We recently spent the weekend here. Room was clean and bed was comfortable. The room had a slight musty odor to it but nothing I couldn't handle. The outside was a different story. Beer bottles were lying around outside our room and loud drunk neighbors hanging outside late at night made us feel a little unsafe. They were grilling out...

Stayed just one night but wish it was more. I had an awesome experience. The room was great with a very comfortable bed. The pool was very nice, and the staff including the owner was the absolute best. I would highly recommend the budgetel for a great experience.

My stay at the Budgetel has been wonderful. The facilities are very well maintained, the pool is refreshing and the staff is excellent and nothing but friendly. The location is perfect and staying here has made my transfer to Wilmington a great experience. I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone.

I will preface by saying I have stayed at plenty of cheap/low end hotels and this one might just take the cake. It was Independence Day weekend so I get the jacked up rate, but after taxes this should be closer to $80/night even on the holidays - not the $180/night they were charging. I cannot explain the stains that...

The staff was very friendly and accomadating. The location could not be beat, near beaches, restaurants and shopping. Nice room without breaking the bank. You can walk alot of places. Downtown Wilmington very close. I am a single women and I felt very safe.
