The Budget Host Westgate Inn, located in London, received Budget Host’s “Award of Excellence” for outstanding quality assurance following its 2011 inspection.
For the past 11 years, the inn has received Budget Host’s top award of 4 Lanterns. Awards of Excellence are presented to those inns that receive high scores in the following categories: maintenance and cleanliness of guest rooms and public areas, general appearance of property and quality of staff.
The inspector said, “This is a very well maintained property with excellent housekeeping. The new Budget Host sign has improved the visibility of the property from the highway.” He added, “The owners do a wonderful job of maintaining and improving their property. Since the last inspection, the lobby has been renovated with new, attractive furniture. The exterior support pillars have been painted, and new refrigerators and microwaves have been installed in additional guest rooms.“
He concluded, “The owners and staff are dedicated to providing courteous, professional service to their guests.”
Budget Host International has 150 affiliated inns located in 37 states. The chain places a high priority on quality. Each inn is inspected annually by a professional, highly skilled inspector.
