This hotel was what we expected. We were just looking for a place to sleep. The room was comfortable and mostly clean. The managers were nice folks and had a good continental breakfast every morning.

Great location, 5 minutes walk to the beachfront and marina. Basic motel style rooms were clean & comfortable enough. Stayed 1 night en route to Venice, lots of restaurants within a few minutes walk. Ideal Base

Stayed here after reading other reviews. Older motel, but well maintained and clean. Shower stall. No tub. Stall was very tight. Would not be good for tall or larger patrons.

I had a good stay at Days Inn and it's by the beach and a few minutes walk to downtown. The breakfast was decent too.

it was an emergency trip, we needed a place to stay near the hospital. This hotel was affordable and close, even though we booked the room last minute the staff stayed up ridiculously late to help us check in. The rooms were very spacious and neat. I am very happy with our stay at this hotel!

Very nice property, great location to the beach, wharf, harbour, and state street Room was clean, nice shower, hot water. Property owners were very nice and friendly people. Always at the front desk to help out, from checking in late at night to breakfast early in the morning. Great value, we'll be back! Thanks!

This motel is all we wished it would be. We used it last February and we're pleased – so we booked it again this December. It's clean, it's quiet and the staff is friendly as well as helpful.
