I don't have much good to say about this place. The only thing that was decent was the pool except for the ice water that was inside it. It was clean though. The room was ok except for the batroom. That was terrible. The bathtub was the worst and you need to let the water run for about 5 minutes...

The rooms are old but relatively clean. My bed sheets had stains the electrical ducts can be seen in the bathroom. Staff is ok. The worse of all is the smell of cigarette smoke by the rooms. My room was supposed to be non smoking but based on the disgusting smell some people smoked in there and the smell the...

I really enjoyed my stay here with my friends. The staff were all friendly and good. Clean rooms and all we needed was there. We will surely go back to this hotel with family or friends. The food were good and yummy! Nothing to ask for! I enjoyed my stay. Fantastic!

I was on a business trip to Florida last week and was looking for a decent place to stay. That's where I came across the Budget Inn. Even though it is a low cost place, I got the opportunity to receive a wonderful service. I am impressed with their service and I highly recommend Budget Inn to anyone who is...

I've stayed in Budget Inns across the country. Some are great, others are... less so. Usually, they all have the standard necessities. Bed, shower, toilet, sink, door that locks. They aren't usually anything spectacular to look at, either. This one was pretty cool looking. The landscaping was nicely done, and the lighting was pleasant. Checking in, the clerk was cordial....

I was tired after visiting this area on business and had originally planned to leave that day but I was so tired that I decided to stay at this little, quaint and affordable hotel. It had all the elements I needed: a nice, relaxing pool and garden for unwinding and a safe, secure and clean room. The next day, I...

The grumpy old man at the front desk almost caused me to leave, wish I had. The ceramic tile floor was disgustingly dirty! My white socks were black in a few minutes. The WI FI worked poorly until 9:00 pm, after that it was impossible to connect until 7:00 am next day. When I pulled the sheets back there were...

Not a friendly check-in. We should have taken the clue to find other accommodations. Room had tile floor (very dirty) Basic TV, no cable. Didn't use shower but no hot water in sink. Nothing fancy. Was suppose to be non-smoking room but odor upon entering almost knocked me out. Did get a little better as soon as I turned on...

If you just need a room to crash then this will work. The wifi isn't the fastest. Water in shower was very hot. The pool was very clean. Our housekeeper Jr wasvery helpful during our week there. You might want to bring your own pillow if possible. It is located next to a firehouse.

“These are all basic rooms and even the first floor (of two) was a walk up a flight of stairs. We had requested a room with a sofa which we did not get but did not complain because we were happy with the room close to maid service and the ice machine.”
