I spent a night here on my way home from visiting family. I selected this location because they are dog friendly, and I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the room was. It was very well kept, and very clean. I especially appreciated that they have a nice sized fenced in dog yard, with gated chute so the dogs can't... More

The staff was most welcoming in the charming lobby. Breakfast every morning and patio tables to enjoy the view. Lots of towels and room cleaned every day. Special thanks to the desk clerk (sorry I forgot her name) who sent me to her dentist when I had an emergency. Oh, and loved the popcorn machine!!!

My father, sister and 4 month old nephew stayed here passing through. It was big enough to be able to set up the pack and play. It was clean enough. I wouldn't mind staying here again. The breakfast wasn't bad either!

Great stay at Budge Lodging! We checked TripAdvisor for a place to stop for the night and found this gem. Erin the night clerk was very pleasant and accommodating, The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The Breakfast that was included was more than most continental style that you find and a great way to start the day.

Place was fantastic all around. We had a dog with us and the hotel has a nice little dog park on the property. They even gave us the room closest to the dog park as well. The room was very nice, updated and spectacularly clean. Didn't use the outside pool but it looked really nice. The desk staff was very... More

This was a very nice hotel. The rooms are large with nice tv's and the air works great. The room was very clean. There were a few stains on the carpet but that was no big deal. The beds are very comfortable and they offer military discounts. The shower worked great and the breakfast was as good as any hotel... More

This motel was great. It was clean and well kept. Loved the framed picture in the room blessing the visitor. Left me with a great feeling. When my daughter forgot her toothbrush the front desk had a name brand toothbrush - not the cheap throwaway ones hotels normally have. Recommend the stay.

It's not the Hilton but it's not priced like the Hilton either. It's clean could use updates. We were in a non smoking room that had several burn holes in the carpet. The pool was nice, clean, heated, a decent size. No towels that I could see. Breakfast was minimal we choose to go to Denny's. The beds were tiny... More

After driving for seven hours until after midnight, and stopping at several other hotel establishment, [which were dirty and reeked of smoke! ] this hotel was a sight for sore, tired eyes. My first thought upon entering the room is that felt just like I was spending the night at my grandma's house. Old style furniture, headboards, curtains, and quilts,... More

We have been staying at Budget Lodging for years. The friendly staff and lovely accommodations never disappoint! The room we stayed in this time had been recently redecorated. It had new flooring and an amazing recliner! The bed was very comfortable and the linens and pillows are so soft! We loved swimming in the pool - sparkling clean water and... More
