Okay area... Room could have used a vacuum cleaner

Posted Aug 19, 2017
Being non smoker we were very dissatisfied with our room being right in front of the ashtrays. We we traveling with others couples and wanted to be next door so in order to get away from the ashtrays everyone would have had to change rooms.

We thank you for your feedback. As we had discussed, placing a trial of ashtrays throughout the property now that all of our rooms are nonsmoking and the property is not, is an effort to encourage smokers to be clean and not throw their smoking essentials over the balcony to the immediate parking lot...again, we apologize. Yes, we could have moved your 2 rooms during your multi night stay had we known.

Poor cleaning, rude receptionist

Posted Aug 3, 2017
Pros: breadfast
Cons: improve the cleaning!! clean the headboards and use some air freshener. Train more your Receptionist specially the way she welcome your guest.
Location: perfect
The wood headboard of the bed was disgusting with some kind of grease, bad odor inside of the bedrooms and Carla the receptionist was not the most nice person. Very rude and cero smiling to the guests. The breadfast was great and the location was perfect.

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.
