Budget Inn
Ranked #27 of 66 Hotels in Flagstaff
Reviewed 2 January 2012

We were traveling with an infant to visit Grand Canyon and Page, and decided to make a detour to Flagstaff. Booked a room with Kind size bed through hotels.com

Room Locations
=============
Upon arrival, we found out that rooms equipped with King size bed are located on second floor. So we went for the ground floor for ease of access.
With 2 queen size beds in the room, there is not much walking space in the room.
Furniture appeared a little tired, but in line with the star rating of the motel.
The little one likes to crawl, but we were concerned with the cleanliness of the carpet and the many electrical cables on the floor.
Our room was equipped with a microwave and a fridge, which came in handy
Fridge wasn't working when we arrived. It was only fixed after a call to the front desk. He was about to relocate us if the fridge did not work after another 30 minutes. We were told it was in a defrosting cycle.

Bath Room
=========
Clean clean clean =)
Spacious counter space for the sink
Tile floor got quite cold in the winter time (we traveled around Christmas time)
Vent fan was fairly loud, but functioning
Hair dryer functioning

Other Amenities
=============
Good Wi-Fi speed and converage
No breakfast. However, instant coffee is available at reception any time. We were told fresh coffee will be made in the morning
The location is closed to restaurants, stores, gas station and major roads

Conclusion
=========
Excellent value for $60, all in inclusive
It's a basic no frill place for a good night sleep

Room Tip: Keep in mind that rooms with King size bed are on second floor, which mean climbing the stairs with...

We recently stayed at Budget Inn just for a night. When we take overnight trips we usually stay at lower end hotels, so we didnt have too high of expectations. Lets Begin: We entered our room and it had a different kind of smell but we stayed, we asked for extra towels, and the person responded ' whats wrong with the ones you have now?' Customer Service 101. Checkout is PROMPTLY 11AM or else. We were 5mins late and had 2 individuals come by and 1 standing in our room & telling us to get out and they have been calling the room with no answer. We told him that the phone never rang. He stood there with his cell phone and when it didnt ring, he just said I will get it fixed. Poor Customer Service!!!

We were passing through Flagstaff on our way to and from Las Vegas and decided to stay at the Budget Inn because the price was such a deal. The Budget Inn is a motor lodge-type property where you access your room from the outside. We stayed in a King room on the ground floor. The room was very spacious and the furnishings looked fairly new. The room was extremely clean--you can tell housekeeping does a very thorough job. We even saw staff sweeping the parking lot and outside areas in the morning. The bed was comfortable and there was hardly any noise from the outside. It seems that the rooms are separated with cinder-block walls so you couldn't hear your neighbors either. The room is heated and cooled with a unit by the window. When we checked in the room was an ice-box but it quickly heated up since the heater works very well. The owners are very nice and accomodating. It seems to be a family-owned motel. This is no-frills lodging, but if you want a clean, quiet, comfortable room this is a good place to stay. I would definitely stay here again when we're passing through Flagstaff.

After a long day on the road, we checked into the Budget Inn. The room was immaculately clean, and comfortable. The downside is that the floor was cold because it is winter, and the heater is a wall heater at the front of the room. The bathroom floor is ceramic tile, and was very cold to walk on.

Room Tip: The motel does not provide a complementary breakfast, nor do the rooms have a coffee maker and suppl...

Stayed here for 2 nights as part of our round trip from Vegas to see Sedona & The Grand Canyon. After a luxury stay in Las Vegas, and expecting a shock we were pleasantly surprised how good The Budget Inn was. Clean, comfortable bed, decent shower & a decent size TV. Good location close to loads of eateries. Only 100 meters walk to the Galaxy Diner which was excellent. Really enjoyed visiting Flagstaff, & would have to say the Budget Inn was one of the best value for money stays we had on our 6 weeks of touring the US.

We stayed here after a long day travelling including the grand canyon, so it was good to get into a nice, comfortable room.

The staff are extremely friendly here, check in was super quick, and the room itself was great. Clean, comfy beds and fast internet, as well as a fridge and microwave.

High recommend this hotel. For the price, it's fantastic !

The Budget Inn was rated high on tripadvisor so we decided to book this hotel for our visit to Flagstaff. The room was clean and updated. I would have expected to pay around $75 for a room in this condition. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Although it doesn't have a pool or breakfast, I'm more interested in a clean room. Our daughter is attending college at NAU and we plan on booking this hotel for many more visits. With a rate of $45 why not?
