We discovered this "great place" a few years ago when there was a St. Louis Cardinals game in St. Louis and we could not stay at our usual place of lodging. This was truly an example of one door closing and another one opening. Now even though it is a bit longer drive from our home in Wisconsin Rapids, we...

The Budget Lodging is right off I-44. We have stayed here 4-5 times and each time the rooms are always clean. Rooms come with a fridge and a micro wave which is a plus. Popcorn when you check in is always ready along with coffee and both are free. A pool for the swimmers and breakfast is also ready by...

I couldn't be more pleased. I am so used to being turned away or treated poorly because I travel with my dogs. Hearing things like: no you can't stay, you have too many dogs, we have to charge extra for dogs, our pet rooms are on the 3rd floor etc. The staff was extremely polite, understood that show dogs are...

We stayed here while visiting my husband's parents, who live in St. Clair. Initially, I was turned off by the name of the hotel: any place named "budget" anything gives me pause. But this place is very nice. Even the lobby was beautiful and inviting. We stayed in one of the pricier suites (we used this as a substitute honeymoon...

What budget hotel has hardwood floors (well, at least a nice pretend wood floors), leather recliner, large, bright and clean bathroom and beautiful bouquet of flowers on the sink counter? The Budget Lodging does! We were so impressed with this hotel and what it offered for a variety of travelers. Although we don't travel with our dog, this place was...

We have stayed here 4 times now. Every time, it is consistent. The staff is wonderful, the owners are great. Food is consistent - biscuit and gravy, eggs, juice, bagels. Always good. Clean and in the process of refurbishing rooms. We stay here every time we show at Purina farms for dog shows. will not go anywhere else.
