I've been traveling back and forth from this area for over five years. The place I used to stay changed owners and turned into a flop house for transients. I ran across Budget Lodge and initially booked because of the location and the price. I was 100% satisfied with everything. This IS NOT a glamorous HOTEL - it's a safe, SUPER, SUPER CLEAN, basic motel right across the street from the beach. It's a family run/owed business and it shows! They take pride in what they have - working constantly around the property - cleaning, gardening, etc. My new vacation destination!
