Our Hotel Planner Expert Reviews of Budget Lodge

Our expert hotel planners periodically visit and review the hotels we represent in person.
"Budget Accommodations"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
This hotel is a good fit for a budget conscious traveler or work crew. Guests should have realistic expectations based on the price point for this property, and the location. The rooms are basic, but clean. The front desk staff is very courteous. There is a pool which looks like it could be very enjoyable. There is a Waffle House in the parking lot and it has easy access to I-10. The new management is working hard to improve the hotel.

"Bad management"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
I booked 20 rooms for my family vacation. The manager sold all my rooms and never called to let me know. Very bad customer service. Will never call them again.
