Well, perhaps my stay is too fresh in my memory. Walk in your room and be prepared to be hit with a wall of noise...think track-side at the speedway. Then, you may notice light coming through the wall around the ancient air-conditioner set and the cringe-worthy thought that this gap might allow admittance of cold/warm air, bugs, and noise. After that […] you may notice the plunger next to the toilet, the ice bucket from the Comfort Inn (wait a minute aren't you in the Budget Inn), and the captioning on the TV because you can't hear the sound due to the 101 located 25 yards from the back window. I could go on about the missing shower fixture necessitating wrapping a towel around my hand to actually turn it on and even then, having either scalding hot or frigid showers. My next reservation will be...never. The Budget Inn truly lived up to its' name. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"not a good choice!"
The room was a mess! Door leading out the back of the room was unlocked. TV didn't work and no one answered when I called front desk for help. Thankfully my stay was short. This was one of the worst hotels I've ever stayed in!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall, the room was adequate. The room seemed clean and well attended to except for a lingering odor of cigarettes even though the room was supposed to be non-smoking. That would be my biggest complaint. Other family members were staying in the Ramada across the street. The Budget Inn was definitely cleaner.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was just a quick stop. Bad noisy location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Absolutely disgustingGenuine Hotels.com guest review
A non-smoking room had at least 3 cigarette burns on the bedspread and burn marks on the bathroom counter.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"nice stop over hotel"
Room was clean and large. Staff were friendly. Ice machine was broken.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Beds suck. Everytime u move. Sounds like popcorn .. Beds are very unconfortableGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"This place is a dump"
We have stayed in several Budget Inn motels. This site was far below our expectations for a Budget Inn which have been much nicer. I was initially charged $207 for this $50 motel room. After calling Hotel they refunding $50 so I ended up paying about $155 for this $50 roomGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenience to and from College and the City"
Convenience of location to the city and Cal Poly was the main thing of this HotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Budget hotel at budget prices"
basic hotel with some amenities. Wireless internet was slowGenuine Expedia guest review
"Avoid this place"
If you like being price-gouged in a run down facility (old toilets and trash outside your screenless bathroom window), this is your place. Otherwise - avoid at all cost. Oh, the drunkards yelling at each other until 10PM due to unresponsive management is another reason to avoid. The room was nicely upgraded several years ago and is now run-down and […] stained. This was the last room available in an unexpected stay-over in SLO. $264 for a miserable night. I had no choice but to stay here. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to freeway"
Too expensive for this room that needs many upgrades. Housekeepers were very nice and helpful .Genuine Expedia guest review
"It was not worth $180 a night, needs updated rooms"
We had a smoke break in the BBQ area. It was a sorry excuse as such. BBQ was rusted out. Fountain was not level and stuck out there as a last resort. Room was OK but was scared towels and sheets had not been washed.curtains barely hung up.Genuine Expedia guest review
The price was good. And you get what you pay for. Stains all over carpet. The front desk person was very rude at check in. Did not even give me any type of receipt at check in or check out. People that are living there are very sketchy. All in all 3/10. Would rather pay better money for another hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
older motel. noisy. not comfortable. not clean. stinky incense in lobby. would avoid in the future. Gives Budget Inn a bad rep. Cheap should mean basic but clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was not worth $213.00. Over priced.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not much of a breakfast"
They advertised, "breakfast included". Coffee, no decaf. Milk for cereal, all bread items, and OJ were empty by 7:00 and never refilled. So, unless you like Frosted Flakes with guava juice served in the 5' X 5' check in area, you better plan to eat elsewhere.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"okay price. clean."
nice staff and pleanty of parking.safe.good water pressure.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Only if there's no where else to stay."
This was a last minute trip, and everything else that was around the same price range was booked. Don't stay here unless there is no other choice. Bathroom is old and dirty. There was mold on the shower curtain and shower was stained. Walls were patched up everywhere. and I must say that this was the worst bed I have slept on. Any movement would jam […] a spring up you back. I knew this was going to be a bad place to stay, so i made sure i wasnt there long. Checked in at 1am and left at 8am.

"Moldy Shower, but the air worked, so..."
The room smelled nice and was large. They stuck us in the handicap accessible room for reasons I'm not sure of. The hotel we stayed in the night before didn't have a sufficient air conditioner so our expectations were pretty low. It's not very clean and I say this because of the incredibly dusty corners of the room and dead smashed bug on the window. […] Not to mention the showers. DISGUSTING. Mold all over the curtain, in the corners. I wore my shoes to shower, and I'm not a germaphobe or a clean freak, it was pretty gross. I did let them know about the shower on my way out, so hopefully I will be the last person to see such a sight. Otherwise, GREAT location (please go the the Bon Temps Creole cafe across the street, you won't be sorry!) Close to everything. The stay would have been great if it weren't for the cleanliness issue. Not too noisy, parking was good enough, people were friendly, oh and that heavenly humming air conditioner, yesss! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The shower and shower curtain looked and smelled of mold. Bed linens and towels appeared clean. Tv worked. Deadbolt to door did not work but it was fixed. Cereal was stale, and three packaged muffins were put out for the whole hotel and never replenished. Yes, they take dogs. Furniture was well worn, holes, rips gouges and all. Motel 8 is cleaner. Great […] breakfast place nextdoor. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This place sucked. The "lobby" smelled like a someone threw up. The room wasn't ready after check in time. The next morning the hose keepers banged on my door 2 hrs before checkout. All in all a horrendous experience.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is conveniently located just off the 101. It is a no frills kind of place but a decent place to crash and set out through the local wineries.Genuine Expedia guest review
"No WI-FI Service"
The location of the motel was good that it was right off the freeway. But, the Wi-Fi service was down during my stay, which is contrary to what was advertised. The room was clean, but the TV did not work well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Pros: The bed and linens were clean and comfortable. The bathtub/shower was really nice. Cons: Although the paint and carpets could use some attention, but nothing that bothered me. The walls and ceiling are quite thin and you can easily hear people walking around. Complimentary breakfast really isn't good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was skeptical about this hotel after reading all its reviews. The biggest problem is that it is close to the freeway and noisy. The breakfast was simply coffee, danish and cereal. Otherwise, the staff was nice and the beds were comfortable. It also offered free HBO, refrigerator and microwave. The room was spacious.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Budget - poor"
I would not recommend this hotel to even to my worst enemy!!! The service was poor. Room had a bag odor!! No wifi service! Bathroom curtain was stained!! Budget sucked all round!!! For the price of $180+..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
hotel is clean but noisy and beds are not comfortable. The bathroom tub is old and had rust stains from the area it bolted into the wall. The neighbors next to us were up till all hours of the night and you could hear doors slamming etc. The hotel manager did go and ask them to be quiet and it seemed to get better. it is located on the street where […] the 101 South entrance is so gets alot of car traffic.

"Third world accommodations - first world price..."
Where to start? Mold in the shower, broken sink, one hanger, persistent smell of disinfectant/cleaner. All for $200/night in beautiful downtown San Luis Obispbo. Disgusting.Genuine Expedia guest review
"close to CAL POLY"
Stayed at this location because of convenience to Cal Poly and no other hotels were available for our stay. I would NOT recommend facility, and would not rate it a two as indicated on HOTEL.com website!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"DONT STAY HERE!"
This hotel is very close to the freeway so it is very noisy. But the door has a huge gap the full length of the door on the latch side allowing all the noise to come right in! I could stand there and easily see out! By shifting my stance I could scan a good portion of the parking lot! The room is filthy. As soon as we entered we were hit with a strong […] musty smell. The shower curtain has mold on it. The water coming out of the faucet smells like sulfur and made me gag when brushing my teeth. I refused to stay another night even though I had to loose $200 because of their policy that wouldn't allow me an early check out from my reservation for 3 nights! At least they refunded my 2nd night. THIS WAS A NIGHTMARE! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I didn't expect much and I didn't get much. The shower curtain had mold and the handle for the tub came off in my hand. You can tell that they have tried to upgrade the furniture and decor, but it didn't make it worth the price. The complimentary breakfast is a small shelf with cereal and bread products in the tiny "lobby".Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I cannot believe this hotel gets away with charging what they do. I had a non-emoking room, but it smelled like smoke. There were even cigarette burns on the bathroom sink. There was no grout in the tile on the bathroom floor so I constantly scraped my feet. The blanket on the bed was soooo thin that i could see through it. The curtains were practically […] falling off the hooks. I would never stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not what it said it was"
If all you want to do is sleep, then this is the place to go. Not some place I'd go stay at again. I would must rather spend a little but more and stay at a better hotel. The so called "Continental Breakfast" is a stop-n-go breakfast! The cereal,juice and coffe are in dispensers and the milk is in a coffe canister. The so called muffins and Danishes […] are the one you would buy at any gas station. Even the lady that helped us laughed when she told us about breakfast. So like I said if all you want from this place is sleep, go for it! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
You know the old saying, you get what you pay for, well, you get even less than that with Budget Inn. For the accommodations they provide I don't see how they can charge more than $20 a night. If you happen to be hard up, so tired you're ready to sleep on a park bench, then this may be a option to consider, otherwise.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clean and quiet"
Everything was fine except the bed. Very old. I could feel springs not compfy.Genuine Expedia guest review
Rude hotel owner. Picture of the hotel is incorrect. Hotel clean but run down. "free wifi" doesn't work.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is nothing to right home about its just there. They need to update there TV to the new flat screen TV and they breakfast was small/ WAC and the mattress on the bed was not that soft.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Worst hotel experience of our lives."
We left the hotel at 4 AM following a sleepless night of drug dealing going on in the room nextdoor. We were scared beyond belief of what we heard and saw. Would never recommend this hotel with a manager willing to rent his rooms to this type of people.Genuine Expedia guest review
Not badGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"too expensive, and poorly located"
I was disappointed with the price and the look of the hotel. It was also further away from where I wanted to stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not for an extended stay"
This hotel can be "practical" because it is cheap and close to the freeway (maybe too close for light sleepers, but since I can sleep through a tornado, that wasn't an issue), but it should not be a consideration for an extended stay. It is not particularly comfortable, our sink was draining very very slowly... The price was right and we were merely […] passing through, so it was okay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was just okay. Last minute visit to SLO and it was the only affordable room I could find. The staff was very courteous and helpful. Parking is goodGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Spend and extra 20 and stay across the street"
Didnt even stay the night. Would never stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"must avoid hotel"
No night service at front desk!! Don't go there. Hotels.com should drop it from its listing. It gives Hotels.com bad user experience. Avoid this place at all cost.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
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
