“Good Value & Friendly Front Desk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

Perfect for a one night stopover when you touch down in Orlando if you got drunk on the flight. Front desk staff were very friendly and polite. Efficient check-in. Rooms basic and ours had a slight musty smell but clean and functional. Pool was clean. Close to Airport - $15 taxi ride. Eateries within walking distance. (Try Kerrs Wing House) No Complaints and a bargain price. Would definitely recommend.

I live out of state and was visiting Florida and needed to stay for a week. Not only was the price very reasonable but the customer service was exceptional, the room and pool was clean and everything was in working order. Imran, Rosari, John, and Alejandra were extremely accommodating, not to mention, all of the staff always had a welcoming smile. I would definitely recommend the Budget Inn and when I visit Florida again I will be staying at this hotel.

Was nervous r/t other reviews but went 4 it as closest to my sis home. Felt bad we did cancel 2 rooms as they DO NOT have rooms where door can be left open between rooms 4 family w/kids. We stayed in one double room and it was GREAT 4 $. Really nice pillows and OK beds. Love the fact vanity and sink seperate from small tub/shower/loo room. Plenty of room to put your "stuff" Has small fridge & Microwave. Yes rooms are little worn/old but clean as was pool. WHAT U WANT for the $ u pay?? You can sit out by dock/grills/pavillion with picknick tables on lake. REALLY! They even had coffee/tea in lobby. When I want Ritz then I pay 450$ and up. When I go back to see sis I WILL BE HERE. IHOP next door had good food too and Mels diner across street OK. So realize you pay 2 star Price and get 3 star value. Any ? e-mail me fellow trippies. :-)

Room Tip: Crowd is 2 star mixed bag. We stay upstairs.

Due to issues or unforeseen circumstances the end result was The Budget Inn, why in the world here. The rooms were always gross but the helpfulness IN THE beginning is what made my family stay. They made us feel like for the money we paid we were going to be taken care of but that was a joke. John and the late night person were super nice but Amari the manager has the worst attitude imagined. Room service fails to clean your room if you stay a week or more and it's your fault. I would not recommend this place to an animal shelter... Roaches, mold and mildew in EVERY room... You would be better of paying more for far better.. This place SUCKS!!!

Room Tip: Don't come here and waste your money!!!

My partner booked this hotel and I left her to it with no idea what to expect or reading reviews till now, after stayin in two other lovely hotels and spending the last week of our holiday in Clearwater we had to book a night here for a flight home next day, check in was fast friendly and easy staff were nice enough and up on arrival the place doesn't look so bad I wasn't expecting a 5 star hotel jus a bed for the night but soon as we opened our hotel door we was hit in the face with a stagnant cat pissy smell, the room was really damp and dingy and to be honest looked like a crack den. It looked tidy enough but all felt grubby and reluctantly I got into bed and tried to sleep for the night ..the air con is very noisy and the toilet made noise all night, the dampness played my asthma up and I got little sleep. Felt like I should be wiping my feet on the way out not way in, wouldn't recommend at all would rather sleep in the airport or a car

It is easy to find and no more than 5 miles from the airport. The staff is very friendly and the grounds are large and include a dock and a gazebo on a small lake, so you don't feel cooped up in your room. The rooms are very small (at least the inexpensive ones are) but you don't need much room if you're just spending a nite there. Lots of restaurants, gas stations, etc, nearby. The downsides - no coffeepot in the room (boooo!), no sheer curtains so you either have to close out all the light or be in a fishbowl with people walking by and looking in. I recommend for a very short stay.

I would definitely not recommend this hotel. The room smelled like cat piss or maybe it was very nasty mold and mildew. Whatever it was it was very BAD! Also beds were old and very uncomfortable. I realize it was only a $50 room but I wouldn't stay at that place again if the room was free! My wife almost went out in the car to sleep.
