Smelly un-maintained horrible hotel

Posted Jul 4, 2017
Pros: The breakfast room was a nice room....
Cons: The young lady doing the breakfasts, had a sour angry look on her face, like she just woke up and had to come to work, where she should not be.
Location: Nothing in Sarasota other than a lot of poverty... drunks and homeless. Travel ten minutes and you can find a good mall area.....
Worst Days Inn I ever experienced! The ground floor rooms are carpet on slab. Upon entering the room, I was hit with the mold smell which goes away after awhile as your nose gets desensitized. Very unhealthy no matter what. Then, in first hour, in the easy chair, a baby roach crawls onto my arm!!! Towel rack falling off the wall in bathroom, rust on the metal door frames... front door sticks when closed. Day I left, a big roach came walking across the easy chair as I was sitting nearby putting on my socks... I am now concerned they may have crawled into my luggage. It is apparent the owner here is into keeping every dollar... don't spend a nickle more than necessary on fumigating or making the rooms right for the guests. Please skip this hotel and maybe that will force Days Inn franchise owner or the main office itself to come here and inspect this hotel and take away the Days Inn franchise license.. Just my opinion and I happen to be right!

We thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that you had a bad impression of this fully renovated hotel. If one was to look around the property and see the fresh new palm trees, flowering, bushes, amenities, and a list could go on a mile long of the new and appreciated by most updates and creative projects that have taken endless morning, nights, evenings to complete and create. We are a very popular hotel and approved with a name that stands strong and much appreciated by our guests from all over the world. This fresh new appearance is what keeps people smiling. Thank you for coming.

Very close to airport. Clean rooms friendly staff

Posted Jul 2, 2017
Location: Barnacle Bills next door had really good food. Hotel location was only about a 5 minute drive to the Sarasota airport.
Very close to airport.Less than 5 minutes. Clean rooms. Friendly staff. Very reasonable price. Barnacle Bills next door had really good seafood and great prices for meals during "happy hour" 4-5:30.

Look For Another Hotel

Posted May 27, 2017
Pros: Reasonably priced. Location: Close to the beach and restaurants. Cons: Rooms were unclean & had an unpleasant smell. I booked this hotel because of the positive reviews I read on Expedia. Staff was friendly upon check-in, and the hotel is well maintained from the outside. However, thereafter our stay was a HORRIBLE one. We were first assigned to a room that was FILLED with bugs, they were crawling on the walls, bathroom sink, and furniture. We called the front desk to notify them of the issue, and we were then assigned to a different room. The second room was just as awful as the first one. Although we didn't see any bugs in that room (except for 2 or 3) the room was very unclean. Floors were NOT vacuumed, dust covered the furniture, bathroom smelled like urine, linen was dirty and looked like they were not changed. We also saw a HUGE cockroach outside. The smell of the room was unbearable, it smelled like mold and humidity. Please DO NOT stay at this hotel. Yes the price is cheap, but it is not worth it.

Nice Hotel close to the airport.

Posted May 23, 2017
The room don't have a minibar. It is nice to have a chance to buy a bottle of water if the guest runs out of it late night...

We are pleased to know that our location was a great fit for your travel needs. We will look into options in the future of perhaps having a minibar in the room but there is a microfridge that does keep beverages cold.

Pleasantly surprised!

Posted May 20, 2017
Pros: The modern decor and furnishings of the room as well as the location.
Cons: Can't think of anything.
Location: Walmart minutes away, historic downtown 5 mins, Siesta Key 9 miles.
What a great little motel. Excellent location to historic downtown, Walmart minutes away as well as places to eat and 15 minutes drive to Siesta Key. As a motel I was not quite expecting the quality of room furnishings that I got for the price. It looked like it's been recently updated and was very clean, had modern decor and furnishings with a large fridge, and microwave. There were plenty of sockets by the bed something that seems to be lacking in most motels. The bathroom was very nice with a really good powerful shower. I slept really well and found the king bed to be especially comfortable. The breakfast although basic and not the greatest quality, it was complimentary and certainly enough to set you up for the day. For the price I paid it was an absolute bargain. My one regret I had only booked for one night and wish I had stayed for longer. I will be returning next year for a few nights as had a wonderful experience here compared to the other motels I have stayed in during my trip in Florida.
