“For the Money”

We were flying out early morning so we were only going to sleep for a few hours, it was clean only double beds but the price was $60. Really what can you expect for price nothing to fancy.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

This place is old looking and nothing fancy but worked for 1 night as it was about 15 mins from the Sandord airport. The place was clean but again kind of old and worn looking.

There are tons of great places to eat around here - Joes crab shack, Don Pablo's, Denny's, Route 66, etc.

Nice continental breakfast and friendly customer service.

Beware - mapquest will take you to the wrong location. call for another address.

Room Tip: I'd recommend a room not on the highway side as I could hear the cars at night.

From Hwy 4, exit 101C, this Days Inn is pet friendly with a fee of $20, no size limit on dogs. There’s enough area to walk dogs on leash - just be careful of the deep canal at the back of the property, you could lose something back there. The hotel is old but when you’re traveling with a larger dog you take what you can get. The fridge handle was filthy so we used a Clorox wipe on it which easily removed the stickiness. We had no complaints overall because we were traveling with pets and you have to take what you can get but I wouldn't have stayed here otherwise.

We used petswelcome.com to find this hotel, they were a good source for hotels up and down the eastern seaboard and, thankfully, not all hotels on their site were as run down as this one.

We were on a budget and needed 2 rooms for 3 nights each room
Rates were good but still have hot water issues and next time will stay at the Comfort Inn
There will be no second chance

We were looking for a pet friendly hotel to spend the night while our RV was being repaired. My wife got up in the middle of the night to use the restroom and she saw one large roach and about twenty babies all over the refrigerator! When she complained at the front desk in the morning all the clerk did was write it down on a list she was keeping. All smells outside the room came in through the AC so I awoke in the morning to the sweet smell of diesel exhaust and cigarette smoke. The room was in terrible repair and some of the ceiling tiles over the frig looked like they were about to come down. The beds were ok and the temperature control was good although the AC fan stays on the whole time.
Never again.

Room Tip: Good Luck!

50's Style or Just Old. Hot Water was a major issue. As a plus it was close to Dennys but that doesn't make it worth the Stay. Motel peeps were all good (the one that could understand English.) but Truly Needs a Re Model and some continuous Hot Water. Shower Sucks the Most.

We chose this hotel because it was close to the airport and we had an early flight the next morning. When we checked in the girl at the desk was very unprofessional, she barely looked at us because she was busy goofing around with a guy that I'm not even sure worked there but was behind the desk. The room was horrible! The bathroom walls were filthy and there was a puddle of something in the corner. When I turned on the light during the night some kind of bugs ran across the nightstand! The beds were old and not very clean. Needless to say, we didn't get much sleep. If you need to stay near the Sanford airport spend the extra few dollars and go somewhere else!
