microwave didn't work. Please do not book this hotel!

Worst hotel experience i ever had not even in a random poor village in the world will find a hotel like this.

I arrived late and thought - oh my, what have I done? There were sketchy characters hanging outside the rooms (all rooms face the outside). When I found the office I mentioned my concern to the couple at the desk and they were very kind and put me in a room right next to the office. There were cigarette holes in the bedspread and a bandaid back on the floor. I have traveled lots/slept in worse but this is not the ** described. When I woke up there was no power in the room and I showered in the dark and left.

Clean hotel that could use a remodel. No fridge in any rooms, sometimes there is a microwave or hair dryer. Decent for the price. Very nice manager at front desk.

We were looking for a hotel that would be on the way, that's wasn't expensive but comfortable. We booked this hotel with a king bed, and free breakfast. The room was clean, the staff was nice, and it was quiet. Comfortable to sleep at night and stay, breakfast was small but it was good. No complaints.

The bath tub water knob was broken it was extremely hard to turn the water on. Also when I first cut the bathroom sink faucet on the water was BLACK!! ewww so I would rather not ever stay there again.

Wasn't the greatest, but it was the only hotel available in the area for the night.

Terrible would not refer.carpeting stained toilet tank overflow no fridge microwave or iron board just bad

Just terrible. It was cheap, and never has "you get what you pay for" been more true. The "non-smoking" room reeked of stale cigarette smoke. The room smelled moldy. Carpeting had stains that actually looked like (couldn't have been, could it?) BLOOD stains. "Breakfast" was a pot of coffee and a jug of apple juice in a dark, cruddy office. As I said, just terrible -- cheap...and not worth the money!

The room smelled really bad and I asked for a non smoking room. The tub was dirty and wasn't sure if the room had been cleaned. It was noisy from foot traffic in late hours.

Room very clean and quite bed was comfortable recommend 130

Friendly staff but dirty room (greasy stains on headboard, mirror and bathroom floor) , holes in bed covers and drapes. The toilet continually ran and despite two promises was never fixed - add to that the noisy plumbing and result is not a good night's sleep. Parking lot is a minefield of potholes and oil stains. Decoration is straight from the 1970's When we checked in the guy was almost apologetic and told us we could get a refund if we chose (that was a missed opportunity) On check out the manager seems totally disinterested about the issues

The hotel room had obviously not been cleaned properly. The bathroom in particular was deplorable. A previous guest had showered. Not only was her hairs left glued to the wall with soap, the tub hadn't been cleaned. There was a gooey gunky build up all over the bottom of the tub.

I had a pleasant experience. I will recommend the hotel to other travelers.

My family and I stayed here for a single night. We were just passing through town on the way to Washington, D.C. It was very inexpensive. It cost just a little more than our dinner at Wendy's. Our room was clean and smelled good. But the general state of the motel is rather poor. We arrived at night and didn't notice the poor condition of the place. If we had arrived in daylight we may have passed on it. The upstairs was blocked off with tape and a garbage can. Breakfast was provided but meager. There are 6 chairs and 3 tables in a tiny office area. Pickings were limited to cereal and oatmeal. The only other thing in the office were people complaining about their rooms. I think we lucked out. It did the job but we won't return. Skip this one.

I really liked the Travelodge Hotel.I thought it was in a great location.Their is a Starbucks nearby,Family Fun Center for Go Cart Riding and Miniature Golfing.The freeway is also so nearby so definitely a plus.The hotel is decent.Enjoy your stay!!

This is an alright hotel at best. The staff is friendly enough. The rooms are outdated though. The service and the staff are on par with the price of the room.

Front desk employee seemed confused by my reservation printout, but figured it out. Room was cold but heated up fairly quickly. No microwave or fridge and a lamp didn't work, but bathroom, bed, and TV was fine, which is all I needed. I saved $20 on the room, which I used for other things!
