Recent guest reviews

Stayed one night but impressed with the cleanliness of everything. Everyone was very nice and helpful. Looks like updates are slowly being made. Definitely worth the money. Will stay again!

Hotel was clean. Staff was very friendly and the area was very nice! Breakfast a plus!!!

We have frequented this hotel several times to make early flights out of Sanford. The price is great and the accommodations are definitely adequate. I wouldn't suggest it for an anniversary getaway but for a quick trip from A to B, the staff and amenities can't be found for a better price. We will definitely stay again.

Choose this hotel because of the airport shuttle. The hotel is 3 miles from airport with a easy direct route with little traffic. Sanford airport is so small this option would work well with a rental car as well. Rental cars are located just across from Arrivals/Departures. We checked in at 3pm, Stephanie was on hand to welcome us and handled all our questions and got us signed up for the am shuttle. Good thing! In the morning at 5am sharp when it loaded, it was full (8 people)-not sure if what happens if they have more riders than seats. We also took the shuttle from airport after dropping car and we were picked up in 10 mins. Driver, Susanne was prompt,courteous and very capable. The morning driver was also very competent and drove safely in the early dark. The hotel itself was a great value. The staff was personable gave us excellent information for staying at hotel and using the shuttle. They were able to handle all our concerns. The Hotel lobby was clean and recently updated with paint and window treatments. It was bright and cheerful. There is a coffee/hot water station in lobby available all day. Continental breakfast is served from 4:30am with a large selection of cereals, yogurts, juice, fruit, boiled eggs, milk, breads, pastries, bagels, fresh coffee. Perfect for early morning pick up. There are lots of seating options and two TVs for am news and weather. The rooms are ample and well furnished. Everything seemed new and in good condition

Comfortable room, and a plus having a refrigerator, microwave, and coffee pot without having to ask. My only disappointment was not being able to shower properly. As a disabled person I did get the roll in shower, but the shower head was not near the seat, and not adjustable for me to lower for showering. Disability comes at different levels. Adjustment is requested to relocate an adjustable shower head near the seat, or the seat placed closer to the shower. As an advocate for the disabled, I hope the changes will be made. Enjoyable stay, with kind, pleasant staff.

Staff were very helpful. Nice location close to the airport.

Bathroom was not cleaned. "Something" was left on floor around toilet. Previous occupant's used shampoo/soap were left on floor of tub. When I complained to the front desk staff. I was told housekeeping had already left for the day.

Room looked like it wasn't vacuumed and room had a musty smell. Out of most of the food for continental breakfast before 6am.

excellent hotel. spotless, quiet, toiletries wonderful!!!!!!!! very efficient friendly staff. pool not cleaned yet. needs some firmer pillows. could not get hot breakfast as it was not served until 630am, kinda late. did have access to cold breakfast.

Dining room tables were dirty. Staff came out several times with food but never cleaned them off. I told desk clerk and he just said thanks but they still were not cleaned

Just stYed over nite to catch a flight but very good experience will stay ere again when I am in the area

While the staff and operations of the hotel were excellent and friendly, the hallways and rooms had a very strong moldy smell. Shuttle to the airport and back was great.

We had an excellent stay. Super great staff. We used the shuttle to the airport and that went well. Boys loved the outdoor pool. The breakfast started early which was nice since we had an early flight. Great experience.

Made it easy to return rental car, and get back to Hotel. Very good service. Wood stay here again.

We had no hot water and were told by the clerk that we should have had hot water as our room was close to the "furnace. No Wi-Fi and no breakfast as advertised

The 58 mile trip from Disney to Sanford took me almost 2 hours in bumper to bumper traffic. So glad I had booked here for my morning flight out of Sanford. I was wiped out by the time I pulled in, but the cheery greeting from the front desk was just what I needed. The clerk was so helpful with information about the morning breakfast times and offering a wake up call. Breakfast was nicely appointed and the staff was constantly wiping up and replenishing. Very clean. Airport was a 5 minute easy commute. Single, older traveler felt very safe. Great choice!

This is an old Days Inn, which is a clue right there. The pool was big and really great. After that...hmmm...the breakfast offering was pitiful, the rooms were old and musty, the sink was made for midgets, the bathroom was small. The TV was modern and a great picture. Mixed. If you want a pool and TV, this is your spot.

This was just right for us. Close to the airport and staff was very nice.

Close to airport friendly staff clean great waffles and easy check in and out.

We just needed a place to stay for one night before our 8am flight the next morning and didn't want to spend a ton of money for one room. The facility was very neat and clean but I have to say the staff was outstanding. Not only were they friendly but they also offered shuttle service that evening to a excellent restaurant. Another nice amenity was the fact that they offered a continental breakfast starting at 4:30 AM. We were able to grab something to eat before leaving for the airport.
