I too live locally and my husband and i got annoyed with traffic on the 17 and thought we would stop and a hotel and just have a good Friday night. We were both in very good moods when we walked into the hotel. However that was short lived, - i walk into the building and look to my left...

This place is a joke and The Budget Lodge should be closed down. I needed a place for my son for a week and the sign says 125.00 for a week but I paid 165.00 plus 35.00 deposit and that didn't include the remote control for the T.V. or phone!!! As we was checking in I was asking questions and...

Overall I'm completely stunned that a place like this is allowed to do any business. Filthy is putting it lightly. My boyfriend and I live locally, but we decided to get away from the house for a night. We stopped at this hotel because the sign said $35. It was $44. Then if we wanted a remote it was $1.25....

This place is more like a flop house than a motel. Their list of rules is more than a page long. Here is one of my favorites, If you swim after pool closing time you will be asked to LEAVE with no money refunded. They charge extra for the TV Remote Control. The draperies had holes in them and anyone...

Whoever said "you get what you pay for" is spot on about the Budget Lodge. I stayed here for a stretch in Feb-Mar. of '08. The cable TV was sometimes snowy. There were 2 Fridays in a row where it went out all day. The motel is an older facility but in pretty good shape with the exception of the...

Afetr reading reveiws from TripAdvisor I wanted to see how bad this place really was. The place is OLD so I did not expect a 4 star resort. The clerk was feindly and I was impressed with the check in process; I was asked questions that I never get asked at other hotels so based on what I answered is...

Manager and majority of other staff have no customer service skills. Do not stay here if you can help it. Better to pay the extra money for a better room and more pleasant stay. They nickel and dime you anyway because you have to pay for anything in addition ie., phone(incoming/outgoing), ice,.. Most of the rooms are either occupied by...

Cable did't work, when I asked to get it fixed the gentelmen were rude and had horrible customer service, but said they would call the maitance man so I went back to my room. After waiting an hour I ventured back down to the gentelmen that had been so rude before to ask where the maintiance man was (keep in...

For $45.00 a night, obviously not the Ritz but a good deal. Cable and A/C (of course there's A/C, it's PHOENIX!)

“Rooms facing the pool (that nobody uses)... #208 has 2 double beds, #210 (where I stay, has one). Pillows are bad (owner should buy new ones!), but I requested 2 extra ones and got them immediately.”
