“Average motel, nothing more”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2012

The reviews perhaps raised my expectations but this was just an average motel. The staff was nice but not outgoing. The breakfast was disapointing (even for a Days Inn) with watered down milk and out of juice, etc. The premises were clean but the rooms were musty with flimsy towels.

Hotel is centrally located. Hotel is nicely remodeled and clean. Breakfast is acceptable. There is nice pool and seating area. A few moments after check in management called our room to check if everything was fine which impressed me. Hotel had friendly staff. With the room and breakfast, it was a good value for the price. I'm selective and I will stay there again.

The staff at this place is friendly, courteous, helpful, and just great. The room was very clean. Lots of pillows on the bed. Outlets are on the lamps on the desk - not enough really, but I was able to function fine. Big bathroom, very clean. Water pressure was not great, but acceptable. The exhaust fan was a bit loud, but it worked well. Nice mini-fridge and microwave. Skimpy towels. Decent pool and spa. I think the pool is unheated, which isn't usually a problem in St. Pete except in the dead of winter. They have a coin operated laundry which was also very clean and worked well. I didn't try the free breakfast, but it looked to be pretty spare. Wireless internet was free and worked great. The best thing about this place is the staff. It appears to be family owned and operated. Everyone there was always smiling and seemed to genuinely care about my comfort and satisfaction. They even called as soon as I got to my room to make sure everything was OK. I felt perfectly safe there. It was very quiet and comfortable. Granted, this is not a fancy hotel - it is a Days Inn. Don't expect a high end hotel. I would absolutely go back and would recommend this hotel to anyone. Oh, one warning - the cleaning staff leaves around noon, so if you are late sleepers it might be a problem. I slept in one day and missed the cleaners, but the staff exchanged my towels and took out my trash. They really seem to care, which is something I haven't experienced in a while even at "nicer" hotels.

We arriver in the Tampa Bay area quite late and we were looking for a decent accomodation option. After several wacky motels and rude managers talkings, we stopped by Days Inn Central. The manager was very friendly and showed us the rooms before booking them. It was nice and clean, with a big bathroom. The motel has a pool and a small heated bubble bath. The bed was very comfortable. In the morning, you can make waffles in the tiny reception hall and have a coffee, a juice or a tea (also muffins and toast bread). The manager was very helpful for printing our e-tickets for Busch Gardens.The only minus point is that the carpet in the room appeared to be slightly dirty... after walking with wet feet on it, we saw traces in the tiled floor of the bathroom.

This is only a small motel, not an average Days Inn. Even though the room size is spacious enough, equipped with fridge and microwave oven, it is just a basic motel. It is advertised as having "renovated rooms", but the "reno" was not too evident - like there is no power outlet available around the working desk area. Don't expect much from the breakfast, there are not much varieties and the dinning area is non-existent - share with the tiny front desk area. And for those who are sensitive to smoke (including incense stick burning), it is not a pleasant area to stay while holding your breath.

I chose this hotel based on TripAdvisor reviews, and they didn't steer me wrong! Very pleasant and courteous management, quiet and immaculate room, and a nice pool area to relax for a while. Don't misunderstand - it's on a busy road with fast-food joints and sleazier motels; this is NOT the place to go for a romantic getaway. But for business trips or even vacation-on-a-budget, you can't go wrong. I would definitely go back.

Stayed two nights. New owners have worked hard to turn this little hotel around. Very quiet, very clean. My room had a frig and microwave. Best rates around for the value. Would stay here again.
