** Bottom Line: Yes, Budget Inn SLT is a good option for "most people", but maybe not "all" people. The rooms and amenities are more comfortable to me than Motel 6, but most of these lower cost motels could use a little paint and may have a few dings. Are you flexible and don't
need the best? If yes, you should be fine here. Solo travelers, business people and couples seem best suited for the lower cost motels in SLT. I have viewed and stayed in several low cost motels in SLT recently and have a short list of 3-5. Budget Inn is one. I have stayed here many times in 2013. It's consistent. The Good: Value, Location, Safety, Clean Rooms. Most abide by not smoking in the rooms. I have had to walk out of many motels including some that are neighbors. Good amenities: AC that works, Iron, On-Premise Washer/Dryer, Free WIFI, Micro/Fridge.** The Bad: Actually, not that bad, but people need to understand, because the margins are low, maintainence goes first to the rooms. The outside does need a little paint and their are a few dings, but the area and the rooms offset this!...I have met and spoke to the owners a few times and they seem interested in doing right and improving the property. They are often making improvements. I look for that. BTW: I believe the pool is in repair mode. No property is perfect and most properties have had bad guest at one time or another. Re: Pools and Kids - If your planning your very important once per year vacation with all your kids and the focal point is the pool - very few budget like Motels in SLT have what your probably looking for - you'll need to go with the more expensive resort like properties or ideally - use the lake which is literally right across the street. The tahoe queen is just 3 blocks down the road. Locally Within Walking Distance: Excellent coffee internet cafe, good Italian "teps" with great salad bar, indian, family mexican place w/great tacos, Burger place, CVS, Heidis breakfast, nice Safeway, Bank, Golf course, brew pub and other nice resorts across the street.
