The property is very outdated and old. The budget inn definitly looks better online. It was clean however it has roaches. The check in process was easy, however I had to wait 25 min to check out this morning due to no one being there and was at another property. The mini refridgerator didn't get cold at all in 12 hours and the walk in closet didn't have a hanging bar for clothes, the TV didn't have good reception so the picture kept cutting in and out. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.

I booked this place because the price was cheap. Don't be fooled by the pictures advertised on website! It's so old and moldy. The air quality was horrible like people smoked cigarettes for hundreds of years. Yellow stained around the toilet and cracked ancient sink. Everything was so old and dirty especially the bathroom floor and big black patched all around the corners. All fixtures are really ancients and dirty with marks on them. You really have to use force to be able to turn on the sink and bath water. Nobody wants to go pee or take a shower. We wanted to cancel the moment we walk in but the manager never returned our calls and travelocity was unable to get us a refund. It ruined my whole family vacation. I spent the whole evening and morning trying to call the given number. Since we were unable to contact the manager, we checked out immediately the next morning and moved to a better one next door to Disney Land. When booking online, we opt to pay when checking in, but our credit card statement shown that we were charge a week in advance. Never waste your money booking here because normal people don't even live in this condition! For $20 more, you can stay at a much higher quality room elsewhere.

Very old hotel, in old part of town. I didn’t feel safe. On day 2, there was an armed security guard and I slept better. No microwave wave, you have to go in the office to use it. No vending machines, but stores near by. Places to eat near by as well. Parking is tight but free. Cable channels were in Asian dialects, so I watched Fox News and sports all the time. It was quiet during the nights and most days.

Water leak & 5 hour check-in time delay

Pros: The reception workers & the fridge in the room.
Cons: Overall cleanliness and maintenance.
I may have been out of luck, there were many problem on this day. 1) Check-in time delay: I was told to come back in an hour because none of the rooms were ready when I got there at around 4 pm. 2) The water leak from the ceiling started at around 3 pm, and from there on, the sound of it woke me up several times. 3) The room smelled moldy. I saw one tiny cockroach. The hotel workers seemed pleasant, and a little fridge in the room is always helpful. With just a bit more maintenance, this place will be a good choice. It is unfortunate my last stay turned out to be the way it did.
