"low income apt type of motel maybe..."
The motel office opens 24 hours per sign at the entrance, but nothing there except counter. When we push ring button, a guy came over from inside to open lock. We got card key after showing driver license. We went to the room, then noticed some people actually 'live' here as weekly rental apt. The room is made to live as closet in the bath room is so large. Its cheap motel. It was relatively clean in the room but I dont want to go back there to stay over night.

"It will do for a one-night stayover."
I missed my 10:30 PM connecting flight home and had to stay overnight. Most hotels were sold out (or asking $299 for a Best Western). So I stayed at the Budget Motel. The owners were nice and arranged a cab for my early morning ride back to the airport. The place is old, but clean. Well worth saving $200+.

"Family Run Operation - For Better or Worse..."
This motel is very conveniently located about a mile from the Tamfram shopping plaza & 380. It is operated by a family and they were very, very nice. The challenge however, was that when I checked in the thermostat wasn't working. I brought it to the attention of the operators twice during my stay, but it was never corrected. The room then had no heat during my four day stay. On the plus side, it was by far the largest room that I've rented in over 20 trips to the SFO / SJC area. I would have easily given them a 4-5 if the heat would have been fixed. Fortunately, the weather was warmer and it never got to be too uncomfortable.

Reception could be friendly- a smile costs nothing. Fridge & Microwave, sofa & table really appreciated. Some cups & plates would have been a great help. we asked for a quiet room and it was except for airplanes which we expected close to airport. no attempt to make the outside area welcoming. Funny old buildings but we were comfortable, close to Mall & BART was good. Good value for the money.

"Very old and dirty"
I'm ok with older, outdated places but they have to both look and seem CLEAN and cared for. This place was gross--mildew on the walls and ceilings, lots of old dirt on walls and horizontal surfaces, dirty carpet, tub ceramic worn through so that it both looks dirty and can't really be cleaned, mystery smears on the walls. Wall and other repairs had been done haphazardly and not even made to blend in. Walls had a couple different colors of paint from patch jobs of some kind. The entire room had a weird food/cooking smell as if it had a kitchen in it, which it didn't. The refrigerator had been turned off and the door closed and so it had mildew in it and so we weren't interested in putting our food in there. On a positive side, the room was spacious and quiet (all cinderblock walls).

"disappointed"
At best this rating should be about 1 1/2 stars. Although the room was okay, the cleanliness of room was "good", the frig was unplugged and shut up tight, there was mold growing in it. I carry Clorox wipes and fabreeze spray, and was able to clean it so that we could use it. I did mention this to one of the house cleaning staff. (refrigerators need to be left open if unplugged. Parking is hazardous at best, and not really enough room to be really safe with the traffic right on El Camino Real. The staff was friendly I'm just glad I wasn't planning to stay there for more than a couple of nights. Also right in "Flight path" of SFO, your room echo from the planes over head. Although the location is convenient

"Cheap but Big Rooms, close to SFO airport"
The room was fairly cheap. I payed $75. It was worn down, but seemed to be clean. The room was very big though, bigger than I would ever expect from a 1-star or even 3-star maybe. I guess the room was about 50 square meters, which is quite big. Anyway, I enjoyed my stay there, but don't expect too much.

This was an overpriced budget motel for what it offered. It is extremely tired...carpets are dirty, walls were stained and showed mould spots. The bath had lost part of its surface and an amateurish attempt had been made to repair it. The worst motel I've stayed in.

"You get exactly what you pay for, if not more."
The Budget Hotel was actually pretty great. For $60 a night i was expecting a travesty of a hotel. It is not super nice, but everything is definitely acceptable. The room was large, both the a/c and heat worked, it had satellite tv, a large king size bed, a very large bathroom, microwave and mini fridge, was very clean and was in a great location. It is only 6 minutes from the airport and 5 minutes from the nearest BART station. The Budget Motel is not the nicest place you will ever stay, but for the price and location it is easy and very good place for the night.

"The worse hotel ever!"
Trust me, if we could've had another option to stay somewhere else we would had. Slept in our clothes on top of covers on the bed! Room had odor. Dirty walls through out the room. Shower curtain had mold on it! Rusted out shower and tub. Less than half roll toilet paper with no replacement rolls. Had wall unit for heater that 1) was suppose to be silver. It was almost completing black and beat in. 2) didn't work. With the walls being concrete the heater would of been nice. Will never go to that hotel nor would I recommend to anyone!

"Last Resort"
When I missed my flight I needed a room for the night. For the price paid, $233, it should have been higher quality. The door looked like someone had broken in and it was never repaired. I put the chair against the door because I was afraid someone would break in. The bathtub had been coated and was peeling, making me forego a bath.

"The name says it all..."
All the hotels in the area were booked so I didn't have much of an option by midnight or 1am, so I was relieved when I even FOUND this place... As soon as I got a look at it, though, my relief washed away and I thought 'Oh, it's gonna be one of THOSE nights...' The Indian receptionist (who seemed to be the matriarch of the family who runs the place) was obviously peeved with having to help me check in and any subsequent questions I had. She had the air of an annoyed aunt who's displeased with the mannerless offspring of one of her siblings and only refrains from yelling at you because you're not hers. She was the least 'GOOD' part of the stay. The room seemed like the accommodations for adult counselors at a summer camp. It was roomy enough, though, with an oddly large and slightly confusing bathroom area...

"Over-priced for what you get"
I just needed to take a break and get some sleep before continuing my long drive. The bed smelled clean. I should've brought ear plugs as jets fly over until about 3am. No microwave or fridge, and the office was locked at 730am so I don't know if they had coffee in "the lobby". I compare it to Alcatraz, plained white, not updated, but kind of clean. Over-priced, seriously, for what you get.

"Adequate and functional"
The "Budget Motel" was indeed what it claimed to be, a place to book an inexpensive motel room. Although it is not in San Francisco itself it was a brief walk to the BART station to take me there or to the airport when I departed. When I visit a city, I spend very little time in my hotel room so I don't want to pay for a lot of amenities. I don't need a pool, I don't need a gym, I don't need a bar. I do need a room with a lock on it and a clean bead and bathroom and Budget Motel provided that for a reasonable price.
