There is a white fungus below the ac unit about 2 feet wide on the floor. Last night a ghetto person knovked on my door, said... More

My friend and I took a trip to FL for spring break this year and stayed here. We found it to be very suitable for our 2-night stay in St. Petersburg. Very close to Treasure Island and beautiful beaches, and the accommodations came at a much better value. Initially we were given a smoking room after having requested a non-smoking... More

My husband and a friend of his (both having served with the Marines) went to watch a couple of ball games. His friend was outside of the room when 3 crazy people began to approach him yelling. They chased him into his room and remained outside attempting to break the door in for 30min. Once they left my husband and... More

I just stayed here for 5 nites. Large motel w/ cast iron 'New Orleans' type metal balconies. Its true that the old owner was awful, and the new owners are definitely an improvement. They seem to be a large Indian family who run the place and live on property, and for the most part they are friendly and helpful, and... More

In fact, room was incredibly clean (took all sheets off bed and mattress looked brand new), though simple. NO bedbugs whatsoever BTW.it's located just one... More

I spent 15 days in room 224 of the Budget Inn. The oddest thing about my stay is that their web site http://www.magnusonhotels.com/budget-inn-st-petersburg was giving me a price of over $400 per week but when I asked at the front desk I was given a rate of $210 per week. The web site is cleverly worded to make it appear... More

In "the 'berg" to visit family for 5 days. Attentive, friendly staff. Solid, basic accommodation. I got a clean, smoke free room with a desk, TV, mini-frige, microwave, chair, ottoman and wi-fi. Seems to be owned and operated by a family that cares. I was concerned by old reviews and called and talked with the desk. Glad I did. I... More

As for the rooms, they have all new furniture, big tv, new carpet, and beds. The staff was great and helped me get around the city.... More

I've never been to St. Petersburg before and was going to the Yankees game, so I wanted a place to stay that was close to the stadium. I got the number for this motel out of one of those discount coupon/tour guide booklets.. It was the closest place that I could see, so I called and made a reservation a... More
