A westside hotel placed along the Papago Freeway, Phoenix Budget Inn is a casual 2-star stay known for its unique views of the desert lands as well as expected perks at its core. Offering free breakfast, complimentary Wi-Fi, and coveted quietude that can only be found in the outskirts, the motor hotel is a great way for a quickie vacation. Whether you’re passing through I-10 on a road trip or staying away from downtown’s noise on business, it’s easy to find a balance between the good, the bad, and the ugly, even more if you’ve got your own private ride or shuttle to get through town.
Look forward to natural landscapes by taking a trip to South Mountain Park as soon as you wake up, getting enough energy to climb with the free grub downstairs, afterward taking advantage of where to get lunch. For something close to your stay, try a slew of Mexican eateries around your block including El Guero Canelo on McDowell and Filiberto’s Mexican on 51st. End the day with a sunset as memorable as it is vibrant, either through the lens of countless downtown high-rises ranging like the Gateway Towers or the nearby simplicity of Desert Park West, home to lakeside views and sports fields perfect for spending the day under the sun.
