We have stayed at several Days Inns in the past, and were always happy. We were in Clearwater for Spring Training, and wanted an effiecency unit. Days Inn met all our needs, so I booked in for 5 days.
Upon arriving, check in clerk was good, mentioned the free breakfast. When we got to our room, we were dissappointed to see that the fridge had been turned off and unplugged. Surely, they knew we were coming, and could have at least plugged it in and turned it on. It took almost a whole day to get it at proper temperature. Stove was old, but clean and working. Barely enough utensils for 2 people, let alone 4. Beds were excellent, new and comfortable. We only received one small bottle of shampoo, and 2 bars of soap. I guess we could have asked for more!!!!
When we tried to use the phone, it was not working. When we asked the front desk person, she just looked at us, pressed a button, and said " it is working now". When we voiced our displeasure at not having a working phone, she just shrugged, and then we asked to speak to a manager. The manager explained that the phones did work if you needed to dial 911 or the front desk, but they were routinely turned off until you asked for them to be activated. A simple note beside the phone would have been helpful in this instance. We asked the manager why
we did not have a microwave in our room. He said he would get us one, and true to his word, one arrived within the hour. Pool and hot tub were clean. Breakfast was a joke. We went down on 3 days, and all we saw was cereal ( in old containers that need to be replaced ), donuts, juice and coffee. I think there was toast, but did not stay long enough to look!!! The reason I gave this a "poor" is that it does not stack up to other Days Inn I have stayed in. With a few updates, this could be a really good Days Inn. The manager really seems to care, and wants the hotel to be sucessful, but needs to inject some $$ to make it better. Would not have cost a cent to plug the fridge in, or turn the phone on. Five days was too long, here, but would consider staying again if only for 1 night.
