Budget Inn changes management

Sign workers change out the Budget Inn name for America’s Best Value Inns & Suites on Tuesday. The motel location has existed for more than 40 years in North Port.

NORTH PORT — The Budget Inn now has new management and a new name, a hotel spokesperson said Wednesday.

The 46-room hotel at 14000 Tamiami Trail in North Port has changed its name to Americas Best Value Inn, said owner Ila Patel.

Patel’s nephew, Devan Naranji, assumed management of the hotel last October. The hotel remains owned by Patel.

Recently remodeled rooms have been painted and feature new furniture, Patel said.

The hotel’s eight kitchenette rooms now have stainless steel appliances, including a refrigerator and microwave.

The hotel is also now offering guests breakfast and high-speed Wi-Fi. Nightly rates start at $75.

Along with the renovations, there are initial plans to reopen a pub that is located on the property.
