    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;&lt;em&gt;This paper aims to explore the primary factors that affect the perception of domestic tourists towards the service quality of budget hotels in Egypt. The factors were divided into three main constructs: physical quality, service quality and value for money.

Primary Elements associated with the budget hotel stay were also ranked according to guest satisfaction&lt;/em&gt;&lt;em&gt;.&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/p&gt;</description>
