  : The service was really great and the room was nice. The bathroom looked newly remodeled. The only thing was that we found a woman’s shaving razor in the windowsill of the bathroom. Still a good bargain but makes you question what else was missed. Overall got what we payed for and it’s very close the boardwalk, beach, and many state parks.

  : No fuss at this hotel, staff was overly accommodating which is often not seen at high end resorts. I travel to SC for work every other week and have stayed at most “affordable” and expensive hotels in the area. Budget inn is leaps and bounds ahead of all similarly priced hotels, enough for me forfeit luxury and stay at a lower cost inn. My reasons are not not simply in staff; The mattress is adequate, rooms with kitchen areas, located to follow ocean if you head into town, the hotel is quiet in the mornings, etc. I highly recommend this establishment if you are looking for the diamond in the rough of cheap hotels:)
  : My only issue is with a small amount of sand on the floor even after room service. However, I used to be a local and I know that after vacuuming then sweeping hardwood floors, there is still sand.. I didn’t think it was worth mentioning to the staff
