“Pleasantly Surprised”
Reviewed April 7, 2012

After reading some of the reviews we were scared of what we may have gotten ourselves into, but we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. No, it is not a 5 star hotel, but for the price we wanted to pay, we didn't expect it to be. It is an older building, but it was clean and maintained and met all the needs of the 3 adults and 6 children in our group. The location was good, close to anything we could need and the beach was easy to find. We would stay here again.

Room Tip: We had two rooms on the second floor around the pool...very convenient if traveling with children.

The only thing we really noticed is that it was hard to cross Gulf to Bay Blvd when coming or going from the hotel parking lot. Rooms were clean.

Thank-you very much for your kind comments. I agree, Gulf to Bay Blvd can be quite busy at times and difficult to cross. In most cases, we recommend turning right out of the motel and then make a u-turn at the traffic light.
Thank-you very much for staying with us. Hope to see you soon.

We stayed at the Days Inn Central in Clearwater for Phillies Spring Training. Overall the stay went very well. Only complaint would be that we ended up in a smoking room even though we had reserved non-smoking. However, the hotel was full, and I understand that sometimes that happens. The room was clean (hint of smokey smell). The housekeeping staff came and cleaned every morning and did a great job and was very quick. The hotel is older and lacks some of the other amenities that other newer hotels may have, but we enjoyed our stay. And in terms of value, we got an incredible deal!

Room Tip: We had a room that overlooked the pool. Even with every room booked, the pool area was never to lou...

Decent place to stay, clean rooms, comfortable beds, friendly staff, basic breakfast, hot coffee, near everything.

Room Tip: I think any room would do. We were satisfied with the set up.

Wow. I know it's an economy but this is bad in the worst way. As I write this I'm looking at some strange window in our bathroom area that literally gives me, my wife and daughters a view of a dark alley. (perverts delight) There is no alarm clock (I had to ask them to bring one to the room). They (the hotel people) are complaining about how much coffee we drink. There isn't even a suit case stand...we're living off the floor. Check out the photos. DO NOT STAY HERE.

We're sorry you did not have a positive experience during your stay. The dark alley you refer to is the hallway leading to the maids closet and is only accessed during regular business hours. Unfortunately I'm unaware if this was mentioned during you stay, perhaps moving to a different room may have been a quick fix to your concern. It is our intention that our guests have a comfortable stay without any distractions. Again, we apologize for any inconvenience and hope you'll allows the opprotunity to serve you again when in the Clearwater area. Thank-you.

My biggest pet peeve about budget hotel chains, like Days Inn, is inconsistency. Either they're really bad, very good or okay for a one night stay. This hotel falls into the last category. The room was your basic, run of the mill outdated motel room. It was, to my surprise, clean and in fairly good order. The bed was not terribly comfy but sheets and pillows were crisp and clean. The cinder block walls ensured no noise from neighboring rooms. The motel offers free local calls and free wi-fi but ask for a room close to the office if a strong wi-fi signal is important to you. Service was friendly. In fact when I checked out at 5am the overnight desk clerk asked if I wanted coffee and a danish to take with me. That was a nice surprise since the motel doesn't offer continental breakfast until 7am.
As for location, it was great. Very close to a mall, dozens of restaurants, including the original Hooter's and the beaches are a short drive. No real complaints from me and at a rate less than $50 a night, it's a steal for the area.

Room Tip: Close to the front for strong wi-fi.
