We have stayed here off and on for several years and have watched with disappointment as the place deteriorated. Both the exterior and the interior has been neglected. I am sure the bankruptcy didn't help either.

Yesterday was the last straw. We tried to check in only to find that clean rooms were in short supply. Apparently only one maid showed up for work. As we stood there wondering what to do my wife remembered that a new hotel just opened four days ago. We left and went there. Good move. We will never stay at this DI again.

We stayed here en route from Clearwater Beach to Fort Myers. We chose this motel because we wanted to visit Myaka Park. We were very satisfied with the room it was modern, 2 king size beds, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was the best we had during our 3 week tour of Florida and it was the cheapest room we stayed in - at 72.80 dollers for the night. We did use a coupon to get this price. Free parking, nice pool and very helpful staff. Would recommend this motel.

Stayed here for a few nights with a friend to spend time at the beach and visiting friends in the Tampa area. You get a great deal when you book three weeks in advance and also receive a discount when you stay three nights. Check in was great. They ask you if you would like a room to the front of the building or back. Your room key gets you a discount at Applebees down the block. There is a Burger King in front of the hotel and you must go through Burger Kings parking lot to get to the hotel entrance. My surprise was when we were told there was complimentary breakfast every morning from 6:30 to 10:30. Served juice, tea, coffee, danishes, bagels, muffins, toast, cereal and waffles. Vending machines on every floor as well as coin operated washer and dryers. Free wifi worked great in the room. Cable TV in the room even included 3 movie channels. Rooms were clean. Hallways did smell like cigarettes in certain areas because of smoking rooms but our room had no odor to it. The pool area was nice. There are picnic tables to the side of it. Short ride to the beach and easy access to I-75. Would definitely come back again.

For the third year, we decided to stay here for our 2 week vacation, and booked a room through Days Inn head office. What an unpleasant surprise to find the place falling apart! The only room available on the ground floor was 125. It has a connecting door to the next room. There might as well be a piece of cardboard instead of a door. This a non-smoking room. The stench of stale smoke was terrible both in the room and hallway. All doors slam shut, and they do so mostly when you're trying to get some sleep. Two light bulbs were burnt out when we arrived. They were quickly replaced. Damned if I know why housekeeping did not report this. By the way, housekeeping sucks. The bathroom floor is never washed unless requested. Dusting? Forget it. The owner, also owns the Comfort Inn next door, walked away earlier this year. There are serious management problems here. The WiFi is completely unreliable. Other than for the free breakfast and front desk staff, I have nothing good to say about this dump. It is much cheaper to use discount coupons to stay here than booking and paying in advance! They will NEVER see us here again!

Room Tip: There ARE no good rooms here!

Thank you for your responce on trip advisor, I am truly sorry you had an unpleasant stay at Days Inn. Unfortunatly we were sold out this weekend and the only non smoking room available was next to a smoking room. I have addressed this with housekeeping and I as the manager will continue to monitor this situation.
