At about 9 p.m. I made the reservation on Kayak and called the Budget Inn to ask if it was okay that we'd be rolling in at about 10:30 p.m. because we were at a concert on Portland. The male working front desk said he'd stay up longer until we could check in. After driving to the wrong place, I called and said it'd be another 25 minutes or so and he was totally ok with it, so he was super nice. The staff was obviously super nice, called us at 11 a.m. to ask if we'd be staying another night because it was time to checkout (really polite there) and the check in and check out process went really fast. Overall, I wouldn't mind staying again because the price was reasonable given it being really last minute. Facility had some downs, cigarette burns in the sheets, the patio was kinda dirty and there was paint chipping in the rooms. Those things wern't prominent and I barely noticed. There were quitelling a few smoking tenants that were right by our room so there was quite a few cigarette butts around the patio area. Also, a homeless man was making himself a place to sleep undercover but he was pretty close to my car so I had to check midway through the night.
The night check in staff (a male) was very friendly and was very helpful. The bed was comfortable, microwave and refrigerator in the room was nice as well.. The burns in our bedspread and sheets as well as obvious cigarette burns in our non smoking room, and burn marks on almost every surface of the bathroom. The smell of stale smoke in the room, and allowing people to smoke on the nearby patio, which drifted into our closed room all night.
I liked the friendliness of the manager / owner who recommended a vegetarian restaurant for me when I told him I was a fellow vegetarian. (There is an Indian food place just down the block - walking distance.) Room was clean, affordable, and near major highway that allowed access to Portland with a short 20 minute drive. Air conditioner and fridge worked great. All bathroom utilities worked fine. I wouldn't call the place luxurious but it was just what we needed on our 3 day stay in the Portland area.
Staff were friendly. Close distance to freeway, food and stores. Wifi did not work for more than one device. shower head was very low on the wall. pillows and bed were not very comfortable. the A/C/heating unit was very loud. Room smelled musty. I would have rather paid an extra $10-20 a night to stay somewhere else.
The place was ok, however the only value is no pet fee. The walls were paper thin.
The price and the pet-friendliness I didn't feel safe parking my car People roamed the hallways at hours They was loitering that appeared to be drug and/or prostitution related in the parking lot Inadequate parking close to the rooms People making horrible noises until 2:00am Bad spiritual energy
Didn't spend a lot on a room here. It was a quick escape from family with my girlfriend. Ghetto people love to start yelling at 6pm and never let up all night
No lock on door or window. Weird attic hatch in ceiling, again no lock. I felt very unsafe.
