The place is now called "Budget Lodge." Nothing exciting. Not particularly cheap. Acceptable for a short stay. The hotel doesn't provide breakfast, but there's a good restaurant for breakfast across the street.

We enjoyed our stay! The rooms were large, comfortable and clean. There was secure parking, and the hotel was within walking distance to some restaurants. I would highly recommend this hotel. The staff was nice, and the area was very quiet.

Stayed there for the wonderful beach (Kalafia) and stylish town. Run down hotel, fusty and unfresh rooms, staff not speaking a word of English, stinks of marijuana all over, weed smoking parties during night in other rooms, if you check in after 22, you have to wait for the receptionist to wake up who then receive you sleepy and in...

Run down place run by a man who has no business being in the service industry! Not polite at all. Parking is in adjacent garage, if you can find a spot, and it's very tight. WiFi was not very reliable at all. Room was old and run down, in desperate need of an update. A/C not very efficient. Bathroom was... More

This is a budget hotel, not the Ritz Carlton, dont book here if you want that. The cheapest rate i could find.. The room was clean, staff was nice, no bugs, and beds comfy. All you need from a budget hotel. With the money you save go eat at an actual restaurant, dont expect all these extra features at a... More

Whilst we had hoped for something around the $70 mark, the ABV Budget Lodge was worth the bit extra. Rooms seemed quite modern/new. Beds very comfortable, bathroom spacious and unusually 4 towels (plus hand t/s). Makes sense in a 2xDouble, but in truth my experience has been to only be provided with 2 towels. Fridge, M/W and usual fixtures (though... More

It was pretty loud, I didn't get a ton of sleep because a car alarm was going off all night. Staff wasn't rude, but they weren't friendly either. Parking is a real problem. I had to park at the bar across the street which luckily was still closed when I checked out in the morning. Just ok.

It's a budget hotel for heaven's sake! What do people expect? We expected a clean room and a comfortable bed with friendly service and free parking and that is what we got. Who cares if it has a flat screen??? I don't understand how some people go all bonkers with their reviews of some places. We had a room at... More

This place is a joke. It is really called the budget in. Rooms are run down and the tubs have a sign that states if you use the tub as a tube you will be fined 250.00 for damages. We even had a hooker show up at our room right after check in. Real class. Be warned spend a little... More
