"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.

"Stinky room"
The room smelled awful! Like a combination of old smoke & multiple odors. It appeared fairly clean & was adequate size. The Manager was very nice & friendly. The continental breakfast was minimal. I'm glad we got the Sunday rate. I woul never pay more for that room.

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.

Nice stay, everything you need for a budget motel! Only problem I had was the carpet seemed like it needed to be shampooed. But it's within walking distance to a lot of great places!

Stayed overnight for a business trip and the bed was hard, the AC in the room did not work. When I complained to the hotel clerk he stated to open the window it was not hot enough for the AC. I would not recommend anyone to stay here and I would certainly not stay here again.

"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.

"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.

The guy at the front desk was so rude, Expedia said check in time was at 1pm the front desk guy said come back at 3pm and your room MIGHT be ready, there was trash under the beds and it stunk in the rooms like smoke and feet, blankets had holes in them, it said they have breakfast which they do not and no pool, was not happy at all staying there...worst hotel experience ever!!

"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
