Verified Reviews of Budget Host Inn

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Bad experience. Staff was nice. Rooms were dirty."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Our Softball team of 10 families arrived as a group for a tournament that weekend and everyone started checking in to their rooms. We were told the building we were being put into had been closed up all winter. The rooms smelled musty and a couple parents walked into the room and walked right back out and left the hotel to go check in somewhere else in town, due to the rooms being dirty. Others checked their rooms before checking in and paying and decided the rooms looked bearable for one night, that was until they pulled up the pillows and found human hair on the sheets. The bathrooms had spiderwebs that had not been cleaned out and the sinks were dirty as well. The pics posted online of this hotel are definitely old and are deceiving. We had several of our players get sick after staying here for one night. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. I will be looking for a refund.
