    It's a dump. Should be condemned.

    I was afraid of that. I was amazed that my buddy was able to get rooms anywhere near Sparta early last week. Maybe I will volunteer to guard the truck.

    I wish I were joking but I'm not. I haven't been in it in over 25 years but back then it was a dump and I know of no remodeling. I'm not sure what to say other than that. Just being honest. I live in Sparta

    Matt, is the Sparta Motel the same as Budget Inn? I've seen some scary youtube vids on that place. Harv

    Drove by it 3 weeks ago. You do not want to stay there.

    No the Budget Inn is a whole different dump. I for the life of me do not understand how or why the city allows either to remain open. Sparta has Code Enforcement officers who are very strict. I would just think they wouldn't want those places to be a reflection of the city. I guess it just doesn't work that way.

    The only two things that could possibly improve the Sparta Motel would be a flamethrower and a bulldozer.Stayed there during the first grand in Sparta...NEVER AGAIN...KS-OKIE

    stokinpls,

    No, that is the other dump the Budget Inn. It would be a close race as to which is worse. Shame really.

    There is only one person on the face of the earth that deserves to stay at the Sparta Inn and that is Michelle Obama... Every damn vacation she takes forces more people in America to live in dumps like the Sparta Motel!

    As of this weekend, the Holiday Inn Express in Sparta still had rooms available. A bit pricey at $144/night but it sure beats the alternatives in town. Plus, the commercials say you become smarter when you stay there!

    Got yelled at with threating motions from people there (right it was the Budget Inn) when I tried to take a photo from the road. "NO PHOTOS."

    A brave soul posted a video here inside and out and a few years back and it was disgusting.

    Was so glad I booked elsewhere.
