“Cockroaches!!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

We arrived very late from the Fort Lauderdale airport and just needed a place to sleep. The first thing we encountered was the rude night clerk. Not being used to being in a bigger city, we didn't know that cash was not accepted. We didn't know that you couldn't enter the lobby where the clerk stays. The only room available was a smoking room. And I will never make that mistake again! Our clothes were saturated with the smoke smell, just from sleeping in the bed. I went to the bathroom as soon as we entered the room and there were 4 cockroaches by and under the garbage can. We immediately checked for bed bugs and thank God there weren't any. Under any other circumstances we would have left immediately but we were completely exhausted. We put all of our luggage up high, slept, got up early and checked out. The coninental breakfast was a joke. Apples, oranges, corn flakes and fruit loops and some muffins. Please don't waste your money!

Room Tip: We were on the 2nd floor and there is an elevator but we didn't know that thanks to no help from...

The lobby was nice and the desk clerk was nice but walk out the door and around the corner to the actual hotel and there is nothing nice. I would not even want to guess what the stains on the carpet were and the rest of the room was just as filthy. I have stayed at a lot of Days Inn hotels and been very happy and comfortable but this one should not carry the Days Inn name.

They also advertise free airport shuttle service. If you plan to use the shuttle, don't schedule a flight before 8:00 am or you will have to pay for a service/taxi at $30. I didn't realize shuttle services had "bankers" hours.

We were only there when it was dark but you add the appearance of a questionable neighborhood to walk to a restaurant, I say run, don't walk from this hotel until they do major renovation. Even then, I would question the shuttle service. Add $30 transport to the price and I could stay at a nice hotel that does run their shuttle service to accomodate guests.

Room Tip: Find another hotel.
