I booked myself and friends at the Budget Motel for 2 rooms on March 26, 2016. I called two days before check-in to confirm verbally that the reservation for 2 rooms was all set. I was assured that it was. When we arrived to check in, we were refused the second room even though we had a printed confirmation from... More

Do not under any circumstance book here!! We booked 2 rooms months in advance and called 2 days prior to ensure our two rooms were still booked. We get here to the office saying first thing "It's too bad you booked so early so I couldn't change my rates." And then charged our card for one room instead of two... More

It wasn't the worst place we've stayed at, but it ranks right up in the top 10 worst. Bad neighborhood with loud rap music playing all night long. The carpets were sticky, I wore my flip flops on my feet. Old, run down with poor beds. Would not recommend this place to anyone. I also got the feeling of a... More

Went with another couple for an event in which we would be gone during the day. Just needed a place to sleep and regroup. I read some of the older reviews and was a little worried about what to expect, as we had stayed there before in years past, and I hadn't remembered it being that bad. Place was fine.... More

What a disgusting place to stay.We stayed 5/3/14-5/6/14 because our son was graduating from UF that weekend. When we booked through Booking.com it looked like a nice place until we checked in. It had the look & feel of one of those hotel you rent hourly if you catch my meaning.First off the beds where so hard and pillow were... More

We ended up here because the motel next door wouldn`t honor our reservation. The owners were friendly however, the room was a disaster! Although we had a non-smoking room, there was a plug in air freshener that made our eyes water from the strong smell, which was there the whole weekend even after unplugging it. There was a kitchenette but... More

The price was about right for what you would expect to pay for this room. Microwave, stove, oven refrigerator, cabinets, sleeper sofa, and never-ending hot water. It was clean and comfortable. I called them late at night and I was in a pinch for a room. At first he said he would not rent me the room because I smoke... More

I booked a room 1 1/2 weeks in advance for the 4th and 5th of October, 2013. I made it VERY clear to the woman taking the reservation that I required a SCENT FREE, FRAGRANCE AND CHEMICAL free room due to my severe allergies (MCS). She assured me OVER AND OVER that they would save a room where no one... More

I reserved a room at this hotel on the phone site unseen. When I arrived to check in I realized just by looking at the outside of this motel that it looked dirty and creepy. Stray cats and filthy water bowls for the cats were scattered all over throughout the entrances to the rooms. The office smelled horrible and musty.... More
