“Excellent Staff and Location”
Reviewed 12 September 2009

We came to the Tampa area for a concert at the Ford Amphitheater, and chose this hotel due to its close proximity to the venue and places to eat. Upon arrival, I was very impressed with how friendly and helpful the staff on duty were. The hotel itself is older, and the interior of the rooms is rather dated and in need of a renovation. *But* everything worked perfectly, and the room we stayed in (nonsmoking!) was *spotless*. Our vehicle was quite safe in the parking lot overnight, and at no time during my stay here did I feel unsafe. We've got another event coming up, and will be staying at this hotel again. I cannot stress enough how nice these people were; friendly faces are so rare these days.. a smile and pleasant attitude go a long way in my book.

Hotel is close to all of my major attractions, Ybor City for dining, Hard Rock Casino, Dallas Bull and Ford Amphitheater. The hotel is a bit older, however the rooms are very clean. Definitly would stay again!

NIGHTMARE Do NOT stay here:( You may think youll save $. You may pay for that thought forever. 7 cars robbed Days Inn Brandon Florida highway 60 May 9, 2009 early am hours.. Dont take your chances. Days Inn Brandon Florida said they were aware of constant car robberies to their patron's cars parked at the motel, yet security camera 1 located on back parking lot is pointed up to the sky & questionable as the if it is a real camera or not. They say they are having new cameras installed today? We were somewhat lucky comparing our losses (though in the hundreds) :( we know many lost so much more. VERY SAD:(

We had stayed at this motel years ago with no problems, so came back. We time we had no hot water three days in a row, in the morning when we wanted to take a shower. We complained to staff, they reset it only to fail during the day. Complaints did not get any response from staff or management, staff said nothing they could do. To top it all off, there is no security at this motel, nine vehicles including ours had windows broken and ransacked. One vehicle was stolen. Staff seemed indifferent to the guests problems and didn't seem to care. Sheriff's deputy indicated that this is an ongoing problem at this motel. I will not stay here again.

Dear OscarPensacola,
Thank you for posting your comments. We sincerely apologize for the lack of hot water during your stay, but more importantly the lack of response from the staff. We all know that problems may occur but for them not to be addressed at the property is highly unusual.
If you would be so kind as to contact the hotel so we may discuss your stay in more detail we would appreciate it.
Thank you again for your comments.

Stayed there for a Hockey Tournament and was disgusted by the condition of the rooms. I should have known when I checked in late at night through a hole in the glass. The best part of this hotel is that it is right off the interstate and across the street from a Hooters. There was free wireless and the pool was not too bad. The rooms were pretty bad. The box springs were visible with writing on them the carpets were nasty and the comforter was untouchable.
This place will be a great place if they go through the renovations that other Days Inns have done.

I checked in and checked right back out!
the hallway to the room was dirty and smelly
the motel room stunk from tobacco smoke
and mildew
I couldn't tolerate the smells
so I went right back to the lobby and
and checked out.
and drove 40 miles back home
instead of staying the night there
so i could catch the amtrak the next day
out from tampa,
I slept in my own house and felt wonderful
and will drive to tampa to catch the train,

The room could have been cleaner but overall it was okay for a quick sleep. The facilities all worked fine. Beds were uncomfortable. I felt "beat up" when waking. Should have been priced about $20 less.
