Huge crack in the door you could see outdoors through! Felt unsafe!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent for price paid!"
This was a very quaint, small motel, but well worth every penny. The rooms wereminmexcellent condition, the bed very comfortable and the hotel staff was very kind. I also enjoyed that the hotel partners with a local restaurant food delivery service, so after driving all day I was able to order from a nice (non chain) restaurant and have the food delivered […] to my room. Would stay here again no doubt. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"I was desperate."
I booked it last minute during a popular holiday weekend. It was the only place that had availability. It was WAY overpriced for that reason.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice room-unfriendly managersGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ok in a pinch"
The reservation was for the sat night before labor day and it was made very last min. The key card lock on our door was broken when we checked in, and the manager did try to fix it but it was to no avail. There were some things in the room that should have been cleaned just a little better, like the soap dish. The beds were not comfortable; we were […] tossing all night long.

"An unexpected surprise"
For a place named "Budget Inn" my expectations were not very high. The room however was far nicer than I expected. I only needed a place to sleep for the night so my bar was low but the room was nice, the beds were comfy, and the fridge kept things cold. The vaulted ceiling may have made it feel "nicer". The TV was a junky old CRT but I didn't come […] here to watch TV. Across the street is a fantastic Creole cafe which alone is reason enough to go to SLO. The night manager was very friendly too and we had a pleasant stay overall. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Cheap Clean place to stay!"
Hey! Its not the Ritz, but its way better then some of the low scores passed out by some prior guests. Its Safe, Clean and maintained fairly well. Safe area, clean room. Great for a day or two!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"better than i expected"
well, what do you expect if the name of hotel is already called "budget inn"? however, it is much nicer than i originally thought. it is clean and comfortable. after a long day drive, we slept pretty well. the pillow is not that comfortable, otherwise, it is worth the money.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good location to sights visited"

"Over-priced Horrible Hotel"
Smelly, dirty, noisy. WAY, WAY over-priced. Room key kept not working and staff acted incredulous when I told them. Possibly the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. Stay here ONLY as a last resort.Genuine Expedia guest review
Horrible, not recommended. Big led down. Reception in overheated bathroom sized office that includes breakfast w/o tables standing only. How many people fit in a small bathroom one might as oneself. Internet was extremely poor, dropping out, slow etc. Rooms smelled. But the good thing was that there was warm running water and the beds were fine. Oh […] yes very noise as there is no sound insulation. So bring ear plugs. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was fine but extremely loud right by freeway & also no central a/c or heat so cold in eve &wall air thing is so loud !!! other then that it's fineGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Better than expected"
I did not expect much, but was I was suprised. The room was clean and well kept, the beds were comfortable. The tv could use an update but the WiFi worked better than most big hotels. For a Budget Inn it was really good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"I stayed there out of necessity"
I stayed there out of necessity for a room. To my surprise I could not find a room at any other place.Genuine Expedia guest review
Carpets stained, would not walk barefoot. Loose floor tiles in bathroom. Light switches were dirty. Door closed but just barely. No safety chain. Walls are paper thin. They claim to have wifi, but it wouldnt work. On the bright side the bed was comfy, and everything worked.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Cheap and convenient"
It is near 101 freeway. Quite convenient, and relatively cheaper comparing to the hotels nearby. Good for travelers.Genuine Expedia guest review
Budget inn or formerly called roadway inn.. yelp roadway inn. horrible reviews. i couldn't find it on yelp before. anyways, reserved a king bed received 2 queens. The main problem is that the lady in the front didn't even let us know. Also check in is at 1 and they are cleaning the room at 3.... AND THEY HAD JUST STARTED. so i went back in search of […] a king. SHE does not say sorry. she said oh what's the problem with that? ... Refused to see why having 2 beds between my girlfriend and i is pointless. i ask if i can call.the. manager and she tells me he is out of town. Wow. then i ask her why i can reserve a room that was unavailable... she tries to dodge the question but admits she had not updated online information. so frustrated, i went back to the room and she calls me back into the office and asks me I've used the room, and. my gf was showering so yes.. she smiles and tells me i have to keep the room now.. hunh? She called me into the office and tried to blame me then about how its my fault i used the room. please save yourself the trouble. Also this review was from my phone and i never leave reviews.. except i felt compelled to warn people about. horrible rude service. also you guys might get a twin.. who knows with them Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was ok. The property could use some updating and a little more care but overall it was a room. Good location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Well you get what you pay for. nothing fancy, simple accomodations. The good: location, breakfast provided. the bad: mattress and pillows were uncomfortable. Toilet seat had urine on it. Thin walls.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was nicely decorated, had a refridgerator, microwave, and television (standard amenities). The bathroom was clean too. We spent minimal time in the hotel due to our busy schedule, but it did the job. It would have been nice if the A/C had been turned on prior to our arrival (100 degress plus for the day). The bathroom door also had a sharp […] threshold and the screws for the threshold were sticking out a bit Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Needed lots of upgrades and noisy neighbors!"
We made the mistake of heading to the beach on a Friday and not booking ahead. After calling at least 8 hotels in the Pismo area, I found this one on Expedia and had to drive to San Luis Obispo. Well the hotel itself looks a little out-dated. There was a weird smell in the front office. The staff was nice. The room itself was clean but I quickly saw […] some issues. The shower facet handle fell off, the tempered glass windows that were both in the sink area and shower area had no curtains so I felt like any stranger could peer in, there was a cigar burn on one of the sheets, the doors needed to be sealed because we could see light coming thru all tge edges and the worst part was the unpleasant noises coming from the room above us. Making them a little more sound proof would have been a bigger priority! And the complimentary breakfast came from the odd smelling front office with a cereal dispenser. Me and my family will never go anywhere without booking a hotel first! For the price we paid, they should have the money to upgrade with no problem! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good in a Pinch"
This hotel was conveniently located from the freeway and restaurants. It's not much to look at and the staff isn't falling all over themselves to provide service, but it was a decent place to stay with a TV, ice machine, etc. I did think it was pretty funny that the clothes hangers couldn't be removed from the closet area and there wasn't an alarm clock. […] It was a dive, but pretty good in a pinch. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Baseball Field"
I think that this hotel was way over priced for what you get. $200 is excessive for this small older hotel! Although the rooms and grounds were clean still overpriced!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel next to the 101"
The room smelled bad i Will not go back for 288 a nightGenuine Expedia guest review
"Loud, old and dirty"
Room smelled like someone smoked in it, even though no smoking is allowed in California. Window was broken and did not shut all the way. Bug screen was ripped. Doors slammed very loud, waking us up every time someone left their hotel room. Walls paper thin, woke up every time someone took a shower. The only real reason anyone should stay here would […] be that everything else was booked. Paid premium for this room due to CalPoly graduation weekend. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Center of town. Walk to restaurants"
Easy in and out. High rates. Good Bed. Cheap facilities.Genuine Expedia guest review
We had very disappointing experiences with this hotel. The bath tub is very dirty and clogged. We could not use it at all.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good for the price"
Good room space, clean good for whats paid .when traveling and not knowing can be stressful, Expedia agents always like to help you no matter the situation .Genuine Expedia guest review
Find another place that will give you better service, not be so rude and give you better customer service. If possible and you don't mind spending a little extra, you should definitely look somewhere else.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perk: Close to Cal Poly"
The location of the hotel to our destination was excellent. The overall condition of the room was poor. The walls, fixtures, bathroom was worn and obvious repairs were very noticeable. Even though this was a "No-Smoking" room, it still had the smell of stale cigarettes in the carpet and bedding. Breakfast area is extremely small and set up for guests […] to simply grab a bowl of cereal, packaged roll, or orange juice. Not at all created for dining in. There were several lovely places in the surrounding area for dining. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very disappointing. Not a good value at even half of the price I paid. This is not a 2 star hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ok choice but better is available nearby."
Not expensive but def no frills. No wifi. People walking on floor above me were loud. No sound proofing.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not bad for a night"
The place wasn't bad for one night. The room was actually nice with the accent colored wall and matching sheets. The outlet near the bathroom sink in our room didn't work so we couldn't use the provided blow drier.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We spent three days at the hotel, the manager's attention was so rude, we were 6 people, pay for 6, as you can see in the reservation and they were given 4 towels per day, and when we asked for the missing ones, we had to go to the reception to get them. Breakfast was minimal. The bathrooms taps were loose, so they fall them all the time. In conclusion, […] was a bad service, so we are unhappy. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Batroom cleanliness and repairs a must"
Bathroom is dingy, broken tiles fixed with silicone sealer. Bathtub beaten up and chipped, looks not very well cleaned. 1/2" gap all around the room entry door. Breakfast is mentioned as one of amenities. How? the room marked 'lobby' is 5 feet by 5 feet, without a single chair serves also as a check-in/check-out (reception?) area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Near downtown SLO, and easy access to freeway"
New Owners are trying to improve hotel, interior has been updated, and is clean. Hotel room doors need replaced badly. There was a gap that you could see through to the outside. Glad it was warm outside.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
For the price it was exactly what I needed - walking distance town, close to freeway, clean place to sleep & shower.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Over priced for what you get"
Upon entering the office, we were immediately hit with a horrible smell and there was no ventilation in there what so ever. The person at the counter was nice enough, but was in no hurry, and we couldn't breathe. The room was decent upon entering, but we quickly noticed the cleanliness was lacking. After sitting in the upholstered chair and a cloud […] of dust quickly rose. The room smelled of smoke and we were told all rooms were non-smoking. There was dust and hair in the corners of the restroom and carpeted flooring. The wifi did not work, as we were told it did. The beds were actually not bad. Sheets and pillows were clean. There was a continental breakfast that we did not partake of. It was back in the office which look unsanitary so we went elsewhere to get breakfast. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Better than expected"
After reading other reviews of this hotel, I wasn't expecting much for our last-minute reservation, but was pleasantly surprised to find a clean room with new decor. The room included a microwave, fridge, coffee maker, and hair dryer. We extended our stay a second night to enjoy the area for an extra day. The service was great. No complaints at all […] .

This hotel was disgusting!! We only stayed there because everything else in that price range was booked solid. It wouldn't take much to fix up the place to make it pleasant. It took 20 minutes just to check in AFTER waiting for my turn in line.Ince we got inside the toilet didnt work but rather than depending on hotel staff, my husband fixed it.I will […] NEVER stay here again! It's barely a step up from camping out! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
A very dated motel, though comfortable beds and fairly clean. It served the purpose needed though for the price I was expecting a bit more. We had some maintenance issue with our room that were disappointing. It was easy to find right off the 101.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, but that's it."
The room seemed clean and was easy to get to. It's also across the street from a great restaurant. There was a huge hole in the ceiling in the bathroom. Also, when we tried to open the curtains, they fell because they we not even bolted together. The front desk lady did not seem very welcoming and never even cracked a smile or said hello.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great if you're passing through"
We stayed one night since we were just passing through. It is conveniently located next to highway 1. Ro pok ms were a litlle noisy but for one night it's ok.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Low cost without skipping the quality"
I booked this hotel somewhat last minute and was pleased to find my choosing one of the least expensive options did not mean that I was trapped in a slummy hotel room. Quite the contrary! The accommodations are modest but quaint, the room was larger than I expected and spotless. I was very pleased.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"We will never book this hotel again!!!!!!"
Budget Inn at San Luis Obispo, CA is the worst hotel I have ever booked through Expedia. I was greeted by a boy who told me the manager would be out in a minute. After a short wait, we had a woman come out who spoke and understood limited English. We called the office to complain about water on the floor. The boy answered the phone and "took a message." […] When in the office the next time we told her about the water in the bathroom. She had not yet been told. She asked us to go back to the room and she would come in a little bit to check it out. When she came, we noticed a huge water blister (18 inches in length and 9inches down) had formed in the ceiling above the bathroom. I tried twice to suggest that she should go upstairs to see if there was water running. She told us that room was empty and she didn't know what was wrong. To the best of our knowledge she never checked. She asked if we wanted to stay in the room or move to another room. We told her that we wanted another room. The next room (which was non-smoking) smelled of smoke and had a hole burned in the bedcover. We immediately went to notify her. She told us we couldn't smoke in the room. We told her we hadn't but someone had. She asked if we could just stay in the room. We finally agreed that we could air it out but did not want to be charged for smoking. We had to go back to the office two more times to get information for the internet which worked poorly. Breakfast was very minimal with no place to sit & eat. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Inexpensive, Safe, Clean, walking distance..."
This is a no-frills place, which is great if you just want to use your room for TV and sleeping. The room and beds and bathroom were all very clean, there were windows that opened and the AC worked. There was a very small free breakfast available (cereal and juice) but it's a short walk or even shorter drive to downtown San Luis Obispo for better dining […] options. We walked both ways, including after dark, and felt perfectly safe. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"It is a dunp"
Found clothing and beer bottles under the bed. The entry door was not sealed well. No TV remote. Creaky floors and no apparent isulation because noise from other rooms was very evident. The bathroom amentaties and linens were the cheapest posible. The grounds were littered with trash.Genuine Expedia guest review
We were surprised how nice it was inside the first night. But were disappointed when we came back to the room the 2nd night because they never came in to clean the room, make the beds or give us clean towels. It was exactly the same as we had left it. Continental breakfast just consisted of cereal and some pastries. But for the price, it was nice but […] would have been better to come back to a clean room after being at the beach all day.
