Continental Breakfast was a wrapped danish and coffee in a styrofoam cups, cold cereal or instant oatmeal. This hotel should not be posted as 31/2 stars. You could...

3 1/2 stars!? No way!!! They must hire someone to give them great reviews because this room was horrible! The tv got very little reception. When I brought it to the attention of the front desk people I was shown a torn piece of paper taped to the front desk that had a list of stations. We were only able...

This is the worst hotel I have ever been too. There were roaches in my bed and all over the room. It is not worth it, the customer service is terrible. I went to talk to the front desk to solve the situation. The lady gave me the run around and refused to give any help. I came back the...

We will never stay at a Budget in, or any hotel that is rated 2 Stars, just because of the experience we had with the Budget Inn on Mcdowell Rd. Phoenix. Cleanliness, Staff, Bugs, much more. Didn't even stay after our experience the first night with the hotel itself and the staff. The pictures on the website and online are...

The staff was very nice and efficient. Check in/out was a breeze. The pool was clean. The spa wasn't hot, but it was nice. The room was clean. I would recommend this facility to any who want a clean, nice, safe place and not break the bank.

This place is horrible! There is prostitution and drug trafficking, the rooms are full of questionable stains on the carpet, walls, furniture and everywhere. There is cigarette burns on everything, the doors look like police have busted in with force and the owner has not bothered to fix the locks! I felt disgusted and itchy and asked for a refund...
