As the name suggests, the Budget Inn offers basic, no-frills lodging. The rooms are not especially large, furniture is unimaginative, and the layout is old-school motel. But everything was spotlessly clean, the front-desk clerk was genuinely friendly, and the possibility to park right in front of your room is welcome when you have heavy bags. They are located between the...

In need of serious updating. Dirty, nasty, with spiderwebs in the windowsills and a gross shower curtain. Owner makes you pay upon check in. Where was the breakfast buffet that was supposed to there? Lobby/office is locked and you need to ring a doorbell and wait outside till the owner comes down. If it wasn't for the beautiful park this...

I was pleased with my stay as it met my needs perfectly. Low price, clean, spacious enough, and centrally located in Watkins Glen for my needs. No frills, for sure. No counter space in bathroom and there weren't plush towels or anything. But, our room was clean and comfortable. My room had a fridge, but not all rooms do, so...

Very outdated, terrible water pressure, not enough towels in the room for a couple and the AC was very old and loud. Owner was nice but a $125 a night was way too much. If it was like $75 for the night the rating may have been better. The only reason I did not give this place one star is...

Everything you want in a quick hotel to stay overnight for a wine trail event. Two beds sleep 4, a table w/2 chairs, fridge, microwave, and tv. Perfect for a place to sleep. Not fancy, but clean and comfortable.

We arrived in the evening of St Patrick's Day, checked in and was escorted to our room by the co-owner Bill. He made sure the heat was on and we knew how to use the tv remote and was very cordial. There was a microwave, refrigerator and regular toiletries in the room. Despite being a bit dark in the room,...

I cannot find any negative remark about this hotel. It is located on the main street of the town. Room size was okay and it was very clean. Bathroom was very good and included all amenities. There was a flat screen TV, a microwave and table and chairs. On top of all that the breakfast which is included was rich...

Well first of all, this was my first Budget Inn. I wasn't expecting much and got more. It's not luxurious by any means and is definitely over-priced for the real world. Maybe Watkins Glen isn't real world USA? $120+ for a 2 star motel just seems high. That said, it was clean, friendly and nicely set up with park in...

I called to make a reservation after seeing an internet rate of $100 and was told the rate was $119. When I mentioned this, the clerk said "then book it on the internet" and hung up on me. If this is the service when booking, I can't even imagine the service when there.
