“Great Place To Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Had to come to the area for a funeral service and not too many hotels. Used our AARP and got a great rate. Upon checking in asked if we could have a quiet room which we thought would be impossible in a small inn. Gave us an end room and whether it was just luck or they blocked it, next door room not used for entire week. The gals who work 3-11PM were wonderful reps of this hotel...always smiling and accommodated us with several requests. Breakfast buffet was sufficient. Housekeepers were great and respectful. We were grateful for the large safe in the room but our only criticism was the $l. a day charge on our check out for "safe with limited warranty"....no big deal but we have stayed at resort hotels throughout the world and never encountered this charge. The woman who owns this hotel, Linda, also owns the JD's Bistro next door....30 years ago it was Johnny Be Good bar....now it is a.very classy, upscale restaurant and lounge with nightly entertainment....not too many upscale restaurants in this area and they were packed. This is a great hotel if you need to be in this area of FL.

Room Tip: End rooms would be quieter.

Thank you so much for taking the time to share such kind words after your stay with us. It is often hard to respond to all the reviews, and your stay was so special. We regret the reason, but we are happy that we could provide you with a comfortable, quiet, and enjoyable hotel and dining expereince. I am so proud of JD's Bistro and Grille and you should see all the improvements! The staff and I hope you can plan a trip just for fun, and enjoy all our area has to offer! Thanks again for taking the time to provide your review, as it means so much to the staff and myself.

I was a vendor at the Spring Spectacular in Port Charlotte, and the Days Inn was the "host" hotel. I found everything GREAT.....room clean, bed comfortable, and employees most accomodating upon check in....even got a phone call once I had arrived in my room to make sure that everything was okay. However, upon check out, I asked to pay in cash instead of having my credit card charged, and was advised that it was not possible, since the card had already been charged. Was not happy with this at all, but didn't want to make a scene on Easter morning....will remember this the next time I return. I'm positive that the transaction could have been "backed out," and there were not others waiting in the lobby, so I feel that it just was an "inconvenience" for the check out clerk that he didn't want to undertake. : (

Thank you for staying with us during your show, and for providing your honest feedback. We appreciate all the positive comments! However our concern has been the check out experience feedback. The desk clerk remembers checking you out, since your review made it easy to find your reservation.

He remembers having a wonderful conversation with you, but not the request for cash payment. We always happily accept when guests prefer to pay with cash at check out, which is common. The only time we can’t is when someone books with a third party website, where they pay that website at the time of booking. Also, when someone uses a debit card we’re often concerned about how long it will take the bank to remove a hold, and we share all of this with the guest to make sure we best serve them. We always strive to do what’s best for the guest.

Since you booked directly with us, it would be our policy to happily take cash payment at check out! The desk clerk has been with us a long time, and he is very disappointed and concerned about this. He doesn’t know how he could have misunderstood your conversation, or request to pay cash. We believe you asked to pay cash as it was a very sincere review, and he doesn’t know how he missed it. We love accepting cash at check out, and we guarantee it’s not an inconvenience in any way! We deeply apologize for any misunderstanding, and regret that we somehow missed this opportunity to exceed your expectations. Please accept not only the desk clerk’s deepest apologies, but the owner’s as well. Again, we appreciate your feedback as we will use it to improve our guests’ experiences.

Warmest regards,

Last Thanksgiving I had to come to Port Charlotte somewhat unexpectedly. The Day's Inn was extremely convenient, clean and friendly. Rates were good. I wish it had been warmer as the pool looked good too, but it was too cold for swimming. Good Breakfast offerings too. Yes, I would recommend it.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing away from US 41, although the hotel sets far enough back to buffer some of the...

I was pleasantly surprised when I checked in here. Usually Days Inn have a reputation for being a low budget choice, but my room was immaculate and large. In fairness, I guess the rates of this hotel are higher than he average Days Inn, but then again, there are nor a lot of options in this location.

Thank you for staying with us and taking your time to provide feedback! Our goal is to exceed your expectations and earn a top rating of 5! If there’s anything we could have done to improve your stay, please let us know. Our highest season in SWFL is March, however April to December rates are back to that normal average. We still offer so much more than brand standards, at a fair price. There are other hotels in the area, and they were priced at our rate or higher depending on brand. It was just the time of year! Thanks again for staying with us, and we hope we can further exceed your expectations next time!

I would like to start off by saying what life savers the staff at the Days Inn is. I didn't actually have the opportunity to stay with them due to the corporate 800 number booking a room for me when then were actually sold out.
My husband and I were traveling by motorcycle from Key West to Atlanta. We knew that the weather for 3/23 was going to be dicey, but did not expect the thunderstorms that started on 3/22 at about 10 pm. We stopped to eat, called the 800 number and was delighted to find a room less than a mile a way. That was quickly dashed as when we arrived - we were told that they did not have a room available and the corporate office should never have booked us a room. By this time the rain was coming down in buckets. Called the 800 number and explained what happened- they offered us a room 25 miles south or maybe something 50 miles away - I didn't see any hope
The staff at the desk jumped on it for us- the started calling hotels in the area and explained our situation. They were able to secure us a room at a Holiday Inn Express about 5 miles away. I was in the verge of tears when they told me
I wish I would have gotten their names - but they were our savior that night. Don't know when I will be passing this way again- but I will defiantly stay with them

Stayed a week and for the most part it was very nice. The rooms were extremely clean and the beds were comfortable. There are some shops and restaurants within walking distance. The staff at the desk were very friendly and accommodating. If I could improve on anything it would be their housekeeping schedule. They were great, however, they strip the room in the morning and then your room may not be completely done until the late afternoon. This makes it hard to come back and relax. Also, the breakfast could be improved. The chafing dishes are out but everything in them is cold and must be heated in the microwave. The set up is disorganized and somewhat confusing, and the woman that runs it is not friendly at all. You feel as if you are in her way. She also shuts it down about 15 minutes earlier than posted.
I would definitely stay there again though....

Room Tip: Ask for one of their newly remodeled rooms
