This was by far the grossest motel I have ever seen. If you are strong enough to make it past the trash ridden parking lot and stairwell (that stunk) and get to your room I applaud you. This place was disgusting! It smelled, there were holes in the walls which someone did a sh**ty job trying to putty over, but...

Is it worth saving 20-40$ a night to be kept awake by the crack heads(No-joke) outside your door until they pass out or the police take them away? At least you can see your car outside your window. Thank goodness you've got auto insurance. Never stayed in a worse hole in my life! At $79.99 per night, this is the...

Budget Inn, Pinellas Park is horrific and dangerous. People getting high, drinking, and yelling outside of the rooms. The rooms dirty and smelly. Drapes falling off the curtain rods. Even the TV didn't work. We had gone through Hotwire and ended up with a room there. We didn't stay even one night and were kindly given a refund from Hotwire...

The worst hotel that I've ever seen. I changed 3 rooms, everyone was awful, dirty with cockroaches and unchanged sheets. The place should be burned to the ground. Everything was dirty, the walls, the floor, furniture, bathtop, toilet, sheets. Even window curtains were covered in huge black stains. It's unhealthy, disgusting place with awful rooms and service. I wouldnt stay...

One must realize that this is not a Four Seasons Hotel, but I think the staff/mgmt do a wonderful job, which makes all the difference in the world.

The staff here are really nice and work with you when you are a regular and can't pay all up front. They have free breakfast, free wi-fi and a pool that is very refreshing and clean. The non-smoking rooms are clean, the smoking rooms not so much.
