“Outdated, but ok for a night.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

We were looking for a hotel to stay for the night. For some reason, this hotel was not on the WyndhamRewards.com website. I repeat, it was NOT on the WyndhamRewards.com website. I asked the desk clerk why/how this happened, and was told they were not part of their network. Supposedly the Days Inn, Microtel, Baymont Inn, etc. hotels each have to pay Wyndham Rewards to be on their website. I didn't know this, so I guess you learn something new everyday. Anyways, they DID accept the $49.95 coupon (or similar price), so that was appreciated. The roads around the hotel were rough, and the pool area needs cleaning up as well. The carpets were outdated as well. Some good notes... This hotel is huge. There must be 150 to 200 rooms at this Days Inn. I did like the sliding glass doors in each hotel room. I also liked the very spacious breakfast area, as there were were about 50 chairs available. There were also many cereals and breads available. The staff was very friendly as well. I stay at Wyndham Rewards hotels (Days Inn, Microtel, Knights Inn, etc.) up to 30 days a year, so I know what to expect from these hotels.

Nothing nice to say about this hotel. It's old but in this day you can make an old property presentable! Had a 2 night reservation but quickly checked out the first morning. If we hadn't checked in after 11 pm we would have gone to the Hampton Inn where we ended up staying the 2nd night!

--Very dirty carpet--did not even take my shoes off
--Stale smelling, dusty just plain nasty!!
--Air conditioner did not work-cut off in the middle of the night, came back on and cut off again in the morning while trying to get ready to leave--temp outside in the 90's so you can imagine!
--old thin towels-stained and thread bare from bleach
--air conditioner ready to fall from the wall--mold evident in the cracks
--stained walls
--very uncomfortable bed with NO matress cover
--unsavorie characters hanging around--did not appear safe at all
--hotel doors leading into the hallways not locked
--almost true Continental breakfast--old looking cheap pastry, milk(setting on counter was not iced)--cockroach belly up on the carpet--DID NOT eat after seeing all of this!!

Room Tip: Keep driving bye!! Never again at Day's Inn!! Good back in the 70's but not now!

Stayed hear for the HITS in Ocala. Very cheap rate, but what a worn down old hotel. The people were nice, but I did have a little trouble one night getting more towels.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2011

Came up from Sarasota for a convention the next day. I just needed a nice & safe place to crash and go. Holy Crime Wave, Batman! The Days Inn is NOTHING as pictured. The property is in very poor condition. Overgrown grass, peeling paint, secured exterior doors propped open and people coming / going from a dark tinted Cadillac Esclade parked in the very back of the property. No security cameras outside that I could see. ( I used to work security for a major retailer. Hard Lines 4 , anyone?)

Next door, the property is an abandoned hotel where broken windows and gang style "tags" adorned the building. The fence between the two properties is broken in several places. That property has broken doors, broken windows and a strip of security tape that completed the picture for me. I bailed out and will probably lose my money (the booking website has yet to respond) but staying next to a crack den is not cheap compared to my car insurance $500 DEDUCTABLE!

Room Tip: Crack den to the east. Very poorly lit & isolated parking lot to the south.

We booked 2 nights here in may 2011 during our 2 week trip trough Florida. Can't say anything negative about this place. Staff was friendly and helped us out on things to see and to do in the area. Perfectly located, 10 minute drive to Silver Springs theme park and Ocala national forest and there are enough restaurants to eat near the hotel. Very clean and comfortable room on ground level. Breakfast area is large so enough place to sit and eat. The area around the motel looks nice and well organized. We didnt use the pool but people who did looked happy. Hope to come back someday!
