Staying here with family this weekend, I was very nervous based on previous reviews. I wasn't expecting much, just hoping it was at least clean. I was so surprised to see how big and clean the rooms were. The staff, especially Danielle and Annelisese at the front desk, were all super sweet and very helpful. We never had a problem...

Had a great time at the Budget Inn! It was inexpensive and a great weekend get away. Pros: - The water park - you have to pay extra for the water park package, but it was a very nice well kept indoor water park. - The room was clean and the beds were comfortable, no complaints. - The breakfast was...

We took the kids and grandkids for a weekend. They had a fantastic time in the waterpark, though the adults thought the water was a bit chilly, but that didnt stop any of the kids. They loved it.

My husband and I chose this hotel at the last minute for an Anniversary weekend getaway. We arrived and checked in around 5pm. We went to our room, quickly dropped off our things and headed out for dinner. We returned from dinner and attempted to use our room key to open the outside door to get into the hotel...it didnt...

Basic accommodation but great value when you include the waterpark with your stay. Decent selection at the free breakfast buffet, waffles, eggs, sausage, cereals, yogurt, breads. Get there early though because it gets busy. Waterpark is basic but great for younger kids.

We are currently on our last night of a weekend stay at Budget Inn & Suites. This hotel has a lot going for it. The indoor water park is small, but offers plenty of fun for families. Within walking distance, you'll find a Dunkin Donuts, Wawa, McDonald's, and Five Guys Burgers. You're just a few blocks away from Dutch Wonderland...

This was our first visit to the hotel and to the waterpark. I was extremely impressed with the friendliness of the hotel staff as soon as we entered the front door. Danielle and Anneliese were very kind to my two children and helpful to me as a first time guest. We will definitely be coming back.

Thanks for reviewing your recent visit with us. When you make a reservation, at any hotel, any requests are simply that, a request, and can not be guaranteed.
