Stayed here one night in July as I was taking my teenagers to Busch gardens. I had planned to stay in the holiday inn express next door , but they were booked full. So drove next door to days inn as it was late and we were tired. First room we were given, could not get the door to open after 2 sets of keys. Finally got another room, and the smell was terrible when you walk in. Mold? Smoke? Room was dirty looking , bathroom was tiny. The towels were tiny and paper thin. Unlike some other reviews our linens and towels appeared clean. Furniture falling apart. We stayed cause we were tired and just needed a place to crash. The AC struggled to keep the room cool and we were across from the ice machine so heard people getting ice throughout the night. So I would suggest staying somewhere else if you can!

I have stayed at alot of hotels and by far this is the worst one ever. Staff was rude. The room smelt like mold. Walls, sheet, and chairs were stained. The carpet had crud all over. Really bad neighborhood. Me and my husband checked out a day early because maids there are known to steal and when we brought this up to manage ment and they didnt care at all. This is not even worth a dollar.

This place was situated in a GREAT place, the only thing wrong was the whole damn hotel itself. I got there a couple of hours ago & I had to tell my fiance that it looked nice in the pictures. Yeah right! NOTHING compared to the pictures. I didn't care that I had already spent my money on the reservation... We had to leave.. I wanted to throw up, the room stunk, the sheets were nasty. I was scared to even take my sandals off. The furniture was all worn out. The bathroom had 2 dead roaches.
