There are $20 per night rooms for those of us on a TIGHT budget, but I was skeptical about cleanliness given numerous stories about bed bugs and unclean rooms at hotels due to the recession. At the $60 per night price point , the recently renovated Rosen Inn is a good value. Conveniently located on I-Drive, not far from the Orange County Convention Center (30 min walk), it's easy to get around on the I Ride Trolley ($1.25), buses (I recommend the city buses ($2) if you're from a big city like Chicago, NY, etc.) and taxis if you want to spend the extra money.
The room was clean with crisp white sheets for easy inspection, adequate 2 piece bathroom with the sink outside the bathroom, good heat (it was cold in FL!) and a dorm sized frig and microwave. Nice pool area.
Look for newly renovated, low cost hotels like the Rosen Inn. I can't comment on service because I don't expect top notch service, but I suspect it is adequate. Contact Mears Transportation for affordable airport transportation (~$30 R/T).
