This is the WORST place I have ever paid to stay in, and I mean, ever paid to stay in. It was an absolute DUMP from the smell to the condition to the dirtiness. We notified the front desk to no avail, apparently they know its a dump and no one cares. This property was deplorable and inhabitable. Ceiling plasters...

We made reservations at this hotel because all we wanted was the cheapest hotel were we could change from clothes we needed to wear for one function we went to -make wine glasses, to another, which required a tuxedo for me and formal dress for my fiancé. We wanted to avoid a long trip back to our house on the...

NEVER STAY HERE! I just encountered the RUDEST staff Ive ever dealt with at a hotel, and on top of it I got bit up by some kind of bug in the night. The AC took forever to cool the room, and I had to climb on a chair to even turn it on. Terrible motel. Way better places within...

There's not much you can expect from a hotel in this price category - bunch of mediocre rooms by the side of the road with uninspiring breakfast selection - exactly what you may need for one night. If you're hoping for more, choose elsewhere to avoid disappointment.

Need a place to stay and you are short on cash? The Budget Inn is the place for you. We were suppose to arrive late evening but ended up arriving at 4 AM to have to check out by 11 AM. The person who checked us in was very nice and easily sold us another night. Budget Inn is close...

This is the cheapest hotel in St. Pete so don't expect anything fancy. The decor was a little run down, but we were just looking for a place to sleep and store our stuff while we toured around. It was clean and quiet. There was a TV with cable, a microwave, and free wifi. There was not a hair dryer,...

This is not the Taj Mahal! Not even close! We decided to stay in St. Petersburg late and looked for something nearby. We booked out of our car having the mindset of the Orlando bargains that can be had in the same price range. The reception was closed and the service happened through a small hole in a glass window....
