what you see is what you get...it is worth the price nothing more
had no expectations!
Tried out two rooms, both had non smoking sign on them, but the cigarette smell was so strong that I could not fall asleep. If you are a smoker, this is probably fair value for the money.
Rooms where quiet, clean and cheap!. I booked online, so I was not able to view the property before I arrived. First glance, I wanted to turn around, but gave it a shot anyway. I truly expected roaches, but there weren't any, which my stay tolerable.
Mostly locals or homeless residing in the hotel on a weekly or monthly basis. I say that because, my car sat in that huge parking lot out front for 3 days by itself, which made me think the hotel was empty, but people were in the rooms. Also, wifi never worked, so I spent a lot of time in the library and free breakfast is a joke.
The price was awesome my room was very clean bed very comfortable
The lobby stinks has an old smell so as the room
location and convience
My online price was $60.00 and the hotel marquee was advertising $49.00...I felt cheated.
All of the other hotels were leveraging the fact that most hotels were sold out and the prices were ridiculous. Budgeted Inn was reasonable and accommodating on a very short notice.
The facilities could be a little more modern.
You was in walking distance of shopping
When we checked in no toilet paper tub water would not turn off no phone in room and no HBO
1-inch gap between the door and floor; someone had obviously tried to force the door at one time, as the swing lock on the inside was bent; there was rust along the baseboard in the bathroom, and the bathtub had part of the porcelain polished veneer missing. And outside our room, and all alomg the walkway in front of the rooms, there were wires hanging down in spots. I probably would not stay again.
The manager did attempt to correct the situation.
A room was booked for two adults and 1 child --- for a king bed with a sofa sleeper. A handicapped room was requested both in the amenities and in the additional information section noting the handicapped requirements. The first room did not have a handicapped bath or commode. The next room had an accessible bath, but only a full size bed and no accommodations for the child. The next room also did not have accommodation for a child or handicapped equipment. The fourth room was slightly better but the AC fan was clanging extremely loudly. Then we we're shown another room and it was obviously a smoking room. All the rooms smelled less than ideal. The manager then said he would replace the old AC unit and bring a roll- away bed. When I opened the pillow case there were dead little brown insects inside. If we had not already paid for two nights we would have left. It was that bad. There we're grab bars in the bath but the commode height was not ADA and the sink and counter we're slanting down so much that things rolled off. Amazingly awful.
The staff is very rude. Most of the lights didn't work in the room. TV remote didn't work. Carpet was soaked near the bathroom area. The bathroom door did not have a latch so you couldn't close the door. Worst part of all is that the shower only had hot water so you couldn't take a shower without burning yourself. I called the front desk and I told them about the problems and I got no apologies just said nothing I could do for you since their was no other rooms. I thought we could get some type of discount but said they couldn't because I booked through booking.com. The room definitely wasn't worth $119. a night
It had a microwave, as well as a fridge that was nice and cold. The TV was adequate, bed mattresses were comfortable enough for one night. (The pillows were OK, but I used my own)The bathtub and tile looked new.
Yellowed sheets (anyone there heard of Clorox?!) SUPER rough towels that were frayed and similar to what I'd use to wash my car with...Thick dust lining the perimeter of the carpet where the vacuum cleaner did not get close enough to the wall. My headboard hung on the wall by a screw that was not secure and it fell off the wall during the night. The air conditioner cut off when it reached a certain temp, and could not be coaxed to turn on again. We had to run the fan just to get some air. The coffee maker was so dirty, it looked like they'd just bought it at Goodwill, and a complete lack of caulking around the bathroom sink looked unfinished and reminded me of some awful gas station. Overall not anywhere I'd recommend. Plus it wasn't cheap. Never again.....
Staff was rude and lacked and customer service skills
Dead roaches everywhere. Room was musty smelling. Towels looked used and unclean. I would not even walk barefoot in the room it was so nasty. For 129$ it should have been much better. Other guests while checking out told me their room was just as bad. This is the type of place prostitutes and drug dealers use. Comfort Inn and Ramada are near by. Stay there instead.
It was available otherwise a complete "dump."
Dirty and in very poor repair. I will never stay there again nor will I recommend them.
NASTY FRIG AND STOPPED UP TUB! OTHER THAN THAT IT PROBALY WOULD HAVE BEEN OK. I SHOULD RECIEVE A FREE DAY TO COME BACK!!!
The house cleaning ladies were super nice.
It was so dirty.the pool was slimmy n had stuff growing in it.the construction people staying there were drunk n fighting n cursing all night.then there were needles out side in the morning where myself and my family walked.the ice machine didn't work.the shower rods were so rusted the shower head was so rusted you didn't get full pressure.
Price! Bed comfort. Staff is VERY polite and helpful.
I will never stay at a cheap motel again. I picked this place because it was literally the cheapest place available, but when I got there, I was offered drugs by some creep that took forever to go away. I had my hand on my Beretta in my pocket the whole time. It was scary because I was standing with my family. The overall shadyness of this place made me not let my wife and 6 month old daughter out of our room. I swear there were at least two drug deals that went down. (Lots of late night cars showing up with shady people doing shady things. ) 2 of the 3 showers I took were with luke warm water because the water heater was probably inadequate. Wifi was hit or miss in our room (215), which was not that far from the office. I only had one signal bar and that faded often. I wish the staff would go spend their time at a higher quality facility. Staff great. Building and creeps bad. Think twice.
The location was convenient as I was meeting a family member for a short visit.
The hotel room was in dire need of a make over. There were stains on the dresser, the area around the sink was coming up/loose, there were patches on the wall in the bedroom area and in the bathroom and cigarette burns on the curtains and on the bath tub in this NON SMOKING Room.
Bad wifi connection
The towels had hair in them and the comforters smelled lime piss. The coffee maker was rusted, the TV didn't work properly. There was no Internet access.....
We got there the non smoking room smelled like smoke our microwave looked like it had been set on fire and come to find out about a week later the hotel charged my card again and now I'm getting attitude and terrible customer service while trying to get my money refunded. Don't stay here
The Jacuzzi was nice. It worked quite well. The gentlemen in the laundry were exactly that, gentlemen. We couldn't find our room and asked them for assistance. They directed us right to our room and were extremely polite and pleasant.
The staff at the front desk were unfriendly. They were not mean, but their whole demeanor was "ho hum, another day at work, another customer." We were told our room was in the next building over. It was actually 3 buildings over. The air conditioner in our room leaked on the inside of the room near the door. When we walked into our room there was a mildew odor. I thought this was because of the Jacuzzi, but I'm sure it was caused from the a/c leaking. The website says there was a pullout couch in the room. When we got there, no couch. I understand that it wouldn't fit, but please be accurate. I don't like paying for something I don't get. The last thing is the price. It was cheaper than the other hotels in the area, but that is the only good thing I can say about it. For the price I expect a room without odor, clean floor, a/c that works properly, and a front desk who is welcoming and friendly.
