Tonight I was assigned room 211 and was horrified by the condition of the room. Filthy carpet, bed spread had cigarette burns, the beds and the furniture need to be taken to the dump, there was an 'easy' chair that looked like a cat had mauled it. After 3 minutes I got the hell out. The room smelled nasty.

First of all, one of the lights was broken. Second, there aren't any outlets that aren't already occupied, so in order to use one, you need to unplug something. The room was dirty under and behind all of the furniture: the dust made my allergies flare up like crazy and while I was sleeping, some strange sticky ball stuck itself to my arm. Also, it's not as close to the entrance of Busch Gardens as you might think! Even though it's across the street from the park (you can see SheKra from the hotel), the entrance is a 0.5 mile walk. To make things worse, the hotel doesn't have luggage storage, so if you're going to BG the day you're checking out, you need to bring your luggage with you to BG (which, thankfully, DOES have luggage storage). So if you're going to BG, stay at the Holiday Inn or LaQuinta which are right next to Days Inn and have a more pleasant stay (and make that 0.5 mile walk a nice one by not having to tote your luggage around!). Also, even the non-smoking room smelled like cigarettes!

As an older hotel, you have to expect that the carpet will have stains / high-traffic wear. Room #251 didn't strike me as unclean when I checked-in. I didn't feel unsafe, nor was there an inordinate noise level. However, the HVAC unit never would get warm / hot; cold air was all that was available. In the bathroom: at first it seemed that hot water was also not on the menu. After an extraordinary amount of time, though, you could've scalded a chicken! I was booked there from Monday night through Thursday morning. My room was tidied-up by housekeeping on Tuesday while I was away at my training class. The next day however (Wednesday), when I returned to the room at 4:30 p.m., I was disheartened to find that housekeeping hadn't touched the room. No made bed. No fresh towels. No replenished toiletries. Nothing. What hotel does business like this?? If you don't care about having your room attended to daily, then the rest of the amenities aren't really unbearable. I think that something like housekeeping being sporadic, though, is concerning.
