Stayed one night before our departure from Sanford airport. Close to the airport, lots of choices for dining in the area and a gas station that is open early/late. Hotel was decent for a night. There were quite a few construction vehicles in the hotel. The bathroom should have been cleaned better as the floor was still quite dirty. The...

My parents and I stayed one night before an early morning flight out of Sanford. With a name like "Budget Inn" and outside room doors I had expected a very, very smelly, cheap facility. WOW!!! 😳 was I wrong! 😁. As soon as I walked through the front door I knew this was going to be good. The lobby, although...

We made a one night stop in Sanford and stayed st the budget inn. It was conveniently placed, clean, comfortable and affordable. I know this really is a "budget" chain, but cheap doesn't mean tacky here. At reception we were warmly greeted by a friendly ex pat Scotsman who could not have been more helpful.

The first room we checked into had not been vacuumed, the toilet didn't flush and there were sticky spots on the night table from uncleaned spilled liquid. The room we stayed in (we were tired and decided to just accept the room) had the filthiest phone I've ever seen, a cigarette burn mark on the sheets, no waterproof shower curtain...

We didn't feel like driving back to St. Petersburg & decided to stay at the Budget Inn. Rooms are outside access. We actually like having our vehicle outside the door. Room is clean and spacious. TV is good size, cable, fridge, microwave, coffee-pot, 2 queen-sized beds, small table with 2 chairs. AC works great. WiFi is free and fairly fast....

The hotel clerk did not give me my license back. I called to see if they could mail it and they told me I needed to send them a prepaid envelope. I offered to email a paypal shipping label to them and they told me they didn't have an envelope. Completely unacceptable!!

Stayed after flying into Orlando-Sanford late at night and not wanting to drive 2 hours to get home. I believe the front desk persons name was John. He was very pleasant and attentive. He walked down to exchange my key when it did not work and changed the battery in smoke detector as it was beeping. The room was clean...
