They over charge you for your room and tell u to come back if u don’t stay all your days for a refund but when u go get your refund they call the police on you. Not a good place to stay. They steal out your room. Never going back there. They get a -10 in my book. Hotel just Ragley.

You'll be astonished when you open your door and see how expensive the room "feel" is! New Bed, BIG BIG screen TV, Totally new bathrooms that could be in a $200 room and an owner whom is very friendly and understanding ( i was in a car accident and shwed up past midnight and he was up waiting with a smile)! This Hotel could charge double what they do for the overall package : )

I was pretty surprised by how nice this place was. Was clean, no funny smells,everything worked. Room had an iron and board, coffeeaker, fridge/freezer, microwave, hair dryer. AC worked great. Will go back.

The rooms are old but very clean. The floor squeaked quite a bit. The bathroom was recently redone, and looked really nice. The shower had great water pressure. We would be happy to back back again in the future.

When we first pulled in to the Budget Inn (after being on the road 12 hours) we weren't overly impressed by the "curb appeal". However, I learned a long time ago that you don't judge a book by its cover. The name of the place is "Budget Inn" and that's what we were looking for. We checked in, asked for a late check out (as we had things to do in Elko and knew we would want to clean up before we got back on the road again) and got to our room. Our room was clean and comfortable for the age of the hotel. The bathroom had recently been renovated and looked great. Water pressure was excellent. We took off early the next morning to take care of our business but ran late returning. When we arrived at our late check out time, the owners let us take showers before we got on the road. As a matter of fact, the owner also helped me put some things on top of my car and strap them down. Very nice couple (and unfortunately, I don't have their business card handy to personally recognize them). While I don't expect to ever be back in Elko, if I was passing through and needed a place to stay, I would return to the Budget Inn.

Overall we were happy with the Budget Inn. The woman working there was very friendly so checking in, out was no problem. For the price, you really can't beat it. It's not a long term kind of place-very basic. We liked the location, next to a nice park and the downtown area.

This is a pleasant old fashioned motel. Our room was clean and comfortable, with a large TV and all the amenities necessary for an overnight stay. Excellent value and perfect for a short stop on a road trip.

We stayed for 4 nights. Moved rooms because the TV wasn't working in our room. Price was really cheap, But the hotel was nothing to write home about. Didn't have a closet, but did have a rack & bar to hang clothes on in the room. People were nice.

My main complaint for this motel is the poor quality of their mattress's. They were very thin and hard as a rock. Cleanliness was borderline average. Sheets seemed a little worn out and the toilet had a ring around the bowl. Other than those two items, the room looked ok. If it wasn't for the mattress, I could give this place an average rating. There are better alternatives in Elko for $50 a night.

Don't judge a book by its cover! Whilst it looks rough on the outside we were surprised to find inside a fully renovated motel room on the inside. The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was spotless, it had all the amenities required. The television was huge. A surprising package!
