The room we were shown was not the room nor the conditions the picture shows. However we were transferred by the staff to the Saskatoon Hotel "The Inn on College" next door which is owned by the same people. Those facilities were excellent. So because I only saw one room I cannot comment on the other facilities in the Budget Lodge.
