Pros: the room was clean and the staff was nice
Cons: A lot better breakfast-better beds-make so tv will come in-fix exhaust fan-get rid of bug spray smell
Location: Was said to be 12.2 miles away from our destination and it was an hour and a half away
Reservered room online and it said online it was one 12.2 miles from our destination turns out it was an hour and a half a way from our destination which happen to be grand mothers funeral. The bed was uncomfortable and smelt like bug spray through out and exhaust fan sounded like it was going to blow up. Read reviews before choosing hotel and it said that the breakfast was great-it was cold cereal and apple juice-not impressed

The Name Says it All

Posted Aug 19, 2014
Pros: Cleanliness, cost, proximity to places we needed to be.
Cons: The beds were uncomfortable and obviously needed to be replaced.
Location: See above.
This was our first time staying at the Family Budget Inn in Bethany, MO. We were in the area for family business and for my husband to officiate at a wedding. I checked Yelp, Trip Advisor and Expedia for reviews of the three motels in Bethany. The Family Budget Inn had the best reviews and was the most economically priced. I found it interesting that an independent family-run operation was able to get better reviews across the board than two national properties (Super 8 and Comfort Inn) but I was willing to give them a shot. The reviews were right. The place was well-located just off the interstate and next to a McDonald's, a gas station/convenience store, and also close to a Wal-Mart and several other eating establishments both chains and locally owned establishments. The outside of the motel was somewhat nondescript, but the parking area was clean and very well lighted. There was a covered entrance and an adequate reception area. The front desk clerk was pleasant and checked us in efficiently. Our room was immaculately clean. It was simply furnished with two queen beds, a table, two chairs, a set of low drawers on which the newer flat screen TV sat. The bathroom was also immaculately clean. There was a microwave but no refrigerator. My only complaint was that the beds were in need of replacement. Immediately! The housekeeping staff were friendly yet unobtrusive. We stayed two nights, and I would not hesitate to stay there again.

Nice and clean!

Posted Jun 15, 2014 on Hotels.com
Great room for the money, but the location was a little close to the highway for me because of traffic noise. The room was very clean and staff were really nice. The continental breakfast was bagels and cereal, so I wasn't really impressed. Overall I would recommend this hotel because it was clean and cheap.

pleasantly surprised

Posted Jun 14, 2014
Pros: We like the fact that it was a good price and it was nice and clean. We, also, liked the breakfast.
Location: There doesn't seem to be anything to do there, and it would be nice if there were other choices for dining.
We were very pleased with our stay. Great price. Nice and clean. Nice breakfast.

Nice for the price

I had no trouble with this hotel. It didn't have a lot of frills. It was a a nice room with air and a nice bathroom, but that was all. A single guy traveling across country would love this place.

decent overnight stay

Posted May 27, 2014 on Hotels.com
The staff was friendly, no real issues during my stay but I feel confident if there were they would be attended to. The room was about what you would expect. Nothing outstanding but fairly quiet. Bed was worn but comfortable. Halls reeked of cigarette smoke but the rooms were clean and smoke free. My only complaints were the crumbs on the sofa(just crumbs I brushed them off) and a left over bar of soap from the last guest in the shower. All in all a decent stay in a convienent location. I would stay there again if in the area.
