“Big disappointment for a Days Inn”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

We usually love Days Inn but this hotel was a big disappointment. The room had a broken drawer in the dresser and TV had missing buttons. The mattress in our room were definitely old and worn out which is not up to the Days Inn standards. The front desk clerk said I booked a smoking room where on my reservation it clearly says "non-smoking". I was a little taken back by that comment. This hotel clearly needs two front desk clerks and two breakfast attendants. This hotel will not be revisited by us again. I will pay more for things that actually work.

This place is not clean. Rooms are very small and not clean at all. Our ceiling in the bathroom was leaking and the bathtub was clog. We ask to change room but still the same issues...Never going back. They have a swimming pool, that about the only great thing about that place. To avoid if you can!

My family and I rented this room because we were told the motel was fairly new and newly renovated. NOT!!!!!! The sink stopper was broken, the faucet did not got left or right for hot and cold, too 10 mins for the shower water to get hot, the microwave was severely damaged and one of the beds was so sunken in I got the creeps. I lifted the sheets and the mattresses were filthy. My skin started to crawl.

I've booked this motel on the way to Tampa. The police was there when we arrived (in the evening) and then they carried a body out of the motel. Don't know what happened, but that wasn't nice, it made me feel very uneasy. I guess its okay to spend one night, quickly in and out. They have breakfast, so that's a plus.

Jamie K, Manager at Days Inn Tampa/North of Busch Gardens, responded to this review, June 22, 2014
We are sorry that you had to witness this unfortunate event. This was a guest of ours who had been staying with us on her vacation, and to visit family. She was an elderly woman, who passed away due to health conditions. This unfortunate event has nothing to do with the safety and environment of our property.
