"Nice stay for the money you pay"
I thought the hotel was nice. Nothing fancy. And you can smell curry in the office, but it didn't bother me. Very friendly staff!!! Went out of their way to fix our cable for us!!!

"basic, budget motel"
not bad, whole place lost power one night so all guests were given rooms across the street for the night. rooms are very basic - heater didn't work well, fan in the bathroom was noisy. clean room, hard bed. no frills place. your not going to spend time in the room here, that's for sure, but it was safe and clean and best of all, cheap. exactly what I was looking for as I was relocating from out of state and needed a crash pad while I located an apartment

I stay at this hotel when I visit SLO. It is located walking distance to the center of downtown SLO and the staff are friendly. Great place for my road trips to SLO.

The office stunk of curry, the service was horrible and the people staying there were loud. They built an alcove in to make two rooms above the office, Don't stay in them! The hallway floor echos due to poor craftsmanship.

"Not a fan"
The hotel was very old and unkempt. Maintenance was never thought of there. Paint coming off the exterior walls. Did not have any service at all. No extra pillows. two towels for a room sleeping 4. the management was poor and the hotel stunk of Indian food. Poor continental breakfast. Would never stay there again.

"Don't do it!"
This was the most disgusting hotel/motel my husband and I have ever stayed in. Had we not been in town to visit our son in college and all othe hotels been booked I would have just left and lost the money. I didn't expect much going into it and even brought my own bedding, but this was worse than imagined.

"one time stay"
Noisy on first night...poorly sound proof. Tub, tv, other small things needed repair. Quartered muffins, cold cereal, milk and icky orange juice breakfast. Beds were comfortable but smelled slightly of bleach. Very accommodating for our dog. The reason why we stayed there.

"Close to downtown"
Rooms were clean, beds ok, furnishing pretty hodgepodge, walls were very thin you could hear everything which was aweful. It sounded like a brothel from 1am until dawn. They really need to secure the headboards. Very noisey due to traffic, no coffee pot or newer fixtures. Not worth the $170 a night, but had no choice there was,nothing available for 25 miles. Next time I would drive the extra miles to get some sleep.

"Low budget buy ok."
Looks low bugdet, felt low budget. Prior to booking I told myself, it's for 1 night and we were going to arrive late anyway. As long as there weren't any bugs I'd be fine.. we were fine. It wasn't terrible. I could hear everything. We all slept ok. And it was easy access, even walking distance to many places.

Budget in is an all around ok place to stay. It's good for a cheep place to stay, but you get what your are paying for. It say that breakfast is included but it is basically a muffin and cereal with lots av suger in it, nothing we thought was very appealing. Internet is ok as well, it's usable.

"Pleasantly Surprised"
From the ratings I was a bit concerned about our stay but I was pleasantly surprised! The room was quite large and beds comfortable. We had a microwave and mini frig in our room. It was quiet on a not to busy corner in town; the Ramada was across the street. It was easy to find. Breakfast was muffins and cereal, not to impressive.

It was a last minute stay, the room wasn't what the pictures looked like on the internet, but it was very decent for the price we paid. The location was great, it was right by the freeway, we didn't have to worry about getting lost, or driving to an unknown location. It was 10 min away from both Morro Bay and Pismo.

"OK for the money."
We arrived about 12:30 and the clerk said check in is at 3:00. I explained I needed to be somewhere at that time. He went ahead and gave me a room. My wife couldn't sleep on the hard bed so she slept on the over stuffed chair and ottoman. I can sleep almost anywhere when I'm tired.

"AWFUL: Rude staff, dirty room, broken shower."
At check in, the night clerk gave me 1 key and was put off I'd ask for a second. Our room had no lampshades. I called the front desk, "I have maintenance do tomorrow. Uh, sorry." We came back after dinner and found food from a prior guest in the fridge. No hot water in the shower, then the handle fell off. Under the bed was dusty with trash. In the morning, I went to the front office to tell them about the shower, but people were waiting with no staff was in sight. I waited then left. (The Continental breakfast was quartered muffins and Fruit Loops.) I soon called the motel to have the shower fixed and get lampshades. I tried to find out what would/could be done, but the day clerk was difficult to understand. "I ask maintenance, maybe today. Won't know till you come back room." At no point did she apologize for the inconvenience, or offer a solution. When I went back that night, I'd been locked out.The same night clerk said he could activate my key, but he wouldn't know if the shower was fixed because I hadn't told them anything. "You no like? LEAVE!" He refused refund my money, give his name, or contact a manager to help. Later that night he called me, yelling "The room is fine. You are a liar and a cheat. I knew when you told me about lamps." (Seriously!) I often chose cheap "adequate" motels. This is the first time without a clean room, working shower and pleasant staff. Once this Budget Inn has your money, you get what you get. Complain? Get locked out!

"Not the real slim shady."
Felt seedy. When we arrived there were a couple of "shady" looking guys drinking and smoking outside of their room. Cigarette butts in all the planters, like its never cleaned up. No receptacle for the butts. Sheets were clean. Proprietors nice. Not the greatest area, who knew. It served the purpose, just needed a place to rest our heads. I guess we got what we paid for.

"Great disappointment!!"
My husband and I wanted to get away for the weekend to escape the heat from the valley. Expedia booked our hotel at the Budget Inn. We were greatly disappointed with Expedia for recommending this horrible expensive place. I would not mind paying for over $200.00 a nite in a nice clean and quiet place not only that it was 15 minutes from the beach. I could have gotten one at Morro Bay at La Serena Inn for the same price and way much better than the Buget Inn at San Luis Obispo. The place was very much dated and dirty and beds and bedding were old, room had musty order and smelled like smoke although this was a nonsmoking room. For this reason I would not use Expedia for my future travel plans.

Don't do it. Just go to a Motel 6. Bathroom had mold. Room was REAL outdated. Furniture was old. TV was OLD. I was scared of bedbugs due to how the room looked so I slept with my clothes ON. Tried to take a bath the next morning and of course the water was tepid. The "breakfast" that they offered was just awful. Was not worth it AT ALL. The Ramada was across the street. Go stay there.
