I was pleasantly surprised with this jewel. Very well maintained, clean, nice landscaping and friendly staff. Just off the highway too. As I recall, not much in the way of restaurants close by. It's kind of off to itself. If only looking for a place to sleep for the night, I'd certainly reccomend this place. Breakfast is adequate but pretty light.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
the hotel was clean...bed comfortable...check-in was great. Only one problem, which was taken care. Stayed at hotel for 2 nights, but housekeeping did not clean room after first night. Front desk gave us clean supplies.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"It was close to the meramac caverns, and floating."
It was by far the best hotel in the area. Especially after driving around the couple of towns there. The swimming pool was great. The hotel staff were above average. Very friendly. Greeted everyone at breakfast and asked how their nights were.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Surprisingly great motel!"
We were very pleasantly surprised by this motel. For such a small town with nothing going on, the room was great. We were concerned that it would smell bad because smoking is allowed in some rooms, but it wasn't an issue at all. Definitely worth the higher price over the other option in St. Clair. Also, Front desk person was very nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Served it purpose however if photographs tells the true story this one is a lie (not as nice as it looks).Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for the money."
Better than my Super 8 and Motel 8 experiences. Polite staff, clean room.Genuine Expedia guest review
We had a nice evening and enjoyed the breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Family night stay"
Great stay for the price. The pool was small, but in good condition. They offered us a room in front of the pool and willingly changed it to one in a place with less noise. The room was clean, cool and in good condition. Breakfast was good. Would recommend this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very clean and accommodating."
Was very glad we picked this hotel! Very clean and everyone was very friendly!! Would stay again!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great deal, warm hospitality"
This place is definitely "budget lodging", but that name does not do it justice. I think they should change their name as the current name really belittles them. Budget Lodging is right off ot the highway and very convenient. The town of St. Clair does not have much to offer in the way of restaurants or things to do, but if you are looking for a nice […] clean, well-maintained convenient hotel I recommend staying here. All of the employees we encountered were very friendly and customer focused--you could tell they take pride in their work and their place. The rooms are homey and comfortable--no frills, but none were expected. We had a bathroom light issue and someone came to assess it immediately, worked with us on a plan that would meet our needs, and after fixing the problem left us a typed letter of explanation and thanks for our patience--truly top notch service! The continental breakfast was basic but adequate, the pool is well-maintained, as is the rest of the hotel and property. I was pleasantly surprised by Budget Lodging and recommend it to others who may be passing through the area. It's not far from Meramec Caverns and the nearby town of Washington, MO has some really great restaurants and views of the Missouri River. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful stay, quiet at night, need better WiFi"

The staff was extremely polite and attentive to any request . Breakfast was fair, the usual continental breakfast . The location wasn't too far from Six Flags (our purpose for the trip ). Would definitely stay again .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Proximity of interstate was close, yet room was quiet, very clean, felt very "homey,,," like visiting 'grandma's house." Great bed, good breakfast, easy to get through St Louis. Good place to stay and economical!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Very clean, older, privately owned motel. Pleasant sunset view from pool. Comfortable stop to spend the night on way to St. Louis.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A Step Back In Time"
Although this is an older motor- in style motel, it is very well kept and brings back memories of the 70's. The beds are comfortable, the staff is super friendly and the decor is fun. It is very clean and inviting. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
Everything was as promised. Manager did an outstanding job. All of my family was very happy with their rooms. Shower was hard to adjust the temp and flow. Could not open the shampoo when hands were wet. Would stay here again...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very accomodating and freindly. Locally owned, not a chain. Owner was working the desk when we arrived.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Right off the road and right price!"
Perfect for our purposes. My wife said the pillows and sheets and bed were among the best we have ever used in a Hotel. Thanks. Everything worked, location right off the expressway was excellent, price was right, met our needs totally. Would recommend this to everyone and if ever need a night on I44 again will definitely chose this hotel! Hotel staff […] exceptional. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"A sleeper of a Hotel"
For a hotel named Budget Lodging this is a big surpriseits very clean the tub and shower enclosure was brand new, the carpets were clean, bed linens chrisp and comforter was clean and not worn. With the exception of the lack of a small coffee maker it was a great bargain.Genuine Expedia guest review

"They know how to treat a guest."
I was at the hotel during an ice storm in the area. The lady at the front desk was very helpful. There is not a restaurant at the hotel. Due to the bad roads, the food delivery places in the local area was not running. Without asking I received a call from the front desk informing me of the one place that was delivering. It was very helpful. The people […] working there were very friendly, and went out of their way to make sure the hotel guests were taken care of, even during a very bad ice storm that made their jobs much more difficult. The poor guy trying to keep the walks clean did a great job. I would stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

[…] It's a great hotel and a very decent price. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"An Excellent Night's Stay on the Way to Arizona"
Although "Budget Lodging" sounds like a motel chain, it apparently is a single motel. What a shame! It is clearly an older motel but it shows what can be done when an owner cares and has pride in keeping his property in tiptop shape and in giving value and friendly service. It is testament to how the little guy can compete. Comfy beds, plenty of hot […] water, good heat on a snowy night, a friendly,accomodating desk clerk upon arrival...all added up to a great stay. There was free hot, fresh popcorn and coffee in the lobby too. I imagine the continental breakfast might not meet with some people's expectations but considering the room price, it was certainly adequate. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I have traveled frequently on business over the last 20 years as a service technician. From that view point, it was one of the most comfortable hotels I have stayed in. A coffee pot in the room would have made it perfect. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in or around the area.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Very near family for a huge "send off" party"
The accomodations were very clean and satisfactory. Not over the top in luxury. We appreciated the lower cost of rooms and the counter staff were all welcoming and helped us meet our accomodation needs. Some items were not provided that most hotels have (shampoo, soap, lotion). Next time we will be sure to take our own with us. They did provide a hair […] dryer.Donnaj Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent stay for its class"
Ever noticed how well things are and go when the people working their like what they are doing? From cleaning service to front desk day or night I felt welcome. That directly translate to the facility - even though it is a true Budget Motel. I highly recommend staying there and and I will stop by again should my travels take me along I-44 again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great midway stop hotel. Great view from upper west building. Friendly staff. I'll be back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Hotel fine but recommended restaurant bad."
Do not eat at Gibby's restaurant (recommended by the evening desk clerk.) My burger was well on its way to being beef jerky. The floor was dirty. Walls patched. Tables uncleared. Find another place to eat. Upon complaining the morning hotel desk clerk said we should have gone to the Lewis restaurant.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel for the $"
We chose this hotel because it was along our route to Meramec Caverns. It was one of the only hotels that didn't do a per person up charge or made up fees. Just the price of the hotel + standard tax. My only complaint would be the beds are not super comfortable and the breakfast was just ok. Pool was great, clean, and I appreciate that it was a family […] oriented hotel and there was not a lot of partying going on. The staff were all pleasant and would do there best to accommodate. For a family of four we spent under $80 and spent the night in a clean (but dated), safe room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not St. Louis"
The service was great, the bed was comfortable. The decor needs updating. The breakfast did not look that great.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Don't let the name fool you!!"
Please don't let the name Budget Lodging fool you into thinking this is just some cheap motel. The rooms are cleaner than some fancy hotels I've stayed in. The staff is so friendly and accommodating. The pool is clean is very well kept. They offer free popcorn and coffee 24/7. The breakfast is good. Biscuits and gravy, dry cereal, oatmeal, waffles, […] toast, bagels and juice or milk. This is a great place to stay, I would recommend it to anyone! They also welcome pets. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a great place to stop for the night on a long trip. Price was good and the place was very clean and well kept. The staff was friendly and helpful. I plan to make this my new halfway stop when I go to visit my son in Ohio.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very good hotel - especially for the very low rate. Clean and quiet, although don't get a room directly adjacent to the ice machine/vending room on the first floor. The door to that room slams shut with a very loud bang at least if you're in room # 36. Otherwise, I'd definitely stay there again. Desk clerk was very friendly and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"best value for area"
Staff was wonderful. Hotel very well maintained. Breakfast not the best- no Fresh Fruit- (canned fruit cocktail), No bar but fresh popdcorn every night! Convenient to Auguta and Herman, Good supermarket close by. Beds not bad at all . I was pleasantly surprised. Definitely would recommend and if I go to area agina will stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
