“Nice view, nice pool, and . . . nice view.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2012

It is just a Days Inn, so I should probably give it a better rating. However, I tend to rely on three qualities to give high ratings and they are: customer service, cleanliness, and charm. This motel really doesn't have any of those things, but I could lump the great view of the Gulf of Mexico and a large pool area in with charm. The lack of cleanliness and rudeness of the staff almost negated those good things. The room could use some updating, but again, for a Days Inn, the dated furnishings and bedding was expected. The bathroom was horrendously dirty, and I'd be willing to bet that every Spring Breaker and Snow Bird since 2003 had been looking at the same dust bunnies and fossilized peanuts around the edges of the furniture. Hotel employees seemed very unhappy and would rather text friends than help guests. Sorry, Days, but I can only give you an "average." And that's being nice.

This motel was a great value for a beachfront room. Everything was clean, neat and well stocked. The check in was fast and easy and everyone we encountered there was friendly. Nice lobby with 24 hr service and COFFEE! The view on the beach was awesome. Big windows, and best seen I would think from floors 6 and 7. We stayed on the 6th floor and it was great. Close to many attractions to include the county pier. Will come back again. The pics on this site, do not do the property justice. The staff if friendly and will replace or fix any issues. I had a coffeepot that was not working and they quickly came and switched it out. Adequate supply of towels and wash clothes.

Room Tip: the higher floors are best (great view of the beach) If traveling in the winter,might consider a tr...

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 November 2011

I took the negative reviews into consideration, but decided to give this property a try anyway and I'm glad I did. This is a very good value, especially during the "off" season for a beachfront motel. It is a motel, not a resort, so don't expect it to be something it doesn't try to be. The check in went very smoothly and the clerk I had was very pleasant and listened to my requests for a room away from smoking and noise. Everything in my room worked well and I used everything from the microwave to the coffeemaker. Yes, the bathrooms really do need an update and you will find sand on the floors, but you will find that in some of the much higher priced hotels. But the VIEW, it was gorgeous, and the window was so large you could see the beach and palms trees from the bed even. I really appreciated the table and chairs in front of the window so you would be comfortable, in air conditioning, if it was too hot to be on the balcony. My only complaint would be that they turn the outside lights on too early if you want to enjoy the stars on your balcony. My bed linens were clean with no holes and the towels were fine. The breakfast choices are adequate, fresh fruit included, and I appreciated that I could make my own good coffee in the room and enjoy my breakfast there with a view. During the "off" season, the parking is not an issue and while I didn't even use the internet, the room even had a desk area. I would not hesitate to stay here again as it is a decent "budget" option.

Room Tip: Down a few doors either way from the elevator and you have pretty palm trees in your view to make it...

First off let's not forget the fact it's a days inn, not the Hilton nor does it pretend to be, I'm here on a sat night, it's $59 for an oceanfront room, free breakfast, parking and wifi, it's tropically decorated, clean and tidy has a fridge and microwave and coffee maker. The balcony is fine, could do with a touch up of paint on the railing but who cares? Is it going to ruin my holiday? Not at all. There is heaps of parking I can't understand what people are complaining about, having to cross a busy road? Whatever use the crossing and stop complaining. I'm a travel agent and am usually a Hilton person but this stay was free for me, I was dubious but since checking in am loving it.

The room was very nice, it was in need of some repair and deep cleaning when it came to the top of the small fridge in the room. However, when we checked out the started putting on new paint and doing the repair work that needed to be done. The morning front desk staff is not friendly at all, so if you have and questions or anything like that save it for the late night staff or afternoon staff, unless you want to talk to 2 very grumpy women who really hate their jobs! The pool is the best attraction to this hotel! Two beautiful water falls going in to the pool, and great music being played and a great tiki bar at the hotel!

Room Tip: If you want the best room in the place, stay on the first floor Ocean side!!!! They are perfect for...
