2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Rude staff. Dirty rooms. Dirty pool. Sketchy people

Checked in and immediately checked out after seeing the room. I did not call Orbitz immediately so the hotel would only refund 2 out of 3 nights. Illicit activity appeared to be going on in back of the hotel. Police patrolling around the hotel. DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL!

If you are looking for a relatively cheap place to stay with not a lot of frills this is an okay place. I booked it because it was the closest cheapest hotel to LECOM Field and the Pittsburgh Pirates. It is an easy and safe 1/2 hour walk from here to the ballpark. All the rooms are entered from the outside and are not super noise proof. Thankfully it was mostly quiet outside my room, but I could see if the wrong people were there it could get noisy. I have stayed in cheaper priced hotels in other areas that included a continental breakfast, but not in this area.

Average room. Clean. Great location for gorgeous beaches and entertainment

Just needed a place to crash for 2 days which I guess was okay for what I needed but it was fairly run down. I would have to say that it must be a franchise because it would not hold up to corporate standards. They put me in an end room with a huge trash barrel sitting on the corner for the housekeepers. It stayed there the whole time full of trash Not in a nice area either. Some lady with a back pack told me she was just mugged and needed a ride to a church. Not sure about that one. Cockroach in the nightstand drawer. Carpets were gross. The mini fridge was rusted out.There was a little diner in the front but didnt try it, was afraid to.It was noisy too Alot of partiers.A place to crash, sure, but dont try to make a vacation out of it!

The Front Desk rude. the room had lots of roaches and the toilet leak the hotel sucked. If Orbitz is listing hotel they should have people checking them out. Im probably will never use Orbitz again. It was that bad. I actually slept with the light on to keep the roaches at bay.

The first room we were given made us sick and smelled like a musty basement after a flood. No TV or internet either. Claimed there was a fire earlier. We complained and tried to get out of the hotel all together but were unable because we booked through ORBITZ and they have a outsourcing company answering their calls in the Philippines or elsewhere... said we would not be able to change reservation without penalty even though the hotel was HORRIBLE. The second room we were given after the first MESS... we were given a room that had no microwave and the rugs were filthy. Walking barefoot , my feet were black with dirt. TV worked and bad internet connection. The neighborhood that it was in was a little seedy. This is the type of place you stop if there is no other place to stay. To call this a Wyndham hotel is a PURE INSULT TO THE NAME....

I never have any problems there I go visit once a month an I always stay there

It started with a long wait at the window for someone to check me in. I did not get a good feel for this place from the get go. I felt unsafe from the time I arrived. During the night I had a nightmare that someone was in my room. It would not end. I thought the room was possessed. I felt so unsafe that I did not stay the other two nights, and since it was booked through Orbitz, I did not get any of my money back.

The hotel stay was very good, and served my immediate needs for quietude and an opportunity to visit a sick parent, without imposing on her for accommodations. It was close to where I needed to be and they appreciated my request for privacy when needed. It was also very affordable for me. I did not need the cleaning service every day, but when I asked for it, I was well served by Ida. She did a great job tidying up and refreshing my room. I would recommend to anyone that they plan their stay at Days Inn at 3506 1st Street, Bradenton, Florida. Sincerely, Lorraine Garofalo

I found the Days Inn to a perfect place to stay to relax and accomplish all the tasks I went to Florida to do and was in the most ideal location for me. I will definitely stay there again on my next trip.

It was perfect for my small family. We definitely needed it was so worth it. Quiet relaxing and peaceful.

The hotel was very clean, staff was nice. The only bad thing was the beds were super small compared to other beds we stayed in along the way.

I thought that was not that good, but it was really good. For the price was really good.. very clean.

This is the best hotels in the area for the price. It's right next to a Popeye's and has it's own restaurant. Also not far from Arby's, Steak N Shake, and Desoto Square Mall. They are slowing upgrading the rooms and adding flat screens. Nice quiet safe room and a decent price.

the room we had was in the back.. it was all torn up and rough... but we've had other rooms here also that have been very good.

Good value for your buck, not luxury but nice and clean for a good night's rest.

The staff was friendly, and the room was clean . Close to stores and restaurants.

We have nothing negative to say. Quiet, Clean. The beaches are near by and so are other towns

not very good customer service; room smelled bad; hotel had stacks of garbage near the breezeways; loud neighbors
