"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.

"Needs work"
Graduation weekend so the hotel tripled the price, for two nights I paid just under $500. Very disappointed for that price, aN older motel right off the freeway exit, so noisy from the freeway. Room smelled of smoke. I can see that they are trying to clean it up. It was convenient by the college. Just disappointed in the price for the room.

"Okay"
Our room was okay. It was a bit worn. I found the staff very unfriendly and not very helpful. The continental breakfast (which was only muffins and cereal) didn't even open until 7:00. Since there is no coffee maker in the room, I would have liked to be able to get a cup of coffee earlier than 7:00. I did appreciate the location to the college. Although we got back to the motel at 10:30 and there was no parking in the lot, and we had to park on the street. I would go back in a pinch, but will try other places first.

"Yikes!"
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.

"Average Stay"
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.

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 room

"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.

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.

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.

"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.

"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!
