I stayed at both between 02/26/2014 and 03/05/2014 and was shocked at several key areas. True La Playa is being refurbished but the problems there is unbelievable.
La Playa Score 2
Beautiful decorated towels await you. Believe it or not the first thing I pulled was a washrag from the bundle and someone had used it with clotted blood on two inches of corner then put it neatly back into the bundle. No two ways about it, it hadn't been washed.
Snot rag was placed behind the fire exit sign on door. The carpet was sandy when I got there.
Days Inn at I95 and hwy 1 Score 10
They kept up with all areas and was surprisingly clean.
La Playa Score 3
Even though I was on the 8th floor you could hear traffic as if it was a first floor with door open. Hey it's spring break but when you can hear kids on the fourth floor there is a problem. You can see daylight all around the door.
Days Inn Score 9
It's unbelievable that a hotel next to two highways and a railroad track within 200 yards can be quieter than a hotel near the beach but it's true. I would never had known about the railroad if I hadn't heard a train when I first got out of the car.
La Playa Score 2
I was shocked because the sliding glass doors should have been locked from the outside since the balcony rails had been taken down for refurbishment. Not only did I open my sliding glass doors but I heard several others around me sliding theirs. Lets face it college kids get drunk and while there I heard three fights from my room. So think about those same drunk kids sliding those glass doors and stepping out at night to get a breath of fresh air and falling. Their is going to be a law suit out of it I'm betting.
Days Inn Score 8
I noticed someone walking around at all hours there that worked for them. I'd trust them more than La Playa any day. The only reason I gave them an 8 and not higher is I didn't stand outside all night.
