You get what you pay for right? Well, the Days Inn gave me more than I expected. I was given a newly renovated room on the sixth floor. New bed, furniture, wall fixtures, art, and carpet. The matress was comfortable. The Air condiditioner quietly cooled more room. The fridge chilled my beverages as cold as they could get without freezing.
The staff was great too. Room was clean. Beds made, carpet vacuumed, towels and soap replaced daily. Breakfast wasn't special, but it was good. I couldn't get myself to eat powdered eggs, but the hot potatoes were okay. They had french toast slices, ego type waffles, english muffins, bagels and a small choice of cereals to go with fresh fruit and yogurt. You could wash it all down with a decent cup of coffee and your choice of juice from the juice bar.
The lady working the breakfast area was great. She kept the breakfast area stocked while I was there. I got up early and ate then went about some business. When I returned just after 10:00, the breakfast bar was still fully stocked even though the serving hours were close to finishing. She cleaned every table and seat as customers left.
They had a bar cart set up in the late afternoon. I didn't take advantage of it as I'm a BYOB traveler, but they had top shelf liquors to serve if you were interested.
I came down for a funeral. I'll come back for the beach because the hotel is in a great location. It's not in the best part of town but it's just ten minutes from the nicest beach around and close to the highway. I priced the rooms at the beach and... I'll stay at the Days Inn and drive. Hope this review was helpful. I really had a pleasant stay.
