I rated this hotel last year and feel compelled to review it again because of the poor reviews other travellers have given it. Over the past year I have stayed in this Days Inn about once a month and haven't had a bad experience yet (and I consider myself Ms. Picky). On my last trip I brought my daughter and granddaughter and they loved it! The neighborhood is absolutely safe. Although you have to use common sense everywhere, I am comfortable walking to the Walgreens around the corner alone at night. The location is nice for families because North Beach has a small city atmosphere and is slower paced than south (South Beach) and north (Bal Harbor). (I was so taken with this section of Miami Beach from earlier stays at the Days Inn, that I bought a house blocks away.) There are wonderful Jewish and Cuban bakeries everywhere for your morning coffee and pastery and good, inexpensive restaurants - Mexican, Thai, Middle Eastern, Cuban, Argentinian, Italian, etc. But do give the hotel's restaurant a try for casual oceanside eats. The staff at the Days Inn are genuinely nice and concerned that your stay is a good one. At this point we are on a first-name, hug-hello basis. The rooms are consistently clean with decent linens and the small refrigerator is nice for wine and sodas. I especially appreciate that the rooms are well-soundproofed so you can't hear the guests in the next rooms (unlike many high-end hotels). For under $10 you can buy a 24-hour parking pass good for anywhere in the neighborhood. There is plenty of parking within steps of the hotel and it is nice not to have to wait around for the valet to get your car. Although there isn't a hotel fitness center, there is a gym within walking distance where you can get a day pass if you need more of a workout than the paved oceanfront runnning path provides. The hotel pool is always sparkling clean maybe because most guests opt for the ocean so it isn't overused. The beach is one of the least congested streaches in Miami with lifeguards and nice facilites for outdoor showering. Plus, you don't have to be a silicone enhanced, thong-wearer to feel comfortable on North Beach. I suggest you check out the North Shore State Recreation Area next to the hotel - a 40+ acre oasis of natural tropical flora and fauna (I've sighted lots of iguanas and parrots) with picnic pavillions (you can pick up picnics-to-go at the nearby Publix supermarket), BBQs, bike trails, a fitness course, playground, boat and kite rental - even a handicap accessable boardwalk. Well used by local families on the weekends, the park is like a private preserve during the week. I had to stay at the Fountainbleau in February for a conference and missed the Days Inn so much that I schlepped there to hang out on the veranda one afternoon, sipping my 2-for-1 Mojitos, relieved to have escaped all the bling and hip of my high-priced hotel room to the south. When my house is finished I won't be staying there anymore, but will book overflow guests at North Beach Days Inn without breaking the bank and with confidence that they will enjoy their stay.
