Just say NO!!!

Pros: Air conditioning and great location to UCF
Cons: Major renovation needed
Bathroom was dirty - needs major remodeling. Several rooms smelled of marijuana use when walking by. This is more like a $50 a night hotel NOT a $115.00.

Awful

They put us in a smoking room ~ they said that's what I requested ( we are both no smokers why would I want a smoking room ) the smell was awful the next day I could still smell the smoke on my cloths. The door was is suck bad shape you had to kick it to open it - the chairs in the room were torn and full of stains . They had no Shampoo or conditioner ~ the bathroom door was filthy ( I didn't even touch it ~ the places was gross and not cheap ~ do yourself a favor don't stay at this dump

Sleazy Hotel

We were forced to book at this hotel in order to attend son's graduation from UCF. They assigned me a smoking room and told me since I had booked on line the only way I could change it would be to change it on line, they couldn't change it at the counter. They said they had a spray that would suppress the smoke smell but we went three times to get it and the gal said she was too busy to get it. They also added a $3 a day service charge that they said was above and beyond the other charges. Do not come here unless you are desperate, or looking for a $20 hooker

Don't stay here....worst hotel ever!

Pros: Nothing!!!!!
Cons: Everything!!!!!!
Literally the worst hotel we've been too! We checked in at 3pm & were gone by 11pm. There was no way we were spending the night in this dump. Upon entering our room, we were greeted by the strong stench of stale cigarette smoke (this was supposed to be a non-smoking room). I went to the front desk to inform the clerk. She said she'd have someone come spray the room (it never happened, nor do I think it would've made a difference). Not only did the room stink, the furniture was drab & in poor condition, the bathroom floor was sticky & the overall cleanliness of the room was questionable. They had no other rooms available, so we were stuck with this one. We left the hotel about 5 pm to go have dinner with local family members. We stopped at the front desk and informed the clerk no one had been by to spray the room yet. We spent a nice evening with family and returned to the room around 11pm and again were assaulted by the stench of stale cigarettes. My wife and I decided we couldn't spend the night in this room and decided to check out. We told the night clerk we were leaving because of the smell in the room, but he didn't seem concerned. He just checked us out and went back to eating his meal. I've complained on the Days Inn website, but they don't seemly concerned either as they have chosen not to respond to my horrible review of this location. Don't waste your money on this dump, Days Inn should be ashamed of this horrible property.

Discusting

The room was filthy and smelled. The carpet was so dirty it turned everyones socks and feet BLACK. There were dead cockroaches all over the room. There were teenagers slamming room doors upstairs and having a loud disruptive party in which nothing was done about it. It was a terrible experience, I wouldnt recommend this hotel to ANYONE and will NEVER stay there again.

Great stay for the money and great staff.

Pros: It was close to UCF and places to eat without driving.
Cons: A little maintenance in the rooms.
Location: Good eating place close and paintball near also.
First let me say, it was not bad as other reviews had said. The room was clean and nice. The room had small troubles like one of the light don't work and the room smelled a little like smoke but it wasn't bad at all. The staff was very helpful great people working here. I was very pleased with the stay.

i will said that Good luck with me sending anyone

The person who took my call give me a price and later on the day I found out that the price was another. I called back and they said that they could not help me. Plus the room was not prepared for any person whowanted to staying more than one day. Only 2 towels on the room, no blanket and no coffee maker. I complain about the problems with the Team supervisor and she said that it was nothing she could do for me. I paid $165 for a room that only worth $20 in any motel around the area

Should have been renovated ten years ago.

Pros: It was close to UCF.
Cons: Everything needs to be improved. A bulldozer would be a good start.
Location: It is close to the university so if you need to do something there and didn't make a reservation enough in advance then this is the only place left.
Entire place is old and worn out. To turn on the lamp one must unplug the microwave. After showering our water could not be turned off. It is a step up from sleeping in your car, I think.
